The new Build of the week video
That's a sweet build,ranger specializing in shields with lightning shield and molten shell and a totem with detonate dead....just wander into a pack and watch them blow up.
Played my mates account, Amazing game the character customization is just incredible.
Yay, patch 0.9.11 is nao!
from CMD Im getting 150 instead of 300 which is great.

Can't say I enjoy the new skill tree. Very... directed. Feels more constrained and delays quite a lot of builds. :/
Sorta feel GGG is going back on their word to create a hardcore focused game.

Also which bow?
I have 3 unique bows for trade and many other unique items....
My inventory is rather poor IMO but still getting use to items as currency and im only lvl 16.
The skill tree is what gets me the most, all those options!
I had no idea each class had their own skill tree as well.
Ranger is on the right with all the Dex bonuses
Witch is up on the top with Int bonuses
Maurader is to the left with Str bonuses
Everything else thats inbetween is... well inbetween
Havn't seen it mentioned but characters from the closed beta will be reset to level 1 upon it hitting open beta, The only benefit we get is names reserved.

Anyone knows approximatley how long it'll take to get into closed beta?
Getting to the stage now though that it may not be worth forking over the cash unless you really want the pet kiwi as it is supposedly going open beta sometime in august...maybe a bit longer if the have more features they can squeeze in without taking to long.

once you've hit level 10 ish though your free to go wherever you want with your build
The addition of weapon swapping is rather nice. Always felt that was a needed "well duh" feature. However. I really, really dislike the new skill tree. Starting off a new character is so painful!
Not to mention the new tree broke some of my builds to point of unusable unless I gain ~5 extra levels and 73 regret stones to respec afterward. Kinda soured me from playing the game as I can't. No, I actually can't use some of my equipment or skill gems now. And again, I have to gain 5 levels out of thin air somehow.
Even with the closest gear set to my original gear; I lost ~800 DPS on my flicker strike, 16% of my resistances, 25% of my armor, %7 of my physical mitigation, 4% of my evasion and 10% movement speed. -_-
New tree is too restricted, too linear. HATE IT.

Keep in mind it is beta and they do plan on apparantly focus on the end game. Give your input to them on the forums their actually a great team and take part in communicating with their community, I was talking to Chris briefly the other day.
I would give them my input but im only lvl 25 atm. Personally for me I find the tree better being a typical "Archer" build the bow abilities were moved in closer for me.
I already gave feedback on the new tree. Been in the beta for months and months now... feels like a year almost. I am aware of how this works. ;p
Technically, I can create a more powerful build than what I would have originally. Though the build is not viable for several levels due to passive delaying.
The weapon swapping is amazing and I can imagine how great it is for melee being able to have a sword and board and then a dps set to switch throughout a fight and even just to use another ability due to the socketing.
How is the marauder? Im yet to try it but I made which is ready to go as soon as I get bored of my Necromatic ranger shadow.
May have to go with an intended build tho because I see it falling off further into the game. The bow abilties are very close but what its lacking is survabilty which im getting from Energy shields and the talents to improve that are just out of reach. Melee is easy but Ranged will most likely be a problem later on.
Might make another shadow and go claws...
