Default Grim Misadventure #87: Build 29 Preview

The final Grim Misadventure of 2015 begins! And with the end of the year fast approaching, so is the impending releasing of our next major content update: Build 29. With Build 29, Grim Dawn will become content-complete. All of the shiny content we have promised will become available, and with it, access to the game’s next two difficulty modes.

But, as you know by now, we never settle for just "a whole lot of stuff" in our updates. They need to have a whole lot of stuff times TWO. Let’s run down some of the features and changes you can look forward to in the near future.

The Finale of Grim Dawn
Venture into the Necropolis and thwart the vile plans of the Cult of Ch'thon as they seek to resurrect an ancient evil within the forgotten tombs.




Enter the Bastion of Chaos
Delve into the depths of the Void and face off against some of its most cruel denizens in our second Roguelike Dungeon!




Over 500 new items
With this update, you will gain access to the level 60-75 item range, which includes our new Empowered Epic items. Also included are 248 Legendary items ranging from level 50-75!


Devotion Improvements
Build 29 will includes some balance changes to various constellations, as well as new options for existing skills (ex. you can now assign Bull Rush to Forcewave if you wish). In addition, we have resolved a technical hurdle with debuff effects, allowing us to enable Celestial Powers on offensive debuffs such as Bloody Pox, Devouring Swarm and more. In addition, Targo’s Hammer and Guardian’s Gaze can now hit the same target more than once.


The Return of High Level Faction Gear
If you’ve been hoping for high level versions of Faction Equipment, then your wish has been granted. Players who reach Revered status with a Faction will now earn access to level 70 versions of their equipment.




Bug Fixes and Tech Improvements
We are always fixing bugs, and Build 29 is no exception. Here are some of the things coming from our programmers:
  • Completed Quests are now recorded within the Quest Log.
  • PvP is now disabled within safe zones (Devil's Crossing, Homestead and the Fort Ikon NPC area).
  • Camera zoom setting is now saved per character.
  • Fixed a bug where loot was invisible in instanced loot mode for some players if they died or left the area of a loot drop.
  • Optimized and improved the quality of all enemy ragdolls (physics).
  • Fixed Weapon Damage showing (0-0) for Item skills.
  • Devotion skills will now show their max rank.


And more…
You know the drill, this is just scratching the surface, but the rest is waiting for you with the release of Build 29, later this month. We are as excited as you are for the game to be Content Complete!


What the Heck is This Thing?!



Grim Misadventures will return in 2016, on 01/11/16. Have a safe and happy holiday season!
