Path of Exile Classes Selection Guide: Find Your Perfect Match in 2024


PoE Class Basics

Breaking the RPG Mold: In this RPG, classes do not restrict skill acquisition or weapon selection. It's all about what suits you.


The Root of All Builds

  • Attributes Make the Character: Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence. These are more than mere numbers as they have a bearing on how you can build your character. The kind of gems and weapons that are compatible with you depend on your strength.
  • Location, Location, Location: Where your class sits on the tree impacts its strengths. Marauders (bottom left) are life-based tanks, Rangers (bottom right) focus on dexterity and bow skills while Witches (top) rely heavily on intelligence and energy shield.
Strength Dexterity  Intellingence
2 Strength = 1 Max Life 2 Dexterity = 2 Accuracy 2 Intellingence = 1 Mana 
5 Strength = 1% Increased Melee Damage 5 Dexterity = 1% Increased Evasion 5 Intelligence = 1% Increased Energy Shield 


Class Breakdown

  • Marauder: A tanky behemoth. Ideal for melee and life-focused builds.
  • Ranger: Quick and sharp-witted. Great for users of bows and fans of poison.
  • Witch: A highly intelligent magic user type character. Best for players who seek to boost their energy shields as well as cause elemental damage.
  • Duelist: The best swordman-Bowman combined. You can have a versatile character if you can't decide between the bow and the sword.
  • Templar: Melee mixed with spells. An exceptional hybrid class.
  • Shadow: Sneaky and magic based. It's a combination of claws, daggers, traps, and mines.


The Power of Ascendancy

Ascendancy Classes: Each class has three unique ascendancies, offering specialized skills and gameplay changes. From the Juggernaut's tankiness to the Assassin's critical strike prowess, these are game-changers!


Pro Tip: Before choosing your class, always take note of what ascendency game changers it has in store as you play it which may completely change your style.
