RIP in peace edition

>What is Grim Dawn
Grim Dawn is an ARPG made by a few left over developers from Iron Lore Entertainment who also made Titan Quest along with a few other devs including one D1/D2 designer. Currently you can't really pirate it because it breaks NPCS and quests (custom DRM I'm guessing) but there is a DRM free version planned for launch.

>What are some features
Dual Class System
Faction-Based Questing
Refined Loot Drops
300+ Hero Monsters
Destructible Environments
Dynamic Weather
Recipe-Based Crafting
Modding Tools (Future)
DRM Free Version (At launch in February 2016)
Survival Mode (think endless dungeon) (for all backers)

>>127786831


>>127787061
Thanks, was leaning toward nightblade or demolitionist myself. The dagger I have gives a point to a nightblade skill; do I need to invest a point in that skill to get the +1 to it or will speccing into Nightblade be enough?

>>127787129
>>127787204
Didn't know I could respec things. I guess that'll be introduced later down the line, but it's good to know I'm not locked in. I have tons of ideas for characters and the ability to respec is going to be great.

>>127787153
Thanks, was thinking of using the blood curse DoT with the Curse of Weakness to layer up a lot of blood damage and further boost the dot while maybe setting up a killing field with traps or AoEs, but it doesn't look like the Demolitionist has any decent traps like I was hoping. DoTs for trash and heavy hitting specials for bosses. I was hoping a plaguesmith type build would have been viable/ possible though.

>>127787345
One of the character builds I want to try on a different build is a Shaman/ Occultist zookeeper. How many pets can you have active at one time?

>>127787526
It does make it a bit tough. The eldar fire titian thing I found was easy enough, just kite him around and keep the DoT up. The monsters that have auto heal kick in that outdoes my DoT is a pain though, but now that I know I can get refunds for points spent I can experiment and try things freely.

At least 8 with items and devotions. There is a point when you reach too many pets though.
>>
>>127788956
And the Storm Crow is the best one anyway.
>>
>>127788383
>do I need to invest a point in that skill to get the +1 to it
Yes, you cannot +1 a skill with no points in it.

>How many pets can you have active at one time?
I don't believe there's a cap so you're only limited by how many pets you have access to.
My friend's conjurer had three variety of hellhound, the crow, briarthorn, black scourge, a skeleton, and primal spirit. I might be forgetting some summons from granted item skills. Point is, you can roll deep.
>>
>>127788956
My Conjurer has up to 9 pets. 10 if I swap out an item. But 9 is far more than enough. They block eachother all the time.
>>
>>127789269

More like 4 is too much many of the times. One of them will always be wandering around waiting for his turn to hit the boss .
>>
>>127789269
They don't have clipping, what's happening is only 3 can attack one target at a time.
>>
>>127788956
>>127789269
>>127789462
Noted. Thanks guys, I'll log that and keep it saved up for the next character.

>>127789250
Thanks; figured as much but wanted to make sure. Was hoping that this crawler would be different in that regard seeing as how the skill is one I'd have to sink 20 points into mastery to even be able to access.
>>
YES, ANOTHER SACRIFICE

Do you think they'll change those enemies' "female" voices? And what about voice acting?
>>
>>127789781
just to make sure I'm not crazy.
are you implying that the female voices are just pitch shifted males?
>>
GD has shitty pet AI, the same enemy can't be attacked by more than 3 pets iirc
even if they are in range and don't block each other, they just won't target it
>>

Can you still get legendaries from Elite BoC, even at level 85? I'm getting empowered epics, but no legendaries yet, am I just unlucky?
>>
>>127790201
hold on, there's a level cap to when legendary equips drop per difficulty?
>>
Anyone else have problems with random areas of ground sparking like items or there or get sounds/ animations and even models of loot dropping, but your unable to pick it up?

Just started noticing that last night.
>>
>>127789993
Indeed.
Also I think putting the character face next to the dialogue box isn't the best choice, they're all generic crap, artworks would be better especially for main characters like ulgrim and creed.
And for the love of god I want a bigger 3d model of my character when I open up the inventory.
>>
>>127790536
I don't think so since I'm getting empowered epics, but after 4 BoC runs without a single legendary, I'm really starting to wonder
>>
>>127790704

there's no better way to get legendaries

Anyone know if cast speed affects storm totem? Does it increase their cast rate or can I just ignore cast speed?

