Path of Exile Build of the Week Giveaway

Great skulls of fire!

If you like Path of Exile as much as we do (we named it 2013's PC Game of the Year), you might already be familiar with developer Grinding Gear Games' "Build of the Week" video series. In it, Chris Wilson and other members of the team highlight favorite character builds that have been submitted by members of the Path of Exile community. These builds are not only effective but, as videos like the one below demonstrate, fun to play. This week's build, titled Echoed Raging Spirits, surrounds you with flaming skulls and animated weapons.

To celebrate this week's Build of the Week season finale, we've teamed up with Grinding Gear Games to give you a shot at winning an in-game item that perfectly complements the featured build. The Infernal Skull helmet skin does exactly what you think it does, and it looks great. Post a comment below to stand a chance of winning one.

This Friday, July 18, we'll pick the 50 best comments and those of you who posted them will receive a code redeemable for an Infernal Skull in your GameSpot inbox. Good luck!

I don't like the fact that you can't respec your character :-/

I don't have the time to reroll..

Well, the skull looks really cool and all, but I don't think I'll get it. Anyways, I started playing PoE since open beta and I can tell that it is the most amazing loot focused ARPG of all time. I always liked this type of games, but PoE has the best replayability ever. Although the possibilities aren't endless, GGG are adding new content faster than I can try the builds and setups. I'm very happy for their success and PoE's increasing popularity. Keep it up guys!

Yes, tis I, your old friend Captain Sigmund Fairgreaves, wave tamer and pirate bane .... oh, of course, you don't recognise me ....... a little accident with a decanter spiritus and a rather unstable plum! I fear it will be a long road to recovery but, to begin,  I need some new skin and ......... well - what a serendipitous encounter - you with some skins to give away and me in such dire need.  Of course you'll choose me - we go back a long way and I'm so much more deserving than these other young bucks. And after all, we don't really want to consider the ALTERNATIVE methods of skin procurement now, do we? Let's just say that if you don't choose me there may be some rather GRAVE consequences for you and your GGG fans .......

That's all you know on this land, and that's all there is to know.

Never had the money for such expensive micros. Buying a few stash tabs perhaps once a month. Budget playing all the way.

He is wizened and gray, but don't let that fool you. His humble clothing hides a powerful, sinuous physique, honed by many years and athleticism. Age has granted the Templar an older man's wisdom and tact, qualities he combines with surprisingly well-preserved physical strength. 


The mighty Templar bests his foes with weapons of steel, and a shield of righteousness. His great bravery and purpose drive him headlong into the fray, disdaining risk with dogged zeal. Some might look upon the Templar's bravado as foolhardiness, but they simply do not know what is means to be a man of faith. On Wraeclast, where faith and hope are dim, he is a shining, towering beacon. 


The Templar always does nameless, unremembered acts of kindness. Maybe one day when he is need of help someone else will do what he has done to give a helping hand. There is always hope, even when in exile.

It is told in the ancient Vaal scrolls that these flaming skulls are in fact spirits of exiles lost to the heat of the Race Seasons. If one listens closely, their fierce battle cries may be heard whispered through the air... "Hodorrrr"... "Spam 1 2 5 to winnnn"... "WTS Scroll of Wisdomsss"... "Guys I can't mooooove!"...... Their spirits rage on to this day.

I've played PoE around 500 hours now even though my friends and family stopped playing, I just can't help myself theory craft and play the game whenever I can! Now I'm in Japan and it makes me cry everytime I check up the poe reddit to see people having a blast in the 1 month race.

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone will day the same for you. We are all exiled on earth and we must help each other.

If only "up to 50 raging spirits at a time" meant " an unlimited number of raging spirits."

I love to play characters are Marauder, Templar, and Witch. Because they have different powers are Dexterity, Strength, and Intelligence. They are awesome to play with them. I'm biggest fan of RPG. I did play Diablo I and II are my favorite all times. Path of Exile is fun to play for free. :-)

We all carry within us our places of exile, our crimes, and our ravages. But our task is not to unleash them on the world; it is to fight them in ourselves and in others.

This game won me over, i was always a diablo guy and when this game came around it gave me everything diablo was missing. When i started i was amazed at the mountain of options a build could take and every day im surprised to see the different builds people use, and this is no exception! looks like tons of fun :D keep up the good work people!

Well, it was obvious spell echo will change a lot.

It's also great for raising specters that cast spells, evangelists for example - echoed spell with faster cast & physical damage = perfect! :)

@Karchy the tree is getting reworked in the august mini expansion, so you'll get an opp to entirely redo the tree of any toons you've already built. enjoy.
