haha, thanks for the breakdown, but I want info on the larger meta. Basically I want to whether or not I'll enjoy PoE more than something else without actually having to play it...
Since ol' Mannercookie got banned from D3 he's been dabbling in PoE.
I caught some of his stream last night I think and he said he would be creating some youtube vids doing some comparisons between D3 and PoE in lead up to the PoE patch. If he manages to keep things objective then they could be very useful for any of us D3 players who are looking for something new.
On face value I think I'll skip, but his vids may provide some info which will get me to change my mind.
I agree, which is why I said if he manages to stay objective. But, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna give it a skip anyway and my interest is still pretty low so I'll probably not even watch his vids.
I'm curious what it is that makes you feel this way?
Oh, what is the point of Vaal skill gems? Are they sort of a temp boost after X kills?
Also, how can you find out how much mana [-]is [/-]will be reserved before upgrading a gem when running a particular aura? I'm wary of upgrading my clarity aura to the point where I have no mana left
edit again: and for a spell based build, I'm guessing weapons are more of a stat stick than anything else?
edit: found a calculator - https://poe.mikelat.com/#EoHX/QM
Yes Sherlock but how do I know how much will be reserved BEFORE upgrading the gem
Which the calculator linked shows
If you hover over the gem in your inventory does it not show current stats and stats after upgrading? I know it shows some of the stats after upgrading, not sure about mana reserved.
I didn't see anything when I looked, maybe I'm blind though, my wife is always telling me to open my eyes when looking for stuff
But I'm sure I couldn't see the new mana costs for upgraded spells either, just the new damage range. I'll have to look carefully tonight
I would like to try this game...
