Path of Exile’s Trial of the Ancestors is coming soon

Path of Exile: Trial of the Ancestors

Path of Exile: Trial of the Ancestors is the game’s tournament arc, and it’s coming soon.

You can read more about the Trial of the Ancestors expansion below:

In this expansion, you will visit the Karui afterlife and defeat ten tribes in a series of tournaments to earn valuable new rewards.

Our August expansion introduces the Trial of the Ancestors challenge league, 16 new Atlas keystones, reworks of the Guardian and Chieftain Ascendancy classes, 14 new support gems and the return of a fan-favourite past league, The Forbidden Sanctum.

Journey to the Karui Afterlife

The fallen chieftains of each Karui tribe participate in a tournament called the Trial of the Ancestors. You will journey to their Afterlife to compete against these tribes by assembling your own team of Karui warriors. You’ll battle their chieftains in the tournament to earn valuable rewards.

Enter the Tournament

In this league, use tradeable silver coins to gain passage to the Karui Afterlife. You’ll start out with a basic team of three Karui warriors to enter the Trial of the Ancestors.

In each match, you can select which tribe to compete against, based on the reward offered. You can examine the battlefield configuration of the enemy team and strategically place your warriors to challenge theirs. Then you and your party will compete alongside your warriors to destroy the opposing team’s totems and win the match.

Assemble your Team

When you compete in tournaments, you’ll accumulate favour with each of the tribes. This can be spent on recruiting warriors and purchasing field items and equipment to power up your team. Each tribe has their own specialities and you can mix and match warriors from different tribes to build a team that embodies your strategy.

Path of Exile‘s new expansion promises unique items, endgame customization, new skills, and more.

Path of Exile: Trial of the Ancestors will launch on August 18th (PDT) for Microsoft Windows (through Steam), Mac, and on August 23rd for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
