Hey!

Just want to pop in and apologize for my earlier post.
While all the versions initially was a bit overwhelming, I, because of lack of sleep, seemed to skip the "Think for your self" step before posting.
Was pretty easy finding info I felt was missing. My bad.

Anyway, decided to go with v048 and go straight to Grimmest mode.

I was gonna make a dual wielding gun something, but spent like 1 hour looking trough all the masteries and settled on "Terror Knight" because that skill tree looks amazing =D

I have a bit of feedback from a lvl 14 Terror Knight, if you are interested.

First, I wanna say if this is by Design, it's fine. I am in no way complaining as I have already adapted to this. Just an observation.

Blood Siphon and Gore seems to be very useful, if not OP, when you don't really need it and close to useless when you do need it.
I can take on any group size so far, as long as I keep Blood Siphon up and with Gore proccing, sometimes I don't even need Blood Siphon even for big groups.
But then when I am fighting Bosses, Elites or whatever, these 2 skills become close to useless.
Blood Siphon is not very effective when only draining very few enemies and the fear Proc of Gore doesn't seem to work on Bosses and Elites.

So what I have is 2 very different power levels depending on what I am fighting. I am in no way knowledgeable about the game and its limitation but I would propose the following.

Nerf the fear of Gore, 10 meter Radius and a 1.3s fear on a 2 second recharge seems very strong with 2 points into it.

Nerf Blood Siphon, by giving it a maximum target limit and then buff the amount of leech it has on each target. That should balance out the 2 power levels a bit.

So far I am loving this mod. Great work!

Thanks. Grimarillion is translated to Japanese by me and Shirasumi jointly. And as I wrote before, we introduce Grimarillion at Jp-Wiki and distribute the translation file. 

Our wiki is very fulfilling, and if you can read Japanese you will be amazed at the amount of information.

Yes. This link is an explanation page of Grimarillion, in which the DL link of the translation file is listed. You will see the file "170420Grimarillion_048_jp.zip" in the middle of the page. If you click on that letter, the file can be downloaded instantly. This file is also updated when Grimarillion is updated.

I would like to add that I sense that Grimarillion is the way GD, for me, ought to be played. Great job, friends.

Now, with that said, I'm trying to determine how plausible some of the fights are. I decided to (foolishly?) roll a HC toon, because I find the risk more enjoyable.

However, I encountered the Warden; well, there were more than one of him (and 3 to 4 other bosses). Not only this, but when phase 2 of the fight began, even more bosses spawned!

I quickly cancelled out of the game to save my skin.

So -- is this intended to be played successfully on HC? Has anyone done so?

Thanks!

It is very much possible, at least on normal. Kath has played several chars through elite on HC even. I suggest playing SC first to get a feel of things and to understand that many of the fights can be unpredictable.

Thanks for the warm reply. I'll simply have to be amply prepared for it!
