Path of Exile – New Awakening Skills

Path of Exile : Awakening will consist of at the moment 8 announced new skill gems.


A new type of skill gem introduced is the Golem Skill Gems which gives Summoners more options but only one Golem can be summoned at once.


 sdasdasdwassasdSummon Flame GOlem Golem, Spell, Minion, Fire

Summons a Flame golem that grants you increased Damage while active. The Flame Golem can use a fire spray, a wave of fire damage, and an explosive arcing projectile.

  • 30% Increased Minion Maximum Life
  • Golems Grant 15% Increased Damage

A seething, crackling companion, the Flame Golem best serves a player who likes to fight in the thick of battle. Rather than joining his master on the front lines, this incarnation prefers to keep its distance, bombarding foes from afar with a powerful mortar attack. When engaged up close, the Flame Golem buffets enemies with a periodic wave of scorching fire. It can also expel a gout of steady flames when its other abilities are on cooldown. The Golem grants its master a global buff to all damage dealt.

  • 30% Increased Minion Maximum Life
  • Golems Grant 20% Increased Critical Strike Chance
  • Golem Grant 20% Increased Accuracy

A glistening, frigid companion, the Ice Golem best serves agile characters with high mobility. It is a blur on the battlefield, whirling through packs of enemies, charging to and fro. It periodically transforms itself into an icy turret, firing a barrage of serrated rime. The Ice Golem is the most damaging of the trio, striking down foes with a powerful melee attack when engaged up close. It grants both increased accuracy and a substantial global critical strike chance buff to its master.

  • 30% Increased Minion Maximum Life
  • Golems grant 3% additional Physical Damage Reduction

A hulking, armored companion, the Chaos Golem best serves characters who value survivability over offense. The Golem is robust and fortified, covered in a carapace of hardened crystal. These crystals contain a powerful, chaotic energy that periodically envelops the incarnation, damaging everything nearby. It can also focus this energy into a beam, blasting a line of advancing foes. In close quarters, the Chaos Golem uses its bulk to pummel enemies. It grants physical damage reduction to its master.


The other new type of Gems are the War Cry Skill Gems.

Performs a Warcry, granting increased damage and mana regeneration to you and your allies. The damage increase is increased by surrounding enemies. Taunts all nearby enemies to attack the user. Shares a cooldown with other Warcry skills.

  • 6.00s Base Duration
  • 140% Increased Damage/100 enemies
  • 2 Mana regen/s
  • 10% Increased Damage

Rallying Cry is a perfect new tool for a character who loves the frontlines of combat. When uttered, the skill substantially boosts the damage and mana regeneration of the player and all nearby allies. The size of this buff is based on the number of adjacent enemies. All monsters who hear the Rallying Cry immediately turn to attack the player who used it.


595afsdfasfaAbyssal CRY WARCRY, AOE, DURATION, Chaos

Performs a Warcry, slowing nearby enemies and causing them to explode when killed. The slowing effect is increased by surrounding enemies. Taunts all nearby enemies to attack the user. Shares a cooldown with other warcry skills.

  • 6.0s Base Duration
  • 20% Reduced Movement Speed
  • 0.6% Reduced Movement Speed per Nearby Enemy
  • Explosion deal Chaos Damage = 8% of Monster’s Maximum Health.

Abyssal Cry is an ideal skill to use when you’re surrounded and outnumbered. It blasts outward in a shimmering wave, assaulting your enemy’s senses and driving them mad. Affected monsters are slowed in direct proportion to their numbers. A deep malice temporarily takes hold in their bones, causing them to detonate violently if they’re slain. Any afflicted by the Abyssal Cry lose all sense, mindlessly pursuing the player who uttered it.


The only Melee Attack gem revealed at the moment is Vigilant Strike.


19g5sdfxvcxVigilant Strike Attack, Melee, Duration

Attacks the enemy with a powerful melee strike. You gain the fortify buff, granting damage reduction. The cooldown can be bypassed by expending an endurance charge. Requires a Melee Weapon

  • 165% of Base Damage
  • Can’t be Evaded
  • 100% chance to Fortify on Melee Hit

Vigilant Strike is an unerring melee attack, dealing substantial single target damage with a huge defensive benefit. Whenever a player lands a blow with Vigilant Strike, they gain a brief boost to damage reduction called Fortify. Fortify reduces most incoming damage by 25%, regardless of type or origin. Damage over time effects are unaffected by Fortify.


There are 2 new support gems revealed at the moment.

9sa5dasdasfzFortify Attack, Support, Melee

The Fortify Support Gem grants the benefits of the fortify buff without commitment to a specific melee skill. Any melee skill supported by Fortify gains a modest boost to damage and grants the Fortify buff whenever it hits. The Fortify buff does not stack, but refreshes to four seconds each time it’s applied.

  • 25% Increased Melee Physical Damage
  • 100% chance to Fortify on Melee Hit
zzzzdf95asdasBloodlust Attack, Support, Melee

Lay waste to your foes and delight in their gushing wounds. With the Bloodlust Support Gem, characters deal massive extra damage to anything already suffering a bleed effect. The catch with this Support Gem is that you cannot apply a bleed directly with the supported skill, so clever interweaving of abilities is necessary. Bloodlust shines in a party situation, where your allies are also causing enemies to bleed.

  • Cannot cause Bleeding
  • 40% more Physical Damage against Bleeding Enemies
