Classfixes Part 3

Whats is this mod?

This mod is the 3rd part of the Classfixes series, it adds the Blood Witch (Ingame Character Name: Ema Lockwell), which is a revamped/changed version of the original Blood Mage by Llama_Mage and reworks the Skilltree and skills of the vanilla Hex Mage.

Was that even necessary?

We all enjoyed our playthoughts of Vanilla Outward but small things there, out of character thing elsewhere, lacking of option somewhere else, such things created a spark in me for what is possible for those skilltrees that could make them viable options for every combination or even make them stand on their own as main picks.

Did you change or edited the Skills?

I did edit most of the Hex Mage skills and all the Blood Mage skills. So any mod that edit those skills may be possibly incompatible.

Will there be more reworked Skilltrees?

This is the Part 3 of the 3 Parts series of mods. You can find the rest of them uploaded in the Thunderstore.

Future plans

More balance.
