I’ve been playing Grim Dawn since its early days… I have a lot of characters level 30-40 that I stopped playing with each expansion. Always went back to a pet build or a warder. I’ve played a pure shaman to 50 and a pure solider to 50. So I’m very good at the skill trees with them. I changed them around ALOT during my levels from 50+ to manage resist/armor - different builds either Phys with some lighting… or Lighting with some Phys.
My questions is since I had all this extra gear and stuff in my bank from my pervious warders… playing him has been fun and I haven’t had a single problem with Veteran or Elite. I actually found Elite to be easier then Veteran by far… because of the level 50 epics. Right when I hit level 50 I had the “Stone fist Rebuke” (which is best 2hand wep for Phys dmg)… in fact I’m still using it and will be for awhile… and a couple other really nice Legendarys. So when I started Elite I had like 25k dmg and 12k health. I literally didn’t get an upgrade from those level 50 legendarys til I hit 85 and found 1-2 greens/blues that were better.
When I hit Ultimate - I had a problem with Poison res - cause as a Warder we have none that comes on gear… so I had to swap some pieces - rings - components - rep enchants (those 3 things allowed me to continue tearing a path through Ultimate. Only really having trouble in a couple places. Which was ALWAYS remedied by crafting some resist potions (which last for 7 mins btw)
My stats at 85 --> - all stats points into Physq - just a few for jewelry.
16-18k (health) --> 27k dps (unbuffed) self buffed its about 35k (Savagery)
I have 85 res Fire/Ice/Light 60 Pierce (top row)
I have 80 Bleed/ 66 Vitality/54 Aether/ 37 Chaos
my attack speed with weapon is Extremely high for 2hand @ 133% (unbuffed)
140% with savagery. Its like a 180 in total… but diminishing returns.
Which allows me to proc Feral Hunger ALOT (regen proc) - I have over 300 regen while normally.
I also multiple layers of Defense via Giants Blood - Life Steal devos - and a few others… I hardly die… unless Im standing inside a Aether aoe or a Chaos aoe.
I just wanted to double check with people about where they stand with there warders - res - health - DPS - areas they have trouble? or ideas I could use.
Steps of Torments - with a few res potion are pretty easy if I pay attention to floor dmg.
Same thing with bastion of Choas - a few res potions to bring ALL my resist to 80 or 85… then I just face tank most stuff.
(thanks for everyone who read this and gives me some feedback)
I would love to post my spec/build on here… but don’t know how?>
Last question… which Relic should I be using at 85. I have most Relics Tier 1+2+3 recipes… none of the Legendary ones.
lvl 18 was Calamity lvl 25 was the Mistborn Tailsmen lvl 35 Im using the Juggernaut. I wanna make the lvl 60+ relic… wondering if I should make the lvl 50-60.
