In the weekend family get-together of the fantasy RPGs, Uncle Diablo is hanging around, talking to his niece Torchlight about her new tattoos. She’s just asked where Path Of Exile is. “He’s suffering from stress and couldn’t make it”, said Uncy D.

Adam enjoyed his time with the plentiful loot in the free-to-play ARPG, even if he felt that the social elements were a bit overwhelming. But that’s Adam: he thinks “Welcome” mats are a bit forward.
All you need to do is follow these instructions and you’re guaranteed entry to the party. Here. Have a look if you want to make doubly sure.
