    If only it allowed for more than 5 skills. Hell make those skill slots unlock via passives for all I care but give me something more to work with. Otherwise I am just continuing with Grim Dawn.

    I think it was extremely easy to maintain Werebear form, no clue why they think that was hard.

    Anyways, it's a fun build to run, so I'm looking forward to trying it with those new changes. Hope they didn't ruin it. ;)

    I don't know that that's a scorpion. It looks like it has some sort of horn on its head. Looks pretty cool either way but a werescorpion would be badass.

    Hhhrmm... don't want to shit on their art department, because I like the new bear look alot (huge improvement). Spriggan is also very good, but should be larger (it's a tree! what the hell!).

    But that thing... takes some getting used to. May play nicely tho.

    PS: Of course I can still quibble about even the bear look. If I had a say in this, I'd get rid of that remainder of human scalp hair / tails. Looks odd on the bear. Still, much better than before.

    Guys, I've just bought this and after 10 minutes of playing I am thinking about refund. So correct me if I am wrong:
    -skills are being unlocked with levels like in Diablo 3. There's no skill tree per se, you just get new skills after reaching some lvl threshold or investing some points in passives.
    -there's no ability (?) points in game? I've leveled to lvl 2 and 3 and nothing happened. My life/mana got increased, new skill unlocked and that's all. Just like in D3. How can I customize my build after leveling up?
    -there's like 4 or 5 skill slots (again, like in D3) - can I unlock more?
    -I've read that you can customize skills by wearing some items - is that the only way of doing that?
    -wtf, the art direction and sfx are terrible, much worse that Path of Exile from 2013 and lightyears away from D2 and D2 remastered
    -is there any kind of level scalling in the game?
    -I've heard that there is no multiplayer implemented yet, but I saw some in-game chat window with random ppl whining

    So far it seems that the game inherited the worst stuff from Diablo 3, mixed it with some PoE shit + added UI that is the worst I've seen in any Diablo-like game. Does the game gets better?

    The game has a massive skill tree, you don't get your first point for a few levels. You get bonuses to strength/dex etc from gear and points invested in the skill tree.

    It also has a "skill" tree for each ability. For instance the summon skeleton ability has it's own skill tree which allows it to be customised in about 10 different ways. Things like different types of skeleton summons, to the abilities each type of skeleton uses.

    Around level 40 or so you unlock a specialisation class which unlocks another skill tree for the class.

    If you play a few more levels you'll see more of the mechanics.

    Skills are unlocked by level at first, some later skills are also unlocked by your master class (specialization).
    Choosing a master class is part of your main quest progress.

    There is no 'tree of skills' as in Diablo 2. Instead, each skill can be modified via a tree of modifiers. To be accurate, it's not a tree, rather a graph, but that's splitting hairs.
    In addition there are several passive modifier trees that are not directly tied to a skill (but may also modify your skills in some cases).

    Overall, you get the following 'trees':
    • Five skill-modifier-trees, one for each of the 5 skills you select.
    • One passive-tree for your main class.
    • One passive-tree for your master class.
    • Two passive-trees for the master classes you did _not_ choose (but you can only invest into the lower half of those two). Note, that some master classes are not implemented yet.
    There's a shitload more of customization involved, compared to D2 or D3.

    Your skills level up separately from your character level. But you should receive skill points that you can spend on the skill modifier trees. You are probably ignoring some part of your UI.

    Also, you should have received points for your main class' passive tree.

    No. 5 is max.

    Skill modifier trees and some nodes in the class passive trees also customize skills.

    I sense a bit of rose-tinted nostalgia, but OK. ;)

    The main campaign doesn't level-scale, but what currently serves as "endgame content" does scale (within certain level brackets).
    Not final though, allegedly there's going to be some endgame stuff coming in the next patch. Didn't follow what it is supposed to be.

    Correct. Chat: yes. Coop/multiplayer: no.
