Just watched Rhykker’s tier list for Diablo bosses. And it reminded me how important boss fights are in creating a compelling ARPG experience. For those who haven’t watched it, link below:
I think D3 was such a disappointment for ARPGs fans because not only did it failed to provide for interesting itemization, its bosses were also largely terrible and poorly set up. Then we have POE, which has probably the best itemization system in any ARPGs and a solid solo gameplay, but which boss fights are largely forgettable and non-sensical from a lore perspective (particularly the bosses in act 6 onwards. Though I have a good impression of dominus and shaper/elder fights and lore setup).
Anyway, all those rambling was just me thinking that given the devs here have emphasised on the importance of lore in LE, I am looking forward to seeing mostly B - S tier bosses in LE. The boss fights in the game currently feel rather forgettable, but I suppose it’s another one of that stuff I’ll chalk it up as “just an early beta thing”.
