Edit your GD character quickly from the commandline!

gd-edit is a handy little utility that lets you modify your Grim Dawn characters however you like! Be warned though that this is a commandline utility. If working with commandline programs seem like a relic of the past for you, you may also want to consider using GD stash.


This little program needs Java 8 to run. To get your very own copy, visit

Then, grab a copy of the editor for your platform:

Just double click the downloaded exe and you're ready to go!

Setting up

If you're running the steam version GD, the program should hopefully find your installation and be ready to go right out of the box.

If you're not running the steam version, or if you have GD installed in some super secret custom path, then you'll need to help the program find your game installation and save directory.

In those cases, please run the following commands the first time you fire up the editor:

gamedir "long path to game installation directory here"
savedir "long path to save game directory here"


The directory paths should placed inside double quotes. Otherwise, the program will stop processing the path when it encounters the first 'space' character in the path!
