Path of Exile answers some of the frequently-asked questions about the Legion league

That is it, chief.

The bell tolls for Path of Exile’s melee in its upcoming league, but it’s the celebratory sort of bell. According to the latest set of answers from the development team, there are balance improvements for two-handed weapons just like other melee mechanics, as well as upcoming previews for the melee-based Ascendancy classes. On the flip side, melee-based bosses will also be hitting harder when they connect, since melee balance is a sword that cuts both ways. Literally, on account of swords being melee weapons and all.

The list of questions and changes don’t stop there, either; Winter Orb is receiving adjustments to bring it more in line with other skills, for example. There are also more bits of detail about things like Incubators (which players generally will not be awash in without specifically trying to be) and the date for the full patch notes (June 4th in the US). Check out the full rundown of answers to frequent questions on the official site. You can also check out our preview for a more in-depth overview.

Interested to see what kinds of over the top builds we get this league. I might do something unusual for me, like play a meta build, though I tend to get bored with builds that are too slick. I like the quirky ones.

Those visual changes to attack range are pretty nice. Continuing to like what they’re doing/showing off, and really optimistic for the big 4.0 patch. Really hoping it comes with an overhaul for player models, in part so that some of the exiles finally remember that pants exist.

When they set out to come up with 4.0 they did so with the expectation that they would be taking on Diablo 4 not Diablo: Immortal so they have supposedly pulled out all the stops.

Personally I am expecting a new engine at the very least and pants if we are really lucky

Yeah, I saw a few comments from Chris Wilson to that end. It’s smart of them, and they’ll eventually be going up against D4 anyways so invest the time, money, and effort now while things are all going well to set them up for success in the future.

Oh well, haven’t kept up to see when 3.8 comes out next month but I’ll be back playing the league again, assuming Legion is better than Synthesis. It’ll be interesting trying to see if I can remake my solo-friendly aurabot there without access to tons of cheap gear like I had on standard when I made him.
