A large portion of relevant modules/templates have now been switched to cargo. Various usages of SMW throughout the wiki need to be replaced by the new functions, in particular item tables. If some pages do not show up but contain no errors, please null-edit them. To see how you can help with the port check out Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/SMW_migration (and leave a comment on the talk page if you have questions).

Hexproof is a modifier that prevents curses from applying to monsters but can be bypassed under certain conditions.

It is not to be confused with curse immunity, which is a different, absolute modifier.[1]



Version history

Version Changes
  • Fixed a bug where Hexproof monsters were immune to curses, rather than being Hexproof.
  • Monsters and maps with the Hexproof prefix now grant the Hexproof keyword.
  • Hexproof prevents curses applying, but can be bypassed under certain conditions.
  • Currently only one unique item being added in 2.3.0 will bypass Hexproof, but this power may show up from other sources in the future.
  • Hexproof does not affect curse reduction that unique monsters can have, and will allow for potential Curse Immunity in the future that is absolute and not keyworded as Hexproof.
