Ill do both..... more than likely make a support charcter since u don't require high paragons or augments for high GR pusbhing.

Then either a LoN Necro for rats or a LoN star pact...... dont listen to people who say u can't play SP on console. I know of at least 2 people that brought into 140+ 4 man GRs and said its doable with some practice.
Aint nothing like pimpin just let it roll, muthafu**in s**t god dam a**hol*.

Path of Exile uses microtransactions and I usually don't play such games on principle, even though the game is free to play. I would much rather pay for a game and get perks by achievements rather than paying for them. But even $60 games being sold are filled with microtransactions and expensive DLC.

Plenty of games do microtransactions right. Overwatch, for example, doesn't let you pay for anything that affects gameplay, while others feel explicitly designed to nickel-and-dime the player at every turn, such as Evolve that launched in early 2015 as a $60, multiplayer-only game, but that didn't stop publisher 2K from bombarding players with pricey DLC options from day one. Diablo III also had microtransactions that were so bad, Blizzard had to take them out of the game. When the game first came out, it leaned heavily on an Auction House feature. This controversial addition to the series let players trade powerful items among themselves for either in-game currency or real money. This might not have been a problem, except that the game was extremely stingy with powerful loot, almost forcing players to spend more time in the auction house than they did adventuring. Thankfully, Blizzard closed the Auction House and rebalanced the game, making it closer to the classic Diablo formula players know and love. And the complaints I have heard about EA's Star Wars: Battlefront games' use of expensive and egregious microtransactions are horrifying.

And the frustrations with another gear-grinding game? Perhaps it may be best to give this a pass.

PoE is more or less as you say Overwatch is: the most expensive things you can buy are cosmetics. The only things you can buy that can affect gameplay are stash tabs, but those are required only if you want more room, better organized tabs or you want to sell items to other players. Nothing of which is required to play endgame (from what I read, since I’m still not there).

Edit: on top of that, I read a lot of players complaining about the ugliness of normal item aesthetics, but I have to say that my level 30ish shadow looks pretty cool...

What Arneb said is pretty much the gist. You only pay for convenience stuff like stash tabs, and cosmetic stuff.

Neither of which are required. The cosmetic stuff can be ridiculously priced though, so buying them is entirely up to you as an individual.

If i enjoy free to play games i dont have an issue buying stuff from their stores to promote and support the game. But i dont want to have to. Like DC universe. The game is fun but you are severley gimped even if you purchase things seperately if you dont have a membership.

People have been complaining about the lack of stash space in D3 for a long while now and you guys want to argue that paying for stash tabs in PoE is just "convenience stuff".

The game is free, though. 20$ for stash space upgrade is a reasonable purchase to round it all out.

I’d rather pay 60$ for the game and not have to pay for stash upgrades that will likely go beyond that price.
