The new league starts in a few hours so I thought I'd advertise the /qa/ mansion guild here in case anyone wants to play it. We're around 6-7 right now, but I have enough guild slots so that we can accommodate pretty much the whole /jp/ spinoff population that still plays games (upper limit of 30-ish if I'm assuming generously). The bulk of us are going to be playing on softcore-ruthless so I'd recommend doing that too if you want to reap the benefits of a shared use stash. But, anyone that just wants a bunch of free space can join to use it in normal/hc too. We have a good deal of space https://files.catbox.moe/b6cox8.jpg so poor NEETs can enjoy the convenience of paying without needing to spend a dime.

So if you're interested post your userid or character name ITT if you want me to invite you, we're fine with anyone that's not a complete subhuman.

What is Softcore Ruthless? Does PoE have a nice pet/summon class that is still fun to play like a D2 necro that can equip a golem or have a bunch of expendable skeletons? Or maybe something gimmicky that is weak unless you do crazy stuff?
Is the customization I've seen real or is it more of a superficial thing that pools people into set roles?

The customization is real and very rewarding when you're able to make something you like work. Although the barrier to end game normally lies within understanding all of the game's systems to finally make the build you were going for work (or just finding something online someone else made that works). When it comes to minions they are really fun to play and I'll probably be playing one of them myself since it's easy enough to set up (specifically a variation on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E56zfUXJxQ ). But there's plenty of different endgame viable builds that are centered around buffing up minions, and since they are permanent summons until they die they're quite convenient to use too. The only times it gets tricky are when you have a build centered around specific spectres (raised enemies) or equipment golems (raised armor/weapons) and they die, but that rarely happens unless you're careless and/or take on something too hard. Normally you die before your high quality summons do and they persist through death. The best part is that it isn't really bound to a single class, any class can have a minion build (although some base classes are certainly more preferable than others). There's also a bunch of different gimmicky stuff that can be made to work and the devs actively encourage people finding different wacky fun builds, like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmKf_bgtknM .

And softcore ruthless is just a slower version of softcore where build progression takes a bit longer than normal because of item rarity.

Despite the wariness I had towards playing ruthless, I think that it's been pretty great so far. It really feels more like a new game going through the campaign than just going through the motions like I normally do. The lower droprates are more akin to D2 where stuff you pick up actually matters instead of needing a loot filter from lvl 1 because of the abundance of gear it gives you. The slower nature of gearing also leads to a more challenging (and fun) experience going through the campaign as well, since it's more like you're playing the game and not running through checkpoints before eventually reaching the actual game.

The new league mechanic I still have to see more of, but it's somewhat interesting. Probably need to wait until I'm stronger to take it on and win more often so that I'm able to figure out if it's good for getting currency/tattoos. My current build is just too squishy to really do much at the moment, so I need to figure out how to improve my survivability which will probably be a bit of a pain to do in ruthless.

Aside from all that stuff, we're slowing using up space on the ruthless guild chest and we organized it a bit so that we can locate stuff easier, but I sincerely doubt we're ever going to be running into issues with space at the rate we're going, especially if we start clearing out inventory to get rid of the kuso rares. And also a reminder that if you want to play but not on ruthless the guild chest over on standard still has the same amount of space in it and is probably more open because we're mostly playing ruthless.

Ah, that's a cool pet item. I'm glad to see games create more interesting summonsing effects. The "chance when hitting a Unique" is a really nice idea so stuff that otherwise requires an enemy death can still be used. That's long been a problem in games and forces you to either invest in skills you otherwise wouldn't use and/or keep another set of equipment that you change into for bosses. Good quality of life thing there and kind of makes me want to play...

Is Ruthless the name of an expansion or a game mode?
Kind of surprised to see Grim Dawn that high. I liked it for a while, but eventually I just completely lost my enjoyment somehow. I can't really describe why, either. The last time I played I was in some neon radioactive-looking environment for its expansion and I liked exploring it, but then it turned into some mutated forest thing and that's around when I dropped it.
The great thing about Titan Quest and Grim Dawn is that I can use third party cheat software to reset my classes. Shooting a monster with a bow or gun isn't as fun the 10,000th time, so I reset everything and my character is now a rogue that uses traps and poison. 10k kills later he's now a wizard.
I just can't enjoy being the same class forever

it's a game mode, makes it more interesting by removing some OP mechanics and having aura skills/skill supports be drop only
i just start a new character if bored of the current one, the journey of leveling up and slowly becoming powerful is fun for me

SPEAKING OF the new league released and also more content was revealed for PoE 2, like how you're going to be able to use WASD controls to move your character if you want to which is fucking boson. The more I hear them talk about the characters the more I'm curious about how the skill tree(s?) is going to look, since they keep saying with classes that they do X and not Y, but that's not really true in the current game since any class can do anything pretty much. So I wonder if there's ways that the new tree will make it so classes are even more segregated. In a way that could be cool, and in other ways not so cool.

Also affliction seems like a lot of fun, I'll be rolling on standard league this season (after a bit of raiding in WoW) so if anyone wants to try it out in like a week I'll be there to help.

After several successive hours of flipping kingmakers on the market at a profit ranging from half a divine to 1, I was able to finally reach the medium-budget endgame position for the absolution build I'm running. I tested out my new prowess by opening up a t16 and running a breach only to die when I got surrounded by enemies so I learned that I'm not quite invincible yet.

Soon enough I think vermin's going to start playing and he'll probably play an actual juicing viable build like that kinetic bolt one and with the funds I've secured it can probably be built. Then we'll have magebloods for everyone on /qa/ after like a day of trufarming.

I think I'll take a small break now to eat food and exercise and watch anime after I sleep before going right back to the perpetual grind.
