Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 3.17.0 released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

Siege of the Atlas

  • After defeating Kitava, you will meet Commander Kirac in the Karui Shores and join his militia to safeguard the Atlas of Worlds. The Envoy will inform you that two Eldritch Horrors, The Searing Exarch and The Eater of Worlds, are approaching and will consume everything.
  • By completing maps affected by their influence, you can hunt down their sub-bosses, The Black Star and The Infinite Hunger, before finally facing The Searing Exarch and The Eater of Worlds themselves. Defeating these formidable foes yields valuable rewards including exclusive new unique items.
  • The Atlas of Worlds has been revised, and regions have been removed. The regional Atlas Passive Trees have been replaced with one gigantic Atlas-wide Passive Tree that affects all maps you run. You can earn points by completing bonus objectives of maps and finishing certain Atlas quests.
  • The Watchstone system has also been removed, and replaced with Voidstones which are obtained by defeating The Uber Elder, The Maven, The Searing Exarch and The Eater of Worlds. These Voidstones raise the tiers of maps on your Atlas and can be augmented by Sextants.

The Archnemesis 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!
  • Archnemesis is a challenge league that reinvigorates fights with rare monsters. It introduces around 60 new monster mods and allows you to customise your rare boss fights to control your level of risk and reward. These mods can be combined in over 35 recipes to create new, more powerful and rewarding mods. As you play through the league, you'll discover more recipes and learn how to best utilise them to get the most valuable rewards.
  • When you slay regular Rare and Magic monsters in the Archnemesis League, they sometimes drop an itemised version of a new Archnemesis monster modifier. You store these in a dedicated inventory panel so that they don't clutter your regular inventory.
  • Over the course of each area you play, you'll encounter four monsters that are frozen in place, petrified and bound to the Archnemesis statue. When you find such a monster, you can free it by empowering it with an Archnemesis mod. If you're able to successfully defeat the empowered monster, then you will receive the fixed reward that corresponds to that modifier.
  • The mods you apply will accumulate as you play through the area. When you empower your second monster, it also has the mod you applied to the first monster. This results in a fight that has twice as many dangerous mods, and twice as many rewards. By the time you have empowered and slain four petrified monsters in an area, you will have received the first reward four times.
  • More than half of the available mods are created by combining other mods together on the same monster. These recipe mods yield substantially more dangerous encounters and have more valuable rewards.
  • To prevent you having to backtrack, there are more than four possible locations where you may encounter petrified monsters in each area, but only the first four you encounter can be empowered and fought.
  • Archnemesis mods cannot be traded with other players. Your progress is your own.
  • With 3.17.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Archnemesis 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 league includes a set of 40 new challenges. There are microtransaction rewards when you complete 12, 24, and 36 challenges. The challenge rewards are only obtainable in this league, and will be revealed in an upcoming news post.
  • From the 19th challenge onwards and for every third challenge after that, you will receive pieces of the Archnemesis Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Archnemesis challenges you completed during the league.

Content and Rewards

Rewards from Conquerors

Problem:

Awakened Gems are a significant damage boost for many builds. With Sirus and the Conquerors being moved to optional, less consistent late game content, Awakened Gems will not have a reasonable method of acquisition.

Solution:

Move awakened gems to a different drop location.

Specifics:

  • Awakened Gems no longer drop from Conquerors. Some Awakened Gems can now drop from The Maven's Crucible, with all Awakened Gems now being a possible drop from The Maven.

Problem:

With Conquerors being moved to secondary late-game content, Influenced items will be harder to obtain. Certain generic modifiers from Influenced items are significant improvements to damage for a large subset of builds, and locking that power behind the Influence mechanic limits both player options and pushes players to chase the secondary content more.

Solution:

Move certain powerful influence modifiers into the base item modifier pool, out of the Influence modifier pool. These modifiers will still have a high level requirement.

