Path of Exile introduces new Zenith microtransactions, teases upcoming Legion changes
As is quickly becoming routine, but in a good way, for Path of Exile fans, Grinding Gear Games has introduced another new suite of cosmetic microtransactions for players to customize their look with. The two new additions follow the wispy Illusionist set and are part of the new Zenith set. In contrast to the Illusionist set, Zenith is much more dark and foreboding, trading in soft glowing hues for metallic sheens and layers of armour.
There’s the Zenith Shield which changes the standard appearance of any shield your character wields to a metallic shield, adorned with white plates. There’s also the Zenith Weapon, which changes melee weapons into a pearly greatsword complete with an intricate hilt. This can be applied to any equipped sword, axe, mace or staff. Check both new MTX effects out in the preview videos down below.
And not content with just offering some spiffy new threads for POE players to ogle over, Grinding Gear Games has also released their plans for the next phase of development within Legion League.
