The Grinding Gear Games team turn out game updates for Path of Exile at a phenomenal rate and each major patch usually comes with new features.
Tomorrow the 0.11.5 game update lands with a whole host of fixes, changes and new features for the ARPG. One of the new additions is the microtransaction skin transfer system, sometimes called transmogrify in other games. This allows you to take the look of another item and transfer it on to your equipped item. Once modified the item can’t be traded until it is returned to its original form.
A similar system will be added to Diablo 3 at some point with the Mystic, but GGG have got in first with this release.
Update 0.11.5 is pretty large and the full update notes are available on their website now.
