Sure your brute can cast spells, but in the character creation, ONLY a male can be solely based on strength.

 

Or m I missing something? (It's downloading now :) )



As outlined above me your starting character is really just your starting point on the tree.  You can develop ANY way you like and since most good builds are all over the tree it really doesn't hinder you much (in fact sometimes the best places to start for a str-based character are in the int-based areas as you'll be hitting nodes over there later on).

 

While I don't play that often now it is a really fun game, especially for the price.  My only gripe with the game is that it's more meant to continually refine your character by rerolling, so it's kind of better to always play hardcore just for the fun of it.  There's little to nothing to do once you go through the 3 difficulty levels and even going through after the first time is really just like any other "action-combat" game where you just repeat your same maps.  Granted they have the higher level maps that are essentially drops later on...but it's hard to rationalize grinding for little or no reason.



So basically, character creation consists of choosing which of the 7 unchangeable character models the player likes best.

 

More or less....you can choose based on what nodes you want to hit first, or you can plan it all out and realistically make it work from almost any starting position.  While the tree looks rather daunting and large at first it's usually only 4-6 nodes to move clear to the other side.  Like I said, the game is really just about rerolling, once you realize that and how fast you can level it really doesn't matter where you start.

Just because every car has similar features doesn't mean that Ferraris are copies of Model Ts. Progress requires failure and refining.

fwiw, anyone who picks stat based nodes (thats what the things in the passive are called) unless absolutely necessary is playing wrong.

The character I got the farthest on HC (no deaths) was level 81, and he was a Marauder who yielded a wand and a spirit shield, and focused heavily on auras and energy shield

POE lets you do whatever you wish, and you will unlikely fill out the entire tree anyways.  Pick a guy you like, and build it how you like.

for new players, go Templar if you want a male, take the 40% mana regen which is the 1st node, and pile up the elemental damage, as a caster.

as an Alpha player of POE, I have heard the devs many times, saying they will eventually make all classes available thru the shop as a way to generate revenue.  They wanted to get ou the 7th class first though

It's gender locked for monetary reasons. Blizzard may have the money to duplicate every art asset in the game but Grinding Gear Games doesn't. Yet. So they spent their money where they needed to. They offered more classes instead.

RPG's are not like your average video games where you have a character you play, a RPG to me is to progress a character, get immersed and enjoy the universe, I hate to say this because I don't know you but if you don't understand this then you are not playing MMORPG's the way they are meant to be played IMO, you are missing out if you approach a role playing game any other way.

 

Not very big on using your imagination, are you?

The whole racing to the end space baring all the story text to get the best gear first just so you can stand in the player towns or lobbies to flex my EGO is not why I play MMORPG's, I'm a 36 year old man that plays MMORPGS to get away from reality for fun not a 16 year old kid stroking my epeen inside of a online video game, I got real life for that lol, see what I'm saying?

Also please don't take my reply to your post as any sort of disrespect I just chose your post at pretty much random, so it could of been anyone.

 

PoE doesnt really seem like a "Role Playing" friendly game, its an ARPG, you level up a character and kill things for loot.  I dont recall anyone in D2 doing any kind of RP, no Wanderer's long lost daughter searching for her father or corrupted paladins searching for diablo's power or anything like that.  

 

If you were really looking for a RP experience, this wasnt going to be your game regardless of gender issues.

Pretty silly reason not to play a game if you ask me but you really didn't miss much. it is your standard repeat the same content over and over and then have a little bit of freedom at the end with dropped maps type of gameplay. The combat pacing itself is pretty poor and the mob AI is atrocious. Too bad because their take on potions and sockets on items etc are all fantastic, but if the gameplay stinks you won't get as many fans sticking around as you had hoped for.

The skill tree at first looks awesome but there are major keystones that are just better than others and you end up combining large branches of the tree instead of individual nodes. This means you do end up with a lot of people taking largely cookie cutter builds still.

I guess you can never play Diablo/ Or Diablo 2. Or Sacred. Or LOTR War in the north. Or Final Fantasy.

Such a shame.

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

Sorry, this might seem cruel and antagonistic, but I was immediatly reminded of the main "villain" from the South Park episode, "Make Love Not Warcraft".

Sorry, but that was the first thing that came to mind.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

No big loss there. Diablo was great but is so dated now and D2 is by far the most overrated game in the markets history. There is a reason that most of the fanbase played moded versions of it instead of the online version.

There's that neat little "most" word. People sure love to throw that out there when trying to be extra right about stuff.

These kinda games are grind games not a RP type of game.

Fine, we'll compromise. I'll get my way & you'll find a way to be okay with that.

I'd suggest you stick to making useful posts or at least giving an opinion of some type. We all have them, we are all sharing them and we aren't all going to agree on them.

I just don't....uhhh...you can make.......the game is.....uhhh...... what?

 

This has to be the absolute dumbest post I've read on these forums in a super long time.

 

Firstly....there are 7 starting classes...and 4 of them are male.

Secondly...you can build a character to use whatever skills/spells you want...with endless combinations...regardless of class...or gender (wtf)

Thirdly...there is someone else in this thread complaining that the genders don't cater to non-gender specific roles...what the fuck?  My main character in PoE is literally a lvl 82 infernal blow witch....she's female...she's a witch that starts in the intelligence based part of the passive tree....and I took a path to all strength passives....and use all strength skills.....

 

This thread honestly has to be a troll.  There's just no way this is serious.

It must be a troll or someone that is just QQ cuz he/she sucks at the game.

Srsly, the only actual problems in PoE are desync and the fact that I'm godly unlucky (I hate RNG), the rest is from good to great.

Path of Exile is not a game based around aesthetics. It is not a game you are meant to roleplay in. Your character is nothing more than a walking suit of armor that you dress up with the bajillion items you find. Your really putting too much thought in looks.

Youre missing something.

 

Nothing is set in stone, per say there is no classes. You can be anything you want.

 

Take a good look at the passive skill tree on the website or ingame. You can any path you want. make a 95 point build for starters, thats points for when you start endgame.

 

You can go a witch and go strength 2H mode if you so desire.
