The Harbinger Challenge League

Challenge leagues are a great opportunity for a fresh start in a new economy. All of your old characters and items are still present in the Standard and Hardcore leagues, but you're encouraged to join the new leagues, complete challenges and demonstrate your mastery of Path of Exile!

  • With 3.0.0, there are Standard and Hardcore variations of the Harbinger challenge league available, as well as solo self-found variants of both. They have the same core mechanics and items.
  • In the Harbinger challenge league, mysterious Harbingers have appeared throughout Wraeclast. These Harbingers can create and command monsters from the area, and empower them with their own abilities.
  • Successfully defeating a Harbinger earns you currency shards of both existing currency types and new currency types that have never been seen before.
  • One of these currency types may lead you to the source of the Harbinger incursion. If you can halt their arrival, you'll find pierces of shattered unique items that can be arranged to form powerful Harbinger-summoning uniques.
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you will receive the Harbinger Glowing Eyes Effect. At 24, you will receive the Harbinger Crown Effect. When you complete your 36th challenge, you will receive the Harbinger Character Effect. These microtransactions are only obtainable in this league.
  • From the 19th challenge onwards and for every third challenge after that, you will receive pieces of the Harbinger Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Harbinger challenges you completed during the league.

Existing Characters and the New Content

  • Characters that had previously completed The Ribbon Spool in Merciless difficulty will have automatically completed all mandatory quests in The Fall of Oriath, and have immediate access to maps. These characters will not have any of the quest rewards from the mandatory quests in Acts 5 through 10, but can receive them by talking to the questgivers. No side quests will be automatically completed, and existing characters will have to receive and complete these quests to obtain the quest rewards.
  • Any characters that had completed Act 4 in Normal but had not completed The Ribbon Spool in Merciless have been returned to the end of Act 4.
  • All characters that had completed the Deal with the Bandits quest in Act 2 Normal now have the new version of their chosen reward. All bandit rewards from Cruel and Merciless no longer exist. Players who want to change their bandit reward choice have a one-time-only option to change it by talking to Eramir and taking one of his books. These books are character-locked, so if you decide later that you don't want to change your choice, you can get rid of the book by typing /destroy. This does not give you another opportunity to choose a bandit reward, so choose carefully!
  • All Prophecies, Hideouts, Forsaken Masters and Labyrinth trials have been maintained and work as normal.

Rebalance around Removal of Difficulty Levels

  • The Cruel and Merciless resistance penalties have been moved to the completion of Act 5 and the completion of Act 10 respectively. Once either act has been completed, these penalties affect your character in all game areas.
  • Vaal skill soul costs are increased by 50% of their base soul cost upon completion of Act 5, and increased by a total of 100% of their base soul cost upon completion of Act 10. Like the resistance penalties, these costs affect your character in all game areas.
  • There is a 5% experience penalty for deaths in Acts 6 through 10, level 5 and 6 Forsaken Master mission areas, and the Cruel and Merciless Labyrinths. There is a 10% experience penalty for deaths in areas reached through the Map device, level 7 and 8 Forsaken Master mission areas, and the Endgame Labyrinth. These replace the old Cruel and Merciless experience penalties, and are only active in those specific areas. Dying in any Act 5 area (or lower) after completion of Act 5 (or higher) will not incur an experience penalty.
  • The rewards from the quest Deal with the Bandits have been reworked. The rewards from the Cruel and Merciless versions of this quest have been removed. Depending on your choice, you now receive the following:
    • Helping Oak grants: 1% of Life Regenerated per second, 2% additional Physical Damage Reduction, 20% increased Physical Damage.
    • Helping Alira grants: 5 Mana Regenerated per second, +20% to Global Critical Strike Multiplier, +15% to all Elemental Resistances.
    • Helping Kraityn grants: 6% increased Attack and Cast Speed, 3% chance to Dodge Attacks, 6% increased Movement Speed.
    • Eramir grants 2 Passive Skill Points if you decide to kill all three.
  • Access to The Lord's Labyrinth has been reworked. Once unlocked, each Labyrinth can be accessed from the Aspirants' Plaza. Each of the four Labyrinths are named after the old difficulties: The Normal Labyrinth, the Cruel Labyrinth, the Merciless Labyrinth and the Endgame Labyrinth. The Cruel and Merciless Labyrinths now each require the completion of three trials, as well as the earlier Labyrinths. Access to the Endgame Labyrinth now requires completion of the three earlier Labyrinths.
  • Many Prophecies have been reworked for compatibility in Acts 5 and upwards. Prophecies are no longer bound to a specific difficulty and can be triggered and completed in any relevant area. Some Prophecies, such as several of the Pale Council chain steps, now take place in new locations.
  • The Ancient Rivalries chain can no longer be obtained from Navali. Existing chains can still be completed. The Hinekora's SightHinekora's Sight
    Onyx Amulet

    unique amulet now has a small chance to drop from any enemy spawned by a Prophecy.
  • The Act 3 quest Piety's Pets now rewards one passive skill point instead of two. The second passive point has been moved to a later quest.
  • Sarn's underground sewers have been extended and, following incidents of theft and vandalism, the exit into the Warehouse district has been permanently sealed.
  • The layout of The Marketplace and Catacombs in Act 3 have been modified to fit the new Warehouses-less structure.
  • The Achievements Breaking Free, Ascension, Vengeance have been renamed to Challenger, Leader and Lord, and are no longer gained by completing the story on various difficulties. Instead, these achievements are obtained by completing the first three Labyrinths.
  • The Achievements Fearless, Dauntless and Indomitable are no longer gained by completing the story on various difficulties in Hardcore. Instead, these achievements are obtained by completing the first three Labyrinths on Hardcore.
  • The Achievement End of the Nightmare no longer requires that you kill Malachai, the Nightmare with each class, and instead just require that you kill Malachai, the Nightmare once.
  • The Achievements All Ears, No Stone Unturned, Locomancer and No Loose Ends have been updated to work with the new act content.
  • The Achievement Cut Throat can now be earned by killing another player anywhere, not just in a Cut Throat race.

Labyrinth Balance

  • Access to the Labyrinth has been changed. To access the Labyrinth the first time, you must complete the ordinary 6 prerequisite trials.
  • To access the Cruel Labyrinth, you must complete the Normal Labyrinth and 3 prerequisite trials, and be at least level 40.
  • To access the Merciless Labyrinth, you must complete the Cruel Labyrinth and another 3 prerequisite trials, and be at least level 50.
  • Access to the Endgame Labyrinth requires that you complete the Merciless Labyrinth and the 6 Map trials, and be at least level 60.
  • All Labyrinths are now accessed via the Aspirants' Plaza. A new user interface allows you to select which Labyrinth you wish to enter. This UI shows which trials you have and have not completed.
  • Added a waypoint to the Aspirants' Plaza which can be used to access the Plaza from any other waypoint.
  • Simplified and shortened the layout of the Normal and Cruel Labyrinths.
  • Rewards throughout all versions of the Labyrinth have been reworked and should be more rewarding for the time invested.
  • Reading the Labyrinth Map will reveal what the next chamber accessed from the nearby door contains, as opposed to just the current chamber.
  • Killing Izaro now immediately disables the traps in his room.
  • Added new darkshrine effects designed specifically for the Labyrinth, all of which positively affect the run in some way. All of the previous darkshrine effects have been disabled.
  • Secret Passages and Argus can now only be found in the Merciless and Endgame Labyrinths.
  • Additional Treasure Keys can be found in special chests throughout the Labyrinth. There are two keys guaranteed to appear in every Labyrinth run.
  • Updated the description on the Offering to the Goddess to reflect that it is now used in the Aspirants' Plaza.

Many Izaro fight variations have been rebalanced or moved to later Labyrinth difficulties

  • Conduits now provide 50% less chance to freeze, shock and ignite to Izaro in the Normal Labyrinth, and 33% less in the Cruel and Merciless Labyrinths. The Endgame Labyrinth Conduit balance is unchanged.
  • Gargoyles now provide 33% less of a benefit to Izaro in the Normal, Cruel and Merciless Labyrinths. The Endgame Labyrinth Gargoyle balance is unchanged.
  • The Curse Fonts can no longer appear in the Normal Labyrinth and no longer apply a curse when slain in the Cruel Labyrinth. They are also less effective in the Cruel and Merciless Labyrinths. The Endgame Labyrinth Font balance is unchanged.
  • The Elemental Golems can no longer appear in the Normal Labyrinth, provide 50% less added damage in the Cruel Labyrinth, and 33% less added damage in the Merciless Labyrinth. The Endgame Labyrinth Elemental Golem balance is unchanged.
  • The Charge Disruptors can no longer appear in the Normal or Cruel Labyrinths. During this variant, Izaro now has a max charge count of 10, down from 15.
  • Removed the traps from Izaro's final room during the Normal Labyrinth.

Character Balance

  • Power Charges now grant 40% increased Critical Strike Chance per Charge (down from 50%).
  • Soul Eater will no longer grant reduced physical damage taken or elemental resistances for players who have it. Monsters and minions will still benefit from both reduced physical damage taken and elemental resistances per eaten soul.

The Silence curse now only affects the player's ability to cast spells and use warcries, and will not affect the ability for the player's totems to use those skills.

  • Chill and Shock are now handled differently:
  • Chill no longer slows enemies by a fixed amount for a variable duration. Now, Chill will slow enemies for a duration of 2 seconds by an amount based on the Cold damage dealt to the enemy. A purely Cold hit which removes 10% of an enemy's life will slow that enemy by 30% for 2 seconds, scaling linearly down to 0% at no Cold damage dealt.
  • Similarly, Shock no longer increases the damage taken by enemies by a fixed amount for a variable duration. Now, Shock will apply to enemies for a duration of 2 seconds and increase the amount of damage the shocked enemy takes based on the Lightning damage dealt to the enemy. A purely Lightning hit which removes 10% of an enemy's life will increase the damage that enemy takes by 50% for 2 seconds, scaling linearly down to 0% at no Lightning damage dealt. Shock is still only applied by critical strikes or based on your chance to shock.
  • Increased Effect of Chill and Increased Effect of Shock will increase the amount that each ailment affects whatever they are afflicting, up to their respective caps. In other words, a player with 100% Increased Effect of Chill will only have to remove 5% of a monster's life with Cold damage to slow them by the maximum 30%. Increasing the effect of Chill further will not slow the monster more, it will just make it easier to reach that 30% cap. The same is true if the player were to deal more cold damage.
  • Chilled ground has a fixed slowing effect of 10%.
  • Shocking ground increases damage taken by a fixed amount of 20%.
  • Other non-hit sources of Shock and Chill, unless otherwise specified in the debuff, will increase damage taken by 20% and slow by 10% respectively.

Damage Over Time Rework

  • Damage over Time has been reworked from the ground up, and 'double dipping' is now a thing of the past. To somewhat compensate for the loss of damage from the removal of 'double dipping', the damage of player Ignites, Poisons, and Bleeding has been greatly increased. Increases to these effects on the passive tree have been boosted as well, and additional Poison and Bleeding bonuses have been added to some weapon clusters, on top of their existing stats.
  • Bleeding is also being changed for players so that it does more damage while the target is stationary, making it a more versatile source of damage. Previously it dealt only one sixth its damage while the target was stationary, but now deals half damage instead. The ratio will remain unchanged for Bleeding caused by monsters, so you will still be able to stand still to mitigate the majority of monster Bleeding damage, but monsters you inflict Bleeding on won't be so lucky.
  • Skills calculate their Ignite, Poison or Bleed values as a separate damage value, taken straight from the base and added damage of the skill. This gives skills that deal fire damage a minimum and maximum Ignite Damage per Second value that is rolled on Ignites that the skill causes. Poison, Bleed and Ignite damage values are based on the base damage of the skill, and then affected by appropriate damage modifiers. Some damage modifiers affect both the hit and the Ignite, Poison or Bleed, while some only affect one.
  • Bleeding and Poison are now both considered 'Ailments'. This means their durations are only affected by increased bleeding/poison duration modifiers, and the new ailment duration modifier (they are not elemental ailments, so are not affected by the existing modifier to elemental ailments).
  • We now only refer to 'Ailments' rather than the longer 'Status Ailments'. The pre-existing 'Elemental Status Ailments' are now referred to as 'Elemental Ailments', and cases where 'Elemental' was left off because there were previously no non-elemental ailments have been corrected.
  • There are now separate reminder texts for Elemental Ailments and for Ailments.

    now have a special property of treating Bleeding and Poison respectively as Skill Effects, allowing more bonuses to their duration on top of modifiers to Ailment Duration.
  • The Character screen now displays values for Ignite, Bleeding and Poison damage per second for applicable skills.
  • Like previously, Bleeding, Poison and Ignite can't be inflicted if the hit contains no damage of an applicable type.
  • One consequence of this change is that incoming damage over time now only checks mitigation once (as opposed to once on the hit and once on the damage over time). This means that some enemies, such as those that can Ignite players, may deal more damage than they were previously.
  • The 'Elemental Damage with Weapons' stats that were found on the passive tree, items, and the Weapon Elemental Damage support have been replaced with 'Elemental Damage with Attack Skills'.
  • This has two notable effects:
    • These new stats now modify all of the damage dealt by Attack Skills, not just the attack damage. This means that Damage Over Time dealt by an attack skill, such as Ignite and Secondary Damage (including the explosion from Infernal Blow), will be affected as well. We've made this change to create a natural increase in Ignite damage for characters investing in Elemental Attacks, as a benefit for fire characters.
    • These stats now apply to Unarmed attacks. This was a necessary result of the change, but it also opens up new avenues for elemental unarmed attack builds.

Skill Balance

  • Traps and Mines are now invulnerable while they are arming and invulnerable while they are casting their skill. This means a trap thrown directly onto a monster who will detonate it cannot be destroyed before it detonates.
  • All minions other than Raging Spirits deal more damage at lower levels. This damage bonus levels out to no change at minion level 70 for minions other than Raised Zombies and Summoned Skeletons. (Minion level is based on the level requirement of their gem).
