Path of Exile Witch Ascendancy artwork official

After the massive success of their previous league and its endlessly replayable temples, Path of Exile developers Grinding Gear Games have now introduced a similar concept with the latest Delve League - the Azurite Mine infinite dungeon. As the name itself would imply, the infinite dungeon allows you to wonder through a variety of caves in search of loot, currency and glorious combat, as well as resources with which you can upgrade your trusty Crawler machine so you can be even more efficient in your dungeon-crawling.

If you're wondering what exactly that looks like in-game, as well as what else this Delve League has to offer, allow me to share the recently posted trailer. It's a fairly lengthy video, so if you're confused about how the Azurite Mine works, I would definitely recommend you check it out. Have a look:

I've played around with the Azurite Mine for a couple of days now, and to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure what to think. On one hand it's great being able to choose what sort of loot I'm working towards and have all of it be available within a reasonable timeframe, but on the other hand I can't help but feel that the Azurite Mine is far too simplistic to stay engaging for long. After all, there's only so many times you can run through seemingly identical tunnels before their luster wears of - something the temples didn't really have to worry about given how well paced they were.

Grinding Gear Games are aware of the complaints and are working on addressing them, however, so hopefully the Azurite Mine will soon become a lot more interesting to meddle with. Until such an update comes, you should check out some of the new gems and items, as well as the numerous balance changes over at the official website. Those alone will keep you entertained for quite a while.

Have fun!
