Grinding Gear Games today launched its latest Content Update for its online action RPG, Path of Exile. As the press release reads, Content Update 2.1.0 introduces Rigwald, the Wolven King, to the land of Wraeclast, along with the start of Standard and Hardcore versions of the new Talisman Challenge Leagues.
“These leagues represent a fresh server for new and returning players to play in, where they are on equal footing with existing players while playing the new content.”
The Talisman Challenge Leagues feature monsters possessed by ancient Ezomyte talismans, amulets infused with the power of the First Ones. The ancient magic of these relics fill creatures with power, making them a difficult challenge for Path of Exile players who chose to engage them. Slaying these creatures will yield their powerful talisman, if you can fend off other nearby creatures that will rush to claim the powerful amulets for themselves.
As with any Path of Exile update, 2.1.0 features a cornucopia of new unique items, support gems, and spells. Additionally, this update will increase the variety of skills available for bow users and dramatically increase options available to poison-based characters.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
