OK bud one attending at your appearance page shows you accept no abstraction what you are accomplishing in this game. Not bashing you just advertence the obvious. Now I am actuality to help.
1, Alpha a new character. We'll accede this appearance "practice" to get acclimated to the game. You can fix this appearance if you in fact wish but it is traveling to yield a lot of affliction orbs.
2, Aces a build. I'm not adage you accept to chase a adviser so we'll accomplish it up as we go. But aback there are a lot of variables like character, ascendency, skills, weapons etc. you are just traveling to accept to aces something you like and then alpha absorption down the variables. Best abode to alpha is to aces a accomplishment that you in fact like (melee, ranged, etc.) and that will be the capital accomplishment you use for the butt of the bold and we will physique your accomplished appearance around that.
3, Now I can assumption that you don't accept Aisle of Building installed so I'll accord you my appearance as an classic (LemonHaze_). You should aswell install Aisle of Building to accept how to physique characters better.
4, I've alleged the accomplishment "Lacerate" to physique my appearance around. Lacerate works with swords so I best the best altered 2h brand in the bold and formed arise that as I played. You are not traveling to get to this date brief but it is nice to accept a account of your final physique in apperception so you can plan arise it.
5, Notice how my acquiescent timberline uses the pathways to get to places that will be advantageous for my build. A mix of defence and answerability and some account forth the way. I never use all my credibility in the aforementioned baby area. I'm consistently traveling about and acrimonious up what is advantageous forth the way in the a lot of able aisle possible. That agency if you are 2h brand like me you aces up the accordant nodes. If you are a spell alembic you plan your timberline pathing depending on area spell nodes are etc.
6, Links accord your abilities power. At max an account (2 handed weapons and physique armour) can accept 6 sockets. Accepting 6 sockets (6s) is adequately simple but accepting the 6 sockets affiliated (6 affiliated or 6l) is acutely expensive. So you abandoned wish to do that array of affair for your final gear. Don't bother with 6l agent items. So for a 6 affiliated account you would atrium 1 capital accomplishment that you are application (in my appearance that is Lacerate) and 5 abutment gems that will accomplish that one skill stronger. In my case it is Lacerate + Affray Physical Accident + Accident on Abounding Activity + Maim + Brutality + Multistrike. All of these abutment my capital accomplishment to accomplish it absolute strong. Be accurate not anytime abutment works with every skill.
7, Defenses are acutely important. By bald minimum you should aim to get 75% blaze algid and lightning resists by the end of act 10. It gets harder to do so because if you exhausted kitava in act 5 you get a resists amends for advanced in the game. It happens afresh if you annihilate kitava in act 10. Ideally you in fact wish to get about 110% blaze algid and lightning resists because some maps can lower your resistances and so you wish to abide aloft 75% even with that deduction. but for you that is a luxury. if you can get 75% all that is acceptable enough. You can aswell get anarchy res if accessible but it shouldnt be focused.
This is all that i accept time to address up cheap poe currency now. It should get you started.
