Yammering wall of POE text.

The new patch has breathed life into my old marauder, and I actually had some fun with him for the first time in a long while. I couldn't afford a multistrike gem for initial day prices of 1 exalt+, but the price ought to drop as the days wear on based on the old supply/demand formula I was supposed to have learned somewhere.

Melee splash is cool, however. I had respecced from Axe user to pretty much non-specific high life and resists ground slammer... SNOOZE. Now my heavy strike is up front again. I changed out my gain life on hit for melee splash and went from 4000 dps to 3450 single target damage after leveling the gem a bit, but watching the packs fall around me makes the glad not to have to slam, slam, slam, slam, slam, ... ...
..........

I might try out infernal blow tonight. I was good to myself and had stockpiled a decent number of passive and respec tree points for if and when I ever got any direction for this guy. He's level 64, in middle of merci act 2, ~2900 life, resists close to 80. IGN: Axbeard. My ranger, The_Red_Baroness, is 60, and is a horrible mess. She was fun through Cruel, but now pretty much broken. She used Maligaro's and Death's Harp and Crit Weak curse to get lots of critical hits.

Ive been having great fun with an armor/evasion/block/reflect melee guy. Basically nothing can hit me, and when it does, it hurts the attacker quite nicely.

Kind of like a swarm of bees, then.

Gloat:
I found Thunderfist right after the patch deployed.
End-gloat.

I'm running a cookie cutter ele-cleave templar ala VicDoom's guide. In two more clvls, I'll be losing a lot of survivability for lots of wiggins as I'm also wearing Wake of Destruction.

Incoming huge patch! Full respecs for everybody, and a major reworking of the game system to, hopefully, improve melee.

Damn, how will I sleep for the next few days? I will be seeing passive nodes everywhere I go.

I've got a 72 templar, 65 marauder, 60 ranger, 47 shadow. Oh man oh man oh man.

Full respecs? Fantastic. I've been enjoying the offline passive tree tool and now I can enjoy planning my skill trees all over again. My duelist just hit 54 killing Piety on Cruel - I got halfway to 55 in A1 Merciless and then got killed several times by that vicious boss on the Medicine Chest quest (the one that freezes). So I'm back to 0% ...

My next highest level char is a Witch in her early 30s and a Marauder at around 29.

Just started playing this yesterday. Messing around with a ranger, they're pretty fun. Have to say it's a really good game so far, especially since it's free

Cool! I got my full respec for all my characters, but haven't spent the points yet. It's fun just playing around with the points on the website's passive skill tree tool. I'm leaning toward a Bringer of Rain super manly Conan guy. I've got an 8 exalt budget since I sold most of my best gear. If you get in the neighborhood of 60+ levels, and are in Default league, give me a shout here.
