I’m a new player coming from Diablo 3 to give this game a try and so far, I like it as it feels very rewarding. Have a quick question. In Diablo 3, I liked to play as a Jade Harvester Build so I’m thinking if a build exists in Grim Dawn that I can try to gear up for, please let me know.
Note: For those wondering what the Jade Harvester build does, please review this you tube video.
if you refer to the jade harvest effect of “consume dots” then no, no such thing exists
if you refer to a general “dot em up” build, there are some dot builds or plague spreaders, tho they are a bit more on the niche side of things or the dot is used in tandem with other regular skills/dmg
There is a mod called Grimarillion and it has D3 classes that were retooled for Grim Dawn. None of them seem all that great to me, but I am also under major Diablo fatigue so that could be why.
But if you just want to go legit no mod, Oathkeeper can throw a shield like the Crusader and spin to win like the Barbarian. Inquisitor could be a good Demon Hunter stand in. I’ve only messed around with it for a little bit, but it can use 2 one hander guns. It has seals that can act as traps. I’ve seen those used in videos.
I like the Grim Dawn Necromancer a tons better than the D3 one, still not the same as D2 thou. So there is that class. Arcanist is basically the Sorceress. I haven’t played with the actual damage dealing spells, but I do have it as my second class to my main for the buffs and passives.
I have no idea what Grim Dawn class or class combo could be like the Monk.
Try AAR (Albrecht’s Aether Ray) builds, they’re very newbie-friendly and spell itself is similar to a certain Wizard’s spell from Diablo3 (Disintegrate, if i remember correctly). Lightning-based AAR is the most newbie-friendly, probably.
