Its worth paying and getting full beta access, game is great due to the customisation/specialisation

Only part I really dislike is not being able to cast spells while moving. That sucks. Other than that, win.

This new class called shadow is rather meh actually... I'll play some more later.

Hehe you went for hardcore? I thought about it but meh. My question is I wonder how much replay-ability it has after you have been everywhere.

I'm encouraged by the fact that the areas are fucking MASSIVE. I've been having a hell of a good time with it so far.

Lvl 23 at this point.

I've started up a new shadow after thinking of a hardcore build focusing on evasion and 1h claw+shield and some other shit like grabbing all life nodes and soul drinker. Ingame is Boytoy, added you

instagibbed for the nth time.. evasion pretty much sucks until now... I've been playing with a bow with lightning bolt as AOE and it was going smooth until that enchanted totem boss mob which sparked me to death in a single hit... rrrrrright. :(

I am playing a templar with armour/energy shield and spec'd out for staff usage and fire damage.

Going pretty smooth for now. Nice AOE and good single target damage (until I meet a fire res boss)

I'm a witch, specced into int and elemental damage. For the bosses I can generally close with them, freeze, then shock and firestorm the shit out of them. Just got a new skill that gives enemies -30% to elemental resistance as well, so it's pretty bad ass.

I can't tank worth shit though, but I have some incredibly good armor/weapons, and it's helping a lot. I picked up some armor that has 129 armor, I about shit myself.

Similar, but imagine diablo2 didn't suck. Enter Path of Exile. Better graphics, awesomely huge areas, extremely unique item creations. I'm thoroughly impressed.

I dunno... TL2 is more addicting than PoE right now. Lost the 6th character on HC, this time on normal instead of elite... :(
This is what happens when you become a little too greedy
