A Pic on how I do Crate of Entertainment:
Where to Farm:
Ever wondered what do to after hitting level 100 with the budget builds?
The usual response would be to do Skeleton Key Dungeons on Ultimate and maybe Crucible once you can.
But personally, I would advise against all that. Instead, what I find easiest and at the same time efficient is to do Shattered Realms Shards 65-66 on Normal. You do need to grind your way to there first before you can Craft Celestial Waystones and start on Shard 65, but that is a one time thing and we are talking about doing it on Normal difficulty. So that shouldn’t be a problem.
If you are worried about dying, then don’t be. Unless you are playing on Hardcore where death is permanent ofcourse. Because on Normal, even in Shattered Realms, enemies do not heal their health upon your death. It makes the entire thing much easier compared to Skeleton Key Dungeons and the Crucible.
If you are wondering about what the reward looks like, here it is with my Budget Occultist: https://i.imgur.com/5EbA1oG.jpg
If you are wondering what the reward looks like if you cannot complete it in time: https://i.imgur.com/1cQAd0J.jpg
Now, you might be wondering, why 65-66. Why not say 75-76, maybe.
Well, the answer is simple. It is just easier and there isn’t much of a difference interms of reward.
If you do not have the Expansion(s):
If you only have the base game:
The Sammich Demon: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/pZrgOBkN
Note: The above build is untested, except for the devotion setup, which should be solid.
Note II: The above build is also a budget build aimed at providing you with an idea of what to go for when starting out.
Note III: Relic left blank means, go with the best one you find. Do not fret too much over it, however.
Grim Dawn is one of the best ARPGs I have played. So if you like it, I’d wholeheartedly recommend atleast getting Ashes of Malmouth expansion so that you have more stuff to play with.
If you have Ashes of Malmouth Expansion, but not Forgotten Gods:
