Thanks for that about Shattered Realm, that explains alot from my experience getting through the first 25 levels of Shattered Realm. It was very different from what was in Reign of Terror, the only other time I’ve played that part of the game at all. It was kind of easy anyway, and if you are playing Grimmer and Grimmest, the constant nasty fights are normal. I’m in Nihilistic, level 30 near the end of Act 1. Redoing Replicating Missiles build with freeze I failed at a year or two ago with this mod in Elite difficulty. Doing much better in Normal mode.
I’ve been thinking lately that this mod along with Reign of Terror are so good, I no longer have any need to play older games like Diablo 2 (Resurrected will be a curious museum piece) and Titan Quest because Grimarillion is so much better. It’s not perfect, particularly the quick leveling system that ends quickly, but while it lasts it’s an amazing experience.
Talking about this because I believe Shadr_Sabirov was insulting the mod saying it’s still worse than the base experience.
There are other damn good mods on these boards I’d play as well if I didn’t need the specific classes Grimarillion offers, like the one with 50 classes, etc, I could play for infinite value as far as builds are concerned.
I may very well go back to those old classics at some point, but that’s what I’m thinking right now. The Titan Quest modding scene is awkward as I have to quit every game to get past Giza, it’s a flaw in the 10x mod, or whatever it’s called (and the repeating bosses of the same type is odd to say the least, LOL). Grim Dawn works flawlessly in comparison, all I see is very rarely a missing tag on an item, and that’s it.
I’ve really enjoyed the Spirit Mastery I decided to have as a secondary synergy for my build. I’m really enjoying these skills now that I’ve tried my first new mastery.
