As you all know, this December we're launching our biggest expansion of 2018. Shortly after its release on PC, it will also launch on Xbox One and will be introduced on PlayStation 4. All of these events mean not only the return of existing players ready for new challenges, but the arrival of many new Exiles! Because of this, we've decided to gather many helpful resources for new players into one post.

First of all, we have a built-in tutorial in-game with basic information about core game mechanics and features. You will enable more tutorial pages by simply playing the game.

We are extremely grateful to have such a dedicated community who spend time creating tools and resources for the larger community to use or learn from.

We recommend checking out Engineering Eternity's Beginner's Guide Series. Once you've completed that, he also has many other useful guides to help you on your way in Wraeclast.

The Twilight Strand is another great source for newcomers.

We have many places where you can ask questions of the community including Gameplay Help and Discussion, Help and Information, our Subreddit and the community-run Path of Exile Discord.

If you're looking for an item filter, there's a default one you can access in-game but there are many wonderful community-made ones as well! We recommend checking out NeverSink's item filter!

Of course, you can also check out our community wiki for a tonne of information about most aspects of Path of Exile.

It's also worth mentioning that we have a 13-week development cycle with significant expansions released four times a year. Each expansion usually contains a new challenge league and many general improvements including new skill gems, unique items, in-game features, balance changes, reworks of existing skills and more! The release of the next expansion is scheduled for the December 7 (US/EU Time). We'll announce its details next week!

In the meantime, we post news five days a week (on New Zealand weekdays) to keep you updated on what's happening in development and in the community!

Additionally, this weekend we're holding a Super Stash Sale where we're discounting all Stash Tabs. Usually we run such sale every three weeks. Everything has been discounted, including the Fragment Tab, Map Tab, Premium Stash Tab Bundles, Premium Quad Stash Tab, Essence Tab, Divination Tab, Currency Tab and Guild Stash Tabs! Click here to view the full selection of discounted stash tabs.

The sale runs all weekend and ends at Nov 12, 2018 10:00 PM (EST) (this is displayed in your local time).

Thank you for your support! Have a great weekend and good luck in Wraeclast, Exiles!

Its about time to have at least one free premium tab dont you think GGG? So that new players can try the game and trade without having to go balls deep right from the start.

Permanent Hardcore only.
Good timing

Welcome Diablo players!
to do list: checking news five days a week.
Life isn't what you make of it, it's already been made for you.
No it's not. Game devs make the fairest free to play model on the market, have free cosmetics every league and someone has to moan for more free stuff. Why don't they give you a new computer to play it on while they are at it. Perhaps Chris can send some of the community team around to clean your house...all free of charge of course wouldn't want you having to pay for anything ever.
That's the right move,
Keep on rocking ARPG.
How many people have joined since diablo news????
