Path of Exile Overview
You are an Exile, struggling to survive on the dark continent of Wraeclast, as you fight to earn power that will allow you to exact your revenge against those who wronged you. Created by hardcore gamers, Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in a dark Fantasy world. With a focus on visceral Action combat, powerful items, and deep character customization, the Path of Exile is completely free and will never be pay-to-win.
Players are treated to an absolutely massive amount of skill gems and passive skill tree options. Skill gems can be socketed into equipment and grant a wide range of abilities depending on gem type and color. Gems can even level up to provide a stronger version of the skill. The passive skill tree is a vast and complex set of passive skill combinations. Each player can choose from a huge variety of point allocations to truly customize their character's role.
Path of Exile features both PVE and PVP with events such as leveling races taking place on fresh servers. Other variations include a Cut-Throat mode, where players can invade other players’ instances and kill them to take their items. Each event can last from only an hour to several months and award valuable prizes to the victors. Fans of more traditional dungeon crawling mechanics found in Diablo 2 should give Path of Exile a try.
