lol.. died to extra cold damage melee skeles in sins 3. It was a huge pack so I was close to them trying to hit a lot and the one skele who could hit me froze me. I was so surprised that it happened to freeze me on its first hit that I did not think I would die. I even thought about logging out but I thought I would be okay....... something like 20 seconds from the sins 2 waypoint. Anyway I guess I was not really in the mood since I hate having to play slow and safe for ancestral :/

Roll ranger, hit upper, 2x diamond totems in a tight passage surrounded by witches, 2x invuln totems in a tight passage surrounded by witches. Squids everywhere. No way to pass without luring and killing every single monster several times over. Hit 4, go to run offscreen to equip roa, randomly frozen by nothing and dropped to 1/4 life, dead half a second later. Nothing capable of cold damage onscreen, just a couple of auraless/chargeless white squids.

Reroll witch, decent run to upper prison though im obviously not going to win at this point, enter a room with 3x skeleton totems that all go off at once and my fps hitches for a good 2 seconds then drops to a slideshow. Have to altf4, come back in standard.

Feedback: Performance issues, desync, too much randomness- the same problems that have been plaguing races, and the rest of the game for that matter, for over a year now.

Also, as multiple race seasons of spamming repetitive/ignored feedback clearly isnt coming to any useful fruition, and typing this stuff out now has a strong feel of time being flushed down the toilet, im done. Thisll be my final race feedback/report.

GG all!

Most ridicolous race ever for me!

Had the worst map layouts, ran in ever dead end. needed over 1h to reach act2 ... lol.
then, only 1 flask drop (and 1 quicksilver), no corals, no amulets (literaly 0, nothing). i couldn't even buy one ...

died to a warp totem (i guess) which ported to me in the split second of a skele totem lag where i chased an extra dmg rare. should have played more carefully ...

lol @ that gear. i couldn't even craft (or buy) some better due to no orbs :/

I had by far the worst RNG of anyone in this race. placed 22nd overall but I had no chance to do anything. It's actually a joke. My rings are especially lolworthy.



fuck everything about this race


Placed 20th, best I've done so far! Got some real nice stuff, imo. Really misjudged how well I was doing, and ended up spending the last 30 minutes just farming the church dungeon.

My luck with transmutations was insane. Made these two back to back:

^makes me feel even worse, barely losing to people who's gear is literally twice as good as mine.

As much as people criticise descent races for RNG, there is alot less of it in descent because you at least get currency and some base weapons to work with.

I can consistently place top 15 and even win Descent as ranger, whereas in races like this I can lose to people solely based on RNG. Saddening.

I mean hell, I had to mule a witch pre-mervail because I never got a cold res ring on my vendor. In descent you can at least skip bosses.

Vendors should at least ALWAYS have 1 of each res ring, players shouldn't have to mule blue gems just so they can get a cold res ring, that's just unfair and puts you back a few minutes.
