More mobs to kill and better telegraphed attacks should make some bosses better.
Grinding Gear Games has made no secret about the fact that Path of Exile’s last Challenge League, Synthesis, didn’t go over well. That being said, the next league is Legion and it promises a much more traditional “kill everything” style of gameplay that fans enjoy. New mechanics aren’t the only thing coming though – the next expansion will also see improvements made to melee combat and the game’s bosses.
A short video was released to showcase some of these changes. While they’re not explicitly detailed for new players, veterans should recognize the presence of more mobs (good for leeching health) and more telegraphed attack animations. It should ensure that melee combat is just that much smoother to play.
Path of Exile: Legion will also bring new Skill Gems, new Unique Items, and new archetypes like Blood and Sand for builds like the Gladiator. The Challenge League goes live on June 7th, PDT for PC and on June 10th for Xbox One and PS4. Stay tuned for more news on changes, especially to existing leagues and the Atlas of Worlds (if any are indeed made).
