What Are The Uniques Of Designing The PoE Elder

In Path of Exile, to designers, Designing the unique items for the Elder was a very fun experience. The general design of a lot of elder uniques is that they are intended for a large variety of builds. Because of this, the focus on these designs are attributes, ailments, charges, curses and auras. of course, it is important for you to have enough PoE orbs.

Path of Exile

Cyclopean Coil

As the attribute-focused item in the set, the bonuses of this item were chosen to be mostly defensive, with a secondary offensive effect that can be built around. Attribute stacking is nothing new in Path of Exile. Existing builds already use items like The Whispering Ice and Hand of Wisdom and Action to great effect. However, all those builds focus on stacking a single attribute as high as possible. 

Blasphemer's Grasp

As the ailment-focused item of the set, there was a bunch of design space that opened up with the emergence of Elder and Shaper items. While not exactly a set bonus, this seemed like a good opportunity to make a unique item that rewarded using as many elder items as possible. These gloves just want you to use many elder items, which is consistent with the theme of the Elder influencing as many maps as he can! 

Nebuloch, Hopeshredder and Shimmeron

This is the charge-focused design of the set, which meant that GGG were going to design an item for each charge type. Instead of limiting the Elder to a single weapon type, this allowed them to efficiently make a full item cycle. Since each weapon has a charge associated with them, the base type was chosen by looking at the attribute each charge was aligned to. 

Impresence

As the curse-focused item of the set, these amulets were pitched as one of the rarer drops from the Elder. GGG wanted to make some items drop from the Elder that were reminiscent of the Doryani's Invitation cycle of uniques from Atziri. Choosing a cycle that is split by the 5 damage types in Path of Exile was a good way to go about this.
