in TQAE, rogue.. but any combination can work

PS: I'm actually confused why it's named TQIT masteries instead of TQAE in the masteries section.. i was actually tempted to write something about rogue there but seeing it's named TQIT, then i have no place there :]

botebote77, we're still getting the forum layout finalised, but the general plan is to eventually have 2 separate sections - one for TQIT and one for TQAE - both of which will have their own masteries section since builds/guides will be different depending on which version people are playing.

I'm a bit like sauruz, not sure I have just one favourite out of the masteries.  I enjoy Nature and Storm and Defense mostly, but Hunting is close behind since I like ranged toons.

I like Hunting because range attack is always interesting to play.

i like ranged too that's partly why i like rogue :)  you don't need hunting to be an archer or to be a ranged attacker :)   actually I'm thinking of making a new thread here about my conversation with dlb(yes you buddy if you're reading this) and how he explained how big a nerf scatter shot really took

I love Warfare. I always have to make an effort not to pick it when making a new character.  ::) Dual wield along with Dream, shield bashing along with Defense, let me have that and I'm yours.

It's fun standing in the middle of a group of mobs and just be chillin'  ;)

Probably Spirit because it has a lot of super interesting abilities. But Earth and Storm are both up there as well!

Haven't voted yet, but I'm really curious about the results, actually.

It's a tough choice. Earth is probably my favorite right now, and with this username I don't think anyone expected anything different. Rune and Storm are the runner-ups. But then I've found all of them pretty fun, so it's a pretty close contest in all respects. There are also a bunch of things I haven't tried, so things might change. I don't find it likely, though.

Who knows? Maybe eventually I'll even cast my vote.

If spirit was actually built as a necromancer class, it would have been definitely my top choice. Since its not the case, I think I'll go with Defense for melee, Storm for caster and Rogue for any radical DOT builds  :)

I like nature, earth, warfare, spirit, dream.. But my favorite is defense!

My favorite one is Spirit!Too bad there are no skeleton summons.....Whould really like to do a necromancer build.

Not that keen myself, but I have just started a necomancer build in Asylum101's Grim Quest mod for Grim Dawn.  The mod imports the TQ classes into Grim Dawn as well as a lot of the items plus he's changed many things in the TQ masteries as well to fit the GD mould.  So Spirit now has skeletons and a Bone Fiend - pair that with GD's Nercomancer mastery and you can have an undead army at your beck and call.  Spirit gives you 3 skellies, Necromancer gives you up to 8 more and there a Blight Fiend as well if you want to add some poison/acid damage or you can use Bone Harvest to keep the bone theme going.  :) Not very far along with it yet, but I'm hoping to have some good fun with it.

My favourite Mastery is Earth, surprisingly. :P

More often that not when I start a new Characters it includes Earth as a Mastery. This takes me way back when I was playing Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction: 1/3 of the time I would chose a Druid. Maybe this has to do with my hybrid side...^^

Thanks for the heads-up MedeaFleacestealer.

Grim Quest is available since 2016 but Iíve only heard about this amazing mod this week, when Asylum101 updated his mod on the Grim Dawn Boards.

I want to play this mod but time is a problem lately. I knew that Grim Quest added the the Titan Quest Classes to Grim Dawn, but the the fact that you can mix the Titan Quest Masteries with the Grim Dawn Classes is some Breaking News for me!!! This makes this excellent mod even better.

Finally as far as big news goes, Crate Entertainement are going to make a big Announcement  tomorrow. No idea what the devs are cooking but I can clearly see that Grim Dawn Players are already swimming in added content: DLC Crucible, DCL Ashes of Malmouth, Rogue-Like Dungeon, etc.
Seriously this is quite amazing. I'm eager to hear what happens tomorrow. ;D

Oh yes, all the masteries can be mixed - no problem there.  Also has staves and spears too, as well as some of the other TQ gear. 

Yeah, I'm annoyed - Zantai's teased us with a MAJOR announcement which I won't find out about until tomorrow evening at the earliest since I'm about 6 hours ahead of the US East Coast.  That means I've got to wait ALL DAY to find out!  :(  Zantai wouldn't have written MAJOR if it wasn't major.  Much as he likes to drive us crazy, he does choose his words carefully.

Warfare, Rogue, Dream, Nature. Can't really decide between them. In Legion of Champions - definetly Rogue :)

 :)) So the news has just dropped, a new expansion for Grim Dawn. Holy ****:

Just found out - and my reaction was the same.  Holy ...  :o  And out later this year all being well.  Given Crate's tendency to expand on their original plan I think they've been working on this for quite a long while.

Awesome that they're still releasing content for their game! Although I don't play Grim Dawn, I'm certainly glad to see the ex-IronLore devs doing fine.
Title: Re: Which Mastery is your favourite?
Post by: MedeaFleecestealer on 06 March 2018, 07:52:24
Honestly, you should give it a try. 

Yeah, they seem to be doing well.  We have this to look forward to and also the new city builder project which I hope Medierra's going to tell us more about soon.  I'm hyped for both.  ;D

Have to say hunting because i am biased towards using a bow...the first class i ever finished tqit with on legendary was a brigand (although i ended up respeccing into wielding a spear), and then after watching the movie 300 i made a warden and going full-on spear/shield and that class kicked major butt...also finished legendary with it...good times :))

Defense all the way, there is nothing as manly as shieldslapping your enemies.

I forgot to add Rune :o. I don't know if you can edit your votes but there it is.

What?! I had no idea that there was a mod in Grim Dawn that added the TQ masteries.  :o That...is like a dream come true. Can't wait to try it out sometime. As far as my favorite mastery goes... I'm not really familiar with high level characters in any of them yet, but I really like some of the skills from Rogue and Storm at the moment.
Title: Re: Which Mastery is your favourite?
Post by: MedeaFleecestealer on 28 March 2018, 13:36:51
Yes, Asylum101's made it.  Changed it quite a bit to make them fit in with GD more, extended the mastery bars, added some new skills and changed/merged others.  My favourite at the moment is the Soothsayer who gets a small army of pets if you want.  Wolves, Nymph, skellies, Liche, Bone Fiend and 2-3 others I can't remember the names of at the moment.

lol brigand was my first when finishing normal (This was before AE though so probably easier anyway).
My entire tactics were simply shooting arrows at things, great with groups of enemies but takes longer on bosses since I'd go for shoot, dodge, shoot, dodge.

Warfare and Hunting
Title: Re: Which Mastery is your favourite?
Post by: XAos on 24 May 2018, 13:16:55
Dream: Provides passive buffs & a couple of high damage attacks for any class it's in.
Title: Re: Which Mastery is your favourite?
Post by: Deepblue on 25 May 2018, 13:22:19
I don't really know which one is my favorite.
They're all pretty tough to use.
Title: Re: Which Mastery is your favourite?
Post by: WNG on 26 May 2018, 14:15:19
If you had asked the question in the other way, it would have been much easier.

In my case, Hunting stands as my favorite for its awesome set of spells.
Title: Re: Which Mastery is your favourite?
Post by: mammoth_hunter on 27 May 2018, 19:11:38
You mean I have to chose one? Dream, nature, hunting, storm
