Take a look at Path of Exile’s new Charged Dash skill in action
Charged Dash is a new skill coming to Path of Exile, and when you read about how it works it probably seems a little counter-intuitive. See, when you use it, you don’t actually dash; you project a mirage of yourself forward for as long as you channel the ability. The mirage movement is based on your movement speed, only slightly faster, but you still only actually dash when you stop channeling. Then you deal damage to everything along your path and explode in electricity.

Of course, when you see it in action, it all makes perfect sense, and the designers helpfully point out how the skill can be used as both a movement tool and a damage skill with varying aspects. Check out the video just below to see it in action. It’s a bit like watching a lightning bolt find its destination, which seems appropriate.

They’ve been making some neat skills recently. Far better then the stock skills the game launched with…. many of which a basically rubbish at this point.

They’re not rubbish (at least not all, I’m not going to argue that certain melee skills are good) they just require creativity. Noone likes fireball anymore, but I made a fireball hardcaster witch in uh… either breach or legacy I can’t remember, and did fine with it. Noone likes zombies either, but omg they are so powerful if you build around them, and they’re even getting buffed nearly every patch.

That is the thing with pretty much most of the skills in POE if you build around them then you can pretty much work with anything. Some skills do require more in terms of gear to make them work and some are simply better than others in terms of clear speed. However if you are not racing and just want to clear through the game you can make anything work if you put in the effort and a little bit of thought.
