Mod is still under development. Expect a lot new things, changes/updates.

Grim Dawn is characterized for being slow paced when it comes to clear maps. Since I'm trying to make it more like Path of Exile which the clear speed can be really high depending on your choices, you can expect that this mod be also that way.

Any suggestions/ideas to improve the mod are welcome.
