These are very entertaining vids either way, as I have always found mercs to be so so powerful and interesting. This being said, I would prefer normal speed and in-game sounds.

However you decide to make these though, keep it up, and i'll keep watching.

Thanks for the input Heathen.

I tried it that way in the beginning, but I couldn't get the software to record the in-game sound. What do you use when recording videos for your Grim Dawn mod? They always seem to turn out well.

Bandicam should work just fine. OBS as well.

Lightning Rogue video posted.

A bit slower, but she did well enough.

This time, the video was uploaded at normal speed using in-game sound (now that I can). If people like these videos better this way, then I'll do the rest like this. It's certainly less work for me. :)

h/t Heathen for the suggestion, LHawkins1 for the links, and Somnus for help setting up OBS.

How much total spell damage and pierce is your rogue merc looking at for each setup? Dunno what your buff bonuses and gear might give, etc, otherwise I'd add up the gear myself from the beginning of the videos. For as many procs that go off, she should be doing pretty well with some stacked spell.

Regardless, still nice work.

I'd like to see a pure physical one at some point with Deadfall, a Crafted bow with shower of rocks on kill, high physical damage, and Zakarum Stoning Jewels, if you're able to collect everything.

It varies, but generally around 200% spell damage and close to -100% pierce, but things definitely need tweaking. I listed the tallies at the bottom of each spoiler tag as best I could figure.

Sure thing. I'll work on that after the Rainbow setup. Gotta do some farming to fill in the gear gaps before the next round of trials anyway.

I had a Ranger merc which stacked Spike Nova procs, and had some ridiculous full screen clearing speed. Great proc for her, especially since her Uber skill grants her Spike Novas. I would definitely recommend a similar build for physical Rogue.

Tri-Elemental Rogue video posted.

Not as good as I had hoped, but still better than I expected.

A little slow and not much eye-candy in this one, so it may be kinda boring.

I love The Ranger merc, and feels she ultimately has higher potential than Priestess, but if you could theorycraft up a build for Priestess and make a video, I would be incredibly intrigued.
