psh, it was not the weapons that were doing the most dps. it was you spamming spectral weapon, you prolly are like 20 levels higher than him.

the guy from the video is so annoying, he should take his medicine!

If you can op your character good for you.
I for myself have a 72% evasion chance + 40% total dodge chance and can land almost 4 hits in 1 second.
And here is the suprise. Those stats apply on my lvl 43/100 shadow. Imagine him on 100....
Am I op? Yes.
Is this intended by the devs? Yes.
It´s the reward for taking a perfect care of character development and passive allocation.

Looks fun, but I'd prefer Marauder. Less effort to just run up and start smashing it then to collect up weapons, drop them, use skill on them, then attack. I'd not consider it OP, just powerful.

i played a dodge based char in open beta and he is retired now. i made it till level 64, maybe they tweaked dodge and evasion mechanic by now so that it is viable. i didnt tried it again, my new char is full armor with sword and shield :D

It is definatly fun. Brutus could just not manage to hit me :D 30 Blood Monkeys around me?! No problem I get barely ever hit...
The elemental defense is another thing.... 3 magic attacks and I´m down. But I will work on this next.

They buff evasion but is still overall useless in the end game.

A lot of new players will be in a big surprise when they reach Merciless. While the death penalties have be reduced it will impede their level progress substantially.

PoE gives new players a false sense of security in normal difficulties. Cruel they starts to get a feeling of how hard PoE can be. Once they reach Merciless they wonder where they went wrong in their build. OP at normal, useless in Merciless.

They might see videos like these. New players does not realize how focus it is.

The video below is my Tank Build fighting pre nerf VAAL. My teammates were 5-10 level above him. I was 6 levels below VAAL. I did not get killed because the way I made my character. Overdosed in defense. In all modesty the nerf to charges was probably my doing.
