Path of Exile Anarchy Group

DESCRIPTION

Path of Exile is a completely free to play action RPG (like Diablo or Torchlight) that is more like Diablo 2 than anything. It has a lot of positives that are working in its favor. You can discover all of this in time but let’s get to the real thing I want to talk about.

 WHY SHOULD I PLAY NOW?

Path of Exile is having a new patch go live. This Saturday at 9 pm EST PoE will be introducing two new leagues: Anarchy and Onslaught League. Forget Onslaught, let’s talk about Anarchy. The Anarchy League will be lasting 4 months. The upside to this is that everyone will be on equal footing. So even though none of you have really gotten into the game, you have the opportunity to be on the same level as everyone else. There are also specific items, AI controlled Player Bosses, and challenges that are in the Anarchy League and are no where else.

 

This could be a lot of fun and hopefully we can get some people in this (AND OFF OF DARK SOULS – wink). This doesn’t start until Saturday, so I STRONGLY suggest going to the forums to look for a good build to try. As you know, the skill tree in PoE is pretty crazy, and I’d rather spend time playing than waiting for people to research which skills they want.

 

POST WHAT CHARACTER AND ROUGHLY WHAT BUILD YOU WILL BE DOING IN THE COMMENT SECTION.

 

 MAKING A BUILD

A good place to start to look for a build is the Path of Exile Forums (http://www.pathofexile.com/forum). Go down to the bottom and choose a class that you would like to see. The class forums are basically all build suggestions, questions, and guides. Alternatively, you can search for a guide on YouTube (example – Search for “Beginning Ranger Guide”).

Also, if you type “Path of Exile Beginner ________ Build” into YouTube and put your desired class in the blank spot, you will find dozens of viable builds.

I will list a few good builds here as I find them.

EVENTS

They also have “Race Events” where you try to get the highest level, the farthest in the quest line, or the first to different objectives and once you build up enough points you can win really awesome things. They have solo race events and party race events. I participated in one last night with a random party, and it was the most fun I’ve had in the game yet. Competitive and also cooperative. Very awesome idea. Here’s the link for the events http://www.pathofexile.com/seasons.
