I am just looking for some opinions since 1.0 is about 3ish months away.
I enjoy ARPGs a lot. I play a good amount of Grim Dawn, and am looking for an ARPG to throw into the mix. I never could get into POE due to coming so late to the game. The Skill Tree and the seasons and everything just makes me feel overwhelmed. I am sure it is all super easy, but I am used to Torchlight and Diablo III. I also do not enjoy the gem slotting system of POE. Totally a me thing.
Does it make sense to jump into Last Epoch now, or should I just hold off and I wait? I really enjoyed running Seasons in Diablo III and the end game loop felt right for me.
I am going through the forums and trying to understand where this game sits. Somethings give me pause, such as the game not having all "Chapters" with 1.0. Does this also mean there really is no end game loop? As someone who has little frame of reference I am trying to figure out what is there already?
My biggest fear is I pick up this game before 1.0 comes out, and I just rush through and kind of tire myself out before 1.0 comes out. I did this with the original Darkest Dungeon. By the time 1.0 came out, I was just kind of over the game despite there being a lot of changes and things to come.
Basically, is there enough here for a satisfying loop? Would I be kneecapping myself if I jump in now?
Sorry for the two part question. If it helps, I enjoy Grim Dawn's "Endgame" so you can have a slight idea.
EDIT: I have looked at some of the other questions posted, and no one really has addressed what I am asking.
WHAT IS THE END GAME LOOP? DOES IT MATTER THAT THE GAME IS SAYING THAT THEY WON'T BE "CHAPTER COMPLETE" EVEN WITH 1.0? IS THERE A LEGIT FEAR IF I DUMP 200 HOURS INTO THIS BEFORE FEB THAT I WILL BURN OUT, JUST LIKE I DID WITH DARKEST DUNGEON EARLY ACCESS?External link →
