I searched this part of the forums and was surprised to see there was no discussion about this game.

If you haven't heard of it before, it is a free-to-play Action RPG that plays similarly to games like Torchlight and Diablo, and is supposed to be similar to Diablo 2 in terms of presentation and execution (I can't confirm this, as I've never played an ARPG before Path of Exile). It has only recently been released from Open Beta, and the new leagues haven't been active for too long. There is no Pay to Win elements to this game, all micro transactions are purely cosmetic, and give no advantage to the player in any way.

You can either download the game directly from the official website (http://www.pathofexile.com/), or you can get it off Steam.

I am currently playing a Cryomancer Witch in the Domination league, which turned out to be a really fun build, and I'm also running a Spectral Throw Scion in the Nemesis league, because I just wanted to try out Hardcore with a not-so-hard to play build ^^

Have quite a few characters in domination myself, all attempting to force their way thought the "merciless" brick wall as self-made (no trading, only using items found).

Game's great, but like other games of it's genre it puts too much focus on trading to push forward in the higher levels.

There actually was an open thread about this, but I just took a look and there's not much recent activity there, and what is recent isn't of much substance, so I've just now closed it. If you're interested in taking a look just for the heck of it, it's here (yeah, it's got the wrong preposition):

This game is by far the sequel to Diablo 2 I wanted. Diablo 3 was awful being balanced around the auction house. The great thing about this game is you don't have to pay anything to play it and even then the only account benefit you can get is more spaces in your stash to hoard items. The skill tree reminds me of Final Fantasy 10's skill tree where you pretty much can do anything with it depending on what passive skills you take.

If you liked Diablo 2, you MUST play this.

It's just a direct copy of Diablo 2, which I played to smithereens. D3 was a proper game, PoE is not.

The only thing they have going for them is the skill-tree, which to be honest, is pretentious garbage. Wish they had tried to come up with something new or interesting. .-.

It's a decent enough game to waste time in, though.

D3 is trash, it is not a proper game in the slightest, besides the graphics and the smooth combat it has nothing going for it. PoE did everything D3 should of done. D3 has no customization in builds or characters. All characters are the same.

Yeah I quit that piece of crap D3... hell I even bought the collectors edition when I had high hopes for the game. Not even going to bother with RoS expansion.

For the moment PoE is my ARPG fix and i'm playing on Nemesis hardcore.

A new mini-expansion is being released in about 13 days.

I've played roughly 66 hours, with several decently leveled characters. I actually stopped playing at one point (due to death penalties, they varied in different difficulties, if you die in the hardest difficulty you lose 10% of your exp and I wasn't in the mood at the time) and got side-tracked by other games. I just recently picked it up back, grinding levels with my 53 Witch in The Docks. It has great replay value.

I messed around with a ranger but I learned the basics and started over with a duelist.
I'm trying to build a two handed hammer, evasive type.
First game I preplanned my leveling.
