PoE2 New Confirmed: Crafting, Hideouts, Weapons, Ascendancy Classes and More

Hey there, Exiles! Buckle up, because we've got some fresh-off-the-presses info on Path of Exile 2 (PoE2), all thanks to the good folks at Grinding Gear Games (GGG). Jonathan Rogers, the maestro behind the game, has been dropping knowledge bombs on the subreddit, and boy, do we have some exciting tidbits for you! Let's jump right into the nitty-gritty!

 

 

PoE2 New Confirmed: Crafting, Hideouts, Weapons, Ascendancy Classes and More

 

Crafting in PoE2: A Whole New World

  • Crafting Bench Makeover: It's not going anywhere, folks – just getting a snazzy revamp! Expect crafting in PoE2 to be more hands-on, with potentially more direct ways to get that perfect gear.
  • Boosting Non-Bench Crafting: GGG's gearing up to make crafting outside the bench more alluring for the everyday gamer. With tweaks to those currency items, crafting is about to level up in terms of fun and engagement.

 

Hideouts: Your Personal Sanctuary

  • Hideouts Are Here to Stay: For all you hideout hoarders, breathe easy – your creative space isn't getting the axe. And yes, all those MTXs you've collected will hop over to PoE2.
  • UI Overhaul: Jonathan's hinting at some quality-of-life updates to the hideout editor. Get ready for a smoother, more intuitive experience in tailoring your in-game home.

 

Weapon-Specific Skills: Feel the Difference

  • Unique Weapon Feels: PoE2 is all set to make each weapon type a distinct experience. How you swing an axe will be a whole other ball game from swordplay.
  • Hybrid Builds? Totally Doable: With automatic weapon swapping, you can mix it up with different weapon types, giving your combat style some serious depth and variety.

 

Ascendancy Classes: Keeping It Classic

Broad Horizons, No Weapon Ties: Ascendancy classes in PoE2 will focus on general playstyles instead of locking you down to specific weapon types. So, the creative freedom you know and love in PoE stays intact!

 

Quick Hits: Other Juicy Details

  • Controller Support: Yep, PoE2 will be cozy with controllers, including the Steam Deck.
  • Divination Cards Update: These might get a refresh to spice up gameplay and keep you from grinding the same map into oblivion.
  • Guild Features in the Pipeline: Guilds are definitely in PoE2, but the fancy new features might be a post-launch treat.
  • Character Customization: Don't hold your breath for a full-blown character editor. GGG is all about deep, meaningful interactions rather than a sprawling cast of forgettable faces.

 

Wrapping It Up

GGG is clearly putting in the brainpower to make PoE2 a stellar sequel, keeping what we adore about PoE while injecting fresh, exciting elements. From crafting innovations to weapon-specific skills, and the much-loved hideouts, PoE2 is gearing up to be a legendary next chapter in our Exile adventures. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates, and remember, the path to PoE2 is paved with thrills and spills!
