If you spam potion to survive then my friend the game is too hard for you.

Hi Eurix and welcome to the forum!

Health potions / healing will be very different in Grim Dawn. There are a couple threads where this is discussed if you search around. Potions are fairly rare / very expensive though and have a long cool-down time.

TQ was my first experience creating an ARPG skill system, so hopefully I can take some of the lessons I learned and do a little better this time. At least we expect we'll be around a lot longer after the game ships to release patches that address balance issues.


Just for the record, I didn't work on Soul Storm.

I was working with a couple of programmers and an artist to create the demo for Black Legion at the time.

Does it matter what the currency is called? Salt/Gold/Credits/SoJ/Pork Scratchings will have the same issues vis-a-vis inflation regardless of what you want to call it.

I always thought that fighting drunk is a good thing

what bugs me is that you drink so much and your bladder doesn't explode....

Thats not my point . My point was that there is no reason not too do it. Its not like your going to run out of cash.


@Medierra: Thanks! The revamp on potions is needed, and sorry for not using the search function, silly me.




Perhaps I shouldnt have mentioned the Soulstorm expansion..
