this is a very interesting change. though set still needs some QoL buffs like extra skill points, pjys res etc, this tweak is really welcomed.

My Avenger Warder is pleased.

May I ask why removed it ?
Im plan to use Ghol set for HC sr100 ~ 110

@thepowerofmediocrity
@Maya

Edit: so My new plan is Lost souls set with Rotdrinker 3 BF 2 Hellhound Vitality Pet

Again no improvements to Cold PRM (Faraths Cube) and Slatsharrs Crest :sleepy:

Why ? Avengers Warlord had only 1 advantage vs Warder - duration IT ( but even with him it was worse)

+1 for skill points proposal

I very much agree with this statement!
So much good stuff in this hotfix, well done Crate!

Appreciate the patch.

Rotgheist changes are there to help Primal Strike?

Also, does anyone have any insight on the lightning EoR changes? And the overlap on Empyrion’s Mercy and Kymon’s Blade.

  • Mythical Circlet of the Great Serpent: removed Cooldown Reduction modifier for Summon Blight Fiend and increased its Acid damage modifier to 45

Does not make any sense, why need to remove the only identity of this circle?
Rot drinker does not coexist with Ghol’s set, what you need to do is to buff this gear, instead of nerf.
This reduces the variety of builds.

Please revert back or move reduce recharge property to Ghol’s set, seriously.

Variety isn’t great of a point in this specific case because normal BF and unstable anomaly using virtually the same gear is a variety problem in itself.

I understand that if non-Ghol BF didn’t work out well before then it’s unreasonable to think it would now. But rolling everything back isn’t the only way.

This change definitely made me sad. My Liliana Vess meme build relied on that helm. But please dont take this the wrong way Crate, I love the game and all the work you put into it. Classic title and one of my favorite games of all time, because of items like the Mythical Circlet of the Great Serpent.

This was one of your coolest items/item modifiers, particularly because its not a set item and therefore can be used thematically, outside of the box (build depth and creative freedoms being one of the best strengths in Grim Dawn).

Its possible maybe there is another, non-set item that has equal CDR for the BF/Unstable Anomalies, maybe I just dont know about it. Is there something I am missing?
