Made a Marauder because I’m a murry. Any particular build/style that is favorable for leveling etc? Just basic stuff.
Obviously gonna go to the subreddit for more in depth stuff when I get a general grasp. But for now would be cool to hear the streamlined business from people here that play.

What do you guys play?
What should I do, expect and play towards to make the most out of this game. Cause it looks fun and pretty.

PS I want cool glowy shit like wings and armor and stuff because that’s what is drawing me in the most.

I’m still figuring out what sort of build I want to play at the moment. Dual flame totems is pretty popular right now. In the past I’ve enjoyed cyclone builds, as well as playing a crit ice shot. It’s up to you really if you want to experiment a bit (which can be really fun), but I would recommend at least making one that you know’s already viable. The lists in the forums are pretty good for finding ones/referencing them:

Duelist
Marauder
Ranger
Scion
Shadow
Templar
Witch

As you probably know by now, the builds are built around the skills and the classes just provide ideal starting positions on the tree for getting nodes. To have a viable build that can survive late game you have to focus on having health (or/and Energy Shield). As well as your evasion/armour and resistances - which you’ll get a lot from gear.

After quests and getting quest rewards, the vendor in towns (that sells flasks and jewellery) also sells SkillGems. There’s a list of them here.

pathofexile.gamepedia.com is your friend, and will provide loads of information on skills, quests, anything really.

Ziggy D’s Quick Start Guide is a really good place to get going too: Playlist here

As well as r/pathofexile’s new player guide: https://www.reddit.com/r/pathofexile/comments/1zn0lt/new_players_welcome_to_rpathofexile_please_see/

Then if you have any other questions hit me up on teamspeak or something, and there’s usually a few other people who can offer helpful info.

Sweet. This is awesome, thanks Fluff. Exactly what I was looking for :slight_smile:

This will help heaps. Got chatting with a friend who is quite into it, gone down the the road to a cyclone build. Just so i can get the game mechanics down for now.

What’s people’s deets too? I’ll add them, social gaming is best gaming right?

Have you guys got a Kiejr guild or anything?