Specifics:

  • Influenced Amulet prefix modifiers that grant +1 to level of gems have been added to the core Amulet modifier pool, and can no longer roll on Influenced Amulets.
  • Influenced Shield prefix modifiers that grant increases to maximum Resistances have been added to the core Shield modifier pool, and can no longer roll on Influenced Shields.
  • Influenced prefix modifiers that grant increases to maximum Resistances on Boots, Gloves, and Helmets are now suffix modifiers.
  • Shields that drop from Delve Chests no longer have their own maximum Resistances prefix modifiers. They will be able to roll the new generic modifier normally.
  • Synthesised Shields can no longer roll increases to maximum Resistances as an implicit modifier.

Rewards from The Maven

Problem: Some of the Unique items that drop from The Maven are not powerful enough due to changes to the structure of the Endgame content.

Solution: Improve these Uniques so they feel appropriate as a reward from an Endgame boss.

Specifics:

Atlas Base Types

Problem:

With Atlas Regions no longer existing in 3.17.0, there is no longer a location specific way to obtain Atlas Base Types. The new atlas has no clear distinction for how different locations could drop specific base types.

Solution:

Make Atlas Base types into regular item drops, but have a lower chance to drop.

Sextants

Problem:

Sextants were previously applied to Watchstones which you could acquire very early into your Atlas progression. Sextants will now be applied to Voidstones, which are something you'll first encounter very deep into your Atlas progression.

Solution:

Have Sextants begin dropping closer to the time that you'll actually have a Voidstone so that you're not stuck with Sextants that have no use case.

Specifics:

    Divination Card can no longer be obtained. Existing Divination Cards can still be turned in, awarding 10 Awakened Sextants.

Trading Sextants

Problem:

There are only 4 Voidstones that can be acquired, therefore there is no way to itemise a Sextant modifier for later by slotting in an alternate Voidstone. We like the ability to itemise a Sextant modifier for use at a later time.

Solution:

Add a new currency item that can be used on Voidstones, storing the Sextant Modifier in an itemised form, allowing for use at a later time or for trading to other players.

Specifics:

  • We have added a new currency item, the Surveyor's CompassSurveyor's CompassStack Size: 10Stores a Sextant Modifier in an itemRight click on this item then left click on a Voidstone to itemise an applied Sextant Modifier.
    Shift click to unstack.
    . When applied to a Voidstone that has a Sextant modifier on it, the modifier will be removed from the Voidstone and you will have an itemised Sextant modifier. This will allow valuable Sextants to be used at a time of your choosing or you can choose to trade this Sextant modifier to another player.

    , and also has a chance to drop like other standard currency items.

The Vaal Temple Map

Problem: Corrupting into Vaal Temple wasn't a very good outcome, even though it's meant to be rare and special. With the removal of Regions, it would become more common.

Solution: In order to have Vaal Temple feel more special as an outcome, we've added a special implicit modifier to Vaal Temple.

Specifics:

  • The "Area contains 10 additional guarded Vaal Vessels" implicit modifier on Vaal Temple forces the map to generate with 10 Vaal Vessels. Each of these acts as a Strongbox (spawning 3 packs of monsters as well as a Vaal Side Area Boss). These Vaal Vessels have additional drops themed around corruption. This change will only be present on Vaal Temple Maps found after 3.17.0's release.

Blight-ravaged Maps

Problem: Blight-ravaged maps are generally not as rewarding as regular Blighted Maps given the time investment and difficulty increase.

Solution: Improve the reward for increasing the difficulty of Blight-ravaged Maps.

Specifics:

  • Blight-ravaged Maps now have "Map's Item Quantity Modifiers also affect Blight Chest count at 40% value" (previously 20%). This change affects existing items.

Divination Cards and the Atlas Rotation

Problem: With maps now constantly rotating in and out of the Atlas, some Divination Cards may no longer have a location or boss that they can naturally be obtained from. In 3.16.0 this was handled by manually ensuring that every divination card still had a map to drop in, but this is not feasible to do for every release.

Solution:

Change drop locations of many Divination Cards to drop in a specific thematically-linked list of areas. A few will drop in slightly fewer locations because of this change. Make sure every divination card that drops in maps will always have a map on the Atlas that drops it.

