    [–] Alch + Scour Method OP RichJMoney 0 points ago * (lasted edited 3 hours ago) in pathofexile

    You cannot use an orb of binding on maps, strongboxes or ?jewelry.

    [–] Alch + Scour Method OP RichJMoney 1 points ago in pathofexile

    On HHC I was buying Binding at 7:1c last week and Alchs were 4:1, thought it was about the same on HSC though I've been playing a bit light this week so I may just be out of date.

    [–] Alch + Scour Method OP RichJMoney 2 points ago in pathofexile

    You should be using orbs of binding as they are cheaper than alchs and functionally the same for this application.

    [–] Does caustic arrow cloud DOT count as ailment damage or is it special case? RichJMoney 2 points ago in pathofexile

    The question has a misunderstanding at it's core as implied by /u/BeaversAndExiles. It's not an ailment, specifically because it's not ignite/shock/chill/freeze/bleed/poison and not a special case. It would be a strange special exception if it did count as an ailment because the definition of an ailment is very specific.

    The Burn from Righteous fire or Scorching ray, isn't an Ailment because it's not specifically an ignite. The Chaos damage over time of Blight, Essence of Delirium, Death's Oath or Caustic Arrow is not an ailment because it's not specifically poison.

    [–] The worst part about being a Ulab runner RichJMoney 1 points ago in pathofexile

    This is why I have an auto response macro to Whois me and let me know if you want to wait, as well as why I log in and run a whisper notifier while I work. Though it was nice while releveling a new character (Died to this B$ ) that I sold a few hundred chaos worth of items and gems in a few hours.

    It's not a "Troll item". It's a designed unique that fulfills a niche in it's own right that happened to have a troll component baked into the design process. The mentality that assumes I am offended by a balance change that doesn't actually affect my item baffles me. My item got buffed with the 1 handed changes, elemental damage changes and currently works fairly well as an intro 1hander for a crit sunder build or some other full conversion setup.

    For the record ZoRoXo is a long time acquaintance since literally the first month or two I was playing the game in Nemesis, and he's always had a spot on my constantly full in game friends list. His informal reply isn't just a random spam comment, and I'm a bit baffled by the downvotes even past the point that it was hidden.

    I always have 10+ build ideas that I don't get to during a league. I tend to play a lot of builds that are just off enough from the meta that I see builds similar to mine picked up fairly frequently when the meta shifts due to nerfs, so I'm always thinking about the "puzzle" of a build which keeps me engaged.

    The majority of my alt tabbed time is actually not on the steam client. I use the standalone on the PC that I use a whisper notifier on. I have dual Gaming/Streaming PC setup and I usually remote onto the Streaming PC as a single monitor is easier to manage and it is also where I manage my uploads/downloads/projects etc.

    Yes, I got a mirror drop in a Malformation during Perandus league in softcore. I was simply working on challenges and regrettably it was both not on stream and not in the hardcore league where I care more about things like that. I also had a skyforth drop, a relic Shavronne's Wrappings, several chanced Voll's Devotions (before div cards), and pretty much every sought after drop apart from a Headhunter. I chanced a total of around 3000-4000 belts when the nemesis mod cost 1 exalted orb and still have the 20+ Wurm's Molt and Immortal Flesh to show for it without a Headhunter.

    Having a job you truly enjoy doesn't feel like a job. POE sometimes burns me out or gives me stress, but I usually look forward to logging in rather than feeling obligated to log in. My attitude to my actual job suffered for a while due to some factors outside of my direct control, but at this point I look forward to going into the office for 8-9 hours then I look forward to 6-8 hours of gameplay at home.

    I definitely don't spend extra time on things like editing and thumbnails and focused content creation that the people who support themselves on streaming do, but I have a sub button now and do try and keep my stream looking and feeling like something I would want to watch, but even if I could support myself with twitch/youtube it wouldn't pay off my student loans or fill up my 401k (I put 10%+ of my income into retirement before I even see it). I'm playing the long term strategy so I can retire to play video games someday (my dad still thinks I'll "grow out of it").

    I never actively play, but I often will have the game open with a whisper notifier and I tab in for trades. A large portion of my days are filled with online meetings that I'm just gathering information from or project work that's under my own time management. I wouldn't ever consciously compromise my career for the sake of a game, and I do far more than the bare minimum expected of me at the office.

    I've made real life friends with the game, and I try to treat streaming as a 2nd job. 168 hours in a week, 48 for Work/Commuting. I eat two meals a day at work, and exercise there as well so it doesn't cut into the stream time. I walk 3-4 miles a day listening to audio books to keep myself fairly well read. I average 5 hours of sleep a night, so that's another 35. Leaving 55 hours a week that I'm often splitting between POE, D&D.

    I get 3-4 weeks of paid time off in a year, probably about 1/3 of which I use for POE launches, and the 10k hours includes time while I was in college and could play for 120+ hours during a week race on occasion. I won a Demi in the Domination SC 1 week race to put that in perspective.

    I do lack some socializing outside of gaming, but it's hard to meet people with similar world views and interests outside of gaming/cons, so I don't feel I'm missing out much. Several of the people I've met through POE/Streaming/Gaming conventions are now real life friends and we get together fairly often.

    I struggle to find balance and by no means take offense to the idea that I am way too hardcore, because I do often work on being more efficient in my life for the sake of making time for POE/Streaming but that's a choice I've made much like my choices to be a more healthy person both physically and mentally.

    Yup the above poster is correct. I usually use pushbullet but a free account is limited in messages per month though you can always make a new one but it's a bit of a hassle to swap everything over.

    There's also SMTP messaging which I have set up to send me an email when I get a whisper. I then forward that email to my phone via text, but that has a 1 or 2 minute delay.

    Mostly I actually have my remote desktop to my streaming PC open in the background at work (convenient for starting downloads/uploads/rendering while I'm not at home) and just use the noise notification.

    I mean I'm in the office, not playing POE for 40+ hours a week. Sometimes I have my account logged in for trading and have whispers pushed to my phone so I can remote to my home and trade, but I'm never playing during my work hours. POE/Streaming is really my only hobby (aside from D&D now), and I don't have kids to take care of.

    I'm a salaried employee with occasional weekend pager shifts, but I'm trying to pay off my student loans as fast as possible so I'm living (relatively) cheaply which means cutting out most travelling, no real big purchases, stopped going out to bars, riding the bus/uber rather than owning a car, etc all of which means more time for POE or other games.
