Is Diablo 3 +Reaper of Souls better than Path of Exile?

#11force_edgePosted 7/6/2014 5:26:58 AM
Path of Exile has a much more interesting and engaging skill system, but its high-level endgame content is locked out without some serious luck or incessant trading, because the drop system assumes that every player trades heavily. Trading is also hard to get into if you don't enjoy the stock market style fluctuations of the currency system.

Diablo 3 (with RoS) has a more shallow and rigid skill system. However, it's designed such that a solo player doesn't lose out on much even if he/she doesn't trade much, making it a lot more accessible because everyone is on a somewhat more even footing. The counter-argument is that in the long run, Diablo 3 players will lose interest faster.

Grim Dawn sucks. If anything D2 is miles better than it is

I have fun playing D3, but got really bored with PoE. It's all personal preference anyway.

No. People make up crap about PoE being bland and boring because they paid $60 for an online only game that sucks, so now every time there's a patch, they proclaim that literally everything is fixed. They've been doing it for 2 years. Don't bother with Diablo 3.

Just play PoE. It's free.

Diablo 3 is really fun now, far better than PoE. In my opinion

Diablo 3 >> Torchlight 2 >>>>>>>>>>>>PoE

I've got over 250 hours in Diablo 3, almost 100 in Torchlight 2 and like 10 in PoE. PoE got boring extremely fast for me, and the gameplay was pretty mediocre

It's really pathetic how desperate people are to try and put Diablo 3 over PoE.

"Everything's been fixed! Everything's been fixed! Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!"

Online only trash that has more in common with WoW than with Diablo 2.
#19Knighted DragonPosted 7/6/2014 7:40:21 AM
Yep, every single post in the history of humankind that insults PoE has been closet Diablo fanboys making things up.

That, or maybe they actually did change the game and made it better which is why every single time ARPG topics come up, everyone says Diablo 3 is far better than PoE now. GASP
