So after getting squashed and depressed by a failed Uber Lab run, I waited a few days for prices to come down on Voices and other gear. Ended up buying a few more Purposeful Harbingers, two 7 passive Voices, 1 Purposeful Harbinger/Heraldry and 2 Call of the Brotherhood rings (corrupted). How is this looking so far?
It’s pretty funny watching all the latest clips and reddit posts regarding the various quality of life (QoL) features the Chinese Client version of Path of Exile provides with the recent race. Much of the features to modern companies probably wouldn’t be discarded in the blink of an eye as any sensible company would want a high degree of standards for their game. But the level of simplicity yet massive improvements demonstrated show that there probably is a level of stubbornness and (more than likely) incompetence on GGG’s behalf where these could easily be implemented.
So I’ve been invested about a month now or so into Delirium. My trip has been a bit wild with twists and turns…not really. It’s my usual play style of focusing on a league starter then moving on. But I did this after many of the main updates were made along with a much needed suggestion from a friend that improved my overall experience with the game.
Got through the second episode of the Chris Benoit tragedy and found the entire thing to be quite heavy and revealing too. There were some areas I either forgot (some situations where I did so on purpose) while others were new to me. Either way, I wanted to write this post to help me process the overall story and put my two cents on the events.
I was a bit skeptical of the new league Delirium and wanted to wait a week or two before possibly giving it a try. Honestly, by the looks of it, I might just sit out this league and play Standard. Most people might look at me funny and go, “Why the heck would you do that?” It’s simple: I’ve got unfinished projects.
So I decided not to check out Delirium league and wait for feedback to see how bad it was going to turn out. Right now, as I read feedback from angry hardcore fans both on Twitch and reddit, I’ve come to the conclusion that my decision was right. The general assessment in my own words is that this league is basically Corona on top of AIDS.
Pretty much the world is going to hell with this whole Corona Virus nonsense. It reminds me of AIDS when it first started to make headlines. The primary difference between then and now is the sheer access and volume of information at our disposal in an instant. However, in many ways I think this is a great thing.
So Metamorph league is ending and soon Delirium will start. After checking out Mathil’s league build review, I wanted to do something similar. I didn’t want to use his rating system but use my own while going over the various builds I tried (or tried and gave up on) during this league.
Been playing around with various builds as of late. I wanted to try both a Mjonir cyclone build and some form of an elementalist. I ended up settling on both but focused on elementalist as a Xoph’s Inception had dropped for me, which motivated me to give this build a try. While the Mjonir build is on hold, the elementalist build has been going full force.
I have been playing a great deal of Path of Exile recently and have been enjoying the basics. I haven’t really pushed the game because of various bugs and just lack of motivation. Nonetheless, I wanted to see how things were going due to the league mechanic as well as the expansion portion. Here are some thoughts thus far.
