DOFUS Touch Osamodas Redesign

Objectives of the Redesign


The objective of the Osamodas class redesign is make it more strategical and give it greater potential in handling its Summons. We want to encourage Osamodas characters to play with their Summons, whether it's by using them to move around, offer support to allies or simply to inflict damage.

The current Osamodas gameplay didn't suit us because the player was too confined to a role of pure support, remaining hidden behind their Summons. Their abilities were blocked as soon as they found themself trapped in close combat. Playing with the Summons was also a problem because it was too dependent on the arbitrary decisions of the AI, which can sometimes be difficult to grasp.

Our main lines of thought for this redesign were the following:
 
  • How can we motivate Osamodas characters to take part in combat alongside Summons? Offer them greater abilities to escape when in trouble: Tofu symbiosis, Gobball symbiosis, Substitution. Give them the opportunity to help their short- and medium-range Summons.
  • How can we provide a support role that is less direct to their allied players? Effects requiring initial action: Martyr, special Symbiosis spells or a sacrifice: Bestial Heal, Substitution, etc.
  • How can we strengthen control over Summons and make them less random, especially in PvM? Offer more ways to influence the behavior of Summons: Symbiosis, Determination and Tracked state, Lashing Claw.
  • How can we encourage Osamodas characters to focus on characteristics and not on Vitality and resistance alone? Summons now benefit from the primary and some of the secondary characteristics of the caster. Optimizing your Summons now requires you to optimize your equipment!

We want to encourage Osamodas gameplay around renewing Summons rather than accumulating them, which is why many of the spells now require one or more Summons to be sacrificed in order to be cast.

With these changes, the Osamodas class will have three distinct elementary paths, each offering a balanced number of spells, to which the utility spells will be added.
 
  • The Air path, based on mobility and positioning/movement;
  • The Water path, based on boosting the damage of the Osamodas and their Summons;
  • The Fire path, based on heals and debuffs.

Osamodas characters will have only five different Summons, but they'll have better durability and capabilities. Actually, these Summons will receive part of the summoner's vitality as well as part of the characteristic and elementary damage of the Summons's corresponding element. The goal is to encourage players to adopt equipment that isn't based only on durability (Vitality, resistance, etc.) but also on characteristics and damage in order to offer more diversity in the choice of equipment.

In addition to the primary characteristics, some Summons also have other characteristics of the caster depending on the spells and role they have (see the summary at the end of the devblog).
