Path of Exile: The skill tree blows my mind!

Path of Exile is a free online-only action role-playing game similar to Diablo 2 or, what many are saying, what Diablo 3 should have been. They had a open stress test so I thought I’d check it out. Many hardcore D3 players are defecting to this game when it comes out.

It is rare that a video game makes me speechless. You’ll hear my reaction when I see the skill tree. Holy cow…I’ve never seen anything like it. I was told there are over 1000 abilities in the game, of which a player only has access to 130ish of them. This should lead to some interesting builds instead of the normal “one optimal build” scenario that happens in MMOs.

I will be adding more videos from the stress test. So far, I like what I see.
