Path of Exile | How to get Oni-Goroshi Charan’s Sword

Oni-Goroshi.png

Oni-Goroshi is an all-new Unique that was introduced in version 3.1.1c of Path of Exile and replaced The Goddess Unleashed unique. There are currently only two ways of obtaining this unique weapon:

  • Killing Hillock.
  • Obtaining 27 Rebirth divination cards.

The catch for killing Hillock is that it requires that your character to be Level 7 but it’s very difficult to level up to 7 without entering Town because you can only get experience from killing enemies at the strand. A method to getting to Level 7 is to make 4-5 characters and have them clear the strand and keep switching characters so that the zone is able to reset for each character. Hillock will drop the sword if he’s glowing green meaning that he is currently using the sword.

As for the divination cards, it will only drop in Story excluding some areas, so these divination will not naturally drop in Maps.

Path Of Exile | Shaped Amulets Prefixes & Suffixes

Path Of Exile‘s newest expansion: War for the Atlas has added in Shaped and Elder items. These are special items that add new and exclusive mods to pre-existing items that can only drop from maps that are influenced from Shaper.

Path Of Exile | Twitch Drops

TwitchDropsRewards.jpg

Path Of Exile is the 4th game after Warframe to get Twitch Drops which rewards players with game loot for watching Path of Exile streams. Players that watch Path of Exile streams will have a 1% to receive one of the helmet skins every 5 minutes. Roughly a helmet skin will be rewarded after 500.

Each Helmet Skin has it’s own rarity, so there will be two RNG elements, one for a helmet to be reward and one to determine the helmet skin. But you can only receive one helmet skin.

  • You can only win one helmet skin per account.
  • Your chances of receiving a prize do not increase by having multiple streams open simultaneously.
  • If you’re a streamer, all you need to do to include your viewers in Twitch Drops is pick Path of Exile as your game while streaming on Twitch and you’ll automatically be included.
  • Twitch Drops will run from the time of this post until Monday December 18th (PST).
  • This promotion is limited to PC accounts only.
  • You’ll receive a PM on the website to notify you when you’ve won.

 

Path Of Exile | Abyss Challenge League

 

Path Of Exile‘s upcoming Expansion, War for the Atlas will released with a new Challenge League, Abyss.

In Abyss League, players will wander upon cracks in the terrain which will have abyss monster spawn out of them. Follow the cracks and you’ll find a massive chasm that have numerous amount of dangerous monster spawn out of it.

Once you defeat these monsters, the Abyss continues to propagate, creating more chasms. Take too long, and the Abyss will seal shut, but if you’re quick and deadly enough, a chest filled with valuable rewards will emerge from below.

Players will also have a chance of gaining access to the Abyssal Depths at higher levels. Abyssal Depths contain much more monsters than the chasm spawns and can potentially have a Lich within it which is the only way of obtaining the exclusive Abyss Uniques.

Abyss Jewels is a new type of Jewel that drop only from Abyss monsters or from the Abyss chest. They can only be socked into Abyss-sockets which only abyss items have. They seem to take over a Gem socket.

As always each Challenge League has 40 new challenges, every time 12 challenges are completed players will receive a cosmetic reward. The cosmetics rewards in order are: Abyssal Helmet Skin, Abyss Wings and Abyss Portal Effect. After the 19th challenge, every consecutive 3rd challenge done will reward a Totem Pole decoration for your hideout.

Path of Exile | War for the Atlas

Path Of Exile‘s newest expansion, War for the Atlas has been revealed. The expansion will launch December 8th, 2017. Alongside War for the Atlas, is the Abyss challenge league which will have more information revealed later.

PoE_WarForTheAtlas.jpg

In War for the Atlas, the Shaper‘s control of the Atlas of Worlds is being contested by The Elder. The Atlas of Worlds has been reforged and throughout the Atlas, there will be certain region of the map controlled by either the Elder or the Shape. Depending on who control each region, there will be different mechanics within the map.

Just like the Shaper, the Elder will also have this own Guardians. A total of 32 new maps will be added in this expansion. While exploring the new Atlas of Worlds, you may encounter Shaped or Elder items which correspond to the Map’s control. These items have powerful properties that don’t normally drop or can be crafted.

As with every other expansion, there will be new gems and new unique items. New Supporter packs are also available based on this newest expansion.

Path Of Exile – What Maps to Shape

When you reach endgame in Path Of Exile, you will enter the map system and will eventually wander upon a Shaper’s Orb when you complete the bonus objective on certain maps throughout the atlas. The Shaper Orb will upgrade an unlocked map into a +5 tier version of itself when you use it on a map on your atlas like a currency item. The normal version of the map will no longer drop and will be replaced with the shape version of it. Usually every league has map changes causing the ideal map to shape to change. Here are my recommendation for what maps should be shaped.

Remember that these are only recommendation and are based on my personal preference. The map you shape should be based on your personal preference and build.
