Recently, I’ve seen a huge influx of new players over on Twitch for Path of Exile. While it is an exciting time to be a Path of Exile fan, it can be a frustrating time for the new player as well as veteran players barely able to contain holding their tongue while they watch new players make pretty severe mistakes. The Delve league itself, while not horribly tough, does require a reasonable amount of time to understand the basic mechanics. If you started late in the game, then some of those mechanics can be pretty unforgiving. Hence, I wanted to write up an article based on my experience as a mid-experience player and how I would have approached this league a little better in retrospect, especially with the new league starting soon.
This post will be heavily opinionated based on my recent experience with the Incursion league, the end of Beast League, the very initial foray into the Flashback Incursion league and finally the upcoming Delve League. I might occasionally compare it to Diablo 3, but for the most part this isn’t going to be game XXX is better than YYY type of write up.
I did my general thoughts about Incursion league. In this post, I wanted to go over the various builds that I attempted. Some were failures in experimentation, others I would halt half way and a few I managed to get into maps. How did each compare at the end of the day?
Up until this recent patch/league, I never had much luck getting far in Path of Exile. However, this league marks the first time I managed to get into maps due to mostly having a better computer and some helper gear donated by a friend as well as getting good advice from the same person. Here are my post-league thoughts on this league as well as my journey.
