Path of Exile: A Brief Introduction to the Shadow Class

Path of Exile Shadow Class

If you are new to the popular ARPG Path of Exile, then several features may seem a bit alien to you at first. There are a few things that you need to wrap your head around, such as utilizing PoE Orbs, jewellers orb, and buy PoE currency. Perhaps more importantly, you just need to figure out how certain classes work and whether or not they cater to your personal gaming style. This article will discuss one of the classes that will be available to you during your time in the game.

The Shadow Class is one of the hybrid classes in Path of Exile. Choosing this class will see the player opting for quick-use melee weapons such as daggers, claws and other close-range short-but-deadly weaponry. The way of the Shadow also sees a tactical approach with the use of traps, as players attempt to always stay one step ahead.

The class itself isn’t without its drawbacks, however. It is considered by many players to be one of the hardest classes to play since they are far more fragile to attack than other classes. Nevertheless, the evasive techniques used by the Shadow allow players to counter this disadvantage, courtesy of the traps used and energy shield at their disposal. The Shadow also adopts the use of masks, coats, spiked shields, garbs, raiments, and mitts for their armor.

Ascendancy Classes

Ascendancy classes are sub-classes that can be chosen by the player and be made use of after completing the Labyrinth for the first time. From here, players will be able to access the Ascendancy skill tree which caters to their specific class. Ascendancy skill points can be gained for completing the Labyrinths, which can be unlocked as you progress through the Acts in the game. A total of eight points can be spent on new skills, following the unlocking of the Eternal Labyrinth, but you don’t need to worry about that until you reach post-game.

There are three Ascendancy classes for the Shadow, which are made up of the Assassin, Saboteur, and Trickster.

Assassin

By choosing the Assassin, players will experience a methodology that focuses on critical striking. There are a number of skills available to the Assassin which will enhance how effective these strikes are, with power leveling charges being progressed and bonus damage being attached to them. These strikes are subject to certain conditions, but can have devastating effects on their opponents. This ascendancy gives players the feel of a true Shadow, allowing them to further their critical damage bonuses with the use of poison, as well as increasing their speed with particular buffs.

Saboteur

The Saboteur approach differs slightly but is all the same just as deadly a choice as the Assassin if used correctly. As mentioned in the introduction, the Shadow class makes use of traps and mines, and that is where this ascendancy comes directly into play, managing to use the specialist skill to gain a significant advantage. On the subject of advantages, the Saboteur also possesses the ability of regeneration and is immune to many ailments that the opponent may choose to inflict upon them.

The Saboteur specializes in traps and mines to greatly enhance their utility. The class also possesses other utility bonuses like blind synergy, area of effect bonuses, regeneration, and ailment immunities.

Trickster

The Trickster sub-class offers a potent mixture of speed and evasion that resembles the true mark of the Shadow. There is also a heavy focus on defence, using the likes of Shade Form and Escape Artist to add further dimensions to their defenses. While this does encourage the player to take the odd hit, the rewards are certainly beneficial for doing so. Reduced mana consumption is also a highlight from such instances as Weave the Arcane, and can also gain charge generation for Power and Frenzy.

Now that you have an idea of the benefits of choosing the Shadow class, you should be ready to delve deeper into the depths of Path of Exile and explore different builds to make you an extremely formidable force. Don’t forget to learn more about buying PoE Orbs, chaos orbs, exalted orbs standard league, an orb of fusing and experiment with your character’s build to make the most of your PoE currency!

PATH OF EXILE LOOT FILTERS GUIDE

There are so many loot filters you can choose from, but there are only a few that can be considered great—especially for beginners. Using loot filters is essential when playing Path of Exile, especially if you’re planning to play all the way to the endgame content. The premise of item sorters is to be flexible to each player according to their needs, so if you’re looking for certain filters that are designed for racing or for a certain class, then we’ve got you covered. We’ll be showing you the best PoE items drop sorters to use in various situations like for farming PoE Currency and PoE Orbs plus a general overview of what they are.

Path of Exile Loot Filters Guide

What Are Loot Filters?

Loot filters allow you to customize which item labels you want to be displayed in your inventory. Whether it’s the color of the text, drop sound effects, size of the text, or certain items for your class, you can choose which of the resources you want to be displayed. This automatically hides any potentially bad items that you’ll get—or ones that aren’t necessary for your class. By completely hiding certain item drops that you don’t need, this sorts out your inventory and makes it look more organized. However, do note that this will remove your ability to pick up hidden items unless you hold down the item drop hotkey for a good second.

Best Path of Exile Loot Filters to Use

As such, we’ve rounded up a list of the best Path of Exile items drop sorters you can use.

You can use it from level 1-100 with ease and without doing any modifications at all, making it an item sorter that you should consider using.

Neversink’s Loot Filter

OSRS Iorwerth Dungeon Guide

OSRS Iorwerth Dungeon Guide

Another day, another dungeon for the OSRS community! The unique training dungeon of the Iorwerthclan is finally available to explore! No doubt you will face macabre creatures of the night such as Dark Beasts, Kurasks and more, but what else is there to find in this all-new dungeon? Will you prevail in the end by managing to find precious loot? Or will you barely make it out alive as those selfsame furious beasts chase after you, wanting to skin you alive for disturbing their home? Join us as we explore the mysterious cavern filled with OSRS gold and insanely high-level monsters!

What is The Iorwerth Dungeon?

The Iorwerth Dungeon belongs to the warriors and slayers of the Iorwerth clan. This facility is an elite training dungeon for aspiring soldiers looking to serve the military. It is located in Prifddinas’ Iorwerth district near the south-west part of the city. You will only have access to the dungeon once you have completed the Song of the Elves quest. After doing so, you then will be able to accept Slayer tasks from Konar who is located inside the dungeon.

The dungeon offers a lot more than just Slayer tasks, though. It also consists of numerous rooms, all of which contains a slew of creatures inside them that have a chance to drop crystal shards. You can also use a dwarf multi-cannon when battling against them, but the whole dungeon itself is based on single-way combat. As a surprise, you can also locate Morvran by the dungeon’s exit!

Monsters You Can Find

As you probably know by now, there are multiple rooms in theIorwerth Dungeon, all of which are rife with monsters. Here are the ones that you can find inside these rooms:

Dark Beast—Dark Beasts are monsters that can be found in the Mourner Tunnels besides in Iorwerth Dungeon. Requiring about 90 Slayerto slay, they are the only monsters that can drop Dark Bows and the Death Talisman. These Dark Beasts can attack both in Melee and Magic, and are deemed aggressive monsters from the Dark Dimension. They also have accurate melee attacks, meaning you’ll have to use a “Protect from Melee” if you don’t have much health.

Kurask—Large and heavy with sharp horns attached to its head, the Kurask is a slayer monster that can be a bit of a headache to deal with. Besides requiring 70 Slayer to even damage them, you’ll have to equip yourself with a leaf-bladed spear, leaf-bladed sword, leaf-bladed battleaxe, broad arrows, broad bolts, or magic darts. The Kurask is also immune to poison and venom. Besides that, they’re known for their drops—such as the light mystic robe top, kurask head, and leaf-bladed sword.

Nechryaels—The Nechryaels is an evil death demon that will require you to have a whopping 80 Slayer just to deal damage to them. These creatures are highly farmed for their rune boots drop. The rune boots are among the very few ones that can offer a Strength bonus when used. The Nechryaels also drop seeds and combat runes often. To deal with a Nechryaels, use Arclight to whittle down their health immediately. This is an effective strategy since they’re demonic creatures.

Waterfiend—Waterfiends are made of water and have high resistance against all forms of combat—except crush attacks. They attack players using magic projectiles that are similar to Water Blasts, they also have a magical ranged attack that resembles ice arrows. You can kill this monster with relative ease since it requires only 1 Slayer.

