        that was same for me, I played the campaign 3 time 3 different leagues and stopped at maps. every league from then I play each one more and more. I think it has a lot to do with the build you play. Make sure you play meta, off meta in the game is hard to pull off and typically isn't fun anyways.

        I think you've just lost the immediate goal and get bored. I had this happen to me when I first played PoE. Try to complete your atlas (all the maps you have in the league). Difficulty ramps up fast and you need to keep upgrading your chars. After that you can get into late game bosses if you want. But most important of all you should play a build you enjoy.

        The crafting system is like playing the lottery with high runes. And the trading is dominated by people who legally dupe great items they've managed to craft. The richest players aren't the ones clearing the maps, but rather just sell dupes.

            You have no idea how bullshit the currencies in this game are.

            So if you've played Diablo 2, a Chaos Orb is your basic high rune. It doesn't take too long to find them if you know what you're doing (e.g. Cows in Hell).

            So let's look at some exchange rates for useful items.

            1 Exalted Orb = 26.3 Chaos Orbs

            1 Sacred Orb = 122.1 Chaos Orbs

            1 Divine Orb = 244.2 Chaos Orbs

            1 Mirror of Kalandra = 244,000 Chaos Orbs

            There was a reddit thread about someone creating a top tier staff using 230 Exalted Orbs.

            https://www.reddit.com/r/pathofexile/comments/n6g2n0/the_story_of_a_noob_crafting_a_the_best_minion/

            So they effectively spent over 6,000 high runes on creating this item.

            For reference, if your Diablo 2 Resurrected stash contained nothing but high runes occupying every single slot that would be 400 high runes.

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Yes, Empyrion is probably one of the top public-facing streamers when it comes to running a farming/crafting group. He has a large team of players who make tons and tons of currency through group play (group farming, crafting, and selling), and usually uses the currency generated from that along with people just giving him shit for fun, in order to do huge crafting projects or dumb things like wasting tons of expensive items for fun.

                Usually his thing is that he will pick an absurd idea that hasn't been done before, like trying to make a character with the highest Energy Shield possible, and then spends a good chunk of his league working with teams to spend tons and tons and tons of currency making those items, usually for fun but also for stream content and Youtube stuff.

                And then the league resets and they do it all over again.

                In other words, this is not something a normal player will be able to do?

                Depending on how you define "normal" player, but that is correct.

                Just to put things into perspective: There's probably 240-250 Headhunters in that image and maybe 35ish Magebloods. So value-wise, about 12,000 Divine Orbs worth of items in that tab (because the league is over and these are lower prices, and most people have finished playing and are getting rid of stuff they don't care about since it all gets dumped to Standard).

                The average or "normal" player, even if you strip out all of the ones who never really make it past white maps, probably won't ever have more than MAYBE 8 to 10 Divine Orbs in raw currency or sellable items at any given point maybe 20 at the higher end. Lots of players will have way, way more, but the "normal" player doesn't have much at all because they're not farming and putting effort into trading.

                I remember him saying he deserved streamer priority.

                I don't know what that means, but also I never said Empyrion was a good person.

    I came into PoE mid Crucible league and was floored by how interesting and fun the various mechanics were. Harvest and Blight were among my top choices, never really caught onto the Legion/Deli hype or fully grasped the Syndicate system where you could execute/free prisoners.

    I didn’t do a lot of personal experimentation, usually followed a build guide but crafting was just too high a hurdle. I never could get items just the way I wanted so I prefer the simplicity of D4 more these days. I still can’t believe I missed out on such a good f2p games for so long.

        You likely need to play hardcore to get that so your mileage will vary. For me I’m casual as frick and even following guides you can’t really frick up like Paelstron or Subtractem I seem to fizzle in the middle of maps. Not killed many of the bosses let alone sniffed Uber’s, if this season is playable for my buddy on ps4 may give I may give it a whirl. Last league dropped his performance to unplayable which was unfortunate, and it was much more prone to crashing.

        PoE 2 always struck me as an oddity after they showed it in action. Why they went out of the way to make a game very much the opposite of the one that made them popular is a mystery to me. They want combat slower and more methodical with dodging like where was the outcry for this. Certainly not on their forums, it’s no wonder they went back on rolling the games into each other because they appeal to pretty different play styles.

          The combat gets better when you progress the game, you can watch closed beta footage and the feeling that you are playing Poe is still there, but their creep and boss respawn mechanics is moronic.

          PoE2 is just what Blizzard tried to make Diablo. My GUESS is that despite what they outwardly say about what it is meant to be, the truth is that when the rest of the industry was shifting in that direction and PoE was off doing their own thing, GGG decided they also needed an ARPG that was slower, clunkier, and made for the casual audience. When Diablo 4 came out (and I'm not saying D4 pushed major development of PoE2, just that it was a big comparing point), a good chunk of people realized it sucked and as a result tried PoE1. A good number stayed, but a lot probably bounced off of it because it was too hard, too complex, or too different. PoE2 is meant for those people. It's meant for people that are impressed by flashy animations and "Wow I can turn into a bear lol!" Diablo-type players.

          I checked out of PoE2 a long time ago. I don't WANT a game where I have to dodge-roll and where I'm constantly slamming potions in the campaign because being hit at all is a punishment. I don't want attack combos and class-specific gear and attacks that are slow as frick and balanced around you needing to slow and stun and run away from basic campaign-level mobs.

          I want to blast shit, I want to watch enemies explode, I want to push skills to absurd limits and have the game be able to create enough enemies to test those limits. Imagine a normal endgame, juiced PoE1 map, but now it's based around having to dodge-roll so you don't get hit. Motherfricker that would be the worst shit ever. Fricking roll spamming and taking a full minute on every single pack of mobs.

    It’s a game that really forces on to play the meta for their starting class but that meta changes every few months, so you gotta restart and reroll constantly.
    It gets notoriety for being a hardcore diablo clone, but it’s more that everything except meta builds are total trash, in spite of luring people in with its otherwise neat passive skill web and ability customization; it has the best potential for build freedom, yet is ironically the worst of these cookie clicker type of games to play for it. At least the campaign can be fun, and the aesthetics are nice aside from every armor set never having pants for some reason.

      There are several armor models that have pants. Multiple chainmails, vaal regalia, assassin's garb. Please play the game next time before you start posting dumb shit.

    Can't wait for Tencent to paywall the shit out of this game. $20 League-passes, pay-to-win gatcha bullshit, etc. The streamers that've dedicated their lives to this game are going to collapse.

        PoE2 is going to be paywalled, and then that's going to bleed into PoE.

        This isn't a game run by enthusiasts anymore. If you want that then jump onto Last Epoch.
