    Arguable IMO - never really got into Grim Dawn for some reason whereas I've logged hundreds oh hours on TQ!

    "Complete balance rework with improvements to all Masteries, damage types, unique items and sets" - hmmmm, not too sure about this - I used to sort of follow a TQ mastery guide back in the day called "Poinas' Guide" - looks like I'll have to learn all over again! :D

    Hahah Poinas's spirit guide using dream/spirit and a staff shooting out 3 projectiles each with -15% flat health decrease?

    Sad that i still remember this?

    On to the second act. Really good fun, some nice boss fights and looking forward to finding a really nice bow for my ranger.

    Time to dig this up!

    Just starting Titan quest for the first time!

    They have added Controller support (via a beta patch) so I'm trying it and so far plays pretty well.

    First timer but so far I like it, been after something to scratch the diablo itch. It's dated, sure, but feels pretty good and I love the setting.

    Any tips?

    I just have Anniversary, may grab the DLCs at some point if I stick with it.

    Have you tried Grim Dawn ? If not, there is a mod for that game that were inspired by Diablo I and II - Reign of Terror - Might be worth checking out maybe ?

    Here is the link to the Grim Dawn thread that exists here.

    Thanks I may take a look.

    I've had Grim Dawn for years but never really got deep into it. They added controller support so I should try it again. (Controller is key as I play via the TV on the sofa)

    Ooo interesting. I have been playing this on and off for some time. Love the game but sometimes find the controls annoying ... How does it play on a pad?

    It feels ok, I think considering it wasn't built with gamepads in mind, they have done a good job.

    It maps abilities to certain buttons etc. I'm early doors so I can't speak for how it will play when you have loads of abilities to use but at the mo it's doing good

    It puts the correct button prompts on screen to (for an Xbox/windows controller)

    Just have to go in to the games settings in steam and opt in to beta patches. The controller support is currently part of a beta roll out

    The 2 DLCs are just a few pounds each on CDKEYS. So is the main game, I got it for 2.99.

    Pretty sure each expansion is about that price at the mo on there.

    It took me an hour to realise you hold down "A" to pick up loot. It doesn't display visually on the screen? Or is there a setting to make it do so?

    Like a bit of text to say "sword" or whatever is led on the ground like it would in say diablo 3?

    Lol glad it's not just me! I played for ages moaning about no loot drops.

    There is a key bind... Not sure which it is to show all loot names, all except junk loot, (white) or no names at all. Not sure if it's off as default or if I fat fingered it.

    So you can turn it on to see your loot.

    I want to say it is z or X on the keyboard but it's a wild guess.

    Ahh ok this sounds like what I'm after. I'll see if that can translate to a controller button :)

    Thanks

    Please look up a build online that can get you through the game. I did my own thing and the difficulty spike at the end is ridiculous so I never finished it. :(

    Thanks!

    I'm trying to be as blind as possible to see how it goes. I did Google and find you can re-spend your skill points for a small fee which could be useful.

    So far it's going ok, I'm dual wielding as a warfare class and have selected Dream as my second class. About level 12 now just in Delphi (or something like that)

    Holds up well really. Though so far I only really have one move, just added another so until now it's just been holding one button in combat

    My main gripe really is just the UI scale when playing at higher resolutions on the TV. Literally can't read the text unless I play at 1080p with large HUD selected. That's fine but would be nice to run a sharper resolution but keep the HUD the same as I have it now

    I really enjoyed Titan Quest back in the day, I think it still stands up pretty well as a lightweight ARPG. You do end up using more skills as you get higher level but there are some pretty OP combinations, especially when you get some of the rarer items in the higher tiers. I remember I had a dual wielding Conqueror with the war standard thing that just melted everything.
