What if you get fire resistant monsters? Any alternatives?

Yeah, almost everyone is playing the Oath now, it's just how it is when a new class drops.

As for fire res, I have a fair amount of fire resistance shredding. Some come from items, some from Guardian of Empyrion summons, and some from devotions.

GOG usually has this game with serious discounts, including the DLCs (obviously not the latest one, since that is @ full price, for now). Unfortunately, now it's not on sale :(

That's actually how i got GOG's version myself since, up until that point, i played exclusively on Steam.

I see a lot of people on the forums complain about GoG updates taking an extra day or 2, or that multiplayer support isn't great. Just an fyi to new users considering which version to get.

FG allows mp between GoG/steam version, but all older versions do not (95% of user base is steam).

Few tips, if I may...
- overcap resistances by 20~25% if at all possible. Enemies shred them too and its those moments your resistance is below 80% + incoming crits that can one shot you.
- Your OA/DA are low. DA is huge for survivability, if you can get near 2700~3000 with procs/buffs that will prevent a lot of incoming crits.
- Lacking high DA, get 'Wayward Soul'. It procs on incoming crits to save your ass and the constellation doubles as a nice OA boost.

You don't need to overcap resists by 20-25% unless you're pushing endgame content like Gladiator crucible, Nemesis, or Shattered Realm. He's so far away from that, that there's no point in bringing it up. And 2700 DA, again, you don't need that unless pushing endgame content. For normal farming he can get away with quite a bit less than that.

Wayward soul procs at "20% chance on hit", and it has for a very long time now.

With GOG Galaxy, i'm told the updates are in the same day but i can't use GOG Galaxy myself (don't know how, under Linux) and, for the install files to become available, it takes a few days longer.

I follow these steps to install GD under Linux (Ubuntu):


New patch? Need to download all the files and re-install the whole thing.

amn... I've been looking for Malediction for weeks now. Still waitin'... I need it as the LAST component for https://grimdawn.fandom.com/wiki/Dreeg's_Affliction_(relic)

The vendor in the Ancient Grove sells all recipies of lvl 75 and below (including set helms, relics, etc etc, everything), he usually has 5-10 for sale in any given instance. Also, his sales are timed, so if you buy from him, go kill the dungeon boss, then backtrack to him, you can buy some more plans.

I love this game... I hate port valbury.

I havent had a build that could run through it on veteran yet without an unfortunate and untimely death. Definitely maxing aether resist next time.
Port Valbury is brutal, I normally don't bother with it until ultimate, and even then just b/c the 3 Watchers drop some nice MI belts.

I think i can stand in those "problematic areas" a while longer:

View attachment 122977

Still attempting past shard 60 in SR but, so far, without success. This is my latest testing build: i can do OK if the bosses don't come @ me @ the same time but, because the bosses map is so small, they often do, which is what is screwing me :(

I'm grinding through SR on hardcore now, up to 50 on my King Octavius build...but holy crap the difficulty really spikes around lvl 45.

aight guys... im doing it...

Going to try a 2H ranged soldier inquisition. "DOOMGUY"

That's a Tactician. I have one using the Runebinder set, it's really fun to play. I'm hardcore, so don't laugh at the Mark of Divinity. Here it is:

Oathkeeper... So in GD's lore, other classes are expected not to keep their oaths.

Well, most classes are sort of anti-heroes really. You can also make or break promises in several quests in the game ;)

Oh, so you can break a promise while playing an Oathkeeper.

Joking aside, much of the allure of TQ was its attention to detail (remember how many uniques made references to Greek mythology and were actually emulating it?) I missed that in GD.

Speaking making or breaking promises, there's this set:
I find it amusing that it also hampers some Oathkeeper abilities.

TQ's attention to detail was absolutely fantastic. I swear half the devs must've been major mythology/classics nerds. Ancient Greek in the beginning of the opening that's accurate? Telkines and Dactyloi are from Greek mythology but tend to be rarely mentioned in pop culture works; the Dominions series is the only other game I can think of that uses them (and one of the devs there is an actual mythology/religion professor). They were also pretty good on the non-Greek stuff too. Zhu Rong's Firebow was one that stood out to me, if only because it was the only bow that boosted skills that wasn't in Rogue or Hunting. I think the flavor text on the unique items in GD kinda make up for it.

One thing I do miss in GD from TQ was the Dark Covenant skill. Hungering Void just isn't the same.

An update on Toxia. Swapped to Eye of Reckoning...and it is not bad at all! Good fun to play as well! Thanks for bringing that skill to my attention @Ahhzz :toast:

Synergy wise its surprisingly easy to add a good chunk of vitality damage in the mix at no real cost. I'm looking at Gavel of Ravenous Souls to convert fire > vitality damage to get rid of the remaining half that isn't converted to Acid on all attack skills as well. Compared to last build, the devotions are focused towards lots of life leech (16% total) at no real cost otherwise. You can see that towards the end of the video. At the cost of some retaliation constellations I also crammed in Wayward Soul, which is huge to counteract incoming crits. Apart from the biggest hitters my health bar barely moves... :D

I'm using Behemoth's Giant Blood for my "Oh crap", but I've reworked mine a little, and still tweaking a bit. I can manage most areas ok, but I keep running into some random Heroes/Bosses that are giving me headaches.....

Finally managed to clear shard 75, with my blademaster: took quite a while.

