Five Experiences Path Of Exile Offer To You

Path of Exile takes place in the dark fantasy world of Wraeclast where you are an exile who was aboard a ship that sank. The Story and Lore begin here. You swim to shore and begin your adventure.

Character Creation

You pick a starting class, choose your league and name your character. There are seven classes to choose from: The Marauder, The Ranger, The Witch, The Duelist, The Templar, The Shadow, and the Scion (which is unlocked inside the game through a quest). The starting class defines the sex and voice of your character as you play the game, but the next part is where PoE is very different from other games. The starting class defines your starting point in the massive skill matrix and what quest rewards are made available when you complete a quest. A player can turn any class into pretty much whatever they want.

Complete Quests

The Quests in PoE are pretty simple and straight forward, yet well-done. There aren't a lot of them (the game really is about exploring, fighting, and finding treasure), but they are designed to guide the player through the world. Act I has 9 quests, Act II has 7, and Act III has 10. The quest/travel map provided within the game makes it easy for players to see where they need to go and how they need to get there. While most quests involve killing boss mobs, there are some which require the player to secure items, open a passage, and make choices.

Grind Experience In Groups

When grinding with groups, you breeze through areas and kill monsters more quickly, which lets you get more items and experience in a shorter amount of time. Remember that Path of Exile is supposed to be a cooperative game, so soloing all the time is actually playing the game wrong. Unfortunately, there are still flaws in the game's loot system, so there's quite a bit of loot stealing. You'll have to get used to it until Grinding Gear Games comes up with a more decent system. Besides, you may be able to pick up someone else's loot anyway, so you just have to be vigilant.

Upgrade Your Gear

Always try to upgrade your gear when you get the chance to. Gear in these games defines your character's power and having more powerful gear makes you more powerful. So always be on the lookout for new and exciting gear and brush up on what the different stats mean. That's actually most of the fun in the game is figuring out the loot and what is best and what is worst for your character.

Pick Up All Orbs

Take note that any Path of Exile item that contains the word "orb" in it should get your alarm bells ringing in your head. Whenever you see one dropped, pick it up immediately and keep it for it will be your major item for trade. PoE Orbs are what is known as currency items, which are the items mostly used for trade in Path of Exile, especially since there's no gold here. Even common ones like Orbs of Alteration and Chromatic Orbs should be picked up.
