    I'm still a little unsure if I'm going the right way about my gear choices.

    I'm playing as a Shadow with bow, using split arrow+cold, fire trap, poison arrow and puncture.

    I'm not extremely fond of evasion as a defensive mechanism, I much prefer energy shield. So I've been using as many energy shield gear pieces as I can wear given the int requirements. However, I've been spending my passive skill points almost exclusively in the +dex side of my tree. So I'm afraid that sooner or later I won't have the needed int required to wear higher lvl energy shield gear.

    do you mean that the art and environment is sad feeling wise or sad as in pathetic? lol, kinda confused
    Hehe I know that dark and gritty doesn't mean it's poor art, take a look at Warhammer Online, for me it's great and dark, for others WAR is poor:P But I love baroque, that's important. I love Disciples art, it's amazing. POE has "minimalism" dark, I need Baroque dark fantasy art style, like Warhammer or Discilpes (sometimes Tera) or at least Gothic fantasy (Diablo II, dunno if D3 is like that too), the rest is dull for me. That's what I want! I wan't best gear to be sickly decorated, so I can easily see who is wealthy and "the best". This is why I felt bad while playing Act II, I even had to play D3 a little becasue of PoE's Act II Btw, I mean "sad feeling wise". Music of the Act II is the saddest and dulliest music ingame I have ever heared. Act I songs, especially city music, was great.

    For me Act I was great:P Dunno about Act III, havn't been there. Hopefully it is like Fencers has presented it

    Diablo 2, Durance of Hate:





    Path of Exile, Lunaris Temple:








    Love the sound design in Lunaris Temple too. The creepy music, the ominous groans, the screaming / wailing of tortured souls in the background. The drip and slosh of blood.

    Intense stuff. That's how it felt going in to Hell or leaving Pandemonium in Diablo.

    I really enjoy the darkness and claustrophobia of Act 2 in Path of Exile. It has elements of Diablo 2's third, fourth and fifth acts; dank jungles, ruined catacombs and underground passages beneath the earth.

    This game is spectacular in the same atmosphere of the original Diablo games! *


    * Honestly, if I could still see Diablo 2 clearly I would play it all day long every day till I die. Probably my favorite game ever.
    Me too!! D2 forever! Hopefully I will get to the Act III fast, but still I will have to deal with that Act II on next chars and higher difficulties D2's Act III was dark, it was a sick jungle with ton's of mercilles and abberrant fetsishes and that trees. It had that daemonic forest atmosphere, which I love. And here is another fact, why PoE is poor for me: Act II feels like going back in time +100k years and fight cavemens...not for me, never.

    Let me the this right, if the mobs had been other than half naked jungle type men you would be fine with it?

    And not all of Act 2 is jungle, to be fair I spend very little time in those parts my self while leveling as I hate the poo flinging monkeys with a passion.

    If the mobs have been other than half naked jungle type men, I wouldn't be fine with it, because there are still those monkeys trowing poo or stones. This is, at least for me, beyond me and very infantile and uncreative. But for each to their own, one may say the same about my Baroque dark fantasy:P

    Fair enough, I shall just take in to consideration that you are very specific in your needs as a player.

    You are just searching really Looking to find things that don't agree with you. Which is fine. You don't have to like it. Monkeys throwing objects, so infantile, would never happen in real life :P

    Yes, I am searching bad's of this game:P There must be smth I don't like! Some booring motives like monkeys throwing the rocks happens irl, PoE is "realistic" game, it's ok, but ehh, I need daemons, undeads, all this shit running at me, fetishes using darts and spears and so on:P Not apes and if apes, they should be 'used' by those fatishes somehow:P I liked those Act 1 tentacles and undeads, thats was cool. Oh well, Chris Metzen can satisfy me:P

    The act II areas in POE are supposed to be, erm, "wild" for lack of a better term. The barbarian tribes of Wraeclast partially overthrew the once decadent empire of Sarn. It was tribes like the Karui that survived the empire's "fall". The loose tribes that make up Act II are assorted wildmen/bandits and beasts that have retaken the dank interior of Wraeclast vis-a-vis the ghoulish cannibals of the southern coasts [where exiles are dumped] and the aberrations of the northern hills where the Empire of Sarn lays in ruin.

    You sorta are going "back in time" in act II of POE. Its the island at it's dark, primitive heart.

    Just providing some lore/game context why it is so in Act II of Path of Exile. Whether you like it or not is of no relevance to me. Not interested in changing minds.
