Patch notes

These are the patch notes for version 3.12.0.[1]

Please note: Patch 3.11.2 contained a broad restructure to Path of Exile's file system that necessitated a complete redownload of all game files. If you did not update the Path of Exile game client in the week prior to this release, this update will be very large. We suggest you begin the update process early.

The Heist Challenge League

  • Challenge leagues are a great opportunity for a fresh start in a new economy. All of your old characters and items are still present in the Standard and Hardcore leagues, but you're encouraged to join the new leagues, complete challenges and demonstrate your mastery of Path of Exile!
  • In the Heist Challenge League, you'll travel to The Rogue Harbour to hire skilled thieves in order to pull off elaborate and risky Heists. With their help, you'll infiltrate secure facilities, work to bypass security systems and steal valuable Artifacts. You'll need to be careful not to trigger the alarm or the facility will go into lockdown and you'll be swarmed by its guards. When this happens, you'll need to make a mad dash to the extraction point or you'll lose everything you stole along the way.
  • Successfully completing Heists lays the foundation to pull off a thief's ultimate goal - a Grand Heist. For these, you'll need to accumulate Heist markers, gather intel and train and equip your crew. Intel and markers can be used to reveal the details of Blueprints which contain the secrets of elaborate facilities which will allow you to find more reward rooms and plan which Rogue expertise you'll need to bypass security. Grand Heists offer exclusive rewards like Trinkets, Alternate Quality Gems, Replica Unique Items, Experimented Base Types, Weapon and Body Armour enchantments and much more.
  • Each Rogue has one main specialty and several secondary abilities. These skills are essential for completing Heists by allowing you to demolish walls, pick locks and much more. You can equip them with specialised rogue gear to make them more effective in Heists. Each successful Heist will help improve their skills.
  • With 3.12.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Heist challenge league available. They have the same core mechanics and items. You can create private league versions of these leagues, with mods that make the game harder.
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you will receive the Nenet's Hood, Huck's Helmet and Vinderi's Helmet Effects. When you reach 24 challenges, you will receive the Heist Cat Pet. At 36 challenges completed you'll receive the Heist Portal Effect. These microtransactions are only obtainable in this league.
  • From the 19th challenge onwards and for every third challenge after that, you will receive pieces of the Heist Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Heist challenges you completed during the league.

Minor New Content and Features

  • The following skills have received visual updates: Lightning Strike, Fire Storm, Ice Storm (from The Whispering Ice), Caustic Arrow, Smoke Mine, Discharge and all Curses,
  • Permanent minions such as Golems, Zombies and Animated Guardians are now saved when you log out, and are automatically resummoned when you log in.
  • Divination Cards that award an item with an Elderslayer's Influence now have special background effects.
  • A few torches will now light your way to Lioneye's Watch.
  • Improved the Atlas Influence visuals.
  • Significantly improved performance when viewing and using crafting benches.
  • Made a multitude of visual adjustments to the brightness (and bloom effect) of skills and effects throughout the game.
  • Improved effects culling across many skills and effects for performance.
  • Continued to incrementally improve the sound, art, effects and environments.

Character Balance

  • Projectiles have been reworked to allow for more player-friendly behaviour. Previously, if a projectile could not perform a step in its behaviour sequence, it would skip that behaviour, attempt the next, and never attempt to perform the skipped behaviour again. Now, it will skip that behaviour, attempt the next, and if it reaches another enemy, attempt to perform the skipped behaviours again. For example, a projectile that can both Chain and Return will now hit a target and, if there are no enemies for it to Chain to, it will Return. If it then hits another group of enemies, it will attempt to Chain again (though it will not Return again after Chaining).
  • The sequence of behaviours a projectile will attempt, in order, is now: Splitting, Piercing, Forking, Chaining then Returning.
  • Many modifiers to the effects and durations of Chill and Shock (such as 'increased effect of Shock') now also affect Brittle and Sap. The descriptions of such modifiers have been updated to reflect this.
  • Intensity now has a maximum of 3 stacks (from 4).
  • Removed the concept 'Reduced Visibility to Enemies' and replaced it with 'Stealth'. Increasing your Stealth reduces the radius at which enemies will notice you. 100% increased Stealth cuts that radius in half, and 200% increased Stealth cuts that radius by two thirds. You can, therefore, no longer become entirely invisible to enemies.

Skill Reworks

Curse Skills

All curse skills have been reworked and are now divided into two categories: Hexes and Marks.
  • Hexes apply a curse in an area and, when manually cast, apply an amount of Doom per second to cursed enemies up to a maximum. Doom increases the effect of the afflicted curse and stacks additively with modifiers to increased Curse effect.
  • Marks apply to a single targeted enemy, and only one enemy can be marked by you at a given time. The current Mark skills are Poacher's MarkPoacher's MarkSpell, Curse, Mark, Physical

    (previously named Projectile Weakness). Monster rarity no longer affects the efficacy of Marks. Monsters deep in the Azurite Mine (Delve) also no longer reduce the efficacy of Marks on them.
  • Additions to the number of curses you can inflict on enemies apply cumulatively to both Hexes and Marks, but do not modify the number of enemies you can have Marked at any given time. Thus, you can have an enemy that is affected by both a Mark and a Hex, but you can't Mark an enemy with two Marks, nor can you Mark two different enemies.
  • Items and enemies which previously reflected Curses will now only reflect Hexes.

Skills which interact with Hexes and/or Marks will have the Hex and/or Mark tag, but will not have the Curse tag. Bane, for example, has the Hex tag but not the Curse tag, as it is not a Curse. As a result, modifiers to Curse skill gems will not affect skill gems like Bane.
  • Improved the targeting behaviour of Lightning Tendrils, Wither, and Blade Flurry. They should no longer 'name lock', and now allow you to retarget without ceasing channelling.

    Guard your darkest thoughts well, for they are
    the cracks through which the Nightmare crawls.
    : The Ice Storm skill has undergone a significant rebalance, with larger impacts falling in a smaller area meaning you are significantly more likely to hit targets within the area multiple times over the storm's duration than before:
    • Now has 2 to 4 base Cold Damage per 10 Intelligence (from 1 to 3).
    • Now has a base Duration of 1 second (from 1.5 seconds).
    • Now gains 0.1 seconds of additional base duration per 100 intelligence (from 0.15 seconds).
    • There is now 1 impact every 0.2 seconds (from every 0.1 seconds)
    • Now has an Added Damage effectiveness of 60% (from 45%).
    • Now has a maximum of 5 storms at a time (any more than that replace the oldest).
    • Impacts now have a base radius of 16 units (from 10).
    • Impacts can now land in an area with a base radius of 22 (from 25).

  • Monsters which previously used curses have had their behaviours updated in line with the new curse behaviour.
  • Monster packs in The Caverns and The Ancient Pyramid now spawn with the appropriate Necromancer (no more Ash Prophets with lightning skeletons).
