Path of Exile v0.9.6 Patch This Week, Screenshots

Grinding Gear Games is preparing to deploy a hefty v0.9.6 patch for the beta version of Path of Exile this week, and to give us a sample of what's to come, they've released three new screenshots depicting a battle with the new frenzy-inciting snake monsters in Act Two, the upgraded quest/waypoint interface, and the new Power Siphon, Molten Shell, and Lightning Strike skills in action.  Looking good, as always.

UPDATE: The patch notes are now available for your browsing pleasure.
