I’ve played a bit of Grim Dawn on and off for years now, but have never really progressed passed the beginning of elite. The thing that has been holding me back from really getting into it over other games has been my lack of goal for the game. I enjoyed playing it, but I always had goals for other games that I really wanted to accomplish. I think its about time that I finally get really into this game.
Every Class Combination leveled to 100
Originally I was planning on just going for the 36 dual classes, and maybe also going for the single class completion once I finished that out, but I’ve been inspired by the journeys of @adoomgod @Contragor and @CaiusMartius in this thread Playtesters' plea for help - Zantai's Last Secret, so of course Classless is included and because I can’t just do the dual classes and Classless, all of the Monoclasses are also included. That’s, what, 46 characters? That doesn’t seem so bad…
Filling out a Grim Dawn Holy Grail
At one point I stumbled across MrLlamaSC streaming D2 and his farm for the grail, at the time I wasn’t sure what it was so I looked into it. Basically, it’s one of every item in the game. I’m not sure if there’s a list accepted by this community as to what constitutes a Grail, and a brief search didn’t seem to show anything.
Yesterday, on his stream, there was a bit of a chat with @MikeFic_YT about what might be in the Grail. We were kinda thinking every 82+ Epic and Legendary and all of the high level Relics. Generally speaking, it probably won’t include Badge of Perseverance, but some Grails will be better than others.
As far as goals go, these seem pretty straight forward and completely achievable given enough time. For full transparency, I will be playing hardcore from a completely fresh save (just deleted all previous data as of writing this), I will be using Grim Internals because I can’t live without that info panel and the custom HP bars (and I guess the larger auto-pickup range? Is that a thing or is that base game now? I don’t know anymore…), any screenshots might look more awesome than normal thanks to @JMD’s wonderfully gorgeous GrimUI (seriously though, go check it out if you haven’t!), and the most controversial of the bunch, I’ll be using GDStash to keep track of my collection. As far as I can tell there’s no better way to keep track of such a thing (yet…).
Rules for GDStash:
NO CRAFTING ALLOWED
Items are set to Move from DB to Stash, not to Copy. This means that if I die with a piece of my collection on me, I must farm it again.
Alas, the purpose of this thread becomes clear! It is to catalog my journey, and to keep me honest.
- leveling all 46 classes to 100
- collecting lots of items (seriously though, input on the Grail goal is appreciated! Let’s make this a thing!)
- grim internals
- grim ui
- gdstash extra stash space and collection tab
- gdstash editing anything besides character name (if i mess that bit up)
