My husband discovered Path of Exile in its’ early beta. Since we both love hack ‘n slash games, we couldn’t resist and we joined the gory ride. After a long break from the game, we finally decided to roll another character, and try to go as far as we could.
At the moment, I’m following NeverSink’s Indepth Tornado & Archer Guide. Until Act 4 in “Cruel” difficulty, this build was going pretty smooth for me. I could clear about anything really fast with minimum gear requirements. I realize now that the fact that I didn’t need great gear at the beginning is why I started having a bit more difficulties later on. I feel like I constantly need to tiptoe through each dungeon. But I’m almost in “Merciless”, and I dinged level 60 last night.
My focus on the game is to first finish cruel, then check how to craft gear and flasks. Hopefully better gear will drop in merciless because I won’t give up this character until I’ve finished each and every boss in the last difficulty!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go kick Malachais’ ass *evil grin*.
