Path of Exile : Forsaken Masters launches on August 20th and with it comes a horde of new additions including but not limited to: a customizable hideout (Guild Hall) for you and the Masters, the ability to add modifications to items as well as change sockets directly rather than relying on the cruel mistress RNG. Curses are getting a complete rework and new skills and items will be added (16 items in total with some being Rampage and Beyond challenge league exclusives). Along with these items come new Skill Gems such as: Tornado Shot (fires a piercing arrow and explodes in all directions on impact), Herald of Ice / Ash (reserves part of your Mana pool for elemental bonuses), a new curse Poacher’s Mark, and Generosity which increases your aura for your team but you lose the buff.

Each of the Masters specializes in crafting particular items so you will want to level them all. This can be done by performing missions for each of them. Not only do they allow you to craft more powerful gear, but they can also sell you it. The Masters will be vendors and will even sell build defining magical items at higher levels.

To accompany these changes the Passive Skill Tree is also seeing an update as are most of the main game bosses to maintain balance while still remaining as difficult and exciting as the player has come to expect.

You can find the full announcement from Grinding Gear Games here. Patch Notes will arrive just before release.

Update: You can also check out the first teaser trailer from Gamespot of Elreon, one of the Forsaken Masters, below.