Bloodvelds— The “Lickitung” of Old School RuneScape, Bloodvelds are demons that use their long tongues to attack their opponents. They mostly drop mithril items and black boots, so in terms of rarity, there’s not much incentive to farm them. Bloodvelds require 50 Slayerfor you to deal damage to them.

Moss Giants—Moss Giants are commonly-seen monsters throughout the world of OSRS. They are large creatures that have a human-like resemblance to their features. While they’re not exactly ideal for those who want to farm up on OSRS gold by killing monsters, Moss Giants are what players commonly train on. This is due to their low defense capabilities.

HOW TO BEAT FFXIV’S OPERATION ARCHON

Operation Archon is the last story quest of the base game. As such, players need to beat it to unlock postgame content and beyond. However, to beat it, you need a full team of eight, as well as a sound strategy to follow. Don’t worry, this won’t make you spend your hard-earned FFXIV Gil.

Read on for the strategy and team composition.

FFXIV OPERATION ARCHON

Team Composition

You have 8 slots. Assign four slots to damage dealers, two to tanks, and two for healers. This way, you can separate into two teams. Two damage dealers, a tank, and a healer make up each team. As for why, it will be detailed in the strategy section.

For recommended classes, Summoners are valuable since they can call in creatures to temporarily fill in the roles of downed allies. They’re also exceptional damage dealers through their damage over time effects. Then there are White Mages, who have the best HP recovery skills and buffs. However, even if you haven’t recruited any of those two, you’ll still be able to beat the quest if you follow the strategy. That is, as long as you also complete the roles.

Strategy

There are two tankers in the team. While one takes on the boss, the other acts as an off-tank. At a certain point in the fight, extra mobs will appear. It’s the off-tank’s job to keep those enemies from harassing the main tank. That’s why you’ll need two teams. One will focus on the boss, and the other will focus on the extra mobs that will appear.

Now, the boss has three major damage-dealing attacks to avoid. First, it shoots sparks in front of it. A critical hit can OHKO DPS and healers in range. Avoid being in front as much as possible if you’re not a tanker. Second, it shoots out a ring of fire that will damage anyone caught inside. You’ll see the range of the ring where it will land. Lastly, it will fire missiles that can kill anyone in the middle of the explosion. A red circle will appear where the missile will land. The main tank will have to drag the boss out of range so the DPS can continue dealing damage while avoiding the missiles.

Keep on damaging the boss while being mindful of the above strategy, and you’ll see the fight to the end.

Additional Notes

It doesn’t matter which Final Fantasy classes you recruit. What’s more important is being able to follow the strategy and having the right characters for each role. The teams can be broken into 3 and 5, as long as one character fills each role in the three-man team. They should also be able to keep the extras at bay so the other team can do their jobs properly. Communicate and work with your teammates, not against them.

If you find your attacks are not effective from behind the boss, try going to the side. Pay attention so you don’t end up in front of it though. Healers should keep the party’s HP topped up as much as possible as they join in the attack.

And that’s that for Operation Archon! Following these instructions should let you finish the fight easily so you can get back to farming FFXIV currency. Continue enjoying Final Fantasy XIV!

Side to Side: Which Faction Should You Be in WoW: Battle for Azeroth

Those who have been playing World of Warcraft for quite some time now don’t find it difficult to choose between Alliance and Horde. In World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth, however, the choice between the two is going to be tougher. This is all thanks to the changes this expansion has made to both factions. So if you can’t decide, here’s a look at the key differences between the two to help you out.

WoW Azeroth or WoW Horde

A Matter of Morality

The storyline comes first and most important for the lore-invested WoW player. The Alliance is still these goody-two-shoes whose plan is to reclaim the lands and honor (not to mention the WoWc gold) they lost to their rivals. On the other side of the pond, the Horde is having quite a bit of an identity crisis. With Sylvanas at the helm committing all sorts of unsavory acts, this group of maligned but proud and honorable races must examine what it truly means to be a noble Horde, and defend itself from an untrusting and altogether angry Alliance.

