Path of Exile’s newest expansion is called The Fall of Oriath, and as expected, it’s bringing lots of new items, environments, and of course, terrifying bosses. Grinding Gear Games decided to show one of those bosses in a short video, and its name is Arakaali, Spinner of Shadows. As you can presume it’s a huge black spider that shoots some sort of dark purple beams at the player. The team has released a trailer via YouTube to show off the upcoming arachnid. Check out the boss in the video below.
Big spiders have acted as bosses in many games, and their abilities mostly consist of summoning smaller spiders and shooting web at you in order to slow you down. Well, Arakaali does all of this, but it also shoots some sort of black and purple beams at you. The area you fight in is also very small, and there are various weapons of some sort surrounding the arena which also shoot these beams. From the looks of it, this will definitely be a hectic fight considering how small the space in which you are fighting is, and add the deadly beams to all of this and you will most likely die a lot before figuring out how to defeat Arakaali.
For those of you that perhaps aren’t aware, the beta for Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath is starting tomorrow. So you might want to check that out if you’re planning on participating and testing the upcoming expansion!
