Changes to the Labyrinth

I really don't get the hate for the lab to be honest. It's actually a piece of content that's different and refreshing, unless you have an abysmal build it's 10-20min x3 for a character while the benefit is generally immense for the character.

No one is forced to play the lab outside of that, 1hr max per character is sweet FA in the grand scheme of things.

People just want this game on easy mode, it's stupid. I play exclusively hardcore and I've died heaps of times in the lab due to being an idiot on the traps or underestimating Izaro's buffs etc, but generally that was my fault and I should have been more careful.

95% of builds that aren't crazy hipster snowflakes can do lab fine in an inconsequential amount of time.

GGG's changes look like they are going to make the lab less of a chore (for those that hate it) while still keeping it relevant.

If you want all build bonuses for no effort go play another ARPG that does it.
Please allow for another way to get ascendancy points. Lab is tedious and keeping a lot of fun builds from ever becoming viable by blocking their access to necessary ascendancy points. Build diversity would go up with a change to way labs work. Give them an incentive for players who like to play them and don't make them necessary for builds to progress into endgame.
For me it is those traps, bad confusing layout and the one portal limit that makes hate the lab so much.

Agree!

Also, to all the haters who are bemoaning their plight as HC players... maybe don't play HC then? it's not as if the game doesn't give you choices.

I imagine that you have a good pc, imagine the people who doesnt, imagine you getting DC'ed at the last loading screend to the last izaro fight? imagine your fps droping to 5 because of the areas with rain? but hey the same pc can run most of the maps just fine, do some bosses and other content, but you are forced to do the labs ''just once'' and you will have to face all that frustating thing i told before, so ye, how does it feel? buy a new pc? not everyone can afford it, and the game will lose players, and you will lose with it too, if the game have more players they will generate more money, and make new content easier, faster, etc...just think about it
Great...... 6 more trials we have to track down.

At least I hope they are still unlocked for all future characters each league by the first character to complete them.

Can't wait for The Fall of Oriath, looks good.
If you don't love the Labyrinth, you're no friend of mine

This game is about learning from mistakes and becoming a better player. Not complaining the instant something requires you to think and plan for..

Here's to keeping Labyrinth, well.. a Labyrinth

I sure hope we don't see sub 2 min runs in 3.0..

Nice QoL changes. But nothing that would shake up the lab related meta imo.

The Plaza will contain a place to slam the Offering, that's pretty obvious tbh.


Considering the fact that the whole game is getting changed with this expansion, pretty obvious is a rather weak affirmation, don't you think?
