Patch 188.8.131.52 (20th December 2017)
Major New Features
The Crucible DLC has been updated with two new maps: Crucible of the Void and Crucible of the Legion, featuring new layouts and environments to spice up your Crucible experience. These maps are available to all owners of the Crucible DLC.
Ashes of Malmouth enemies have been introduced to the Crucible DLC, starting with wave 41. In addition, even greater challenges and rewards await you with the all-new waves 151-170, focused primarily on Ashes of Malmouth encounters. Test your builds and skills against some of the toughest battles in Grim Dawn yet! These features are available exclusively for owners of Ashes of Malmouth and the Crucible DLC.
Added a new Monster Infrequent that drops exclusively from the Loghorrean
Added a new Monster Infrequent that drops exclusively from Theodin Marcell, the Shaper of Flesh
A new Checkpoint is now available after defeating Wave 150, available with the Ashes of Malmouth expansion only.
Turret Defenses now scale better with level.
Inferno Beacon: now also reduces Armor with each attack. Fire Storm upgrade now also applies % Damage Reduction to affected targets.
Deathchill Beacon: increased freeze chance on its basic attack. Cold Surge upgrade now slows and reduces Resistances by -10%/-15% instead of freezing enemies.
Stormcaller Beacon: now reduces All Resistance with each attack, but for a reduced duration. The Shock upgrade now also reduces Defensive Ability on the affected targets.
Fixed an issue where Monster Infrequents significantly below the player's level could drop.
The Herald of Flame and Herald of Destruction no longer spawn in the Crucible.
The skill weapon qualifer "shieldNoRanged" will now function properly with spears.
Added support for up to 40 skill masteries.
Dismantling can now use dynamite in stashes as well.
Fixed Vitality Decay damage not working with HUD status icons.
The usability range for some dungeon entrances as well as npcs was decreased to allow controller users to more accurately interact with targets.
Fixed using Turbo mode on the Steam Controller with the Interact action.
Fixed issues with not being able to interact with doors and other objects in combat when using a controller.
Increased maximum number of times the game will attempt to reroll an already learned Blueprint or a Unique item previously dropped in the current session from 5 to 10.
Bosses that have a bonus chance to drop a Blueprint now have an expanded pool for those Blueprints and a higher chance to drop them.
Updated several Ashes of Malmouth bosses to have a bonus chance to drop Blueprints
The "A Wake of Carnage" Achievement now requires 50000 monster kills
The "An Ocean of Blood" Achievement now requires 100000 monster kills
The "Mass Extermination" Achievement now requires 200000 monster kills
Fixed an issue where Grava'Thul would cast an invisible ability that dealt damage and reduced resists for several seconds. He now correctly casts his Wing Gust, which is actually telegraphed and not invisible. Further reduced the frequency of his charge skill, reduced his base run speed and reduced the duration his Annihilation Orb follows you.
Further adjustment to chest loot tables of all qualities to compensate for the increased loot pool in Ashes of Malmouth. Overall, unique items will be dropping more consistently. This increase was more significant for non-boss chests.
Weapons and Accessories can now roll Magic-quality flat Vitality damage prefixes.
Adjusted Physique Requirements on Torso, Leg and Waist armor. Adjusted Spirit Requirements on Head and Torso caster armor. Overall, the requirements are a little lower, particularly at higher levels. (Affects Ashes of Malmouth only)
