With the recent unveiling of the Heist expansion for Path of Exile and its various new mechanics, players of the ARPG understandably have questions. Luckily, Grinding Gear Games has answers. Lots and lots and lots of answers. So many answers, in fact, that they were broken up in to two posts and a 30-minute video in classic GGG hyper-informational fashion.
The answers run the gamut of Heist-related matters including details on getting Markers, Contracts, and Blueprints, whether players can nab an Artifact even when the place they’re breaking in to enters high alert, things to pay attention to in order to successfully complete a heist, a smattering of information about how party play works in heists (including confirmation that Marker drop rates are higher when partied up), and how nabbing rewards from Curio Display rooms works among a host of other things. The answers also confirm that the devs will share more details about new skills and skill reworks next week.
There is a lot of ground to cover, so feel free to read up and watch the embed below. Also, make sure to check out MJ’s in-depth coverage of the Heist expansion, which is similarly full of so many details that it had to be split in two.
