Path of Exile's next major update is called "Bestiary," with a new Bestiary Challenge League set to introduce over 250 beasts to the world. Players are introduced to new character named Reinhardt, who tasks them with hunting down these dangerous creatures. Like certain other monster-capturing games, the idea is to find these beasts, wear them down, and ultimately capture them by summoning Reinhardt to transport it to a new Menagerie area. As players capture new creatures, they'll keep track of their progress through their Bestiary catalog, marking down any common and any of the game's 40 legendary beasts that they manage to capture. They won't be hard to find, either. Beasts will show up at about one out of every four or five areas the player explores over the course of the game.
The heart of the Bestiary expansion is the record book. It’s a collection of monsters, crafting recipes and other goals for late game players to accomplish and collect. However, the goal isn’t to kill the monsters and collect their materials like you would do in a game like Monster Hunter. Instead you are tasked with capturing a certain amount of them to fulfill quest objectives and then fight them all at once in order to craft powerful new gear and augmentations. You’ll be given access to an area known as the menagerie. Think of it as your own personal zoo, where you can see all of the monsters you currently have captured in one easy to access area. You can also see what monsters you have collected in your bestiary as well.
We are back in Wraeclast, the land of damned, dangerous monsters, but this time with the ability to weaken, stun, and then capture the creatures you come across – some 250 regular beasts, and 40 legendaries. Your progress is marked in the titular Bestiary, a lavishly illustrated book that now forms part of Path of Exile’s interface. By the way, you can buy cheap POE Currency Trading from, where you can enjoy a 3% discount by using the code “5MMO”.
Returning players can also expect some changes to the Atlas as well. As one of the more dense, lengthier forms of content in the game, veterans were able to clear through much of the Atlas map's content--which offered access to smaller encounters that yielded high-rewards. But in the upcoming update, you'll be able to return to previous completed nodes on the map and replay them on a higher difficulty--leading to new items and monsters to fight. One boss in particular is the Uber-Elder, who is so difficult, Wilson claims that the developers themselves have yet to beat it.
For endgame players, Bestiary has four new spirit animal bosses that can be captured and used for crafting. These especially tough encounters offer up more than just more crafting options, however, but also Path of Exile's first-ever gear sets. Unlike Diablo 3, Path of Exile never had gear that unlocked special bonuses when wearing more than one piece of a particular set. These new spirit animal sets change that, but with a special Path of Exile twist.
