I don't use either and you're kinda proving my point. It's fucking awful that the playerbase considers those requirements to play the game. Just another example of developer laziness. When do we start holding GGG accountable for how primitive the game still is? When did they say there would be a trade update, like four years ago? We still don't have leaderboards in game. Don't even get me started on how cobbled together the entire race league shit is. They have servers all over the world now and a giant office with tons of employees. What's the excuse now? The technology isn't there yet?
what exactly is bitching gonna do about it
we've been bitching for years and yet here we are
>Are there any plans to make trading easier without needing to rely on third-party websites and programs?
There are several stages to our trading improvements. We're hoping (but not promising) to deploy the first stage alongside Ascendancy in March. The goal of this stage is that searches on community tools like poe.trade are more accurate and show player online status perfectly. We'll go into more detail as soon as things are locked down. Thanks for your patience!
>what exactly is bitching gonna do about it
Hey retard that's how people start talking about things that gets developers to listen. Deny it all you want but do you think desync would have ever been fixed if not for people bitching about it round the clock? No, if everyone would have swallowed GGG's philosophy whole, they'd have no reason to do anything about it in fact they'd think it would be a mistake to change anything.
Sending them an email ain't gonna do shit either that will just keep things private and they probably won't even read it if they do they can easily ignore it because they can just discuss it internally and say nah without a bunch of pissed off people to answer to.
Breh, I read your garbage post. They've been saying there would be trade improvements for YEARS you dumb motherfucker and saying that they're going to fix online status MAYBE next league is literally WOW ITS FUCKING NOTHING.
Fuck this nigger game and the goddamn laggs. Second character I lose to fucking talisman freezes. I am done with this trashy league.
>lol dewd u dun play ranged peusun casta? 2 bad lmao XD
>maybe you shouldnt spawn talisman mobs
Damn, I can choose to not spawn them now? You realize that the game fucking laggs even if one Talisman mob simply shows up on the screen, right? And that it laggs another time a new mob picks up the very same Talisman again, right?
>mfw i play on a laptop and never died to load lag
buy some more stash tabs, goy. maybe then we'll work on it
Does anyone else pick up every white prophecy wand in the hopes of chancing a void battery one day?
Make a tab of Gavels. Q them all up to 20 and chance them all. You'll get nothing, and then you will sell each with a low tier map and get a chisel, which is better than nothing. At least you tried!
chance skyforth, LC, kaoms, shavs, taste of hate
if you wanna chance every good base you'll be picking up white items half the time you're mapping
pick 2-3 uniques that you want to chance and then only chance those
>thinking of chancing a Mjol
You can still run crit mjolner and run surgeons, it's just more expensive, but if you're dropping the currency on a proper mjolner build (AKA Buying Voll's Devotion) then you should be able to afford the rest
"Hardcore" players disgust me. I’m a Standard Challenge League player and I’m sick to death of you ignorant bastards. For starters, no, I will not post "guess rolls". I don’t see how any of you have the right to tell another player to get "naked", you dogs might see us new players as flesh for your pleasure but NOTHING gives you the right to bully someone just because you believe that you’re ‘stronger’ or ‘better’. You describe Standard players as ‘feces-eating crows’, quite frankly I’m enraged by this, if I ever heard you say this word in real life I would punch you so hard you’d be in a coma for the next month.
What gives you the right to think that you can tell us what to do? I will never be ordered around by a "hardcore" player. Actually I’m so passionate about this I managed to get this asshole guy suspended from reddit for making leagueist comments about me. Now he’s learnt his lesson, and you're next.
talisman, like the acendancy league next, are all temp leagues
there is no permanence to them, everything goes into standard/hc when they are over
if you want to never lose your shit, just play std/normal hc

>people think asscendency will be released in april
Im pretty sure Chris learned his lesson about posting dates with Awakening.
If its not ready by late March then it gets pushed to live in a buggy state, just like Awakening.
are you ready for ascendancy closed beta
>GGG is retarded, but theyre not that retarded.
