The Celestial Lightning Trap Effect - The Apocalypse Mystery Box Returns

I'm sure some are not happy about it but I love all the new celestial MTXs.

Remember when I won a screenshot contest and made everyone butt-hurt? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
WTB an mtx to turn off effects instead of all these fancy things.
In memory of my best friend [*] 1995-2018.

In order to get rid of clearspeed meta cap global movement speed at 100% but make all skills instant so everything feels great.
I am surprised there is no Mirage Archer Celestial effect. Now that is a celestial I would like to see.

ah the old "dislike something because its popular" thing, you sir are an MTX hipster XD

in all seriousness celestial probably sells better than other flavors so it only makes sense to go back to the well that has the water
When is POE going to gate something behind HOW GOOD YOU PLAY, HOW SMART YOUR CHOICES or HOW STRONG YOUR CHARACTER IS? why must ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING be nested RNG, gated behind how many 16 hour days you can repeat the same EASY BORING low maps?

I always thought it was synonymous with look what we're going to nerf into the ground?

I'm playing it right now and I just can't see Lightning Trap getting nuked too hard. Saboteurs are less than 1% of characters in this league and lightning trap less than half a percent of the total. It's a good skill, plenty of damage and AoE. The build is quite flexible, but squishy and doesn't match any of the top builds for clear speed.

Potentially somewhat justified, but damn that's cynical.

Celestial has probably simply proven itself one of the most popular themes they've come up with. I know I really love it at times for certain characters. But it's always a shame to really love a theme and not have a skill you want to use 'fit' with it. GGG taking the most popular theme and gradually adding as many skills to it as they can makes a good deal of sense. I don't really see a problem with that.


It's especially cynical given the author.

I disapprove of any shaper shit mtx. It's triggering.

Generic response to those saying my criticism is like asking GGG not to sell what sells: I FIRMLY believe they have the talent and creativity to come up with more original, creative skill mtxes and still make plenty of money. In fact, saying that they should just milk a theme at the cost of said originality and creativity isn't half the defence it seems to be.

And yeah, take into account who and what I am here. I own more mtxes than pretty much any of you, so when I take GGG to task over mtx design, it's not some drive-by mockery. I genuinely think this is an inferior mtx design compared to so many others. If you like it, that's fine. I like McDonald's from time to time but I'd never pretend that just because it sells a lot that it's quality product.
