    People on any forum will mock a newbie question, (or in game as well), just the nature of the MMO playerbase it seems.

    Usually on official forums its because the "experts" feel the question is repetitive, or the information can be found in published materials (learn to search you often see)

    On a positive note it makes it really easy to get started on setting up your block list so you can focus on the more worthwhile replies and eliminate the jerks.

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    Some games have a terrible player base. Path of Exile has an entirely toxic player base.

    There are Douchebags everywhere my freind. Haven't noticed any stand out bad behavior on P.O.E myself. Not like on Terra for instance which is full of knuckle-dragging racist pedos.  Sorry to here about your experiances.

    What was your question? We can either answer it here and agree that those guys were douches or tell you it was worth some mockery.

    I haven't had issues with the forum community but PoE is still on my "maybe later" list until they make looting changes.

    So in other words POE's forums are jsut as bad as these forums.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    I was asking what people thought about the Witch class but only got answers that she is short, eats children and dances with the devil and one guy pointed me towards the skill tree because I was obviously stupid for not checking out every skill available in the game.

    You sure you're not just being cynical?

    Were they really trying to be mean? It's a very open question.. and you sound like you wanted a Witch guide as a response or something. You ain't gunna get that from forums. You ain't gunna get one for PoE either because unless someone gets a build off the forums.. no two people are playing the same kind of character.

    The Witch can kill things with spells. You can make the Witch into a 2H weapon fighter in PoE and act just like a marauder. You can have a Witch that uses a bow and uses all the Shadows magic traps. You can have them in plate armor and still cast all thier usual spells.

    It is impossible to answer your question. PoE lets you do what you want.

    Now, I'm not being rude.. so don't read it like I am. But you need to take a good look at the passive skill tree so you can understand that with that much customization at your finger tips, only you can decide how good your Witch is going to be. You see.. the 'classes' in PoE are basically just character skins. There are certain advantages and disadvantages due to thier positions on the passive skill tree but ultimately you can make ANY class be ANY class.

    Sadly this is how the internet turned out. Far too many people say a lot of things they never would say to anyones face.

    I guess it have to do with the fact that noone really know who you are on the net and the fact that the net and games just isnt for gaming geeks anymore.

    But you find a lot of toxic comments on any forum, it just aint possibel to moderate out it all.:(

    Why do you have to mock it at all?

    All i see on that thread is that some people were just joking around in a totally personally unoffensive way.. and you called them stupid.

    You're at fault here, not them.

    I can not believe you are so self rightous and blind that you can't see that the one with the messed up personality is you.

    Looking at your post on the POE forums, it looks like you were the only douche by the way you started calling people stupid after 3 replies where even the first one was helpful, though you feel it wasn't.

  • ThaliostThaliost LeiriaPosts: 99Member

    Yeah, it's OP's fault...

     

    On the 5th post he writes: "Doesn't everyone?

    More than half the game downloaded and no one has anything intelligent to say?

    Didn't really expect stupid people to have computers but well they are cheap these days and even a monkey can use them
    ." (nice one with the monkey...)

     

    The replies were harmless fun and not directed at you personally (except the 1st one a bit but even that one posted a useful link).

    I think that you need to do some more research before asking questions like this! The difference between classes is very small (mostly) and the more important question is what you want to do with your passive tree.

    http://www.pathofexile.com/passive-skill-tree - Dmillz

     

    Depends on oyur planned skill tree, active skills, and of course support gems...
    http://en.pathofexilewiki.com/wiki/Skills


    Any character can take any node from the tree (when he reaches it - different classes start on different locations) and evveyone can use any skill/support as long as he has the required stats.

    Now since the witch will be your first char you won't have any skills ready in your stash so you'll have to rely mostly on quest rewards (
    http://en.pathofexilewiki.com/wiki/Quest_rewards)

     
    Of course the witch get quite a lot of different spells at her choise, i would suggest you to specialise in an element and stick with it (but don't forget your defense(especially life, with the only exception if you spec into chaos inoculvation, but you would still need a LOT of life while you lvl your char (chaos inoculvation is worth it only on the higher levels))! A good build is a build which can survive the content!)

    Also don't be afraid to reroll a new char if you would discover that you don't like your first to much...

    You post a thread asking asking a relatively stupid question, and you're calling people "stupid" because they're trolling you for your own stupidity?

    Go read the PoE wiki and learn what the differences are between the 6 starting classes. Here, I'll even link you since it seems your Google-fu isn't up to par: 


    http://en.pathofexilewiki.com/wiki/Character_Classes - rrtson

     

    Your only comments back to the POE community are these...

     

    "Doesn't everyone?

    More than half the game downloaded and no one has anything intelligent to say?

    Didn't really expect stupid people to have computers but well they are cheap these days and even a monkey can use them."

    -You

     

     


    "Stupid is as stupid does - Forrest Gump" - You again

     

     Are you even reading your own thread? I found 3-4 people on it who've posted relatively decent information. What are you expecting these players to do? Play the game for you? Sorry I don't think this game has a proper working bot for you. You're straight up saying **** you to the community for even attempting to do any help for you. You don't even pay attention to the players who are giving you information and blatantly flame the playerbase. Then you come onto MMORPG.COM which is notorious for users to flame other users and expect a different response.

     Anyways, thanks for posting the thread that you flamed the POE community on. You deserved that mockery you got from it. You also deserve the mockery I'm giving you right now. So, please do us a favor and do some research, find builds on the forums you might like, watch videos on the game, read the wiki, and most of all play the game through trial and error.

    If you think that thread is bad then you haven't seen a bad thread, OP

    While some of the replies were hardly construstive it did show the commuity in a decent light i must say. You were the first to start flinging the insults about.

     I completely agree, with you. The OP deserves every last bit of flaming possible for the comment he/she made. You're lucky PoE doesn't go further with a Hall of Shame thread where they can move utterly stupid forum posts like this for the entire community to mock.

    The moderators of PoE allow flaming and will even join in on the fun at times depending on how utterly stupid someone can be for their comments. It's a mature game with a hadcore background. As such, they allow flaming and profanity on their forums. Besides, this OP deserves it for insulting the community.

    Adjusted the thread title just a little. Conversation is okay, just refrain from flaming specific people.

    The people I've met are insanely rude and tend to be more of an "elite" rather than helpful to newcomers.

     

    If you still have questions, you can send me a PM and I'll try my best to help you out. I've been playing PoE for quite a while.