Specifics:

  • Many divination cards that drop in maps now drop in additional map areas. In most cases their existing drop locations have not changed, and those cases have not been patch noted individually. Atlas reshuffles will mean that some of these locations will not be available in any given league, but checks are in place to ensure that every divination card available in maps always has at least one map present on the Atlas.
  • Drop weightings and minimum area levels for the vast majority of cards have not been changed, but drop weightings for a very small number of cards have been reduced in cases where the number of maps they're available from has greatly increased.
  • A longstanding bug in the code determining area level restrictions for some divination card drops has been fixed. This means that cards intended to have a high area level requirement (mostly ones that grant item level 100 items) will no longer fluctuate wildly in availability from league to league.
  • A small number of cards no longer drop in areas where they used to drop and these changes are detailed below. Most of these cards also now have new locations they can drop.

A small number of divination cards turn in for specific maps. This means that either these maps have to always be present when Atlas rotation occurs, or the rewards of these cards have to be altered so that they can always give a valid reward.

Solution:

Make most divination cards that previously granted a specific map now grant a specific tier of map.

Specifics:

  • Turning in a full stack of The Arena ChampionThe Arena ChampionThe Arena Champion card art.png10Map

Prophecy

Problem:

Most prophecy content is not up to our modern standards of league quality or rewards, and as new systems and mechanics are introduced, older content is gradually retired.

Solution:

Remove the Prophecy mechanic from the game, and move many of its rewards to other content.

Specifics:

Spoiler

  • Navali no longer appears in the game. The Faun fight is still present in The Climb.
  • Silver Coins can no longer drop. Existing Silver Coins and itemised Prophecies will be deleted from your inventory and stash the next time you log in after the launch of 3.17.0.

  • The Pale Council fight is no longer accessible and its previously-exclusive Unique Items have been added to the core drop pool. Existing Pale Council Fragments will be deleted from your inventory and stash the next time you log in after the launch of 3.17.0.
  • The Ruler of the Court Achievement is now obtained after completing The Vinktar Square (previously from defeating The Pale Council).
  • Stored crafts that change a Pale Court Key into another random Pale Court Key have been removed from Horticrafting Stations.
  • Prophecy Item rewards are no longer obtainable from other League content. Existing Prophecy rewards types on Heist Blueprints and Itemised Metamorph Samples have been converted to Currency rewards.
  • Perception Heist Contracts and Blueprints can now spawn generic reward chest rooms at the same rate at which they used to spawn Prophecy reward chest rooms.
  • Leo's Betrayal Transportation Safehouse rewards are now Catalysts, and his Intervention rewards are now Metamorph Scarabs, with Torment Scarabs now being Aislings reward.
  • Existing Portentous Delirium Orbs will be converted to Fine Delirium Orbs.
  • Lilly Roth now invites herself to your hideout once you complete the Fallen from Grace quest in Act 6. In addition to accessing her Gem shop and selling items to her, you can now turn in Divination Cards to her in your Hideout. If you've already completed Fallen from Grace in a permanent league, you will need to talk to Lilly again in Lioneye's Watch to unlock her in your Hideout.

Problem:

Some Divination cards grant Prophecy-related rewards that can no longer be obtained (for example, sealed prophecies).

Solution:

We have updated some Divination Cards that previously awarded Sealed Prophecies, and temporarily disabled others that did not have a relevant update that could be made.

Betrayal

Problem:

Leaders are only able to reinforce a job in specific situations where another job member is a higher or lower rank. This can result in a player unknowingly preventing a Leader from joining, and locking out any reinforcements from joining an encounter.

Solution:

Betrayal job Leaders can now assist as reinforcements on a job if there are a total of 3 ranks worth of syndicate members in that job. This allows you to draw a leader out more easily by having multiple equally ranked members on a job, or a single rank 3 member on a job.

Delve Biome Modifiers

Problem:

Newly-introduced delve biome modifiers that forced all side passage chests to be a specific chest type (such as fossils or azurite) could be used to repeatedly farm the same section of passage to produce huge amounts of resonators and fossils.

Solution:

Change Delve biome modifiers that forced chests in side passages to be a particular chest to instead only affect chests behind fractured walls. Modifiers that made side passage chests of a particular type remain unchanged.