>>127790592
do you mean Broken Items?
sometimes monsters drop what they were wearing/using but you can't pick it up unless I'm mistaken.

>>127790620
Now that you mention it, I can hear it.
also Agreed, portraits should be digitally painted.
I want dyes/the ability to change armor appearance, maybe do something where you can break down an item and get one of its bonuses and then for a one-time deal apply it to another piece of equipment.
I feel like that's been done before, who's done that before?
>>
>>127790806
But then I have to grind reputation first.
...What's a good route to run for maximum chance of running into nemesis spawns?
>>
>>127790956
Steps of Torment seems to do the trick for me. Undead rep is easy to lose, and the steps always has the same nemesis in the same spot early into the dungeon.
>>
>>127791067
>>127790956
Steps, Ikon, Bastion
don't forget to do bounties, they also give negative rep with stuff like undead or death's vigil for example.
>>
Died 60 times to the final boss.

>>
is it worth using a shield if you don't go into soldier?

The only thing I'd really want from soldier is the +physique and health, and the +shield block chance.
>>
>>127791247

How badly do you have to fuck up your build to die to ANY boss 60 times?
>>
>>127791621
iirc augments/components in shields only "activate" if the shield is used. Off-hands stack directly with main hand
>>127791701
final boss is hard as dicks
>>
>>127791621
there's no point in getting a shield if you don't have 100% block
you can use bulwark for an easy walkthrough and 50 mastery is a shitload of stats

I'd be down with that. If we get anything it'll probably be DLC at best though.

>>127789462

>>127789506
And on some bosses (like log, hive queen) only 1 can hit the boss at a time. And reportedly (I've noticed this and there are complaints about it on the forums) that if you use the pet-attack skill and the pets can not target the primary target you selected, they'll walk around aimlessly even if there are other targets right next to them to hit.

Pretty buggy. Also starting to get tired of my Conjurer @ ~72. Gearing is terrible for it. Impossible to get good resists since every pet item had god-awful useless stats other than the pet stuff.

>>127789996
I thought more than 3 can attack a target if there's no obstruction (ie 4 around the boss in a circle) I could be wrong though.

You will have to use Cadence if you do not have another autoattack class with it. You can safely neglect it later in the game when you craft Shard of Beronath weapon component which gives you a really good autoattack ability on it.

Soldier/Arcanist or Soldier Occultist (Soldier/Demo but you really have to build up Fire % to be really good)

For Cadence you should put 0 when you get Mistborn Talisman or Shard of Beronath

I think it would encourage more playing/farming and give the player even more customization. RNG would make creating a bullshit item more difficult, and the one-shot aspect would make you want to hold out for the good bonus.
You could make the augment soulbound but not the item it's applied to to encourage trading.

Okay, it's dumb.

first of all, engine is shit and can't handle teleportation, which is why all blink strikes are coded as +500% movement speed
second of all, GD isn't DMC so there's no need for *teleporting behind you*
more often than not you won't even kite because you will get slowed and have to fight for your life or use one of the many oh shit buttons

There's no way retaliation will be viable in Ultimate. I mean, sure, you can probably make it work somewhat on regular mobs and melee heroes, but it would take years to kill anything.
Also, what would you do with ranged mobs?
>>
>>127821156
getting hit seems like a bad plan for ultimate

>>
>>127821617
because you can't not get hit at all and soldier has unrivaled survivability
>>
>>127821292
>>127821332

Your reasoning is dumb, retalation are melee hits that don't rely on your swing and use other dmg modifiers, saying things like "it doesn't work on ranged" is like saying that melee hits are not ranged.

Saying "it relies on enemies hitting you" is like saying your melee relies on you hitting the enemy, if you have low OA you will not hit, if you have high DA you will not get hit so you do the same you would do for melee, you build around it.

Retalation is simply extra melee attacks that rely on the enemy to activate, and you're gonna get hit when you're melee, regardless if you built around retalation or not.

