Snapshotting

Hm i don´t know whats coming this way... but my summoner is fun even without snapshotting (ain´t got the gear for that) and my zombies are not 6k HP monsters but they won´t die anyway, i have just 737HP and around 1500ES and i use the life to run an additional aura. Im really a weak little witch with 80%resists. My minions are killing all the bad guys while i´m hiding. So there isn´t much to worry about right now... lets see whats coming and then cry if needed.

ok try to do 77-78 maps with 1.5k es and 700 Hp any chaos dmg one shot or any mob hit might just kill you and how can you play hardcore for example!
so the mentioned stats are at lvl 62 and without fully leveled auras so there is more to come till i go for lvl 70+ maps. There is pretty good skills to mitigate physical damage and of course you will have to deal with chaos damage somehow, stacking res+shavs and flasks. well nothing to worry right now. vaal immortal call might also be an option. So still can´t see the real problem. Summoner is more squishy witout snapshotting but there is plenty of options to compensate for that.
actually im looking forward to "hot snapshotting" my minions: rip out minion damage and stick in minion ele resists for temple piety etc... no resummon.

I think i like it.


didnt need to snapshot until higher level maps in the last league: minions reach a definite plateau before other playstyles, around l70, after that the bonuses come from levelling 20% gems for replacement. Those higher level maps were about as difficult from ~70 up to 88 (when i stopped playing). they never got any easier, which is something i cant say for other characters ive had above 70.

This hot swap idea brings a potential new abuse to mind, that of summoning minions with reduced mana (eg) and hot swapping in all the big cost supports via a script.

if possible, im not sure that its any better or less undesirable than snapshotting

Just a thought...

how about increased duration with Chober Chaber?

If I have this item in second weapon slot and use it to summon ie. Animate Weapon (using gems in my chest), will the duration bonus persist after I switch back to my main weapon set? Is this considered snapshotting?

Snapshotting is every switching of current items with other items. Why would this be any different?
So people who are new to this game will never ever be able to do those snapshot builds, for overpowered gear/items/builds you will need tons of exalted orbs/mirriors to get such a high damage based build, which took me longer then 1 year to even earn this currency to buy those items, and i still don't have the max amount of currency to buy those gear. I think snapshotting is what people wannabe play this game/builds because they are good and cool to play, which means nerfing this might make people quit/or even destroy somebody his build/tree.

Low Life Spectral throw is my build, which means i won't be able to use spectral throw since i will be only having 86 mana left and still able to run 5 aura's with blood magic/reduced mana on tree/gems. In other words, nerfing all builds around Path Of Exile.

Those builds is something different then ground slam, those builds cost a tons of currency which needs years to safe for. In my opinion, give those people a reward for having this kind of amazing gear/items/builds or overpowered build whatever you want to call it yourself.

Playing for this long, you should be rewarded for having such an amazing build like this. That's what you play for isnt it? What's the differents after patch? 5 aura's same DPS same gear same items with the same build.

Snaphotting should be allowed, You pay tons of currency for this build. If you have it, you should be rewarded... Not like this to remove snapshotting. I hope people don't quit because of this, which whould be amazing dissapointing.

Get rid of some auras then to have more mana. Whats the problem?

You dont pay real currency though, do you? Only virtual one, so it doesnt really matter. I rather have a balanced game than an unbalanced one.

Next time, dont use exploits.

I already get 1 shotted by mobs, what is unbalanced about it? Having more dps/aura's by switching one item? what a joke.
