I played Grim Dawn to the end of the first game and some of Ashes of Malmouth. Grim Dawn isn’t a bad game, but I found it very repetitive and dependent on having an optimized character build.
The best time I had with Grim Dawn was playing a necromancer/occultist rolling around with a gang of skeletons and some other minions. They relieved most of the tedium of fighting endless mobs.
But It does look good. A bit of weird lore going on though. Cathay is the largest human kingdom now?
Their king and queen are physical gods that are older than the continent’s, predating the old ones. Does that mean that Cathay is now an older nation than Nehekhara, or even the high elves? Where were these guys during the collapse of the polar warp gates?
I can see their lore has been written so that they can plausibly show up in Age of Shitmar and create New Cathay.
