Do you love Path of Exile? I mean, do you really love Path of Exile? Do you love it enough to watch multiple hour-long presentations from various developers of the game on how they make it?
If you do, then this is the post for you! We’ve embedded several videos below that Grinding Gear Games has made available over the past couple of months that showcase how the Wraeclast sausage is made. (What would be in Wraeclast sausage? Probably some very questionable meats.)
If you don’t have the hours and hours required to watch all of the videos below, you can just skim through the highlights of ExileCon in this video that runs nearly the same length of time as it takes light from the sun to reach the Earth.
But if you do have the time, then sit back and enjoy. And don’t forget to take stretch breaks and hydrate.
