In Path of Exile, whatever players do, most of the gameplay is all about the feeling of reward, from the usual work to combat culmination of all previous efforts. Although the game does well enough for the most part about this, there are certain parts could use some work. One of those parts is the leagues, which have a glaring flaw before Ascendancy comes about.
While there is much fun to have in the leagues, it can be said that the only time you'd expect to get reward for playing something like a Hardcore league is the time you've reached the endgame, with a high leveled character decked out in Path of Exile Items and following a particular build to show efforts. In addition, in the middle of that pursuit, there isn't much else other than the journey itself and not much else.
It can be said that it's all about the journey and not just the destination, there should be a feeling of reward during proceedings and not the end of it. There's a reason why some players quit in the middle of their progress in the game. It's not because of the game fun, but those players have gotten bored at that point and want to go on to do other things. That's not really the game's fault, but they can be encouraged to take their characters further. During this proceedings, players need certain PoE Currency.
It seems that there are lots of things to keep players in the game at lower levels in Ascendancy. Perandus is a good example, as it's possible for players to get a decent amount of poe exalted orbs despite not getting good uniques from him. Even when RNG is not on your side, you're not getting scammed. Also, there are low level unique PoE Items that aren't gated behind outrageous prices such as chaos orb, which means that anyone can get them.
The Perandus league is getting so much positive feedback and it's possible that more like it can pop up in the future. Being able to save up Perandus Coins or get lucky with a good unique makes for a league that gives players earlier in the game. It is handy to have a good low level unique or two to aid leveling, and the potential of a big payday isn't far from reality with poe items like Maligaro's Virtuosity. It has made success where leagues like Talisman have somewhat failed.
It looks like Grinding Gear Games is taking the game towards a positive direction after all. As more and more people get to play Ascendancy and the Perandus league, the brighter future seems for the game this year. That’s all for it, if you would like to read more poe news, please check MmoGah.
