It’s pretty tough talk when a game’s new Lead comes out and says “Mistakes were made” and lists a ton of changes they want to focus on, but will it mean anything for the future of Cryptic Studios’ Neverwinter? We’ll talk about that, Path of Exile’s patch 2.0 beta, and TERA’s upcoming Gunner class. All that and more on this week’s Free to Play Cast!

    Question of the week:
    I don’t think I’ll check out the Gunner class, but I will at least log back into TERA for a bit. I don’t think I could level from 1-65 on another class in that game, the grind remains strong.

    Yes ! I will try the Gunner Simply because it looks fun to play!

    Question of the Week, yup…still instaled and updated so i’ll have a look and the gunner just to see what it’s about.

    As for PoE, The new mode of sync is not in beta yet…looking at a few more weeks.
    When was the last time you played it, casue there is loads on stuff added since the video you have on the site(it is 3 years old)
    The look of most areas has changed a bit…most notiably the fetid pool on the vid.
    There are now, masters(give quests, hideouts and crafting benches)
    There are corrupted areas which act like an introduction to maps which can drop some corrupted skill gems(changes how they work) and fragments which can be used to open up a boss and subsequent uber boss
    There are new loot chests that can be rolled with currency which can drop gear, skill gems, currency and maps at the risk of getting killed by the monsters they spawn
    The rare monsters can now have nemesis mods which throw in new ways of killing you.

    As for the beta, only just started playing last night, so far the loot filter is great and quite easy to set up.
    The areas in act 1-3 have been condenced down and some areas removed outright…it streamlines the leveling process…there are some new monsters.
    Most of the skill gem quest rewards have been moved and added to..there are some atm that are place holder.
    They have added some new support gems one increasing damage on caused to chilled enimies and one that buffs your defences on melee hit…which actiualy crosses over onto your minions melee hits.
    i’ve hardly scratched the surface tbh.

    Correction to your comments on the supporters packs.
    They start at $30…you don’t get a key with the points pack
