Path of Exile is a free-to-play game in the genre of dark fantasy that was released in 2013. Players are given the option to choose from seven different classes of exiles, all offering a unique experience and different core attribute alignments, being Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence. The one class that has all three core attributes is the Scion. In Path of Exile, players roam a procedurally generated landscape inspired by classics such as Diablo and others. In this game, items are randomly generated and have storage capabilities known as “gem sockets”, which hold skill gems. These gems can be attached to sockets of armor, weapons and even some of the types of rings available to the player.

Another type of enhancement available for your exile are anointments. You can use these to provide buffs to your exile by modifying certain items. There are 13 different Oils that can be used in Path of Exile, and up to three of them can be combined at any time to create an anointment. One of the best ways to apply anointments is to put them on rings, which you can equip two of simultaneously. Here are the seven best ring anointments in Path of Exile.

By increasing your attack power this much, you will be able to take on stronger foes than ever before.

#6: Meteor Tower Burning Ground Anointment

Although this anointment may seem similar to the last one, the Meteor Tower anointment will change the way your Meteor Tower works in the game. This anointment uses a combination of Indigo Oil and Violet Oil. It will now create Burning Ground for 3 seconds on Hit, which will help you to take out your enemies. With this enhancement at your side, no one can stand in your way.
