We recently announced the upcoming Path of Exile: Crucible Expansion where players will discover the Titan's Crucible and forge powerful passive skill trees onto their weapons. We've received a number of questions about this expansion and have prepared answers for many of them in this news post.

Following our livestream of reveals, Chris Wilson and ZiggyD hosted a Q&A session to answer many of your questions. Check out the video below!

The following are mostly questions that were asked outside of the above Q&A.

For any questions we answer after this post, we'll include them in our RAQ post here.

Will Crucible become a core game mechanic?

Can we get a list of the Crucible passives, and which weapon types they can appear on?

How many portals does the Forge of the Titans area have?

Are the Crucible trees randomly generated each time and are the skills specific to the weapon or shield type?

Are there any restrictions to how many times you can merge trees on a weapon or shield?

Did you forget to post Minion Mastery changes?

Will unequipping Blood Price, the new helmet that reserves nearby enemy monsters' life, heal enemies? (i.e. could you use it as a helmet swap for a free 8% extra damage against bosses)

Will Master Distiller work with Mageblood?

Can you clarify how the new “10% of leech is instant” Mastery option works? Does it recover 10% of your maximum total life per second from leech?

Regarding, “Skills cost Life instead of 30% of Mana Cost.” Does this mean that a skill that costs 10 mana will only cost 3 life with this node, or does it just transfer 30% of cost to life, as in 3 life + 7 mana?

With the introduction of the new Life Mastery “15% increased maximum Life if there are no Life Modifiers on Equipped Body Armour”, will unique modifiers on items currently tagged as Life modifiers get a passover to make more uniques work with this Mastery?

The Gain Adrenaline for 1 second when you switch stance Mastery seems too strong. Will you change it?

Do you know if the Triggerbots will work with things like Summon Holy Relic minions?

What are the implications of the changes to the way projectiles return to you for both Kinetic Blast and Fireball when used with the Nimis Ring linked with fork? Do they still explode on walls and your character, and on contact with fork?

Did United in Dream also lose its poison chance?

Has the Balance of Terror Jewel been removed from the game?

What is Spark's Projectile Speed now?

Was the removal of Books of Regression intended to nerf the strategy that involved using them for Heist?

With Ruthless offering a different, smaller set of challenges to complete than the base game, will it be possible to complete some challenges in Ruthless and others in the main league in order to get these rewards?

Why is the Boss Kill Event being hosted in Ruthless?

Is there a prize pool for the Boss Kill Event on consoles?