Problem:

Newly-introduced delve biome modifiers that caused the crawler to consume less sulphite could be used to farm experience very efficiently by finding a biome with a high value of this mod, repeatedly running the same path and logging out before completing the encounter.

Solution:

Reduce the values of sulphite-used biome modifiers

Specifics:

Spoiler

  • They now range from 20-50% reduced sulphite used, down from 25-100% reduced. Higher values of this mod can now also only appear deeper in the mines, with the highest tier becoming available at depth 500+.

Monster Balance

Act 2 Improvements

Problem:

Many monsters in act 2 are not up to the standard of challenge and polish of other content.

Solution:

Improve the behaviour of most Act 2 monsters, raise the life of some weaker Act 2 monsters and add new monster varieties to some Act 2 areas

Specifics:

Tormented Martyrs

Problem:


Monsters touched by Tormented Martyrs explode on death. The danger posed by this explosion is hard to predict due to being dependent on the monster's main hand attack damage, which varies widely between monster types.

Solution:

Change the damage dealt when Tormented Martyr-touched monsters explode to be based only on the monster's level, meaning that every monster in a given area will deal a similar amount of damage when it explodes.

Existing Monster modifiers

Problem: Certain random monster modifiers have outdated values, and a more diverse set of modifiers are required for Archnemesis to provide an even spread of effects on killing Rare monsters.

Solution: Update and add to monster modifiers. Add more options for Caster monsters to allow more diverse modifier outcomes, and new enhanced defence modifiers. Specifics: Spoiler

  • The Aura radius for "Allies Move and Attack Faster" has been increased to be the same as other Monster Auras.
  • Caster Monsters are now able to have Extra Damage as a modifier.
  • The Plated modifier now provides 30% additional Physical Damage Reduction instead of Armour. It still only appears on Monsters that have Armour.
  • Added new Magic and Rare Monster modifiers for Chaos Resistance for all Monsters.
  • Added new Magic and Rare Monster modifiers for Extra Lightning Damage for attack Monsters.
  • Added new Magic and Rare Monster modifiers for Cast Speed and Spell Damage for caster Monsters.
  • The "Allies Deal Substantial Extra Physical Damage" modifier no longer has the word "Substantial" in it, though the values of the modifier have not changed.
  • The Evasion Rating modifier for Monsters is now a prefix modifier instead of a suffix, to match the Armour and Energy Shield modifiers.

Mausoleum Map Boss

Problem: The Mausoleum Map Boss' Detonate Dead is not very well-telegraphed, making an avoidable source of damage hard to identify.

Solution: Reduce the number of corpses Tolman, the Exhumer, is able to explode at once and add a visual effect wind-up to the skill.

Player Balance

Hit-based Spellcasting

Problem: Most hit-based Spellcasting builds deal too little damage and have too few defensive and mobility options when compared with alternatives like Traps, Totems, Mines, Triggered Skills or Damage over Time.

Solution:

  • Adjust the hit damage growth of most spells. The majority of spells gained around 45% more damage at gem level 20, resulting in up to 60% more damage by gem level 25. Some spells have received smaller adjustments or no adjustment. These less affected spells are generally those that provide more mobility or supplemental damage through duration mechanics.

    . Because it is the single most impactful support for the kind of build that benefits from the aforementioned buffs, it creates limited options for these builds by feeling like the only option. With these builds otherwise being buffed, there should be more build options available than before.
  • Lower the damage from Totem, Trap, Mine and Trigger effects to balance out the buff to these spells. The intention is that in general, these builds should deal the same damage at high levels as they did previously. While at face value these changes will look like nerfs, for the most part they shouldn't be due to the buffs to spells. However, we do acknowledge there will be a small number of builds that will be negatively affected by these changes. Additionally, because we've adjusted some support gems that multiply the number of traps thrown, we've provided some compensation for this on non-cooldown trap skills like Fire Trap and Lightning Trap.
  • Lower the damage of player Ignite by 28% to partially offset the damage increase that many Ignite-applying spells have received. For the majority of high level spell gems, this is a slight damage buff when combined with the above changes. Burning ArrowBurning ArrowAttack, Projectile, Fire, Bow

    and several other skills have received changes to compensate for the lower damage of Ignite. Attack skills and a small number of spells that are not typically aligned with Ignites will have weaker Ignites as a result of this change.

