Meaning I'm actually quite worried about the fight mechanics. It seems more and more bosses keep using abilities that need to be dodged WAY too fast after eachother. How on earth can melee's find a gap to even attack a boss?(close range) Watching this boss shows that there's barely any time(none almost) to even get to the boss to attack it if one were a melee. I've noticed as melee on my last playthrough, that melee is more and more at a huge disadvantage versus bosses. We either take all the major hits and keep attacking the boss, or we keep dodging and cannot attack the boss at all.


Came here to post this exact reply.

How on earth is melee meant to take on this boss with the bullet hell that is going around?
Seems that if you dare use anything with multistrike you are dead in this fight while Cyclone and Earthquake will probably have a blast doing this.

Looking cool, but dat spike damage, lol... it will be prob. overtuned at league start and nerfed later :)

But wasn't he in melee range half the time when attacking with his ranger?

Though i tried multistrike only a few times, seemed really dangerous to be locked in place against hard hitting bosses / big groups of monsters. Ditched it for something else. Usual DPS/Defense tradeoff?

(Disclaimer: my main melee char is only lvl 82, but beat Merc Izaro and Malachai on HC)
meh, not impressed
YES I support the game, NO I dont agree with many GGG decisions
Atlas of Worlds is the worst thing that happen to POE.
Lab still sucks balls.

Does the Atlas progression carry over from hc to standard when you rip or do you have to fill out the whole atlas all over again? (because I refuse to spend more than 15 minutes in standard)

Do not make the mistake of me wanting this game to be easy though, I like challenging content that we can overcome with enough strenght/power/gear/good build etc, but 1-hit kills totally undermine any character progression This is my opinion atleast.


Agreed. There's a difference between making it challenging, and making it "why do I even bother" ridiculous. And, to be quite frank, that video makes the Guardian of the Hydra look like it fits the latter category. My response was "Eff THAT noise."

Afaik, Atlas is league-specific, like masters & Uber trials, so the state doesn’t carry over when your char dies, but it will carry over when leagues are merged.

If the new stuff looks like this, the 1% can keep it, as far as I'm concerned.
Boss with spezialized attacks and magic?
Bullet spam in nice patterns?
Multiple phases, resulting in even more area covered?
Oneshot-Mechanics?


Check, Check, Check aaaaaand Check. Yep, must be new Touhou Boss.



PS.: I want that bowskin
