And bots can't identify mispriced items on poe.trade right now and alert a group of people that something is mispriced? Seems like it would be an easy enough script to write.

It would also lead prices to more quickly towards their actual market price... as well as GGG would work on stopping them anyway, like I'm sure they do with existing gameplay bots.

Re: Path of Exile

bots exist for sure on POE. I had a tabula rosa 6 link thing. I am just starting out and I'm trying to build up my currency, so I decided to sell it. I put it up for auction for 8c.

got 10 trade request instantly, knew I ****ed that one up lol

Went on poetrade and saw its more like 15

Re: Path of Exile

Yeh bots exist and programs exist to find stuff faster than poe.trade.

The actual need to message online, non-afk, people, and then go get the stuff makes it a hassle to abuse them to a large extent.

Trade is by no means perfect, and can be a complete pita, but implementing an AH could really mess the game up.

Re: Path of Exile

Yea. Maybe one of those people that insta-messages you. If I didn't have to message you, I'm sure that the person who wrote my script would be able to adjust it to auto click the button to buy. That would make it IMPOSSIBLE to get things for a price that you desire

This is the WOAT argument against PoE auction house. D3 and Blizzard tried a real money auction house, something above and beyond a standard one. Auction houses exist in so many mmos and run fine that there's zero reason to believe that it'd ruin the game like D3's real money AH. The trade system in PoE is garbo and inconvenient af to use. Browsing poe.trade for goods is a really stupid use of time.

Max ES on the best chest gear lowered form like 986 to 600. helms/shields/etc hit even harder. Only ES piece of gear to get a buff is an amulet

End game ES values lowered by 33% (gear and discipline aura).
ES multiplier passive behind CI on the tree removed.
Vaal Pact no longer affects ES.
Ghost Reaver makes ES recharge rate worse as a counter downside to the ES leech it provides.

Re: Path of Exile

my witch/summoner build has drifted into a life/es build, with 5 giant zombies and a fire golem.

I have two aura, one energy shield, one life, that takes 70% of my mana, but I only need mana to shoot Raging Spirit.

Almost level 70, doing some maps now. Its fun

Re: Path of Exile

oh yeah I forgot about that, its pretty widely thought as very underpowered unless you're using it with righteous fire (massive life/es and degeneration) I believe.

probly heals your zombies tho so maybe its decent

Re: Path of Exile

Any HC SSF starter build recommendations? Had some mild success with flameblast totems but everything else has been a complete failure.

Re: Path of Exile

if you really liked flameblast totems but want something slightly different, I really liked my HC SSF righteous fire totems

I dont know, it feels really fun in a weird way to me.

Its also basically neck-a-neck as best starter build with fb totems from what I read. ( i personally think its the best, and its pretty likely ill start off 3.0 as hardcore with RF totems, depending on the changes)

If you can get +totem life % on jewels you're golden. (alt spam them I guess?)

Since the base damage comes from their max hp.

I followed this guide https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/vi...1510181/page/1

Re: Path of Exile

Warchief totems are my go to. Super cheap/easy to start, but scale really well as you get better gear, so are perfectly able to do endgame eventually.

Something like this. Lots of survivability, lots of dps.
