I just found it out. Hack and slash Online only RPG which is also free.


I watched the videos they have put so far and... I must say that i am intrigued.

The game features a truly unique skill system clicky

The game will have a very strong competitive spirit click

And in terms of level design looks pretty good so far. There are large open areas where you can maneuver in big battles, and small narrow chockes in crypts.

The theme of the RPG is dark-ish.

It looks pretty dynamic. Yes, it does painfully look like Diablo, but the game will come out in the first half of 2011 waay before Diablo III. (So every Diablo hard core fan, like myself has enough time at least to try it.)

Hm.. the weakest part of the game, from what I have seen so far is the visual one. The trailer shows some very good level designs, and an impressive lightning system, but the color pattern they have chosen is gray-ish. Sure, it does give a tone of atmosphere(since like I said above the game has a dark theme) but overall it isn't anything mind blowing.

Then again, for a free game, the graphics are extremely good. (keyword is free)

EDIT: Register on here: http://pathofexile.com/ and get into the beta (when it starts that is)

EDIT EDIT: Apparently there are randomized levels and items.
 
The skill system is unique, but that automatically make it good? Maybe not, for example when you go as parties it might come out as harder to find your needed class calls since all of the skills are based on drops and only the core skills come from NPCs, it could mean that a warrior could completely change his play-style go caster while he is supposed to be a warrior. I really want to see what they do with the skill system since its still only in beta.

Actually never mind.

"Players can use any items or skills, providing they have enough of the relevant attribute requirements. There is the flexibility to dabble in unaligned attributes in order to use off-class skills and items. However, it is generally more efficient for players to invest in the attributes appropriate to their character class."
 
Elder, in the video the guy said that the gems will require certain attributes, so the higher tier spells for warriors will require a lot of str, wich the other classes won't have :p

EDIT: Nevermind... :D:D

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
