I'll start saying that i've been playing PoE for 1k hours since i quit D3. I came back recently to realize how good some things are here compared to other games.
The game surprisingly still gave me hours of fun when i logged onto my non-seasonal characters and played some rifts. I wasn't aiming for the leaderboards or anything like that just roleplaying, listening to music and slaying monsters non stop and getting rewards in every rift. I had all cosmetics unlocked and didn't had to pay for any lootboxes or microtransactions to customize my characters. The animated wings were so beatiful and made my crusader look like a true god.
I just cannot explain how wrong i were on some of the things i said before i left. This game was worth every euro i spent on it. Glad i still can enjoy this and even if there isn't anything new the game on it's own is great. It doesn't feel buggy at all and it's the smoothest action i've ever experienced.
Just wanted to shoutout all D3 fans out there before we get D4 MMO version with lootboxes and such. I'm just glad i got to play D3 again.
