OP  7/31/14 4:12:46 PM#1

The Path of Exile site has been updated with the news of the next major content expansion. Called "Forsaken Masters", the new content offers players the chance to train with these Forsaken Masters, each with their own missions and rewards. In addition, the Forsaken Masters will assist players in finding their own Hideout that can be customized as a personal town.

In their extensive travels throughout Wraeclast, the seven Masters have discovered ideal locations for an Exile to use as their own secret Hideout.

Once you've earned a Master's trust, you may be taken to a Hideout, where you can create your own personalised town. Masters residing in your Hideout offer you daily Missions and train you in advanced crafting options.

Use your Hideout as a quiet place to craft after battle, or expand it and use it as a personalised Guild Hall with hundreds of decorations.

Also:

  • Upgrade your crafting benches
  • New items & mods
  • New support & skill gems
  • New challenge leagues
  • Rampage Challenge League
  • Beyond Challenge League
  • Passive skill tree overhaul
  • Existing content overhauled
(Thanks Boltonsquad!)
 
Forsaken Masters is set to be released on August 20th. Read more on the Path of Exile site.

You also missed out:
 
- Updated passive skill tree
 
& when you say  "Upgraded crafting benches", these don't actually exist in the game at present this states they do, could be changed to: "Upgrade your crafting benches"

Didn't expect this nice Diablo-esque game to get a housing system.  Neat.

if this game had d3's combat style and better character/item models, i'd never touch another game.

the combat delay, animation, items just push me away. The game has so much potential they need to hire some better animators and performance personnel

The thing that Path of Exile has that D3 doesn't is a brilliant community & the ability to trade & sell your goods that drop, the ability to not be able to trade items in D3 totally killed it for me.

WAAAGH!

Intriguing as housing sounds, it's still not enough to make me overlook the unnecessarily obtuse and unforgiving skill tree, poor character designs & animations, desync and animation delay, horrible endgame 'crafting', etc.

Still, have to hand it to GGG for continually pumping out new content. Not bad for a bunch of rookies.

AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!

Pretty much this.  The combat and art are terrible.

Are the animations still lack luster?  That was the only problem I had.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

As someone who has always advocated a strong core combat system I think you're misjudging the delay and animation.  It isn't bad as all.  It is comparable to many games of the same caliber.  Of course it doesn't have the production quality of Diablo 3 but it has more substance.  The only issue the game has in my humble opinion is desync issues.  But both animation delay and desync can be circumvented by not playing certain builds that promote spammy attacks.  I know it's not a desirable solution but it is a solution for a game that is heavily developed inhouse with a miniscule budget.

 

IMO PoE is head and shoulders better then Diablo 3 but the nature of both games is that it's quite possible to play both for different reasons.  It isn't like an MMO where you need to devote all your efforts and energy into staying in the fray.   

 

The item models are a non issue for 2 reasons.  First they want you to buy cosmetic upgrades to change the appearance, it's their business model and only source of revenue.  2nd it is an isometric top down view where you really don't need to worry about the looks of your character.  I don't care how my D3 characters look because It is not really noticeable while in combat.

Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

yeah..wtf comes to mind when I read the comments about weapon models. What are people doing standing around in town looking at themselves ?

Wow, even POE's getting "housing" now? It really is becoming an industry standard, even for non-MMORPGs apparently.

Either way, it sounds good to me. I'll have to start playing that game again one of these days.

I loved the game, even was playing it on the hardcore leagues, but the desync issues made it unplayable.  D2 currently has less syncing problems online...

 

It makes me really sad because I really enjoyed the game, but have limited desire to play it on softcore to take the desync deaths in stride.

I'm fortunate that I never cared much for the hardcore modes. So when I die due to a desynch all it does is just annoy me a little because of the xp loss. (And because my area may reset by the time I get back if I forgot to put up a portal)

You don't have to put portals up anymore, you get a respawn point. But portals now have a short duration.

That's a nifty little update that's sure to make life easier. :D

I absolutely love their support. Got instant replies, and it was efficient and straight to the point. 

Though i do agree with you on the animations and combat, im hoping for some performance improvement. Desync still gets my hardcore killed, at times is just too much.

I never had such a long network to server data sync transfer, in any previous game (and i have years of gaming)

Skill tree is awesome along with the character designs.. animations are as good as any game like it... after palying the game for over a year i have had dysync maybe once or twice.

For a free game you really cant go wrong.

Not bad for free game.  To me POE does more right than wrong.  Being that it's pretty much 100% free for the most part gives Grinding Gears all kinds of passes as far as I'm concerned.  The game is a nice addition to the hack & slash isometric genre.
