Hi, I've been lurking this subreddit for like, a long time, and I'm totally an arpg veteran with unbelievably long amounts of time spent in such games as MUD, and the pencil-and-paper version of the critically acclaimed oscar nominated version of Nox. I bought Grim Dawn for 40¢ off Steam's "Just buy this shit already," sale. So, all my expertise aside, I have a question...
I saw Boris weapon and got interested in this, but after some reading I don't know if it's worth.
I've read that it doesn't use both weapons to attack, does the bleeding stack for each weapon or is it better with one hand and a shield? I feel it's going to be weak this way
Currently at the Tyrant's Hold in Elite and my pets are not killing stuff fast enough and I die easily. I'm trying to make my own approach on specific builds, but, I really don't know what I'm doing wrong.
Am I doing something wrong? Any improvements I can make? I'm kinda desperate to know more stuff 'cause I already have 200Hours in-game and still can't even reach Ultimate or make a solid build on my own. I have like 10 different characters and more that were deleted just for the sake of trying different builds.
No hate, I'm just getting frustrated. Still a great game.
I'll appreciate any response! Thank you!
So, I know that conversion work in order of priorities, and only happens once.
However, what happens when you have an x => y conversion, and an y => x conversion, with both having the same priority?
For example, Gladiator's Distinction (100% Vit => Phys) + Damnation (15% Phys => Vit)?
Both are global conversions from gear, so, which one happens first? Or do they happen simultaneously and ignore each other?
(Latter case would mean, for example, if you had 200 Phys and 100 Vit, you'd end up with 270 Phys and 30 Vit).
I read some comments here and there that the highest dps ingame at the moment is possibly a poison(acid?) witch hunter.
Is that true and is there a meta for that build if gear is not an issue? Please send a link to it if you have.
I recently got back to Grim Dawn and dusted off my Warder which I just leveled to 100. I Found a cool build by Superfluff which I decided to try out with the gear I got. Link to my current character: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/RZRlmX02
What bugs me is that I keep dying to random damage without having a clue what I could do to prevent that. As you can see, I have capped resistances and decent HP etc. but I'm unable to for example complete any of the skeleton key dungeons (except SoT) because I run into some bosses that suddenly just kill me in seconds. Like just now I tried to do the chaos dungeon and it was going smoothly until at the very end of the Discord level a few bosses spawned and applied some DoT(s) which killed me in a few seconds despite Menhir's proccing and a health pot.
The same happens in Challenger Crucible. I try to do the 100-150 levels and most of the time I can just facetank anything but last time I tried, I got Alkamos and The Sentinel in wave 149 who killed me after a few minutes of me kiting around because I took so much damage. They both do resist reduction but I think I should have enough overcap especially for Challenger? I also tried to go beyond wave 150 but was killed after a few waves and it was clear I had no possibility to ever reach even 160.
I'm fine with having to farm some other content for better items but the problem is that I have no idea what I should improve to be able to do Challenger Crucible and the skeleton key dungeons. Can anyone give some tips?

If you zoom out it looks a little bit like a guy with a shield in his right hand and a sword (or spear...unlikely) in his left hand ready to strike (at least in my imagination :D )... hhh can't wait... <3
So I just started playing this game and I've made it to level 22 so far, but I'm starting to question my build. I didn't realize you can't change classes once you pick one, so now I'm stuck with Arcanist. I have always strongly preferred casters over melee in games like World of Warcraft, but I'm wondering if I made a mistake.
I can still choose my 2nd class, but I have no idea what to go with. Every build I see is for level 100, so I'm not sure what the next step I should go towards is. Below is what I currently have, and I'm starting to think it's total garbage:
Can anybody help guide me? This is my first time playing this type of game, but I was a big time WoW player (warlock was my favorite).
I've been playing the game for over a year now, grinding crucible and making constant treasure trove runs, but I still lack recipes I need. Can anyone help me in trade? I need recipe for the desolation relic and ulzuins gear. I have a number of legendaries I can craft, the best of which is Herald of the Apocalypse and some other armor pieces from the ancient Grove vendor. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
I apologize in advance for being here asking stuff again. I am not sure where to look, but, I really do search up in the net first before asking here. So once again, might I trouble anyone with my questions? I'll appreciate any response!
