The Blight Expansion Pack Summary

The Blight expansion pack has introduced Sister Cassia to the game, who is a brand-new NPC. Your main task will be to help her stop the Blight from spreading. Blight is a plant that is slowly growing, and it will soon take over the world of Path of Exile if nothing is done about it. The worst thing about this plant is that it can control the minds of monsters. Not only this, but it also makes them stronger. So, by using the best use of available resources, you will have to put an end to the Blight.

The new expansion has also introduced Tower Defense mechanics, and you can build various Towers to take down your enemies quickly.
