go away! this is my thread for beta key groveling!
Anyone else had any luck with this game yet?
I still find myself checking the beta key lottery but to no success..
Managed to score someones account that doesn't play it anymore So it is downloading now \o/
Ohh you lucky lucky man!
How is the game? Let me know what it's like!!
Keep us updated, game does sound like it has promise
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
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.
wtb beta key
offering: sexual favours
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
that's exactly what people should do.
ED: just got an invite, win!
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
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?
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.
I'm still hankering for a beta key...
Got one! *dance*
First person to pm me can have a beta key..
There's a new Path of Exile forum that's been set up as the one that is officially hosted is a bit lacking.
Anyone with a spare key floating around much appreciated
Groveling on my knees for a key.
Looking spectacular and love the art style.
