I've always been a melee person in any game I play. So when I saw that this patch was catering towards buffing melee, I'm most definitely on board for that. My question is being that I'm still relatively new to playing Leagues, you guys have any suggestions on what kind of build to play for starters? I'm thinking something with a Marauder. The epitome of face smacking. Not sure what skills to use. Or should I just look at something off PoeBuilds?

another site you can use is called poebuilds.cc which organizes builds based on popularity and when you click them it shows a forum post. Marauder is a pretty good melee choice but duelist is amazing also look into them because they are pretty good for the majority of melee things. They have good ascendancys for it like slayer has leech based things gladiator has block or bleed related stuff and champion has taunt / fortify / banners so its good for groups since its kind of a tank. If your set on maruader though engineering eternity has a few good marauder builds. Another good build that seems to work well is tectonic slam marauder also. heres a link for you to check out Marauder Builds - Legion League - Path of Exile

madslane Ty for the link. So question for you guys. How long would you say it would take to complete the entire story? I don't know if its just cause I'm casually playing or what, but I feel as if its taking me a while to get through the story. I guess that partially depends on the builds and clear speed huh?

The main story? Just 10 acts? As a complete new person maybe 20 hours. Story isn't overly difficult. Just keep your resistances maxed, really. If your following a build, it should have the info needed for leveling. If not there's plenty of generic guides for leveling. If your following your own build, then expect failure but also expect a ton of knowledge.

From what I was reading, skilled folks who've played the game for a long time can clear through the story in just a few hours and if that's true, my first thought was "how is that possible?" lol

I think sub 3hr is fastest SSFHC run to date. Some have been done under 2 hours but fully twinked out. These are generally the guys who use build purely to min/max speed runs. Honestly, think the average joe using a somewhat decent build can do it in 10 or less. Also depends on HC or not.

I wish had the time to get through that and do the actual endgame. I don't even really know too much about it, because it takes me forever to get to it. Its map progression and then other things right?
