First time player to grim dawn, loooong time ARPG player… Below is a link to my build.
So I need some help, and I am going to order them in terms of importance, to me.
I’m really struggling with 15k life and capped resistances (minus stun which isn’t a problem. I am doing just ok DPS at 50k, but I did just hit 100 in Ultimate yesterday… Based on my stats and checking out other’s builds I feel like my stats are fine minus I don’t have 250k dps… So, do I go back to Elite and do SR / Cruicible or do I stay in Ultimate for better drops and do farm routes? Is there anything else in my build that needs to be fixed?
In grim tools when I uploaded my character it seems I’m supposed to have five extra attribute points and eight extra skill points. Are they awarded through some end game means? I hit 100, I got all my devotions, I thought the only way to get attribute and skill points was via leveling. Given that grim tools thinks I should still have five attribute and eight skill points kind of made me go “huh”.
There are bosses that just chew me up and spit me out. Nemesis bosses for instance require a lot of kitting… I built a paladin assuming he would be super tanky. I don’t care about long fights, in fact I love a really long fight… Problem is my paladin doesn’t feel tanky enough for a paladin… What’s normal in terms of tankiness? Are Paladin’s capable of face tanking without having to retreat or is that simply not this game? Ok if the answer is its not, I’m just trying to get a baseline of “how” I should be playing a paladin.
Lastly, I should probably add I steam rolled Ultimate mode until I hit the end of Ugdenbog. I beat the “Base Game” and started working my way through the expansion content. In Ultimate vs Elite and Normal I feel like I’m hitting a brick wall. I am really looking for a sanity check that I’m focusing on the right things so I don’t waste time and get frustrated. Hoping you all can share some tribal knowledge you’ve learned over the years with me.
Thanks in advance!
