Default Grim Misadventure #68: Mandated Reputation

Grim Misadventures, your number one source for all up and coming Grim Dawn content, is at it again. The next build is going to flesh out the faction system in all its glory. That means new items, new spawns and a whole new reason to set out into the world.

We have talked about bounties before. The system is now fully fleshed out, featuring 145 bounties split between the gameís 7 friendly factions. This includes hunting down 35 brand new hero monsters that will spawn exclusively through the bounty system.




Bounties will often guide you towards the best spots to hunt down the respective factionís enemies, but sometimes you may find yourself traveling to unexpected places, eagerly stalking a foe you have never met before. Unlike standard quests, bounties are unguided. That means minimal instructions and no quest markers on the mini-map. Itís just you, nature and your target(s). Will you prove to be a master bounty hunter?


But all this talk about bounties doesnít mean anything if you do not have the reputation to access the Bounty Table. For this, we are introducing a new set of items known as Mandates and Writs.

If you have already made several characters in Grim Dawn (Probably a handful of you, am I right?), then Mandates are for you. By purchasing one of these scrolls and placing it in your Transfer Stash, you can use it on another character to permanently boost reputation gain with a faction by 100% on that difficulty.

Mandate of Devilís Crossing



But whatís in it for the character that did all the monster slaughter in the first place? In that case, our proprietary Grim Dawn Writ technology is for you! By using a Writ, you will permanently increase your reputation gain with that faction on the Next difficulty, a great way to get a head start when the monster slaughter gets tougher. Note that, unlike Mandates, Writs cannot be transferred.

Writ of Devilís Crossing



These special scrolls, unique to each factionís Quartermaster, become available to characters that reach Revered status, a testament to and reward for your dedication.

All of this and more is coming with Build 25, which is expected to enter quality testing in April.

Like knowing what is coming up next for Grim Dawn? Check back on 04/13/2015 for our regular development updates!
