So I'm creating my own class, but...

since I'm new to making my own class (bought this game just last week), I learned about skill making by examining the skills of existing classes, namely:

1. GnaReffotsirk - StormRider class (rapid strike, rollback and sprint)

2. BlacK - Nethermage Class (blast imbue)

3. Season - Ice Queen class (icespring)

I'm probably going to have to copy and change the deflector shield skill from the Airbender class as well. My class needs a skill like it..

Rollback, sprint and rapid strikes are mostly the same, but I've changed the other skills quite a bit.

I'm going to give them them credit if I'm allowed to post it. Would it be okay to post my class?

    As long as you are giving due credit, most people are okay with you using their stuff.

    This is a pretty open community, so we share and let others use. If we were closed, then you would never learn to mod.

    Okay, that's great to hear! Thanks for taking the time to tell me what I wanted to know.
  • Can't wait to play your class MrDressUp! :)

    In addition to what has already been said, you might want to contact the authors of those mods and ask for permission to do this, while noting to them you will provide credit

    I guess this might be optional, though (I am new to this community)
