Banshee Class Mod v0.9a

The Banshee is a feared harbinger of death. Her wailing forebodes unspeakable horrors.
Drawing on her spectral essense infused with ember, she is both physical and ethereal, a beautifull woman and terrifying apparition. Swift and deadly, she is a force to be reckoned with.

If you wish to integrate Banshee class with Jarcho's Class Compilation mod, download this file and follow the instructions. [v1.2 now includes tier 3 armor]

If you wish to integrate Banshee class with Darkfirebird's class/pet compilation mod, download this file and follow the instructions.

Udinbak's Pet mod (75pets) has now been seperated from the Banshee Class Mod and can be found here:

BleachMad's Death Maiden class - a variation of the banshee - can be downloaded here and is fully compatible with the banshee and JCC patch's

Please rememeber to let me know what you think. I'm open to suggestions/advice/unwarranted praise ;p
Constructive critisism will always be taken into consideration for future updates.

This is my first mod, so I'm going to release updates as often as I feel a new feature is ready, and/or as bugs are fixed. I don't want to make the mistake of releasing a large update, only to find more bugs than I can track down.
I wanted to give a feeling of otherworldy speed and power, a death dealing phantom if you will.

Fast run speed. plus extended reach.
3 unique level 25 custom skills- Banshee Aura, Pandora's Box & Wailing Banshees (more skills to come)
14 skills per tab.
All tier 1 skills start at level 1. (9 skills)
Starting gold set to 999999999 (since I hate having to worry about gold, you can change this in the /media/units/players/banshee/banshee.dat file if you wish)

At the moment I need feedback so I can balance the class, it may even be similar to existing mods so any feedback will be appreciated. I plan on adding custom skills once I've figured how, and the finished class will end up with all three tabs completely filled.

Known issues & upcoming features:
The 2 new passive sikills (Strike Terror & Spectral Escape) still don't quite work as intended. I'll leave this version here untill I've found a solution.

Since I am using existing skills, and since I simply put them in the skills tabs in different rows, the level requirements to raise the skill level from 1 to 2 will be related to it's origional row/tier. However to raise the skill from 0 to 1 requires a level relevent to the row it currently occupies(ie. 5/10/15/20/25 depending on it's tier). I'll have to figure out how to change that, although I'm also interested to find out how the dynamics actually play out as people level up. It might be something worth keeping or adapting, depending on the feedback. I'll be adding custom skills, changing existing skills for a more class orientated custom equivalent, as well as moving them around for balance as I receive feedback. I'll also be updating and finalizing her body skin for v1, trying work out how to make her actually scream like a banshee, as well as customising the armor in further updates.

I will be adding features over the next few weeks, be sure so check often for updates as they are released.

I need feedback in order to improve and develope this Class Mod. I'll do the best I can, but one mans opinion does not make a balanced class.
