I recently started playing Grim Dawn in the last two weeks and have gotten myself through to ultimate. I’ve done a lot of research into the Reaper class I’m playing but would appreciate some thoughts on the build I’m working on.
Hey I know this is a bit old lol but Im just starting a reaper build as well. Can you explain the difference between using decay or ill omen? Does the damage reduction work on bosses? And I keep reading old threads mentioning ill omen is only physical damage reduction but idk if thats been patched. If theyre both the same it seems like ill omen might be better?
Patched. Was only Physical also in the skill’s description
Omen has more damage reduction but RE is a more offensive spell:
has 33 skills modifiers in total whereas Ill Omen only 15 throughout the items
RE is one of the best proccer in he game, perfect for Twin Fangs for example
I would always take RE unless you have skill modifers and stuff to Ill Omen from your set and items and it just better suits your build. Or maybe lots of +X to Ill Omen so that the damage reduction is considerably higher than RE.
You can see the difference in proccing in the following video. It’s night and day.
