Path of Exile posts Fall of Oriath patch notes prior to Friday’s launch

Is this expansion week here at Massively OP or what? In just two days, Path of Exile will be rolling out its hotly anticipated Fall of Oriath pack to PC players (Xbox One folks are still waiting to hear about a release date).

While the waiting might be hard, at least there is a wall of patch notes to dig through in preparation of the big event. The tentpole of the expansion is its half-dozen additional acts, the new pantheon system, and the new help panel — but that’s by no means all there is.

“The Fall of Oriath is our largest content expansion ever,” the team said. “In addition to six new acts of content, it includes new skill and support gems, unique items, our new water renderer, improvements to world environments, the minimap, game performance, and much, much more!”

Current primary game is SWL and secondary is MEA, but this was the third I was waiting for :).

Really looking forward to this weekend. :) Luckily, I have a few days to figure out what kind of character I want to play first.

Pretty awesome. I think I might restart with a fresh new character and go through it all from the beginning to absorb it properly. Buffs to minion gems, yum!

I feel like it’s over the top. OK skeletons could use a little buff (even though viable endgame skeleton builds did already exist), but zombies? Those things get buffed every patch, and it’s getting ridiculous at this point. It’s almost like GGG thinks anything that doesn’t oneshot mobs is underpowered.

Blizzard releases a DLC “Expansion” for Diablo 3, consisting of: Necromancer Class, which costs 15 USD.

Grinding Gear releases a full-blown expansion for Path of Exile, which more than doubles the available story content (From 4 Acts, to 10 Acts), which costs 0 USD.

When it comes to the Hack-and-Slash “Demon slaying” genre, I think Grinding Gear has Blizzard beat.

Holey crap. Guess I can read those while waiting for the LOTRO update to finish downloading. Looks like a 2 hour download.

Really looking for to this. Just what PoE needed to break out of the niche it has fallen in to.

The hype is freaking real. Can’t wait, and it’s been a very long time since I’ve been looking forward to a launch to this extent.

I may not enjoy this game how ever it’s
clear to see this will be a prolific expansion for this game, I hope people enjoy it.

You see unlike some people in the GW2 article you can still respect some one else’s game in a public place with out flaming it like you would some ones retirement party at a public bar.

Took a glance at these earlier today and to say I can’t wait it understating things a little. Been looking forward to this moment all year so fingers crossed everything goes well
