Grim Misadventure #165 - Bring them to Darkness

Grim Misadventures have arrived.

Last time, we revealed some of the corruption seeping forth from the Tomb of the Heretic and the profound effect it had on the denizens of the Korvan lands.

As you already know, v1.1.5.0 is going to be Grim Dawn’s largest free content update ever, and we mean it when we say that.

Featuring 4 new dungeons, including a 5th roguelike dungeon, 12 new bosses and mini-bosses and an array of new items, v1.1.5.0 has a ton of new content to look forward to for owners of Forgotten Gods.

If you don’t own the latest expansion, don’t fret! The upcoming patch features a massive update to Epic and Rare quality items that applies to all versions of the game!

There is, as always, MOAR, but we’ll leave some surprises for patch day!

Today, we’ll delve deeper into the shadows of the Tomb of the Heretic. Feeling betrayed by his god, a traitor to the Korvan faith sought to unravel the Eldritch Sun’s influence. In desperation, he turned to the night and found comfort within its tendrils.


Such betrayal alone would warrant grave repercussions, but that was not the end to the heretic’s despicable acts. In his celestial pursuits, he turned loyal Korvan magi into conduits of his vile schemes. Through seven rings, they were bound to his will. Through the rings, they each fell to darkness.

Rings

What good are powerful rings though if you can’t get them as loot! V1.1.5.0 features 4 new Monster Infrequents, 8 new Epic items and a staggering 15 new Legendary items found only within the new roguelike dungeon!

Just when will you get to enjoy this massive addition to the game? As you’d expect, this much content takes a lot of work, and we are not skimping on quality. There is still balancing and bug fixing to be done, so at this time we predict that v1.1.5.0 will be released around the end of November to mid-December. Rest assured that you will have access to all these goodies in time for the holidays!

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Grim Misadventures are posted less frequently as we focus on supporting the expansion and its upcoming content updates. Check back on 12/09/2019 for the next Grim Misadventure as we wrap up the year and talk about what’s still to come!

Sounds okay to me.

Perfect timing to delete everything and start fresh “around the end of November to mid-December”.
Hopefully with a little more enthusiasm than today.
As awesome as GD is,it´s has gotten a tad bit boring after 6k+ hours. :scream:
