Physique fags BTFO 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)

It is, all the people who wasted all their points on cunning think they did wise because OA devotions got a nerf. They somehow didn't read that all enemies got their HP, OA and DA nerfed as well.

I bet they also think that DW tree from Nightblade was nerfed and worse than before. thanks to enemy nefs, it id just like it was before on b29

I guess spending 87 attribute points for 270 OA was worth the trade off of not being able to wear anything.

i still can wear everything on my blademaster without a single point in physique though
>>

Unless you have Military Conditioning maxed and magically can pull 500 Physique out of gear/Devotion, this is objectively false.

Anyone have Praetorian Faceguard/Shoulderguards? I'm up to my eyeballs in lightning epics but I cannot find anything good for my Witchblade. I still have Shoulderguards of Perdition on and I'm level 53.

Thanks to the soldier class, and using a shit load of gear that you found on other characters. Try doing that on completely self found or with a different class combination. It's basically gimping yourself for a mostly useless stat.
There was quite a few times that I wouldn't have survived on HC if I hadn't spent most of my point on physique.

>>128577717
I have a spare set. Post a game and I'll trade you.

>>128577829

what the fuck does mean? what does this damage apply to? every single damaging ability you have? does the value scale based on the speed of the attack or quantity of projectiles?

Various weapons with stats that focus on physical damage, believe it or not, have physique requirements.
>>
>>128578481
You autoattacks and skills with %weapon damage.
>>
>>128578271
>Thanks to the soldier class

no shit? what else am i supposed to use, occultist?

>using a shit load of gear that you found on other characters

i run it self-found since lvl 26, and never had any problems with dying or equipping better armor

just pick a random +60 physique from the ground, grab few +physique materia and make everything self-sustainable

>>128578481
flat damage on buffs applies to weapon attacks
flat damage on skills applies only to those skills

are you retarded to not understand this?
>>
>>128578481
Probably that all spells/attacks deal additional aether damage. But I could be wrong. I barely understand Grim Dawn sometimes.
>>
>>128578713
Forgot to quote
>what does this damage apply to?
>>
>>128578713
so an ability like that would be much more effective on pblades than anything else, since it does a minor amount of %wpn dmg but a lot of projectiles, which will each receive that flat benefit?
>>
>>128578583
You could have just went to that house near the Burrwitch Village, gotten the cultist orders and made the deal with Direni. You get the key, and it's a much better outcome for later in the game if you spare him.
>>
>>128579036

How is it a better outcome?
>>
>>128579132
he will be a killable mob easy farming for reputation for prison
>>
>>128578939
no, the damage is applied to weapon, which then is affected by %weapon damage
>>
>>128579132

he joins up with cronley and he turns into another boss you can fight for enemy reputation while doing cronley runs.
>>
>>128579132
he's a boss in cronley's hideout.
>>
>>128579232

welp, too bad he's dead
>>
>>128579297
meh as long you not kill the dynamit trader you're fine
>>
>>128578939
Yeah it will increase PB's damage, but I don't think if it's the most suited ability to make use of bonus flat damage.

I'd personally go for stuff like Cadence or Fire Strike.
>>
>>128579389
>dynamite price skyrocketed

So, help me out here. What's the best way to do shaman/soldier 2hand? Am I using savagery? Thunderous strike? Am I stuck with memeborn talisman? What am I using for aoe?

I figure blitz is good to engage and also does a shitton of damage to bosses, feral hunger makes you basically immortal, obviously, stack passive so/buffs, where do I go from there?
>>
>>128579389
there's a dynamite trader? where's he at?
>>
>>128579838
blitz is the best aoe you can get, its actually bugged and hits in 360
>>
>>128579545
Used to be able to use them for treasure troves to make good profit. Now, dynamite will cost more than you'll probably get out of the chest.

Good job, crate.
>>
>>128579893
you met him in act 2 he stabed someone, if you spare him he will show up in homestead as trader
>>
>>128579893
Homestead, you get him if you chose not to the merchant as requested by the dying guy, near the Arkovian Foothiles.

