The upcoming Blight League in Path of Exile means changes, obviously, but more specifically it means changes to several class builds. In a couple of new previews shared on the game’s forums we got a look at two such updates to the Poison Assassin and to Mine gameplay.
First off, the Assassin: A variety of new attacks are coming that seek to make applying poisons feel potent once more. Chief among this new update is the Elusive buff, which doesn’t have a duration so much as loses potency over time unless it gets refreshed.
On the Mine-laying side of things, another forum post granted a rundown of several new Mine skills and a list of mechanics changes. Mines are now thrown, they can be laid much faster, and detonating them is now an instant skill. Mines also detonate in sequence, allowing you to lay out more mines while the detonation sequence is occurring and they’ll join in the explosion party.
You can get a more video-minded look at the Poison Assassin’s new tricks and explosive new Mines in the videos below, and be sure to take a look at these class changes and other new things to look forward to as part of our preview with Grinding Gear Games.
