    Speaking of Unique items, I found the Unique Lapis Amulet, Stone of Lazhwar on my first character pretty before I could ever use it. I'm not sure what it means when it says 50% of block chance applied to spells.

  3. #1723
    It means you have a 50% chance to block spells with either a shield or dual wielding.

    Spells normally can not be blocked. Spells always "hit", so to speak. Some unique items and talents allow one to block a spell if eligible on the roll.

    Ah. I was assuming it meant that it applied to spells you cast, so it didn't make much sense.

    Ofc Im aware that I will shatter some mobs but I think with so many mobs around corpses are not problem. Also I really like the ice spear for single target and slows are always nice. Could this work in HC?
    I am doing an ice crit build and I noticed that most ice witches use pulse. The reason for this is the scaling. I do have both specter and zombies, and though I haven't taken Lord of the dead and the nodes around it, they do moderately well until end bosses. End bosses pretty much wipe out my minons very quickly.

    My main abilities are cold snap, freezing pulse, firestorm (for aoe), and freezing pulse for the crit bonus. I would definitely check out the main forums for build ideas as well. It is very active there.

    Anybody know a good shield build/elemental damage build for templar? I'm getting awfully bored since I only played dual wield for probably a hundred hours and I wanted to branch out into something else now that I have shit loads of skill gems

    This one works: http://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/57355

    I tried in closed beta on a 67-ish Templar I re-rolled. The build can be rough to start. Would strongly advise you follow the author's path advice exactly. Where applicable, of course. Just use your brain to account for cbt/obt differences.

    Because if you hit the dead levels on the way EB mid to late game, the build will be incredibly painful & frustrating. The flipside is that it actually works and pays off. Even in endgame.

    Haven't done a shield build as effective to level.

    One other caveat, gear. Any build that is based around heavy mitigation will need a higher gear threshold than other builds. Such as ES+CI builds, 1h/Shield, pure evasions and so on. They all need very good gear to be as effective.

    There are also a number of Ranger and Shadow shield builds. With the 1h/Shield Shadow being very effective all around. While the shield Ranger is one of the toughest builds around. Much trickier to play generally.

    Got a weapon that is 5 sockets total. 3 are linked (B-G-R), then 2 linked (R-R). Worth?

    Got an armor that is 5 sockets and only 2 are linked (RRB, G-R). Worth?

    Should I use my own Orb of fusing on either and try to get all 5 linked or is that just a waste of my orbs?

    Had a fun fight with Oak today. Ran out of health pots and had to kite him around that tent, LoS'ing him every so often so I could through down fire traps.

    im sorry but can you not respect a low budget game that has done incredibly well? would you rather a 10 million dollar game? if so go play D3

    never use any orbs at low lvl if you are at low lvl except for transmutations alterations and augmentations and maybe chromatic

    using fusings on a 5 socket base white item is totally not worth it, you have to use about 100 fusings to get it 5 linked and the max socket is 6 and if you do get a 6 link and use it the mana cost on abilites would be sky high

    Sigh.... really frustrated with the constant dysync issues and unexpected disconnections.... All I want to do is play the game...

    makes sense. is it worth to trade for? I was reading that potential 5L/6L are quite expensive (voidmoon video I believe)

  13. #1733
    5L and 6L are expensive. Super expensive for 6Ls.

    5 and 6 sockets, unlinked is whatever. Like you can buy that from the vendor.

    Although 6 sockets, linked or not are still worth while. 7 jewelers at a min.

    Yup, Vaal is all about knowing how to dance, too mmo-ish for my taste.
    Prefer hard cockblocks like siren.

    The game is currently in open beta, how is this going to work when they decide to release the final version of the game? will we lose our characters/progress?

    Woot that's great then I might download the game. How does this game compare with D3 and Torchlight 2?
    Sorry I know these questions have probably been answered 5000 times but its a pain to read through 87 pages.

    Pohx is an amazing streamer. The most helpful poe streamer out there. I hope he gets a lot more viewers, guy definitely deserves it.

    Thoughts on the idea? Reminds me of lineage 2 trading with open stores. I think its a good idea, something between an AH and trade chat.

    Entirely open to personal subjective opinion and comparing games is unlikely to end well as you have big fans for every single game :P

    For me when describing this game to friends, I've told them it's closer to D2, to the oldschool ARPG not the newer breed of ARPG. Of course if you've only ever played D3/TL2 that's not going to help.
