My First Impressions On Path Of Exile

, 16 March 2018 -- Path of Exile, also known as POE, is an online action role-playing game developed by Grinding Gear Games in 2013.

Recently, I tried Path of Exile for the first time, I find that it is a free to play dark - fantasy Action RPG where we stepped into the unfortunate role of a prisoner exiled from the main continent onto the continent of Wraeclast. Thrown from a prisoner ship we wash up on a beach and instantly have to fight to save ourselves in this horrific setting filled with enemies, survivors, creatures and other exiles.

On the prisoner ship we were able to choose our class from a handful of prisoners, some pre-generated characters with their own backstories; Out of all the back stories of our prospective character's crimes and their justification for why they did it, we went with "The Witch" who up front talked about controlling the dead, sounded cool.

Cue our unfortunate landing on the beach and trying to have a chat with the only other survivor from our ship he was suddenly cut short by some "Drowned" monsters; those dead from the ship that had come back to life as zombies.

A couple of zaps from our natural magic and the undead were on their butts and dropped some loot for us to grab. Loot takes up certain shapes in your inventory, broken up into squares, larger poe items can be a 3x2 chest armor, or a 1x3 wand or sword; the larger and bulkier the item the more room it takes up.

Further into the game the amount of gear that drops on the floor made it quickly apparent that we weren't looting everything (not without constantly going back and forth to the quest/town area to sell stuff) and so our looting became a lot more choice and targeting only stuff we needed or "blue" coloured gear that would sell for more currency.

The poe currency feature is quite novel; there's no coins or gold on Wraeclast and instead characters trade in items such as Scrolls of Wisdom (one of the lowest tradable commodities), or pieces of them that when you gather enough will create a single scroll.

It's a neat little system and the trading expands to players as well who will trade what they want for what they have, typically exchanging items, weapons, armor and gems.

Gems are a big part of the game and every piece of armor or weapon comes with various gem sockets coloured green (Dex), blue (Int) and red (Str) where you can place a coloured gem in the same corresponding socket, each colour represents the different classifications and types of ability you will unlock such as Blue/Int based gems focusing on magic abilities whereas Red/Str based gems more about physical attacks.

As with all expansions, this one will be completely free. If you've never tried Path of Exile before, now is a great time to jump in.
