Path of Exile Character Skill Overview
Rate this post  
In Path of Exile, the player has been exiled from their homeland to the corrupted and deeply hostile continent of Wraeclast. Alone, or with other exiles, they must develop their skills and discover powerful magical artifacts in order to survive the challenges of a cutthroat post-apocalyptic fantasy world.

Skills in Path of Exile take the form of gems, which you socket into items. The active skills operate on an entirely different mechanic, which is actually more similar to the Materia system in Final Fantasy VII. Skills are loot. There are two basic types of skill gems in Path of Exile: active skill gems, and support gems. Active skill gems represent skills you actively use (Fireball, for example). Once a player has a skill gem, it can be inserted into the appropriately colored socket (red, green, or blue) in a piece of gear. When a player has a piece of gear with a skill gem in it equipped, the player can then use that skill.

Support gems can be socketed into a linked socket with an active skill gem, to provide a modification of that active skill gem (For example, increasing the damage or the size of your fireball). Support gems add an extra effect onto a skill gem. For example, it is possible to link together a Melee Splash support gem onto a single-target melee skill, and suddenly it is an area of effect attack. It is also possible to attach a spell skill gem to the Remote Mine support gem and create a Remote Mine that can be detonated to use whatever spell you attacked the support gem to. Support gems must be linked to a skill gem through gear, however. In other words, the sockets in the gear must be the appropriate colors and be connected together in order to create certain combinations.

Active skill gems and support gems are easily visually distinguishable from each other in your inventory. A skill gem must be socketed into an equipped item in order to use that skill.

The skill tree represents all passive skills in the game. They're shown as nodes of various types and sizes. There are three types of these nodes: Cluster nodes, Pathway nodes and Keystones nodes. All nodes are connected to a certain attribute so when you choose the strengths of your character, you should unlock only the ones we need. This strategy ensures an effective development based on abilities. When you create your character, you should take a closer look at all the tree and decide which big nodes you want to unlock, then which of the small ones are connected to these skills and finally plan a development path through the pathway nodes. 

Combining both the passive skill tree and the gem system allows some of the strangest and unique builds ever encountered in the genre. Many passive skills are about using specific types of weapons. So if your inventory consists of bow and arrows, you should increase your accuracy and damage dealt with bow.