There is also the secret merchant near the blood grove rift.
>>
>>128580004
I assume it'll get unbugged at some point, though.

Am I really just gonna be autoattacking single targets at a time?
>>
>>128580091
if you kill him instead, you get a shitty ring +to all attributes that gets outdated in few levels
>>
>>128580012
Dynamite costs 3,700~, chest gives 6k-12k~.
On multiplayer, it can pass 20k, depending on the number of players.

>>128580964
i'm trying to figure out how much of each resistance i need in order to not get fucked in each act, pls no bully
>>
>>128581248
So, basically, I'm using troll rage, stacking buffs and passives, and occasionally throwing out a blitz here and there? No savagery, no thunderous strike, no fun allowed?
>>
>>128581403
doesnt he have a 360 spread attack? those tend to hit quite badly if he starts casting them while youre far away, and you blitz in or something.
>>
Does anyone have the Empowered Faceguard and Empowered Chestguard of Perdition they'd be willing to trade?

Savagery and Thunderous Strike are good. I don't see why they get a lot of hate. Only thing about Thunderous Strike is that you can't proc WPS skills like Feral Hunger or Zolhan's Technique, but the skill itself more than makes up for that.

>>128581403
Act 1 (Ultimate) 40 poison resist min, 33ish pierce resist min, 60+ cold resist min.
Act 2 (Ultimate) 60+ bleed resist min, ~40 pierce resist, physical resist not necessary but helps a lot, same with Aether resist.
Act 3 (Ultimate) ~50 Pierce Resist, 60+ elemental resists, 30+ chaos resist, 20 aether resist min
Act 4 (Ultimate) capped Elemental resist, 60+ chaos resist

At least in my opinion.
>>
>>128581926
>>128581403

Addendum: Also Vitality resist at 60+ for Act 3, 4. More important in Act 4.
>>
>>128581926
But feral hunger gives you that autoheal. Seems way too good to give up.
>>
>>128582174
Its nonconsistent heal though. Whereas you could get permanent attack damage converted to health through gearing all the same.
>>
>fiendish mantle absorbs 5000 damage every 40 seconds

so how is ultimate difficulty now? my pet build with like 700% pet damage and 120% pet speed cleared fairly slowly before
>>
>>128582271
True, but with feral hunger, you could have both. Seems like late game, that'd be really useful.
>>
Is anyone else getting insane healing in blade barrier? It only gives +150 health regen but I'm watching it heal me to full in ~2000 bursts every time I use it.

It's basically the same. Enemy HP went down so things to drop more quickly, but the OA/DA rebalance did fuckall.

its a dot thats ticking down as you autoattack with savagery. Its just another source of dps added on top of your autoattack.

Unless forcewave dot can be stacked on itself I dont see why you would want to replace your auto-attack with it because it does lousy initial damage.

For devotions pick up Wraith, Widow (Arcane bomb can be put on Marauder's Salvo if you've got the belt) and Imp (aetherfire on FS). Get whatever the fuck else you want. Personally I picked up Lion, Crane and Hawk.

>>128594787
Yes, idk why people use dps, only thing that matters is how hard a single hit is, based on how often you crit, cast speed and attack speed are very situational subjective stats

Whats a good test of a build using the premade blank level 75 character? I died to cronley's thugs in ultimate pretty quickly but I'm only using vendor shit and have negative resists.

Also how much offensive ability is enough?
>>
>>128595030
>cast speed and attack speed are very situational subjective stats

Yes, especially if you're ranged and you have to kite, for some mobs (heroes) you can literally only get 1 hit per kite, for others you can get 5 or sometimes even more for slow mobs.

Don't know I'm playing the game the right way and im lvl 57 so not that far yet. Started a new toon who is lvl 53, but he's having issues clearing content specifically bosses purely due to speed. I still clear fine without dying but my oa is Makin fights take 3x as long

but cant it just simulate equipping the weapon and displaying the resulting damage? why are there two different ways the game counts dps?

