This major content update for the ARPG is all about the PvP action and there’s loads of tweaks and fixes.
Instead of slamming in more new story content in this major update to Path of Exile, Grinding Gear Games has focused their attention on improving and adding to the game’s PvP. After months of polling and working with the community on PvP the v1.3.0 update is now live.
Content Update 1.3.0 brings forth various new enhancements to Path of Exile, with a heavy focus on improving and accentuating Path of Exile’s PvP elements. These additions and improvements include the Torment and Bloodlines Challenge Leagues, a new PvP-focused Forsaken Master, competitive PvP tournaments with regular Seasons, PvP-only characters, new gems and Unique items, a massive update to the Passive Skill Tree, and much more.
This update brings a new Forsaken Master, Leo Redmane, Master of the Arena with missions that are PvP focused. Blank level 28 characters can now be created for the sole purpose of PvP which won’t affect main characters. It’s also worth noting though that p;layer will still need to find the PvP items through PvE gameplay.
The patch notes for this one are massive so best to check all the new features, tweaks and changes on the list.
