Path of Exile’s Patch 2.5 has officially been announced for December 2. As always, Patch 2.5 includes two new challenge leagues.
These challenge leagues will feature Breaches which are tears in the fabric of reality between the realm of Wraeclast and alternate realms. As a result, your exile will have to enter these Breaches and hold off monsters to reap incredible rewards. These Breaches contain both monsters as well as new bosses known as Breachlords. The more damage you deal to these Breachlords, the more treasure they will drop while escaping. One of the many new items found in Breaches are splinters. One hundred splinters can be combined to create a Breachstone, which subsequently can be used to enter a Breachlord’s domain, where they can be killed. Some of the many items that Breaches contain can be found here.
Additionally, GGG promises to include new golem unique jewels, channeling support gems, and a new leveling system for the Forsaken Masters.
