PoE is an excellent ARPG experience, and a free one at that. Having played my fair share of ARPGs prior to this, I can say with confidence that PoE has a genuinely unique style all its own. Combat is customizable and varied close to the point where your imagination will be the only limiting factor. Pair this with a decent story, innovative mechanics and a lasting end-game experience, and it’s easy to see why PoE stands as one of the highest rated games in the genre.
With just over one day left until it’s announcement, predict the league name for 3.3.0 and it’s new game mechanic. I’m pretty sure you could make a fairly simple taxonomy of all the different league mechanics GGG has used so far.
So to make a PoE league pick about two focuses and then decide if you want to concentrate everything in a big breach-style bonanza or spread it out a bit more like ambush or harbinger.
Very spread out crafting and boss Oblivion League
Slain monsters have a chance to respawn as more powerful nega-monsters. These drop shards of annulment, scouring, and other new currencies that remove mods as well as fragments to the oblivion zone where you can fight nega-bosses.
Medium spread mobs and boss Necrosis League
Packs of necrotic monsters spawn, and killing the entire pack spreads the rot to nearby monsters. Killing packs or unique monsters with multiple stacks of rot has a chance to spawn a festering lord.
Concentrated crafting and boss Ritual League
Summoning circles scattered throughout Wraeclast spawn powerful bosses. Once a boss is deafated, the circle can be reactivated to spawn an even more powerful foe. Bosses drop different types of currency that can be used to transform a completed circle into a one-time use crafting bench with unique new effects. Do you want to poe buy items?
