It looks like GGG are too lazy to come up w\ good challenge idea. Why do we need 3 of "Kill act bosses" challenges if you could just keep merciless difficulty one. Also please stop forcing us to do useless side quests.

These are for newcomers, they can just stumble upon a challenge to get a feel of it. Problem is there are 37 challenges designed for newcomers /sigh Thats a bit too much.

Now back to the rewards. People are saying the are free but they are truly not. For the time you need to put into playing the game you could have got yourself a minimal wage job on the side and just bought a much better MTX Set of your choice.

GGG released so many sets lately and if you compare the art of Essense challenge rewards to them...i think you better not.

Well, anyone who thinks that way is free to go do that instead. What's more, GGG would appreciate it more as well since it gives them more money. So go right ahead (assuming you can actually get said job - the economy isn't exactly in great shape atm).

As for me, I like the rewards. We haven't had a back attachment reward before, so this will make an mtx that I don't have in my repertoire yet. Much better than the repetitive weapon effects that I've got plenty of already. Plus it should go very well with the Arctic Set if I ever get that. And the portal is awesome! The only thing I'd wish is for the footprints to be something (pretty much anything) else as, just like the weapon effects, they've been done too many times back-to-back now and so I already have some to choose from.

GGG under 'fulfill a prophecy chain' you misspelled 'fulfill' as 'fullfil'.
the portal needs to be a lil bit taller. it looks so weird, but has the potential to look really cool. Look at when the templar passes by, his head can barely fit through the tip!
8/8 Overachiever
40/40 again? Let's see how this goes. I wish there was a longer break between leagues though.

Edit, The portal looks bad ass other rewards are just bad looking.

Any love for standard league?
Like I am playing challenge leagues only for exclusive content and rewards. I don't care about economy or fully completed challenges (which usually requires sick time investment I can't offer) at all. There is no gap to enjoy what I collected or build over years and that's kind of sad.

Well, you get the whole Atlas to enjoy, no?

Or I can enjoy Atlas together with Essence league content which includes:

- new encounters in form of frozen enemies (possibly new unique monsters or bosses)
- new crafting (includes few unique mods)
- exclusive unique items
- exclusive MTX rewards

There is zero incentive to play permanent leagues.

ohh yeah ... Challenges im coming ....hype hype hype
> new encounters in form of frozen enemies (possibly new unique monsters or bosses)
[Strongbox+Torment] mechanic, no reason to be hyped at all.

> new crafting (includes few unique mods)
inb4 for an average Joe this "new crafting" would make the exact same effect as current so-called "crafting" is, i.e. save your orbs, buy what you need from poetrade, don't even try to craft.

> exclusive unique items
Will be in std in 3 months anyway, also no risk of being "scammed" by GGG into purchasing seems-to-be-OP item which SUDDENLY gets a giganerf.

> exclusive MTX rewards
The only reason, really. But except the portal rewards are meh, and very low percentage of players can (or even try to) complete 36.

Conclusion: there is zero incentive to play Essence league.
And worst change is putting almost all bosses in new version of maps into fucking small areas, where you can't kite well or dodge stuff. What a terrible idiot invented that I want say to him: dude flick you, seriously flick you very much.
