12/25/2012 12:31 PMPosted by IconoklastIf I wanted to play Diablo 2 ... I'd play Diablo 2. It's better than PoE so why bother with PoE. Yes PoE is a good game but when you take so many things from an already successful game of course it's going to be good, compared to Diablo 2 though it's mediocre. That leads to my original point, why play a mediocre clone when I can just play the real thing and have more fun.

essentially you're given a few choices at a time with most of those being stat increases like +5 dexterity

12/25/2012 03:09 PMPosted by Iconoklastwith some other games the stat distribution and skill tree are separate so you can assign points wherever you want right from the start
12/25/2012 03:09 PMPosted by IconoklastIn Torchlight 2 for example you are given 5 stat points each level to assign as you wish and 1 skill point to put into any ability you wish.

So here you went wrong if you know that this is no normal skill tree, its the "passive" skill tree.
Your active skills are seperated from the tree they are items and you socket them in your gear, so this tree is for the stat distribution, and you have a lot to choose from instead of simply str, int, dex.
And there are not so many + to basicstats as you mean, just look between the highways ;)
So this is in the core a real clone of the Diablo 2 mechanics...
Yes I know that skills are gems that any class can use, I don't like that, I think that classes should have exclusive abilities. TL2 is different than D2 in so many ways that it makes it okay to copy mechanics.
