Path of Exile is getting a huge update on March 2, 2018. It’s so big that the developers were unsure whether to call it an update or an expansion. What is it about, you ask? The Bestiary League introduces hunter-gatherer Einhar Frey who will teach players how to catch and sacrifice beasts to make powerful items. Think Pokémon, except you sacrifice your Pokémon for items. A more in-depth explanation is below. The in-game currency is available at the professional online gaming house. The interested gamers can poe currency buy from those professional online gaming houses in the most affordable cost.
When the update goes live, you get to capture monsters that qualify as beasts. By throwing a net at them when they’re sufficiently weakened, the beast is transferred to a menagerie where all your captured beasts will go.
The menagerie isn’t just a zoo-like place you can view your collected beasts; it’s also where you can fight them to create items. The Blood Altar lets you fight up to four of your collected beasts. Upon succeeding in defeating them, the player gets a crafted PoE item.
There are 250 regular monsters and 40 new legendary beasts. Each of them has modifications that change the characteristics of the items that can be received at the altar. It makes the creatures an ingredient of the crafted item. Some of them can even function similarly to a Vaal Orb, without the drawback of affecting the item negatively. However, failing to kill the creatures means the player doesn’t get anything.
Capturing and fighting the four new spirit animal bosses result in PoE’s first ever gear sets. However, the developers gave it a PoE twist, in that one gear will provide a particular skill, with the other optional equipment modifying that skill in some way.
The update will also let those looking for a challenging fight both The Elder and The Shaper at the same time. It requires the player to defeat the four Shaper Guardians while they’re corrupted by The Elder, though. The Prophecy system also allows players to obtain new Fated Unique items. Finally, the update overhauls the Ascendancy system for more balance and class identity.
