If you were holding off on giving Path of Exile a try, now would be the best time to do so as the new Breach expansion has arrived! It brought with it two new Leagues that offer a fresh start for all players, a variety of new items and spells, as well as a whole host of new monsters to fight in.... you guessed it, the Breach!

In case you're wondering what all of this new content might look like, Grinding Gear Games also released a brief preview video showcasing the most interesting parts. Have a look:

But besides all of the new content, the Breach update/expansion has also brought with it a rather sizable balance patch. If you're interested in all of the details I would recommend you head over to the Path of Exile forums, but long story short, expect to see a much greater degree of class/gem variety. Naturally, not every skill is going to be equally as viable given that we are currently fast approaching a million combinations, but as long as they are even remotely close I'd consider that just fine.

Have fun, and do try not to one-shot yourself through reflect!
