Path of Exile 2 is set to introduce 19 brand new ascendancy classes to the fray, in addition to the original 19 found in the first game.
Several of these new ascendancy classes were shown off at ExileCon, and included the Ranger, Tactician and Beastmaster classes alongside teases for the Atmost, Marauder and Reaver.
The Tactician was one of the more intriguing classes showcased, having access to a whole range of warfare abilities, including Siege Breaker, which supercharges placed ballista totems and Siege Warfare, that bolts enemies down with a snare.
The other class given the spotlight, the Beastmaster, looked equally impressive, and included a Werecat form skill known as Born To Be Wild. This transformation allows the Beastmaster to supercharge their attacks while in beast form.
The Atmost class was teased as a weather-manipulating class, while both the Marauder and Reaver ascendancy classes appeared to be heavy melee-based.
These classes are designed to create a whole new experience in Path of Exile 2 for new and returning players, as well as add to the depth and complexity of the game.
Path of Exile is getting a brand new seven act story campaign to bring it into a new era. Officially dubbed Path of Exile 2, the story is set after the fall of Kitava, the God of Corruption.Read more
