Looks fabulous, Aurelain, though I haven't gotten round to testing all those out yet. The amount of skills is a bit overwhelming, really. :)

Aurelain: "About the wheel: an interesting thing to notice is that the Demon Lord is the only class that requires 5 skill families to achieve absolute skill."



...that answered to a question I had in mind: "Light Magic"-skill is really needed to get "Twilight"-ability (I didn´t doubt that earlier, but it isn´t "pointed out" when you click that ability). :) Quite strange actually that demon lords requires "Light Magic" instead of much more suitable "Destructive Magic" in my opinion to reach ultimate ability..



Edit: Another interesting point could be that there´s difference in total amount of abilities:

Academy 64/64 (=4+12x5)

Haven 60/64

Sylvan 63/64

Dungeon 60/64

Inferno 62/64

Necropolis 60/64

Wow, it's never been so clear how annoying the skill system will be. ;)

It's a great wheel, wish the interface in H5 was this good.

I am impressed!



What I'll suggest now id making high definition (let's say 2048x2048) shots of these wheels for each faction to print on A4.

Hmm, one little thing though: isn't it so that the number of abilities cannot exceed the number of skilllevels? To get two abilities for the same skill, at least advanced skill is needed? My memory may fail me, but if someone bothers to check and confirm it, then for all abilities in the innermost coloured circle advanced/expert skill level could be listed as a prerequiste...

I have a question about that Guardian Angel ability. It says an Angel is summoned to the battlefield when all of your troops are dead.



Is it just 1 Angel? If so, how is that really going to help? Unless your enemy is down to a few units themselves, one Angel isn't going to do anything. Now, if it were an Archangel, it might be a little different as he could ressurrect one of the fallen units as well.

Wow. oh Wow!!! This is sooooo unique Aurelain, superb job! I agree with Dragonfire, it would be nice download the the skill-wheel so you can have it on desktop. but I don't think you can download Macromedia Flash Player to use on your desktop as I think it is strickly for the Web.. but it sure would be nice to at least have this wheel on one's desktop or implemented into the game.

Brilliant! But...

Wizards and Warlocks can get destructive magic skills of the inner circle without learning destructive magic at all? That doesn't make sense. How is that represented in the game (i.e. doesn't it say, "attribute comes from skill X", but there would be no skill X...?)?
