    I just picked up an Extractor Mentis from a Menagerie thing. Is that build enabling or anything? It seems to be worth a few chaos but I can't figure out why.

    I can't imagine folks wouldn't mention it if they did, but if you find a Fenemus beast (Hybrid Fenumal Arachnid? Something like that?) and/or get the ability to beastcraft the Aspect of the Spider suffix on to something, I'd be real interested in buying that craft from you.

    Crushing maps atm. Build is coming together nicely, though I'm not as sadistic as Rius and it might take me longer than a day and a half to complete my atlas you freaking psychopath

    Got uber lab done. Build is tanky AF now. Not maxed but 88% phys reduct and 56% block chance for attack and spell right now with flasks. Damage is fine as well with lancing. Had an EX drop and sold another item for an EX so bought a 450dps phys sword and just clearing shit.

    The last boss is fun as hell. Dunno what people are whining about on reddit. Going to be tough to get the challenges but I powered through it with one death.

    I watched a video of someone running it so I didn't lose my portals and I had fun with it. I think the complaints are that it doesn't telegraph what you're supposed to do very well and there's some unavoidable chaos damage in the final phase.

    I probably didn't find it too bad because I'm using Arc as my main skill. Someone with a non-"meta" build would have a lot of trouble with that fight because it does seem like a DPS check of sorts.

    Pretty much a cookie cutter dual wield glad. When I run bleed I try to get some good attack speed. I got all the dual wield block nodes. Iron Reflexes to focus on phys reduction. Resolute Technique. Iron Grip, Point Blank, life nodes. When I run bleed I also run Crimson Dance cause it feels better to me. I went to gratuitous violence and versatile. Running best rare/unique pure phys in main hand. In offhand its Beltimber's for the extra proj and farshot. I was running ichi for awhile. And then a high dps dreadbeak. Now just a 2ex 450 pdps sword. Running War banner, Vaal Haste, vuln, cwdt, bloodrage etc. Links for lancing is brutality, maim, pierce, vicious proj, faster/slower proj swap.

    I like that going tanky frees me from needing to use abyssus for now heh. I dont need it but might for end game. I can just stand and bang with most stuff right now if I can setup with banner and vaal haste. Another variant im going to try at some point is swapping from dual wield to shield block nodes. Anvil and whatever I need to max block mid 70s. And grab an aegis aurora. Try to add some ES and see how that performs.

    Edit: Oh and one of the tricks for lancing, other than faster proj, is the spread of the projectiles is dependent on your cursor. So if you have a boss on you and you are hovering over the boss you will spread shot because the cursor is near you. To shotgun you shift click on the edge of the screen to hit the boss and you will get a nice thin stream.

    Okay, after watching Nugi's death where he had all flasks up, fortify, an endurance charge, full hp (6-7k with ES), in a T11 map where he gets one shot to Elreon, I am sealing this league into a Research Base and never going inside.

    Yeah the more I play, read, and see how strong these mobs are, the more interested I am in @mccart 's nebuloch build.

    I've thought about it, tbh.

    They feel way fucking overtuned. And yes you get good stuff, but I'd even take a more conservative RNG style over impossible content.

    I started playing this for the first time. I have no idea what I'm doing but this witch is throwing around enough lightning and fire already that I guess I'm having fun.
    The way identification and town portals work has given me scurvy though, so there are definite troughs in my experience to go along with the peaks.

    D3 makes portals and IDing items very simple. I can get how players moving from that system will notice a certain clunkiness.

    I started dying to conspirators around level 10 maps. I pretty much stopped progressing at level 88 due to being an idiot who can't leave a fort alone. Forts will kill you because they have those buffs inside which are very dangerous to take out. Also the ability of the conspirators to portal right onto your ass when you are trying to run away can be challenging.

    You almost pick up enough ID and portal scrolls on accident clicking other things later in the game that you have a hard time running out.

    ZiggyD is playing cold occultist on his stream with a build link, and consequently all my extra 22% Rime Gazes from when I was corrupting them finally sold for 15-20c each =)

    Considering listing my +2 Rime Gaze for a couple ex and seeing if I get any takers

    I got my chaos res up to a paltry 16% and finally those two shennanigan-doing chaos jerkwads are controllable.

    Of course this is me keeping them down to 1 and 2 stars until I get the rest of my life leech squared up.

    Then it's time to grind out a Starforge.

    Blah, I feel like I've had the worst luck with drops this league. Almost all my wealth has come from the chaos recipe, and the one good drop I've had, I'm using (clear mind).

    Hell, I even picked up a rime gaze to double corrupt and of course it went *poof*.

    hum. thanks. the whole corruption thing is kinda confusing to a semi-noob.

    Any tips for completing the Atlas as a SSF? Having trouble getting past tier 5 or so and the damn Shaper influence Zana wants me to purge keeps on appearing in maps I just can't seem to get anywhere. Back in Delve I bought a lot of maps from Zana but it seems her inventory barely restocks (and is crap anyways because I haven't done the Shaper thing) so that's not very helpful. I did get a bunch of rare unid'd tier 4-5 maps from a safehouse raid, those might help me push forward a bit (or kill me horribly).

    Her inventory restocks when you do an atlas objective for her.

    When you say completing the atlas do you mean getting maps or you are having difficulty completing the levels?

    Zana's inventory restock do seem much reduced from the previous system (in addition to the loss of inventory restocks on Zana levelups), as well as slightly more random? One restock had three yellows in it while the next one had tier 1-3s.

    I'm definitley noticing slower Atlas progress this league because of it.
