I've just finally gotter around to playing PoE and must say its excellent, actualy can't believe its free. Whats even better is that so far as I can tell all the pay elements are cosmetic.
If anyone is playing feel free to add me to your steam with DigitalEternal, my name in game is Desidaryus.
Also if you havent joined the NGO steam group yet then you should.