Friendly reminder if you aren't actually capable of making your own build by taking a skill and method and applying basic math and all you can do is follow guides/streamers then you might actually be legit retarded.
I think Veil of the Night/Gluttony of Elements might become possible with Ascendancy.
If Shackles of the Wretched starts working with Blasphemy it would really smooth out the build.
Only question is what skill to use
Way, way too much work for too little gain. You can already make a support build that makes your allies all but unkillable without potentially dying instantly if you run out of souls
The point isnt to make a build thats better than current builds. The amount of hoops you have to jump through to get to working makes sure of that.
Its more just to create a working build with what is considered the most worthless unique in the game.
For what purpose?
It won't be better at anything than any other build, and it certainly won't be fun. Best case scenario, an interaction is released that makes it a potential thing, that will promptly be patched.
watching the first 10 build of the week videos makes me sad, because now if your build is unfortunate enough to be on one of those, that's the fuckin death knell man, your build is done.
have incentive do they have NOT to do that?
they still get coverage by gaming media, they still get streamer attention, they still get whales and big payers playing
so the unwashed poor like complain on the forums maybe and reddit? big deal, they can spin this into a "people being VERY exited over the new expansion" narrative. remember GGG mods their subreddit and their forums, and the mainstream media just assumes anything 4chan is chink cartoon porn and guy fawkes masks
Because its fun for me?
Im looking at a ~28-35 second Gluttony duration with a decent damage crit cold build. Its actually possible that it works okay in maps, but im not going to get my hopes up.
How is that objectively more fun in game
Lay than something like cyclone.
The idea is interesting sure, but practically it's probably not fun, maybe cool to try but yeah, probably not fun

Except it wasn't Normal.
And yeah, failed to Flame Dash when it was comin'.
Dungeons in this aren't Diablo 2 random, right? They just flip on an axis, don't they?
If thats the case, why cant I find the layouts for the dungeons so I can breeze through most of this shit?
Can't believe someone hasn't made that yet.
Also, are there mods for this game? I'm seeing some peoples items look way different on the ground.
some zones have several layouts but as far as i know none of them are truly random
lots of zones have 1 layout and if you go through each difficulty a couple times you'll probably figure it out
important for racing
As far as I know it's just all sorts of mixed up. And yeah, those were loot filters. You can check out the forums for some of the premades.
>lots of zones have 1 layout and if you go through each difficulty a couple times you'll probably figure it out
I use to play this game a few years ago, when act 2 was the final stage. I can't remember the maps at all for the life of me. I always thought they had 1 layout, so thats kind of interesting that some have more. I also lost my first account, which had like $50 worth of cosmetics, oh well.
>You can check out the forums for some of the premades.
Awesome, thanks, I'll look into it.

It's a good thing you don't believe in karma, otherwise you'd never win
Not exclusively. Most marauders gem in bhood magic for their main spell which usually requires low mana upkeep so their life regen beats it put then run heralds and other shit in their main mana pool for damage
2% mana leech isnt enough to justify running warlord's, people run warlords more for the endurance charge chance and the skightly conveninet life leech. Just figure out some other way to sustain your cyclone
No, there is no reason not to reserve mana because reserving mana gives you really efficient buffs. You could make a clear mind build, however it will probably somehow be suboptimal, though doable regardless.
but I said earlier my build is cyclone with CoC
and it needs the mana leech + life leech from warlords to sustain cost and hp, what's so difficult to understand?
heralds + CoH is only good for charge generation which is only a third of the use on warlords
literally no difference because both involve you alt tabbing out of the game until they kill everything on screen.
Fire if you want to have my synergy with searing bond, otherwise memeshock/shockmeme memetem

>mfw I can't get passed t6 maps 'cause drops
Yeah bitch. Surprisingly you can get one shot in this game.