Figured out how to NOT aggro most / all the bosses in shards 65+ maps: depends on the monsters but it has a rather high success rate, i think. Doing it this way, i get two bosses @ the same time @ most, which is much more reasonable then three or more @ the same time. Doesn't work all the time, specially VS ranged bosses, or when Gravathul (SP????) is one of them.

For this to work, a rune with the teleportation effect of Nadaan's Strike is required, in order to teleport right @ the start of the boss shard to a specific place nearby: this must be done right @ the start of the boss shard and effectively stops most of the monsters from coming @ you right from the get go. Sometimes, it doesn't stop them all and up to two still come @ you, but it's much better than all of them, right?

There are two maps for shards 65+: a smaller map and a bigger map. You'll want to teleport in both of them, even the bigger one, right @ the start of the shard: do NOT delay this. You'll need to figure out the max distance you can teleport before reaching the boss shards because if you attempt to do it outside of the range of the teleport, the teleport will fail and that can lead to all monsters coming @ you @ the same time, even in the bigger map (rather rare, but it does happen).

The smaller map - teleport to near the bottom right corner of the map.
The bigger map - teleport to near the top left side of the map.

IMPORTANT: this only works when you reach the boss shard for the 1st time. It will NOT WORK if you fight and end up dying to the bosses @ least once.

Still haven't figured out this for the smaller boss map of shards 45-60, though: more often then not, all of the monsters come @ me @ the same time in this map :(

So, been playing for about a month, a few hours here and there.

Just wanted to ask; is anyone else bored with the constantly playing the same bounties over and over? I mean, I have completed a bounty, and when looking a the next bounty, it is the exact same bounty!

You only do bounties? Not enough reputation yet?

Before Shattered Realm, i used to do the Rogue Dungeons and track down the some of the more "easy to find" Nemesis. Now, mostly Shattered Realm and Nemesis: highest SH lvl i've done yet is lvl 78, so far.

Ofc, i've been playing exclusively with a lvl 100 char and i'm honored with all friendly factions as well as nemesis with the rest , so i don't need reputation.

You'll need it if you're not yet with honored / nemesis status yet. It's a grind to reach max status but, once completed, you can stop doing bounties, permanently (with that char). Highly suggest getting the mandates and warrants for the factions: helps tremendously when you're trying to lvl reputation with other chars since these items can be placed in the transfer stash for other chars to use.

Inquisitor is absolutely mental for ranged builds. Lots of shreds including a permanent -% elemental aura shredder... and Demo is always that same ol' boring Fire Strike crap. You can even shred aether and chaos, its very easy to stack specific damage types too, from different sources (Word of Pain, Runes, your gun, aura).

Tactician (soldier/inquisitor) is really strong these days for ranged builds. I have a Runebinder Tactician that is a blast to play and really wreaks havoc on the battlefield.

I have done the main game and Malmouth, have revered reputation with the Coven, Homestead, Black Legion, Outcast, honored with the Barrowholm, Devils Crossing, Malmouth, Rovers.

Currently level 69 Warlord.

Just trying to build up character. How else to build stats?

I have done the main game and Malmouth, have revered reputation with the Coven, Homestead, Black Legion, Outcast, honored with the Barrowholm, Devils Crossing, Malmouth, Rovers.

Currently level 69 Warlord.

Just trying to build up character. How else to build stats?

So just like any of these games..diablo, titan quest.etc..Don't spend much time on the first level of difficulty, the game doesn't really start until you hit Ultimate...which by then you will have max rep with every faction you want. I've 4 characters in Ultimate and my druid has finished everything except the newest expansion.

I said i'm honored with all friendly factions but i meant revered: my bad.

As for your question, don't do all bounties: some bounties give reputation while others only give iron bits. Be "picky" with the bounties you do.

As soon as available with your highest lvl char, get the mandates for the factions you want reputation and place them in the transfer stash to be used by the char you want to lvl: this will speed things up because bounties will give 50% to 100% more reputation this way. This works for both positive reputation (friendly) as well as negative reputation (enemy) factions.

True ... and not true ...
For the friendly factions, this can be true, provided the player hasn't "sped up" the lower difficulties but, for the enemy factions this is false. It took me quite a while to get nemesis status with Cronley's faction (Fabius), for example. With the beast faction (Kubacabra), i reached nemesis status before clearing Malmouth expansion.

I haven't been in GD for almost two weeks, tied up with other things and playing another game I just recently picked up.

So I finally decided to launch GD and see what kind of mayhem I can bring....

WTF is up with the shitty looking monster HUD they threw in? Damn eye sore. It's so distracting that I actually hate trying to play the game. Sure, you can scale down your HUD and the monster HUD gets smaller.....but playing across 5760x1080, that makes the skill bar so small it gets hard to easily see what skills are setup and what buffs you have on.

I actually, in the first time (out of 700 hours of playing), don't want to play this game anymore. They took a crappy looking font, slapped it into the HUD and then made the monster HUD take up 25% of your screen. The monster HUD doesn't do anything different than it did before this last update, except now it's 3x as large and 10x as fugly.

If they don't change it back or give an option to use the old HUD, I won't play the anymore. And that makes me sad because I actually really enjoy the game play and how awkwardly you can build champs to see how far you can actually get through the game using them. It was a game I could drop 30 minutes into here and there when I didn't have much time to spend on games......guess I'll have to find something less fugly looking now.

So here's hoping they fix the atrocity they unleashed.
