A new content update for an MMO is exciting enough, but when you pair it up with $53,750 worth of prizes, it blows off the roof. This week on December 13th, Path of Exile is pushing out its Conquerors of the Atlas update, and with it will come a special Awakener kill event.
Speaking of the patch, Grinding Gear Games has several major balance adjustments coming on the 13th too. The biggest of these changes is for bow and ranged attacks — lots of buffs, mostly. Minion builds will get a few more tweaks, and chill, shock, and freeze abilities are going to become more reliable.