Hit-based Bow Attacks

Problem:

Hit-based bow attacks require an unreasonable amount of investment to reach competitive levels of damage. Builds that want to achieve this must utilise critical strikes and many skills can't sufficiently invest in this mechanic without sacrificing defensive options.

Solution:

  • Give bows the same local added elemental damage modifiers as two handed melee weapon modifiers do, which are much stronger than the bow-specific modifiers used previously.
  • Improve the damage of bows in general, with some base types getting up to 50% more base damage than before.
  • Improve the Mastery options on Bow Passive clusters.
  • Added a new Keystone Passive, Precise Technique, which grants "40% more Attack Damage if Accuracy Rating is higher than Maximum Life" and "Never deal Critical Strikes".
  • Make a number of improvements to quivers so that bows can receive much more damage from rare quivers:
  • We have reworked the quiver progression with new quiver types that provide a diverse set of useful implicits.
  • We have greatly improve Added Physical Damage modifiers on quivers.
  • We have replaced "Elemental Damage with Attack Skills" modifiers on quivers with "Increased Damage with Bow Skills" to allow quivers to roll another way to improve skills dealing Physical or Chaos damage.
  • We have taken the +1 Arrow prefix off influenced quiver modifiers and added it to the core modifier pool of quivers as a suffix.
  • We have added an extra tier to the Attack Speed and Accuracy modifiers on quivers.

Specifics: Spoiler

  • Instead of their own line of modifiers, bows now use the two-handed weapon versions of local Added Fire, Cold, Lightning and Chaos Damage prefix modifiers.
  • Quivers can no longer roll "Increased Elemental Damage with Attack Skills" modifiers. Instead, they can now roll "Increased Damage with Bow Skills".
  • An example of the new highest tier modifier on quivers is: 43-50% increased damage with bow skills.

Sources of Added Damage

Problem:

Added Cold, Lightning and Chaos Damage Support Gems provide significant unconditional added damage that outclasses many damage options available to some builds, most notably bow builds. By comparison, many other sources of added damage are relatively weak.

Solution:

Lower the strength of unconditional "Added Damage" Support Gems, and raise the strength of "Local Added Damage" and "Added Damage to Spells" on weapons.

. These skills should not be balanced around using an off-class or off-theme skill like this. Maintaining the ability to use this interaction would prevent us from improving certain bow skills and hit damage spells without their maximum damage output being too high.

Solution: Change Hydrosphere to have a one second cooldown before it can be hit again. This maintains the ailment mechanic on Hydrosphere to still allow for some special skill interactions but is no longer such a significant single target damage multiplier for so many skills.

Triggering Marks

Problem: When applied through Mark-on-hit skills or unique items that trigger them, Marks are far more efficient for clearing and easier to sustain on boss fights. Builds that don't have access to these high-end items are disadvantaged in comparison.

Solution: Make Marks permanent so they only require a single cast for boss encounters. Add a new support gem that lets attacks trigger marks on hitting Rare and Unique targets. Specifics: Spoiler

  • Mark curse skills are now permanent.
  • Mark curse skills no longer have the "Duration" tag.
  • Applied Marks are removed when the Marker, player or monster, dies.
  • Added a new Dexterity Support gem - Mark on Hit: Trigger Supported Mark Skill when you Hit a Rare or Unique Enemy with an Attack. This support adds a cooldown and a small curse effect penalty to the triggered Mark skill, but does not need to be linked to the triggering attack.

  • The Deadeye Focal Point Ascendancy Passive Skill no longer has "Marks you inflict are not removed from Dying Enemies". Instead, it now has "Your Mark transfers to another Enemy when Marked Enemy dies".
  • The Influence modifiers that Trigger a Mark when you Hit a Rare or Unique Enemy have been removed from the modifier pool, so they can no longer be obtained.

Fortification and Damage Reduction

Problem:

Fortification gain being scaled by the damage dealt by a fortifying hit means that hitting monsters with very high amounts of damage reduction (such as in the Azurite Mines, the Simulacrum or against monsters that have just been spawned by certain league mechanics) can grant little to no fortification, even for builds with very high damage.