If you want to play it safe, stick with the Alliance. If you want a side that wants to do good but also has a good deal of internal issues, then you’d be better off going with the Horde.

Strategic Location

Locations, and in turn, quests, play a big role in World of Warcraft. So if you think a faction’s territory is not something to consider when deciding one’s faction, maybe Battle for Azeroth will change your mind. Because aside from the fact that many new locations for this patch are faction-exclusive, they’re also quite the sight to behold.

For the Alliance, there’s KulTiras, the thalassocratic home of the Proudmoores. Isolated ever since the fall of the Alliance of Lordaeron, the island is finally returning to prominence once more, as the current Alliance is now in need of ships that they can supply.

KulTiras is divided into three zones: Tiragarde Sound, the main city that is under the control of the Proudmoorehouse; Stormsong Valley, where ships are sent to be blessed by priests; and Drustvar, a mountainous region that was once inhabited by a druidic race called Drust.

As for the Horde, they get Zandalar, the homeland of the Zandalari trolls and the birthplace of all troll civilizations in Azeroth. While the Alliance is trying to get the Proudmoores back into their fold, the Horde is trying to recruit the Zandalari trolls.

The three zones in Zandalari are Zuldazar, the most ancient city in all of Azeroth; Nazmir, which was the center of troll civilization before it was reclaimed by swampland; and the hostile deserts of Vol’dun.

Racial Arms Race

Last but definitely not least would be Allied Races. Heck, if there’s something that can convince a player to join a particular faction, it’d be this!

Allied Races are new races for each faction. To unlock hem, you’ll have to finish certain series of quests. For the Alliance, it’s Dark Iron Dwarves, Void Elves, and LightforgedDraenei; and for the Horde, it’s Nightborne (Elves), Mag’HarOrc, and the HighmountainTauren.

As you can see, they’re not completely new races; more like variations of pre-existing races. Nevertheless, they’re very much worth trying out because of their unique abilities. For example, Void Elves have Spatial Rift, which allows them to create rifts in time and space and teleport through it. Cool, isn’t it?

It’s never easy to choose a side, especially when both of them have something equally good to offer that the other side does not have. Still, you have to, because this is a war, and to participate, you have to pledge allegiance to one team.

So what will it be: Azeroth or Horde?

World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth Rise of Azshara Heart Essences

RISE OF AZSHARA HEART ESSENCES

The newest update patch for Battle for Azeroth introduces two new areas, as well as everything that comes along whenever one opens up. That means new characters, quests, stories, mounts, pets, dungeons, and even a new raid! WoW Classic is still a month or so away, so this patch provides a good way to spend your time while as await the release of Classic.

Now, one of the more important features it brings are the Heart of Azeroth Essences. Here’s all you need to know about these items, from where to get them to how to use them.

All About Heart of Azeroth Essences

Essences are a new item category that will strengthen your character. Up to three of them will fit into your Heart of Azeroth. They have a Major as well as a Minor effect. The former is an active skill, while the latter is a passive skill. Depending on the slot you place them in, either both effects or only the minor one will be active. You can only equip unique essences, that is, you can’t have two of the same essence equipped.

Try out combinations and figure out what’s best for you!

How to Unlock Heart of Azeroth Essences

Once you’ve achieved building the hub in Nazjatar, MagniBronzebeard will give you a quest called Essential Empowerment. Finishing the questline will let you unlock the Essence Forge and earn an achievement as well as your first essence. It also serves as a sort of tutorial for the system, so be sure to take note of the explanations!

Doing the quests will also unlock the slots for your Heart of Azeroth. The first one will unlock both Major (active) and Minor (passive) skills for an essence, provided the Heart is at an appropriate level. Further levels will unlock two slots that will allow you to use only the Minor effect alternating with stamina boosts. Your character must be level 120 to unlock your HoA’s first slot.

To learn a new one, you have to return to the Forge. However, they can be swapped out anywhere you may swap talents. You may also use a Tome of the Quiet Mind or similar items for the same effect.