I'm probably falling for some bait here, but I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt:
Yes, but retaliation damage does not trigger on ranged attackers.
I'm actually not sure of whether or not it relies on OA either, but if it does, you're probably gonna run into problems hitting enemies in Ultimate, and if it doesn't, it can't crit (You can get pretty ridiculous numbers of retaliation, though)
What I'm saying is, you can't rely on retaliation only. You need something else as well, to deal with ranged attackers and situations where you get mobbed by 4+ heroes at the same time, and can't tank them for extended periods of time.

Witch Hunter or Warlock for DEE?

Elite is fun. I like the way this game handles difficulty. It's not a gearcheck, more of a check on your ability to adapt to damage types. It's a fancy way of saying "stack resist or get killed by shrimps", but it's better than D3's "farm legendary sets to be viable".
>>
>>127834879
exactly how is this different? If you don't have the resist you obviously have to go farming. Its the exact problem I'm facing now, with trivial white mobs chunking at my health due to low resists.

Haven't found an upgrade yet that would let me play competently in about 5-10 hrs of farming

You don't really need to grind to get those resists though. Just playing through the game gives you more than enough to get whatever resists you need to a suitable level.

So if I'm currently halfway through elite, do you guys think I should stop and try to grind a faction to nemesis? It seems like theres a number of level 60-65 legendaries but by the time I would get nemesis through the regular game, I'd probably be level 70 and the better ones would be dropping and those old ones would sort of be "lost" forever

Im assuming this is how it works or am I wrong and you still get level 58-65 legendaries from nemesis chests when you're a high level in ultimate?

Well, we can see some kind of the ladder based on character level... Expansion is already promised and sales going well i think, keeping in mind, that company is quite small yet.

Why don't they just make it so that Hardcore characters, when they die, can be brought back to life as Softcore characters?

That way you preserve the purity of HC runs, but people who die in HC and want to keep going with the same character can still do so.

AFAIK they count as a passive buff when they're active. So it should affect AAR.

It's easy to test though. Put AAR in your attack slot. Look at your DPS stat. Activate Witchfire. Look at your DPS stat again.

Hey guys
Came back to this game and wanted to make a firestrike pistol build.
Which class should I pick as secondary? Arcanist or Soldier?

Is the build viable/good for the highest difficulty?
>>
So I'm level a level 20 nightblade right now and starting to have survivability (and energy) issues.

I'm thinking about a physical build so I guess I'll pick soldier as my second class. Should I still keep using Lethal Gambit then or switch to Cadence?

I do want to make a poison build some time but I was thinking of going generic caster mode for that. I know melee is stronger but my main is already a Spellbreaker so I don't want to play with similar skills so soon.
>>
>>127883967
it is a caster though
except instead of spamming eyes you will hop around and facehug bosses while trash dies to a single eye
it has higher potential survivability with all the shit you can dodge while shit melts from NJE
also 2/3 cooldown reduction on a 3 sec blink is absolutely retarded

I've been messing around a bit with a Saboteur build and am a bit lost on what to take as my primary offensive abilities.

Going dual wield together with Fire/Static strike, as well as using P.Burst with Elemental Awakening seems good enough but that still leaves me with a lot of points. Are Thermite Mines worth it? Was thinking either that or the Mortar, or just go ham on Grenado and max out it out.

Both are good and totally viable.
Commando gives you shitload of buffs and speed and the best debuff.
Sorcerer gives a shitload of elemental damage, 3s invuln and the best toggleable defensive buff.

Will you be a tough pistol guy or a crazy pistol alchemist?

>>127888129
I think with Elemental exchange and the spirit bonus of the tree you get more dmg out of your build.
>>
>>127887005
Mortar is a grean one pointer so you can still max grenado.
>>
>>127888129
I'd say Sorcerer but it's also harder to gear up, you're going to need a lot of +elemental damage coupled with attack speed and defensive stats while Commando has at least two of these already from the skilltree alone.

It's tempting to go full on damage but I'd suggest to pump physique first at least until level 25 or something, Act I will be a slog but you won't get killed and you'll have more choice of gear once you reach Act II. And grab a Gunslinger Talisman/Jacket/Marauder Belt as soon as possible.

