You're an exile. There is no such thing as safe.

True that. Makes me want the cutthroat leagues that are coming in a few months to get here sooner.

i would have expected these kind of players to be more wary of the reflects. he must be pissed XD

Yeah, but its all in the spur of the moment:
- He was dual wielding (so less defense vs. 1H+shield)
- He was wearing 5 XP-boosting Uniques (so less defense vs the stronger Uniques)
- He got cursed via Necromancer with Flammability I think
- Party member Vaal Cyclone'd the pack of mobs
- He DD'd them, affecting all of the mobs within that Reflect Pack
- Dead




Update:
- Lvl 67 now. Switched to full-on Detonate Dead build and started doing Maps. Almost died in my first one against this crazy Invader. Will definitely take it slow now since there's still plenty of time in the Race left. No need to rush.

Damn, RIP. And yeah, Act 2/3 Cruel is a very crucial point in the progression of all characters imo. Really tests your character and if you can persevere, Act 1/2 Merc will be fairly straightforward and easy.

But yeah, I'm definitely considering going back to my Ambush character. Invaders tacked on with Map Mods in this Race is pretty brutal. I practically have a close-call every Map I run haha.

Welp, well I just RIP'd in a Lvl 70 Map on my 68 DD Templar. Got chain-frozen from Orra Greengate. There was a Hexfont Rare pack nearby so I think it casted Frostbite on me while Orra's RoA is laced with Added Cold.

Was a bit trapped too, since I didn't want to run to a side because I knew an Invader was waiting for me.

Still got plenty of time in the 2 Week Race. Gonna reroll.

Since its 2 Week Race related,

https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/928665

The two-week charity race is going really well! As you can see from the ladder, players are reaching record-setting levels because of the presence of both Ambush strongboxes and Invasion bosses. There's still plenty of time to reach level 40 to become eligible for the awesome physical prizes. The hosts of the State of Exile podcast have posted the most recent episode here - check it out!

We've now raised $20,125 for the Child's Play charity. There are six days left and we're raising around $500/day at the moment, so in order to encourage more donations, I've decided that I'll shave my head if we raise at least $25,000 for charity. It's winter here, so that'll be a substantial cold resistance penalty, but it's for a good cause!

By the way, Build of the Week 206 is ready to be posted tomorrow. The player who contributed the build is actually using that build right now in the two-week race and is in the top ten with it :)
