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.

Vaal Burning Arrow is a vaal attack that fires an exploding arrow with increased chance to ignite.

If Vaal Burning Arrow passes through an enemy it hits before hitting the target area (such as through Pierce and chain), then it will explode both at the target area, and on the enemy it passes through.

Version History

Version Changes
1.2.0c
  • Now does 160% of attack damage, up from 130%. This fixes an accidental reduction of skill damage that occurred during the Burning Arrow change in 1.2.0.
1.1.0d
  • Vaal Skill soul counts were initially balanced for Merciless difficulty, where there are more monsters. We want them to be easier to use in Normal and Cruel difficulty. We have halved the number of souls required for each skill. In Cruel difficulty, skills require 50% more souls to uses. In Merciless difficulty, they require 100% more (which is the same as before the patch).
1.1.0
  • Introduced to the game.
