Grinding Gear Games have posted another developer diary which explains the upcoming skill changers which will go are in June 2018 together with the 3.3.0 patch. They have also noted that is only the first component of Path of Exile's skill revamps.
The studio have noted it's not usually their policy to discuss large scale updates in public places so far in advance of implementation, but large skill revamps are the best to this rule. This is because these changes aren't going to be implemented within a giant revamp, but each content update would include a batch of updated skills, beginning from update 3.3.0 in June 2018.
Skill revamp decision was triggered by the fact that you will find there's group of older skills that had been overshadowed by newer ones over time. While some ones still have situational uses, most ones are outclassed normally. Grinding Gear Games took the Ice Spear as one example, mainly because it ''performs somewhat adequately in crit-based builds against stationary mid-range bosses'' however it requires a large numbers of support gems so as to hit multiple targets so it is underwhelming against larger categories of enemies.
As you might imagine, skills like Ice Spear won't be getting higher numbers utilized in them, but new mechanics that could make them appealing to get a variety of situations. They will also receive visual updates so that they look pretty and shiny just like the modern skills.
Skill themes may also be a topic in Path of Exile's future development. This will apparently help players with achieving a selected flavour or maybe a style that may be in accord to your character's theme. While these changes won't be ground breaking overhauls, they need to help players make their characters fulfil some niche.
Another goal on this overhaul is to enable players to own more playstyles. Essence Drain and Contagion were chosen as examples that introduced new playstyles and Grinding Gear Games is going to be looking to make more skills seem like a different, unique playstyle. Full developer diary are available on their official forums.
