Hey! My experience in the game so far has been a variety of builds in 0.8.2 and leveling a Forge Guard from scratch in 0.8.3. Loved the patch so far, but I’m getting eaten alive in the Lower District. I even maxed my poison resist because I knew that’d be an issue, but just the physical damage is even proving a bit much. My gear isn’t terrific, it’s just shoddy leveling gear with poison slapped on, but it still hadn’t been an issue up to this point, even earlier parts of the chapter (which were still darn hard!). I’d go into more details about the build, but it’s really more about the discrepancy between earlier areas and this one feels a bit strong.
Personally, I like when the main campaign is a notch easier than Chapter 9 in general, but I’m still making forward progress without much issue so it’s not a deal breaker. Just this particular map is really digging at me, especially the Rogues who are impossible to run from and attack super fast.
