With the new update for Path of Exile you get the opportunity to hunt monsters and sacrifice for items.
Grinding Gear Games has released the announced Bestiary update for Path of Exile. PC players can now prove themselves as monster hunters. You kill nearly 300 beasts and sacrifice your loot to make particularly powerful items. For the Xbox One version of Path of Exile, the update appeared this week.
The Hack and Slay Path of Exile is and remains an absolute positive example for the free-to-play market. While the New Zealand developer Grinding Gear Games only demands money for cosmetic items and pets as well as other boot chests, he releases big updates with free content every few months. After 2017, with “Fall of Oriath” a huge expansion with six new story files, this year is followed by a new league that makes you a monster hunter.
The “Bestiary” update for Path of Exile, to which the league owes its name, was released on March 2nd. Here you are able to catch all kinds of monsters in the game world and ship them to your private menagerie. But instead of just watching every day what magnificent or terrifying creatures you have caged in, you sacrifice them, if your hero is ready, on the Blood Altar to craft powerful Path of Exile items. The rarer and stronger the monsters are, the better items you can make. In addition, you fill in with each trapped creature the new bestiary, in which you retrieve information about the individual creatures. It all reminds a bit of the principle of the “Monster Hunter” games. And given the popularity of the series, it’s pretty cool that Grinding Gear Games is incorporating such a feature into a free update.
But that’s not all that awaits you in two weeks in Path of Exile. The new update adds three new gems and fresh endgame challenges. With the fight against the over-elder, the most demanding role-playing content awaits you according to the developers. In addition, all 19 Ascendancy classes are revised and added to new mechanics, which in turn allows fresh builds. This big package will be rounded off with 30 more destinies, a new quest in the tenth act and ten prophecy cards.
