    Got time to play through to level 10 last night.

    It is still very much a beta, with integral features missing (like selling to vendors).... but combat is pretty polished. Lag wasn't a gameplay issue, but it was noticeable when melee attacking fleeing enemies.

    Skilltree is pretty daunting, but I think hardcore diablo players would love it (I only played d1&d2 offline in SP many years ago, but I did enjoy them).

    The whole interface and accessibility side of things is pretty average, and I hope they don't run out of funding for these sort of things and have to push it out as is, because most casual players will get frustrated with the lack of guidance. Once I realised that finishing the second quest wasn't actually supposed to give me a third, and I enjoyed just running around exploring n looting, which in turn had me happen across that third quest :)

    Just when I was about to shut down my computer to leave for work this morning, someone came in to the path of exile IRC channel and pasted a key... Luckily my suddenly racing heartbeat wasn't enough to slow me down to slam that baby to my account page and activate beta :)

    YAY

    Now I gotta wait till I get home to crank it up :)

    Got into this beta. I really like this game and I think if any of you guys end up hating D3, you'll find a home here. The skill tree is quite interesting, especially the way they branch and meet. The socket system is quite cool, but can gimp your character (if you don't have the right socket). You can get around this with items in the game which "re-roll" the sockets/stats etc., but it doesn't always work well. But the bonuses you get from them are, simply put, crazy.

    In other news, I'm up to 17 on my marauder :)

    Had two awesome yellow 2handers drop within about 5 mins of each other too >.< Everyone says cleave (axes) is better than ground slam (maces)... but I like maces for some reason :(

    it's good

    bit of network lag (enough to kill you sometimes with rubberbanding)

    most of the glitches are graphical, makes it look a lot uglier than it really should be

    and when more features come out
    woo


    monster scaling is a bit harsh though

    go from 1 area 2 shotting hordes of mobs, to the next being 2 shot by a single one.

    Finished both acts on my Marauder, to start Act 1 on the next difficulty. I'm not sure if I can be bothered without new areas to explore and monsters to smash :(

    Who's still playing? :leet:

    I got half way through level 30 before I died in HC mode.. when I died I literally felt squirmish in my seat knowing I can no longer return!!! Oh well.

    This game is great.

    A new update coming out maybe next week, 0.9.3, and the changelog is absolutely epic with lots of awesomesauce all over it.

    Far too big to paste here, check it out @ http://www.pathofexile.com/news/2011-09-30/dev-diary-patch-0-9-3

    Also an "update" on the 0.9.3 release @ http://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/10326

    I'm not playing anymore, gave the account back to its OO so he can continue to share the love with others :)

    I'll be interested again as it gets closer to release.

    Hi all,

    There's a new Path of Exile forum that's been set up as the one that is officially hosted is a bit lacking.

    Looking spectacular and love the art style.
