Path of Exile: Sacrifice of the Vaal Launches

Grinding Gear Games announces the release of Sacrifice of the Vaal, the first mini-expansion for Path of Exile, their action/RPG. Here's word:

Transforming Wraeclast for new and returning exiles alike, Sacrifice of the Vaal introduces an abundance of new content that reflects the vengeful return of Queen Atziri and the corruptive influence of the Vaal civilization. Featuring dozens of secret corrupted areas, over 60 new boss monsters, Ambush and Invasion challenge leagues, Cut-throat Mode and Sarn Arena PvP options, new ultimate skill gems, a crafting item with chaotic results, and an epic encounter with Atziri herself, the mini-expansion adds a rich layer of variety to the game's already highly replayable experience. The launch of this mini-expansion also marks the first simultaneous content release with Asian Path of Exile publisher Garena Online.

I played PoE, and will probably pick it up again at some point. It is a good game and I like the game design. It's cool how you can customize any character, or skill, in so many ways.

The problem is with the limits on resetting the passive skill tree, it makes it difficult to "just play it". Odds are if you just pick passives as you go along, you are going to end up with a "bad build". So, you need to find a build and follow it, which takes a lot of the fun out of playing with all the possibilities.

They really need to implement a better way for you to get more frequent passive tree resets. Something like they did in WoW would be good. First is free, after that the price fluctuates based on the amount of time since the last reset. This idea is complicated by the game's currency model, but I'm sure some smart dev. could figure it out.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