>Level 21 Duelist
Vaal Flameblast because I haven't bothered to take it off, and replace it with the Vaal Molten Shell I put in my alternate set due to lacking strength. Vaal MS is pretty nice with BV, because it benefits from the increased duration, and AoE
My connection, FPS, and frame time does not like it when I start hitting a bunch of stuff with Blade Vortex while I have Gifts from Above equipped, but I enjoy pooping obnoxious gold ground effects behind me, so I put up with it.
I have no excuse for the Eternal, and Mana flask; I should have edit -- I mean, slotted in my two Tastes of Hate. Forgive me
What's wrong with Blade Vortex though? Pre-casting a bunch of stacks, and running through a mob is fun; Cybil's Paw, and Vaal Pact life leech keep usually keep me topped off, but I removed the former to try out Eclipse Solaris, and turned off the latter to try out hatred + herald of ice + dead hand talisman.
So ignoring this dumb sperg who shoops his health orbs, how DO people level quickly?
Is it just skipping all mobs but the magic ones, which give the most EXP? How many quicksilvers? Are there abilities you are supposed to pick up and use for the early game then drop later?
I want to learn how to speedrun through the slog of the early game.
>What's the difference between a lvl 68 T8 and a lvl 77 T8?
That question makes no sense, a map is always the same level and a "tier" always refers to that level.
Are you asking about Zana "maps" that use existing map tilesets at varying levels? Theses maps aren't 'tiered" and are just set to whatever level is appropirate for the mission or the area that the mission was found it and the mobs inside will be of that level.
Herald of Ash is NOT an aura, it only effects YOU and things that are you by extension (totems, traps, mines). Minions are not you but are (non-partied) allies.
the item level of the actual map item does nothing
the map level due to it's respective tier does
I am referring to the item level of the map.
So to determine the quality of a map, I just have to look at the tier and its implicit level that can be found on the wiki?
What are this cards, how do i use them and what do they do? It's aleready the 4th one i found and they are basically just sitting my bank.
Also are the EU servers shitting on themself right now? I logged on 4 different online games and my MS was around 40 stable but on PoE it keeps oscilating from 300 to 40 every second and it gets annoying.
How do rampage gloves interact with Animated Guardian? Would the guardian be able to get kill streaks?
Once you reach a full stack you may exchange them with an Act IV NPC for the item listed upon the card (In that instance "Pacifism")
WED wouldnt work with unarmed right?
i couldnt figure out a good way to scale big, there's two 80 dex static electricity spots which would be nice
but otherwise its just a bunch of crit from the tree and flat damage on some gear, and i guess hypothermia + aa as a sole 'more' support
kinda shitty how its panning out desu
>inb4 mors therefore it's irrelevant
He brings up legitimate points. I've had my suspicious on racing but I haven't raced in quite a while now.
tfw figuring out a build and you realize just how fucking boring all the skills are and decide to not play
and then the urge comes back the next day, and you realize the same thing again
i think i know this feel
i felt good about finally getting a coil and 5linking it and then i realized i spent all that currency on the most boring unique in the game
what #FunBuilds could i fund if i sell it

It's suffering. Before I caved in and started playing SC I never managed to get to mapping due to this shit.
Should I get the cast speed or spell damage when I'm playing Sire of Shards totem Arctic Breath?
it depends on the rest of your build
oh i somehow missed the totem part
i only take the first and maybe the second spell damage witch node. if you're going for freeze there is always ele damage around freeze nodes and for cast speed besides the really nice nodes i mostly get them on jewels.
as a totem build i favor hybrid life/es but if you're going all the way to bloodmagic then i guess you could try push for iw? going bloodmagic makes me think you might lack freeze chance though i guess a curse could solve that.
though i imagine hoi would be a great damage inc with all your freeze
drop the crit if you're not going crit
if you want to go crit you would have to drop bm i think and even now the bm doesn't look to worth
everything is low life, damage though cast speed is probably okay and you have all the nice aoe. i can only see bloodmagic being worth if you go heavy into iw which will give you a big life pool and free damage aswell but you already have a 5l setup
i don't know senpai i think you will struggle, too much of everything gives you nothing
Totems are essentially you.
