Grim Dawn V1.0.2.0

[Major New Features]

  • The game engine has received a major overhaul to its renderer, allowing the game to run on DirectX11. While results will vary from system to system, this will generally result in improved performance.


[Game]

  • Rare Crafting Materials (ex. Blood of Ch'thon) can now be placed in the Transfer Stash.
  • Adjusted overall loot tables scaling with level. They now drop significantly less Common and Single Affix items as player level increases. This change also applies to the Crucible.
  • Increased drop rate of Rare items at all levels, scaling with game difficulty. This works in conjunction with above. Not only will less Single Affix items drop, but more of the Double Affix items will have at least one Affix of Rare Quality. Rare item drop rates remain unchanged in the Crucible.
  • Improved results from Random Crafting Blueprints. They will no longer generate single affix items. Items that roll a Rare affix will instead roll a Rare Affix + Magic Affix. In addition, the chance of generating a double Rare item from crafting has been increased. Increased chance of rolling a Rare Affix on Single-Affix Rare quality blueprints.
  • Increased drop rate of Ectoplasm from Ghosts
  • Increased drop rate of Frozen Hearts and Mutated Scales from Slith
  • Increased drop rate of Components from Chthonic Cultists, particularly of Consecrated Wrappings
  • Updated many spell and damage effects with more efficient particle counts and less bright spots, reducing the intensity of these effects when multiple overlap and marginally improving performance.
  • Inquisitor Creed and Kasparov have received new VO
