Also, what damage type do Wands do, when used as a ranged weapon? I'm using a wand to shoot stuff, but see no mention anywhere what type of damage I'm doing ... is it just regular physical damage? And are all wands the same in terms of the ranged damage they deal?

I highly recommend downsampling in this game if you have a lot of GPU power. Presently playing at 2880x1800 downscaled to 1920x1200, my cards still barely break a sweat, and the game looks noticeably crisper.

Does anyone know how to make the cursor larger? Mine is so small I lose track of it ALL the time. It's hella frustrating ...

What does the stat 'quality' mean, btw?

And my last n00b question (for right now tongue.gif) does the inventory size ever grow, and if so, when? It's seriously like RIDICULOUSLY small ...


Wands if your using default attach it physical.
No idea on cursor, i loose mine allot by playing with a smaller screen and windowed borderless.
Upgrading the quality means some of the stats will increase, max quality of 20%.
Inventory slots can be brought with micro transactions.


Has anyone also noticed that playing with 2 people makes everything ridiculously easy?

Another huge problem I got with this game is they got no official, established set of rules in place, but got moderators going around muting people and changing names of characters, for reasons the person on the receiving end has no clue whatsoever what the hell they even said or did.

With no official set of rules established, its rather unfair to be taking actions against players. If this is how they want to do business, then I think I'll just play another game.

I'm not a mind reader, and can't know what someone else might see as offensive. For them to change the name of one of my characters to FDSDSTSDS for no reason specified or any set of rules in place is just wrong. And that pretty much guarantees I will never buy any microtransactions or support this game financially.

Let me put it this way, the mods in PoE are just as bad as they are at gamefaqs forums, and I'm sure a whole lot of us have been banned from that place. The difference is at least gamefaqs has a set of rules established. And it wasn't like this in closed beta.

Maps are random like D2. Meaning every new instance you start is going to produce a completely different layout then what you had before.

Regarding the wand dmg. It will tell you on the weapon. All weapons have physical dmg. If your weapon does anything other than physical, it will say so below (ie. "10-20 fire dmg") on affixes. Also, the numbers underneath "damage" at the top of the weapon box will be yellow, blue, red etc... on top of the white numbers to represent the elements.

"quality" can be from 0-20% on any items (armor, weapons, rings, gems, etc). The better the quality the better the item is. Meaning, if you have a gem that is 15% quality vs a gem that is base (meaning zero quality), the gem with 15% quality is going to have better stats and additional affix.

Regarding inventory; You can purchase extra stash tabs. This game is 100% free to play, so they need to make their money somehow. Also, the idea behind the inventory (dunno if everyone remembered original diablo...) was you have to make choices. You can't horde gear like in diablo 3... you have to choose what to pick up if you want to play quickly, or you have to make a dozen pit stops a map if you want to horde gear and pick up everything. I think it is just fine how it is. Technically, the only gear space you need is whats on your body... and you even have an alternate weapon hot key!

I'm sure its them responding to a dozen+ "report player" flags. Also, its a game you didnt have to pay for, and mods are volunteers. People don't realize how many millions of dollars it takes to reach the expectations that people think they are "entitled" to.

It's their game bro. That means, however unfortunate, they can do whatever they want. They can't afford to pay real mods, and given the development thus far, sure 2.5 million is a lot, but not nearly as much as a company would beed to support a game like diablo 3. They prob spent millions on d3 content alone. (i.e. auction house, physics engine, etc).

Anyway, point is no one is perfect. Including mods. We don't know what their job consists of with this brand new F2P game. And the fact they are volunteers should just have you minding your P's and Q's in the game chat anyway. We all know guys like that can get power hungry.

Well that is true, but I don't have to play it or support their game. I was getting ready to buy some stash tabs, and I noticed one of my characters got a name change, and I logged back in the game and I was muted? Nobody even wants to answer for the actions given, no responsibility at all. If this is the kind of game you all want to support, be my guest. But I refuse to support this company any longer. I got told I had an attitude problem just for asking why they put me on mute and changed the names of one of my characters. That was the end of the line for me.

Been playing this for a few days, and have to say 100% better than D3.

Sorry to hear that. And yes that was my point, you dont have to play it or support it, and the good thing is you arent out any money. Maybe the attitude problem thing was a misunderstanding. However, i like that when you report someone in this game, it automatically quotes the last thing they said... so i mean... there is proof... not saying you are a liar, but is there anything at all you can think of that would have warranted a rage report from another player?

I agree man. The only thing that sucks is like chaos' problem he had... is its a small team there at GGG and all the moderators and the little odds and ends jobs are volunteer posistions. They do not have the backing of a multi million (possibly even billion?) dollars of say...blizzard. So to accomplish what they did, in 4 years less time, and on literally a budget of donations... I am impressed to say the least.

Another thing to remember though is that they have support emails up the wazoo im sure, and again, being handled mainly by volunteers... so obviously a bit of haste in decision making or errors are bound to occur.

The game gets a bit frustrating in hardcore when you hit about lvl 30ish, because then its a gear check if you dont have a solid passive build... so if your reading this and your new to the game, think of your first toon as experimental. Start off in hardcore, but if you die. continue that character in default league so you can get used to the passive tree and experiment with gems to find the best build. That way when you start a hardcore toon again, you wont be caught off guard and stuck in a rut. (im currently in one now with my 2h lightning strike duelist... not because of build, but because of gear and supply and demand of skills ATM).

Anyway, the more I play and the more depth and potential i realize is here. And the fact that it is a soft release and still in beta <<<<this is the one thing I hope everyone can still realize. I am just 100% in love with the game.

I do kind of agree with this... Really the wait isnt long tho. One of my previous posts was 13,000! now the que is only as high as 8000 ive seen this afternoon. They are working on adding capacity so can't complain... But I do agree that those of us who supported closed beta etc should be let in before any freebies rolleyes.gif

What was your character name before the switch? The moderating I have seen, I have been completely fine with. I saw one complaint about a name change, his previous name being I Nate Higgers, lol. I am fine with that, and I see them muting people who spam the chat just to spam, which is ok with me.
