[WotC] The Valkyrie Class Mod

Description
XCOM’s specialists have already proven how useful the GREMLIN can be, but valkyries take it one step further, trading personal weapon damage for powerful support abilities that both heal and enhance the lethality of the squad.

For those who want to use this mod with Musashi's RPG Overhaul, check out the plugin here.

Class summary

The valkyrie starts off with three squaddie abilities: Healing Stream, Damage Buff, and Valkyrie. The former two are the bread-and-butter of the class and, while not limited by any cooldown or charge cost, require targets to be within a certain range to use. Valkyrie, meanwhile, temporarily boosts the frequency at which Healing Stream and Damage Buff can be cast, which can be used either offensively or defensively depending on the situation.

The valkyrie carries the bullpup and the GREMLIN into battle. The bullpup is generally reserved for self-defense as most of the time the valkyrie will be busy buffing or healing allies. It’s also advantageous to upgrade the valkyrie’s GREMLIN as soon as possible, as Healing Stream and Damage Buff’s values are based on its tech level.

Class highlights

Damage Buff
By default, allows an ally to do +1 damage for the rest of the turn. Damage Buff really shines when it comes to securing kills; for instance, early-game troopers are once again guaranteed one-shots on Commander and Legendary difficulty. The bonus also applies to almost any attack a soldier can perform (except grenades, though this can be changed with the Uninhibited ability), meaning a damage-buffed Templar or combat-protocol specialist can suddenly become a lot more dangerous for ADVENT.

Resurrect
When a soldier starts bleeding out, XCOM’s specialists face a lengthy process involving several medikits and Revival Protocol to patch them up and get them back in the fight. Valkyries, on the other hand, can do all of this in one quick action, instantly reviving an ally and restoring a significant amount of health at the same time. It can be used on unconscious allies as well, and can be paired with another ability, I’m With You, that makes allies guaranteed to bleed out upon taking a fatal hit.

Valkyrie
This namesake ability can do a lot more than just allow Healing Stream and Damage Buff to be used multiple times in a turn. With an entire perk branch dedicated to its development, a valkyrie can wind up with an ability that heals them for free, gives four actions per turn, and can be active for half the time during a mission. Heavily investing in Valkyrie means forgoing many of the other abilities that are available to learn, but the results can be pretty spectacular.

A full list of abilities (including the GTS and random ones obtainable from the Training Centre) can be found in the Discussions tab.

After finally getting my training facility going everything seems to be working as intended. I don't know about the GTS cause I'm not to that point yet. I'm glad I read the comments though when I was a squaddie.

@jaco29xhs @life.fjdi.91 @KingKDB17 If you open the XComClassData.ini and change the +bAllowAWCAbilities=0 to a 1 I 'think' it'll fix the problem.

Hope it gets fixed soon

Great mod - Thanks for making this mod! However I have a same problem with jaco29xhs. Valkyrie class in my game does not gain any soldier AP :(

The Valkyrie class in my game doesn't gain any soldier AP, nor can they be access the Training Center. Does anyone know why?

But if you compare Val to specialist (with medical expert upgrades)... I'd prefer Val to be in my medical team. The healing stream has no cool down and it doesn't end the turn if being used as first action. So he can heal 8 HP every turn at even early game. Combining the unlimited number of use, unless the soldier is one-shot or the squad is so heavily surrounded, I can't imagine how a soldier could be killed.
The distance limit is nothing enough to be considered or worried. If you did go through Xcom (2012), you are used to have medics who can only heal adjacent units.
I don't mean any offence. You have my big respect to make a good mod. Thank you. I understand you simply can't satisfy everybody. This is just my view.

While it's true you can spam Healing Stream indefinitely, it heals slightly less than Medical Protocol, and its limited range can pose an issue if someone is wounded while they're away from the squad. (Do they run back to the valkyrie or does the valkyrie run up to them?) If anything, I find Damage Buff to have more potential for being overpowered just because of how many attacks and abilities it can synergize with.

Is the healing stream kind of OP?
