Grim Dawn Developers Improved the Devotion System in Latest Update

Update v1.1.9.8 Crate Entertainment

Grim Dawn is a rather unique action RPG because it lets you play with different masteries to make fun and powerful builds. In the recent Update v1.1.9.8, developers made changes to the constellations in the Devotion system.

The Devotion System is a mechanic in Grim Dawn, denoted by different constellations, that grants you different stats and abilities that will complement your build. You gain up to 55 devotion points by repairing/cleansing the shrines scattered throughout the in-game world.

After seven years since the game's launch, the developers finally made major changes to the Devotion System to shake things up. If you are playing a pet build, the newly buffed Huntress is a must-have as this constellation now grants 8% increased healing. That's not all! It also increases your HP by 450, which is great for survivability. Don't worry, the Huntress increases the health of your pets by 12% as well, so they, too, can take more hits.

If you're using a build that deals Vitality damage, Wendigo is one of the constellations that you need to get. Aside from buffing up Vitality damage, the Wendigo now grants 5% increased run speed as well. It might not be much, but it's still noticeable.
