Path of Exile Harvest Sprouts

The new Harvest expansion is now available for the Windows edition of Path of Exile, allowing you to reap what you sow in Grinding Gear's free-to-play action/RPG. This is also coming to consoles, as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are expected next week. The details on the new content are available on the Path of Exile Website where you can find this trailer that shows off gameplay and offers developer commentary. Here's what this adds to the game:
Path of Exile: Harvest introduces a Oshabi who has enlisted your help in cultivating the Sacred Grove, an ancient garden of mysterious powers. Seeds can be planted within the grove and when ready to harvest, will produce dangerous monsters. Players will slay these monsters in order to wield their Lifeforce as a powerful crafting resource and to help other exotic crops in their growth. A bountiful harvest can unlock powerful crafting options that are unmatched by any past expansion.

"One of our favorite aspects of the Harvest League is its crafting system," said Chris Wilson, Co-founder and Managing Director of Grinding Gear Games. "We have really leaned into designing a crafting system which is much more powerful, accessible and unique than any we have made before. We can't wait to see how Path of Exile players push the potential of Harvest's powerful crafting to its limits."

Path of Exile: Harvest Key Features Include:

  • Download and play all content for free, but never pay-to-win.
  • The Harvest Challenge League and its powerful crafting system.
  • Four new Warcry skills, and a rework of three existing ones.
  • Three new Brands, one Brand support gem and revamped existing brands.
  • New 'Slam' skill category including a news Slam skill and support gem. Revamps to existing slams.
  • Dynamic rebalance to existing gameplay.
  • Improvements to over 50 unique items as well as 12 new ones.
  • A Passive Skill Tree revamp
  • Delirium core game intergration

Yeah, I'm not a "pet in games" guy, so that wasn't a temptation for me

They just roam about my hideout. Weapon skins are usually on sale too

I don't like the mystery boxes -- they feel very exploitative. I've never bought one.
I'll spend 5 (2 this time as they were on sale) coins on a weta pet or somethig else cheap to get a free mystery box each time they offer it. I won't buy a mystery box, but a "free" one is cool.

This game has a harmful micro-transaction system. Cosmetics that should cost a few bucks end up costing $180. The stash tabs are $5-15 bucks apiece. Their announcements typically announce a new micro-transaction item. For example, this one on 6/18 includes this snippet:

"If you're looking for some extra character slots for your account for launch weekend, we're running a sale on these right now! Additionally, this is your last chance to get Thaumaturgy Mystery Boxes! It will leave the store when our next mystery box enters the store! Keep in mind that if you haven't taken advantage of it yet, it's still possible to get a free Thaumaturgy Mystery Box when you spend any amount of points in the store. NOTE: this is only possible once per account. Additional purchases do not grant additional mystery boxes. If you need some extra points, we recommend checking out the Harvest supporter packs."

I don't mind when a free game has a micro-transaction component. But I do mind when the publisher employs psychologically manipulative tactics to get people to keep buying stuff.

And yet I've never bought anything from their store...weird how that worked for me...

Oh no, a business is advertising a product for sale!! "Buy our product, it'll make your life better/more enjoyable! Catch our current special SALE! Limited Time Offer!" .... What is the world coming to? I've never seen such dastardly & nefarious acts from a business selling a product!

PoE has one of the least harmful micro-transaction systems out there. Some convenience purchases (tabs) which are permanently added to your account, then everything else is cosmetic. End game content is possible without spending money.

Are you also getting subliminal messages that are making you drink your own urine, by chance?

I don't like the mystery boxes -- they feel very exploitative. I've never bought one. It is amazing to me they have $480 supporter packs. I have seen YT videos with players having so many stash tabs it easily represents over $1,000. And you can find plenty of people with enough name tags in the forums to account for that much and more...

That said, I'll admit I've spent more on this game than I should probably have. I'd have to spend some time to figure out exactly how much but certainly in excess of $200.
