With Path of Exile being a game that seems to just keeps on growing, more and more players come in to try it out. Most of them don't have any prior knowledge about the game, so they may need some guides and resources to supplement their learning of the game. Since Path of Exile is such a community-driven game, there have been plenty of guides out there for helping out novice, intermediate, and advanced players with just about anything and everything. That's all good, but you must first know where to look.
Path of POE
There are a few Path of Exile build guide websites out there, and Path of POE is perhaps the best independent website right now. They have user-submitted builds that are then voted on in terms of their efficacy and other qualities by the community.
Each build guide gives detailed information on what it's good and bad at, the skills and gems you have to take, the best Path of Exile items for it, how to level it up as you go, and so on. It also has a great search function so you can see which builds are the best and which are the more novel and less used ones.
