I have a spare I candid drop in the guild bank.

I got 2 early on, tried a toxic rain build, but I'm having too much fun with the Frost Blade duelist. Finally got a good balance of pewpew and survival, got up to 87 which I think is a record for me.

One thing I've noticed is that going a Pathfinder has totally spoiled me.  All my other builds seem SLOW AS FUCK and they have potions that RUN OUT.

I mean.

I'm having fun playing again after a long break with a minion witch. The best part is that I decided on the laziest possible way of playing with two raging spirit totems being the only skill needing to be used most of the time (with occasional skeletons and vaal skeletons for boss fights)

Per Ironwood I added a Vaal Warchief. Amazing, bosses melt with a regular and 2 vaal ones out at once. Even the pain in the ass ones just go away.

I'm not sure if you know, but Vaal Skill Gems also provide their regular skill so you don't need to be running Vaal Warchief and Regular Warchief anymore.

Yeah, that was one of the better changes from the last few patches.  You used to have to run skeletons and vaal skeletons and it was a total pain in the ass.  I managed to free up some slots and sockets from my old builds when they made that change.  You still have some issues though, since you can't change a Vaal gem because it's corrupt, so you can't make them quality.  What's best to do is level your 'normal' gem in your off-set of weapons and then, when they're level 20 and you've made them 20% quality, take a chance and use a Vaal Orb.

That said, it would still be really, really fucking nice if they could give us more quick buttons and UI slots.  Telling us for ages it wasn't going to happen and then giving us 6 and 7 for flares and dynamite is a kick in the nuts.  Or even a button that you could press after death that would ready you up.  Put all your auras and stuff on it and then press it to get ready.  You might think it's barely a five second task, and you're right, but it's a major pain in my ass.  Finding out after the boss that you didn't have your hatred on because your Golem button was there instead.  :(

My build is doing very nice. Somehow POB has hypothermia better than vicious projectiles. I'm confused.

Also I'm still trying to get into yellow maps. Tough to maintain right now.

Delving my ass off. I'm farming fossiles. The belt I'm wearing is sweet. Life, res and 30% Inc chaos damage.

I'm not sure I have the skill to recognize the difference between a diamond and a poop smear for gear in this game.  I know what stats I want on things, but still haven't learned the ranges for stat tiers good enough to recognize them.

Any advice on an easy spec to try?  I prefer ranged to melee and have played a few totem builds in the past.

I will say that there's an option in settings where you can hold alt and the item will SHOW you what tiers you've rolled on your items.

I switched it on during incursion and then depressed the fuck out of myself for months.

"Ooooo, good roll.  for a tier 14.   Heartbreak"


Also, try Toxic Rain.  There's a quill in the guild bank and it's easy to five slot it and you'll just breeze the whole game from level 12.  Go on.  Go On.  GO ON.  ONE OF US.

Well, I'm on just now, but not an officer.  

On a related note, I'm trying to get rid of all my Standard shite.  If you see anything being sold by Quillbeast and fancy it, let me know and I'll pop it into the GB for free.

You can download a trade macro: https://github.com/PoE-TradeMacro/POE-TradeMacro

You need to have Hotkey script program running. Holt ctrl-C over an item in your inventory and you get to see all the Tiers of the stats. You can also ctrl-D and price check it.

Came across this on reddit while looking for some build ideas.  Thought you may find it interesting.

Why Pohx is considering not playing Hardcore mode any more.

He gives some insight into damage and survival in the current meta.

I feel better after watching that, my 89 frostblade kept getting one-shot at depth 200, so I built a tanky lacerate build, who at 75 kept getting one shot around depth 180.
Went back to mapping, and cleared a couple t13 maps without issue.

The guys at depth 3,000 are sploiting the fuck out of the mechanics.  It's not even funny.

New Trailer up for the Betrayal league.  As ever, looks very interesting.  Seems to be a mashup of 3 previous leagues with something of a nemesis type investigation system.

All very strange and interesting.  Delve got old REAL quick, so it'll be good to temper that a bit....

New League drops tonight and, as per usual, Wife and I will probably be tootling around with new chars.  Feel free to say hi if you're on.

I'm thinking Totem Heirophant again, but I might use an Ice Witch for the new skills.  Not sure yet.

I played for a bit, seems very odd. It feels like I can't pull back the camera are far as I used to be able to, but it's running at 100fps at 4k with everything on high, so it looks pretty.

The new syndicate thing is just so GGG, what a bizzare add on.

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

The odd thing is I like everything about this league, except the actual betrayal, which is a confusing mess.

The fact that they managed to bring bestiary back and make it useful and fun is good.  Delve is there for all your levelling and off-story needs, the new masters and hideout and crafting works really well.

But for the life of me, no-one gets what the fuck they were trying to do with this Betrayal stuff.  It's like a Nemesis system's retarded red-headed cousin.

Still, putting uniques in the GB as usual for folks.  Whoever dumped the Quill Rain in there, thanks much.

Quill Rain also got mega nerfed.

This is probably the best league I've played. The syndicate "game" is really obtuse. But it's not awful. If you make people friends, the more they come at you together. The more they come at you together the more loot opportunities you have. The higher their rank, the more powerful they are and the better loot they give you.

De-rank them if you're getting your ass kicked.

I like how they did crafting.