Solution:

Fortification generation now ignores the target's damage reduction.

Attack characters and Frenzy Charge sustain

Problem:

Attack characters have limited, powerful options for sustaining Frenzy Charges, forcing the use of specific skills for obtaining low opportunity cost Frenzy Charges. Marks have only one Mastery that provides an offensive effect, while the rest are Utility and Defence oriented. With Marks being easier to apply thanks to the new Mark triggering support gem, there could be a more diverse set of options for Mark investment.

Solution:

Added a new Mark Mastery: 10% chance to gain a Frenzy Charge on Hit against a Marked Enemy

Arrow Speed

Problem: Arrow Speed is only used on one passive and a small number of gem qualities, but Galvanic Arrow's "Increases and Reductions to Arrow Speed also apply to this Skill's Area of Effect" stat is worded inaccurately to include the stat.

builds can gain significantly more damage by diluting the pool of Desecratable monsters with high-life Spectres. Because of how Desecrate selected monsters, the fewer monsters occurring in the area, the more damage Detonate Dead dealt.

Solution: Change Desecrate to have a fixed chance to spawn a Spectre corpse. This means Detonate Dead's damage should be more consistent based on which area in the game you are in. This also means there is no incentive to bring multiple different high-life spectre varieties, although you still benefit from bringing one high-life spectre into areas.

Problem: Certain Corpses have far higher life totals than others, giving extreme survivability when used as a Spectre and very high damage of skills based on their corpse life.

Solution: Lower the life of Spectre versions of monsters that have very high life totals. Their life is being brought down to match Kitava's Herald monsters. This will affect their corpse when created with Desecrate.

has very high damage scaling as its damage scales with increases to Area of Effect. Increasing the area of Seismic Trap impacts greatly increases the chance of multiple large bursts hitting a target, as area increases don't affect the area where the impacts can occur. Though this mechanic is interesting, it provides far too much damage for the investment cost and the damage of the skill would have to be lowered to by so much to offset this that the skill would be very weak without the overlapping mechanic.

Solution: Make modifiers to Area of Effect apply to the area Seismic Trap's bursts can target at a ratio. This will slightly improve the area coverage of the skill while lowering the damage growth from increases to Area of Effect without removing their damage benefit entirely.

is a very low-cost method to gain four extra auras on some builds due to the change where Mana is not being required in order to cast an aura. It also took full advantage of the Supreme Ego keystone in a way that goes against the intent of the mechanic and gained a significant amount of power in the process.

Solution:

  • Rework the Blessing mechanic of March of the Legion to limit the number of Blessings you can have to one. Change the skill to cost mana instead of temporarily reserving mana. The process of making this change also highlighted a number of problems with other mechanics which has led to a ripple effect of other changes being required.
  • Release Blessing as a Support gem, to make the mechanic available to builds that are not using the unique item. This is intended to be useful for high mana-use characters who wish to leave their mana unreserved and for characters using the Blood Magic keystone.
  • Improve the aura level granted by March of the Legion so the item excels at using a Blessing aura.
  • Remove Mortal Conviction and the life passives from behind the Blood Magic keystone and make a Mortal Conviction-style support gem that makes an aura free, and prevents you reserving mana. It will be mutually exclusive with Blessing skills, so you won't be able to use both simultaneously. This support gem provides slightly less aura effect to the skill than the Blessing Support but has no cost or upkeep involved.
  • Change Blood Magic to also grant 10% more life to compensate for the removal of the efficient life passives behind the keystone.
  • Change Supreme Ego to not limit you to one aura and instead give more aura effect based on how much mana an aura reserves.

