    For me the game is super boring from levels 25-65.
    Leveling in slow, repeating same shit. And you can't use anything of what you are supposed to do.

    But after 64 is when it comes alive, gear is good, gems are good.
    You move about faster, kill quick etc. And most of you links should be near final stage.

    Then it is mapping till lvl 92, and start on endgame content.

    Any tips to get past that bit? My last attempt was a flame totem marauder build but it got pretty dull just standing around waiting for totems to kill stuff, even if they did it fast.
    Idara nailed it..
    This is the very reason with 3.0 Cruel & Merciless difficulty is gone.

    Once you hit 75-80, you have completed Merciless lab, the character is almost fully developed.
    What remains is tweaking and improving the build, push the limits.

    And for us that loves ARPG's, this is what it is all about.
    You don't have to Min/Max everything, but rather work on synergies.

    I just played 1 character in Breach league, but from start till end it had change quite a bit!

    I think this AoE change is good for the game, should slow down the clear speeds.
    My Vaal Sparker is unaffected, so I should be good.

    When we initially mentioned the major Area of Effect changes coming in Content Update 2.6.0, some players asked why we were buffing AoE skills further. While most players understood correctly, we wanted to post a detailed description of the changes so that all players understand the purpose of the changes.

    Extreme min-max AoE builds are nerfed by these changes. Builds that didn't go all-in on AoE are generally helped somewhat. In addition, less-frequently-used skills with lower AoE have been improved. This is an intentional rebalance with the specific goal of providing more decision variety and reducing the absolutely-mandatory feeling of AoE for certain builds. It now acts like other game systems, rather than growing exponentially at the end-game.

    What are these changes?

    All sources of "Increased Radius of Area Skills" have been replaced with an increase to area. This means that rather than the area of the skill increasing geometrically as the player invests in the modifier to area scale, the radius gained per point of the stat will be lower and lower as heavy investment occurs, similar to diminishing returns. The goal of this change is to make investing in the size of your area skills to be less rewarding the more you invest, so players don't feel like they need to gather every single point of area radius to reach their character's full potential.

    Open the thread, pretty pictures in there.

    Sounds to me like i'll be going Lightning Strike on my first char, if i play next league.
    Speaking of which, do i understand correctly that next league is my best chance to be able to try for a Headhunter? If so, i might stop by. Didnt realize league change was currently happening.

    That and the FPS rape it induces.

    I literally had it consistently drop me from ~170 fps to ~1.7fps. DX11 beta without shadows was only down to ~15, about 10x better, but still slower proj + multistrike was unplayable if projectiles were actually travelling anywhere & being viable.

    It'd be good for the game if they also nerfed projectiles and didn't buff stuff like blade vortex.

    It clears maps fine but isn't great for end game stuff. Assuming your talking about burning arrow. Honestly I'd probably make a vaal sparker though it fills the same role but it is much faster at it.

    Much sad!
    Reach of the Council goes from +4 to +2 additional arrows.

    Now all the council drops are worthless.

    At least you can get rid of the prophecies by entering the zones instead of wasting coins.
