Bug fixed
November 17, 2013 - 5:54PM CST

As a result of a new change made from yesterday, it was impossible to submit new builds. I sincerely apologize for the frustration this likely caused a lot of you. It should be fixed now.

More site updates.
November 16, 2013 - 8:44PM CST

Thanks to everyone who sent in their suggestions. Most of them have been implemented, while others will come tomorrow. Here's a list of today's changes:

New features have been added.
November 15, 2013 - 4:00PM CST

We are now on a dedicated server!
November 15, 2013 - 1:20PM CST

We have moved Path of Exile Builds to a dedicated server. This means that the surprise downtimes should go away (hopefully) and the site should load much faster and more consistently.

In addition, I am working on some great new features which should be finished by the end of the day. I will also add the new gems to the database today. Thank for your your patience!

More downtime.
November 12, 2013 - 7:12PM EST

We had a little more downtime this afternoon due to, once again, a huge burst of traffic. In response to these recent issues, I have decided to move Path of Exile Builds to a dedicated server. The move should take place within the next 24 hours, and the downtime will be minimal. Thanks for your patience - and look forward to a much faster website in the coming days!

Brief downtime.
November 7, 2013 - 10:03PM EST

Apparently we had enough traffic tonight to simulate that of a DDoS attack, so the host shut us down and forced me to finally optimize the site. Everything should be back up and stable now. I apologize for the downtime.

Everything is up-to-date!
October 26, 2013 - 5:06PM EST

The last of the necessary changes have been made to make this website Path of Exile 1.0.0 compatible! All of the new flasks, skills, and other changes have been implemented. As usual, let me know if you have any suggestions or feature requests, or if you run into any bugs. Have fun!

Site Updated Notes
October 23, 2013 - 11:59AM EST

The following changes have been made to the site. These notes will be updated throughout the day, as we do not yet have access to the new flask images, so these have not been implemented yet.

Patch 1.0.0 is coming!
October 22, 2013 - 9:48AM EST

Tomorrow, Path of Exile v1.0.0 will be released. Rest assured, Path of Exile Builds will support all of the new gems, changes, and the new Scion class that come with this update. Please be patient while we update the site over the next few days. I will post full site release notes when the changes are complete. In the meantime, if you have any particular features you'd like to see implemented, feel free to contact me.

Updated for patch 0.11.4.
August 20, 2013 - 8:55PM EST

The new skill, Reave, has been added to the database. You can now use it in your builds. Enjoy the new patch!

And we're back.
August 6, 2013 - 4:27PM EST

Thanks to a recent post on reddit, I have decided to update the site to be compatible with the latest Path of Exile patch. Here is what has been changed so far:

I also deleted all the spam comments and banned the IP addresses of all the spammers. I will continue to keep a close eye on the spam and take measures to prevent it. In addition, new features will be added in the coming days.

Note that a lot of the builds on this site are now outdated. The only way this site will work is if people like YOU add your new builds! The rating system works in such a way that the best builds will be most visible, so it is my hope that we can get some really awesome builds up toward the top for everyone to enjoy.

Please let me know if you run into any bugs with the new features. I look forward to the revival of this website! Thanks for all your support.

New gems added to the database for recent Path of Exile patches.
April 24, 2013 - 2:24PM EST

Searing Bond, Totem and Minion Elemental Resistances, and Increased Burning Damage have been added to the database. I apologize for the delay.

New support gems for Path of Exile patch 0.10.5 have been added!
April 7, 2013 - 11:11PM EST

Today, a new major Patch of Exile patch was released which includes three new support gems. We have added these new gems to the database and you can freely use them in your builds on this website. Below is a list of the new gems and their descriptions:

Multistrike: Causes you to attack quickly three times with a melee attack. New targets are selected for subsequent attacks if available.

Melee Splash: Adds an area of effect splash radius to a single target melee attack.

Power Charge on Critical: Critical strikes with the supported skill have a chance of granting you a Power Charge.

What do you think about the new patch? Let us know on our forums!

We have an all-new design!
April 2, 2013 - 10:35AM EST

We are proud to announce that Path of Exile Builds has been completely redesigned. The site now has a much cleaner appearance, and many functions have been streamlined to be easier to use than ever before. In addition, the forum has been re-opened to the public.

Do you like the new design? Have any suggestions? Tell us about it on our forums!

New design is coming soon.
March 30, 2013 - 4:17PM EST

Due to popular request, we are working on an all-new design/layout for the site. It should be done in a week or less. After that, we'll begin adding new features.

In addition, the forum was down for the last few days while we polished it up and fixed some bugs. Everything is up now. Enjoy!

Path of Exile patch 0.10.4 has been released.
March 19, 2013 - 9:14PM EST

With the new Path of Exile patch, Arctic Armour has been added as the newest skill. Here's exactly what it does:

Summons an icy shield that protects against physical and fire damage. It drains your mana while active and at a faster rate while you are moving. When you have no mana left, the skill turns off. While active, it leaves a trail of ground ice which lasts for a short duration.

We have added this new skill to the database so you can use it in your builds on this website.

We now have a forum!
March 17, 2013 - 12:00PM EST

We have added a new forum that integrates directly with the website. If you are already a member of Path of Exile Builds, you can start posting immediately!

Path of Exile Builds is released!
March 14, 2013 - 1:29PM EST

After weeks of effort, Path of Exile Builds is finally released to provide you with the ultimate place to create, share, and view builds. We are dedicated to making this website your one-stop location for Path of Exile builds.

Although we have thoroughly tested the site for bugs, it is possible we overlooked something along the way. If you run into any problems, or simply have a suggestion to make, please feel free to contact us!

To celebrate the launch of Path of Exile Builds, we have created three contests on our Contests & Events page.
