Default Just left Blizzard (D3/ WoW) For this... how is the community?

Hi All,

I'm a Dad, 3 kids with a full time job. Have been playing wow and D3 for last 14 and 6 years respectively. Played a bit of a few other games in the middle.

Just got into Grim Dawn. What is the community here like? I have the game via GOG. What is the equivalent of battle net social here? What's the best way to chat/ make friends?

Any help would be appreciated. Is it just about coming to these forums?

Welcome to the game and to the forum.

Community is pretty good I think, by and large. Do have the occasional flare-ups and toxic comments, but these get sorted out pretty quickly. Advice re builds/skills/etc are available if you have questions. Most everyone wants people to get the most out of playing the game.

Sadly GOG community seems pretty dead so I doubt you'll have much luck there. The game is mainly single player with some multiplayer added so not much in the way of chat/social in that respect as far as I know.

There is a discord channel

http://www.grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=43768

which has a searching players section so you could try there. But have to say that most of the game's sales come from Steam purchases so not sure how many players you'll find using the GOG version of the game.

There is not an equivalent of bnet cause there are no closed servers here. The game is focused on single player with optional multiplayer. Community can't be so great with people like me roaming free in this place. But we have phones!

I have the GoG version of the game, but I don't really play multiplayer.

I prefer to play with myself.


But welcome to the game and the forums.

@ OP:
But yeah, Grim Dawn is mostly single player (the MP aspect is very unbalanced)

I've played d3 and poe for years, and GD is way better of an experience than any of those, sure there are things that i don t like, for example the super fast leveling or the insane drop rate of legendaries but we can mod this game, just patched my game with -90% exp and nerfed the ridiculous drop rates to the ground and it starts to feel like d2, lovely.

but in d2 you have magic find gear and teleport, which makes even items with 1:10k drop chance "easy" to find
