Blog: August 15, 2016 - Path of Exile Performance Improvements
Perhaps one of the biggest problems with Path of Exile for the longest time has been the performance issues in the game client. It's not enough that the game used to have desync problems, but it also wasn't the most well-optimized game in the world.

If anything, the hardships seem to have piled on top of each other over the years, and many have complained that the developer hasn't been listening that well to feedback on these faults.
Blog: June 29, 2016 - What is the Best Unique Item in Path of Exile?
There's a bit of a debate on which Path of Exile item seem to be the best.

One of the big things in Path of Exile is acquiring your dream gear for your character.
