Grinding Gears has announced the deployment of the second major content update for Path of Exile. The update is significant for the addition of two four-month leagues, Anarchy & Onslaught. In addition, the game has been rebalanced and passive skills have been reset.
A significant re-balance of game areas and monster abilities has also been introduced with 0.11.0. All monster damage has been reduced, corresponding with reductions to passive skills involving player Life and Energy Shield. Now characters rely much less on life than before, compensating with defensive options such as armor. Although melee characters benefit most from this re-balance, previously underpowered builds have also seen substantial improvements. As a result of these changes, players will receive a full reset of their passive skills via a single-use button.
