Champions' Nerf - A Mod for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (WiiU)

Updates

Added alternate Revali's Gale option 2y
  • Addition An option to reduce Revali's Gale's height

They're Champion Abilities, not God-Powers

The Champion Abilities in Breath of the Wild are ridiculously overpowered. As fun and enjoyable as they can be, they're over the top and we all know it. This simple mod tries to balance them out.

Changes implemented:
  • Mipha's Grace: No more yellow bonus hearts.
  • Revali's Gale: Lifts you higher and faster, reduced to 2 uses at a time.
  • Daruk's Protection Reduced to 2 uses at a time. (Would like to do something more fun, but so far no luck.)
  • Urbosa's Fury: Stuns longer and does 3 times the damage, but can only be used once at a time.
If you like the sound of these edits, give Champions' Nerf a try. Make those powers a little more sane and a little less ridiculous.

I also provide an alternate version with makes a different change to Revali's Gale, letting it have 4 uses but reducing the lift height (still increasing the lift speed, though).

Please note: This mod is in BNP format, and thus requires BCML 2.x to install. You should thank me for this, as otherwise it would be around 100MB and incompatible with tons of other mods.

    Thought i'd ask hear first, if you are still around to answer? So I decided i'd make my own slight tweak to this, and double the timer of Miphas Grace from 24 minutes to 48 minutes. It looks like I found the right file and edited the right file as I can "see" your changes so to speak. AFAIK I correctly repacked the files with this simple change however it appears to not work...it still has a cooldown of 24 minutes. I then tried to add back one heart instead, changing 0 to 4 (4=1 heart yes?) and this hasn't worked either, in fact...no change i've made has saved at all...it's all just remembered your changes. Do I need to not have Miphas Grace yet for the change to make effect? I tried this but it still only "remembered" your changes...it's like nothing i've done matters, i even tried delete random lines of code but that still didn't do anything lol, am I being stupid? Any help would be great.

    So I only have Revali's gale in my current playthrough, but with the mod installed, I get the effect of getting more height, but I still have 3 uses. Any idea why I would be getting that?

    Very cool concept! How does this work for the upgraded versions?
