Grim Dawn adds new locations, monsters, rewards, and Monster Totems in its latest update

The map of Grim Dawn in a quite literal sense as ARPG’s newest version update opens up new side areas that were previously blocked off for players to delve in to. Naturally, these new areas house a host of new foes to face like new minibosses and a new Celestial Monster Totem themed after the monsters in the Tomb of the Heretic, as well as new treasure to find in the form of three Legendary weapons and seven Monster Infrequents.

The latest update has also made a number of gameplay changes certain areas, Monster Infrequents, class skills, and items among other things. It’s another dense set of patch notes to wade through, but the salient details are certainly worth the time to read for those deep in the game.

This is in my opinion the best ARPG out. I honestly don’t get all the love PoE gets while this game is rarely mentioned. I’d love to see a sequel (or prequel even) with an updated engine and graphics. I’ll pre-order that day 1.

PoE gets way, way more content than GD and there’s something to be said for having a closed system to prevent cheating (making your gear “matter”), but GD makes up for it by having a very deep item game, including a well thought out target farming system and despite the insane depth is probably the best balanced arpg ever.

Personally I think the fact PoE allows and encourages pay to win via allowing items to be sold between players on 3 rd party websites using the premium stash tab which they themselves sell in the cash shop is ethically dubious at best. If you don’t think that’s Grinding Gears Games way of getting their take from the gold farmers you’re kidding yourself. Also if you think no one just opens up their wallet and buys the best gear in the game for themselves via this method you’re also kidding yourself.

At least Grim Dawn is honest enough to just allow your save game to be hacked without finding a way to directly be a party to and beneficiary of the cheating.

I think trading not only trivializes too much of the game, but also is a really bad experience both when buying and selling so I just play SSF.

You got it somewhat wrong. Trading convenience sites like poe.trade always used PoE’s official API that devs had prepared years before they made an official trading search engine.
You can always trade using normal tabs by listing items on the forums with specific formatting (it makes them visible to trading sites) but it is cumbersome to do.

They have said in a recent manifesto that stash tabs MTX are the thing they get most of their funding from, but they also want each league to have a free stash for storing new league-specific items to not have them bloat normal stash (they have done such a free league stash in 2 most recent leagues).

In my opinion it’s unfair to call those devs “ethically dubious” and selling “p2w” since they are probably one of the only ones in the F2P market that are actually not doing that (Warframe coming second, but Warframe has more aggressive MTX marketing).

POE gets more press because of the online part.

This update is really amazing. These devs should win all the praise for keeping this game updated as they do.

Ooohhhh, new areas to explore? And holy hell that changelog is massive. I’m down, might try to get back into duo leveling with my brother since he’s on a PoE hiatus for a bit.
