Default Grim Misadventure #56: What's New in B22

Another Grim Misadventure is upon us! Today, we would like to preview some of the quality of life features coming your way with our next update.

Build 22 is very much a fulfillment on many highly requested and beneficial features. The devs are listening!

Here are the features you can look forward to in the coming weeks:

Instanced Loot
A major update for Multiplayer fans out there, starting with B22, you will be able to enable Instanced Loot when you host a game session. Instanced Loot will treat all item drops as if you were playing in a solo session, which means less time spent figuring out what belongs to who and no more stress over players taking your hard-earned loot.




In the case that you decide to drop an item assigned to you on the ground, it becomes available to all players to pick up, which should make exchanging items with friends quick and painless.

This system does require some considerations with our What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) system though. In order to avoid weird situations where a monster might drop four exact copies of a unique item, items equipped by monsters will instead be randomly assigned to one of the players present. This preserves the proper rarity of equipment while still maintaining the ease of use provided by Instanced Loot.

For those that are not fans of Instanced Loot, don’t worry. This feature is completely optional and up to the game host on whether it is enabled.


Auto-Combine Components
Odds are good that you have all come upon a Component or two in your travels through Cairn. In fact, some of you have collected quite a few. Some would say a whole lot of them. We understand the frustration in manually combining all those Components yourself, so we have introduced a new button to the inventory UI which will automatically combine all of the Partial Components in the respective inventory bag.

Index fingers rejoice!




Expanded Storage
Additional storage has been a highly requested feature here at the forums. With B22, you will be able to purchase additional tabs in the Transfer Stash for your characters. Purchasing one of these extra tabs will unlock it for all of your characters.

In addition, the personal Item Stash now comes fully unlocked for all characters. You no longer have to purchase access to it a fraction at a time.




DPS Comparisons
In B22, you will be able to compare a weapon’s effective DPS to your currently equipped weapon directly through the tooltip. You can also hold Ctrl to have it compare the two items without the attached components.

It even accounts for set bonuses!




Bug Fixes!
Did you know that the guards in Devil’s Crossing occasionally lose their weapons? Neither did we, that is until someone noticed one of our valiant defenders firing an invisible rifle. Mind over matter I suppose.

On the order of more serious bug fixes, we pinpointed the cause of some crafting recipes generating items with no affixes, an unintended result. This fix is not retroactive however.

We have also received reports of Sphere of Protection and other shield spells creating excessively bright visuals when cast together. This has been significantly improved.

The bottom line is: keep on reporting issues as you see them. You are helping make the game the best it can be!


All this and more is coming with Build 22. We expect the release to come your way by early November. Grim Misadventures will return with more on the game’s development on 10/27/2014.

Auto-sort and auto-combine on the stash. YESSS!

Now, just add iron transfer to the transfer tab and it would be perfect

Gracias por la ampliación de las bolsas, al fin desaparecera los personajes mulas, sobre todo para componentes.

Deseando que salga, gracias.

Thanks for expanding the bags, the mules characters finally disappear, especially for components.

Wishing you leave, thank you.

Great QoL improvements. Just one question: Are the additional stash tabs of limited quantity or can you buy as many as you please?
