Consider helping out in updating the wiki for 3.8.0 - see Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/3.8.0.

Game data updates to the wiki have been started.


A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

An Undying Evangelist with proximity shield

Proximity Shield is a defensive monster ability, which prevents all damage originating from sources outside its radius.

Monsters inside a proximity shield take no damage from projectile or other ranged attacks unless they are fired from inside the shield. Minions, traps, totems and mines are a good way to get around proximity shields as they count as their own source of damage, allowing a player to damage the monsters without going inside the shield themselves. Proximity shield also does not protect against damage over time, even if the hit that applied it originated from outside the shield.

Players can gain the protection of Proximity Shield by raising a monster with this ability as a spectre.
