Grim Dawn Patch Notes – June 9, 2023

[Crucible]

  • Human enemies can now equip at most one piece of armor or accessory to remove the possibility of overlapping % Resist bonuses that make these monsters difficult to kill
  • Fixed an issue where the Forgotten Gods achievements could not be viewed within the Crucible

[Shattered Realm]

  • Human enemies can now equip at most one piece of armor or accessory to remove the possibility of overlapping % Resist bonuses that make these monsters difficult to kill
  • Reduced spawn frequency of Eldritch Armor, Human Ascendant and Korvaak’s Chosen heroes
  • Updated boss spawn tables. Some bosses have graduated to higher shards and others have been demoted.
  • Essence of the Shattered Realm now also grants a stacking bonus to % Retaliation damage in addition to its bonuses to non-retaliation damage.

[Animation]

  • Adjusted positioning of off-hand items on the female PC to better align with the hand

[Tech]

  • Fixed an issue where skill modifiers that added % Chance of Projectile Passthrough would add their bonus twice. As this was not a display issue, all affected modifiers have had their values adjusted to compensate.
  • Fixed an issue where Upheaval would display its % Weapon damage tooltip incorrectly when used in conjunction with auto-attack replacers. This was a display issue only.
  • Fixed an issue with shadows on Low settings.
  • Fixed an issue where loot comparisons on the ground could cause a freeze/crash.

[Game]

  • Reduced monster % Fire Resist by 2% on Elite and Ultimate difficulty
  • Significantly increased the cooldown on the heal abilities of Eldritch Armor and Human Ascendant heroes to match the cooldown of heal abilities on comparable Support archetypes
  • Reduced the % Heal value of Eldritch Armor and Human Ascendant heroes (with the exception of Halganux ~ Supporter) to match values on comparable heroes with baseline heal abilities
  • Increased the Health of the Loghorrean boss, along with the damage on some of its abilities. The poor Voice of Ch’thon’s vocal cords have gotten a bit sore over the years and needed a tune up.
  • Increased the Health of Korvaak and Theodin Marcell.
  • Increased the health, damage and adjusted the skill usage of some older bosses to bring them up to speed of their more modern counterparts. Will let you figure out which ones the hard way!
