Might get PoE instead of D3 O.O - Page 5

post #41 of 53
Massive just to be massive? So because it’s not stupid simple and very limited like Diablo its massive just to be massive? It allows you to build a truly custom character, not a cookie cutter character like in Diablo. Perhaps you don’t like thinking or planning ahead?

It’s a good design, it allows you to select some of the higher % skills and leave the lower % skills alone, if it was a simple click button lvl up then you would be stuck with what’s next in line, I bet you would also complain about that as well. . . A few of the skill tree’s have different ways to approach skills, you can avoid the small skill boosts or take a shorter/better path around them and go for the juicy ones, then come back later and get the smaller ones as they do add up over time.

I love D3 but this skill tree is far superior to anything Diablo has. . .

one of the flaws in the skill tree is that you can build a pure str build witch biggrin.gif and a pure int build shadow biggrin.gif there really should be SOME flavor to each class... as of right now, the class system is completely arbitrary and meaningless. i mean you can have a perfectly viable warrior that does nothing but nuking biggrin.gif

I don’t see that as a flaw, more like freedom to do what you want. If I want a witch all jacked up on steroids and speed swinging war hammers and rocking plate armor then so be it. Being able to make a character any way you want and not being limiting down a one way rode makes this game truly unique in a good way. I’m sick of the one way path that pretty much dictates what I will do weather I like it or not. . . Give me my roid rage witch!biggrin.gif

You have the ability to do that if you want; but if you look at the passive skills closest to the witch's starting point, you'll see that very few of them are strength. Your only real path for building a strength-based witch is to make a beeline for the very center of the tree, where you can spin out into any branch you want. Someone starting closer to the strength-based skill section (duelist or marauder, for example) will be able to match your witch's strength with fewer skill points invested. And that's the beauty of the PoE skill tree, in my mind; each class might excel most in a certain type of build, but your templar doesn't have to be the same as everyone else's.

Diablo 3 seems more streamlined. Is that a good or bad thing? Diablo 2 seemed more mentally involving.

i'm just saying, there should be more "flavor" in choosing your class. as it stands, it feels very bland... it's like the class itself doesn't matter. almost like how gender is in other games.

Contrary to the popular opinion, I absolutely adore games where the only thing limiting what you can do is what attributes you level up. This is why basically my favorite MMO ever was Knight Online because the biggest thing limiting you was what stats you assigned your stat points to.

If anything, I'd personally like it to be even more free to the point where I could limit myself to exclusively one stat and be something like a pure damage glass cannon mage that dies in one hit from a single anything or a very tanky mage based on just spamming skills and not caring about what i get hit by almost ever.

As it says on the site you can put 100's of hours into making him/her/it better. The only + i give D3 over PoE is it does have more loot. But, PoE has a lot too, so it's all good.
After playing PoE this weekend it will be the 1st and possibly the last beta i am ever going to actually buy.

and this..

got PoE and D3.. PoE feels better since i played d2 alot. d3 is different. not that grimy anymore. sure graphics and scripted events are nice but thats it.
d2 feels like just another game to me compared to d2. sry dont wanna cry about missing d2 but somehow the game lost its soul.

the jump from d1>d2 was big.. but good. was like advancing the game making it even more fun.
the jump from d2>d3 was like if ya played the piano and then got your fingers cut off frown.gif

I think some people are on freaking crack. PoE is the most boring arpg I've played in years. Yeah it does look pretty for an arpg but the movement is slow, the environments are boring and it just feels like it drags on and on and on. That was just the beta to, no way I could force myself through that entire game.

The skills that everyone harps about is just a whole lot of filler with a few solid skills too. W/i a month from launch their will be perfect cookie cutter builds that show you the best way through the skill tree.

Diablo III is way better, it's like night and day.

i´m not on crack, tho sometimes i wish i would tongue.gif ..do not speak like that, i understand what you try to say but this is no good argument.. like the part with most boring.. this is just your opinion and the words u use makes it appear as it would be the final judgement. like i said, i understand what you are trying to say..

did u play d2 quite alot?
