Cluster Jewels and their Notables


"
And the game is bad. Poorly balanced, I know everybody says that, but it's just so goddamn true, like in general.


No not everybody says that. I've been spending the last few years trying to make a solid end-game build with every ascendency and it's been great so far. Only scion and saboteur left to try. Learn to play the game correctly.

GGG, heed these words. Less is more.

Prioritize fixing current balance problems instead of this new added mess.



If the "less is more" philosophy worked for ARPG design, then Diablo 3 would be regarded as a work of unabashed genius and both PoE and Grim Dawn (and probably Lost Ark too) would be universally dismissed as trash.

So i started reading them but then i thought "Whats the point?". So ive made my decision - i will follow my build and will think about those when i will find them. But looks interesting.

I agree Diablo was way to simple and stupid-proof thing. Just annoying.

How to trade it? Will be any possibility like metamorph`s affix?


You can trade the jewels, like any other item.


Yep, I know it. But how to search for specific stats, for example Prismatic Dance?
真香,只是这样三个月就根本不够了。
Looks like a nice idea^^

But with each update this game gets more complicated for new players.
Last season's atlas was plain horror to me.
It took me longer to build or plan the maps (+integrients) than actually running them which is a waste of time imho :P
I remember days when I just could play the maps not playing a map-manager game^^

Silly making these remarks in a PoE forum.

To give any weight to your point, you will need to head over to the D3 forum and post your comment.

What's wrong? Yeah, I thought so.
Lots of new passives that bump a % here, bump a % there, yank some shit here, yank some shit there. I would say it's a whole lot of nothing but of course it's not nothing. It's like a massive influx of little things here and there. The art work and the concept of being able to expand the tree out is a good feature but overall it just looks like more jewel clutter to fine-tune and solve for what exactly? You don't need these new jewels to progress into any aspect of the game since most of the game can be conquered with what is already there.

If they overhauled the passive system so that it's actually 10% or 20% of what it is now and the entire system hinged on this new engine of being able to branch out the tree in an entirely custom way then I would say it would play a pivotal roll but right now it's just yet more of the same: add a bit here to min max a bit there and run out of stash space.

On the toilet is the best time to read the forum.
Reallyyyyy not impressed with what I saw, at all. Most of what's there are just very, very minor tweaks. Major notables have drawbacks that effectively nullify what they do. If you want to super-specialize maybe these will be okay but, overall, they're a patent waste of time.


Are the nodes on a given jewel fixed? So they'll always be the same no matter where they're placed? Or are they like legion jewels and change depending on the socket?

How will these be affected by such things as intuitive leap or the aforementioned legion jewels?

Also... get rid of the two superfluous, wasted nodes to reach the socket (i.e. put the socket one point off of the main path!!!)


How about slicing off *ALL* of the outer ring large circles and turning them *ALL* into these jewels!!
