By Nancy G2024-03-22

"Cold flesh, dirt, maggots, and ghosts. Our job is to keep them where they belong. It's your first night, so you'll need this—a ghostly lantern for ghastly tinkering. You'll learn to peer into the souls of the dead. You'll learn how to twist them. Meet me in the Necropolis. You can pilfer shiny things from a corpse. But you can pilfer glorious things from a soul. I need a grave digger. The job's hard, but the pay's good. What do you say?"


Path of Exile 3.24: Necropolis introduces a new challenge league that promises to immerse players in the haunting remnants of the Eternal Empire. The Necropolis League is set to launch on March 29th, 2024, and brings a host of new content, gameplay mechanics, and quality-of-life improvements.

These spirits have started to haunt the monsters of Wraeclast, releasing their ancient fury and sorrow onto the world.


Key Features of Necropolis League
