We all know that PoE Ultimatum is the most recent expansion of Path of Exile, only a couple of days away from its launch on PC on April 16, 2021. However, the issue is, before the launch, the studio Grinding Gear Games team outlined some of the balance changes they wanted to present. Right now, PoE currency would be able to play a more effective role.

The development team pointed that they hope to rebalance the game mechanics which is related to the new blood-themed skills and Vaal skills. They also aim to reduce the power of certain mechanisms that could occupy the whole game room in the meta-game, and relative to the team's vision, they are OP. The Echoes Of The Atlas passive tree is also changing now. The Blood Magic Support gems are right now two separate gems. There are some new passive clusters on the passive skill tree specifically for physical damage. You can buy Path of Exile currency to build them. Corrupted blood is not, at this point considered bleeding damage.

Some other changes in Path of Exile include Blade Storm, which right now increases the multiplier for bleeding damage in the bloodline state. The expense of skills has also undergone some changes. Just like the team said: "Skills right now could specify the resources they use. Therefore, statistics could specify whether they will influence all costs/holds or a specific combination. Let me give you a for instance, the eminent decree of justice among the Templars presently reduces skills Mana consumption, not knowing that the brilliance of fatigue would affect all skill costs."

In addition to Vaal's skills in acquiring a balanced pass, Echoes Of The Atlas Passives has also gone through some certain changes. Some of the more general balance changes include the trembling of the off-hand, the body armor of the physical explosion, the harvest of monster life, black magic, sextile poisoning, fossil and monster lacerations, Echoes Of The Atlas mission maintenance, the number and rarity of sustainable items.

In the recent news, Path of Exile 2 got a quite lengthy game video trailer. The video shows bows and spears, and frankly, they look quite great. Right now is the start of Ultimatum's launch, and it is also the best and ideal opportunity for you to purchase Path of Exile Items.