I am trying to make different builds in different approaches, I just don't want to mess it up just in case. Thank you!
UPDATE for those who answered my previous questions: My Spellbinder is now level 77 at AoM Normal and diving now into Elite. I just farmed Malmouth Resistance for the Clarity Potion, so I can use them on my other characters that I am planning. At Elite my resistances are all 80 now, except for the Stun Duration. Thank you for all the clarifications!
This is my first ever character and I really want to know if he is a lost cause. Her dps seems quite low and a few hours ago the aether of flame gave him a lot of trouble. My character struggles the most against enemies that summon pets, and I think that's because she lacks effective crowd control. I hope this subreddit can help me fix him.
Hey guys I noticed tonight that I am pretty close to passing 200 hours played and I still havent even finished elite on a single character (closest has been start of a4 twice.) Did you guys stick with one toon until you hit ulti or is it normal for a newer player to make a ton of different combos and mess around for a while before sticking with one to end game?
I don’t know, farming a particular portion on the map for hours if not days on end just so you can get GG rolls on your needed MI can get really boring when I can just go wherever and do Crucible or something.
On the other hand, maybe that’s the endgame Crate envisions. If so, they can make the cost absurdly high so as to have tangible goals to hunt for. Heck, make rerolling an option and random like D3 such that you can reroll just one affix so you still have to hunt for the other affix normally.
They already planned set item rerolls for Forgotten Gods and those are purples so perhaps some attention can be given greens. I’ve played hundreds of hours and not once have seen a Stonehide X of Kings or Heartpiercing Y of Voracity or even a Dread Lord’s Z of the Drangoul.
People have argued that this will make it super easy to max out heroes but remember:
1) The cost and procedure can be made reasonable as discussed above and
2) It’s a single-player game and people can just pimp out a new build for more content.
edit: LMAO, got this after around a total of 12 hours from this post
I know this question has been asked a lot of times now. Trust me, I've searched around the net for the answer, but, it usually points down to different opinions where it is like a few months or last year ago. So with the new patches and stuff, what will be your answer?
I'll appreciate any response! Thank you!
I'm pretty new this game and I picked Infiltrator as my first character after searched tons of build guides at forum.
DW melee, RoH caster, Ignafar thing, etc. All looks fun to me.
But I'm not sure how to level it and farm for gears that I need.
At this moment, my level is 28 and using RoH and Word of pain + some buffs.
I think I can beat normal with this setup, but I heard WOP's dps is gonna fall in elite.
So I want to know which skill/devotion/gear would be the best choice to get Ulti and start to farm.
Someone said Shadow strike+ABB with dual longsword is good for leveling but not sure if it's able to farm in Ultimate w/o gears.
Should I just use RoH alone and run around til it's triggered? Or should I mix something with it? What is the best devotions? Is there any trick or tips?
Please let me know!
Just wanted to share :)
Dinged in Bastion of Chaos as I was farming for Shar'Zul's Worldeater.
Here's my build, still needs some gear uppgrades, but it's starting to come together.
Edit: The jewelry dropped when I was playing around with the Grimarillion modpack on my Spellbreaker prior to AoM's release. I had just finished normal and was somewhere between lvl 50 and 75.
Im new to this game and so far im loving it. My main problem with it is that i cannot find things that i need because my inventory is just full of shit, Especially when it comes to finding the components that it want. Coming from PoE im so used to being able to search for something specific and having it highlighted but here it feels so messy and i spend so much time checking every item in my inventory to find what i need. This also applies to the devotion tree, im not used to it so i have no idea what i am looking for and i get completely lost. Is there anyway i can search for stuff ingame or maybe in some sort of 3rd party program that wont get me banned ?
Before Malmouth I was working on a Primal Strike Warder and really enjoying it, however the character's power level fell off dramatically after the expansion and I shelved the character to play other stuff. Now I want to come back to a melee lightning build and I am looking for the best build to fill the screen with zaps. I want lightning everywhere, around me, on the bad guys, up in yo' house, etc.
Now I don't have time to try out every build so I was hoping to get some help/advice from you all here. Specifically I don't play too much end game so the leveling process is more important to me, which build do you feel is best to get that full screen of lightning while mopping up the battlefield?
I just have a few questions about building your toon. Would anyone be so kind to help me out? Thanks!
I will really appreciate any response! Thank you very much!
