In Path of Exile, the Twilight Strand is the first area of Act 1 and is connected to Lioneye’s Watch. Newly created characters begin washed up on the beach. Players start with 3 x Scroll of Wisdom, a Small Life Flask in flask slots 1 and 2, and a Small Mana Flask in flask slot 5.
A class-dependent weapon with two linked sockets can be found on the ground nearby, and the Hungry Corpse that kills the Dying Exile drops a class-dependent skill gem when killed.
Halfway along the shore there is a Large Chest containing a support skill gem for the skill gem dropped earlier, also class-dependent. In the Twilight Strand, you will encounter the following monsters:
1. Hillock is a unique monster in The Twilight Strand in Act 1. Defeating him is the objective of the quest Enemy at the Gate. Defeating Hillock is easy. Attacking him repeatedly will do, while occasionally drinking a life flask (buttons 1 and 2) to restore health.
2. Drowned is a type of Zombie found in Act 1.
3. Hungry Corpse is a type of Zombie found in Act 1.
4. Sand Spitter is a type of Spitter. It has a purple colour, and lacks the special abilities many later spitters have.
If you are new to the game, you can follow some build guide from our website. Another option is to just mess around yourself and see how things work but sometimes it can get frustrating if you cannot kill monsters/progress further, so be careful with it.
