Queen of the Vaal is about to make her debut in Wraeclast, seeking nothing but sacrifice in Path of Exile’s next mini-expansion. Various brand new content will be shuffled through-out the entirety of the game, creating a new experience for both the novice and the well versed sages.

Bringing a sense of danger and excitement back to Wraeclast, random new portals have been placed all over the Acts, leading to Vaal’s recent corruption and 60 of her strongest minions. Surviving an encounter with one of these foes grants the successful noble warrior a claim to both Vaal Skills and Vaal Orbs.

Vaal Skills are super-enhanced player attacks that require an extreme amount of cool-down. These attacks are typically one-hitter quitters, making them a good run-to action when entering a swarm that was underestimated. These skills start at 0 but charge with souls sacrificed. Vaal Orbs are applied to items, modifying them with new powerful abilities, but revoking any future possibilities of modification, making it a high-risk gamble.

Along with these new additions is the implementation of the Ambush League; a group of ruthless forces spawned to defend a strongbox that contains a rare reward. These tests of the mightiest will have many a tale to tell about the bravest and strongest of Wraeclast.

All of this plus the Atziri stronghold within the Apex of Sacrifice marches forward to March 5th, 2014.

    Path of Exile one of those Free2Play games that players claims that is not a P2W game. When the game has something to do with real money either make yourself look better (Cosmetics/Special Effects) or Advantages (Boosts that increase gameplay over others) is Indeed Play2Win regardless. Inaddtion, haters or not this game give disappointment to Community.

        I cant believe some1 can talk shit on poe … cus it one of the best f2p out there .
        I played like 30 hour D3 and about 200 hour poe i guess that tell everything .

        Everything in poe is very well done , you only have to play poe 5-10 min to realize that the developer ( Grinding Gear Games) are Genius . 85 Metacritic score , almost 90% steam positive review . There so many good thing to mention about this game , but i will stop here …there already thousand of review about poe so just google it…or even better Just try the game.

    Path of Exile is one of the most popular free to play games out right now, LOL. It doesn’t need your support.