Kiting in this game is so fucing painful. I made a sorcerer and while dealing shitloads of damagewith a full marauder set, animations are slow as shit and you find yourself facetanking, or trying to, any tough enemy generally.
Match that with the absence of dash, cancel aggro (or anything like that) skills and you find yourself relying on high defenses with a fucking ranged mage.

Is it complete fucking overkill if I go for bulwark AND maiven's?

I take fuck all damage, have 83% block chance and -99 recovery, but bosses take fucking ages, even if they can't even kill me.
>>
>>127903301
It's not. You'll still take a shitload of damage in Ultimate.

>You'll still take a shitload of damage in Ultimate.
>with bulwark, maiven, and shield block power ups
So I just shouldn't bother with a pyromancer?
>>
>>127903540
Noice. Cool then, onwards I go!

My damage just fucking sucks right now. Its the first character I've ever gone just physical on and I think I'm having trouble adjusting.

Blast shield is fuckawful though.

It only prevents fire and pierce damage, both of which are resisted anyway so whats the fucking point.

Unless I'm missing something?

>playing an incomplete game for 600 hours

I bought the game game as soon as it hit the steam stores and I still don't have even a fraction of what you've put in.
>>
>>127905092

The game is basically complete currently except for balancing and a few missing quests. It's slated for launch February.
>>
>>127905049
piercing damage is a bitch to resist and you can skip on fire resists and invest into DPS instead
it also refreshes faster than you can use it

Only as of, what, a month now?

>>127905640
B29 has been out for a month but really only added necrapolis and the final boss. Even before that game still had tons of content.

It isn't 2014 where the game had a level 35 cap anymore, dude.

Went through act 1 with no deaths on a dual wield pierce blademaster and was feeling pretty confident, then died 3 times in an hour on act 2

Fuck those boulder tossing guys disrupting skills

What class combo would work best with Shadow strike? I want to rush trough stuff. Also should I go dual wield or 2h?
>>
>>127907338
Normal/Vet is just the training wheels phase in these games. Everyone knows that the real game begins on the higher difficulties. Everything we've seen and done prior has been worthless.

New Legendary items are build defining

Needed the new difficulties to unlock all the devotion shrines to complete builds
>>
Tfw your hellhound is unstoppable

>>127908384
2h is pretty shitty. Dual wielding in general is always better in Grim Dawn.

>tfw faction weapon specific enchants give better gains for dual wielders and sword and shielders than 2h wielders
>they get two components
>there are no 2h specific components for compensation
>cucked forever

Crate hates you for wanting to use 2h weapons

How the fuck do you get ancient hearts late game? I need one for the river quest, been trying to farm the unique troll in Eastern Marsh, been getting nothing in, like... a lot of runs.
>>
>>127903301

Where are you getting all of your block recovery? Just from a few specific pieces of gear?
>>
>>127908834
Just go to the spooky blacksmith in Necropolis and craft it.
But yeah, I'm edfinitely not farming that shit with every character I'll make, Crate needs to increase relics blueprints and crafting materials drop rates.

>you don't hit with both weapons all the time, only around 33% of double strike

Anyone else having bad dreams about losing your HC character?

Would a Blademaster make for a good sword and board defensive build?

What class would be better? I kinda want to make something that can tank trough stuff and just hit everything with a poisoned sword. I have always loved poison in games and this one finally has made it good.
>>
>>127909436
no because I'm not going to be at the mercy of an early access game that is full of bugs
finishing softcore with 0 deaths is the same but doesn't get on your nerves
>>
>>127909278
I was not aware there was a blacksmith in necropolis or that you could craft hearts. Learn something new every day.

But yeah, drop rate is too fucking low on purple materials. Been trying to farm blood of cthons too, it's fucking awful.
>>
Is there a cutoff for getting the enemy/faction specific crafting materials? I was fighting the early ass golem in flooded cavern at level 77 when he is like level 60 and still getting ancient heart but now I need a metric fuckton of Binding Seals from the blood cult guys and they used to drop like candy but I'm 78 now and they're about 70-75 but I haven't seen one drop in like 3 resets of a dungeon when usually I'd get like 3 drops per run.

In fact you have to use either tainted brain matter or blood of chthon to craft it, which are equally tiresome to get.
