Build 30 is an update that was released on January 13, 2016.[1] It was the last pre-release build of Grim Dawn and included changes to all kind of areas, from performance and environments to class balance and itemization.

v0.3.8.0 (b31) changes[]

Major new features[]

  • Voiceovers have been added for all major quest NPC dialogue.
  • A mighty earthquake has erupted in the land of Old Arkovia. Mountains collapsed into the world's crust; new rivers formed; and ancient ruins were revealed. Players who previously explored this region may need to rediscover the Twin Falls riftgate.
  • Achievements are now unlocked.
  • An animated cinematic now introduces new characters to the world and story of Grim Dawn.
  • New tutorial tip system. The old tutorial window has been removed and is now part of the Codex window (quest log/etc).

Art[]

Animation[]

  • New animation for the Arcanist skill Devastation.
  • New default attack animation for two-handed weapons.
  • Fixed a bug where Chthonian Harbingers would hang in space upon triggering the death animation. They now fall to the ground and die properly.
  • A bug was fixed with the Dreadguard's special jump attack, where they would travel forward in world-space and slide back to their origin point after the attack triggered.
  • A bug was fixed with the Dreadguard's special underhand cleave attack, where they would travel forward in world-space and slide back to their origin point after the attack triggered. The animation was also shortened by 10 frames.
  • A bug was fixed with the Dreadguard's special double-cleave attack, where they would travel forward in world-space and slide back to their origin point after the attack triggered.
  • Fixed a bug where Cronley Brute's weapons would disappear when walking.
  • Reworked the Bone Golem's self-buff and summoning animations to happen much faster.

Tech[]

  • Optimized pathfinding system. This change should result in a performance increase during large battles.
  • Fixed a rare crash when attempting to load some database resources.
  • Fixed an issue where broken loot orbs could appear to clients in multiplayer games.
  • Fixed an issue where items that would normally be automatically collected could not be picked up by multiplayer clients.
  • Fixed an issue where loot would appear floating in mid-air in some situations during multiplayer games.
  • Fixed an issue where clients in multiplayer games would not see spawn animations for pet and ambush spawns.
  • Fixed the dismantling UI not properly accounting for components in the dismantle cost.
  • Loot can no longer fall off cliffs and other high places.
  • Loading tips have been added to the loading screen.
  • Added tooltips to the options menu.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused a corruption in the player stash resulting in characters being unable to load.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur during or after UI scaling was adjusted.
  • Fixed a bug where tooltips for items in the world could become stuck on screen when opening UI windows.
  • Fixed a bug where mind-controlled enemies would not give experience in multiplayer games.
  • Reduced CPU performance impact of having many enemy corpses on screen.
  • Hovering over equipment slots on the paper doll will now highlight applicable components for that item.
  • Inventory auto sort now uses localized display names.
  • Pet resists from pet bonuses are now tabulated on the character sheet.
  • Weapon damage on skill tooltips is now split into main hand/off-hand.
  • Item stack window can now be closed with the Enter key.
  • On enemy death auto-cast skills can now trigger off of duration damage.
  • Refresh cooldown skills (e. g. Aldanar's Vanity) will now work with item skills as well.
  • Total armor rating now displays normalized armor rating that takes into account the chance to hit each armor area.
  • Fixed celestial powers attached to pets not using the appropriate level in some instances.
  • Weapon comparisons now take into account passive skills that would be active/not active based on weapon types.
  • Fixed a bug with low health and low energy autocasts triggering when they shouldn't.
  • Debuff skills now calculate chance to have a critical attack each update instead of once per application.
  • Fixed same source damage being counted twice for dual-wield skills in display calculations.
  • Modified inventory auto-sort to be more intuitive.
  • Fixed monsters that can change hostility with the player having proper collision detection.