>>128595892
It's because it can't take into account conversions against your bonuses I believe. But again, dps is a bad Stat for this game. Very rarely are you standing still attacking as fast as possible anyways

I have a two handed Shaman and I'm running a similar auto attack + Feral Strike to stay alive.
I've found Wendingo Totem to be an effective heal skill. I believe the patch notes mentioned a buff this build too. It's got a bit of a small AoE though, not much room to maneuver in melee.
If you want damage, Wind Devils. You can use them to lower resists and zap mutherfuckers with lightning bolts.

I'm confused. So when a weapon says %Damage like this says % Poison Damage, does that mean each attack does 42% poison damage or does it mean that the poison damage I do is increase by 42%?

Also does shit like witchfire stack with the attack abilities in the Soldier tree like candescence?
>>
>>128611491
AFAIK
flat damage impacts weapon damage
so anything that isn't "% of weapon damage" is kill
percentage bonuses impact anything that is impacted by player damage bonuses like DEE
>>
>>128611491
poison damage you deal is % bonus. This is in spells or auto attacks.

IE, if you do 1-5 poison damage on attack, and your spell does 1-10, you're increasing both by 42%.

Flat value bonuses apply to autos only, but as a result, also apply to spells that do % weapon damage. IE, if your soleals adds 10 chaos damage to your attack, you do 10 more chaos per auto, and if your spell does 25% weapon damage, 2.5 will be chaos damage.

Hope it helps

Forget about pets if you want to have fun. Plus it's hard to make hybrids work, specially for a first character.

Occultist is a pretty boring mastery by itself, but some class combos are somewhat entertaining.

Trauma is worthless if you are going for a Chaos build. Gottagofast is nice, but it's more of a luxury.

not to mention they removed all the elemental stuff from damage, like cold didn't slow you, etc. which is shit.

Are my friends dumb for not picking a 2nd class by level 20? I keep telling them it offers nothing but benefits to go ahead and pick something at least for masteries but they're non-committal at best.

I don't touch a 2nd mastery until my mid 40's to early 50's. Otherwise you'll be spreading yourself thin. It may seem more appealing to have access to more skills, but it's better to just focus on one mastery at a time,

Possession is far better as an exclusive than Oleron now for Witchblade anyway, even as it was before it was far more useful because of the massive damage mitigation on it. I can't see why anyone would jump 18 points in the soldier tree then dump 12 into Oleron for that.

guys, I need to clear some shit up
first of all, does burn/frostbite/electrocution benefit from +% elemental damage?
what's the order of conversion for physical to elemental and elemental to chaos for blood orb of ch'thon?
if internal trauma is physical and elemental DoT is elemental (duh), is IT affected by conversion of physical damage into some other damage type?
and lastly, what happens if you convert more than 100% of physical damage? like when you have a piercing weapon with high innate conversion and use some skills/materia to boost the total over 100%
>>

>>
>>128645105
why would they make it impossible to scale dots? You telling me that if I want to deal and DoT, I have to scale that spells main dmg type separately its DoT type?

>>128645220

in TQ poison was the only DoT worth shit, because it didnt have a flat counterpart

elemental DoTs and bleeding were more of a flavor thing put in hundreds on certain weapons, but now you get a tiny bit but on everything, so dont even bother with them unless you go balls deep

im making a frostburn character right now and it starts to take off with 300 DoT on level 24 but i dont see it go that well
>>
>>128644858
Yes because splosions.
>>
>>128645615
So why even put them in? It adds needless complexity to the game and fucks with gearing because instead of getting something useful now I have lol frostburn on this piece of shit gear..

Why wouldn't they just add that damage into the spell as flat dmg if they werent going to do anything worthwhile with the DoTs
>>
>>128645589
if you have 40%, 30%, 10%, 10% and 50% it would convert them to ~28%, ~22%, ~7% ~7% and ~36%

>>128645723
you dont have to use them, and most gear has both +%flat and +%DoT damage

finding a flat DoT damage source, now that can be hard
>>
>>128645220
DoTs will receive an overhaul after the game's release.

>>128645615
Poison was shit in TQ and so was most of the Rogue mastery.
>>
>>128645723
It would be better they just did it so damage types have a chance to impart a percentage of that damage as a DoT. Have generic +%DoT just like +%retaliation and +DoT chance gear.