Where to Get Heart Essences

Many activities give these Heart Essences. PvP, raid bosses, quests, Mythic+ dungeons, reputation rewards, and more will reward you with essences. Each one would fit certain roles in a party (tank, DPS, healer), but there are some characters in any role can use.

Furthermore, you may upgrade them to improve the skills they provide. At the highest rank, there’s a cosmetic effect that will set you apart from the crowd. You may rank up essences to rank 3 without having to learn them. However, getting from 3 to 4 requires it.

You may also buy them from the Auction House with WoW gold. That’s a convenient way to find a specific essence. Of course, you might also find someone who’s selling a maxed out essence. You can just buy it from them so you won’t have to go through the process of ranking it up yourself.

And that’s all for the topic of this article. The new features and areas are sure to be a breeze with the right essences. Remember to have fun with the Rise of Azshara update!

Enjoy World of Warcraft!

Go the Distance: OSRS Range Training Guide

OSRS RANGE TRAINING GUIDE

In OSRS, aside from the fact that bows look cool, Ranged is a good skill to grind because it grants you considerable accuracy compared to other combat-related skills. However, it can be quite difficult to level up. If you’re clueless about how you can go about going from 1 to 99, here’s an invaluable guide.

Shooting With Style

Before you go off and start shooting, you need to know that there are three styles for Ranged, namely:

  • Accurate – With this style, you receive 3 unwritten bonus levels in ranged, making your shots more accurate. This boost makes it a recommended choice for those who have only recently taken up the skill. And for even more perks, every point of damage earns you 4 EXP in Ranged and 33 EXP in hit points.
  • Rapid – This style gives you the same EXP rates for every point of damage. It also allows you to shoot more often. Be warned, however, because your shots will be less likely to hit their marks.
  • Longrange– What makes this particular style unique is that it splits EXP bonuses to Ranged and Defence, with each receiving 2 per hit. Although it has a significantly slower rate of fire than the other two, it more than makes up for it with the 3 unwritten bonus Defence levels. Aside from utility purposes, this is for players who want to shoot two birds in one stone and level up their Defence as they grind for Ranged.

Cannon Law and its Alternatives

Now we move on to the weapons. The Ranged arsenal is a wide one, but if you want to rake in the most EXP in the shortest amount of time, here are your best options:

  • OSRS Cannon – Also known as the Dwarf Multicannon, you can use this to grind Ranged from level 1 to 80 simply by shooting caged ogres in the Combat Training Camp. It’s not only cheap, but also a fast and convenient way to grind because you no longer have to move elsewhere for a long time.
  • Throwing Knives– You throw these things to rock crabs in order to gain a steady stream of EXP. While the iron throwing knives used to be popular and are still a viable way to grind, it’s been superseded by steel and mithril knives as they offer the same attack speed and better range for less OSRS gold.
  • Mithril Darts – Upon reaching level 20, you’ll unlock Mithril Darts. Aside from their great speed and coveted bonuses, they’re also quite affordable.

Definitely Not Cannon

Once you get past level 20, here are the weapons you should use if you’re not going to stick with the OSRS Cannon.

  • Bow and Crossbow – If you want to a cheap way to level up in your early twenties, you can start with the Shortbow and Bronze Arrows. Once you reach level 28, get yourself a Dorgeshuun Crossbow. It’s a cost-effective option, as the bone bolts are only worth three coins each. Plus, with crossbows, you don’t need to finish any quests just to unlock and equip them.
  • Karil’s Crossbow – at level 70, Karil’s Crossbow is a highly underrated weapon. It fires bolt racks and is more like a shortbow, which means it has a slower rate of fire but higher damage. Also, you won’t be able to equip a shield while wielding it, but the fact that it deals so much damage more than makes up for it. Besides, you’re a Ranged user anyway so you’ll be at a safe distance.
  • Chincompas and Blowpipes – after level 80, you can then move on to Ape Atoll Dungeon and shoot chincompas and red skeletons. A blowpipe is also a good alternative.

So there you have it–the styles and tools of the trade! Now that you know them, what are you waiting for? Aim to be a master marksman in Gielinor! It’s one of the best things you can be.