If you have a buff, the totem has it. Like auras, totems don't gain auras because they are in range of the aura, they have it because YOU have it.
The only difference is you cannot get any on kill effects because they apply to the totem and they totem can't use/have them.
yeah iron will
i was thinking hoi would be nice with some free flat dmg and then you 20q it for global 15% inc on cold dmg. bm could be okay, you can get that unique jewel that gives like 60%spell damage i think
reposting my epic exile from yesterday

>watching ghuddas stream
>people are buying map clears and regular atziri clears
how fucking nice™ does your build have to be that you can't clear those maps with 6 portals at your disposal? fucking lmao
If you hate this game so much why do you keep playing it?
>having fun makes you a shitcrow XDDDD
So /poeg/ lets talk about build making.
Do you or even can you make your own build? I'm not talking about making some unique snowflake shit, just basic build making.
Can you/do you
>pick a skill
>pick a method
>pick defensive type
>apply idea to passive tree
>level and succeed with the build
In all honesty, I don't believe you are a good player until you can successfully do this with skills you haven't used/aren't very familiar with time and time again.
i usually just start with a skeleton where i get all the life nodes, then get damage for whatever ill be using, then whichever defense is most convenient. then mana/life leech
okay so, I wanted to do osme maps AND get fragments/vaal gems. A friend told me to vaal twinned museum since bosses drops fragments if corrupted.
Is that the way to go? Seems fun at least.
do you see the twinned mod on that map
Can you feasibly do a build that involves ES like Hybrid or CI as a self sound player? I hoped with changes to ES it would be possible, but it still seems like such a shit mechanic and just as gear dependent.
What are you guys going to do until ascendancy comes out?
You used to be able to automate endurance charge generation and immortal call with CWDT, but now you can't. You have to generate the charges with something else and then cast immortal call manually or with CWDT. Blasphemy with warlords mark is an easy way to get the charges though.
Daresso Defiance makes it so that you can use the old school 'automated' CWDT + IC + ID setup
I fucking love this armor and work it into every build I possibly can because of this.
It's stupidly strong.
im planning to run this for a VB iw marauder
why do you think its bad, poeg?
poeurl doesnt work at all on my browser (palemoon) senpai.
your pathing is shit, you could spare a few points
you need mana to sustain it, deep thoughts and righteous decree should be enough
you need dexterity on tree
your damage might be shit
you'll have trouble with physical reflect without vaal pact
>you could spare a few points
went to 2x curse and severeignty because of warlords
>dex on tree
i plan to solve that on gear. if i cant, like you said i still have 70 dex near to grab with some modifications
yeah thats my main concern. we'll see
im hoping my second curse, enfeeble can help with that, coupled with almost 4% life regen and some armor and leech. but its a wait and see kind of thing
traveling from marauder to outside and from outside to templar, I remade your tree and posted a poeurl, if you can't see it tell me
>went to 2x curse and severeignty because of warlords
the problem is that you won't probably cast in the middle of a pack, you'd rather prepare beforehand and then go in when the blades are up and maybe then cast some more but you'll have trouble precasting the blades and will most definetely need to gulp it up
>i plan to solve that on gear. if i cant, like you said i still have 70 dex near to grab with some modifications
or you could place a carefull planning near ele equilibrium spot
>im hoping my second curse, enfeeble can help with that, coupled with almost 4% life regen and some armor and leech. but its a wait and see kind of thing
enfeeble doesn't do shit vs reflect since it's your damage
if you could invest in armor though it might be good since they're a lot of small hits
planned for level 100 but you can cut some shit to run it early
for example I would honestly cut the way to the second duration cluster as it's a considerable point investment which is not that worth it imo
I've got 12k dps but there's just too many, I'd need to stay still for 2 seconds and in that time 3/4 of my life is simply gone from the bosses, not to mention billion cocks that spawned from the other side.
