Harbinger league was a challenge league. It launched on August 4, 2017 as part of Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath in version 3.0.0.[1] The league ended on December 4, 2017.

This league introduced Harbingers, otherworldly enemies which can only be defeated by destroying its minions. Harbingers drop shards of currency items, including shards for currency not normally found in Wraeclast. All characters and stashes were moved to Standard league and Hardcore league respectively when the leagues ended. Characters that died in the Hardcore Harbinger league were immediately moved to the permanent Standard league.
