Path of Exile ranger screenshot from the Delirium update

March is nearly upon us, and as is tradition at this point, Path of Exile devs have announced a massive new update - Delirium. It brings with it an assortment of new challenges to undertake, new Cluster Jewels that give you even more talent choices to play around with, new skill and support gems, as well as a whole assortment of new items and quality-of-life changes to spice up the season.

The new Delirium mechanic should feel quite familiar to anyone that has played Path of Exile for a while. Once you allow the mists of Delirium to overtake you, new enemies will spawn all around you, while existing foes will gain brand new and powerful abilities. The big difference is that this applies to even to old bosses, so if you're in the mood to ramp up their difficulty and rewards, simply step into Delirium and challenge them anew.

Besides a whole boatload of items, these expeditions into Delirium will also grant you new Cluster Jewels. While their wording makes them sound overly complicated, these jewels are essentially mini talent trees you can slam into the already existing one, thus further increasing the amount of options you have when building your character. Not all of the additional talents will be equally useful, however, so do make sure to choose your jewels carefully.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this madness looks like in-game, as well as what the developers are trying to achieve with the Delirium league as a whole, through the recently posted trailer. Have a gander:

The Delirium update and its accompanying league will be coming to Path of Exile on March 13th. To learn more about it, as well as check out the new gems, you should visit the official website.
