Could some experienced ES player write up a short description and pros/cons about this mod so I could add it to first post? Please :D

If someone has more time, I can share my ES save, Amazon char.

Just entered the Nightmare.

I can't write pros nor cons since Normal difficulty is a little bit way too easy, there was no need for a single cube recipe, you can say it was for an introduction purposes.

But will for sure write them once I at least finish the Nightmare, few pros/cons from my pov.

Anyway:

I was unable to do 2 quests, wasn't able to find them, will try harder next time.

First of all there are two versions of Eastern Sun. Old one with active realm and new one curently under development? by Alpha. Mod itself dedicated to Japan culture (monsters, runes, items - named in japanese words).
Pros:
has active realm
clod skills + 3-4 different skills for each char (mainly borrowed skills from other chars, but some unique)
new items, runes, runewords, uniques, sets and so on
unique material containers, gold pick up and other usefull stuff
various cube recipes to create, improve items
one uber? with multiple levels going down and nithlakh as final boss
two areas filled with act 1 and act 2 bosses for easy xp/item farming
Cons:
rather easy progression, probably hc friendly?
lack of end game ubers/content

p.s.: i played new version some time ago, so i might forgot to mention stuff - feel free to add.

That is it I would say.

One uber, rather big one, really big.

But still no sign of Nithalak on my side.

There is few dungeons and areas for which I would say that they are like some mini ubers, sth like that.

Cons - at least on normal drop rate of everything should really be 50% less, lack of difficulty - but luckily those ubers are there to make the mod more enjoying.

But yeah, Alpha said few things about future changes to the mod:

ESR 6.0 will contain several major changes. First all chars will get a brand new skillset.....

Another major change will be a complete monster overhaul. Making them more engaging and dangerous than they are now.


Anyway, I like it, and I'm looking forward to see how mod will develop.

Hui mod is hui, what you expected ?

Le Royaume des ombres - this mod is still in beta. Last version released in 2016 summer? and has not been updated since. Mod is heavily influenced by Titan Quest game. You can say it's Titan Quest + Diablo = this mod.
Pros:
7 classes with unique skills, passives, synergies, ect.
all maps are changed, quests are similar but also changed
very big and very populated maps
new items, artifacts, materials, crafting system, unique shrines and chests
easy leveling - hc friendly

Cons:
in beta all sets and uniques are disable
most of the skills are quite powerfull and can be used from start to finish - easy and boring leveling

Wait a bit for better quality, youtube still processing:
