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.

We are currently performing an upgrade to our software. This upgrade will bring MediaWiki from version 1.31 to 1.33. While the upgrade is being performed on your wiki it will be in read-only mode. For more information check here.

Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 2.5.0b released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

  • The chance of Essences to occur in maps has been increased by around 50%.
  • Fixed an issue where the engine would stall while loading some shaders causing a performance stutter for some machines with certain character builds.
  • The hover boxes on Breach chests have been increased in size so that they are easier to click on.
  • Non-rare Breach monsters no longer drop maps. All Breach monsters in Breach domains will still drop maps. Because Breaches have so many monsters, these monsters being able to drop maps completely throws off our normal map drop balance. The Breaches are already extremely rewarding, and do not reduce the number of maps that you find from the rest of the area.
  • Breach monsters now have a lower chance to spawn Beyond portals.
  • The names on the Upgrade Breach Unique Items challenge have been corrected to reflect changes made before the 2.5.0 release.
  • Added changes for Summoned Skeletons which were patchnoted for 2.5.0 but not included in the patch.
