One of the coolest things that GGG does because of its players is to provide them with metric tons of approaches to customize their characters. A number of them come in the kind of microtransactions and, although that's become a dirty word in some circles, it is not in Path of Exile. Most are easily affordable and all are totally optional.
This week, a pair of cool new microtransactions arrived in the kind of Phantasmal Whirling Blades that replaces the Whirling Blades effect and a brand new visual overlay for its Arcane Portal. The former provides the more emo audience with a gloomy and dark pair of blades turning through the air, while the latter provides a new trendy spin on portals. Watch both in activity in the videos below.
Among the most significant items that GGG does would be to tap into its theorycrafting community. One way they've consistently achieved this is via the Build of the Week program that enables content creators to give interesting and unusual builds into the community.
This weeks construct stems from Tarpan and is called the Dancing Due Juggernaut. " [W]e're showcasing tarpan's construct to get a Juggernaut that doesn't do much killing itself, but instead requires a more supportive role for the two minions it manifests. It does this by using the fated version of this Dancing Dervish unique sword, the Dancing Duo."
