This mod is focused on adding more items and ways to become a shapeshifter.

Armor sets built from boss remains to impersonate them and gain their abilities.

Other things like emblems, coming at a higher cost but only taking up an accessory slot to obtain the shape.

I have to say, that sprite is pretty damn good. i can't wait to see what the moon lord set looks like.
Will you be considering adding compatibility with other mods such as Thorium, Spirit Mod and Calamity?

I'll try my best! I have some trouble with the sprites for now as it seems using 1x1 is not something to do.

But once I manage to do all the vanilla bosses and I'm still willing to mod, I'll for sure look at the bosses from other mods!

hi, i saw this mod in my mod browser, i was very interested in this mod. I have some ideas- 1, you should be able to transform into the boss (and use it's attacks) for a limited time, as the armor so far are easily outclassed. the mobs you resemble or ''summon'' will be friendly and attack your enemies like, is you're king slime, slimes will fight for you, if you are EoC, eyes will fight for you and so on.

The armors are outclassed? Damn it, I thought they were too powerful, Lol. Also, I didn't noted it, but similar enemies already are non hostile to the player. Some of them at least.

And for the transform part, welll, it sounds like a real pain to do :p and that's already what I'm trying to do : Having abilities of the bosses.

just tested it out, Disadvantages: demon eyes are the only eye that is friendly, i get 2 hit by devourers when wearing EoC armor, king slime armor is a bit TOO fast... every time you fling out of control maybe make it less fast and give you jump boost? skeletron is a bit hard to use, throwers and magic users usually want to stay out of trouble and not get hit so skeletron armor is kind of hard to use.
Advantages: friendly mobs are fun and good if you want to not be annoyed, skeletron armor is pretty tanky, slime armor is fast and the extra slime minion is useful. the
EoC armor is useful for melee (even though it is easily replaceable later on) and the armors are over all pretty neat looking!

Thanks for the feedback!

Well, devourers are not eyes, they are linked to the Eater of Worlds, which means that it's his armor that will make them non-hostile.

Being fast with the King Slime armor is NOT intended, can you give me more context?

Skeletron armor curse when you get hit is a bonus to defend yourself, not a weapon. The more damage oriented bonus is when you hit enemies with bones(throwing) and skulls from the armor/book of skulls on a future update(for the skulls).

As for the EoC armor, it's a special case. I don't really want to give more armor as the power given is really powerful, you basically act like the EoC end form, almost no defense, powerful charges and speed with high damage. But a single hit can kill you. It's a dodger's favorite armor(I mean, try to fight with almost no health, it's fun). I might give it a little more armor, but eh.

btw im not saying that u should make devourers friendly , i was just saying the defense was a bit too low. by demon eyes being the only eye that is friendly, i mean other eye mobs such as the wandering eye isn't friendly. the King Slime armor had a glitch/bug when i first used it, wearing it gave me a slime particle when i walked ad it gave me a speed buff, after i reloged it stopped. , the cursed skulls it shoots doesnt do BARELY enough dmg, it moves extremely slow and really only does about 100 dmg.

This is great but I think it would be nice if the armor sets could be equiped in the vanity slots and tweak it's stats so you can impersonate a boss as long as you want else the amount of def etc will probably make some armors less usable as time goes by. If that cannot be done you could make it so you can improve the armors with some boss drops or ores or weapons.

xD I'm not good at spriting but I have an idea for king slime.... the king slime staff - you can make it rain slimes at the area your cursor is in, counts as summon dmg.
