Event Description

Path of Exile players are undoubtedly aware about the game’s ongoing problems with energy shields and life. At the moment, energy shield builds are objectively a much better choice — it’s more effective and effective when compared to a life skill build in just about every way. With energy shield, the opportunity for stacking effects is a lot higher, it regenerates with Vaal Pact, and, on the whole, energy shield has better build options overall. PoE is created around one-hit kills and fast regeneration, game currently is designed around one hit kills and fast regeneration, the pool of own life is highly relevant.

They aren’t even remotely close either. A typical life build, with good end gear, provides you with between 5.5k and 6k life. If you placed on a Kaom’s, it is possible to break 7-8k, according to the build. Energy shield, alternatively, provides 8k — and that’s provided that you’re being conservative. With quality gear, you'll be able to easily break 12k energy shield without losing any stats. That’s also enabling you to wear an appearance with slots into it, unlike Kaom’s. The fact that life builds offer armor isn’t even remotely good enough to offset each of the negatives. This has been a tremendous problem in character building over the past year or so. With Path of Exile’s highly anticipated 3.0 release, massive changes are coming.

Grinding Gear Games made among the more obvious changes, lowering energy shield numbers en masse. Energy shield on high-end items, Regalias specifically, were slashed by approximately 30%. Now a Regalia which had 750 shield can have 550. A Shavronne’s with 450 shield will have 350. This is a pretty massive nerf alone. Without any other changes, which means a typical top end build will probably be at 8-9k energy shield rather than 12k. But wait, there’s more! They also eliminated the crafting that allowed for optimum percentage energy shield on rings. This crafting went the many way as much as a 20% bonus. Losing 40% maximum energy shield is a large loss, considering most quality builds have between 200% and 250% overall. Now we’ve definitely were put energy shield builds inside 8k range, even at
