Communication and the Sacred Orb

That's something I suppose
It's called a hamster wheel. Why is it fun?
We don't normally talk about drop rates, but in this case it will help solve a miscommunication. The Sacred Orb is more than three times rarer than an Exalted Orb. It is currently the second-rarest currency item after the Mirror of Kalandra.

Aren't Veiled Chaos Orbs about 5 times rarer than exalts? That's been my experience, although my sample size might be too small to say much (I've had perhaps 50 pure exalt drops since Veiled Chaos were added)

I'm less apprehensive about these at Veiled Chaos rarity but still not a fan.

At lower rarity I'd have said "scrap this urgently". At Veiled Chaos tier rarity, I'm more willing to take a "let's see how this plays for one league" attitude.

You guys really need a PTR for the general public and it shows. How do you expect anyone to like changes when you shout them into an echo chamber and think that means it can go forward?
This changes nothing. the real game is still outside gameplay. It's trade and third party exploitation, either streaming or discord or some other outside party/guild organization.

Nerfing auras will just make that number of elite cooperatives and system exploiters more rich and more rare.

This game is becoming just a boring satire of what ignorant people think the real world is like.

All the core problems with poe remain. Chief among which is a complete lack of reason to trust the dev team.

You talk about transparency but still no damage log. And so much is done behind the veil of server side calculation that it's simply foolish to trust the word of the dev team about anything.

Every league is the same, and standard is frozen. A handful of professionals blast to lvl 100 in a matter of days and everyone else just serves them directly or indirectly by wage slaving through low content and selling stuff they'll buy in bulk to exploit some mechanic or market imbalance.

It's growing intolerable to play and sell knowing my wealth will simply flow upward to some wallstreet type "earning" more on the market in a day then I could playing for 5 years.

It's insulting and disgusting and there's clearly no reason to expect that's gonna change.

I'm sure I'll still play, try out a build, slog around in scrubcore mode because I refuse to sign up for one of the actual soul crushing paths to late content, but I won't be spending money, and I'll be constantly hoping I can find some satisfactory replacement.

Poe feels like a dented can of spinach in the apocalypse. I'm grateful to have it, but it's a miserable meal none the less.

Until trade, speed running, meta chasing, and streaming are nerfed, the game will essentially be casino like in it's newb trapiness and I will never recommend it to anyone I care about.

All the rest is just claptrap and glitter meant to distract us from the perpetual core betrayal of selling out to a gigacorp and never lowering prices.

The tightest bind I have to this game is dead friends, old memories, and no real alternatives.

Credit where due. Scourge looks amazing, both league and general changes. Will be spending money. 2021-10-14 0344 PM

I think the whole alternate quality mechanic is a waste. Just widens the gear gap of a regular (note: not casual or 2-hours-a-day andys) and a top 1% player.

Your filter will hide badly rolled bases. Especially in SSF, you have to play with what you're given. If my Conqueror-influenced ilvl 86 Astral Plate rolled 0% new quality, it will feel very bad and I will probably never get to fix it. I suggest adjusting all item base defence values accordingly, or keeping them the same, and not releasing this change. Very bad overall for the game
I wish you would have given one league a shot without this orb, but I'm glad you at least made it really rare. I still worry its value will be relatively low, due to it being pretty niche.

The people who sit on the edge of their seat waiting for their chance to sling shit at GGG immediately after they make a post are so sad.

LGTM, thanks for the clarification. We'll see how this new system feels like.
Its purpose is that a near-perfect item can eventually be perfected, at incredible cost.

Who the hell decided that?

I want maximize my chances to survive IN ANY TIME, not at 'nearly perfect' point of my gear. At 'nearly perfect' point I DON'T NEEDED that few %, because my gear already can handle problems.

Also, why new orb? Why another droppable shit what I must to pick? Why not just an option for crafting table for 5c with chances that high for 1-5% and low for 17-20%?

Why so misconception, GGG?
E = mc^(OMG)/wtf
Stop selling us rainbows at the price of your MTX. Fun fact:An armor MTX can get to 84 bucks which is more than a normal priced game.
