Hi, I haven’t played much of this game, love what I have played and was thinking with how deep the skill system is, this could be everything I ever wanted and missed since Marvel Heroes Died.
But, after watching some end game videos I have some reservations, the same ones that stopped me from trying to get into Path of Exile.
And that’s running around in circles.
Let me explain. Part of why I loved Marvel Heroes style of action combat was, you had a few more skills, but importantly, you had rotations that needed to be maintained, buffs, debuffs to manage, procs and combos with your own abilities along with ability to use movement to traverse or dodge etc - The skill and build system as nowhere near as deep, but it was interesting and had a cool speed running community, dps metrics etc that was all made possible by how you abilities worked with one another.
The videos I’ve watched seem to be a lesson in running around in circles while you press a button to aoe clear everything while sometimes using a barrier or movement to allow you to keep running in circles and surviving. This couldn’t be less engaging to me. Fair enough, the furthest I’ve personally gone is with a mage, but Ive watched arena videos of all classes and well, the pattern is kind of the same.
If anyone can tell me otherwise, great, please do, I’ve missed playing a game like this and it seems with it’s class system it has everything going for it I would enjoy. Other than the running in circles, only one skill needed to kill everything, minimal actual interaction combat
