It's moot now, that was last league.

I still wouldn't.  I have stash tabs and stash tabs devoted to items that MEAN something to me.

That would be one of them.

I'm still not feeling this league.  Have little to no enthusiasm for even logging in.

I started playing this for about an hour last weekend and I have no idea what I'm doing at all, which is fine. I made a templar and I'm jacking around with hitting things.

Anyone happen to have a Tavukai I can borrow? I can't afford to buy one just yet.

I'll keep a look out. To think that item was vendor fodder last league. I would have been able to loan the chaos for it, but I spent myself poor last night, and my gear still sucks.

I haven't played too much this league so far. I'm still trying to get my first mapping character going.

With the new league mechanics, my summoner build was level 70 by the time I hit maps. I'm usually in the low 60s.

Still don't like the tower defense, but it's tolerable. Except the blighted maps, fuck them.

This league more than any other I'm getting the same uniques over and over. Sure, Jack the Axe is great, and I'm using long after it should be replaced, but 2 of those and 4 tabula rasa seems excessive. Wish another 5-link Belly would drop.

I love the towers while leveling. Exp is good and helps you roll content even more.

I was enjoying the Tower Defenses but I think I'm just burned out with the leveling experience. Made it to Act 3 and just said fuck it, went back to Minecraft. I wish we could pay to start at character at 60ish with all acts completed and just enjoy endgame.

I decided to try a golem elementalist that uses ignite fireball. Rolling well through leveling. Will proceed to discharge  when I get a few Ex.

That spec does seem kind of nutty, given just how hard the golems can buff you up.

The poison assassin is going well and not going well at the same time. It doesn't feel great. Sure it clears trash with ease, but it has limited defenses, low health, and really wonky gear setups. The recommended gear is all over the place and you can fall into the trap of having too many uniques, which shits on your resists and health pool. No real clear choice between dagger or claws. The top tier dagger bases are rune daggers, which makes crafting them kind of stupid. The gear upgrades are going to be expensive as hell too.

Still, I am 89 and doing most content fairly well. I might just go through shaper (if this guy can do it), and then reroll to something else. Could always try claws.

Looking at exploding SRS or divine ire totems for my next guy.

I had a spare 6 linked Soul Mantle, so I went with that variant.  But it's a minor change and Divine Totems truly hurt.

Adding a -15 to socketed attacks chest to my build helped everything feel a ton better. No more "out of mana" spam and feeling awkward when I have to hit a mana flask in the middle of something because I wiffed on a few attacks. New mana flask suffix is pretty awesome, however, and is just about infinite mana. 6 link with decent life ended up costing 3ex.

So, newly broke, I ended up having some kind of stupid luck. Fortress Covenant and a 2 jewel Tombfist dropped like 3 maps apart. Also, I only was able to afford the chest due to 2 exalts dropping earlier in the evening.  why so serious?

Guess I'm not getting anything more nice to drop for the rest of the league. Pondering keeping the Tombfist and see if it fits into any builds I've been eyeing.

I'll do my best:

New body armor. Helps with mana. Cost a lot.

Later that same evening: Found a popular necro unique jewel. Found valuable unique gloves. Woo.

Unique gloves not sold yet, might be good for a build.

.................

I know way too much about this game right now. Good thing is that I'm still pretty awful mechanically and don't play efficiently.  Thumbs up!

I'm having fun with a bladestorm/retal gladiator build, hadn't tried a max-block all phys build in ages. Quite fun, and robust. Sucks even worse than frostblade for towers though.

Poison dude build would have one shot red elder if I had remembered any of the mechanics at all. Sadly, standing in the big tentacle stomp thing is kind of bad for you. DPS is pretty good but there's a fair bit of ramp up. All of the build guides for this are pretty trash. The top delver using cobra lash is doing a cold based build (for shattering I guess?). I've read complicated builds from people that have since switched their characters to cast-on-crit cyclone builds (way to have confidence) or from all appearances have not played a poisoner at all.

Still, this league is disappointing in one major area for me: blighted map drops. I think I've been able to do a grand total of 4. This character is lvl 92. It's been mapping since 70. It's killed the Betrayal mastermind, done 2 temples and is on the "kill shaper" portion of the atlas. 4 total fucking blighted maps.

Otherwise, I like the mechanic. I like the blighted maps. I hate, however, getting to Cassia and getting the same batch of clear/sepia oil. It would be like killing a Legion general and getting no fragments at all. It is a nice source of lesser currency. I've not been starved for alchemy orbs or chisels at all. That's a first.

Shaper down. All deaths were me using a travel skill into a shaper beam. So, easy build, even if you're a shit player.

Don't mind the mana flask; it isn't needed at all. Better daggers would require multimodding, so, too expensive for now.

You can get cobra lash at level 1. It's pretty viable off the bat as it has built in chain. Lesser and Greater Multiple projectiles will help you clear. Use Herald of Agony as soon as it's available. You'll scale out of it later. Mana will be an issue, just be sure to have flasks for it. Plague bearer will suck early on, but it will help with rares/bosses.

Passive tree is pretty easy. Just follow what I've got there except don't pick up the weapon specific passives until you either want to go daggers or claws (you don't need to, you can kill Kitava without choosing). Claw/shield is also an option. Use whatever unique/rare weapon you can get while leveling, but when a Wasp's Nest or Bino's Kitchen Knife is available, use those.

Ascendancy: Noxious Strike -> Mistwalker -> Toxic Delivery -> Opportunistic.  Bandits: help Alira.

I found a ring a few weeks ago with -7 cost on it and mana regen. Works perfectly.

I chose daggers because I had some shitty ones lying around. It's works decently well, just not as good as some other builds right off the bat. I'll level up some more.

It's also pretty easy to just get a mana leech node toward the bottom right of the tree. I got a lot of the stuff around the start area for shadow and the damage did pretty good. DPS on bosses and rares can be a bit crappy until you start scaling poison/chaos/dot damage. I could toss some leveling uniques (claws/daggers) in the guild bank.

I've got two bleed daggers right now. I just hit 32 and probably need to upgrade them because they are probably not scaling.

I will say that I absolutely love how they've changed mapping.  Having all those activities not cluttering up maps and being something you buy into is GREAT.
