How to plan your build using thePath of Exile Skill Tree

The most important part of planning your build inPath of Exile is finding a proper build. If you need help finding a build, I recommend checking out our best Path of Exile League Starter Builds for 3.22.

Once you’ve picked out a build, it’s time to start planning it out. Unfortunately, there are not many options in-game to plan out your build. Thankfully, there’s a third-party tool called Path of Building that allows you to plan out everything for your build. This includes your Skill Tree, gear, Ascendancy points—literally everything! It will also tell you your stats based on the build you have planned out, so you can have a good idea of how much damage you should be doing and how much health you should have.

If you are following along with a build guide, you are in luck. Most build guides include a link that you can import into Path of Building to easily see an entire build plan.

How to reset Skill Points on the PoE Skill Tree

Accidentally choosing the wrong skill on your Skill Tree can be frustrating. Thankfully, there are ways to reset Skill Points on your Skill Tree. If you open up your Skill Tree by hitting the ‘P’ key by default, you will see a spot at the top right that shows your Refund Points. Each skill you want to remove will cost one Refund Point. Also, you can only refund skills at the end of your tree. For example, you can’t just remove a skill in the middle of your tree.

If you need more Refund Points, you can get some via various side quests in all ten acts of the campaign. Furthermore, there is a consumable currency called Orb of Regret. Each Orb of Regret that you consume will give you one Refund Point. Orb of Regrets will drop naturally throughout playingPath of Exile.If you are familiar with trading, you can also trade with other players to obtain Orb of Regrets.
