      Ngl I played D3's season 2 and the mechanic is everything a PoE mechanic should be. A portal in your map with a series of maps with increasing difficulty and rewards with a larger reward at the end. Actually drops good gear, good to do while levelling and not a full blown side activity just something that complements the gameplay.

      PoEs leagues fricking suck because they're constantly trying to make a mini-game in the game and half of the time they're so obtuse and unrewarding that no one even bothers with them until endgame and for some leagues you might as well ignore them altogether. PoE needs to go back to Blight or Ritual, something you find in a map thats actually worth doing. No I dont want to play your gay little autobattler I want to kill monsters and get loot.

      You must have raped your dopamine receptors beyond recognition if you say something as moronic as that. PoE's good times are long in the past, and the recent couple of years have completely destroyed the game of all the soul it had remaining until then. Fricking hell, you sunk cost homosexuals disgust me to no end. You've come to the game in the last three, or maybe four years to PoE, at best, and think that it's even remotely good in its current state. Bet you blew all your time and lifesaving on it in the timespan. Spare your parents the embarrassment of having an online casino addicted son, and have a nice day right now, hunchback.

    I started POE some months ago and it's just fun (so far). The bosses are cool, the items/gems system is interesting.
    It's free, you don't need to play 3000 hours uber hardocore content.

      I’ve played a significant amount and I still almost never bother with the ubers.
      I just enjoy almost any other activity more, they’re only really "worth it" if you’re grinding them for some rare drop.

      I was huffing that copium for a while, as well, but EHG just don't have the chops for game development. Their progress is so slow despite the genre being simple to develop for, and now they're talking about releasing the game when it's still blatantly not finished?

    Their competition is modern Blizzard games (which are beyond dogshit) and smaller games that are good but don't scratch the same itch, like Grim Dawn, Titan Quest, etc.

        They added a unique belt Ceinture of Benevolence in 3.21. It originally had the modifier “Flasks you Use apply to Linked Targets”. Streamer joined a random in their menagerie, they used a link skill and a combination of unique flasks that kills you.

        The belt now only applies non-unique utility flasks to linked targets

    I've made a new build every league, funded it using casual play over a week or two (like never more than two hours of gameplay per day) and always 38/40'd each league. I use either a different farming method each time or primarily farm the league mechanic.

    I legitimately don't understand why people have such a hard time with this game.

            spec expedition, craft with rog, farm essences, learn how to block mods, learn where div cards drop if you need hyper specific items or easy bases, and learn all the batshit ways you can craft a single item.

            Then you just do whatever is required to get your next piece of gear.
            Do you need random generic rares? Go expedition and essence. (rog crafting + tujen for currency for bench crafting)
            Do you need base items? Go run whatever drops them. Be it heist, or guardian maps or hell, even kirac missions.
            The point of SSF is to be able to recognize what item you need, and then find the best way to obtain it.
            If you want a good minion wand, running maps is pointless. Spec into delve, and get some 4 sockets+fossils. It does not take long and its a 1/12 chance to get a decent +2 minion wand. Rog can also get you +2 minion helmets quite often.
            Thats just an example. Don't play SSF if you need someone to tell you what to do, you should find it fun to figure it out yourself.

        I just don't particularly enjoy the rat race and trading experience.
        If the game had better drop rates and no trading at all I would probably have more fun.

        • 3 months ago
          Anonymous

          while i do agree that unique drop rates are aids and i think div cards should be MORE target farmable, poe is a game that is built around rare items, the best items in the game are rare items, and farming currency to craft has literally never been easier, crafting is also 100x more deterministic than it's ever been. again i don't think the itemization in poe is bad, it's just the barrier to entry with how weak the vast majority of gems are is the real problem.

    HIGH customization with near infinite builds if you know how to do it.

    More content than any arpg out there, highly endgame focused but the campaign is still a good run if you haven't done it.

      Builds are illusion of choice. Everything plays the same. You just play around different keywords to build your damage. It's like you play some normie fps where despite it having 20+ guns they all fill the same role.

            says is on point. You are reducing down a game to suit your argument, no point in debating frick all with you. For you basketball and football are the same, since 2 teams are trying to get a ball into a goal to score points.

              I am not reducing the argument anywhere. It's you who said that builds are the defining factor of the game. But after we go below the surface turns out that it doesn't change how the game plays no matter if you're throwing fireballs, knives, flamestrikes or cleaving. If you want to expand your argument be my guest because I really fail to see what's so engaging in a game like this. I tried a good 400 hours because of socialization but I just don't get it.

    its the best if you just want to go through campaign and beat a few maps. Almost every other arpg i played is super easy/boring and i dont care if the endgame is better in them if it takes 4-5 hours to get to it.
    Lost ark for example i played for over an hour and used health potions like 1 time vs 1 boss and i never felt like i was in danger i was just right clicking mobs then inspecting loot and theory crafting builds, but builds for what? endgame after like 5-10 hours? and in the meantime im playing loot piniata clicker with no sense of danger or character progression because i 1shot everything.

    Diablo 4 got this right but it has mmo style quests and shitty story elements that ruin it.

    Sunk cost fallacy. It takes you 1000 hours to even begin to understand the complex mechanics of the game and by that point you've already bought a bunch of tabs and invested all your free time on it. Also the dopamine hits from rare drops and the rush of watching entire screens of enemies die will eventually fry your brain.