PATH OF EXILE GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS

If you want to know what it’s like to farm PoE orbs and PoE currency, then why not try out Path of Exile for yourself. A game with a large community that’s more than willing to help beginners like you, this dungeon-delving RPG gained an even bigger audience share since its release on the PS4. Path of Exile is inspired by Diablo 2 that focuses on getting loot, slaying hoards of enemies, and upgrading your character’s intricate skill tree. That being said, despite being a free game, Grinding Gear Games pulled out all the stops to make this game worth your time. With the game highlighting deep gameplay mechanics, our guide will explain what Path of Exile has to offer such as its class system and more along with helpful tips to get you started.

Main Attributes

There are three main attributes in Path of Exile: Dexterity, Strength, and Intelligence. By gaining 10 points in each of these abilities, you’ll gain bonuses added to the stats of your character. Here are the effects in which you can get when upgrading these attributes.

Ability Effects
Strength Your maximum HP will increase by 5 points. Melee damage to be increased by 2% per upgrade.
Dexterity Your accuracy will increase by 20 points. Evasion to be increased by 2% per upgrade.
Intelligence Your maximum mana pool will increase by 5 points. Energy shield to be increased by 2% per upgrade.

It’s important to upgrade attributes as gears in Path of Exile often have minimum requirements. Meaning that in order to equip a high-level weapon, you’ll need to have a certain amount of points to your main attributes to be able to use it.

Path of Exile Classes

There are seven playable classes for you to choose from in PoE: Duelist, Templar, Witch, Ranger, Marauder, Shadow, and Scion. These classes come equipped with different starting stats and begin at a different spot on the Passive Skill Tree.

Duelist – The Duelist class fights through the use of melee attacks. They can also summon AI minions to fight alongside them. Their attributes are Strength and Dexterity.

Templar – The Templar fires projectiles and offers a variety of lightning-based attacks. Their attributes are Intelligence and Strength.

Witch – A Witch is a female spellcaster that boasts high magic damage. Similar to mages, Witches use staffs to draw out their power. Their main attribute is Intelligence.

Ranger – The Ranger class uses a bow as their primary weapon, but can wield a sword as well as a secondary weapon. They are dexterous and nimble, making them a class that is very much agile. Their main attribute is Dexterity.

Marauder – The Marauder is a melee fighter that has great strength. A juggernaut that’s meant to be either be a defense-oriented tank or high damage dealer, their main attribute is Strength.

Shadow – The Shadow is a fighter that slices its foes through the use of short-range weapons and traps in battle. A cunning class with great speed, their main attributes is Dexterity and Intelligence.

Scion – The Scion class is not available at the beginning of the game, but instead can be permanently unlocked by rescuing her on Act 3. She can adjust to any character build, making her a flexible class. The Scion’s main attributes are Dexterity, Intelligence, and Strength.

PoE’s Passive Skill Tree: A Spider’s Web

The Passive Skill Tree of Path of Exile looks a tad bit intimidating due to its somewhat complex spider-web appearance. But don’t fret as it doesn’t take very long to figure out exactly how it works. This expanding map is what makes Path of Exile unique to its competitors.

As you go up a level, your character will also gain a skill point. You can collect up to a total of99 skill points from leveling, but you can further earn 24 more from quests. Each of these skill points is to be added to your skill tree. If you add the points to the smaller nodes on the map, it’ll offer you small bonuses such as permanent additional points to your main attributes and/or small boosts to your damage. The larger nodes offer more unique upgrades to your abilities. Basically, choosing where to put your skill points in these large nodes is what makes your skill tree stand out apart from the others.

It’s best to first plan out exactly how you’ll be allocating your points down the line since the Passive Skill Tree is so massive. Should you completely want to try a new build, you can earn “Refund Points” through certain quests to re-allocate your skill points in a different build that you may desire. Do note that you can’t buy skill points with PoE orbs or PoE currency; you’ll have to earn them the hard way!
