Grinding Gear Video games summarized the numerous steadiness modifications that may be coming to Path of Exile in final week’s presentation of its upcoming league/growth, Expedition, which we covered here. This week, an extended — make that a lot longer — clarification was posted on the PoE site, explaining the philosophy behind the modifications and what they had been meant to perform.
General, the modifications are being enacted because of the persistent energy creep that’s occurred over the sport’s life span. That’s made many boss fights trivial, typically taking simply “a fraction of a second, with none fascinating interplay.” Low-level monster life ranges shall be elevated, and there are modifications coming to a number of key elements of participant builds.
The majority of the manifesto covers the identical topics that had been mentioned final week: help gem discount, the flask system rework, and participant ailment mitigation. Usually: help gems that merely present a buff to break shall be decreased, flasks will recharge extra slowly, and there are new methods for participant to mitigate illnesses that don’t rely so closely on flasks. Three motion abilities — Flame Sprint, Sprint, and Smoke Mine — are additionally much less efficient, requiring larger specialization to make the most of to their fullest extent.
There’s much more within the manifesto — modifications to Arcane Surge, Fortify, damage-over-time multipliers, veiled mods, a number of that get only a bullet level’s price of dialogue, and even some precise buffs(!) — so if you happen to’re a hardcore PoE participant, you’ll undoubtedly wish to check it out. Expedition launches in three days, so that you would possibly even get finished studying it by then.
