    I couldn't believe when I saw it for the first time. They did it. Those crazy bastards did it! Tower defense in a ARPG. Man, I'm really excited for this one.

    How about showing Totem Builds some deserved love? It's now or never.

    Try the game Deathtrap, based around the Tower Defense quests in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing.  It's lots of fun (IMHO)

    The Dungeon Defenders series as well as Orcs Must Die series are kinda ARPGs set permanently in Tower Defense Mode, too, although they're third-person perspective.

    It's a combination that works well and I'm happy Path of Exile is giving its take on it.

    Rather I enjoy this seasons mechanics or not, I always enjoy starting a fresh character and stash. Maybe this season I will finally take down that damn Uber Atziri

    I think the point is to allow someone to play the way the person wants, which does not interfere with the fun you are having playing the way you want - as much some people may think otherwise.

    This game is mostly single player right? This just looks like a disaster on my screen trying to play with a friend.

    It has "Self Fund" mode if you want to play it single player. But it is online and multiplayer and it works fine.

    You just need a loot filter in endgame or your screen will be a mess

    The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing did tower defense years ago. Just something else you might want to check out sometime.

    Deathtrap, from the same devs, is a full aRPG/Tower Defense game aswell.

    I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    It depends. I played with a Necro full quantity over quality and auras... Yeah was quite busy

    Tower defence in my favourite ARPG; hell yeah! Looking forward to this one, do think it's going to be a hard one to pull off successfully, fast action builds have been the meta for ages, micromanaging towers on top of that could be a frustrating pain, especially in higher tier end game maps.

    Love the ability incoming to build up master quests, been so many leagues now and end game bloat was getting to be annoying when it interrupted your flow. A fantastic QoL update.

    Minion Masters going to be the new meta? Enjoyed following the trend with the Cyclone meta this league, but thinking a Caustic Arrow build could work well poisoning lanes in Blight?

    Great looking update, bye bye life again
