Path Of Exile Blight is the latest expansion to our favorite game and it actually comes with some really nice ideas. This time around you have fungal blights that are drawn from the tower defense genre. And in this case you have defense scenarios. Your player will need to be active and reach victory but at the same time you will need to create towers in order to establish a defensive perimeter. There will be waves upon waves of enemies that will follow fungal lines and your focus is to win.
How do you play Blight?
An interesting thing is that you are allowed to decide what towers you can use and you can easily earn special oils too. These can help you tune amulets and rings without a problem. The rare oils can be used on special sets and these will give you high tier passives and some sphere grids that can come in handy. With their help you can literally try to break the rules as you use passives even if you're not connected to those. It makes sense, it's actually rewarding and unique to do that, and the results themselves are quite exhilarating because of it.
Aside from that the Path Of Exile Blight expansion also comes with the 3 revamped balance archetypes, as well as new skills, the aforementioned support gents, two new old leagues come into the old game and you have more freedom to choose how you want to play the content and have fun with it in a great and rewarding manner.
Another thing you need to know is that the infected are unusual and some of them will have specific weaknesses, others less so. The idea is to identify the weakness of that infected and then harness it to your own advantage. It makes a lot of sense to do that and you will find it quite handy and interesting at the same time. that being said, you will receive a chest with rewards for every tendril lane that you defend. However this is not as simple as you can imagine. In fact the gameplay gets increasingly difficult, so the challenges move on and you will have to adapt to that.
Incredible and very powerful towers
A thing you will notice with PoE Blightis that there are a plethora of different types of towers here. And each one of them comes with its fair share of interesting options. For example, there's a summon tower, one that will stun, a burn tower, empower tower, shock, chill tower, debilitate and petrify tower. You will be able to place as well as upgrade all these towers the way you want. And the cool thing is that you can combine tactics with tower defense in order to create a very deep and immersive gameplay. You rarely get this kind of stuff, which is exactly what makes Path of Exile Blight so good in the first place. This is different, fun and super exciting to try out, which is why you need to give it a try and see how it works for yourself.
Another incredible thing about Blight is that no region in the game is free from this kind of stuff. In fact, even the endgame regions will have blight and you really have to try and defend everything as you get better and better at the entire experience. The game does pose some interesting challenges, so it's not exactly the easiest thing to handle here. But at the same time you will have dozens of lanes to play with here and numerous rewards to achieve. We believe that the endgame is where you can get all the cool loot and items, which is an incredible experience to say the least. The developers said that there are regions with 20 lanes, or at least they are experimenting with that.
As we established earlier, you will have the oils that sister Cassia will use to anoint the jewelry. What that means is you can easily improve your items and make them even more powerful. You will be able to enhance a ring with two oils and then you get a stellar tower modifier. If you combine 3 oils you can enchant the amulet with passive skills from the skill tree.
This is great because the rarity does differ quite a bit and you will have to try and improve as much as possible as you reach that next level and push the boundaries in magnificent ways. You have to keep in mind that there are 12 oils in total, each one has their own different rarity level, so results can indeed differ from one another. But at the end of the day it's this difference that strives to push the boundaries and it just makes the process a lot better. It makes you play more and more as you try to find the right enhancements for your items.
Speaking of great and powerful items, 4 of the unique items are exclusive to the blight league and these are forming an armor set. The set can be anointed with notable passives and you can get up to 5 of these passives. Obviously this leads to a whole lot of new possibilities.
You're not forced to run the master missions even if you encounter them. The idea here is that you can accumulate master missions and enter them when you want. It's a lot better than being forced to do them, as some can be pretty long. They also improved the Betrayal rewards to make this entire experience a lot simpler here. They also added the Synthesis and Legion boss fights inside the core game too, which is a blast.
Moreover, we now have revamped necromancers. That means you have a much better per gem level progression of the minion types. They also introduced support gems and a great high level wand base type too. This is just incredible, unique and different, which is what makes a game like this so enticing and fun in the first place. The same thing happened with the poison assassin archetype, they added new mechanics, some exciting defensive opportunities and in the end it's just a lot of fun.
The game has 18 new divination cards, 16 unique new items and 16 support gems and skills. That's great because you have a lot more variety with the game and you finally feel immersed and enjoy the experience a lot more.
Path Of Exile Blight does a very good job at expanding the game even more and it continues to make the game even better than it was. There are tons of interesting options to check out here, and the tower defense idea is wonderful, as it is unexpected. If you are very passionate about this type of creative, fun gameplay you should totally check out Path of Exile Blight when it arrives September 6, it will be a plethora of fun and super exciting, definitely worth your time and effort and you do want to take your character on these new quests!
