So they killed the right side of the tree for good now by removing lots of life but gave a few Bino's buffs.

I'm confused.

Not sure if I'm gonna play this league. If I did, I would do Bino's build, but that's not exactly possible if you can't play a Shadow.

Hey Lark, remember how I told you how I was going to die?

Well, I got to Ledge in cruel, came across a rare box, ID'd it, saw the freeze, and for some stupid reason figured I could flask my way through the freeze. Rip.

So while I was wrong about dying to an unid box, I still died to a freeze box, and it's much worse, because I knew it was a freeze box and still opened it.

The worst part is I died really slowly. Slowly enough that I hit escape, had my mouse over "log out", then panicked and accidentally exited out of the menu instead of logging out, and then still almost managed to log out again afterword.

This is why I don't hardcore.

I realized that my build wasn't going to work out anyway, which kinda ruined things for me around the time I got to dominus.

Ye.

I'm just running a braindead arc witch on softcore because I can't be bothered to try to figure out a build with the current state of Shadow and I just want something I can build up without playing PoE like it's a second job. Decided to give hardcore a shot now that they've removed a lot of the burst damage by making it so things like packs of goatmen and rhoas can only damage you 1 at a time. It didn't work because I do stupid things.

Trying to keep things under control given that I have less discipline than a meth head and have to still have to do work 3 days a week.

Oh shit I didn't realize yall were using this thread haha. Well that's a bummer man, fucking freeze boxes will do it. I haven't considered trying to log out before death, but I think I just get too cocky to the point where I'm convinced I'm going to live up until the very moment I die, hahaha.

I've lost three toons in hardcore now but last night's death hurt the worst, particularly because I could tell the build was actually going to work (you know, if I didn't play stupid).

Two shadows in their 40s dead in act 4 norm both running blade vortex - way too squishy of a build.

And last night's death was my 59 non crit arc templar in cruel. Was stacking crazy amounts of hp nodes. Died to a ghosted teriskakriai or w/e that fucker's name is in koam's area - the unique rakango thing. I almost had him but that fucker was pumping out some hurt.

I bet the mapping process in hardcore is stressful. I just flat out wouldn't even attempt some bosses, which sucks cause I know a part of me would be pushing me to rush in and do it.

Anyways I'm getting on now to roll another HC toon. Bladefall witch this time w/ Vaal pact. The new support controlled destruction is freaking tits for making non crit spellcasters since it uses the More dmg modifier instead of Increased. Gonna link that up with conc effect. Should be a heavy hitter.

I really like it, one of my favorites. But I suppose it depends what you're into.

Son of a fucking bitch. Finally got into mapping on hardcore with my new build. Shit was absolutely rocking. Non crit arc templar. Arguing with my dad while I was mapping, not paying attention and RIP on the three boss fight in the Arena map at level 75. That's 5 characters dead in hardcore. Taking a break.

i'm actually pretty excited waiting for the download to finish. there's a lot of new things and they are exciting. stepping away was a good move i think, the poe tolerance break seems to have been a success in more ways than one. didn't know how much i missed playing this game at least in the context of a few maps a day until just now. gonna casually play a ranger and just enjoy relearning the game. =)

It's over a month in, so I'm sure whatever economy-breaking exploit that they've added to the game has been revealed by the noble streamers and the economy ruined for regular players that aren't so blessed to have discovered the exploit. If I'm right, then that means we're within 2 weeks of them announcing the end of the leagues and effectively killing off whatever player base remains.

I'll feel more inclined to grind it out again when they can guarantee me that a league won't be abruptly ruined by some flawed decision-making by GGG and when they can guarantee me that a league will be playable for more than a month.

tl;dr: Still salty about the stupidity with ghost busting and not fixing what was obviously going to be a problem before the league started. Also still a bit salty about the metacrafting decisions. Salty about 3 month leagues after a major release because they fucked up the economy so bad.

so, this league is actually pretty good. not quite as good as ambush but its definitely a similar feel. started a day behind but already got my character ready for maps comfortably and working well on my way towards picking up a kaoms and 5 linking my bow. playing ea and its pretty cruise

i bought a tabula for like nothing with these coins u get as drops and sold it for 20c was great

i also bought these nice gloves for 8 chaos and they have an enchant from the ascendency maze shit that shoots out like an arctic breath style nova chilled ground on hit. so its like having a free chill ground cwdt its pretty sick

Coward's Trial.

Remember how I wanted to stick to one build the entire league?

...yeah

So, what can I do now that involves a 6L Shav's, Skyforth, and (probably) a Void Battery?

I'm thinking Ice Spear + CoC + something to give more pack penetration. I would either do a Shadow for the crit ascendancy or witch for prolif ascendancy. Just my first thoughts - I have no idea what kind of builds can be done now.

I fully anticipate selling my vuln helm for some serious loot... probably enough to cover the Void Battery. My one totem jewel will easily yield 2 ex+ if I can find a buyer.

Edit:

This also might mean I'm going for 100 this league. Depends on what kind of build I can do (if it's playable to 100) and if it will constantly need upgrades (I want something to continually upgrade so I have reason to keep playing). My problem with what I have now is even if I traded the Skyforth for 25 ex, there's pretty much nothing I could do to make my current build better.

Alternatively, suggestions on a GG Mara build are also good. Preferably taking advantage of the fact that I have a 6L Carcass + 25 ex boots + 3 ex jewels + 4 ex currency.

Edit2: Is there a such thing as a low-life bow build?
