As some of you know, Josh is fairly active on Twitter and Instagram—and he often posts teasers and sneak peaks over there. Most of you, however, are probably not following Josh on social media and are left blissfully unaware of these little tidbits. Sure, sometimes someone will drop the occasional link on these boards but most of the awesomesauce will be lost to the forumites.

I've seen a few of those in scattered threads, but a centralized thread for these is a good idea.

I like that new stealth UI, definetly more informational. Spellcheck apparently corrected Aloth into sloth, heh.

Thanks dude for collecting all these!  Exposing yourself to twitter is going above and beyond the call of duty, you need a medal.

Wow. Can you cast reaping knives on yourself? If yes, Monk/Cipher as my main confirmed.

 

EDIT: No, you can't in PoE 1, just tried it out. Makes me sad :(

Thanks for posting these)

 

P.S. Looking at Wrath of Five Suns, there is the "Counters: Water, Frost" line. Reminds me of elements from HOMM5 Dungeon faction).

Interesting... how big will be the bonus damage, and how will it stack.

Nice compilation.

I am a bit confused about the stealth thing. They seem to have sight of line and some kind of detection ring around them. It seems that even when coming from behind an enemy you get dtected. Does the ring mean that they can hear your footsteps? If you don't move, will it still detect you (might be a laud breather). Maybe if you have high sneaking you will be able to mov unnoticed from behind, but always detected what moving in front of an enemy. I am very curious. I love stealth.

The video title does note that Aloth (typo'd as sloth) has no stealth. Also, you may or may not have noticed, but one of the NPCs vision cone (shouldn't it be blocked somewhat by the NPC in front?) is towards Aloth, which would explain the detection.

 

Seems to be more a demonstration of how the UI works while the stealth mechanics are still a WIP.

Josh said NPCs can either spot you or hear you when you stealth. The cone should represent their line of sight; the ring, their hearing range.

Except when a drunk fellow chanter is singing silly phrases while you sneak. In that case it's only the cone that matters...

I think the keywords are used for special interactions, not bonus damage. Or not just bonus damage. An example I've seen used was using a [Fire] ability on gunpowder, to make them explode. And then a [Water] or [Frost] ability can put it out.

Perhaps he is singing phrases that makes you stealthier  :biggrin:

Haha, that reminds me when I was sneaking around in Arcanum. In the middle of the night. Surrounded by huge, shining shield spell. No one saw a thing.
