Quitting the game pretty soon..

Let me start of by saying i was on the team of defending the game's flaws , but that was until you reach late game ,if i knew how this game presented itself after the main campaign (which is actually what the game is about ,the campaign is just a short story with medium difficulty until you finish it) i would have refunded the game ,but unfortunately it takes you more than 2 hours and i was shit out of luck :)

I died once to Edric , twice to Lambach , and about 5 times to Heimlock , i didn't research guides or builds or tactics or anything , just played like a veteran blindly and had fun quite a lot, everything was reasonable and i played regular mode , not easy story mode ...BUT THEN!

My biggest problem is with champion/boss expedition dmg after expedition 100, i'm level 71 full melee and with rage build , and i have 60k hp with 3,5k resistances (about 50% reduction on all dmg) almost all strikes from all boss types 1 shot me, and not their abilities which i can track and dodge...the normal attacks do it...Do you guys know what i can do? i cant give up any more dmg because expeditions already take a long ass time , and i cant forgo damage and there's no other way to survive? that bulwark spell that creates a shield around you , literally gets destroyed after 1 hit, and theres 30 more expedition levels you can reach and i find no way to survive that sheit.

AND PLEASE ,don't let me get started on the difficulty of the uber boss variants of main act bosses , i find no conceivable way you can defeat those without hacking or cheating the game.

If anyone knows a functioning full melee build (does not have to involve bleeding edge) that i can use to have a smoother time , otherwise..i'm pretty much done with this game until they balance and nerf the mobs,..haven't played it in a week and came to see the latest patch which isn't even a patch , it's something 1 single employee did while high on 1 day's work :)

And lastly , the leveling in this game is HORRENDOUSLY slow after level 65 , i'm not exagerating when i say it could take you a whole month of playing 6-8 hours a day to reach max level , the XP from going higher difficulty expeditions is barely even noticeable , and magic find increases the number of rare items that drop , but it does NOT increase the chance to get legendaries or uniques i can guarantee that for you.

Okay, so, in a nutshell, you got bored / reached your limit.
Well, play something else for now, content will be coming and improving then you can enjoy it again, or simply build more chars if you enjoy the experience right now. (or push the same char further)

I'm not there yet but i can't wait to find a uber boss map and i'm so excited when i read that they are practically unbeatable! Sounds like a delicious challenge!!! Not everything in a game is meant to be rolled over with zero effort, and if there is something that seems impossible, that is just GREAT! After all, the worse thing that can happen is having nothing to look forward to, being bored and done with everything! (desiring is better than owning you know)

It's all about enjoying the journey man, you just want the reward, but it's working towards the reward that should be enjoyed.

LOL. Play online, find a tank and let them take the hits you just focus on getting the damage done.

You want to deal high amounts of damage and on top of that tank a boss that is 29 levels higher than you? Sounds like stupidity to me.

here some tips:
- level up.
- play online (find a group)
- if you want to tank then let damage go, its is obvious the higher the expedition lvl the harder it will become AND the more time it'll take to complete. SPECIALLY if your playing solo.
- dont know if there are special bosses but im playing tank and all bosses have actions they do before they atack and you are able to doge all. some are harder to doge than other but they are not impossible.
- pretty sure there is a melee build that focuses of cousing fire in fury or something, havent tried it out since im tank/healing and thus sacred damage. but you should be ok dealing fire damage.

In my oppinion, having no other choices than playing with a tank or having to tank yourself to progress isn't a good idea.
That limlits to much the amount of builds you would desire to play and if you choose something too different from these builds, you'll get easily frustrated.

What a sore loser. You die cause your resistance is too low. I only have 20k health at lvl75. My resistance is 5k each. I deal 20k dmg. I'm doing ok. Love the game other than the disconnecting from server shit. =)

Taking it from the bottom
- leveling is ok. Max level should be a reward for best and most dedicated players. I played Ultima Online in 1999 and it took me year and a half to max out my Paladin. Problem of current gamers is that they need to have everything immediately or its boring crap :p Learn some patience, good for life.
- Soloing boss who is 30 levels above you with melee should be difficult as hell, if not impossible. I had a melee char and didnt got even that far honestly
- Wait a month for a few balance patches, it is quite a roller coaster as of today so if you dont manage it. give it some time to develop.

I don't have anything against the difficulty of a hard game or to have to play a lot to get max level...
What I wanted to say is if talents are unavoidable, there is no point giving you the choice to take it or not... because those who won't take it just won't progress and in the end, every one will take those same talents which, in my opinion, isn't a good option.

@Infidel : I never mentioned my experience in the game but you touch my point. If I don't have enough resistance or life points, that means I have to take more of that but, if I have to do that to progress, this is not a choice at all. Which can be frustrating.

@Azazel_cz : Oh, I will play, change anything I have to change to progress if needed and I will wait to see how things are going to develop. I wasn't complaining here, just giving my opinion.
I don't share the feeling of Robymyz, but in some way, I think I can understand why he sent this message.

you can try my build. I am 74 and clear 130+ (still climbing).

The reality is this is late game. It doesnt have the training wheels that leveling has, you will hit a wall at some point if you try to plow through it. For a melee build, you need a LOT of resistances if you want to live. You don't need to be a "tank," but you certainly can't be tissue, and 50% resistances is fairly low.

I currently run about 82% (1100-1200) resistances but i still hit 200-500k crits with Bleeding edge and probe stance.

This is the journey, though. Fish for some good drops and then see if you can push higher.

Hope it helps.

(Just remember, going from 50% damage reduction to 75% means you are cutting your damage taken in HALF. There's a lot of room for growth here.)

in order to get to higher rifts u need to craft gear, but crafting is really hard as i hardly never see any reagents drop

Shilded Purifier boss is just cheating, every hit is either instakill or close to it and he is immune to everything but some ground aoe dots 90%+ of the time. If that was not bad enough, he has an endless supply of 5 or so railgunners with silly-large healthpools.

Wait until you meet an Aurora Knight with Tough and Regen affixes. At expedition level 160+, they have 50-60mil hp and spawn 25mil hp mobs that instantly heal him every 30-40 seconds. So you need around 1.5mil dps to kill him, which is impossible at this point.
