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

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.

The game is really good, you could compare it to Diablo, although POE is the better game. If I were you, a bored person searching entertainment, or just procrastinating as usual and liked Diablo-esque ARPGs I would just give it a go. I mean, it's free.

Plus I have two small, little tips for you, because I, myself am still rather new at the game and can't just write a whole guide.

First: Be generous while using the potions, you don't have to save them for a tight spot, because they refill by killing enemies.

Second: If you're having trouble with the first boss, then look around the first stage for a bow, It makes it easier to kill him.

This is the best FTP MMO I have come across. Virtually endless character customization. Just can't believe it took me so long to find it. So glad it popped up in my queue. Hope you guys keep it coming, thanx!

As I approach 1,000 hours...

This game deserves a review.

I have spent easily $200+ on microtransaction aesthetic content for this game.

BECAUSE IT"S THAT ♥♥♥♥♥ING AMAZING.

I probably played about 500 hours before I even got to true end-game content.

I still havent come close to building every unique character type I would want to yet.

I don't think that would be possible given ANY amount of time.

If you're reading this and haven't tried this game yet, you're DOING IT WRONG.

Play this game. Now.

One of the best free-to-play titles. Microtransactions are entirely cosmetic nothing else. Do try if you like diablo or ARPGS.

After playing this game off and on for almost the past 4 years (since Onslaught league first started) every new update that has come out has never seized to fail me! Everything GGG adds to the game only greatly improves the quality and gameplay of this masterpiece to the point where this game rarely gets boring at all. I've just hit my 1000hr mark on steam and i must say this is definitely one of the best smart and content rich games you will ever play and i don't think i'll be leaving this game anytime soon. Best of all is that with all this great content EVERYTHING is F2P for you to enjoy without spending a single cent.

I must say, this game is honestly by far the best free game i've ever played. At the time of posting this i have about 870.8hrs played.. I really honestly should get a life... But really this game is damn good. It is like mergeing Diablo 2 with Final Fantasy 7 (face it the skill gems ARE Materia) while tossing in Final Fantasy 10's Sphere Grid passive leveling system. It also is by NO MEANS pay to win.. Which is great, its actually pay to look awesome.. While I must say I feel the micro transaction stuff is a lil pricey i do understand why it must be.. That would be the only "con" i can think of. But yeah I really REALLY REALLY recomend this game. It may seem complicated at first, but once you get used to it, it's really not bad. As for the player base, there is a large amount of ppl always playing, and for the most part they are rather nice. Also no gold, the crafting mats. are the currency, that can be a pain but.. meh it could be much worse!!
