SirGagz - The Venalguard Class (DE)

Wield otherworldly cursed powers to obliterate foes, such as the corrupting jade magic that can control the battlefield or the raw brutal power of affliction techniques.

This mod adds a new unique duel wield focused class preset bringing new status ailments and skills with custom and completely new graphics/effects.

This is a dual wielding melee orientated class with the addition of a variety of magical attacks. A quick and powerful skill set with an adaptive playstyle depending on the type of stance active. If you like the magic swordsman archetype then this might be your cup of tea.

New Class Preset

Start your adventure with 3 useful core skills and destroy your foes!

Deadly New Status Ailments

Inflict new deadly status effects!

Husk: An immobilizing effect resisted by physical armor. In addition to being unable to act, the target takes increased physical damage.

Afflicted: Target takes physical armor damage over time or vitality if no armor is present.

Playstyle Altering Stances

In the midst of battle change your stance to make the ultimate clutch!

Battle Scars: Channel a bloodthirsty stance that grants lifesteal on all attacks with increased movement speed and dodging but magic resistances are lowered.

Impossible Odds: Reflect all attacks that strike you for 50% of their damage and boost your Physical/Magic armor. However dodging is impossible and damage is reduced by 20%.

Meditation of the Reaper: Fall into a trance creating an aura of murderous thoughts that slows and weakens nearby enemies, lowering enemy physical resistances and boosting your attack. You cannot move while in this stance.

Unique Trader

Meet the Venalguard himself in every act to learn new powers and the origins of these accursed powers!

You can find him:
  • Act 1: On the broken bridge before entering Fort Joy.
  • Act 2: Onboard the Lady Vengence.
  • Act 3: Also on the Lady Vengence.
  • Act 4: Inside Arx city next to the cheese lady.

Original Art

All custom artwork is hand painted by me.

Please do not modify or reupload this mod anywhere else.


  • Stance skills require another skill called "Revoke Stance" if you want to deactivate an active stance, otherwise you have to activate another. You can find the skillbook from the Venalguard.

  • If you encounter any issues please let me know!

Nice mod. But it would be nice if it were based off only warfare giving people more choice as to weapons. Also the husking should imo go through armor to be properly used the whole game.

I am enjoying this mod. I like it conceptually, and I also enjoy that it doesn't feel overtuned or inconsistent like some of the other class mods out there. My one complaint with the mod is that it doesn't really lend itself well to skill independence, meaning that I am unable to play as "just" a Venalgard, and have to supplement the class with skills from at least one other class. Now I tend to enjoy hybrid builds anyway, but what I'm really getting at here is that at least with the limited skillset you get at the beginning, the Venalgard doesn't feel self-sufficient. I should point out that I exclusively play in Tactician mode, so that probably has a lot to do with things. But even so, I would like Venalgard to be able to stand on it's own a bit more, and the biggest obstacle to this is just simply a lack of unique skills.

I'm not trying to be overly critical here, since I do really enjoy the mod. I'm just giving some feedback on my experience so far.

I can't seem to find the Impossible Odds stance book. I'm level 5, but the vendor doesn't have it yet. Any ideas?

The concept of this mod is spectacular however, it won't show up in the steamapps folder or the Larian Studios mod folder whatsoever.
