Not going to happen. Just play D2/Grim dawn/Torchlight 2/ Van helsing/ whatever.

Both systems are good.

Exactly the same here, I think it was just way too boring the first time around because of the lack of content and skills/spells. But now it's one of my favorite games on PC, love the setting as well.

At least tell me you played fallout 1 after.

Speaking of Fallout, I saved at the fight with The Master. All I have is 200 Small Guns and tbe Combat Shotgun (which carried me to hell and back before). Is it possible to beat the Master with this shit or am I just fucked?

There are many interchangeable passive clusters and keystones for most builds though. For example someone might choose to sacrifice passive points elsewhere to get an extra curse.

EVERY ARPG is minmaxing you numbskull.

That still doesn't excuse the fact that the game is built on min-maxing no matter what people may think.

Pic related.

I rented it from Gamefly when it first came out and couldn't stand the game. I only got a couple hours in but sent it back pretty much the same day.

A few years later I was looking for a game to play and websites kept putting it in the top 10 games on the Xbox 360. I bought it used for like $8 and fell in love with the game, just in time for Mass Effect 2.

I should go replay it at some point.

Mfw you can't play Helltooth WD because the game can't calculate the high amount of dots thus rendering the class unplayable. D3 was, and still is shit.

>>323905314
this to be honest family

>>323903652
To be fair, if you played POE when it first hit the beta it felt like an unfinished piece of shit.

I'm considering trying it again. Should I?

It's fun, but way too easy. Even on hardcore you only ever die due to some bullshit one-hit kill from a boss ability.

There are areas that have 100% spawn rate for stone circles.
>>
>>323905604
Yes it's a lot more polished game now. I suggest you cyclone marauder (follow the guide on the forums) if you are playing for the 1st time and want to be handheld the 1st time you play it.

That would be Dark Souls for me, can't say I hate it but I just stopped and never cared enough to get back.

I finished PoE act 1-4 in 2 nights without dying and people are calling this game hardcore...

It's a Diablo 2 clone, of course it's not hard until the final difficulty.

You finished normal, you didn't beat the game.

By final difficulty I meant maps.
And by maps I mean chiselled and exalted maps.
And by that I mean chiselled and exalted maps with sick ass rolls and broken bosses /oos ALT+F4.

This

Really didn't like the setting at all - I was mainly used to these typical medieval fantasy settings and the fallout setting with robots and lasers and plasma guns n shit bored the hell out of me

glad I gave it another chance
>>
>>323905604
just wait for ascendancy update which is supposed to be released Early 2016
>>
>>323905304
I loved Act 1, slowly lost my interest after that
>>
>>323905886
I remember I played Marauder when I first tried it because I wanted to be Conan. Then I learned all of your abilities come from gems and not yourself... It's a mild turn-off at best though. I got used to that pretty quick.

>>323905757
I found it a bit difficult when I started, but then again I've literally never played an ARTS in my life before this so I probably fucked up in every way imaginable. I remember quitting because I was told to go south and look for some place in the jungle and it just wasn't there. I was walking around for hours trying to find where the fuck I was supposed to go and just uninstalled.

>>323908214
Meh, might as well. What does it add?
>>
>>323903986
So much this. I remember forcing myself through the first hour or so because I didn't have anything else. 3 hours later I couldn't stop absorving that DANK AND KUSH atmosphere
>>
>>323908759
Subclasses, primarily. A few skills, more uniques, challenge leagues.
>>
>>323908214
>Early 2016
It's early 2016 now. Shouldn't we have a more specific announcement by now?

>>323909340
Will they change the tree again?

>>323905304
>play D:OS
>get into combat with a billion enemies
>OH MY GOD THIS IS TAKING FOREVER WHAT THE FUCK THIS SUCKS
>drop the game right there
about 10 hours for me, it was fun and all but running into a shitload of enemies at once was so fucking tedious
>>
>>323909448
I believe so.
>>323909354
Pretty sure it's in February.
>>
>>323909340
>Sub-classes
I'm not quite sure what that implies. Is your class not simply what determines your starting point on the sphere grid?
>>
>>323910696
Apparently each class will also get one of 3 separate micro-grids which use ascendancy points instead of normal passives.
>>
>>323910696
It is, but they're adding a choice of 3 smaller skill trees for each character that have a lot of other choices in them. The exception is Scion, who only has one tree, but they've been super minor on the details for hers.
>>
Will they make Scion's starting nodes not shit? Right now it's pretty much always better to start with another class and just grab some shit from Scion's area.
>>
>>323911172
That's not true at all, the sockets really are that good. Scion start is totally legit for a lot of builds.
