Default Grim Misadventure #43: A Tale of Two Smiths

Rejoice, people of Grim Dawn, for I have returned. Ok, so I was not actually gone, but this update is from me! Build 18 is cooking on high heat and we hope to have it ready for you in the coming weeks. The feature list is just teeming with awesome new things that should make your game experience that much better. Did I mention crafting is coming? Crafting is coming!

When B18 goes live, you will find that a new quest has been added to the Burrwitch Outskirts. A young blacksmith by the name of Duncan requires assistance regarding a dispute with his master, Angrim. It will be up to you to resolve the situation. More importantly, how you handle things will influence who joins you in Devil’s Crossing, and there is nothing superficial about it.

Both Angrim and Duncan are experts in their field. They are masters of forgotten forging techniques (hint: Relics!), but they have very different philosophies in bringing the hammer to the anvil. Angrim, a traditional smith with many years under his belt, prefers the tried and true techniques passed down to him from his master, and his master’s master before that. All weapons, armor and accessories he creates are forged with utmost precision and care. As such, whenever he creates these items for you, they are imbued with additional properties.

Duncan is comparably less experienced than his master, Angrim, but that does not mean he is not worthy of your attention. Perhaps it is the impetuousness of youth or his thirst for discovery, but Duncan is not quite as set in the old ways as his master. He brings to the anvil arcane forging techniques that few can claim mastery over. As such, whenever he creates weapons, armor and accessories for you, these items are imbued with special arcane properties.

Who will join you on your quest to craft the ultimate items? There are over 150 blueprints to discover during your journey and we’re only just getting started!

Check back on 04/28/2014 for our next dev update!

Thanks for the update Zantai! Looking forward to B18 and some crafting action.

Also, nice to hear it's only "weeks" away.