I ragequit after dying and I don't think I'll be playing anymore today. Or anytime soon if this is all I can hope for. I never had any problems just flying through zones, fuck even erci malachai wasn't that bad, but as soon as I tried maps it's like someone flipped bullshit switch right on.
yeah, yeah, hurrdurr, let's all laugh at the new guy from our 96 Mirrors thrones, god forbid anyone starts playing this game after 2010 fucking casuals, more instadeath mechanics GGG pls
Played this game years ago around initial release.
1. Are there pants ingame yet?
2. Any point into getting back into the game right now or better to wait for ascendancy? I have the biggest urge to play something akin to Diablo2 right now
What's your favorite and your least favorite location in the game's Acts?
Mine is probably the entirety of Daresso's dream. The whole feeling of challenge that Daresso issues to the player and the Colosseum make for a really great setting.
Least favorite is Marketplace because its annoying to traverse and it doesn't tell any kind of story.
Is that at all difficult?
>pick a skill
attack or spell, then elemental chaos or phys
>pick a methood
Crit or non-crit
>pick defensive type
>apply idea to passive tree
hp/armour, hp/ eva, hp/mom/othermitigation, CI
>level and succeed with the build
Pick life/es nodes, Pick relevant damage nodes, gear properly for defenses
Its pretty simple stuff
kill mobs -> gain charges
get hit -> cwdt fires -> immortal call consumes said charges
kill mobs -> gain charges
literally it has a near 95% endurance charge uptime
It plays exactly like the pre nerfed cwdt + endurance + immortal call + increased duration
it's shit, what it is, just like every other shit build I tried to make. Fuck this shit.
I had at least 170% increased life from nodes when I died, with some regen and flat+life, even the scion's life wheel.
Fuck it, I'll meme some build like arc or some shit
weed is bad because it hides the very real physical problems you could be developing from sitting at a computer all day
your body can't tell you that you're falling apart when you're stoned all the time
you need to get more exercise and make sure you're not practicing any bad computing habits
then, if you're leading a healthy life with good diet and exercise while practicing proper computing habits and still suffer from chronic pain, maybe weed could be the answer probably not!
fuck me I am dumb, someone on this thread gives the answer already
but what if I don't have Daresso's Defiance, what are some subsitutes I can use for the time being
the wiki page says CWDT takes piroty before loosing charges.
high level gem are way different from keystones. keystones usually forces players to spend a fuck load of passive points to get there, so a unique with an inbuild keystone is very strong.
3 keystone with god synergies on one item sounds ridiculously op lmao.
there are many jokes already anon!

i can't stand ggg's skill balance decisions and i can't stand how pussy they've become with decision making anymore
i know the general populace didn't like it but choosing a desync network model, making loot allocation timers, promoting a cut-throat league, etc. these could have been good mechanics if they kept working on them. these decisions were examples of a developer who went against the grain in order to provide some gameplay mechanics that are typically eschewed for fear of offending their casual playerbase to provide something more to the few players who actually understand the importance of such features.
no other developer in the world was doing these things it was a breath of fresh air from a world where you can expect the developer to immediately pander to the lowest common denominator. it was literally the reason i signed up with poe and followed it so intently for over five years.
ggg no longer makes such decisions anymore. it's obvious. all they care about now is player retention and that means every decision they make is prioritized first by if it will hurt their happy casual farming simulator playing fanbase which is evident by the continual pussification of the game.
from their whack a mole skill balancing to their casual tier decision making, i no longer have any confidence in the future of poe. at this point i'm more impressed by what blizzard has done with d3. at least they don't try and pretend like they're a hardcore arpg while constantly balancing the game for casuals. they inject the casuals with what they want immediately while trying to give the rest something more to do with every patch.
poe just feels lost at this point. the devs aren't focusing on the important issues the game has. worried more about pumping out new leagues to sell new supporter packs and bringing more badly designed features to force stash tab sales. game is shit and dead forever
