I have been running Merciless Docks in PUGs for XPs and I occasionally see something that has me confused. I will see other players (typically, witches) with three curses on them and these curses are often curses that mobs in that area don't cast. What is causing what I am seeing?
The game is zoomed in way too much. This actually makes ranged terrible in end game because all you do is shoot off screen until all of the hard monsters die since its way too risky to get close to them. Other problem is that alchemists and those arc bitches shoot you off screen before you can see them and react.
In fact - pretty much any nasty monster you can think of can kill you before you even realize they are there, since you can't see shit with current zoom level.
Point 2: perspective is whacked and feels weird - its way too high angle.
Inventory space is ridiculously small. You have like 3-4 weapons that take 4x2 space and its gg, back to town to id them. And on top of that you need to micro manage your inventory mid game trying to fit your shit into it. This isn't fun. Items should take less space, and make the sizes more standard - so that we don't have to play a retarded tetris game while trying to kill monsters off screen.
A concerned exile.
I hear what you are saying and yes, this game is challenging. But if it wasn't, it would be boring.
