Not new to the expansion, but to AE is Shadowmaw a fire breathing hyena hero who randomly spawns in the cave in the Phocian Swamp.  If you thought dealing with Cyclops was hard wait until you run into him.  Being not that high a level when you find him it's quite difficult.  Advice is to equip a bow, potshot and retreat, doing this all the way out of the cave since his leash has been extended and he'll now chase you all the way to the entrance.  I hadn't run into him since installing the expansion and wondered if he'd been removed from the game as being too difficult, but he spawned for my Runesmith, giving her her first death when she tried to go toe-to-toe with him as an experiment to see how well she could cope.  She didn't.  So back to bow and potshotting which took time, but did succeed in the end.  :)

At least he's not quite related so can be avoided if you want.

Killing Shadow maw on Normal before leaving Greece is a Steam Achievement, and when my newest Xmax Dreamkiller saw 3 of him (but couldnt get credit due to mods) I cried a little. 10/12 distortion wave's EBD took all of them down in 4 waves each though, but shes super twinked too.

Do you have a copy of that list of old heroes? I want to see how many I recognize by name :)

I do.  I'll try and post it, but I think I need to reconfigure it as it's in table format at the moment.

Actually we do have a place to post new heroes:

https://titanquestfans.net/index.php?topic=171.msg1241;topicseen#new

So I guess new ones in the first 4 Acts in there and Ragnarök ones in this thread.

Tbh, Dark elves make Machae Grandmaster damage seem like a joke, what damage do these guys do???
very late answer but i actually tested this in epic.. tests for normal and legendary not yet done.. i tested this with one black elf only at a time but with different black elves.. all give same result.. they seem to deal vit damage also but the thing that makes black elves so dangerous is they cast a debuff on you and the numbers are what i tested (all values in %):

1st test:
pierce resist: from 24 to -14
physical resist: from 18 to -20
vit resist: from 65 to 27

2nd test:
pierce resist: from 61 to 23
physical resist: from 26 to -12
vit resist: from 36 to -2

3rd test:
pierce resist: from 24 to -14
physical resist: from 18 to -20
vit resist: from 45 to 7

for those who do not know the mechanics of RR yet, this will help:

https://titanquestfans.net/index.php?topic=238.0

from the values, the first thing i saw is the RR should be absolute because only those 3 are reduced.. 2nd, it went into the negatives so it should be flat.. simple math then gives a flat absolute reduction of -38

so in xmax, playing without any CC or arrow dancer is almost suicidal

im suprised, no1 talked about phantoms in mimer maze, when you kill then they cast spell breaker, that drains all your mana and buffs, pretty annoying for meeles.

I cant even think in xmaxx.

@sauruz late answer but might as well.
They are annoying as well but not really life threatening due to their relatively low damage output.
Unless you have a low-HP nature class dependent on HotO for his HP, they should be fine.
Since they are more annoying than actually dangerous I just run past them in xmax.

@botebote77 this is a good find. This make gear planning for AE:R easier.
So it's basically a debuff to Vita/Phys/Pierce. Might as well stack resists then instead of the -% damage from demons/magical

I'm guessing Fafnir and Sutry are underwhelming atm. Anyone experienced One-Shots in AE:R yet?

Is it just me or did the Giants in Land's End get a massive damage buff? I'm running test concepts on "mage" toons in Legendary and they are critting very hard at 1.1-1.2k DA (about 2-3 hits).

This is reminiscient of me running 400-600 DA mages before I knew any better :( . I'm running capped fire and -10-15% physical resist as well. Anyone know what seems to be hitting me?

I think turning immunities as high resistances into damage absorption went a little too far on the example of ice giants in Jotunheim. These are nearly immune to ice shards skill. Good thing storm mastery also has lightning but I don't want to know how earth mastery performs in Muspelheim.

There are werewolf mobs in Jotunheim that seem to have some of the highest melee damage I have seen in game. They have a double swing attack that they use on you immediately and that appears to be the source of damage spikes. It is two hits technically so heal on low health artifacts have a chance to proc. They are easy to avoid with slow or skills like the new briar ward, but you don't want to be cornered by 2 of them still. Like when teleporting from Mimir to the surface, if you logged out prior to that and the area was repopulated.

i think most of the adjustments is because we're not used to act 5 yet.. the mobs just after the golden boar, i regularly die there with xmax.. it was only recently that i figured out how to deal with them (i think).. that will all change when i die there again ;D

good eye on ice and fire giants.. on my thunderer then i will switch builds as needed.. or get both lightning and ice shards

the wolves i think deal bleed but not sure.. i think i checked that sometime before but can't remember anymore
