The Arctic Lynx, Wolf and Armour Are Now For Sale!

In December last year we introduced new arctic-themed microtransactions via our Winter Mystery Box. After the promised month of exclusivity, we're happy to announce that the Arctic Lynx Pet, Wolf Pet, and Arctic Armour Set (including its individual pieces) are now available in the store!

The individual pieces of the armour set have been temporarily discounted so that players who weren't able to complete their sets via the Winter Mystery Box will be able to complete their sets without being at a disadvantage.

Thank you for your generous support.

About This Game

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, Path of Exile is completely free and will never be pay-to-win.

Key Features

  • Freedom. Power. Revenge.
    Banished for your misdeeds to the dark, brutal world of Wraeclast, you play as the Duelist, Witch, Ranger, Templar, Marauder, Shadow or the Scion class. From forsaken shores through to the ruined city of Sarn, explore Wraeclast and uncover the ancient secrets waiting for you.
  • Unlimited Character Customization
    Create and customize hundreds of unique skill combinations from tradable itemized gems and our gigantic passive skill tree. Combine skill gems, support gems and trigger gems to create your own unique combination of power, defense and destruction.
  • Deadly Missions
    The Forsaken Masters each have their own style of mission and each of these missions has many variations. As you explore deeper into Wraeclast, the pool of available variations increases to challenge you in new ways. All of the Missions and their variations can occur anywhere in the game, including within end-game Maps.
  • Dressed to Kill
    Path of Exile is all about items. Find, collect and trade magic, rare and unique items with arcane properties, then customize your character build around the deadliest combinations you possess.
  • Brutal Competitive Play
    Battle in PvP tournaments seasons and Capture the Flag events for worldwide recognition. Compete in Daily Leagues and Race Events that run as separate game worlds with their own ladders and economies to win valuable prizes.
  • Customise Your Hideout
    ​In their extensive travels throughout Wraeclast, the Forsaken Masters have discovered ideal locations for an Exile to use as their own secret Hideout. Once you've earned a Master's trust, you may be taken to a Hideout, where you can create your own personalised town. Masters residing in your Hideout offer you daily Missions and train you in advanced crafting options. Use your Hideout as a quiet place to craft after battle, or expand it and use it as a personalised Guild Hall with hundreds of decorations.

After 3500 hours played through Steam I can only say
it's probably only game that will ever keep me this busy.

And still.. I have barley touched this game,

I'm playing low budget builds,
selling one build before I can start new one.

I've never had "legacy" or other sick items,
and after all I can make my way to level100 easy.

I've never tried Hardcore, I'd love to but my toaster
would just RIP me even when loading instance.

What have I done? For past 3500+ hours I've been smashing
monsters like H*ll. I've been praying to get one lucky drop,
I've been farming Alts, Chaos, Regals to get even one 6L that's not Tabula,

The fact I've never achieved anything cool and still
I could call this game my life more than my "real life"
makes me wonder why I still keep playing it.

Why I'm still playing it? I have no other reason but it's F*ckin awesome.
