As part of the Conquerors of the Atlas expansion, we're doing a full review of Bow skills and other mechanics that influence Bow balance. Ranged Attack Totems have been under-utilised for a while, and we've made some significant changes to their core mechanics as well as adding some interesting new abilities which are unique to the archetype.

We've made a number of changes to Ranged Attack Totems:
  • Ranged Attack Totem skills are now called Ballistas, with the existing support gem being renamed to Ballista Totem Support.
  • All Ballista skills start with 3 maximum totems, as does Ballista Totem Support.
  • Ballista Totems place much faster than other totems, letting you quickly deploy your full power.
  • Ballistas are all placed quite close to your character now. This makes your positioning important, however it isn't a large disadvantage as most of the Ballistas have a long firing range.
  • New passives ...

Tytykiller, you have an amazing attitude and it was an honour to meet you in person. You are one of the best racers in the history of the game and I am looking forward to your results in 2020.

The Atlas of Worlds will be undergoing a number of changes in the Conquerors of the Atlas expansion. Today, we're going to detail several new systems and clarify what will happen to any existing systems affected by these changes.

The first thing that you'll notice when opening your Atlas that you no longer start at the corners, where the Tier 1 maps were previously. Instead, you'll now be starting next to the map device in the centre of the Atlas. The Zana questline in which you pursue the Shaper and Elder throughout the Atlas has been replaced with a brand new story immediately following those events.

The Atlas has been divided up into eight regions. As you play through each region, completing maps as you go, you'll have the opportunity to fight new endgame bosses, who take up a Citadel on a specific map within a region. Upon defeating these bosses, they will drop a Watchstone. Watchstones can be socketed into your Atlas in any region of your choosing. Upon socketing... Read more

Hey, that's me taking with Bryan. I dont remember sitting down on that side of the table.

Hehe, you were in an (admitted) state that may have interfered with your memory of the tail end of the evening :P

But I had a great time chatting with you, hope to continue our conversation down the road!

ExileCon Recap

2 days ago - Natalia_GGG on Steam - Thread - Direct
This weekend we hosted ExileCon. We had more than 1100 international attendees plus a large New Zealand contingent (including our full development staff). We tried very hard to recreate Wraeclast at the venue, and had a great time entertaining our guests with presentations, interviews, impromptu Einhar appearances and the card game. Today's news post is a recap of some of the awesome memories from ExileCon.

The Aotea Centre in Auckland Was decorated in a true Path of Exile style with stained glass windows from the Chamber of Innocence, a Map Device table, a giant Hangman's Tree and a statue of the Hooded Figure, an NPC from Path of Exile 2.
