I can't see anything interesting coming in the next leagues yet


What do you expect? Please tell us :)
My opinion is that the game is good fun - the 'ladder resets' / new 4 month leagues in themselves are enough, yet GGG manages to bring so much more to the table with updates, continuous new uniques, the occasional (which is still often) new skills and continually working to improve the game.

I love PoE as it is and the new 4 month leagues are enough of an update for me in themselves, so anything on top of that is always a bonus :D.

Again, please tell us what you do expect to see (although this isn't a suggestions thread, I still hope you post it up here *thumbs up*.

TL;DR - what do you expect mate?

As for my hopes - I hope that outside of corrupted ... things :P GGG encourages farm runs (i.e. piety) and increases the choice for mfers (for example they could make other bosses in lower acts worth farming (I was a bit of a d2 fan/player and I like the idea that you had the choice of just baal or meph runs, but there was also all the other bosses that were farmed (andariel, countess, pindleskin, eldritch and so on that were worthy of an mfer's time).

Someone please explain to me about how anything in this game is "easy" ... [truncated]


All I meant by easy was that you can get to level 80 fairly quickly, without having to do much farming for better equipment.

It might not be as 'easy' when people are actually racing on HC to stay in the top of the ladder, because they are taking more risks than someone who is not.

At level 60 you really shouldn't be dying if you are just farming xp.

I also have to ask, why would you not be interested in trading? I understand not having a shop, selling everything you find, because I don't do that either. When I find an item that I know is worth something and won't take forever to sell, I'll just quickly make a thread for it and let people come to me about it. It doesn't take that much effort to sell items like that so you can easily upgrade your own gear to pretty decent levels.

Edit:

For new players, no I wouldn't say it is 'easy' to get level 80. I assume 95%+ of the people posting in this thread have had multiple characters though.

When I first started this game it felt way harder to progress than it does now.


Ooooh, ok, thanks, that clears it up a little bit. Also the talk of map levels a few posts back, too -- so it's not so much that the game itself is "easy" but that leveling high-level characters is faster/more efficient with Parties.

As for trading, I just don't really want to deal with other people, nice as they may be. I game to zone out from work and life's daily grind, and the idea of buying/selling with real people is to me too much like life outside of gaming. I'm coming to realize that the trading community was an intended and integral part of the POE experience, though, so I should really give it a chance... Also, I'm hoarding my currency cuz I can't seem to figure out how to make it rain. I have not yet found a single Exalted Orb. Do they only drop in high-level maps?

its all understanding the mechanics, combat tactics, gut feelings on probabilities from previous experience etc. I sympathise with your position, a lot of us were exactly where you are going 'wtf?!?!' at the start of open beta.

getting to 70 is really simple if you know a lot about the game. You can get to 70 in 2 or 3 days, providing youve played the game for 1000 hours already and have that knowledge.

Honestly I learnt a lot from streams. If you have a laptop or a second monitor you can throw a stream on while you are playing, find someone who talks a lot and answers viewer questions etc, youll pick up a ton of stuff just having them waffle on like background radio noise beside you when you play. Esp in the first few days of the new leagues. But it takes time, theres a lot that doesnt really sink in till youve tried it.


Good tip, thanks!

Wow. Just wow....
so Corrption to maps, can make them have sick nasty mods, or change the base type up one level?
so if i get a vaal pyramid map drop thats corrupted, it may not even actually be a vaal pyramid map, which i like, but could very well instead be a map i hate? Not a big fan of this, if anything it should just upgrade the base vaal map from 68 to level 69

..only..wow


First, corruption seems to be a very complicated and game changing mechanic if you can enhance all your items/skills to a new level of possibilities.

Second here a list of some other changes!

-New monster with the new mechanic "flying" getting implemented
-more areas with more lore
-all the good stuff from the previously leagues get implemented to the permanent leagues,
for example nemesis mods,shrines, jade/quartz/higher level life/mana flasks
-more itemtypes for example the new quivers/rings
-more new unique items
-updated unique item models for many uniques
-more vendor recipes
-a whole new endboss
-updated skilltree with possible free skilltree reset
-new 4 month leagues with new stuff to explore/uniques/challenges/modifications
-new game features
-a open free for all PVP zone! (sad thats nothing said about tournamnets!!)
-improved balancing for many items
...and way more stuff


..and all that shit is not even called a "big" expansion, only "mini" expansion,
its not act 4! So wtf are you talking, can you think before you write shit next time, thanks
