Path of Exile (Diablo lovers - LOOK HERE - F2P)

So there's a game currently being made that seems very promising. A lot of people complain that Diablo 3 isn't "dark" enough...Well this game is DARK.


Path of Exile is a free online-only action role-playing game set in the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast. It is currently under development by Grinding Gear Games in New Zealand. New players are being added continuously to the Closed Beta Test.

There are currently five classes to choose from in the game...

-Marauder
-Templar
-Ranger
-Witch
-Duelist

One thing thats unique about this game is it's MASSIVE passive skill tree. There are hundreds of skills to choose from on this tree..You literally scroll around on it, it's so huge. Here's a link to a website view of it:

http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree/

And here's an awesome trailer for the Templar class:

I played the beta this weekend. For the most part I really enjoyed it. The skill tree (skill forest lol) is seriously awesome. Making potions into an autofilling piece of gear with stats is a great evolution of old potion systems. I also enjoyed skills being tied to gems that level up, sort of like materia in FF7.

The only thing I could really complain about if the feel of the game. It just seems a little slow overall. The animations take too long and the move speed on everything is slow. That said, this complaint could be totally null and void with +movespeed +attackspeed +castspeed from that HUGE skill tree and gear from past act 1.

I only got to play for like 30 minutes this weekend...I wish I knew about it sooner...I'm really looking hard for a beta key...or praying I'm randomly selected to join.

I can't stop watching that templar trailer...It's very well done...The voice acting is superb as well.

I'm sad to see that I missed the public weekend. I signed up for a beta key long ago, however never received one. I'm eager for this to be released no doubt!

Got an email today saying if you buy one of their micro transactions (cheapest is $10) you get automatic closed beta access. Otherwise they are continuing to give out random access codes to members and Open Beta is slated for June.

Been having a blast with this game...I think I like the Witch the best so far. Nothing like summoning zombies and skeletons and then AoE nuking everything with Firestorm.

I pre-purchased the Supporter package for 15$.

to bad the templar class is limited to NPCs in diablo 3...in fact i'm really disapointed in the the amount of classes and types. I'm sure they will add more with expansions but until then the demon hunter and barb are my favorites.

Been playing a couple days now. Level 24 I think. This game is actually really god damn awesome. In a lot of ways it shamelessly rips off Diablo 2, but it works really well. Plus the big twist on the skills and attributes works well as far as I can see.

What classes are you guys finding the most fun?

I personally am finding the Witch and Templar to be pretty fun.

All of those questions are very obviously listed and answered on the website. I refuse to answer them until you spend 5 seconds of your own time to help yourself, you mac using infant.

Me and my friend picked this up and having a blast with it playing co-op. He is playing Templar and I am playing Marauder... we only level 12 or so. The massive skill tree is a little overwhelming but insanely awesome with much diversity.

Very similar to Diablo 2 as Ssgar said, but made it a bit less tedious by eliminating gold, potions... and replacing with rechargable mana/health , and identify item scrolls is used as currency. Kind of a cool concept.

It might be blasphemy, but I had a lot more fun with Path of Exile than I did with the D3 beta. D3 was a nostalgia trip (the sounds are awesome) but as a game I was mostly unimpressed. I really thought a ton of the design choices in PoE were unique and interesting and it did a great job of holding my attention. Who knows how this will hold up after the games actually release in full though, just sharing my experience.
