Half-jokingly, I told a friend of mine that I intended to write up a bully blog against GGG and their developers. Before I do something like that, I figured to write an actual serious blog about a few ideas I have to improve areas in the game and GGG itself, especially now that Legion has ended.
I saw Mathil with a Divine Ire Totems build the other day and it intrigued me as I had been pondering doing something with Divine Ire for a while. Originally, I was considering creating another Trickster, even though I already had done so in the previous league. However, I didn’t get to the endgame with that character for one reason or another and decided to commit to an extent to this build. One thing comes to mind: fastest leveling I have done this league!
With Legion slowly coming to the end, I wanted to give a review based on my experience with the league. I tried to explore what I could with the game mechanics and managed to hit a satisfactory level of end game content for this league.
I wasn’t excited when I heard about Legion after the fatefully awful Synthesis League. The promise of it being a melee league with various skill changes made me very skeptical at first, especially Immortal Call. Overall though how has Legion been as a league?
I’m not going to lie about my feelings for this league: it wasn’t good. I’ve felt less motivated to play compared to Betrayal, which I initially had cursed out. That said, during Betrayal, I gradually felt motivated to play once I learned about the various Syndicate farming techniques in Act 8-10. Either way, the things I became excited about for Synthesis turned out to be rubbish. Why?
With Synthesis now in full motion, I went reasonably ham (with respect to my time allotment and overall weekly exhaustion) this weekend in trying to get through as much as I could. Unfortunately, the weekend is about to end so I only can talk about what I managed to accomplish for this small period.
Despite my initial misgivings with the Assassin CoC Cospri’s Malice Ice Nova/Frostbolt/Cyclone build, I still felt a certain emptiness driving me to give it a second chance. I knew that upon getting certain items, the potential of the build would be unlocked but the real trick was getting over that initial hump. In turn, I decided to re-create my character from the start and trying a slightly different path to getting him towards that end goal.
The Guardian ascendancy received a bit of a revamp last patch and I briefly gave it a spin. However, I didn’t push him into maps nor did I finish up getting even the Merciless Ascendancy. This league I decided out of boredom (and because I had some gear lying around handily) to give this build another shot.
A while back, I did another version of the Vaal Double Strike Gladiator build. I didn’t get very far with it as I ended up getting distracted and switching to another build before finishing it off during Incursion league. But there had been a nagging itch that needed to be scratched, especially in that I had a spare Bringer of Rain lying in my stash.