Game[]

  • "Move To" no longer targets breakable objects.
  • Pets can now be ordered to attack breakable objects.
  • Constitution activation time reduced, fast regen rate increased, vital essence drop rate increased and % constitution restored by vital essence reduced.
  • Health potion cooldown increased from 10 s to 12 s.
  • Potions/iron dropped in multiplayer are no longer automatically picked up by the player that dropped them.
  • Most secret areas now have significantly improved loot the first time you discover them on a character, per difficulty.
  • Reduced the cap on the Loghorrean's summons and increased the cooldown of its Tentacles summon.
  • Slightly increased the minimum range for the Loghorrean's Chaos Barrage (he can still cast it in melee if you are approaching him as he begins the cast, but you are less likely to deal with this ability if you are trying to stay on him in melee). Also slightly increased the cooldown.
  • Removed the Ranged Fumble applied by Shar'Zul's Fire Winds, reduced its potency on Loghorrean's Void Rifts.
  • Avatar of Mogdrogen: reduced % Damage Absorption and damage bonus at low health, slightly reduced his damage, Offensive Ability, Defensive Ability and Health Regeneration scaling with level. Increased the cooldown on his summons.
  • Fabius: reduced the % heal from his Pneumatic Burst and added a small flat heal to it to compensate at lower levels. This heal was scaling too extremely on Ultimate difficulty, making the encounter too drawn out. In addition, the Attack Speed bonus from Pneumatic Burst has been reduced by 10%.
  • Nemesis: various Nemesis boss self-buff effects are no longer susceptible to Dispel (e. g. Nullification).
  • Nemesis: removed some of the more obscure spawn locations for the Aetherial and Chthonian Nemeses.
  • Fixed a rare bug that could cause the Aetherial, Chthonian or Cronley's Gang Nemeses not to spawn during a session.
  • Changed multiplayer experience gains to only average party-member player levels of those members near the action.
  • In multiplayer, low-level players can now gain XP when killing level-appropriate monsters (only when no very high-level players are nearby).
  • The Loxmere Nightmage now has a chance to spawn in a fixed location that can be avoided by players who do not wish to contend with the nightmarish possessed, rather than randomly in unavoidable locations. However, for those that do brave a conflict with the Nightmage, he now has a chance to drop a monster infrequent unique to him.
  • Reduced the burst potential and high-level scaling on the Loxmere Nightmage. In addition, this boss is now less likely to open up with a Shadow Strike.
  • The Outcast now has a chance to drop a Legendary version of her unique hood at level 80+, and an increased chance to drop the Epic version with each tier of her Hostile status.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Kymon's Chosen and Order of Death's Vigil allies from spawning in the Necropolis to support you if your status with them was above 5000 and you completed the quest The Necropolis quest
  • Reduced % Current Life resistance on heroes and bosses.
  • Threat generation has been updated: Debuff effects and Damage over Time now only generate threat on their initial application. Rapidly attacking a target now generates reduced threat. Reduced the amount of threat transferred from pets to the summoner. Increased the cooldown at which certain mobs and bosses will attempt to ignore pets.
  • The next chapter of the story revolving around the blade Stormheart and its owner awaits...
  • The Steps of Torment exit monolith is now only active after you open the main loot chest.
  • Target dummies have been added to Devil's Crossing, Homestead, and Fort Ikon.
  • Transparency settings have been adjusted to improve navigating the barns and shacks in Act 2.
  • Bounties that asked for trivial materials (e. g. Scrap) have been removed from the rotation.

Itemization[]

