Path of Exile

Anyone checked this game out yet?

Their passive skill system consists of over 1000 'nodes', it has a very 'diablo 2' feel, yet retaining it's own style, quite fun, it is actually in closed beta currently, but a 10$ donation will get you a beta key+ingame currency

send me a message if you'd like to play some, really quite a fun game compared to diablo 3 :P

above is correct, it is closed beta currently, open beta is january 27th or something like that

when it is released it will be free to play, 10$ is the minimum and that does get you into the beta, higher amounts get other items, such as a kiwi ingame, and ingame currency which currently can be used to purchase extra stash slots and character slots

i'm about to stream again if anyone is interested in checking it out

very impressed with this game so far

feels more like diablo 2 than diablo 3 did

you can level gems, which have abilities, pretty cool

the talent tree is massive and pretty awesome

you carry health vials and mana vials, that refill on their own when you kill mobs, and you can use them in combat to heal up, or mana up as required

very awesome so far

not for everyone thats for sure, this is marketed towards D2 lovers

graphics are very good

controls are smooth, animations are better than I expected, music is pretty good

feels more like a real world than Diablo 3 did, social aspect is dfeintely better than diablo 3 was

the zones are 3D, meaning you run up hills down hills, etc... not everything flat like diablo 3

running thru grass actually moves the grass, this game will be great

there is no gold! you trade with vendors and players!

all entertainment is time wasting

flasks in this game are awesome (they are used to restore health)

by killing mobs flasks regain charges for healing you, in addition flasks offer perks like regular items!

in addition flasks can remove chill affects and other things/special features, very cool!

very impressed with this game so far, can't say enough

I played the beta before Diablo 3 came out and it (understandably) still had a lot of bugs so I put it aside. It definitely looks good, but I think I am going to wait for the release.

so far I haven't seen any bugs

my only critique would be the animations are not as smooth and crisp vs. diablo 3

and diablo 3 play control is still probably tighter overall, however

the premise, flask/mana jar usage, gem/skill leveling, grouping, skill tree are all better than diablo 3

when you get an item in PoE it matters, unlike Diablo 3 where you grind to buy your shit off of the AH

As if we don't have enough options already.

Path of Exile enters OPEN BETA January 24th, 2013!

All characters from Closed Beta will be wiped.

Open Beta characters will never be wiped

played this last night, and I initially wanted to play for only 20 minutes... 1.5 hours later!

this game is awesome, they have already improved some animations from when I first started trying it

the true successor to Diablo 2

FREE TO GET, FREE TO PLAY at launch

a must play for any Diablo 2 enthusiast! that means you Saviouss!

This is not a lobby game like Diablo 3 or Diablo 2.

This is a one world game, where you can see other players in Towns/Cities.

When you leave town you enter your own World instance. And if you are in a group, then your group shares the instance.

just awesome, the community is much better than Diablo

Can you mix builds? I thought that was awesome with Titan Quest.

I think the massive talent tree (like 400 nodes) does allow for something of that nature, but not 100% sure

if you look at the talent tree, you can do whatever you want

that being said, spells/abilities are all based on 'gems' that are placed in your items, so as long as the socket is the proper color, and you have the required str/dex/int you can use ANY spell/ability in the game

I was looking over the talent tree/nodes last night

and correct me if I'm wrong but it appears every class shares the same talent tree

however, each class starts at a different location on the tree that makes most sense for the class

as a warrior I can start grabbing magician traits, if I branch over far enough and get to that area

right now I'm specializing on 2H melee weapons

not going to put too much time into the game however, until open beta, when wipes are done
