i think it's real good this season but i only just got to yellow maps and i mindlessly follow youtuber builds because i don't wanna make spreadsheets for the game

ice traps seems to have a reliable survivability with enough evasion and % to freeze but it's my second season playing so i don't know poo poo really i guess.

it was cool being able to finance some decent gear because one of the league npcs starts stocking chaos orbs in like, the first act or something stupid early

i play it every now and then, op. don't really have much to say about it as i just play through the campaign and quit when i get to the endgame grindfest. i like it when the guy says "this world is an illusion, exile!" and reveals himself to be god, who you proceed to kill in act three out of five

it's pretty cool that killing god and then unfucking the world because you killed god is considered the tutorial of the game imo

I can't tell if I just don't like these style of games anymore or if they're just not very good to begin with. The last diablolike I enjoyed was Torchlight 2, and even then once I hit the desert I usually stop playing. I may have finally kicked my lootlust demon.

honestly feel the same way, but some games of a similar vein do scratch that itch, like The Ascent, which is like the best game this year for me so far

It's the only good ARPG which really says a lot about the state of the genre. I have fun with it but at this point it's basically impossible to get into. And for some reason they balance it like an MMO or shooter instead of a single player game, which is what it is.

I like these kinds of games because I get a Indiana Jones style archaeologist feel from finding the epic ancient primal loot or w/e and just perhaps it could help me become godlike. Cheers OP.

I always go into them hoping they will be like that but invariably itís instead hours of picking up rusty swords and enchanted leather pants with slightly different numbers beside their names and I get bored and quit

It sucks because poe has outstanding atmosphere and solid gameplay but otherwise caters exclusively to min/maxers who love spreadsheets and scripts and poo poo. I guess you have to do that stuff to keep the whales engaged

I ignored that game until right after it came out and I learned that 1. there's no procedural generation and 2. the "loot" isn't random at all, there's just a few dozen different weapons/armor items that you're supposed to keep and upgrade for different situations.

I thought I craved hacknslash gameplay, but I bounced right off Torchlight 2 anyhow when I tried it. I think what I really want is to play Diablo 2 again for the first time.

i don't particularly care for the ascendency trials, and i hope they get rid of they aren't planning any isometric platforming sections for poe2

really like when i hear that currency item drop sound and my brain gives me a sweet dopamine hit though

If you're not striving to improve, you'll end up going backwards.

The labyrinth is really bad and is thankfully going away forever in poe2. On the other hand when you have a strong build it feels good to instantly crush it, as I did tonight with my lightning trapper

i'm using an ice trapper. what really fucks me up are the sections where i can't just cheese through it with movement skills because there's like an enemies take damage when using movement skills thing stacked on a totem of drought or whatever and i'm just like 'gently caress it, i don't need to see sirus anyway i guess'

You should be able to hit them with your traps from extreme range, which goes through the proximity shield some of them have. And if you have flask nodes you can just sip your health flask and blaze through. They don't do enough damage to kill you outright
