    I'd play it if solo play was viable and you could gradually upgrade your gear with hundreds of hours of grinding, like during harvest.
    But the chaos team keeps removing player power from the skill tree and puts it in items/mods that have 1 in 10 million droprate and solo characters are effectively capped at like 10% of the power of tradeleage characters 1 week after release thanks to botfarms.

    I mean what ARPG is there currently on the market worth playing?
    D4 is Diablo 3 II
    Grim Dawn is Diablo 2 II
    Wolcen is dead
    Torchlight Infinite is freemium p2w mobile gacha
    Diablo 2 Ressurected is being handled by a group of chuckle fucks
    Sacred, TQ, Diablo 2, Path of Diablo and MedianXL have overstayed their welcome. They're great games but fuck, I can't keep playing the same game for so decades.
    Last Epoch is in dev hell
    Undecemeber is a solid game burdened by Korean MTX practices
    PoE has a solid game, but the economy focus combined with Chris's """"vision""""" when it comes to balancing sours the entire experience.

      All of the ones you listed + several others.
      arpg were not created as some kind of mmo and are not meant to be played for very long periods of time.
      I mean, diablo 2 literally had no endgame.
      It's cancer started by diablo 3 and poe.
      >I can't keep playing the same game for so decades.
      Poe came out in 2013. I doubt you've got bored with all these games but fine with poe for 10 years.

        It was so refreshing to experience that again in D2R after years of endgame arpgs.

        A game that has an actual end and doesn't carrot on a stick you for another +100hrs after you finished it. What do you know!

      Most people will literally advise you to choose pre-made build.
      It's also literally like playing russian roulette with 5 loaded rounds. You can make a good build by yourself but that's beyond most regular players.

        Not really? If you know the basics of what you need for a successful build you can make something work. I don't think just anything can be capable of doing something like the uber bosses, but you'll be able to beat 90% of the end game and the end game bosses aside from that.

          Well, if you've played for a couple of thousand hours, yeah. Like I said, it's too much for most players.
          Like, a lot of people drop poe after trying to create their build after using pre-made ones or vice versa.

        You are 100% correct. The other anons are just denying it because they are experienced enough by now to realize that you *CAN* make a good build yourself but new players should absolutely not do anything like that.

          It didn't take me nearly that long to make a build on my own. The very first character I ran was a Bane/Cold Snap self made Occultist. It wasn't spectacular but it was good enough to kill juiced Metamorphs.

          I suppose it helps to have a lot of ARPG experience.

                Yeah if you want 6 T1s obviously. You can SSF farm for like 40 hours and do all the non uber bosses. Trickier in HCSSF of course.

    I can't imagine playing this game at all. Maybe if you'd been around since the start, I could see still being into it. But for a new person trying to play this game, forget about it. It's barely even an RPG with all of the build guides you have to follow to get started. I thought about giving it a go but stopped before I even started when I saw all of the research that goes into making a viable character. I'm just gonna hold out for D4.

        GGG knows this. And they don't care.

        They know the casul will try the game and quit. They don't care, they don't want that player. They want the autist who sees and understands there's "depth" in the game. And that they'll spend 10's to 100's of hours exploring it. Buying stash tabs and whatever conveniences to do so.

        They tried for a bit to make the game more beginner friendly themselves(tutorials, etc).

        But then the community exploded, and did the work for them.
        >streamers
        >youtube
        >path of building
        >trade sites(leading into official trade site, and creation of price tracking)

        This completely removed the mystery and guesswork. Before POE even experienced people didn't 100% understand what the fuck was going on. Now even a nitwit can just copy paste a build and buy all the necessary gear in an instant.

        While in the old days guides expected you to be on a 5L for a long time, with a 6L being a bonus/endgame goal.

          6l was almost unheard until around 3.1.
          getting past lvl 80 was insanely hard.
          finding supports that fit your build was was rough and there was no PoB to tell you if they were actually helping your build.