Specifics:

Spoiler

  • Added a new Strength/Intelligence Support gem - Divine Blessing: Converts supported Aura Skills into temporary Blessings with increased effect, changing their Reservation to a one-time cost. You will only be able to benefit from one Blessing at a time. This gem cannot convert Banner Skills.
  • The March of the Legion Unique Boots now have "+3-5 to Level of Socketed Aura Gems" (previously +2). Socketed Gems are now Supported by Level 25 Divine Blessing (previously known as Blessing).
  • Added a new Strength Support gem - Eternal Blessing: Supported Aura Skills lose their reservations and become Blessings. You will only be able to benefit from one Blessing at a time and while under the effect of a Supported Skill, all Non-Blessing Skills which reserve mana are disabled.
  • The Mortal Conviction Keystone, and the two increased maximum life skills prior to it, have been removed from the Passive Skill Tree.
  • The Blood Magic Keystone no longer has "Spend Life instead of Mana for effects of Skills" and it now has "10% more maximum Life".
  • The Supreme Ego Keystone now has "Auras from your Skills can only affect you" (previously "Auras from your Skills do not affect Allies"), "Aura Skills have 1% more Aura Effect per 2% of maximum Mana they Reserve" and "40% more Mana Reservation of Skills" (previously 50% more Reservation of Skills).

Solution: Change Shade Form's cooldown to pause while the skill is active. Reduce the cooldown from 45 seconds to 40 seconds.

  • Trypanon now has "This Weapon's Critical Strike Chance is 100%" instead of "All Attacks with this Weapon are Critical Strikes". This change means that modifiers to Critical Strike Chance can reduce the weapon's critical chance below 100% now.

did not function correctly after the Mana cost rework in 3.14, as it applied after other modifiers, including Blood Magic.

Solution:

Replace these modifiers with an effect with a similar downside, which would no longer count as a cost. This means they will no longer prevent the skill being used if no mana is available.

Specifics: Spoiler

  • The Voidbringer Unique Gloves now have "Lose 40-80 Mana when you use a Skill", instead of "+40-80 to Total Mana Cost of Skills".
  • The Apep's Rage Unique Wand now has "Lose 40 Mana when you use a Skill", instead of "+40 to Total Mana Cost of Skills".

Item Balance

Problem: The crafted version of added fire, cold, and lightning damage modifiers on Gloves are more powerful than the base modifier versions that can roll on Gloves.

Solution: Add two new tiers of added fire, cold and lightning damage to the core glove modifier pool. Specifics: Spoiler

  • Here are the new highest tier versions of these modifiers that can roll on Gloves:
  • "Adds 11-15 to 23-27 Fire Damage to Attacks"
  • "Adds 10-13 to 20-24 Cold Damage to Attacks"
  • "Adds 1-4 to 40-43 Lightning Damage to Attacks"
  • Essences of Anguish, Suffering, and Torment have been adjusted accordingly.

Problem: Recouping Life from damage taken has too few locations to invest in the mechanic, with items only giving the mechanic on Unique items.

Solution: Introduce ring modifiers that cause a percentage of the damage you take from hits to be recouped as life over the 4 seconds following the hit.

Specifics:

  • Added four tiers of the new modifier to the core modifier pool for Rings, that causes a percentage of the damage you take to be recouped as life.
  • The highest tier version of this modifier that can be obtained on Rings is: "13-15% of Damage taken Recouped as Life"

Problem: The Veiled Belt modifier that provides Flask Effect and reduced Charges is a suffix, while the Belt modifiers in the core modifier pool that provide Flask Effect are prefixes.

Solution: The Veiled Belt modifier that provides increased Flask Effect and reduced Flask Charges gained has been changed to a prefix modifier. Existing modifiers will be unaffected.

Problem: The Crafting option for Attack Speed on Shields is a much smaller value than is obtainable on Dexterity based Shields.

Solution: Change the Shield crafted modifier to use a higher Attack Speed value. This can apply to any Shield type. Specifics:

  • The increased Attack Speed crafted modifier on Shields now provides values of 7-12% (previously 3-5%).

Problem: Increased Spell, Fire, Cold and Lightning Damage prefix modifiers on one hand weapons have a jump in values across tiers.

Solution: We have smoothed the progression of tiers for increased Spell, Fire, Cold, and Lightning Damage on prefix modifiers, so there is no longer a sudden jump in values.

