    Hmm, how likely am I to get a 6-link from fusings? Was thinking I'd buy a bunch and see how good I can get it

    The odds are thin, watched a guy waste 318 fusings today trying to get a 6 link. Saying that though, you could get it with as few as one, in the end it comes down to how much you like to gamble.

    Time to give up making an ES based witch, the disadvantages are just to many which is to bad as it's enjoyable to play otherwise.

    What pitfalls are you running into? I'm looking at running this frost witch build.

    The stun mechanics is based on you life, even as CI, hence you're at a disadvantage as far as mobs hitting you, mostly an issue with jumping mobs (what killed me this last time). If you go CI you have no defense against puncture nor non chaos poisons, just have to pray that your shield is high enough. If you don't go CI your life is so low that chaos damage is lethal to even look at, unless you try to stack both shield and life which begs the question, why not go life stacking in the first place?

    Now on top of this your armor is non existent unless you compromise yet again and go hybrid armor pieces hence you have little to no physical resist. The only conclusion I can reach at this point is how inferior ES is compared to high armor health stacking. And I lost 6 characters trying things out, 3 over level 60 with the highest being 67.

    Think I'll chill in scrubcore for a day or three while I plan my next character, might try the same style but health based instead, at a quick glance I'm forced to drop some DPS doing so though.

    Yes, well, here's to hoping they give a way to do full respecs. I personally like to try out different builds on the same class, and I'm not about to start shelling out money for more character slots + spend the time to re-level another character just to try them all out. Respec points are good for when you accidentally pick the wrong skill, or just want to change one or two around. I can understand not wanting to give us an easy way to completely respec, else the game would just become 'ok, what's the flavor of the week?' where everyone is the exact same spec as everyone else at any given time.

    I like the MASSIVE skill tree, and the ability to test different builds from everyone else. I just hate the fact that you can't scrap a build and start over.

    Every player gets 24 character slots per account. So one can create quite a lot of builds before ever hitting the slot limit. Doesn't seem a valid concern really.

    1-click respec would be sorta cheating. No matter though, POE does not aim to provide a casual player experience in it's game systems.

    No.

    GGG said they are "reevaluating" some of their stances on loot. Until then it stands as it ever was; GGG want looting to be shrewd and cutthroat.

    I heard that GGG is looking at retooling the Duelist's skill area so it's not as bad. Any truth to that? I don't see what's wrong with it, to be honest.

    Yes, they are looking to make it stronger.

    Kind of a complicated answer why it is so weak to start Duelist. Basically it costs more points for less benefit than all the other trees.

    Cool. Anything to make my facebreaker stronger.

    Wouldn't mind the respec, either. >.> Not that I really need it, though.

    I'm happy full respec isn't in it from the base. If they add it to the store, good for them, but I like coming up with multiple characters and getting them to the point where it is viable myself, instead of going for an OP build between level 1-60 and then switch to a build that's OP from there on. That has always been an issue with respecs. Just like Leveling in WoW vanilla as a protection warrior..something I did, but many just went arms (or berserker, cant recall) and paid the respec at the end. To me, that's taking the point out of the game.

    On the other hand, I wouldn't oppose a dual or multi-spec principle, but I guess that would take away the point for the devs to sell character slots to begin with.

    Well, GGG have said they are thinking of adding a full respec option for a large amount of currency. It was in the Q&A Chris did with Kripparian. Mostly a convenience gesture as a wealthy high level character can full respec as is currently.

    So that is on the "maybe" list floating around GGG just like player set loot rules, permanent always-on PVP realms and gender swap for classes.

    Tbh i have no problem with them putting an item in the cash shop for a 1 click respec if it was priced around 10 bucks...i wouldn't buy it but there are many people that would(probably qq that it's so dear) but would they rather restart their character to get the correct build or spend 60/70 orbs of regret?

    Been noticing that the ice spells and effects seem to cause desyncs when you have faster monsters running about.
    Even worse is ice arrow and arctic breath cast by either the player or a monster seems to cause the game to pause...some with summon skeles...makes me wonder if the servers have the same hiccup when those spells are used would explain some desyncing.
    Also seem to get it when moving about through tight areas and the game derps on which path to go...seem to desync shortly after.
    And of course there is the fast movement.

    That would affect the in-game currency of Orb of Regret's, if they did that, something which they've said they'll never do.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    What I hate is that enemies will pushing past, ignore, or just get stuck in and start twitching... about 20 minions.
    They will ignore 20 zombies and skeletons punching their face because they want to chase you.

    Its so fucking annoying.

    Yeah, it's rather annoying. Have you tried using a spell totem with skeletons? I felt that it worked better in protecting me from the baddies.
