Nice. Seems like it could be a fringe benefit from their development work on PoE2.There is a new patch out that includes a beta version for a Vulkan renderer. It promises more consistent performance over the DX11 renderer, especially under high CPU load.
I'm thinking POE2 is the next thing that will truly hook me. They went too far down the speed meta rabbit hole to the point that you're either blowing everything up or you're getting blown up, and I don't think there's much they can do about it until POE2 gives them an official chance to reset.The new league looks great, but atm, I don't think I have the time for it. It's too... familiar? Have tons of hours into the game, but this just reaks of synthesis and betrayal. I really disliked both leagues.. synthesis was kinda ok. I liked the little side areas.. the board pretty much killed it for me.. betrayal.. that was more gank squad while doing shitmod red maps while in a breach with beyond.. but the biggy was unlocking crafting.. I like crafting and all, but I don't like my gameplay being interrupted, via side area or zone switch. Vaal sides are fine, it's small and a quick breeze, like synthesis did it.. This is more akin to the board.. leave the map, go plant shit, see you 3 maps later.. I dunno.. I don't like it.
Kinda torn between this and GD.
It can be quite fun multiplayer. The trick is to find someone that doesn't just wander off or tries to show off and makes a mess of things. I think a guild would be a good start. It's too bad there's no [H] guild.I've never done party play ever in PoE, so I think I'm going to try to scope out a guild. Iunno, I sort of miss the days of logging in with a few others and knocking some stuff out together. Love playing support roles. Something like a tanking, taunting, Gladiator seems fun.
Shit. There's a queue? My wife is home. I'll have her fire the game up, haha.Im in the queue now...now to take a nap before start lol
Shame, this league looks closer to Incursion, which was fun to play. Less craft heavy and some cool rewards. Friend of mine is going to play STD due to crafts. Might look us up? Ign HecatareFor the first time in a few years, I have no real desire to get into the next league. Kind of wiped out having to keep up three monitors, follow builds, run 3rd party programs, etc. I've actually fallen back into D3 after not playing since 2017.
Eh, hunting season starts tomorrow, I've picked up reloading, got a bunch of projects around the house, need to bang out firewood, etc. Just too busy of a season right now. Temps are hitting the 40s which is my perfect weather, so I'm outside enjoying the weather, not inside with the central air cranked. I phase in and out of POE. I'll play for a few leagues, get burnt out, take a break for a few, then come back. I'll probably get myself POE2 when it releases.Shame, this league looks closer to Incursion, which was fun to play.

"Wait" you say? I don't think so! This league is looking absolutely WILD if you like building around uniques and trying out builds! Those are some really nice challenge rewards too - I'm thinking there will be many people completing 24 for the cat.Neat post, but we should wait for the dev. Manifesto to drop. It's a broad idea to what will happen to classes and builds...man, I hope Necro eats it.
