* DifficultButAwesome: Oozemancers. They are Zigur-aligned by default, meaning they can't use a good amount of otherwise very useful items, and they actually ''lose'' hit points per level rather than gain them, but they are nigh-unanimously considered the biggest GameBreaker class due to their summoning abilities and the relatively low cost of using them.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Steam technology is unknown in Maj'Eyal proper. Tinker characters can nonetheless be unlocked for the Age of Ascendancy campaign; this option is "not lore-canonical, but fun!" Likewise, tinkers can appear as escorts in Maj'Eyal, and you can learn their abilities (which in turn causes tech items to become available in the main campaign for that playthrough).

** The Zigur are a KnightTemplar AntimagicalFaction who punish even the smallest use or even collaboration with magic with a painful death. They send (randomly-generated) patrols out who will hunt down and attack any magic-using characters. These patrols have random player skills, and can contain archmages, necromancers, demonologists, and the like, all of them wielding magical staves and arcane-powered items.

* {{Cyborg}}: Instead of infusions or runes, steamtech uses implants; steam generators and medical injectors are implanted into the user's body. An implanted generator is necessary to use steam power, so all Tinkers qualify as this.

Additionally, the expansion adds five new Prodigies (available to anyone who meets the prerequisite, not just tinkers), most of them themed around cybernetic implants.

* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: Played with. Wizards die a LOT early on, whereas Warriors... die a LOT early on. Both can get to very respectable levels of power, but Warriors are far more reliant on items. Meanwhile, a Wizard that loses his or her spellbook... [[OhCrap ugh.]] [[GameBreaker Summoners, on the other hand...]]
* LostForever: By default off, but you can disable the system that protects unidentified artifacts from being lost, causing them to be lost forever if you leave a dungeon floor with them on (the tradeoff is that you are told, ''explicitly'', that an artifact exists on a floor you enter). In addition, any artifact that is [=IDed=] and later lost is lost for good, even with this option on.
* MythologyGag / GeniusBonus: Lots. Tolkien fans will recognize a ''lot'' of the true artifacts in the game.

* HumanSubspecies: The Highers are the purebred descendants of humans who were experimented on by halflings during the Age of Allure. They're longer-lived and gifted with great magical potential, but don't advance as quickly as Cornacs and lack their versatility.

** [[spoiler: In the Age of Allure, this was nearly universal. Both the Nargol Empire and the Conclave experimented on humans and other races, along with other delving into magics that they really shouldn't, and each group created a new race from humans. Nargol experimental subjects became the Higher, while the Conclave's laborers and [[SuperSoldier Super Soldiers]] were [[OurOgresAreHungrier Ogres]].]]

* MindRape: The mind damage type does this to enemies.

* MindRape: The mind damage type does this to enemies. Cursed do it ''naturally,'' by means of an aura of palpable bad mojo called a Gloom that surrounds them and constantly forces all enemies that draw near to make saves to avoid being overwhelmed by it.

* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler: The Weissi carry out their plans through psychic precognition that is so potent and detailed it is essentially the same as experiencing the events. Meaning they have lived through every timeline in which they were exterminated and felt exactly how much the universe wants to erase them. Small wonder they've gone a little bent.]]

** The ogres of the Conclave Vault [[spoiler: were created when the various soldiers therein popped themselves into the ogre transformation tanks so that they could remain in stasis until the Conclave found them. Some of the transformations went bad, and the transformed humans were left as nothing more than "ogrish masses."]]

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: The Chief Councillor of the Steam Giants isn't directly elected; the voters choose the competition that the candidates will participate in to decide the Chief. Chief Councillor Tantalos was elected by a contest of fisticuffs. (His opposing candidate ran on a Tabletop Wargaming platform.)
