With a continuously growing number of Path of Exile players, many are quickly drawn into the vast realm of cosmetics. The microtransaction sublayer can easily be called a wholely separate game inside of PoE, in its own right. And as such, after their first few acts – many people start to ponder – “Are path of exile free cosmetics a thing?”
Thankfully, the answer is – YES!
So, how do you go about them? Effectively, in the current state of the game, there are two ways that a player could get free cosmetic items in Path of Exile.
Leagues, PVP Events, And Race Rewards
Whether you have the skill or gall to participate in the frequently occurring flurry of races that go on throughout each league – completing the league challenge set will offer a few cosmetics to the players who are dedicated enough to simply grind it out.
On the other hand, competing in a PVP event (player vs. player) and coming out on top will allow you to get your hands on the sought-after Talisman of the Victor.
However, while the first two are relatively linear – the regularly occurring races come with a slightly wider pool of rewards. Winners will be given one of the items from the Demigod Set in Path of Exile, which contains an item for every equipment slot on your character sheet.
While neither the Demigod Set nor the Talisman of the Victor are cosmetic items – they are still fantastic rewards to get your hands on, should you be skilled enough.
But hey – if you’re not all too confident in your abilities to power-level or verse other players in the arena – just stick to ticking off the league challenges for some sweet guaranteed and totally free cosmetic loot.
Twitch Prime Collaboration
Grinding Gear Games partnered up with Twitch to give Path of Exile a leg up on the streaming platform and give viewers some incentive to participate in the game’s astounding growth.
This comes in the form of three absolutely free cosmetic items that you get if you link up your Prime-enabled Twitch account with your Path of Exile account.
