I hate to say it, but Secrets of the Obscure is probably my least favorite GW2 expansion. The "you need to use the griffon everywhere" schtick is infuriating me right now.

@belghast@gamepad.club avatar

@scopique I assume this is because you have the Griffon and not the Skyscale?

I absolutely get it though because moving between areas is painful even with Skyscale which is likely what the content was designed around instead of the Griffon.

@scopique My biggest problem is the doodad you get to find where rifts are spawning... just feels bad and awkward to use. Rifts should be marked on the map at ALL TIMES and you should be able to see them anywhere in the zone.

@scopique so often by the time you find the damned thing... a group is just about to close it and you are too late to participate.

Are you Sh*ttin' me? A TIME BANDITS SERIES?! I love that movie!

@scopique wow I loved this as a kid, I had no clue it was even a thing.

@scopique @kevinbrill I think it will ultimately come down to the writing because it is going to be real hard to surpass Palin and Gilliam in their prime, the movie was so nonsensically good.

Morning Folks! As of this morning, I am 93 in Season 4 and could have probably pushed to 100 long ago but am largely taking it easy.

This morning I talk through some of the few remaining loot frustrations, in this universally better season.

@cliffwade The furthest I had made it in a past season was during the second one where I got to 90. Post 90 it just got to be too grindy.

I figure a dozen or so nightmare dungeons and I should be able to ding 100 which seems doable.

Morning Folks! Yesterday I transitioned over into World Tier III in #Diablo4 Season 4, and am starting to feel confident at an attempt to complete the World Tier IV dungeon.

Also noticed that Blizzard has both a free trial available on Battle.net and has the game on sale for $35. It is also part of Gamepass now for those folks. They seem to really want folks back.

Morning Folks! It took almost a year of tweaks, updates, and outright system reworks... but I feel like is now in a really good place with a very fun core mechanical loop.

Yesterday Season 4 launched and this morning I talked a bit about my experiences so far.

Yeah so... I am getting scatterbrained lately. I just realized that I did not actually share my morning post.

Basically this morning I talked about wrapping up the final Challenge in that I planned on going for... my hunt for the Cat Chair in that I literally just posted a picture of getting... and my thoughts about the season start.

Good Morning Folks!

A few leagues back I attempted to create a Shield Crush build on the Chieftain that converted everything to fire damage. Then last league with the advent of transfigured gems... they gave us Shield Crush of the Chieftain that is doing specifically that thing.

This weekend I started leveling yet another Marauder to see if this version works any better than my previous attempt did.

Morning Folks! I realized this morning that I had not really talked about my "map blaster" of choice for the Necropolis League. I've made versions of this character several times now but this time around I am utilizing the brand new Elemental Hit of the Spectrum gem with the tanky goodness of a Champion.

Good Morning Folks! Last night I knocked out the Masterful Monsters challenge in and spent some time this morning talking about focusing on Mapping and Heist to knock out a few more.

I also talk a bit about Maxroll throwing their hat into the Bulk Trading website game and the ramifications of that.

@bass Yeah there is a website but there is also a discord that has been rebranded for that site and will apparently at some point in the future have interconnectivity.

belghast, to pathofexile
@belghast@gamepad.club avatar

I was not entirely certain I would actually get around to blogging today. Eventually, I discovered the oomph to make something happen. Between yesterday morning and this blog post, I have knocked out three more challenges in Necropolis League and am nearing a few more.

I talk a bit more about the ones that I feel are realistic for me to complete this league.

@belghast@gamepad.club avatar

@scopique @massivelyop time gating, cash shop bullshit, a UI that is constantly screaming for my attention in 300 different notifications all firing at the same time... daily login nonsense.. no ability to just "play the game" without wading through all of this.

They are all universally awful. Sometimes I am bored enough to try them but rarely if ever last longer than a few weeks before realizing I am playing a button clicking chore simulator.

Uh. I'm pretty sure this just killed every single indie/AA owned by Embracer: https://embracer.com/releases/embracer-group-announces-its-intention-to-transform-into-three-standalone-publicly-listed-entities-at-nasdaq-stockholm/

Indie doesn't scale. You can't katamari up a bunch of tiny studios and then say "alright break into 100 teams and each make small games!", it breaks down. But that's essentially what they did

belghast,
@belghast@gamepad.club avatar

@glassbottommeg I would say... that they are trying to apply business logic to creative spaces... but this shit doesn't work out any better in non-creative spaces.

There is this great lie that when you start to refer to people as "resources" you begin to view them as interchangeable widgets in some imagined money-printing machine.

Those who have not already placed one foot out the door, will absolutely do so now leaving only a hollow shell that has a name attached to it that is meaningless

Morning Folks! This morning I explore the boost in player numbers and sales that the series is experiencing as a result of the popularity of the Amazon Series.

I also talk a bit more about my own return to
