Me too. I wish Obsidian all the best and hope the whole PoE IP will bring us many more nice games. Maybe something classless for a change? ;)

Both classless and turn based would be interesting.

I also fear it will be like Tyranny for me: one playthrough for the story, and one for a cool build - but that one I canceled because the mechanics just felt meh. 

Tyranny needs more playthroughs for the story though, while character builds are not really worth it at all. Magic always has to be your main profession, because it nets you ridiculously more exp than anything else.

I played it 5 times nevertheless, one time to get to know it, then four times to get the maximum out of every different path.

Wait, you can't enchant armor/weapons?

You can, but you don't have total freedom. The way it was explained was something like this:

  • Quality enchantments (fine, exceptional etc.) can only be upgraded once, so a fine weapon can only be upgraded to exceptional, never to superb or above.
  • The more unique enchantments like flaming are restricted to weapons which start with them, however they can be upgraded, often in two different ways.

So gone is the world where you find a weapon you like and keep upgrading it throughout the game. Instead you'll likely replace weapons as and when you find more powerful ones.

Oh man...

 

I'm not a fan either. Apparently though a big complaint with PoE was that people could stick with the first decent weapon the found and keep upgrading it, hence they'd never really use later game loot or get excited about it.

 

I suspect that most of those who complained about this never actually did so however, since to upgrade a weapon to Superb required a limited component only available in Act III and to upgrade armour to Superb required you to have beaten the Adra Dragon which, for most people, will happen in the late game. In both cases the player would have obtained most the loot the game had to offer.

 

It holds up even less once the White March expansions are added in, since the loot in those is a lot more varied and interesting. However, like so many of the common complaints it was levelled early in Pillars' life and those who didn't like Pillars repeated it long after it no longer really applied (probably because they never replayed Pillars).

 

Still, it won't be all that different to the only IE games in that regard, but I'd have preferred it remained more like Pillars' system.

I am really looking forward to Deadfire. I havent played beta however, i dont want to spoil the experience of the final game. However i am a bit worried about some things. Mainly the long cast times and recovery times. To my knowledge what i read on forums etc, casters are quite bad right now and this sucks big time for me, because i mainly focus on casters, i find them the most fun by far.

 

I have finished PoE1 several times. Recently i finished The Ultimate on priest and currently trying to finish The Ultimate on wizard. Its a great fun. 

 

I also loved Tyranny and i didnt mind the different systems as all. I found the cooldown based casting system quite good. I also finished the game with full party and also solo.

 

Hopefully the will fix these issues before the release. You say that they have a new version of beta coming out soon right? Did they already announce the changes they will make?

No, please Boeroer! Every time you come up with some odd combination or focus on one weapon type the very next patch removes or nerfs it. Put out like a secret newsletter with your builds.  Do we want another cipher retaliation focus nerf?

Go, go , go, do it all the noob way.

LISTEN to Boeroer and do not waste time to make your own builds. :) He helped me with a lot of stuff, the noob way is great.

"Waste time?" Making your own builds is half the fun of the game!

 

 

depends.

 

I enjoy clearing content and experiencing the story. I'm not a huge fan of experimenting and running the same content multiple times to find the most efficient way to play. Letting someone else shoulder the experimenting saves a lot of time.
