  • Fixed a bug where monsters could become inaccessible behind terrain during Ritual encounters.

Echoes of the Atlas Improvements

  • You can no longer imprint Watchstones (for example with the Bestiary imprint recipe or Eternal Orbs). Restoring the number of Sextant uses through this method was a consequence we did not intend.
  • Improved performance during The Maven boss encounter.
  • The Atlas passive skill trees have been visually updated to make it easier to see allocated nodes.
  • The Maven Map Device button has been visually updated to make it easier to see if it's activated.
  • Added an audio telegraph to The Maven's Frost Projectiles skill.
  • While witnessing The Shaper encounter, The Maven will no longer use her Heal skill during The Shaper's immunity phases.
  • The Crusher of Gladiators map boss summoned by The Maven during her boss encounter will no longer use it's Reflect skill.
  • Fixed a bug where Maven's Beacon could be obtained earlier than intended when playing in a party.
  • Maven's Invitations are now a guaranteed drop upon capturing the 10th boss in an Atlas region for the first time.
  • Fixed a bug where the Silo Map boss could become invulnerable while the player is being witnessed by The Maven.
  • Fixed a bug where The Maven's Quick Guard skill was not working as intended in areas which were level 84 or higher.
  • Fixed a bug where The Maven would sometimes fail to use her skills correctly when witnessing a map boss encounter.

General Improvements

  • Items with anointed notable passive skills now show their passive skill information when hovered.
  • Improved readability when hovering over a map on the Atlas which has a large amount of modifiers.
  • You can no longer use the Zana Map Device to apply League modifiers to a map if it is already enchanted with the "Has an additional modifier from Zana's crafting bench at random" modifier from Harvest crafting.
  • You can no longer open portals to The Temple of Atzoatl or Betrayal Safehouses while the Map Device is already in the process of opening portals to another Map.
  • Re-entering the Crimson Township Map boss arena after leaving or dying is now less punishing.
  • Animate Weapon microtransactions can now be applied to weapons animated via the Chains of Command unique body armour.
  • Aura microtransactions can now be applied to Aura effects granted by unique items that do not have a skill gem.
  • Fixed a bug where Sirus' beam skills were not being oriented correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where certain doors in Heists could not be walked through after the doors were opened.
  • Fixed a bug where Vaal Arc was not chaining correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where the "Attack Skills deal x% increased Damage while Dual Wielding" modifier was not working correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where the Flickershade Spectre's Multi-Slash ability could sometimes fail to deal damage.

  • Fixed a bug where the boss arena in Cold River Map would remain closed after completing a Conqueror encounter.

  • Fixed a source of desync when using Chain Hook.
  • Fixed a bug where Silver Coins were not dropping as Contraband in Heists.
  • Fixed a bug where Syndicate Operatives would incorrectly run into melee range before throwing their daggers.
  • Fixed a bug where certain Aura microtransactions were not using the correct surge.
  • Fixed a bug where the Manticore Shield was missing visual effects.
  • Fixed a visual bug in Peninsula Map where certain tiles could become invisible.

Texture Streaming Improvements

  • Texture streaming has been updated to lessen CPU usage and improve overall performance on weaker systems.
  • The High texture quality option has been re-enabled for players on the Vulkan client with 3000mb of Video RAM or less. Previously when the Vulkan renderer ran out of Video RAM it would crash, but now it just degrades performance. We recommend only using High texture quality if you have 3000mb of Video RAM or more.

Mac Improvements

  • Fixed a bug where certain microtransactions would appear invisible.

Crash Fixes

  • Fixed a common client crash.
  • Fixed two instance crashes.


The following server restartless hotfixes were deployed after the 3.13.1 patch:[2]

  • Fixed a bug where Jun could not open portals to a Safehouse when in a Map.
