Currently there are speculations that this is going to be one of the map room thingy. I really hope not, that would be lame... I would like it if this was available for all difficulties as well as it being an expansion of act 2. Maybe make it only available after Dominus is killed? I dunno, I'm still pretty much a newbie, only been playing a month... My highest char is just 66.

They are planning for a new expansion every 4 months. You can't expect the expansions to be large at that release speed.

Oh, and I might as well leave their promo poster here:

That sounds like a crazy build, is that on the ranger?

Not quite; it is specifically noted that new content will find its way into the larger world...

Nope; duelist. High attack speed (nearly 3.5 strikes per second) with lots of DoT (VS ignores shields; the traps ignore about 1/4 of their victims' fire resistance)

I never said anything about it being large, I just don't want it in the map room. It would feel like an "extra" rather than part of the actual world. And I'm guessing having it through all difficulties would be fairly simple, since all they need to do is adjust the monster levels while copying and pasting the rest.

Oh that's good to hear, I wonder where in the world though.

Sounds neat, need to try out more builds, since I started playing I stuck with 3 builds. I am so boring So much variation and I stick to spark and lightning strike builds.

A logical nexus - though not the only place, I imagine - would be the Vaal ruins in Act 2... Related: it should be interesting to see how this spreading corruption is handled in terms of game mechanics.

Aside from Viper Strike and Fire Trap, the offensive skills are Cleave and Double Strike, both supported by Life Gain on Hit; Vulnerability of course helps everything (cursed tangos take 1.3x physical damage, and 1.4x from any DoT).

For mobility, Leap Slam was pretty much a no-brainer (there's no reason the goatmen should be the only ones able to hop up and down cliffs), though I've been experimenting with Smoke Mine... the latter is also fun, but requires a touch more planning to use effectively.

I personally think the mini xpac is a way for poe to bracer itself against D3, thus I do not expect it to happen often...

PoE doesn't really need to do anything against D3, it's still 10x the better game even with the D3 expansion.

Yup, just what I was going to say. More news tomorrow about the mini expansion.

Interesting, at the least.


From this video, we can surmise the following:
  • corruption changes the behavior of skill gems (here, Cyclone has you attack in place while pulling all nearby enemies to you); and
  • its effect on the world seems to be the random additions of portals to optional side areas which themselves act like maps
Also surprised that the revelation of the infamous queen's current(?) appearance hasn't spawned at least one nod to the original Total Recall in the relevant forum threads...

Now I'm curious as to whether GGG has considered that some players might find it better to be at the queen's right hand than in her path. Recall, if you will, the bandit chiefs in Act 2...

Yeah I guess I could be overhyping it, I do tend to do that a lot
I have trust in GGG that it will be pretty big this mini-expansion.

New screenshot from one of the two new leagues announced, this is from the ambush league.

Guys, please stop posting huge images directly in threads. You have the option of either using thumbnails or the images tag. Do not try to "hide" images under spoiler tags either. That's just pointless and it doesn't save anyone any space.

And with the press tour over, GGG has seen fit to share some more tidbits...

In the first, the box. This appears to function akin to certain chests in Torchlight 2 in that trying to open it will spawn its guardians, and their defeat serves as the key... the fact that the one shown is called an 'Arcanist's Strongbox' seems to hint that there are different varieties thereof, each with a particular slant in its contents.

Second, the Vaal gem. It appears that these have distinct differences in effect from their Eternal Empire counterparts... for example, this version of Molten Shell seems to function similarly to the 'lightning thorns' employed by Blackguard magi... and are a dual-resource item, requiring souls in addition to mana. 'Souls', I suspect, are a mechanic similar to flask charges.

Next, it appears that they are planning to give implicit type bonuses to armor, much as they already do with weapons and will be doing with quivers.

I can report that Melee Splash is a very good support for Viper Strike. It's quite amusing to get a group to bunch up, drop Vulnerability on them, then give one of them a full dose of VS; the support gem makes sure everyone in close proximity gets to share the love. You could say it's one half of a 'Desolator' build, with Poison Arrow+_MP being the other...

Dam right I do! The only reason I stopped playing was because I hit lvl 66 and had some pretty decent gear for my build and I looked like a trash can

Now I can be badass all the time
