There's no downside of playing a bit the final few days of 2.6, but waiting for 3.0 is entirely fine too

I followed his 2.6 guide through the Act 8 beta and it went incredibly well. Highly recommend going the soul mantle + double kikazaru route as soon as you can equip soul mantle, getting level 20 spell totem at level 49 effectively quadruples your dps.

Thanks for the assurance!

Don't most people play the challenge leagues, and those are rotating out on launch? I was playing for a bit but now I am considering waiting for the new league to show up and then restart.

That they do, but if you haven't played in forever you might as well dick around to remember the pedals. Nothing will just transfer to the next league.

Is there a reason not to keep using my custom filter from last season? Like, new items won't be invisible to me?

You'll probably want to update it for the Harbinger currency items and unique shards.

I've never tried playing a support character or really socialising at all beyond trading and guild chat, so I might try something like this myself. Have you got a guide you're following at all?


Also, RF totems while undeniably solid for a league opener, are horribly boring.

I hope 3.0 fixes all the various crashes I've been getting for a month now. It's impossible for me to do labyrinth, because I can't make it through it without a crash or disconnect.

Not as strong as you'd expect.

I've been vaguely playing through Cruel in the last few days, and getting the Lord's Labyrinth together. I should try to finish beforehand to make sure I get those Ascendancy points. After the Big Change there's no telling what will happen. You'd say I'm in the dull part of my summoner; getting life and resistance nodes close by, with no power increases.

I'm honestly unsure whether the few curses I'm throwing in addition(Mostly Assassin's Mark) are really helping. Then again, it's not like throwing Arc to trigger Elemental Equilibrium to help Hatred Aura is adding much.

Could probably throw it together with Rigwald's Curse and take all the claw nodes but good luck getting that in a league.

Also, RF totems while undeniably solid for a league opener, are horribly boring.

Just google 2.6 necro support and look over a few guides that come up. They are all pretty much the same thing. And it's good to know all the different choices you have for gearing, etc, so you can be flexible later if you change your mind based on outside influences - who you are playing with, what the prices on items ends up being, if you get a sick drop, etc etc.. Also, it helps you understand how the patch notes will influence your build, because people are not always that great at updating that poo poo right before a patch hits.

from old thread

2h or facebreaker for grandpa totems? 2h has the constant upgrading a weapon but has more gem slots plus a disfavor eventually. But facebreaker has a shield and no need for a weapon.

Biggest difference is whether you prefer to use Shield Charge or Leap Slam as a movement skill.

PARTY ALL NIGHT, EAT BRAINS ALL DAY



After being underwhelmed by Diablo 3, I'm trying to decide between picking this up again (got a minion master Witch ascended) or Marvel Heroes: Omega.

Probably spent the same amount of time in each. Marvel is more fun to look at but this has a better money model.

I read the whole thing. Good job on the new thread!

Thinking I will do my usual static strike max block gladiator to start the new league. Tanky and cheap, and a good way to farm currency for whenever I end up trying a low life cast on crit scorching bear trap chaos storm saboteur, or whatever

Static strike looks solid, but I am personally leaning more towards sunder with those sweet new gems.

RT gladiator/berserker/jugg/raider sunder. That is my safe recommendation for the new league. That may change fast when patch notes arrive.

It's almost impossible to die to volatile in 3.0 if you're paying attention. It creates an orb which starts chasing you after a windup time and will explode after a short but significant fuse time if it reaches you. Even if you let it get to you you can still survive.

challenges for harbinger officially announced

The "complete the following encounters" is pretty neat, and overall it doesn't seem like there's too much bullshit in the way of getting 36 challenges done.

e2. also you can hide completed challenges finally!

This is the better game by a million miles if you can learn to understand how and why builds work, or at least be willing to slavishly copy other people's work from the forums

that and you have to learn to deal with poe.trade, I'm guessing they're not changing trades or the economy in any real way in the expansion so yeah that'll be fun
