I am more interested in getting some cool new skills than whatever the league mechanic is.

Based on what they do to the Elementalist ignite node will determine if I league start an ignite based character or not.

If they left it alone, I'm doing Archmage/MoM Fireball.

so I know chaos slinger peters out in red maps, but converting it to ed/contagion should be easy enough right? my first ever character was ed/cont and I remember boss damage being poo poo, but I was probably doing a bunch of stuff wrong. Is it tolerable?

Yes, that is the more comfy build for ED/C, to start as slinger then go self-cast.

Yeah, I gets down with the homies



Started thinking about builds, even though it's a bit a bit early. I didn't really get to Maven and Uncharted Realms last league, so I want to league start with something that can scale really well into the endgame. Okay map clear. Tanky. Good at bossing. Thinking about Lacerate gladiator or maybe flamewall-slinger elementalist.

Anyone got other suggestions while I'm testing builds? Extra cool if elementalist golem shell.

What are some good raider builds for league starting?

Chieftain was fun and tanky but it'd be nice to be zoomy again.

Ranger has really poop gem availability at start. Caustic does alright getting you to the gem vendor when you can pivot to whatever.

i've seen some people toying with deadeye icicle mines as a starter. if you are not dead-set on raider, might be worth looking into

New trailer is dope. The new environments they're showing look cool. The new camera angle is good, although it's hard to tell what's in-game and what's just trailer footage. They said they're adjusting it, so any change is good there.

Seeing 5 flasks still makes me sad, heh.

If I ever play a crossbow build it better not require swapping ammo all the time because I will get very weary of hearing what bolts I'm using every time

One sec, did the player automatically pick up currency? an armor currency just be run over and heard the pick up noise.

edit: guess not. it sure sounded like it.

I've been on an ARPG kick since Ritual. After I got done with it, I played Grim Dawn for the first time, but got bored before I fully finished the campaign (its expacs add a lot of time). Then I've played a little D3, because it's fun for a (very) short time, and it's been like...4 years or more.

The grass is always greener, but it's nice to get perspective on what POE does well and what it doesn't.

It's nice having engines that run smooth. POE, and esp POE2, definitely look better, but it's not worth it when you have to turn that poo poo off and turn off combat sounds to try to get stability. Maybe next league will be better.

It's nice not having to deal with external loot filters (built-in for Grim Dawn, and in D3, NO loot filters needed at all). Last Epoch's loot filters look super nice too (not that I've played it). I know they're trying to un-gently caress loot.

The lack of constant clicking to pick up tedious loot is sooo nice in other games. POE really needs to enable vaccuum loot for currency / scrolls / etc. They need to give up that poo poo. No one will ever stop playing POE because "oh I missed picking up tedious stuff".

But those other games also showed where POE loving trounces everyone else. POE's endgame is so drat good and deep. The whole atlas progression system is huge, plus watchstones. Then you have a lot of various boss fights you can work towards too.

I also still quite like POE's campaign, and this POE2 campaign looks even better.

In short, POE please fix your loot, stop grognarding about tedium, fix your tech issues, because hot drat I am super pumped for POE2 and it makes me sad it's so far away.

(But please stop having her announce her bolt every 2 seconds. ARMOR FROST BOLTS! INCENDIARY BOLTS!)
