    Unfortunately it's not that kind of game.
    Cosmetic gear is the least amount of pixels for your buck , in other words with everything happening on screen the way a character looks is barely noticeable.

    Add to that the fact that town are not social hubs like their MMORPG counterparts.

    Makes cosmetic not as attractive.

    That's what I plan on wasting my money on, and I probably will buy right two stash tabs, the ones that cost 150 points, two of those I think.

    Really needed lol.

    This ain't WoW, Miss Lysah.

    But yeah, it would be kinda nice if there was something like that.

    Listened to an interview a couple days ago with a podcast show in NZ, and Chris Wilson touched on this just a bit - part of their current plan is aggressively adding new cosmetic, pet, and other such vanity options to the store.

    They will also be (soon-ish) selling real life merchandise, like the soundtrack CD and T-shirts (and hopefully other clothing items like hats, jackets, or hoodies) for real cash.

    Time will tell how the store evolves, but they definitely plan on adding more things to buy.

    Tbh i would consider doing a sub for PoE but they would need to get payment options outside of the US before i would...don't like paying the bank extra just to convert digital currency.

    Thats a volentery sub not a mandatory sub btw

    They will have to come up with character skins, spell skins (please help me get rid of the lousy zombie summons. How about making them into black skeletons ;( The ones you encounter later in the game, ACT III (or perhaps even AII)) and good cosmetic effects, but since there is no never-ending champion development as there is in LoL, it might be hard to actually make money off of this game. But I'll tell you, if they would add premium subs, This would be the game I would spend it on.

    Actually, now I think about it, if there's not a thread already, I will make it, on the forums.

    As I've said a long way back in this thread, I think the coding on the game is piss poor, but the game is good.
    I'm curious as to how you know the coding is piss poor and why you think this? I don't mean it as an attack or anything like that, but it was only one person to code the whole game and well its bound to not be as optimized as say a company with millions of dollars and lots of programmers. I mean I've seen some glitches or bugs here and there but please show me a program that is bug free. The game seems to be coded pretty well for one man.

    Guy doesn't know what iLevel is, how to check it and replies with, "I use it on my marauder bitch".

    Welcome to my ignore list you scum of the earth waste of humanity.

    For some reason I thought of you and your hatred for the intellectually disabled when I saw this statement in global chat. :P

    I feel like there should be a forced, 30 minute tutorial video for some of these people. The whole game is explained using small words so that they can understand it -_-

    If they make it through that, then they might finally get access to global chat.

    One day it will just be me, talking to me in chat. Perfectly okay with this eventuality.

    Is there a limit to how many people can be added? I tried to find my ignore list and there doesn't seem to be an option to view/manage it or I completely missed it.

    Can't view or manage the ignore list. Why would you?

    At what point would Sally Standsinfire transition from the person who asked "what is the gem that shoots sparks called?" to being someone off your ignore list?

    If there is a limit, I can't even imagine what it is. I have been adding people to IL since CBT over a year ago.

    Now I'm so confused, first we get the ability to have basically unlimited storage space and now you claim that we can ignore as many players as we like, what kind of sorcery is this...

    Quick question from someone who just downloaded the game. How is difficulty done in this game? Is it similar to Tl2 or more akin to Diablo 3? I tried to look it up but found nothing, maybe I am missing something? or is there just one difficulty with zones that vary in difficulty? For now all I have heard of is cruel difficulty and apart from that I can't find any real info

  19. #1919
    Normal -> Cruel -> Merciless and the same three acts for each difficulty, there are random end game maps on top of the normal acts once you get to that level.
