ZiggyD's Community Unique Design

Many months ago, Grinding Gear Games and ZiggyD worked together to create a new unique item that was shaped by votes from the community! The first vote decided that the item should be a belt, and the second vote chose the design intent of rewarding an Armour/Evasion hybrid playstyle. It's finally time for the third vote, to decide one of the special properties! Click here for more information!

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.

Like a hardcore version of D3. Unfortunately, like D3, the only way to progress is to do the same story line on three separate difficulties... It can get a little boring but it's still plenty of fun.
The hideouts are really awesome, the customization and location choices are rad as well. I think I spend too much time in mine though... Barely get anything done.

Graphically pleasing
No "MUST BE THIS BUILD META" - TOO MANY builds to pick from all viable.
JUST GO PLAY IT

BE WARNED - STEEEEEP learning curve. Read some 101 and new player guides.

This is the best Free To Play game on the market right now, I recommend this product ! The gameplay is a lot like Diablo! But better than Diablo 3. There are microtransaction but you can only buy esthetic accessories.

This game is great, BUT - i dont know what's going on with it.
It keep on crushing and giving me the "failed to connect to instance" messages and the game goes out to the main menu making me lose all the collectible items and resets the level - this happens 99% when i try to portal to town or even crossing between maps, frustrating!

Never had these bugs before, i dont use any firewall and have a good internet connection.
This just makes me leave this game, i bought things on it and it's disappointing.

Until the makers will fix this problem i don't think i can recommend it.

Hi, young female here with 0 gaming experience before this game. My husband is a huge PC gamer and really wanted me to take interest in it. This is the first game I ever looked into and I.LOVE.IT! I downloaded it when it first became available a few years ago and played it all the time. I took a bit of a hiatus after starting D3, but always came back to this game. I still play it to this day and it just gets better and better. I've gotten my husband interested in it, as well. I'm sorry my review isn't very informative, but I'm not an expert in these things. I just know that this game is super fun, has a great storyline, and is for everyone. I definitely recommend!

Have you ever thought "Man I love diablo, but 3 kinda sucked compared to 2" well then this game is for you! It feels so much like diablo it's insane, but has SO much more to offer!
Ontop of it being a great mmorpg with tons of people playing, it has character building none of us could have dreamed of. I mean the passive skill tree alone is MASSIVE, easily the biggest i've ever or will ever see. The amount of different character builds and skills you have to mess around with alone will leave you with hours and hours of entertainment. You'll be remaking and creating new characters for months the combinations are endless, on top of the constant updates and expansions this game will consume your very life.

What are you waiting for, there's a world in here... and they need your help.

This game reminds me so much of all the goodness in Diablo 2. So what has this extra to offer?
Well, first it's not set in the graphics of the Blizzard universe which makes it quite refreshing, both literally and figuratively speaking. There is no gold and the concept of 'weapon value' has been dropped. So what's important? the gems. They give power and magic and they grow as you advance. They can be resocketed and thereby not lost after first use. The skill tree is very impressive which allows your character to evolve to become very unique. Much of the magic is known but there are plenty new tricks and moves (and totems and prophecies). For a free game very impressive. Monster bashing and fireworks to the max.

I'v enever reviewed a game but I was so impressed with it I had to. Below are the top 5 reasons I think you should download Path of Exile.

1) It's Free!
2) Stunningly Beautiful
3) In-Depth Character progression, the skill tree is insane
4) Intuitive Gameplay, there's not really a tutorial but after 5-10 minutes in the game its easy to figure out
5) Straight Forward, despite it being free the in-game store is labeled "Microtransaction Store" so you know exactly what it is. I love this. What's offered there are visual items and pets, things that dont impact the game play. You don't need to buy anything to enjoy or advance in the game. Purchases seem to benefit the continued development and operation of the game.
