Grinding Gears Games has revealed that they will soon bring new content to their online action RPG Path of Exile in the form of the Bestiary update. The main highlight of this update is that it will include the new Bestiary Challenge League. Here, players will need to hunt and capture nearly 300 dangerous animals that can be found across Wraeclast. The benefit of capturing all of these animals is that they can be used to create new items to help you with your quests.
The features that the Bestiary update include:
The Bestiary Challenge League: With a completely fresh economy and brand-new mechanism, the Bestiary Challenge League is perfect for existing, returning, and brand new players to experience the award-winning gameplay Path of Exile has to offer.
Capture Dangerous Beasts: Tracing the Wraeclast's most dangerous animals, weakening them, and capturing them to make them be your own. There are about 250 regular beasts and 40 legendary beasts to capture.
Complete your Bestiary: When you capture beasts from across Wraeclast, they are marked in your Bestiary, a permanent record of your progress through this league.
Populate your Menagerie: Visit and observe the beasts you captured whenever you want, then use them to speed up your Beastcrafting.
Beastcrafting: Perform the ritual of Sacrifice by Combat at the Blood Altar to create and enhance potent items. There are dozens of mighty recipes that need to sacrifice the different combinations of beasts that you have collected.
New End-Game Foes: Capturing and crafting with the right set of beasts may grant you entrance to difficult spirit boss encounters with powerful unique item rewards.
Bestiary Sets: The Bestiary League contains four new sets of items based on the powerful spirit beasts. Mix and match them with other items and find potent new builds.
The Story Continues: High-level players will be able to challenge The Elder and The Shaper at the same time, deep in the Atlas of Worlds - the toughest boss encounter in Path of Exile yet!
New Unique Items: Harness the power of 29 new Unique Items and complete new Prophecies to turn your item into one of 30 new Fated Unique Items.
New Gems: Discover and build about three new gems, including the new skill Spectral Shield Throw and the new support gem Summon Phantasm on Kill.
Ascendancy Class Revamp: Explore myriad new build options with each of our extensively re-balanced Ascendancy Classes.
And much more: We have also added a new quest to Act Ten and have made many other minor changes, including ongoing performance improvements.
