About This File

TO: LUCT is no doubt one of the classics of turn based tactical games, it can boast complex storyline with a memorable cast of characters and multiple endings, as well as a deep combat system with a vast arsenal of equipment, items and spells. Its PSP port can also serve as an example of how such things should be done, with the game getting not only a much needed facelift but also a thorough redesign of most combat elements.

Sadly, the game isn’t without faults, as some of the new features make it extremely prone to exploits which an experienced player can use to fully remove any challenge from the game. The main goal of this mod is to render such exploits more difficult, bringing weapons, classes and skills closer to the level they should perform at, as well as to each other. Its secondary goal is to provide tweaks to immersion, visuals and some of the more cumbersome game systems like crafting and endless skill farming.

This is still a work in progress so all feedback is welcome.

 

For installation instructions and more info check the included Readme file.

 

Major features:

  • Weapon, armor and consumable item rework. Equipment is more likely to do what you expect of it, 2H weapons will do a lot of damage and a tank in heavy armor will be hard to kill.
  • Additional items, spells and skills, as well as changes to the existing ones with a focus on improving the more unappealing choices.
  • Skills that grant stat bonuses, like Strengthen or Spellcraft, as well as static choices like Switfoot or Spell Ward were removed and compensated with higher stat differences between classes than in vanilla game.
  • A full Finishing move rebalance.
  • Most ways of gaining permanent stats were removed to reduce power creep in late game and increase options during early game.
  • The power of special characters was reduced across the board, they're about on par with each other now and not overwhelmingly stronger than generics.
  • Generic characters have more diverse templates that split into fighter, rogue, mage and generalist archetypes, their stats can differ a lot depending on which one you hire.
  • Significantly increased the levelling speed of slow skills, like Steal or Parry.
  • Most classes were tweaked, with emphasis on nerfing the strong ones and buffing the weak, many gained new tricks.
  • Monsters don't scale natural armor as high as before. With the changes to skills, their new role is high HP bullet sponges that take a lot of damage and use the TP gained to spam special moves.
  • Many items are easier to acquire, reducing the endgame tedium.
  • Visual changes to some items, special characters, skills and spells.
  • Streamlined crafting.

-  The third octopus won’t be able to spawn in chapter 2 aqueduct story battles, it’s probably too early for quite that much tentacle action

 

 

Equipment

-  A new earth elemental Whip has been added to the game, it drops from Male Dragonlord in PotD - Floor 45

-  Rosebud isn’t female exclusive anymore, it’s up to the player to decide if it’s manly enough to be used by the bros

-  A new ice elemental instrument has been added to the game, it can be crafted with Instrument Enchiridion in your own kitchen

-  A new snapdragon spear has been added to the game, it drops from Female Draug (spear) in PotD - Floor 100 story battles and Female Slayer (spear) in PotD - Floor 100 random battle. If you already have the cursed spear, this will take its slot and you’ll have to get it again

 

Classes

 

-  Cleric and Priest can’t use heavy helms/boots/gloves anymore, they should still be tough enough to function in all roles, but we’ll see

-  Spellblade/Valkyrie can transfer 2H Katana

-  Terror Knight can transfer Whips, probably not a great choice but it’s kinda fitting

-  Trickster can transfer Fists

-  Blade Knight got Shadowbreak instead of Mindblast, it’s now a Lich skill and that would give him two skills from a single generic class

-  Knight Commander lost access to Shadowbreak for the same reason

 

 

Spells and Abilites

 

-  Stormbound air spell was renamed to Sky Pillar. It now removes 40% of current HP from a single target and inflicts Bound. Most likely by compressing the air above the target, but that’s probably more physics than the setting could handle. The important thing is that it works
