    That's like 10-15 minutes tops. For all of them.

    Really? Because Elreon alone would be at least 3 minutes just of his fucking timer. You're telling me you're doing each of 36 missions in 20 seconds? I don't buy it.

    Elreon's longest timer is 1,5 minutes (wait for the mobs to spawn, so you can kill them all). If you get the "destroy the relics" mission, it's over in under 10 seconds.
    Haku takes around 1 min tops - run towards the ancestor, then back. Sometimes, just back.
    Vagan takes 30 sec tops if you're unlucky and got the dummies. Otherwise, it's a 1-5 second affair, depending on the shittiness of your build.
    Tora takes from 10 to 60 seconds to complete, depending on whether you got the cave or the packs scattered around the mini-area.
    Vorici can take up to 2 minutes. Sometimes you get a shitty layout+mission, so I can't blame anyone for not wanting to do it. Vorici's main value is getting to lvl6 for the fuse deal, anyway.
    Catarina can be a PITA, and she has the biggest mission time variance. 1-2 min on average.
    Let's count: 1+1+0,5+0,5+2+1=6 minutes to do the non-Zana masters, the generous amount. Can take longer is you're an autist, or much faster if you're lucky.
    The rest is for Zana.

    Ah, you meant for just doing your own. I thought you meant for doing 6 of each in a party the way people grinded them out. Throw in the time waiting for people to piss and smoke and pick their nose and you'd be looking at an hour of that shit, which is a fuckton of time for someone that only plays maybe 2 hours a day to begin with.

    If you're just doing your own dailies, doesn't that take weeks to finish like that anyways?

    Parties would take 5x time of going solo and grant 3x the exp. Worth it if you're poorfag but want the unlocks ASAP.
    People with money would simply buy up the "a master seeks help" + "a gracious master" prophecies and grind maps hard. This way allows to brute-force master exp, and you'd be getting lvl8 masters in the matter of hours, while doing the mapping. But it was pretty expensive.

    On the effort required:
    Level 6 unlocked like 95% of crafting mods for most of the masters. You wouldn't need the rest (the "remove crafted mod" and the meta-crafting mods) unless you are hardcore PoE sperg. And if you are, then you wouldn't complain about the leveling masters, because you'd simply go ahead and get shit done.
    Keep in mind that you're still getting masters in maps, and even t1 map master was equivalent to lvl7 master mission in terms of exp.

    From my experience every league:
    I'd level my masters to lvl5 solo, only then I would consider doing rotations. I would do rotations when convenient to hit lvl7 with key masters (elreon, catarina), then stop doing rotations and only do solo missions.
    Lvl1->2 required 2 missions while leveling story mode, or 1 map mission.
    Lvl2->3 required 2-3 missions, or 1 daily, or 1 map mission.
    Lvl3->4 required 2 dailies or 2 map missions.
    For me, lvl4 masters would be unlocked by the time I hit maps, or soon after. That's 2 days for me.
    Lvl5 masters would be unlocked in another 2 days after that.
    Lvl6 masters would all be unlocked by the end of the 2nd weekend after the league start - 9-10 days, basically. At this stage, I would have access to the most important mods.
    Lvl7 masters would be unlocked in a week after that.
    If I cared about lvl8 masters at this point, I would get them by the end of month 1 of the league.

    I don't get why you need the crafting unlocked to begin with. If you're trading for stuff anyways, it's a waste of time compared to just buying shit. The game is set up so gear is hyper specific, which means for every item you find that you can mod slightly to make useful for yourself, you'll find a dozen you could sell to other people, and buy a better version of what you were trying to craft.

    What exactly is so important and hard to get? What trillion chaos per second recipe am I missing out on?

    Apparently. Is running with a full load of rare veiled focus mods the new meta or something? Because anything not veiled seems trivial to unlock. It even tells you exactly where to find the recipe, not that I'm going to be scrambling to get that sick +12str/dex mod any time soon.

    Get Maw of Conquest or stack chaos resistance and life. You can also get Mind Over Matter or use ES with Corrupted Energy or Shavs if you want. Solaris Lorica will also double as a discount Shavs and also gives you a 25% reduction to chaos damage over time taken. Using a vaal legion timeless jewel of Xibaqua also lets you turn a keystone into Divine Flesh which will give you a solid +10% boost to maximum chaos resist (and convert 50% of elemental damage taken to chaos, which can be paired with Incandescent Heart to make it 75% total).

    New League announcement:

    https://www.pathofexile.com/blight

    Aside from the new league mechanics, which are a god damn Tower Defence and I dont understand much of it, I love the change to master missions. You can now collect them for later and they stack really high. So you can collect like 100 of Einhar missions and then open them one by one on a map of your choice for a whole weekend of Brockback mountain fun with Einhar.

    So they promised a raider rework, so far we see only minions, mines, assassin(how pointless).

    I feel tower defense might be really terrible. Sit and wait while a timer ticks down is not quite Poe at its peak. Deterministic amulet crafting is nice though.

    Both playstyles are slower to clear than many others, especially new Slayer Cyclones. This is what they are buffing because as devs said: "if your build is not clearing fast, it is a bad build."

    It is not much different than Breach. You activate the thingy and sit around the middle and kill shit as they appear and wait for (invisible) countdown timer to run out.

    What's the deal with these cat eyes? I get flashbacks from Kevin Sorbo's Hercules
    or some X-Files episode, when they encounter invisible predator with glowing eyes

    more comfy control for miners?
    yes

    Any sort of casting will only slow down minions best clear for them seems to be physical + speed, you rush with horde trough packs.
    Anyway looking at the trailer I dunno wtf they are trying to do

    Yes, we need tower defense! Because there was clearly not enough shit happening on the screen already.

    all this tower defence makes me think that poe is getting rdy to come to mobile

    EDIT: i like this infernal legion support gem... I wonder what is radius. If its large then potentially you could run single burning torch golem?
