Hey exiles! It's another day and with it comes another bundle of announcements about Path of Exile 2 from the official PoE2 subreddit and Discord. This article is going to answer some more of the most burning questions concerning Path Of Exile 2, from dual-wielding to photo mode, and so on. Let's get a clearer picture of what's coming. 

 

 

Path of Exile 2: Top Questions Answered and New Insights

 

Dual Wielding Weapons in PoE2

  • Question: Can you dual wield different weapon types and use skills for either hand?
  • Answer: No, they are not planning on dual wielding two different weapons types. Such builds may first appear restricted considering that fact about this game, but its subsequent history has proved other way around. PoE 2 seems to be all about focusing on specific weapon identities.

 

Photo Mode in PoE2

  • Question: Will there be a photo mode in PoE2?
  • Answer: This is because the fixed camera perspective in Path of Exile makes developing a Photo Mode extremely hard. Changing the camera can cause visual artifacts or performance issues within the game world. However, there might be close-ups on characters during character select screen in PoE 2.

 

Scepters as Offhand Weapons

  • Question: Can you hold a scepter in the offhand?
  • Answer: Yes, offhand scepters will be introduced into PoE2. Scepters, wands, and staves will become conduits instead of weapons that can cast spells.

 

Voice Lines and Character Dialogue

  • Question: Will characters have specific dialogue for different skills?
  • Answer: Yes, each character has special voice lines when using skills that fit their theme well enough; like a mercenary having many lines for crossbow skills.

 

Specters Mechanic Update

  • Question: How will specters function in PoE2?
  • Answer: Spectres are coming back with a "Pokeball like" process. Once the spectre is bound to a gem, summoning it is a permanent choice, with no fear of running out of bodies.

 

Uncut Gems and Gem Crafting

  • Question: What do uncut gems do in PoE2?
  • Answer: Uncut gems can be crafted into any skill gem you like. There will be no color locking allowing for more flexibility in builds.

 

Revamping Skill Descriptions UI:

  • Question: Will there be changes to the skill descriptions UI?
  • Answer: Yes, however, details are still undisclosed. The new socketing mechanism in PoE2 has led to removal of support gem lettering system.

 

Character Models and Voice Actors

Insight: Templar and Druid are basically one character with different backgrounds and looks. They might have similar voice actors but with distinct lines.

 

Skill and Support Gem Mechanics

Update: In Path of Exile 2 most support gems will not increase the Mana cost of skills they support anymore; this creates an entirely new dynamic for skill and resource management.

 

Rolling as a Shape-shifted Bear

Clarification: By taking specific nodes on the tree it is possible to roll while being shape-shifted.

 

Inclusion of Past League Mechanics

Confirmation: To include as many past league mechanics as possible, PoE2 intends to update and revise them according to the standards of the new game.

 

That's a wrap on the latest batch of questions and answers about Path of Exile 2! The beloved original game is transforming into an exciting sequel filled with fresh mechanics, updated features, among other things.
