also, in the forest, there's a guy with a sword that constantly regens hp, how do i kill him? am i too low?
Bandit quest is all up to you. If you kill all 3 and turn in quest, you get 1 passive tree point. If you are melee tank, def go with the +40 health tho in normal mode. The 8% resists is meh. Not really anything special... and I never really played a caster or what not so don't really know how good the mana option is, but im assuming it can be significant. I always go with either +40 health or the passive point tho.

Your second question; Yes. You need more dps if you can't drop a health regen affix.

Like the gun you probably covered most of it I read everything you said a few times thanks. I just need to play more as I figure it out its clearly more confusing then wow and d3 and many other similar games I have played tl1+2.

I hope I enjoy it love the free game concept because I truly feel developers just care so much more. Look at LOL another game I play.

Anywho thanks if anyone wants to recommend a build out to me that would be great only lv3 Templar have no goals yet just trying to figure out gear it's confusing because it just tells you a number yet doesn't explain how much evasion out of 100 percent you have or how much damage reduction does your armor do... If I'm wrong my bad but I have looked at my stats to figure it out.

Question... As a Templar do I want evasion or armor I have a few items that seem identical just a trade off evasion vs armor... Seems as a Templar aka a holy knight type mindset is want armor but I really don't know otherwise ill just vendor all my gear and hope to find some nice things. I have a yellow dagger in my offhand already and mainland mace to get the bonuses on my attacks.

Depends on your build. I have a passive that turns all my evasion into armor. So I want the one with the highet combo. For a templar, and where you are in the tree, I would say you generally want armor or a good combo, but not compromising armor for evasion.

Ok thanks I know the two near identical items one has red gem slot other has green both solo. I only have three red gems ATM in other gear so I can't use greens or have no interest in them ATM. Do I literally just find gems as I play or are they quest rewards I don't even recall how I got the first three.

Not even that, just a paltry 8% elemental resist (no chaos resist).

For templar, assuming you don't plan on going CI, you want armor/energy shield or straight up armor.

Here's my build right now for a level 32 templar:
http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgUABVuExERyQDYjTbT58B-iAASzgW-ePE3YjHYyiVfid-XsOBo4p4SQVcAaZp6plVFgGjKAVk99-tIdFEw1KMXzvo9G0NCboWe97m8=

Here's what I plan to build up to:
http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/AAAAAgUAhMREcgVbi4zhc-0gRtdANiNNtPnwH6IABLOBb548TdiMdjKJd-VX4uw4GjinhJBVKU-Cm8AaZp6plXB9T32AVlFgcU2az0NjtzFY9Z3E-tIdFEw1KMXzvo9GNunjaiSq0NCboWe97m_PZVXGFm_krd7BGYUUTQJx44LnC96wGjI=

From there you can decide whether you want more defense or dps for future nodes. This is for my sword/shield templar although I kind of want to make a staff templar now biggrin.gif.

As a mid lvl character, I think im at 43 right now....Should I be trying to sell my rare items I don't need. To other players I mean, not to npcs. Just seems like most gear I see for sale is higher lvl stuff so I don't know if its even worth it or if I should just dump it off to friends and npcs.

^ You probably should just sell or give it to friends. I was holding on to rares that I do not need and it filled up my stash real fast.

Also, I still have these if anyone wants them.

Is there a link that shows me the ideal skill path/weapon/gem configuration for high dps ranger? I feel like i'm doing no dps playing sidebyside next to my friends firemage.

I have one bow with split arrows/cold/lightning dmg/faster arrows, another bow with lightning, fire, physical/crit/projectile arrows, and poison/exploding arrows on various armor. removed wave of arrow since i felt the damage wasn't high enough and am using other gems (Cold snap, aura that increases cold dmg and aura that increases piercing probabilty and knockback likelihood)
