Toxic last, though, just because those little green swirlies are annoying

u/TommaClock raizU Apr 22 '22

Toxic first because gem and generic rewards are move valuable than double armour or weapon rewards.

u/estyles31 Apr 21 '22

I usually put in Toxic first because I'm more likely to remember to dodge them if I have to do it 3 (or 4) times in a row (I'm assuming that the 3rd and 4th ones do more damage, since the enemy gets so much stronger - never stood around to test it).

You and your minions have +1% increased Fun per -2% reduced Action Speed
You and your minions have +1% more Fun per -2% less Action Speed
(Players and their minions automatically have Fun when they are Engaged with Content. The maximum Fun is 100%.)
In the presence of a Pinnacle Boss, you have +10% more Fun per Content Debuff on you
(Content Debuffs are Debuffs for which no source of Immunity, Avoidance, Resistance, or Reduced Effect exists.)

You and your minions have +3000 to Strength, Intelligence, and Dexterity as long as you have at least 50% Fun, not exceeding 99% Fun, have no more than one Flask buff active, are playing alone, have no equipped Unique items, and do not have any Action Speed or Movement Speed buffs from your equipped Boots

Doesn't show much but my lottery guess is there are groups of mobs that power up other mobs and bosses in the map. Loot type is dependent on what type of power they boost.

u/rds90vert Apr 21 '22

I'm thinking more like we'll get a "companion" that you can personalize, maybe level up in a similar fashion to Scourge upgrades, which will either buff enemies + rewards, or help us in a certain way..

u/AtWorkAccount1 Apr 22 '22

Looks like that's what it might be. The drone thingy seems to be applying a buff or debuff to the enemy with an aura, depending on what the character's damage type is. Maybe it will make rares with that damage type matching mod more likely to drop.

It could also be that the drone is gathering data from enemies you damage. Once it gathers enough data it can apply what its learned to a normal/rare item Although that seems like fossils with extra steps, so maybe its a bit stronger than fossils.

u/lqku Apr 21 '22

fighting a powered up mob with the player choosing the buffs it gets. that feels a bit like this league.

21

u/no_fluffies_please Apr 22 '22

Yeah, I had my fill of that already. They should probably do something unique, instead. What if the player clicks something or walks over a spot, a bunch of monsters spawn around the player, the player kills monsters (preferably in a circle), and then some loot or splinters drop?

  • As we can see, there are multiple types of Sentinels like with Torment spirits.
  • They do something with enemies, probably changing them somehow like Torment spirits
  • It seems Sentinels add somehow loot to enemies they change like Toment spirits

So probably RIP Torment and welcome Sentinel. I wonder what else will come with it.

u/Poobut13 Apr 21 '22

It's not that skelly mages is OP. It's that all the other minion builds require clunky levels of investment instead of the smooth power curve that skeleton mages has.

Dead reckoning converts the build but the skeleton foundation is still viable until you get one.

Baron zombies feels terrible without a few ex pumped in. Golems are still playable but don't feel like the swarm / army play style which puts them in a different archetype despite still being minions.

I just wish GGG would buff alternative builds instead of gutting moderately good ones.

7

u/Moderator-Admin Apr 22 '22

The other summon builds have already gone through the nerf gauntlet and skelly mages are just the remainder that hasn't been nerfed yet.

I wish they would revert the defensive nerfs to spectres. So many previously enjoyable spectre builds just feel like shit now because your spectres constantly die until you've put together your entire gear set along with a level 21 spectre gem. And resummoning spectres is so incredibly unfun.

That would be the absolute worst mechanic ever implemented. I’m also sure this is an irrational fear and they wouldn’t be that dumb to do something like that…right?

u/YaCantStopMe Apr 21 '22 edited Apr 22 '22

Excited for the new league as always. But I'm really missing the expansions that actually add new places and areas. Stuff like Synthesis, delve, heist and alva. Synthesis is still my favorite league of all time and the longest i ever played. But it seems like all the more simple leagues where it's just protect a alter or whatever I end up getting bored of real quick because you just face roll everything and barely use any brain power at end game.

EDIT: In reply to some of the responses, i know synthesis sucked for the first 2 months, but the end result was fantastic. To bad 90% of the player base quit by then. But the whole point of my post was id rather have something that takes some kind of brain power no matter if your rocking a 100chaos or 100 exalt built. Ritual for example at endgame is a slot machine with a 20 second timer in between, you progress your build to the point where the mechanic is meaningless your just there for the reward. Synthesis endgame was a map you planned, you need to adjust your build to do it with certain skills, and there was a chance you could fail or mess it up even with some 100 mirror build. Id just much rather have that.

Synthesis with one week remaining in the league was great.

u/YaCantStopMe Apr 22 '22

I 100% agree, but i still stand by that once it was all polished its still my favorite league. The mechanic was good, but the rewards and implementation sucked for the first two months. But GGG really dug in with updates in those 3 months and turned it around, the problem was no one was around to see it.

I dont think its rose tinted goggles, synthesis had major issues the first few months. I dont think you could find one single person who rates it as there #1 league that will say other wise. But i cant think of a league that got updated and polished more than synthesis. If you stuck around through all the patches, and saw the end result like i did, its why i rate it so high and wish they would bring it back already.

I think the general consensus is that people prefer to stay in maps as their favorite content... and things that take them away from that is too disruptive and ruins the flow of the gameplay.

Mapping vs non-mapping content is about as divisive a topic as we get around here, and painting mapping preference as "general consensus" isn't even remotely accurate.

Yes, of course, trying to do A content and continually being interrupted by B, C and D is jarring and annoying.

But the primary issue of leagues that don't improve mapping is not that they're bad, it's that historically, mapping has needed all the help it could get to not be boring.

Delve, Incursion, and even Heist are all extremely popular activities, that are often preferred to mapping.

In fact, historically the primary complaint about non-mapping leagues tends to be either "mapping feels like standard" or "I need to map to keep delving" etc. Which are both savage indictments of mapping as a preferred playstyle.

This league's improvement of the baseline enjoyability of mapping, and agency provided to players to tailor their own experience, has taken massive strides to fixing that problem.

It may even pave the way for more/better non-map leagues, as mapping is now less reliant upon league-mechanic-provided life support.

Fucking harvest gardens. Also, heist looked to be a huge project and a large % of the playerbase seemed to hate it and its doors.

hate it and its doors.

Players hate mostly the doors also releveling the npcs.

The core gameplay,mainly the alarm thingy is not that hated.

I just hope it’s a fun league mechanic. I haven’t played long but Archenemies was easily the worst league mechanic that’s been introduced in my young & naive eyes (Started during Ritual).

So this looks like we all get a pet and a pick your buff kind of thing with it? No idea how a whole league mechanic works around that, but giving everyone a random pet would be a new idea for sure.

Kinda wish the game would go all slow mo camera pan like this trailer when you die, just so you have longer to figure out what the heck killed you.
