    Hey all, long time TOGer but have been on sabbatical for a couple of years but recently discovered PoE. This is what i was hoping D3 was going to be. Anyways, are most people on the NA server? I went with the Singapore server thinking that would be better ping wise for us here in Australia.
    If there are others on the Singapore server my toons are all kill___.

    At least during the beta I was able to hop from one server to the other and my character came along with me unlike with most games. Worth a try anyway

    Hi, servers in PoE are a bit different from others.
    You just play on one with best ping to you. But you can chat with anyone, also you can party even with people from NA, but then it depends who is first in target location. This determines on what server the location will be.
    So for example you are on Singapore and I am on Europe. We party together. You come to location where I am and then join Europe server - which means possibly greater ping...
    But still it is possible. So everyone can be in touch with whoever they want.

    The game is still pretty addictive. Playing on the EU server with a Templar called Blingstar.
    I set out to recreate my dual-totem-templar from closed beta just because I liked the playstyle. Although the dual-totem skill and totem support gem are nerfed now, I still see possibilities for a dual-totem build without traps or other summons.
    Started as a Fireball caster, then added Fork and Lesser Multiple Projectiles.
    Currently using Flame Totem, with Lesser Multiple Projectiles, Added Lightning Damage and Chance to Ignite support gems.
    The plan is to use the Totem support gem with my Fireball/Fork/LMP to send fireballs everywhere, (but I need to kill Merveil to get the gem)
    It should do less damage then the flame totem, but it has a much larger range. At least in closed beta mobs died faster to the fireball totem.
    Heading for the totem life and range skills in the center, but haven't planned any further. That is depending a bit on which totem will be my main attack: fireball or flame.

    Don't forget the Ping to the Singapore servers will not be ideal atm for Aussies to due to:

    On 10 January 2013, the cable was again severed, this time 1,126 kilometres from the Tuas cable station in Singapore, between repeaters 345 and 346.[10] Singtel have sent a repair ship to the site, expected to arrive in early February.


    But hopefully soon it will be repaired and better pings to go :)

    Anyone currently playing this?

    I'm enjoying the nice zen of click-kill-loot atm with my Bow Duelist when I have some spare minutes here and there.

    Hey guys. I just joined the site and am going around touching base in threads where I've been active in related games.

    This is one of the primary games I wanted to get a consistent group to play with here. I don't have any high level characters yet, I've not actually beaten Normal mode yet. And I would love to put some effort into a HardCore group.

    I am a 3rd shifter, so I'm most available any day after 4-5pm PST. easily reachable on Steam, Skype, or any IM service.

    I play occasionally, it sure beats the heck out of Diablo 3.

    Myself and Lukus have been playing this for many months now instead of Diablo 3. I was playing it alongside TL2 and really like PoE and it's awesome it's made in NZ. I haven't had time to play it since starting NwO, but I would like to play it now and then if there's other toggers interested.

    I play regularly its replaced D3 on all levels now and I consider it the far superior game.