Specifics:

  • Tier 3 increased Spell, Fire, Cold, and Lightning Damage modifiers now provide values of 70-84% (previously 65-74%) on one-handed Weapons.
  • Tier 4 increased Spell, Fire, Cold, and Lightning Damage modifiers now provide values of 55-69% (previously 50-64%) on one-handed Weapons.
  • Tier 5 increased Spell, Fire, Cold, and Lightning Damage modifiers now provide values of 40-54% (previously 40-49%) on one-handed Weapons.

Problem: Cluster Jewels allow the stacking of Maximum Total Life Recovery per second from Leech, letting the mechanic reach such high values that Strength of Blood would mitigate too much damage.

Solution: Remove Maximum Total life recovery per second from Leech from Cluster Jewel notables, and improve other aspects of the Notables they come from.

Specifics:

  • The Adrenaline Cluster Jewel Passive no longer has "10% increased Maximum total Life Recovery per second from Leech". Instead, it now has 8% increased maximum Life (previously 6%).
  • The Conservation of Energy Cluster Jewel Passive no longer has "10% increased Maximum total Energy Shield Recovery per second from Leech". Instead, it now has 10% increased maximum Energy Shield (previously 8%).

Problem: The ShortcutThe ShortcutThe Shortcut card art.png1Quicksilver Flask of the Cheetah
Item Level: 100
If time is the most valuable currency, how do you make more of it?
divination card allowed obtaining high-level flasks too early, but gave a low-level move speed modifier.

Solution: Update its modifier to the highest movement speed modifier available, and raise the minimum drop level to 80.

Specifics:

  • The Shortcut Divination Card now awards a Quicksilver FlaskQuicksilver FlaskLasts 6.00 Seconds

    of the Cheetah, with an item level of 100. It now only drops in Maps at level 80 and above.

Crafting Recipes

Problem: With crafting recipes being removed from optional content in 3.16.0, the ability to unlock Socket crafting options was moved to far later in the game, when it is intended to be an early solution for guaranteed socket manipulation.

Solution: These crafting recipes have been moved out of Maps. They can now be found in The Mines, The Grand Arena and Kaom's Stronghold in Act 4.

User Interface Changes

  • The Map Stash Tab map series behaviour has been changed. You can once again set all of your Map Stash Tabs to old map series if you choose. All of your purchased Map Stash Tabs that were not explicitly set to an older map series will now be set to remove-only and replaced with empty current map series Map Stash Tabs when a new map series is released. You can now promote a remove-only Map Stash Tab to be active, provided you have an empty active Map Stash Tab for it to replace.
  • Added a section to the Map Stash Tab for storing Conqueror, Elder and Shaper Guardian Maps.
  • Added an option to visually hide your life and mana reservation, so your actual usable life and mana are scaled to fill your entire orbs. This can be found in the UI Options, under Gameplay.
  • Showing Advanced Mod Descriptions is not any option any more, it is now always on.
  • The Advanced Mod Descriptions of an item will now display the English name of base item types and Unique items when playing Path of Exile in languages other than English.

Problem:
StormfireStormfire
Opal Ring
Requires Level 80(15-25)% increased Elemental Damage(40-45)% increased Mana Regeneration Rate
+(20-30)% to Fire and Lightning Resistances
(8-12)% increased Burning Damage for each time you have Shocked a Non-Shocked Enemy Recently, up to a maximum of 120%
Adds (1-3) to (62-70) Lightning Damage to Hits against Ignited Enemies
Your Lightning Damage can Ignite
When your skin sloughs, and your blood cooks,
you'll wish the lightning strike had killed you.
's "increased Burning Damage for each time you have Shocked a Non-Shocked Enemy Recently" can be used with a number of specific mechanics to count as shocking a non-shocked enemy hundreds of times per second. This interaction provides problematic levels of damage.
Solution:
Update the Stormfire Unique Ring so the increased Burning Damage for each time you have Shocked a Non-Shocked Enemy Recently will be capped at 120%. To compensate, the base values of the damage increase will be raised to 8-12% increased Burning Damage. Existing items will be affected by this cap, but a Divine Orb will need to be used in order to update the increased Burning Damage values.
  • Removed - Showing Advanced Mod Descriptions is not an option any more, it is now always on.
