The studio of Path of Exile, Grinding Gear Games will reveal PoE’s next expansion and League at 1 PM PDT today.

Exact details of our upcoming expansion will drop at the end of this week! While we haven’t provided many hints yet, you should know that this expansion shakes up Path of Exile’s metagame in a big way.

Certainly, this could be interpreted in an amount of methods. It could imply that skills which have already dominated the meta till now – just like Blade Blast, Bladefall, Blade Vortex, Earthquake, and Ground Slam, can see changes or nerfs pretty easily. Otherwise, we might see some certain Ascendancies, for example, Elementalist and Passives like Acrobatics and Phase Acrobatics being changed. Anyway, if the developer follows the very same pattern established till now, well, expecting something you love to be made much weaker.
And about the mystery that the developer stated, a lot of players say that maybe buy Path of Exile currency online will never be considered as an illegal method anymore, well, about that perspective, I am still on a neutral side. However, the chance of that happens would be very slight.
It is probably quite entertaining to check if changes are made to the endgame particularly with how patch 3.14 introduced some new reward sources across the whole game. Anyway, stay tuned for more details in the coming days. Here comes the basic information the Path of Exile’s 3.15 expansion goes live on July 23rd for PC platforms and July 28th for consoles, however, patch notes would be revealed on July 20th.
