any of you dudes playing this? its basically a arpg like diablo 2 with an overly complicated skill tree and f2p. i think its pretty fun and there is no paying for advantages besides stash size which is nice but not all that important. definitely the best f2p ive ever played

Because they’re often buggy and unbalanced and once the finished game is released the gimmick wears off and you end up not playing it.

Patching it now. Haven’t touched it since I first downloaded it almost a year ago. Don’t even think my computer can run it efficiently, though.

1) Look up “best [class name] build path of exile”
2) Find best skill tree build
3) Copy it

Just played it again since the one public testing weekend a few months ago. It has improved quite a bit with new classes and complete voice-over.

“This is Path of Exile’s passive skill tree. It is a vast web of 1350 skills

How can you even come up with so many skills?!

Yep, it’s one crazy skill tree. I played it like 8 months ago in beta, but I never really got into it, not saying I didn’t enjoy it though.

How do they plan on balancing something like that?

There’s no need. With so many possibilities, there’s no point in trying to balance it very much. People can just come up with different combinations that defeat others.
Balancing skill trees makes sense when you are given a limited choice of skills. For example, in WoW, the classes (before Mists of Pandaria cause I don’t know how it is there) have 3 talent trees and most builds are pretty similar because you don’t have many options. To become powerful, you usually go deep inside one talent tree with pretty much the same talents as everyone else.
Apparently, that’s not the case here. You can go anywhere you want and have completely original abilities. If I understand correctly, you can even be a melee mage with a two-hander, a heavily armored archer, etc. The thing that balances is the imagination of people. Some things work, others don’t.
Of course, manually balancing some aspects of the system is necessary.

PoE is the best example that you can make successfull game that is truly free2play and doesn’t have any of pay2win bullshit that is so common in all MMOs on Kong (except maybe for Nova Raider). Other developers should learn from GGG.
As for skill tree: there are many instances of skill repeated few times (+1% to dmg and such), so amount of truly unique skills is lower than 1350. Also it most likely looks simpler once you straighten all those curved lines. All that being said, it’s still the most amazing skill tree I’ve ever seen and one of many reasons why PoE deserves to be called the game of the decade.

On Topic, I have not personally tried it. It looks cool, but your just talking about the skill tree.
