Grinding Gear Games is giving Exiles something to celebrate, not once, or twice but thrice over this December. Path of Exile players can expect to take part in three separate events to close out this year, starting on December 4th.

Coming to Exiles first is the Mayhem Event, which will take previous modifiers from previous leagues and, as GGG puts it: "turning them up to 11."

"Each area in Wraeclast will have one of the following scenarios: 20 Rogue Exiles, 20 Strongboxes, 20 Invasion Bosses, 20 Breaches, 20 Tormented Spirits, or 20 Harbingers, with mods changing every hour."

The next week, starting on December 11th, players can see the one-week Endless Delve event kick off, brining players to the Azurite Mine.  Per Grinding Gear Games:

In this unique event, players start their plunge into the perilous darkness with some starter gear. Players will have access to the passive points normally gained from quests and incur Kitava’s resistance penalties at various level thresholds. Players can ascend their character using the Altar of Ascendancy from within the Mine Encampment while Lilly Roth and Niko will be available to provide skill gems. Players will not have access to their Hideouts or any towns, which means they’ll be going solo against the darkness. Good luck with that.

The last event is a three-week Heist Flashback Event, Path of Exile players will see in each game area a flashback to a popular mod - not just one, but three at once - from past leagues. These mods, such as 2 additional Rogue Exiles or Tormented Spirits, will change each hour, on the hour.
