Default A few new screenshots to end out June

http://www.grimdawn.com/media_screenshots.php

As if you need the link...

The first shows the aftermath of a freezing blast from some stormguard armor and a strange green skully type thing in a house... wtf is that?

The other two are back to back shots of my demolition mayhem amidst a group of grobles and their dranghoul chieftain.


PS: F-you spellcheck, I can use "amidst" if I want to!

Yea, wtf is that green skully? That freezing blast looks really interesting.

The Grobles look cool, sorta like the WH40 evil little bastards, not the overly cute and sophisticated tinkering ones from Blizzard.

I'm especially a fan of the Dranghoul, it looks really awesome in all its screenshots. I hope it's tough as nails. The red plusses seems like a good way to communicate to the player what's happening (I do assume he's being healed and not being surrounded by deadly red cross-shaped fireflies?).

Nice effects, thanks for the batch of screenies!

Yeah the red pluses are healing effects. In that screen the groble shaman is using chain-heal. When there is more than one shaman, it is extremely hard to kill anything unless you stun / kill the shaman first or unleash a devastating amount of damage at once, which is always an option with demolition. Other classes tend to have to target the shamans.

looks like fun and Shamans how finally actually heal well is nice to hear.
Demolition-Class looks like it is tons of fun and throwing Grenades is awesome in any game (marksman-class in Hellgate? huge fun).

One question though: Why is the background that blue? Is it fog? looks a bit weird imo, as if you are playing minecraft on lowest vision-range.

Really cool!

In that last screenshot, what is coming your way from the bottom of the screen? That sword looks enourmous..

Really love the explosions btw, can't wait to see all these effects in a video.
Is it some sort of lightning attack in picture no.2? Or is it the shaman's healing that spreads like a chain lightning between the Grobles?

I LOVE this kind of stuff.

Reminds me of the Shamans in Diablo 2 that kept raising the dead while they were offscreen. Fun times! Especially when there were 2-3 shamans. LOL
