The key to understanding PoE may be that is it not made for the same players as Diablo 2

I demand a nerf to nostalgia goggles, those BiS guys are ganging up on me :( Nice proposal from LPSoldier btw, it'd be fun to see how that turns out :) RNG will stay RNG though.

aaaaaaand he choose to let someone else speak for him instant after someone finally did, after silence up till then.

Why am i not surprised. I hope you still go through with this, create a thread on how we can set up a proper test and i will contribute with ideas.

Even something as simple as a list of all "good stuffs" we find will show just how little you get in PoE in comparison.

Sorry that I was away for an hour, won't happen again :) If you wish I can make a list of 'good stuffs' you can get in PoE with a couple of weeks of simple farming.

It is irrevelant what you in theory "can get". You could in theory get a Tyraels the first time you kill Baal on hell.

Good that we agree on RNG is RNG. Maybe you will now realize why Isbox1's proposal would be a waste of time.

The game certainly is heavy enough to support people who are now grown men, and still seek their sense of achievement in life through playing a game.


That is beautifully condescending, but on the other hand, you're here too. :)

lol. This guy cant be serious. If you have played diablo 2 at any lenght and then POE you would immediately be floored by how hard gear is to come by in POE.

In diablo 2:

Make sorc
Put points into blizzard/teleport
get to the end of act 1
farm boss

rinse repeat for all acts.

Without MF gear you will EASILY get MF gear just farming duri/meph/andi/etc...

hell. Nightmare meph farming for an hour or two will probably get you better loot than you would get in poe in a few weeks. Once you get to hell and you are already decked out with the low uniques from farming nm its over. lol seriously. I can see it now. How ANYONE can say the two are comparable is just incredible.

Thats not even counting if you do a few countess runs and make some of the low lvl runewords to speed things up. Christ... Just thinking about it is making me pissed at how shitty POE handles loot. The fuck. seriously.

For argument's sake, how are we going to know whether you found an item or bought it from a RMT site for a dollar or two? (Or traded it with someone, or got it from them just for giggles.) Similarly, what prevents you from running a bot 24/7? I'm not saying you would do that, but if you want to actually prove something, those are the obvious concerns.

I'm a full time career mechanic with a wife, play maybe 2 hours a day during the week, a lot on Saturdays, and very little on Sundays. Most of the people i associate with in game are in the same boat. How did I/we get 6Ls and fully geared characters? I'm certain it's not by spending all my free time whining on the forums.


I've always been a big fan of your posts, and I'm glad to see they're from a person who clearly has their priorities straight. Rock the fuck on.
