Get Lost, Vorici

I dunno, I don't LIKE Vorici because of how tedious some of his quests are, but I appreciate the fact that they require a bit more thinking then 'hurdurhur, hit things'.

Totally agree.


Which would be fine if the vast majority of the game didn't all but force 'hurdurhur, hit things'. It's also why the Lab was so jarring to many long-time players. Suddenly there was significant content that seemed to run counter-intuitively to everything PoE players had been taught to do for years. Vorici is the same thing, in microcosm.

And I'll admit I can completely agree with this sentiment and still skip the bastard myself, because while I think it's a shame that PoE doesn't have a better balance between 'hurdurhur, hit things' and 'slow down and think this one through a bit', it *doesn't* have a better balance between the two. It is so overwhelmingly the former that any instance of the latter gets on my nerves WHEN I'm in PoE mode.
Designer of 'Oni-Goroshi, Charan's sword'. Yes, I wrote all those lines. Even the really bad ones. I'm sorry.
Leo is absolutely worthless. Forcing players to pvp is wrong, matchups are garbage. And 180s survival wtf, cut it down to 30s and quit wasting our time ggg.

though i do like his hideout and the nerfed 5% rdot still has some use...
Enh ... I actually LIKE Vorici's missions.

If you're "too strong" and one-shot the target too much, is it really that hard to keep some intentionally inefficient, low level weapons loaded with some single target skills available? No matter what you're build is built for, you can switch out gear and become "less efficient" at need.

Vorici's Bench and skills are valuable, he's supposed to be (at least a bit) more difficult than the others.


I'd say it's "Working As Intended".
I always said " ... and this, too, shall pass away ... "

And now it's happened: 21/05/2018. The day GGG ceased to exist as an independent company.

Won't help if you're running a totem build with Ancestral Bond. The best you can do is to try and reduce the DPS of your totems, but you still have virtually no control over whom they attack and for how long.

That said, I did manage to get Vorici to 7 in this league with my FB totem build, but it took me as long as it took to get the other masters (except Zana) to 8. His missions can be a royal pain in the ass if you're running the "wrong" type of build.
Fuck master rotas. Fuck any kind of rotas, for that matter.

If you think that's bad, you should see minion builds with spectres that kill off map. GL keeping the target alive for 2 seconds, let alone 8
Pff, every vorici mission can be done, and I say that as summoner. Is it a pain sometimes? Yes. But not very hard if you use your brain.
