Path of Exile

http://www.pathofexile.com/

I've been meaning to make a topic about this but laziness and sleeplessness has caused me not to. Now that this is also on Steam it seems like a good time to make a topic for it. Before anyone gets their panties in a bunch this is not an exclusive Steam game. You can go straight to their site and play it from there if you have some weird problem with Steam.

Now that's out of the way I can talk about the game. First I wanna say that yes this is similar to Diablo but no it's not a clone. Some major differences are it's free to play, emphasis on no pay to win, ridiculously big skill tree(see pic below), leagues with different content, leagues for leveling racing and much more.
Magic and skills are handled with socketable gems that level up(think materia). This allows you to customize pretty extensively. Crafting is handled by "selling" stuff to the vendors. You don't get money you get craft items that can also be used as instant modifiers like "turn a normal item into a magic item" or "change the color of sockets". There are also recipes but it's a little more complex and not worth explaining in this intro post.

The bottom line is it's free and fun. So far a few of us have started playing and I made an RU guild. I hope more of you join while everything is still so new and we can all be on the same level, for the most part. If you do decide to join let us know your in game name so we can add you.

Re: Path of Exile

I played this game in early feb and i really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, when i play something i like, i play it non-stop and it really lost some luster for me. But, i noticed they went out of beta. There are also quite a few more things to do last time i left.

Don't remember my handle. Will update later.

Re: Path of Exile

The game is great. Reminds me of League of Legends, but easier to enjoy in small doses.

Re: Path of Exile

Glad to hear there's more interest. I'm playing in between other games so I'm not on all the time but I'm still very much into it. If you play through Steam or just use Steam in general send me a quick chat message and I'll try to join you if our levels are close enough.

I made a store purchase with Steam funds and bought a guild stash for the RU guild. I'm gonna just make anyone who joins an officer so you can give and take items freely. I trust the RU people not to be shady. If someone decides to be it's not a big loss anyways, it would just be a bit depressing.

Re: Path of Exile

This is on steam? Interesting. I am not on steam. I have a few characters in the 70s. Just started a templar that is around 25.

I need to unload some of my stuff. I hoard.

Tenser, you should if you're a fan of Diablo. Very well done.

My handle is silentvoid. Not Darkestred.

Re: Path of Exile

It was recently added to Steam but you can still play it without that. Basically it was a way for them to get more exposure.

I hoard too. I get some weird satisfaction from stock piling gems and gear I'll never use.

I got a level 30ish(can't remember off hand) Ranger going. Probably spec'd all wrong on the passive ability tree but I'm still rolling along.

I see todayisforgotten sent me a friend request in game. I don't know how long it's been sitting in there but I'm sorry if it's been a long time. I saw no notification something was there and I never remember to look.

It was there for about 2 days. No worries.

Re: Path of Exile

This might be a dumb question, but how do people get to such high levels? I'm level 35 and running out of areas to explore in act 3.

Are there more acts? Is it from people playing on higher difficulties? In parties? Are there more quests I don't know about?

Re: Path of Exile

At level 20 you can beat the game and move on to Cruel difficulty. I believe it has some new items and monsters but I'm not sure. Once you beat that and reach level 35 you can move onto merciless. Once you beat that you access a new area that allows you to access the end game content
Map - Path of Exile Wiki
It's like more zones but you have to find them through the drop system. I hear they pretty much require other players to complete because they're difficult.

Re: Path of Exile

No problem. This is how most of these Diablo type games work. The cool part about POE is the maps, or so I hear. In Diablo 3 you just run the same levels until you get bored of grinding.

Re: Path of Exile

From May 10 to 24th they're having a charity contest with prizes to support Child's Play. All you have to do is make a new character in the charity race league and level up-
  • Level 15: 100x Stash Tab Bundles
  • Level 20: 100x Premium Stash Tab Bundles
  • Level 25: 10x Razer Mice
  • Level 30: 5x Razer Keyboards
  • Level 35: 5x NVIDIA High-performance Graphics Cards
  • Level 40: 8x Turtle Beach Ear Force Z SEVEN Gaming Headsets (Newly Added on 7 May!)
  • Level 50: 10x Sets of all Seraph Microtransactions (Armour pieces, Wings, Weapon Effect and Footprint Effect)
  • Level 65: 5x Sets of Signed Prints of Original Early Concept Art
  • Level 85: 1x One hour private Q&A on Skype with Chris, Jonathan and Erik
It takes very little time to get to level 25-30 so you can easily get entered into the drawing for real tangible items. Just keep moving forward and killing stuff. Anything above level 40 will take some time though but the game is fun so it shouldn't feel like a chore at all. If anyone is interested I'd be happy to coop with you if you can be on around 10pm EST or later.


