Anyone looking forward to Pokemon of Exile?

Seems like a fucking hassle keeping mobs alive to trap them with certain builds.

Ryder Carter

you can throw the net first and then oneshot them and you'll still capture it

Jack Adams

No I have literally zero hype for this league

Connor Rivera

Lemme just tell my solar guards to chill while I get the pokeball out of my bag.

I'm more interested in the ascendancy rework desu.

Adrian Wilson

Newfag here. What's a good starter build?

Parker Flores

Solar guards literally lag like five screens behind so you're fine. If it is a problem then it's your fault for choosing an uncontrollable build in a league where maybe you have to show some restraint. Anyway who cares, you're not going to be trapping whites and if you're deleting high hp league rares then you're set already and don't need them.

Depends what you want to be doing and what your threshold for 'good' is (and what the patch notes are I guess). If you do Sunder or SRS or Firestorm you should be fine.

not just running spectures

This will be my first time, so ideally I want to play something that not super hard, fun and let's me clear all the content. I liked playing Lightning Wiz in D3, if that helps.

Carter White

Arc could work.

lag like five screens behind
Not far enough if their beam shit is off cooldown.
Spectres are fun so fuck that noise.

David Walker

my starter is usually scorching ray chieftain. just set down a decoy totem and start melting things. also get can benefit from elemental equilibrium. everything becomes a joke. it's similar to disintegrate.

Brody Price

Well you don't have immunities to deal with so it's really a lot more open than diablo 2. The real problem is that boss hp is super inflated now so you to clear all the content you really want something that clears and has good single target. Arc is basically chain lightning and it clears well but the single target is real average and there's no great single target skill that synergises well with it.

SRS is probably the best because there are a million different variations that are all fine and it has both good single target and good clear. Some people hate playing it though.

Andrew Robinson
Andrew Robinson

Thanks guys. I've got another question, how important is the skill tree build? I'm generally not retarded and played ARPGs for ages, would I be fine picking what I like, or will I fuck it up because you need to be very specific about it?

Jaxon Butler
Jaxon Butler

you will probably fuck up your first character but that's part of the learning curve.

David Campbell

Turn back while you still can. Don't play this shitty game.

Jeremiah Rivera

You might want to check out a couple of build guides to see what big nodes they take and how they work. Shit like Elemental Equilibrium can fuck you over if you don't understand it.
Other than that the passive tree is fairly simple, just take a shitton of life and some damage.

Easton Williams
Easton Williams

Yeah, I kinda expect that. But what's normal, using your own build or is there a strict meta set of "best" skills?
But it appeals to me.

Josiah Bailey
Josiah Bailey

I'm telling you user. If you ever plan to play it even remotely seriously or do endgame content, just don't. You will be massively disappointed.

Jaxon Campbell
Jaxon Campbell

This. Hoping for more viable builds to come from it and make some of the boring but powerful ones more interesting, IE Inquisitor. Fully expecting Glacial Mines Sabo to get blown up, the tears will be glorious.

Connor Bailey
Connor Bailey

If they destroy GC mines but do nothing about lightpoacher and wanders I will seriously stop playing.

Caleb Martinez

Why?

Adrian Mitchell

Build diversity and map diversity are nonexistent. You are forced into playing a certain way if you ever want to be able to afford anything.

Logan Williams

one of the new skills is just a fire version of Sunder
How boring

Didn't you read the abyss manifesto you fucking retard.

Tyler Harris

so when is poe gonna get a good overhead camera? maybe a FOV slider? im sorry but the game feels claustrophobic and the overhead angle is closer to 90 degrees than 45 degrees. diablo2 still has better game feel and doesnt make me nauseous.

Henry Wright
Henry Wright

Yeah, and the other is spectral throw but with a shield. When are they going to drop the patch notes on the new ascendancies?

Sebastian Diaz
Sebastian Diaz

also maybe they should optimize poe for multi core CPUs before they add more GARBAGE to the dlc store.
2018
Action RPG that runs on ONE CPU CORE

Wow. More grinding for ultra rare single-use items. How exciting.

Christopher Long

Hardly a nerf. It now only takes a bit more investment.

Xavier Davis

literally every build in the game favors passive HP increases over damage. the game is broken.

Are you aware of the genre you're playing?

Jackson Walker

oh and builds that are 99% hp and defence still get killed in one hit. poe a shit id rather play ever D2 mod ever made before i re-install that game.

Thomas Edwards
Thomas Edwards

And? I'm not calling buff nor nerf, I'm just pointing out they're doing SOMETHING with lightpoacher, which completely negates your "hurrr do nothing about lightpoacher" statement quite easily.

Dominic Taylor

git gud
you lost.

Elijah Howard

skill in poe
No amount of skill will let you earn anywhere near as much as you do by playing optimally. IE running sextanded vaults with breach and shaper/elder influence.

Evan Adams

git gud

Zachary Gray

people who whine about build diversity will literally never be happy

Dylan Barnes
Dylan Barnes

Do you have to lower the monster HP to throw the trap and imobilize them? if not then it's easy mode just throw the trap and perma immobilize it until its dead. Otherwise if it needs low HP your minions will just kill it and you'll get fucked

Alexander Collins
Alexander Collins

Yeah, you're right. I was just pissed because the sextanted speedrunning meta will most likely stay the same.

Nathaniel Collins
Nathaniel Collins

This is true. The only way to have build diversity is to have zero end game like Diablo 2, that way even the shittiest of builds can shine.

Caleb Watson
Caleb Watson

Build diversity during 1.3, 2.0, burning meta and poison meta was greater than it is now

Ian Lopez

I miss d2

Julian Lopez

I've never used sextants in my life and I reach 36 challenges every league, you don't need to play the way others play to find enjoyment yourself.

Benjamin Jones
Benjamin Jones

implying challenges matter
What's your /played and how many ex did you earn?

Liam Hill
Liam Hill

Wait, so you are saying that currency is the only thing that matters? Even though it becomes useless after 3 months? Meanwhile I get to use my earned MTX anywhere I go? No wonder you're complaining about the sextant meta.

Thomas Parker
Thomas Parker

daily reminder d2 is better then poe. poe is shit.

Adrian Morris
Adrian Morris

giving a shit about cosmetics
Yes, currency and xp are the only two things that matter, as they are the things that make your character stronger, which is exactly the point of these games.

Adam Barnes
Adam Barnes

I don't believe that and people were whining about it then too anyway.

David Parker
David Parker

Then it's safe to assume you're completely oblivious about the game, because sextants is not the only way to acquire currency in this game. You can do uber lab runs, either for profit or to carry people, shaper, uber atziri, play the market, sell challenges (yeah, this is why challenge matters you faggot). And if you want xp you do t16 maps or poorjoy rotas not shaped sextant strands you mongoloid.

Adrian Parker
Adrian Parker

The game is shit back to diablo 3

Jaxson Howard
Jaxson Howard

lmao

Jackson Howard
Jackson Howard

The only legit one is flipping and playing the market. None of that other shit comes anywhere near running fully optimised sextanted vaults.
poorjoy rotas
And these require currency. Really makes you think doesn't it?

Dominic Bailey

Zachary Flores

Then you shouldn't be playing the 50th rehash of the exact same Pokemon game you've been playing since the 90s you dumb nigger. There's a reason your kind have a containment board.
