Are there any other MMOs like Path of Exile?

I know there is sorta Diablo 3, but that is more a singleplayer experience. Torchlight, but that is singleplayer as well. And Titan Quest, but that is definitely singleplayer.

Any actual MMOs though that are like PoE? Or is PoE pretty much the best there is? Is PoE pretty much the pinnacle of the top down loot based in its genre? I guess Ultima Online could sorta count, but its really different.

    I play POE in hardcore mode and I think it is the best but i'm biased and I can only play in hardcore. 

    Here are others:

    I prefer POE, I dabbled in Grim Dawn, but never gave it a fair shake if I'm still addicted to POE.

    Devilian. Guardians of Ember. Mu Legends will be available soon. Lost Ark may be available some time down the road. Marvel Heroes if you like comics.

    Just do a Google search on Action Role Playing Games (ARPG) as this is what this style of game has been called since first made popular by Diablo 1.

    If you want an actual MMO (which Path of Exile isn't), Marvel Heroes.

    Thanks :) However many ARPG are singleplayer focused. Was more wondering if there was any MMORPG ones like PoE. 

    Though I'll take a look at Marvel heroes. I have heard of it but never really looked more into it. Thanks @SedrynTyros :)

    PoE is an ARPG, like Diablo, Titan Quest, Grim Dawn, Victor Vran, etc. If you want an actual MMOARPG you have Guardians of Ember, Devilian, Marvel Heroes, Mu Legends.

    Look at the "action MMO". So it isn't an MMORPG, but it is an MMO.

    I don't care what you call it or what other sites say. MMORPG.com lists it as an MMO.

    Massively also calls it an MMO

    http://massivelyop.com/tag/path-of-exile/

    Official Site: Path of Exile
    Studio: Grinding Gear Games
    Launch Date: October 23, 2013
    Genre: Gothic Fantasy MMOARPG

    So you can call it whatever you want, I'm going to keep calling Path of Exile an MMO as said by both two major MMORPG sites, Massively and MMORPG.

    Now at least we can get back on topic.

    Thanks for the suggestions for games :) Marvel Heroes looks great, and seems to get good feedback for the most part. Though I think PoE looks kinda the best of them all, because so many character builds and endgame content one can do. But its nice to see what is around.

    Btw, does anyone have a good character build for a  Witch in PoE that is focused on summoning hordes of undead? I guess not following a build can lead your character to be really nerfed.

    you seem to care very much what someone calls a game. But really, who gives a crap about if someone calls Skyrim co-op mod an MMO-esque experience or what they call a game or if path of exiles is an MMO not (like massively AND MMORPG say it is). Doesn't hurt my game experience any, but it seems to very much trigger you into making a comment because it somehow hurts whatever MMO you are or not playing. 

    But let me tell you, no one cares.

    odd ... there is the Pot calling the Kettle black .. you care more than anyone on this site ir possibly the entire interent , how these games are catergorized..


      btw ...

      GGG catergorizes there own game as .....

               "    Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast."


     Seems to me the developers in each of these instances is labeling there game correctly , its just some ignorant others who dont know what they are playing

    Who cares? I'm calling PoE an MMO (like MMORPG.com AND Massively say it is), got a problem with that?

    If that bothers you enough, keep ranting away in every thread and post that you don't agree with what the game is. But really no one cares if someone calls a game an MMO or not, except you because you seem to keep posting away at it. 

    So onto the topic. Does anyone have a good Witch Summoning build? The talent tree in PoE is huge so its kinda overwhelming if I'm doing a good build or not lol

    Any actual MMOs though that are like PoE? Or is PoE pretty much the best there is? Is PoE pretty much the pinnacle of the top down loot based in its genre? I guess Ultima Online could sorta count, but its really different.
    D3 is regularly played with four players at end game if that's your thing.  POE has group sizes of 6 I believe, but is rarely played with that many outside of daily rotations.  I think Diablo 2 had groups of 5 maybe?

    I break ARPGs down into two categories:

    1) those with dedicated servers - D2, D3, POE, Marvel Heroes, Devilian
    2) those without dedicated servers - Torchlight 1&2, Titan Quest, Grim Dawn, Van Helsing, Victor Vran

    I believe most of the games listed in category 2 offer co-op play(I know TL1 doesn't and haven't tried Victor Vran yet).

    I personally don't consider any of them to be true MMO's, but marvel heroes is the closest as it forces you into public zones with other players while doing the story. (DEvilian may as well, I didn't play too long) POE only does this for HUBs.

    Thanks :) Torchlight 2 actually has 2 person co-op, I play it sometimes with my friend. Its a pretty awesome game, a lot of fun. 

    Seems Marvel heroes gets recommended a lot. So I think gonna give it a download and try it out. How is character building in marvel heroes? is it like PoE at all or is it more talent trees like WoW?

    lmao .. you have never seen me rant ... you on the other hand .... well ...........


                        the passive tree is not overwhelming at all its actually very simple ...

        but an easy and quick google search showed ..

    https://www.poebuilds.net/srs1


      There are many many helpful tools for the ARPG POE ....

      And btw , GGG own data show that the vast majority play POE SOLO , well over 80% ..

    oh and Marvel Heroes use to have trees.  They switched to D3 like skill and paragon systems.  It's available on PC, XBONE and PS4.  the console versions are months ahead in terms of new systems/items though.

    Just because you don't like a thread, doesn't make it a troll thread. This is about games similar to PoE that are MMOs and worth playing or at least trying out. And so far really enjoying Devilian

    Great idea. I'm going to put him on ignore and not bother to read any of his threads anymore. It's just blatant trolling and massive stupidity at this point.

    Also Path of Exile is not a MMO.
