    Ambush. I don't even dare to play Invasion because of how stupid hard these leagues can become. The previous 4 month leagues don't even stand close to these two.

    Damn, we coulda played together The other leagues are great, but I like that edge of your seat experience, which you can only really get from the hardcore leagues.

    Edit: Explosive -> LMP -> FUN!!

    We'll see how long it lasts, though. I probably should have done this on Templar or Witch.

    I am dying a lot. But I do need better equipment because I didn't care much what I had until this point.

    Got to Act 3 Merciless, lvl 63. Not sure if I will finish Act 3 tomorrow although I could just farm to 68 in City of Sarn and then surf my way to ending using parties. Got loads of uniques, about 6 I think, only 2 actually useful really.

    I still need Chain gem and lvl 60+ 6 socket bow. Actually I need to replace every single piece of equipment since it's near useless. Might as well start farming for gear on maps.

    Have a cringe at my build. I am PoE-dumb when it comes to planning builds. I need a machine next to me which can spit out the best build for the playstyle I want to play.

    Just picking resistance nodes, strength and HP nodes to get up my defense, got only 2k hp, cold and lightning is capped, fire still 20% and chaos -60% (don't know if it's worth to get it up since there are very little mobs who do chaos damage).

    I'm no expert, so I just follow FOTM and take it from there. I'm sure the pros can theory craft a build much better than what I can come up with.

    Managed to get 1/3rd through Act 3.

    So I hit lvl 66, found a map couple levels back too. Figured I would try and do it since the loweset level map is 66. Went in and quickly realized that maps are in a completely different league than regular content. If you have a difficult time in Merciless Act 3 then don't even bother with maps. You will be raped at the entrance and your body will be left to rot there.

    having all items Unique is not really a good thing :P, you need to find balance between uniques and rares.

    oh nice soulmantle you got there m8 it would be a shame if something happened to it ^^

    ive found a couple of low level uniques aswell peragine hat, quill rain , sadimas gloves, and that evasion chest that gives 40% of physical dmg taken as lightning dmg and -66% lightning ressist. if i only where able to get some 200%+ lightning ressist from somewhere lol,

    im working on my third build now after my summoner is starting to hit brick walls everywhere. ran a merciless corrupted area in solaris last night and went from 68% exp bar to 0% from trying to kill the maker of rain for a vaal spectral throw.. got a little pissed lol doing a tanky reave duelist now

    Found a bunch more uniques, some trash, hit lvl 70, got fed up with the game. I am done, let the treasure rot.

    Time to shower, get in a robe and listen to Let it go on repeat.

    I was foolish enough so I jumped back in the game into Invasion league thinking:"Maybe I am not done with this game after all". Then I met The Duchess and realized I am so totally done with this game before I even hit lvl 10.

    Invasion is bad for me.. I get sleepy farming the same place over and over. On the first day I was getting ready to get to merciless when I ran into a huge white pack seemed but somehow I missed a unique boss which stomped me instantly. Since then I have not felt like playing more because I will probably just die again in merciless. I hate how slow things are at low levels..

    I am almost thinking of playing ambush but...... I already get sleepy farming in hardcore leagues so in softcore I think it would be a lot worse lol. I also hate that I would be behind everyone else :/ Before the leagues started I was testing a spectral throw - GMP - cast on crit - EK - arc - life leech build and that was insanely fun. Not having a 5-6 link to play is the main reason I am not going to play ambush with that build (and the no risk of losing char).

    So.... I am just waiting for races / one week leagues. I am pretty sure there will be a one week "improved" cut throat league this season which I am most excited about.

    softcore is not so bad, you can actually make a build there that is fun to play, then just stock HP all the time in HC and worry about desync and other shit.

    Hardcore is fun but not invasion deaths like these... I did hear though invasion is getting nerfs.

    Invasion needs nerf, corrupted areas past Normal difficulty need nerfs, they are stupid hard. That's why I didn't even get to level 10 last night. Met The Duchess in Upper Submerged Pass and she spawns 3-4 massive zombies with insane HP while she has so much HP of her own that you would think she is like 15 levels above you. Not mention her model is stupid large along with the big zombies and those small spawnlings or whatever, you get trapped in that area just like that, in a matter of seconds and there is nothing you can do about it.

    I don't even want to imagine how stupid strong unique bosses other areas have.

    EDIT: I just want to add that I was playing Marauder, lvl 8, all HP, armor and life regen nodes. I had lvl 5 two handed rare sword which gave me accuracy, attack speed, elemental damage. I had found and equipped the following items

    http://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Karui_Ward
    http://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Lochtonial_Caress

    and I still died to Duchess with 2 trips back to camp until I ran out of portal scrolls. Yes, not many of those stats actually benefit me in that moment but the ones that did, still gave me a huge boost for the level I was at that time.

    Ah, so you don't need to stack HP in "softcore"?

    Great logic you got there.
