Crate Entertainment has unpacked a new patch for Grim Dawn, bringing the popular action RPG up to version 184.108.40.206 and introducing a variety of fixes and blance changes. Ready for the full notes? Read on:
Fixed an issue that caused the Tributes Earned to be higher than intended for Clients in a Multiplayer Session when starting the event at Wave 50 or 100. Previously, only the host was receiving the correct values. This mechanic was already in effect for Singleplayer, so the fix impacts Multiplayer only.
Slightly reduced Tributes Earned after Restarting the Crucible at a Checkpoint (after cashing out or failing the event).
Fixed a crash in the Crucible when building defenses in multiplayer.
Updated Attacks Per Second calculations.
