ZiggyD Showcases Five Map Bosses from Atlas of Worlds

I've been pretty critical so far, but now I can see where a lot of the time went. If the new maps all have interesting little mechanics like this it should be a lot more fun.

Here's hoping the bosses don't just die in one hit, i'd like to actually engage with these mechanics.
Damn, that Riftwalker looks awesome! Any chance that we can get some related MTX? ;)

So far these new bosses look really punishing for melee builds while being a lot easier for highly mobile ranged ones. Hopefully there will also be some bosses that work the other way around or some mechanioal changes for "true" melee skills (as in "not earthquake")!

Apparently you missed the part where GGG's idea of balance has generally consistently been: Make it one-shot you so it can be called "hard", but make it one-shottable by any major metabuild. Nothing's allowed to survive a hit from a high end meta build, not even bosses. But constant one-shots IF you ever get hit are fine; you're not supposed to get hit. At all. Ever. Partially because you're one-shotting everything. How's it going to hit you if it's dead before it gets on-screen?

Which is why PoE just gets more boring every version update. It's like they're trying to be the counterstrike of ARPGs or something. Traps revolve around this, the new Gorge boss revolves around this, the list goes on. Nevermind that with that positioning you're never going to walk out onto the heated floor in that boss room anyways, but hey, appearance of "difficulty"!

Perhaps some year GGG will learn to give bosses real HP, and focus less on one-shotting people and getting one-shot by them. That's the year PoE will become genuinely interesting.
People who don't like the Labyrinth are not a minority: Be heard - say you don't like it in your signature. Don't leave complaining about lab to others - GGG needs to see how many people dislike it. Ascendancy must be gated on true ARPG content, not a poorly-crafted internet Legend of Zelda wannabe.

I know right? I'm completely for a mechanic that slows player damage down so that theres a maximum cap you can do with each attack, allowing the bosses to actually fight back. Of course, with the increased time to defeat them, rewards would also need to be adjusted higher, but I think it would be refreshing to see.

That and it would encourage more melee builds because off screen bow shenanigans can only do so much per second.

Its sad to see that GGG give all their previous to the most boring streamer while there are a lot of quality ones that deserve and could explain stuff better than a streamer that most likely wont reach that endgame


Says a guy with 25 challenges completed. Ziggy has reached endgame in any given league. He has done any boss, and he helped the coomunity a lot. Stop writing stupid things about other people please!
What does challenge has to do with this? Challenges are optional carrot on a stick, no point in wasting time doing 1000 Voll... i just play the game and get challenges if it happen to be on the path.

An even that, if i was a total noob, what would it change? you dont have to be a comedian to be able to judge if a comedian is bad or not

its easy to be a great source of information to the community when the Devs give him the exclusivity about these informations...
ZiggyD is the Labyrinth of streamers, some like it, some dont, but GGG will make sure to push it down ur throat to make you like it

You just lost all credibility in your arguments / discussions if you think you actually had to do 1000 Voll.

LOL at that giant goat from hell though I can see he won't be a laugh riot with some mods rolled.

What has happened to Megara and Lady Mightflay? I hope they are relocated. These ladies are 2 of my faves. I was also hoping that finally Thistlesage would get the gig he deserves.