Unfortunately GD is rather obtuse when it comes to numbers shit. Hell their own character sheet in game can't even factor everything in to properly calculate damage.
>>
>>128644352
What would you recommend as an off?
>>
>>128646521
It depends on which skills and types of damage you're focusing on.

Caster Demo is really energy hungry so I'd consider going for fire damage and Arcanist as a secondary mastery.

You can also pick Soldier for extra tankiness and physical damage.

Or even Occultist for CoF and the Raven's heal and buffs.

There are a lot of possibilties.

>>128649703
>and want crossbow instead of a gun badly, but i swear they're like rarest type of items

I'll swap you your luck for mine. I probably get more crossbows and crossbow repeats than any other type of weapon. It seems like Crate really, really wants me to try them. They can fuck right off tho. I'd rather a bow than a crossbow.
>>
>>128649938
Doesn't make sense, brah, otherwise the same problem would apply to casters as well, and it doesn't. To be honest there isn't a distinction of melee / ranged / caster in Grim Dawn. Characters who use guns are literally wizards, they just use their guns to shoot magic instead of wands.

tl;dr who needs CC when you can just chain lightning everything to death from a distance before they even get to you.

well there's an increased chance for legos to drop on ultimate. Of course RNG can still fuck you over and there is a chance to get repeats. I can't understand why Crate made the best end game items sets, though. That will completely fuck your brain since trading in this game is so shitty.

Question: Is there something wrong with using Shields on Soldier?
I feel like /gdg/ is really critical of it, and I'm not sure if they're being honest and that Shields are bad or if they're being facetious and saying Shields are so good, it's babby mode.
>>
>>128652690
>>Question: Is there something wrong with using Shields on Soldier?
No clue, I just have it with lego shield drops left and right.
Imo, shield/pistol is garbage and everything else is just a damage drop, too, if you want to play tank, you can do that in MP though

There's a big lack of good shield skills in this game, and untransmuted Forcewave is meh.

soldier is literally the only viable shield class and people already hate soldiers for being absolutely broken with their DPS x tankiness ratio

Okay I've done some research and now I'm like 90% sure it's a global multiplier since it seems to work the same way as %resist reduction, except the maluses don't stack together.

AOE vitality damage over time via sigil of consumption, bloody pox and wendigo totem.
Okay I see what you're saying, vitality-over-time as it's own damage seems really redundant now. Maybe some flat vitality damage nukes or something besides DOOM BOLT which is 50% vitality only, if that. completely possible there's other actives I don't know about.

fair enough, why add vitality-over-time as a thing then? Unless it's just flat vitality damage that is applied over time in some kind of weird wonky thing.

Dream was mostly OP because you could make a Haruspex and become literally unkillable.

Between hunting and dream and the right gear,myou could fairly easily get 100% chance to avoid projectiles and enough DA to not get hit by anything in the game. There were like 3 attacks in the entire game that weren't considered melee or a projectile, so those were basically the only things that could hit you.

Plus, spearspex did very good damage as well. Dream basically just comboed with everything else way too well.

What a load of goat shit - why did I even pick soldier with Demo.
That guy is already dealing nearly as much damage with just those items with the same points spent, but in arcanist instead of soldier.
Its not like Soldier offers anything superior over arcanist ...

Man I mad.

is it possible that steam cloud or the grim dawn's cloud feature somehow got turned on/off? if so it may have moved the character files, but not the stash files?
>>
>>128684937
i turned it off a few days before B30 got released because people were saying it fixed some FPS issues, which it did for me, so i kept it that way.

im just upset that i was happy for once, feeling like everything worked out when shit hit the fan.
but then i ran into a shrine that needed Purified salt and i was all "shit man, i got some of those in my stash brb, shrine" opened my stash to find i had items in my player stash but not my Shared stash, which i kept all my components in, and thats when my heart sank and i just lost all will.
>>
>>128685497
if you turned it off, the older files may still be in the old location. it's worth a look, you can always fetch the old transfer stash file and copy it to the new location. you could at least get most of our transfer stash stuff back.
>>
>>128686398
i'll see what i can do, hope this works anon.

yep, before savagery charges. its 10k with charges.

