Disclaimer: I'm a pretty causal player (I have no chars above lvl 85 yet), so take everything I say with a grain of salt.

I think that Masteries are excellently designed, both in regards to balance and thematically. Due to the latter, Occultist wins for me. The whole idea is so magnificently Victorianesquely cool, and I think it really captures the essence of Grim Dawn universe. Which doesn't mean more Chaos damage support would hurt!

Necromancer is also pretty good. I'm not interested in the pet part, but cold, vitality and aether themes in the mastery are very, very good. I don't think acid/poison was necessary, to be honest. That damage type is covered well in the Occultist, and maybe it would make more sense to sprinkle it a little over the Shaman skill tree.

For people asking for Witcher as the new mastery, how would that be different from Occultist?


And, whenever I do think about possible new masteries, I find it hard to come up with something, Crate has done an excellent job in designing them.

Soldier - goes great with everything
Demolitionist - Fire!
Nightblade - Stabby Stabby
Arcanist - Abracaeverything is dead
Inquisitor - Guns 'n Frost Traps 2018 Cairn World Tour
Necromancer - Dont like pets but the other stuff is cool
Occultist - Ehh not really in my go to list
Shaman - Also not one I've really been able to get into. Fun to level, not so much fun in the late game.

Demo Bonus:

Medierra said he wanted a slingshot mastery during one of the streams

Never thought pet builds were so popular.

I use to like demolitionist a lot. But with Forgotten gods on the way , and for some reason Inquisitor became my favorite

I need more than just an arbitrarily picked class name to like a mastery.

Nightblade’s high mobility DW gameplay is IMO most fun. Utility-wise soldier/arcanist rule. Demo’s fun but slightly underpowered (relative to other classes). Why necro won? Maybe because it perfectly filled the gap in the pre-AOM mastery selection, both thematically and in terms of gameplay.

The Witcher as a new class? It’s no occultist, more like spell breaker. Besides I think it’s copyrighted, so a no-go like they can’t make Mickey Mouse a new mastery.