  • Max sell value of items to vendors is now increased on Elite and Ultimate difficulty.
  • Already-known blueprints now have a greatly reduced chance of dropping. In addition, low-level equipment blueprints no longer drop above level 50.
  • Increased Epic and Legendary drop rates on Elite and Ultimate difficulty by about 15% and 25% respectively. Nemesis chests were not adjusted in this buff as they are already competitive.
  • Reduced rate of single-affix items by ~30% and increased the rate of double-affix items by ~50% at level 55+ from all sources.
  • Rare-quality item drop rates increased by ~10% at level 55+ from all sources, on top of the increase from Build 30.
  • Increased the chance of rolling Rare affixes from crafting by an additional 20%.
  • Monster infrequent items have been overhauled with updated stats. Their base stats are now more appealing, with a focus on improving defenses at higher levels. Monster infrequents that roll with two Rare affixes should be more competitive with, or in some cases even outperform, Legendary items.
  • Significantly increased the quality of affixes rolled on monster infrequent items. The relative drop rate remains unchanged, but those that drop should be better on average, with a higher chance of two affixes and one or both of those affixes being rare.
  • Significantly increased the drop rate of amulets, rings and medals of all qualities.
  • Increased flat and % damage bonuses on all level 33+ equipment (of all quality tiers) by 20-30%.
  • Increased % damage on all level 50+ set bonuses.
  • Increased base weapon damage on two-handed ranged weapons significantly. Their ratio to two-handed melee weapons is now the same as one-handed melee to ranged weapons.
  • Base weapon attack speed is now multiplicative with Attack Speed modifiers.
  • Adjusted Epic item loot tables at high levels so that items level 65-75 can drop at level 85, rather than just level 75 items. This had a negative impact on the loot selection, which could result in many duplicate drops while also removing viable level 65+ items from dropping for max level characters.
  • Adjusted Legendary item loot tables at level 85 to more consistently drop Legendaries of all levels.
  • Slightly increased the chance of generating Rare materials from dismantling Epic and Legendary items.
  • Increased the amount of scrap generated from dismantling to 3-8, up from 1-5.
  • Replaced Chance of % Damage Converted to Health on all equipment (with the exception of Krieg's Cleaver and its empowered version) with a fixed life steal.
  • Increased the chance to activate of most on Crit item effects.
  • Adjusted bonuses on all items that had a combination of Attack/Cast Speed and Offensive Ability/Crit Damage. In all cases, one or the other was focused on, but any reductions were compensated with an increase on existing stats, or the addition of new stats.
  • Adjusted most items with % Total Speed, generally splitting it into bonuses to Attack and/or Cast speed rather than affecting all speed values
  • Increased % Attack Speed bonuses on two-handed weapons and affixes. This change is retroactive, with the exception of the Alacrity Magic suffix.
  • Slightly increased % Attack Speed bonuses on gloves.
  • Increased Offensive and Defensive Ability values on gloves. This change is not retroactive on gloves with Magic quality affixes.
  • Added 3 new Rare suffixes for gloves with bonuses to Offensive and Defensive Ability.
  • Reduced % Max Resist bonus values on most items. These bonuses have been partially moved to various devotion constellations.
  • Reduced various % bonuses to specific monster types.
  • Slightly reduced some sources of % Cooldown Reduction on equipment.
  • Slightly reduced Physique requirements on non-caster Epic armor.
  • Reduced Cunning requirements on daggers by 20%
  • Reduced Cunning requirements on two-handed ranged weapons by ~10% at mid-high levels.

  • Component - Unholy Inscription: added 15 Offensive Ability, removed 15 Cunning.
  • Component - Vengeful Wraith: added 8 Offensive Ability.
  • Component - Vicious Jawbone: added 3% Attack Speed.
  • Toned down the visual effects for most item-granted and component-granted auras and toggled buffs.
  • Added a new monster infrequent shield for Fleshwarped Trolls, a new medal for Bloodlord Thalonis, a new ring for Viloth and a new caster dagger for the Loxmere Nightmage.
  • Items and affixes that were marked as "Legacy" during early access have been removed. Any items that had such affixes will lose them, but the item will remain. In all cases, legacy items had outdated values, and there is no reason to use them.

A hotfix for Build 31 was released.[2]

Tech[]

  • Fixed a bug where pets could not destroy some destructible objects (excluding loot orbs, will be fixed in a further patch).

Game[]

  • Fixed an issue with Thermite Mines not triggering celestial powers.
  • Fixed an issue with Mortar Trap and the Pet Attack command allowing it to rapid-fire.
  • A couple additional unique Rare items have been strategically placed around Lower Crossing and Wightmire to promote exploration.
