Path of Building is a free, open-source tool from Github used for smoothly and efficiently developing your Path of Exile character. It then lets you share your build and skill tree setups for cooperation in future character building.
Complex yet useful
Planning your character builds in Path of Exile is complicated with a complex build tree. With this programme, you can do it more quickly and efficiently and share the setup you created.
The central portion of Path of Building includes several planners - one for the skill tree and others for skill gems and items. You'll also find a stat calculator, which shows you how well you did your planning stage.
In general, you can’t share stats and setups with other players. Linking builds becomes more comfortable with specific data on every item and statistics on the damage and HP.
Once you set up a combo, you'll be able to tweak the stats in real-time with a simple slider. The auto-updating statistics make it much easier to gauge which gear is necessary, and which you can discard.
You can share different versions of your tree with variants of your desired build, too, instead of creating many separate ones.
The UI may seem intimidating for first-time users, but it gets intuitive quite quickly. The largest part consists of your passive skill tree, where you can save blueprints for future characters.
Other options consist of tabs that let you import and export builds through codes, notes, skills, items, and calculations. You can also visit the Configuration tab to set effects, choose map modifiers, and check out your setup in different versions of the game.
It's best that beginners start with importing an existing build to learn the ropes. Once you have the skills, you can start from scratch later.
A fantastic tool
Path of Building greatly facilitates importing your characters and building as you play. It is a super-clever utility for players, and just like Path of Crafting and Path of Exile Cheat Sheet, it becomes invaluable with use. It’s a shame that the programme is only for players on Windows PCs.
