Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for Version 1.0.0 released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

Notes

  • Due to substantial balance changes, every existing character has been granted an optional full passive reset. To use this, click the "Reset all Passives" button on the passive skill screen. Note that you must use this before allocating or refunding any other points otherwise the option will go away.
  • The new Scion character class requires that you've rescued her in the Sceptre of God once before she can be used. This is an account-wide setting. We've enabled the Scion on any existing accounts that have finished Normal difficulty before.
  • Path of Exile's Terms of Use have been updated for release. When you log into the website or game client you will be able to read and accept them.

New Four-Month Challenge Leagues

  • Four month challenge leagues are a great opportunity for a fresh start. All your old characters and items are still present in the Standard and Hardcore leagues, but you're encouraged to join the new economies, complete challenges and climb the ladder!
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of eight new challenges! If you complete all of them, you'll receive an exclusive Domination/Nemesis challenge shirt. 61 players completed all the challenges in the last pair of four-month leagues.
  • Domination: A variety of powerful Shrines now spawn throughout Wraeclast, surrounded by large groups of monsters that are influenced by their power. These monsters receive substantial bonuses or are protected by their shrine's effects in some way. If you are able to tag the shrine, you receive these powers for a short time. It's often very risky to run in and try to claim the shrine, but it is a gamble that can pay off. One of the new challenges is to tag each of the shrine types.
  • Nemesis: Nemesis is a Hardcore league (characters who die are converted to Standard characters). Rare monsters have one guaranteed mod from the Nemesis Pool, which makes the fight substantially harder. One of the challenges is to kill a rare with each of the Nemesis mods.
  • The new challenge leagues have introduced five new base types of items - four new Flasks and a Ring.
  • The Prismatic RingPrismatic RingRequires Level 30+(8-10)% to all Elemental Resistances cannot drop as a base type in Domination and Nemesis league but it can be created with a new vendor recipe. Unique Prismatic Rings can still drop in these leagues.
  • There are six new Unique items that can drop in either challenge league, plus one that can only drop in Domination and one that can only drop in Nemesis.
  • The Item Quantity SupportItem Quantity SupportSupport

    Support Gem can not be obtained in these Challenge leagues.
  • Increased Item Quantity mods cannot spawn on Magic and Rare items in these leagues.

Content - Major

  • Added the Scion, Path of Exile's prestige character class. She is aligned with all three core attributes (Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence) and starts in the center of the passive tree. She's only available once you've unlocked her by playing through Normal difficulty and rescuing her. Existing accounts that have finished Normal difficulty before start with her unlocked.
  • Added six new world areas (in all three difficulty levels) across three new tilesets. There are three new quests.
  • Added a grand finale boss fight.
  • Added eight new end-game Maps including a new tier of level 78 maps.
  • Added 11 new Unique Items, three of which are designed by our community and eight which can only drop in the Domination and Nemesis leagues. Six of those eight appear in either challenge league, but there's also one that is exclusive to each league.
  • Added two new Halloween Microtransactions - Demon Hand Pet and Decapitation Helmet Skin. They're for exclusively for sale until the end of November 1.
  • Added six new monster types, three of which are exclusive to the new areas. The other three appear in previous areas also, such as the Cannibals who have replaced the Scavengers in early Act One.
  • Many existing monsters have received new abilities when added to the new world areas.
  • Added a new Rogue Exile - Xandro Blooddrinker, based on member of our community who won the "Well Dressed Exile Competition".
  • The Eternal Laboratory has been visually revamped and is now present in the Solaris Temple. In Normal and Cruel difficulties, it contains lore.
  • Added a new curse, Silence, that monsters can use on you.

  • Added a rebalanced Keystone Passive Skill - Avatar of Fire: 50% of your physical/lightning/cold damage is converted to fire damage. You can't deal non-fire damage.

Features - Major

  • Added an achievement system. Achievements are somewhat easier than Challenges and can be completed in any league. We expect to add at least one new achievement per two-weekly ongoing content patch.
  • Added new Player Profile pages on the website. These list your current/historic accomplishments in many categories (races, PvP, challenges, achievements) and allow you to pin the results you're proudest of.
  • The development team and Gold/Diamond/Exalted/Eternal/Ruler supporters are now listed in the game's credits. These are displayed upon completion of the game.
  • Waypoints, quest locations and story glyphs have been updated to have nicer graphical markers on the minimap.

Features - Guilds

  • We've added Guilds! To create one, use the Social screen. Guilds can initially hold 30 members, but more slots can be purchased.
  • There are three membership tiers - Leader, Office and Member. Leaders can change permissions. Officers can invite people to the guild.
  • There's a guild chat channel (bound to the & symbol). It spans across leagues.
  • Powerful guilds can obtain tags that appear next to their members' names in chat. This requires sacrificing a set of end-game Maps, each of which corresponds to a letter or symbol in the tag. Tags are unique and some symbols are much rarer than others.
  • You can purchase Premium Guild Stash Tabs which allow you to store your guild's wealth. You can set permissions for different tiers of members to view, add items and remove items.
  • Guild purchases are handled by the guild leader. Players can visit their guild page on pathofexile.com to donate points to their guild.
  • Guild Challenges are coming very soon!

Features - Player vs. Player

  • We've added a Capture the Flag PvP mode. It's available at Greust (and now Maramoa in Merciless) like normal PvP. Supported team sizes are 3v3 and 6v6.
  • Rapid-fire PvP tournaments will start with PvP Season One (which is approximately three weeks after Release). There may be some experimental ones before that. *More PvP balance and usability changes are on the way.
  • Dueling will be enabled very soon!

Features - Minor

  • Magic and rare monsters now have new effects to indicate their presence. Lights have been removed from many rare and unique monsters.
  • The Path of Exile logo on the title screen is now 3D.
  • Improved the visual appearance of metal in the graphics engine.
  • Changed the colour of the Twitch chat text to turquoise because Guild chat is grey.
  • The graphics engine has had several performance optimisations.
  • Players now cannot spend or reserve their last point of life with Blood Magic.

Content - Minor

  • Merciless PvP is now handled by Maramoa rather than Greust.
  • Some of the previously drop-only Skill and Support Gems are available from a new side quest. The new Trigger Gems are also available in this quest. The other new side quest offers utility flasks and rare items.
  • The "Sharp and Cruel" and "Sever the Hand" quests in Merciless now offer rare items as rewards, rather than Skill or Support Gems.
  • Some monsters now have "Far Shot" causing them to do less damage to closer targets and more damage to farther away targets.

  • The Slums waypoint has been moved to the Crematorium. If you previously had the Slums waypoint, you will be awarded the Crematorium waypoint.
