Default (April Fools!) Grim Dawn V4.1.1.7 Preview

In case you missed our very exciting 04/01/17 patch notes, you can see them below!



[Major New Features]
  • New dialog options have been added for all major bosses allowing you to talk about their troubled pasts, explore the traumatic events and feelings that led them to become bosses, potentially leading to a non-violent resolution.
  • The bridge leading south out of Devil's Crossing can now be restored, granting you access to a mysterious mirror image of the original Grim Dawn world where all enemies have grown sinister goatees.
  • Upon character creation, you can now select whether your character has been possessed by an Aetherial or if it was really all just a bad dream.

  • Waves 151-500 have been added, unlocked by defeating the Lokarr in an intense dialogue exchange.
  • Tributes can now be spent to purchase additional character slots.
  • Fixed a bug where Wave 150 did not consistently spawn 5 Iron Maidens.

[Mod Tools]
  • Modding Tools can now support Modding Tools Mods, so you can modify the tools to modify the game however you like, offering unparalleled customization.

  • Updated all skill fx with extra lens flares.
  • Fixed an issue where some armor had colors other than grim grey, grim brown or grim black.
  • To fit the dark theme of Grim Dawn better, it now rains perpetually in the middle of the night in all parts of the game, including caves.

  • Increased monster ragdolling by 1000%

  • Gazerman now gazes at you at all times as you play, but always just off camera.
  • Nemesis monsters will now pursue your character into the main menu.
  • The Avatar of Mogdrogen now summons Clones of John Bourbon.
  • Constitution now actively drains while the character moves, attacks or speaks to NPCs. If it reaches zero, the character starves to death.
  • Untouched meals now have a random change to belong to one of the NPC factions and eating it will reduce your standing with that faction.
  • Increased consequences from Choice and Consequence quests by 22.3%.
  • Starting a character in Hardcore Mode now requires the player to defeat their previous Hardcore characters. There can only be one...
  • Cronley's outlaws now taunt the player 50% more frequently. Hey you!
  • Skeleton Keys can now open any door so long as the key fits inside the lock.

  • Two Handed Weapons can now use up to 3 Components.
  • Components can no longer be applied to weapons.
  • Ancient Hearts, Blood of Ch'thon and Tainted Brain Matter can no longer drop and are instead crafted from Manticore Eyes.
  • Chipped Claws are now extra chipped and require 10 partial Components to assemble.
  • Legendary Items have been rebalanced to provide more Spirit and Cunning rather than the comparably uninteresting attributes such as Offensive Ability, Resist Reduction and Health.
  • Monster Infrequents seem to be dropping a little too often. Rather than reducing their drop rates we have simply renamed them to Monster Frequents.
  • Mythical Relics have been removed from the game in order to maintain their mythical status.

[Class & Skills]
  • Due to significant class changes, players must now go through a 6 hour training session with Sahdina the Spirit Guide before they can select their first skill point.

  • Celestial Power activation chance now scales with the monetary donations you make to the respective celestial being.
  • Devotion Shrines are now gluten free.

  • Cadence % Weapon Damage has been increased to 10000%, but now requires 100 charges to trigger.
  • Increased the force applied by Forcewave.
  • Counter Strike now toggles an FPS mode. You must have a ranged weapon equipped.
  • Scars of Battle now increases ruggedness by 50%.

  • Due to balance concerns, the Demolitionist Mastery has been removed. Any characters currently using the Demolitionist Mastery will be compensated 1000000 iron bits for the loss of skills.

  • Hellhounds now scale with the player's feelings.
  • Summon Familiar now destroys walls with its basic attack.
  • Doombolt now informs your target of the exact moment they will die.
  • Possession now disables control of your character until it expires.

  • Phantasmal Blades now pass through ghosts.
  • Pneumatic Breath must now be recast regularly to prevent suffocation.
  • Shadow Strike cooldown has been removed, but the ability now only functions when standing in a shadow.
  • Anatomy of Murder now requires a medical degree.

  • Aether Ray now requires 5 episodes to charge up.
  • Devastation now requires a staff to cast.
  • Olexra's Flash Freeze now deals bonus damage to nearby plants.
  • Reckless Power now has a 25% chance to explode your character instantly.

  • Increased Devouring Swarm hunger by 25%.
  • Torrent now also cascades to the primary target, the player and any nearby metal objects.
  • Wind Devil can now only be cast in low air pressure environments.
  • Mogdrogen's Pact now requires Mogdrogen's permission to activate.

I wouldn't put it past the OP if there was at least one change in there that they really plan to implement.

I never knew devotion shrines were edible, or maybe they were just driving away health freaks and forcing them to play the game without devotions.
