    Since Last Epoch was mentioned a few times in this thread, would anyone recommend that game over something like Grim Dawn? Been looking to sink my teeth into an ARPG and these two seem to be the top recommendations these days (POE has too much autism for my taste).

    It feels different but Last Epoch is amazing, especially when you set the game to 2x speed via SpeedHack.

    Just because the order comes from the East doesn't mean her place of birth matches that.

    And you don't really need to look at the concept art. The middle version is the official model, if I am not mistaken:

    Try Grim Dawn then. It's an excellent finished game.

    Last Epoch is great as well, but also early access.

    Last Epoch has worse optimization since it is still EA game. But its skill tree and options seem better than grim dawn.

    Both games have limited level scaling, i.e., scaling in some kind of bracket depending on the area.

    Although I think in case of Last Epoch, the (unfinished) campaign has no scaling, so it's only parts of the endgame content that scales. If they didn't change that recently.

    They are scared shitless of another Dota debacle. :lol:

    They would be better served trying to get dupers and cheaters under control but they best they could come up with is the SoJ Diablo Clone event.

    Duriel moving his claws into the ground to speed himself up and hunt your ass down has always been one of those great unsung animations.

    One of the best bosses. No grand evil speech, says one concise sentence relevant to where you are at in the story as he immediately attacks you with no mercy.

    The more I read and watch about this, the more I remember how I got disinterested in mid 00's.

    Launching that update with Enigma and all the "high-end" runewords was a jump the shark moment for the game. Solo was always a challenge. My single player barb with self found Arreat, Stormshield, and Grandfather will always have greater value than some chump's high-end character decked out in perfect rolls. I remember playing with optimal party members for effectiveness, like a barb, a zealer and a werewolf with Heart of Wolverine and a summoner necro with skellies, CE and amplify damage. Or, say, a vengeance paladin with conviction, an elemental druid and a sorc. 1.09 was a completely different game. 1.10 made things interesting because synergies felt fresh, it allowed things like skeletons, holy shock or holy freeze be legit endgame choices, while things like Enigma and BOTD felt like high end, long term goals for less than 1% of players.

    Nowadays the game has respec, every player and his stepmother has weapons with shittons of damage, anni and torch, cta on the second weapon slot, and people have half a dozen auras coming out of their asses thanks to runewords. Blizz just caved in to botters and dupers and implemented crazier and crazier runewords and content so the duped items would be used. What's the point? This is without even getting into all the post-launch bullshit Activision will feed people. Which they will.

    :negative:

    If I ever feel a terrible urge to play DII there's always D2DX and other mods.

    Runewords like Enigma really did break the diversity of meta builds. A lot of high-end Runewords had however insanely low drop rates attached to them and were intended for ultra end-game when players had nothing else to do. It was the botters flooding the market that turned these items into attainable and expected equipment for the majority of the playerbase.

    I am wondering, as stupid as you are, how do you feed yourself?
    Do you have somebody that brings the feeding spoon to your lips? :)