Yeah, physical damage is affected by armour, piercing is affected by piercing resistance.
>>
>>128692535
Pierce damage is a %parth of physical. Armor reduces physical damage but not pierce damage which is reduced by resistances.

It's fucking gay and feels so samey when you stack OA for every kind of character, except a pet conjuror, in which case you stack pet OA.

>>128694487
OA = Offensive Ability is the stat that determines your hit and crit chance. It is the primary damage attribute for everyone as being able to hit takes precadence over all the other damage stats . DA is the defensive version of that.
>>
>>128695015
Lol. It took us years convince them to make components stack, and the only reason they did it is because the main designer finally played the game for himself and saw how shitty it was. Good luck getting those people to listen to you, especially when you'll be dogpiled by the "it's their game, Crate knows best what they are doing!!" idiots.
>>
>>128695904
lol making components stack was one the worst latest ideas
instead of leaving one of the better aspects of random items (in this case completion bonuses) they just fuck it all up and make yet another shit layer of a build that everyone does the exact same fucking way (like OA right now)
maybe allow players to pick what prefix/affix they want in crafting, huh? remove rng fro this fucking game completely? or just hook up GD defiler to character menu so you can edit your items as you wish? fucking shit some people shouldnt be allowed to play games

You can't refute.

>lol making components stack was one the worst latest ideas
Completely disagree. Feels so much more polished now when they don't take up the space in all of your bags, and you don't have to spend a minute looking over their bonuses before you choose which one to craft with. Not to mention the nine times of ten that you complete a component and get a shitty bonus.

What's the best class to go with occultist?
I'm thinking shaman for the extra pet.

>>128697634
>>128697957

also, i wouldnt mind if they added more components for diversion, rather than just have me put exact same ones in all items except for weapon in all builds

shammy and occulist work well in many ways tho

Could someone explain to me what makes soldier and arcanist so good? Not used to these kinds of games. Just lost my first character on hardcore and now I just want one character to play trough this once. A cookie cutter build.
>>
>>128699176
It's mostly they have passives up the ass that are good for literally every build. +HP, +physique, +OA, +spirit. Soldier has some nice abilities like squad tactics and war cry, arcanist has maiven's, Iskandra's and flash freeze.

Basically they make for good secondary classes for pretty much everything.
>>
What is the most niche build you can imagine that could be actually viable, other than stacking DoT duration over 10 seconds for that full kiting potential?
>>
>>128699582
What about Arcanist + Soldier?

:^)
>>
>>128699582
and as if often goes with "secondary classes", if you combine them together you get the most OP build currently
>>
>>128698162
They said that removing the random component bonuses will help them make more new components that feel unique, so it's coming, eventually.
>>
Anyone have a Guardsman Helm (level 22 set item) they mayhaps not need? I have random Epics as well as components to trade for it

>>128700656
Pretty much, you can either go super tanky with shield, M's bulwark, and maiven's or go for more damage with O's Rage and a 2h.

>>128701157
Wouldn't mind remaking a character, specifically melee, doubly-so with a shield. Haven't done much melee. Went back to my AAR and didn't really like it.

How hard would it be for me to begin playing this game on Hardcore? I really loved playing hardcore runs in D2/TL ect, but I'm curious how easy it is to get up and running with a new character in this game comparatively.

I'm rolling one in multi right now and it works pretty well. Low level, but I'm doing literally 10x more damage than my 2h soldier buddy while being more survivable too using self founds.

i never run hardcore, instead just stop playing a character if it dies once

mind the "if", though, i didnt die since b26 or 27

>>128705637

the only things I've died to so far is standing in poison, it's not like PoE where even in normal you have to learn about all the minibosses that can kick your ass if you don't know going in what element to have resists for

dual wield increases your damage by flat 50% the moment you equip two weapons, so thats something

not to mention double the +% bonuses
>>
>>128704850
They should just separate crit and OA entirely. They obviously can't balance hit and crit chance with it being one stat. If they separated them, they could balance crit without fucking everyone else.
