Default Grim Misadventure #66: Meet the Quartermaster

The time has come for another Misadventure! In case you were not paying attention, we just released a major update for Grim Dawn! Build 24 expands on the game’s content with the second chapter of Act 3, class balance changes, optimization improvements and the first stage of our Faction System update.

In Build 25, we are going to wrap up the Faction System by introducing all of its rewards (and consequences). Standing prominently at the center of this feature will be the Faction Quartermasters. These special vendors will allow you to preview all of the item rewards offered by a given faction, at all reputation tiers.

When you reach Friendly status with any faction, you will gain access to the first tier of rewards and usually a new quest. This is the perfect time to visit the Faction Quartermaster and see what you have earned, and what is still to come.

Meet the Quartermaster



Each faction has its own set of customized rewards that will appeal to a variety of different playstyles. You may find that while one faction offers you great armor for your build, another may have the weapons you seek, and still another may have an Augment that suits your playstyle.

The Faction Vendor Window



To become Revered with a faction will take dedication to their cause and the eradication of their most powerful foes. Should you prove your loyalty though, an impressive achievement, the rewards at Revered are equally impressive. Revered status gains you access to a special quest, the most powerful Augments and Epic quality accessories unique to that faction.

Legion Medal of the Void



Legion War Seal



Bounty System
One of the ways by which you will be able to gain faction reputation will be the upcoming Bounties, offered by some factions at a Bounty Table. These special missions will send you all over Cairn in order to complete tasks the faction requires assistance with. Acquiring a few items, slaying a boss, hunting down a Hero rampaging through an area are just some examples of the missions you will be offered.

Upon completing a bounty, you will have the option of taking on another. Bounties will not be limited to once per character though, so you will be able to repeatedly take advantage of these tasks to earn the favor of the faction that offered them.

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Check back on 03/16/2015 for our regular development updates!

I really like the idea of factions and the rewards seem great and stuff, but i just wish that the rep would be shared across characters somehow, since a big part of GD is the replay value of re rolling new builds, but personally I feel a bit unmotivated to do so atm because of having to regrind all the rep. Is there any word as to whether or not the faction rewards will be transferable? I would assume not, but one can hope ...

Sharing rep wouldn't make sense as a large part of it has to do with quest progression. If it was shared, people would just repeat the same quest over and over till rep is maxed. There's also the choice between Kymon's Chosen and Death's Vigil. Think about it this way: If rep caries over between difficulties, then by the end of ultimate, you'll probably max a character's rep anyway.
Faction rewards are soulbound.

Bounty System, huh? I love it when stuff that wasn't even a Kickstarter stretch goal is added to the game.

GD is shaping up nice to be one of the best aRPG's ever!
