Not really public shaming. It is a ladder, it is a competition.
Most people are pretty cool when someone dies. Chat is filled with "GG" / "RIP" and stuff.
The game is designed for you to fail. Death is always an eventuality. It's just fun to see how long you can last. Hehe.
Since there's more people playing in softcore than in hardcore(I think), it'd be bad for it to be visible when ever someone died in hardcore to be visible to everyone, since the softcore people wouldn't really understand how bad/etc it'd be for an announcement like that to happen, and the player that died would have a lot of frustration I imagine, I probably would.
So yeah, that means it's good that only the people playing harcore can see it since they understand the person that died better and won't really make fun, but then again, I don't know how it works atm so it's just speculation or anedoctal evidence or wtv it's called. xD
And I'm babbling, again. :p
So is Act 3 the end of the game , so to speak? the last act? Just finished the 2nd today.
Nice. I'm liking the challenge so far. Came close to dying lots of times and died a couple of times , from a guy that froze me on act 1 in a Medicine box quest, and to the lightning shooting skeletons in Act 2 , they were paired with a Necromancer, which made things harder =p
Oh ill never reach level 100 ahah, im not that skilled tbh, only managed to get kill maghda in Diablo 3 Inferno , and it was painful (relatively speaking) enough to reach her.
I do find these games very fun, see how far i can get =P

Omg I love this game
Friend linked it to me a couple of days ago and I've not stopped playing since....
being my typical OCD self I've mapped out a rough build I'll be using, all you PoE pros mind giving it a look over? just to make sure I've not made any REALLY stupid mistakes.
it's meant to be a Dual sword duelist, fairly tanky, lots of health and armor, while keeping some nice damage ta-DOW!
One point I'm already unsure of is "Unwavering Stance" it says "Cannot Evade enemy Attacks, Cannot be Stunned".... So does that really mean I can NEVER evade with that ability? Seems kinda... Harsh, even with Iron Reflexes to turn Evasion into Armor, seems like it might not be worth it, just for Stun Immunity. Might shift it into "Armour Master" for no move penatlies from armor.
Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.
Stands in front of 100 enemies with 10% health left "Myeh, I'll save my potions for when I REALLY need them." - every rpg player ever.
How are you guys finding weapons? I'm level 30 now and I'm using the same claw/sword from level 20.
There is a currency penalty for doing zones too low. A lot of people play the game and are "over level", so to speak, without realizing. Then they say things like, "I have no problems clearing such & such."
Ideally it's like Guild Wars, where the tougher the mobs you can take on the greater the chance of items. I don't mean clearing a lvl 8 area at lvl 2 is better. But clearing a lvl 8 area at lvl 12 is less optimal.
This may not be the case for you, personally. Though can be a source of lesser drops for some.
Quick question but does Flammability and Elemental Weakness stack?

When it comes to the cash shop, are the items you buy during the beta put back into your stash after the final character wipe?
