In patch 3.11 we will be introduced to the new Harvest league, we will be seeing a ton of changes to the core gameplay, passive skill tree improvements, Atlas shuffle, and more. Today, let’s take a look at how the passive skill tree will changes.
The Path of Exile’s massive passive skill tree is one of the features that sets it apart from other ARPGs and is the core of all character builds in the game.
In the new Harvest league, Passive Skill Tree has received numerical buffs, new passive skills, and a brand new keystone passive. Path of Exile’s newest expansion is coming in just over two weeks. Here’s what you can expect from the revamp of the Passive Skill Tree in Path of Exile Harvest.
1. Not Pruning the Skill Tree
When non-gardeners think of pruning, it is often the vision of cutting things back and making them smaller. That’s not really what’s going on: The trimming and shaping are all about making a bigger, better, more beautiful thing. And that’s what has happened with the PoE’s passive skill tree.
Wilson assured me that the team was careful to not scramble the tree much, but it is growing bigger. “We didn’t to capricious and arbitrary changes; we just tried to add stuff,” he said.
2. Added New Keystone Passives and Notable Passives
The team added many new keystone passives and notable passives to the passive tree. They added passive tree support for mechanics that have been introduced recently but do not currently have any passive tree options to allow you to enhance those playstyles.
3. Better Support for Two-handed Weapons or Rage
The Passive Skill Tree has received many improvements including better support for some mechanics (for example, Two-handed Weapons or Rage) with both numeric buffs and entirely new clusters of passives.
4. Taking Popular Keystone Passives from Legion’s Timeless Jewels
They are also taking some popular keystone passives from Legion’s Timeless Jewels and making them available on the main tree, such as the Agnostic Keystone that prevents players from utilizing Energy Shield as a defense but allows the use of mana as an essential life-saving tactic.
The Agnostic Keystone is a good example of a keystone passive that was originally only accessible by socketing Timeless Jewels in your tree. The Agnostic prevents players from utilizing Energy Shield as a defense but allows players to use mana as an essential life-saving tactic. Basically, there are a lot of these keystones on the tree. Chris mentioned that they Photoshop’d out five of them in the screenshot just to focus on this one, so the players don’t start speculating too much.
