We are pleased to announce that Build 21 is now live, and with it the era of the Arcanist. This 5th class mastery rounds out our selection with an array of elemental and arcane spellcasting abilities. Not only will Arcanist open up many new build possibilities and synergies with the existing class masteries but, for the first time, people will be able to make more traditional full caster builds.
To support the host of new caster builds people will be creating, we are also introducing new caster oriented weapons. Befitting our setting and vision for casters, we have created ritual daggers and eldritch scepters. The main purpose of these weapons is to provide suitable bonuses to enhance spellcaster skills, rather than to become a main attack, which is why we've kept them melee. With their base magical damage though, they should provide an interesting option for melee caster hybrids.
You can also now start collecting Steam Trading Cards. Collect them all and unlock sweet Grim Dawn backgrounds for your Steam profile!
The build includes various fixes, including several for multiplayer, balancing adjustments and improvements such as a move-only binding that can be applied via to the toolbar to left or right mouse button.
