Build 14 is an update that was released on November 4, 2013. Beyond various fixes and balancing adjustments, this update included an optional "classic" targeting scheme, primarily designed for playing ranged builds.
Loot drop rates have been adjusted to even out the distribution of powerful items. The intent is to have rare items dropping more consistently without creating all-or-nothing situations that leave some players feeling satisfied and others wishing for better drop rates.
5 one-shot chests have been added to the world to encourage exploration.
Fixed an issue where Direni would stand idle for several seconds before attacking when players chose the hostile resolution.
Fixed an issue where Direni would transition to combat without preserving his original facing.
Fixed an issue with Poison and Bleed Duration Reduction attributes being incorrectly added to displayed resistance values or resetting the respective resistance to 0 (based on which item was equipped first).
Reworked a buff on Viloth that wasn't well telegraphed but giving him a significant boost in damage.
Armor physical damage absorption decreased for both players and enemies.
Enemy physical damage has been scaled down to compensate.
More health potions will drop in the first few levels to allow players to build a small stock at a time when the price of buying them is still prohibitive.
Probability to hit and OA / DA formulas, along with enemy attribute, OA and DA values have been adjusted again to smooth out some scaling issues.
The amount of OA/DA derived from 1 point of Cun/Phy has been lowered from 0.66 to 0.5. This affects enemies as well as players, so it won't mean a reduction in player effectiveness. It will increase the value of OA/DA gains from skills and gear.
Most importantly, we are pleased to announce what is perhaps the crowning feature in Grim Dawn: player long johns! You will now start with pants that you can remove to expose totally styling long johns. In all seriousness though, the main purpose of this was to provide starting leg armor to help reduce the early armor to damage curve.