Btw they also have a cosmetic item made specifically for this event and available only until it's over. It's 5 bucks and pictured on the linked page. Also yes that boss has 3-4 large breasts and at least 3 arms

I just tried it out and I made a slight mistake in my last post. This is a hardcore mode that also has boss invasions from other acts. Don't just keep moving forward killing stuff. Go slow and clear areas so you get stronger and better equip for the next zones. Run from stuff that is hitting you hard, run fast. Get elemental resists asap.

---------- Post added 05-16-2014 at 09:15 PM ---------- Previous post was 05-11-2014 at 01:59 AM ----------

Anyone trying this? I can't get very far solo. Bosses and amped up normal mobs stun me or surround me and I get dead. A partner or two would help a lot. Also the guild chest carries items over even when you die in hardcore so it's not as bad a loss if you store anything you're not wearing.

  • Level 85: 1x One hour private Q&A on Skype with Chris, Jonathan and Erik
It takes very little time to get to level 25-30 so you can easily get entered into the drawing for real tangible items. Just keep moving forward and killing stuff. Anything above level 40 will take some time though but the game is fun so it shouldn't feel like a chore at all. If anyone is interested I'd be happy to coop with you if you can be on around 10pm EST or later.


Btw they also have a cosmetic item made specifically for this event and available only until it's over. It's 5 bucks and pictured on the linked page. Also yes that boss has 3-4 large breasts and at least 3 arms

I just tried it out and I made a slight mistake in my last post. This is a hardcore mode that also has boss invasions from other acts. Don't just keep moving forward killing stuff. Go slow and clear areas so you get stronger and better equip for the next zones. Run from stuff that is hitting you hard, run fast. Get elemental resists asap.

Anyone trying this? I can't get very far solo. Bosses and amped up normal mobs stun me or surround me and I get dead. A partner or two would help a lot. Also the guild chest carries items over even when you die in hardcore so it's not as bad a loss if you store anything you're not wearing.
If you aren't, already. You will need to use a ranged spec. POE is notorious for nerfing melee.

Re: Path of Exile

You expect an update that will nerf melee or did you mean something else?

Re: Path of Exile

Close-ranged combat classes suck in POE.

Re: Path of Exile

I disagree I've played a few melee characters and I like it. Maybe it has to do with how bad each persons ping is? I hear people saying that melee is unplayable for them because of desync but I barely notice any lag.

Why aren't you a part of the RU guild? It's pretty much just me and I don't play a lot but you gotta start somewhere right?

Re: Path of Exile

Have you played the later levels? Especially with reflect? You're toast. I know there are one or two viable builds but they are totally depended on gear.

I havent touched POE for quite some many months. Not sure i want to go back until they add the new act in. Even then, i'm not sure I have the motivation to play again. Got pretty worn out playing it over the past 2 years.

Re: Path of Exile

Nah I haven't been too far past the middle of cruel difficulty. So you're saying Marauder and Duelist are basically useless beyond the first part of the game?

Re: Path of Exile

No. Not entirely. The problems you have to look out for are the bosses. On Merciless you will run a very high chance (unless you have high hp) of being one- shotted by the butcher and other act bosses.

The torchbearers will destroy you if you aren't careful, especially when they are in groups.

It's not a very fun class when you choose the path of close combat as you progress. And if you like group play, forget it. You will need very good gear. While doable at times, you will get frustrated. I mean i suppose it would help if i gave myself more hp but it would still get frustrating.

Ranged its where it's at. I had a pretty nice shadow with uhm spectral throw and lesser multiple projectiles.

Re: Path of Exile

I tend to play solo so I stack as much armor, hp and resistances as possible. My dps suffers but I think it's a good trade off. When I have grouped up I've been criticized for my dps but I also last longer than the ranged/magic classes. I feel like a decent tank. I'll have to push further and see how it goes.

I think I stay away from most ranged because I feel like I'm so weak if enemies get close or surround me. I did have a lot of fun with the ranger though but I also traded all my evasion for armor, wore as much heavy as I could and made it so I did lots of damage up close - so not very traditional archer type.

You should log in and see if they changed much since you left. At the very least you could make a character in the charity league and get entered into the giveaway.

Re: Path of Exile

POE is getting a big update soon. From what I hear they're adding a fourth act along with lots of other stuff, including summonable golems(I'm super excited) and changes to the gameplay like making melee more viable. If anyone is thinking of playing this game or getting back into it this might be a great time for it.

I started playing again recently because my brother got his PC back and for the first time I actually got to the highest difficulty. It's kinda embarrassing after playing it for like 150 hours but I was having fun making new characters in the leagues and hardcore. The RU chest is stocked with uniques, gems and other goodies for anyone that wants to join us. I only ask that you return stuff when you're done with it so other people can use it. Feel free to add stuff too but make sure it's good because space is limited. Let me know if you want a guild invite. Anyone who was already invited is still in.
