    Ya I really like the LE skill system. There’s a lot of options and support for how you want your skills to work and even how they interact with other skills, sometimes to the point of casting it for you, which can be fun.

    If you try an impactful node and don’t like it, you can just back that point back out and try something else later. When you do like it, you can often lean in even more with the branch nodes in one or more skills.

    Like I’m excited to try warlock, especially chaos bolts. It has a node that can trigger harvest and that sounds like a fun combo to build around. If it’s not, cool, I can do several other things with chaos bolts and see how it goes.

    Chaos bolts can trigger Harvest, Bone Curse and Rip Blood. You can also have Cthonic Fissure cast Chaos Bolts instead of Spirits, which means you can cast a Fissure, which casts Bolts, which casts Bone Curse on an enemy that casts Rip Blood on the enemy when the Bone Curse expires lol.

    No movement skill specialized but you can spec Harvest but leave it off your hotbar and just use unspecialized Transplant for movement.

    Something like this (ignore the passives I just threw in enough to qualify for the skills): https://www.lastepochtools.com/planner/VBMMb4eB

    Or turn the fissure into movement, which could be fun. Looking at your choices, that might not be worth it though.

    I thought I'd read somewhere that the devs were planning on a 1.0 sale price, but I can't find it now. Anyone have info on that one way or the other? The pre-order pet is pretty cute, but I also like saving money lol.

    On another note, it's funny how much better these guys are at showcasing their game than Diablo devs are. For one, getting streamers to demo stuff is way better than having your in-house folks (who sometimes clearly have no idea how to play the game at all). Any time I've watched even a couple minutes of an official Diablo video, I've ended up yelling at the screen "Nooo! What are you DOING?!"

    I think the ship sailed on saving money. There were a handful of times that it was like 10-20%-off on Steam, or to some degree via content creator shops which was how I got mine a few years ago.

    At this point, I imagine your options are $35, promo giveaways, or patience.

    If you look at some steam price sites its never been lower than 35 since release on steam at least. I recall hearing them saying it wouldnt be cheaper when it releases, but couldnt find a specific quote.

    What I heard wasn't a 1.0 sale, but that the game wouldn't go on sale again until 1.0. I think a launch sale might get a few of the early access people pissy though.

    Yeah, it's never once gone on sale in the oh... forever I've had it on my wishlist.

    I mean, I can afford it at full price, I just didn't want to if it was gonna be on sale in a week. I deliberately skipped early access because I didn't want to burn out early on it.

    That's why every sale I'm like "really, Last Epoch? Still never sale?"

    Hopefully the rogue gets the rest of its skills for launch. It's weird that they've been two short for so long.

    Really sad that I won't be able to get this game at release. Our credit card is out of control and we have some house repairs and car repairs that still need to be done.

    Maybe soon. There was shaman updates posted the other day, Paladin updates today, and I think they said to expect daily blog posts leading up to full release

    It looks very pretty -- sounds like the engine improvements are real! Apparently updated shader system and animations at the least, and yeah it's noticeable.

    I've been keeping my hype low and distracting myself with other games for the wait to 1.0, buuut my hype is starting to creep up.

    To be honest I'm bracing myself for lots of server fires next week too, just in case. They've had them several times before with big updates -- I hope they manage to deal with the load, but going to mentally prepare for lots of hiccups.

    yea at this point im assuming i wont be able to play on wednesday, and thats fine - makes me wonder if they picked a midweek release just so they had enough time to hopefully unfuck the servers before the weekend

    This is the future. This is what we built. This is what we wanted. It must have been. Because we all had the fucking choice, didn't we? It is only our money that allows commercial culture to flower. If we didn't want to live like this, we could have changed it at any time, by not fucking paying for it.

    So let's celebrate by all going out and buying the same burger. -transmet

    The devs have said they're implementing a true offline mode for 1.0, for people that want to go that way. I'll be braving the servers and the crashing, but hey its nice to have the option at least.

    This game is pretty. But not like, too pretty.

    I like me some GrimDark, but D4 suffers from what I call the "Skyrim Syndrome," wherein if I wanted to gaze upon a frozen (and/or muddy) hellscape for hundreds of hours of my life, I'd just look out my own damn window 7 months of the year.

    I'm a goth, Blizzard, but "drab" is not goth dammit. "Draped in random meat and skin" is not goth (looking at you, Druid armor).

    Anyway, LE has a nice amount of color in the "nice" places, and a "nice" amount of darkness in the mean places and I like it.

    Yeah, this game has good art direction. I remember going through the ruined era and wondering why the void cultists built all these skeleton themed buildings, and then got to the imperial era and realized it was actually the skeletons who did.

    Anyway, am I a weirdo for being excited about seeing the end of the story? I'm kinda thinking it's a 12 monkeys type thing, but that's no fun, so I hope I'm wrong.

It also reminded me of playing at Playamo Casino. Have you tried this site? Give it a try, it's a pretty interesting place to play.

    This game has one of the best art direction ever! Why are you comparing this to 12 monkeys?

    I'm with you! I love the time travel shenanigans and the mystery threads in there right now are super fun. It does a great job of playing with characters you meet in different time periods, and I think it will be fun to see how it all winds up.

    @KaiCor -- That's pretty much what begets the 12 Monkeys comparison. Time is being messed with and there are Mysterious Characters who aren't fully explained yet, as the early access doesn't have the full campaign. Currently available campaign spoilers:
    It's already doing stuff where friends you meet in earlier time periods become horrible undead monstrosities (bosses) in service of the Immortal Emperor in the Imperial Era, which lends itself to speculation

    1.0 Patch notes. The website went down for a bit when they posted. Looks back up now.

  • Options
    NogginNoggin Registered User regular
    OP updated a little, 1.0 patch notes are up (as linked above), and here's a clip of how you can play fully offline (also added to OP).

    Fully offline mode:
    • Added the ability to launch Last Epoch in a fully offline mode
    • This can be accessed through the Steam UI by following these instructions:
      - Right clicking on the game in your library
      - Select Properties
      - Under general there will be a section titled Launch Options
      - Under the dropdown menu you can select to launch Last Epoch in Full Offline Mode or have it ask you every time you launch the game
    • You will likely get prompted to choose this preference when you first launch the game after downloading the 1.0 version
    • In order to play the game online after launching in Full Offline Mode, you will need to fully exit and re-launch the game in non-Full Offline mode
    • Using Escape in Offline Mode now pauses the game
    • Feature differences in Full Offline mode:
      - Bug Report and Support Ticket buttons are removed
      - Chat item linking is disabled, though chat window can still be viewed
      - Region Selection dropdown shows as unavailable
      - Online character tab is hidden
      - Cannot return to the Landing Zone page after selecting Play Offline
      - A full restart of application is required to change between Full Offline and Online modes

    Oh damnit of course they're trying to ruin their own game by courting the PoE try-hard streamer class with this junk. I knew I should have kept my hype in check:
    All enemies have 2% more health
    All enemies deal 1% more damage
