I'm usually too tired of PoE by the time I make a try to any boss. This season I bagged Searing Exarch, Eater of Worlds, Shaper, Cortex and Sirus for the first time. Might try Uber-Atziri or even Uber-Elder if I can be bothered to get the fragments.

Focusing on those Kirac Atlas nodes really pays off if you play casually (or as casually as a PoE player can play).


New league starts this week. This league's new thing is giving weapons passive trees, and apparently every skill in the game can be hugely affected through these passives. It sounds cool and might make for some really bonkers builds.

I kind of miss PoE after playing the D4 beta so I'm giving it a go after skipping like two leagues in a row. I'll be playing on my Steam Deck so I plan on doing something relatively easy to play, Toxic Rain Ballista.

I had some Zizaran vidoes come up on my YouTube feed where he talks about the new league. I started watching them, but realized I'm just not in the mood for this now. :D (Even though I've been playing Drox Operative the last few nights which is also a loot based ARPG.)

I'm sure I will get lured in again where I play a league obsessively for a month or two, but for now I'm good, I think. :D

If you need a ARPG palet cleanser, try Minecraft Dungeons. It's not complicated or anything. It's just visceral click killing.

Last Epoch is getting better and better.  New patches have just released if you want to scratch that ARPG itch, but don't want to go down the POE rabbit hole.  But not yet out of Beta.

I want you to panic

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.


I'm in maps, and I like this league.  The league combat isn't interesting, but the weapon passive trees are fun.  I don't get why they didn't allow uniques to have them.  Most builds do better with a good rare than a unique anyway, and this just reinforces it.


Oh, I guess there's a way to get a unique weapon passive tree, but it's for endgame.  Which means you'll never use it for anything other than endgame uniques and leveling uniques are left in the dust.


Barely 20 minutes into the PoE 2 reveal and goddamn it needs to get here now.


Yeah, PoE 2 already looks really, really good and they still have a year of development to polish it.

Diablo 4, despite the big sales numbers early on, already feels stale. It's clear the years of development setbacks and the rush to release it this year hurt the game. I'd say it needs at least another year of updates to catch up to what GGG is presenting for PoE 2.

I know they say they'll maintain PoE 1 after PoE 2's release, but I don't see myself going back unless they do a serious revamp.  Even then I estimate that getting through the huge number of ascendancies in PoE 2 is going to take 6 or 7 leagues based on my most active period in PoE and how many characters I created.  Practically it's likely to be more like 9 or 10.  That's what, 2-3 years before I'll even think about going back to PoE 1, I have other stuff I want to play too.


The stuff they showcased looked great.

A slower paced game with a more "Dark Souls" feeling. Less density, more meaningful combat with lots of dodging and combining different abilities.

I can't see myself going back to PoE 1 either. Especially since I suspect a good part of the reasons they want both to be separate is to rein in power-creep, which would make both games cater to two very different audiences.

I'm really tempted to play the next league as well, after not touching the game for over 6 months. I've always enjoyed Blight, but that full tower-defense keystone is a dream come true.
