Dragon Age 2 Talent Builder: Alpha 9 changelog

A long overdue data update for the Dragon Age 2 Talent Builder! This brings all abilities up to date with the latest patch, including the addition of scaling ability damage numbers for companions, as well as the addition of the Mark of the Assassin DLC companion, Tallis.

I've still got a UI and backend code update percolating, but I thought I'd take a break to release and write up a changelog for the significant data update. Saved builds should not be affected by the data update and fixes, you're safe.

To Do

  • Update the Warrior class graphics with higher quality images
  • Tweak display to better show abilities available for selection.
  • Add build plan notation options, like at what level to save points, denote at what level additional talent points should be spent
  • Add a display for the number of points spent in each tree
  • Add requirements checking to the drag-and-drop list so that you can't generate invalid build urls (e.g. take an upgrade before you take the ability it is upgrading)
  • Add an indicator to show whether or not the current state of the build is saved
  • Cache JSON parses for performance
  • Refactor code
  • Either make the builder/planner compatible with mobile browsers or create a mobile app version
