    Duelist isn't any worse than other classes if you don't get stuck in their horrible starter area. Like if you go immediately left or right from either starter node, you're okay for the most part.

    Hey Fencers, any opinion on the following Duelist build?

    http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-s...4CcRRSZU0YkbT5

    Decided to give shield a whirl as it seems to make a lot of areas almost a joke for incoming damage, but as a melee Duelist, would it be preferable to focus on dual wielding in the long run and instead stacking dual wield block?

    Looks good.

    Though consider my revisions: http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-s...MpLhRN8B8CcaIA

    Yes, I posted the long arse link. Deal.

    Just started PoE and I got one major question to ask.

    Please tell me the Endgame stat setup isn't like D3 aka Stack crit-hit/crit-damage with ether LoH or LPS.

    That was one thing that got really annoying. My first toon I kinda want a tank setup aka High hp/Defence so i can just stand there and beat mobs silly.

    Or a Duel Wield type of toon.

    Also to add I plan to play softcore for awhile until im use to it then maybe hardcore.

    It isn't.

    There are no "best" stats across the board other than life. Tons of life because the endgame is throws more damage at you than you can handle otherwise.

    In hardcore, crit is fairly well frowned on. As it is common to kill yourself on a crit due to global dmg reflect on the mobs during endgame.

    D3 is set up for you to win, eventually.

    POE is set up for you to lose, eventually.

    That's good because that is one thing I really hated in D3.

    PoE seems fun figured I would play it until Marvel Heroes and Neverwinter comes out.

    Seems ether I'm going to make a Marauder or Duelist first.

    Edit: Besides the huge amount of damage near the end like you where saying is there any major bugs or would you say its a smooth beta so far.

    Not saying that damage is a bug.

    Last game I beta was down right bad even to this day "not saying the game name don't want to game bash" so beta's kinda scare me now. lol.

    Pretty smooth. Nothing too major for bugs. The devs patch and hotfix pretty quickly.

    Desync with fast movement skills is still an issue. Probably the longest ongoing issue. Supposedly it is worse European servers than North American servers. Though I only heard anecdotal claims to this effect. I play on NA and it happens to me from time to time. No idea how bad it is for European gateways.

    Occasional disconnects. But they seem to be less & less now that the servers have "settled"

    Other than that, pretty enjoyable. 100%-no-bullshit, free to play.

    awesome. I did a "http://www.systemrequirementslab.com" check to see if I could run it decent from what it shows its min-requirement is really low "p4 processor" 2gig ram ect...

    So in your opinion how well do you think my setup will run it.

    My Computer Spec Is
    Motherboard: Foxconn A74GA
    Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
    Processor: AMD Athlon(TM) II X2 B22 Processor 2.80ghz
    RAM: 6GB DDR3 PC3-10600
    Video Card: Sapphire AMD Radeon 6450 1GB DDR3
    Resolution: 1280 x 1024.


    Also to add how fun are the boss fights. That was the one thing in D3 I did enjoy I just didn't stand there and hit it until it was dead I had to move and dodge things a little and some having different phase's was neat.

    To add I do plan to get a Quad core processor sooner it later but it will be awhile before I can.
    Also like making videos using fraps.

    I don't really think I can help you with system spec stuff. If you can run D3 you should be able to run POE though.

    Playing in parties might suck for you though. The spell effects are flippin' nuts. Can't see a damn thing.

    Boss fights are okay. This isn't really an ARPG with an emphasis on bosses. You mostly farm general mobs/areas.

    Bosses have rather simple mechanics. Not too interesting. Toughest is probably Vaal Oversoul, but its just a lot of dodging really.

    Think Diablo 3's boss fights are far more spectacular and intricate. But that's just my opinion.

    Decided to go ahead and try an ice spear witch..ice spear is OP :P
    i was expecting to have trouble with Brutus purely down to the amount of movement you usually need unless you are a bit tanky but once you get a good crit on him with ice spear you can keep him at a distance and just spam it...even though the freezes don't last long on a boss it's long enough for the next one to land.
    Next stop Merveil...so how she likes her own medicine.

    I wonder, would discharge be a good 'oh shit' button?
    As a elemental wand shadow, I increase elemental damage by quite a bit, and gain power-charges fairly easily. I wonder how well it would work to get rid of for example flicker strike enemies.

    Alternatively one could use warlords mark and ALSO get some endurance charges...however, that would mean I wouldn't be able to use elemental weakness...
    Hmm...decisions decisions (:

    Ah, thanks, I hadn't even thought of going that route to get that last ball of HP, I kept thinking it was just barely out of reach.

    Alright alright

    20% Faster attacks
    20% Added fire damage
    Final piece of the puzzle is weapon elemental damage which is at 11% then my core gems are done :O

    GCP's are annoying to get -.- nobody wants exalted's!

  15. #2555
    Have anyone tried a combo with the Righteous Fire gem? Its seems like a nice gem but also seems to be a gem that needs to be together with something else

  16. #2556
    It's tough to use Righteous Fire. Need a lot of fire resistance and a build geared toward the use of RF. Not really the sort of gem to use on a whim. Need to build around it.

  17. #2557
    I have 80% fire resistance and I tried to use RF and I still died faster than mobs...
    Win and live. Lose and die.
    Rule of life. No change rule.
    Running worse than losing.
    Random casual stuff now

    So a 72 map and my crew got

    - Unique boss deals 30% more damage and cast faster
    - Also adds 2 multiple projectiles
    - 17 minus RES

    Pietry is the end boss for the temple and she 1 shot every single one of us haha and they all have GG High end gear that wasn't very fun xD

    Wow i see. The gem just seems so dangerous in a fun way if there were a way to build around it
