Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 3.3.0 released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

The Incursion 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 3.3.0, there are Standard and Hardcore, and Solo Self-Found Standard and Hardcore, variations of the Incursion challenge league available. They have the same core mechanics and items.
  • In the Incursion Challenge League, explorer Alva Valai is searching for the ancient Vaal treasure temple of Atzoatl. Travel back in time to discover the location of the temple and change its history to maximise your reward.
  • Each time you encounter Alva in the wilderness, she can open a time portal, allowing you to visit the Temple of Atzoatl during its construction. Your brief visit can be extended by laying waste to its inhabitants. These visits allow Alva to learn its location in the present day, and allow you to influence its contents and reap its rewards.
  • After 11 Temporal Incursions, Alva will have narrowed down the present-day location of the Temple of Atzoatl. Together, you can explore the jungle, discover the temple and claim its treasures. Each type of room in the temple has its own unique risks and rewards.
  • Your actions in the past have significant consequences. By killing the Vaal Architects who guide the temple's construction, you can influence what rooms appear in the present-day version. During your Incursions, you may find keys that can be used to unlock doors in the past, allowing access to additional rooms in the future.
  • By traveling into the past and influencing the Vaal Architects to upgrade the rooms they are building, you can access even greater treasures. Many upgraded rooms come with rewards worthy of the significant danger they introduce into the temple.
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you will receive the Incursion Bandana. At 24, you will receive the Incursion Cloak. When you complete your 36th challenge, you will receive the Incursion Portal 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 Incursion Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Incursion challenges you completed during the league.

Major New Content and Features

  • Added a new Strength gem - Vaal Earthquake: Smash the ground, dealing damage in an area and cracking the earth. The crack will erupt in a powerful aftershock after a short delay. Your steps will deal damage around you for a duration, cracking the earth if the previous cracks have erupted.
  • Added a new Intelligence gem - Vaal Blight: Apply a powerful debuff which deals chaos damage over time to enemies around. Then apply two additional layers in a larger area, growing greatly in size each time. Enemies are also substantially hindered, slowing their movement for a shorter secondary duration.
  • Added a new Dexterity gem - Vaal Blade Vortex: Create an independently-moving vortex of ethereal blades which last for a duration. The vortex moves towards nearby enemies, repeatedly damaging enemies that it passes through.
  • Added a new Strength/Intelligence gem - Vaal Impurity of Fire: Casts an aura that reduces fire damage taken and provides ignite immunity to you and nearby allies, and makes hits against nearby enemies ignore their fire resistance.
  • Added a new Dexterity/Intelligence gem - Vaal Impurity of Ice: Casts an aura that reduces cold damage taken and provides freeze and chill immunity to you and nearby allies, and makes hits against nearby enemies ignore their cold resistance.
  • Added a new Intelligence gem - Vaal Impurity of Lightning: Casts an aura that reduces lightning damage taken and provides shock immunity to you and nearby allies, and makes hits against nearby enemies ignore their lightning resistance.
  • Added a new Dexterity/Intelligence gem - Charged Traps Support: Supported trap skills have a chance to gain frenzy and power charges when your traps are triggered by an enemy. Also grants increased trap throwing speed per frenzy charge and added critical strike multiplier for traps per power charge.
  • Added a new Dexterity/Intelligence gem - Flamethrower Trap: Throw a trap that releases a number of flames in different directions around it when triggered. The flames last for a duration, rotating around the trap and repeatedly dealing damage. Burning enemies are dealt more damage.
  • Added a new Dexterity/Intelligence gem - Seismic Trap: Throw a trap which, once triggered, repeatedly releases a number of waves for a duration. Each wave deals damage in a series of small bursts in a line, ending with a larger burst. Modifiers to cast speed affect how frequently it releases waves.
  • Added a new Dexterity/Intelligence gem - Explosive Trap: Throw a trap that creates a large explosion when triggered, dealing spell damage in an area. A number of smaller explosions occur around this area in quick succession after the first.
  • Added a new Intelligence/Dexterity gem - Siphoning Trap: Throw a trap that applies debuff beams to a number of nearby enemies for a duration. The beams chill and deal cold damage over time. A beam is also applied to you, granting life and mana regeneration based on the number of debuff beams affecting enemies.
  • Added a new Intelligence/Dexterity gem - Lightning Spire Trap: Throw a trap which, once triggered, will repeatedly strike multiple areas around it for a duration, dealing lightning damage. Modifiers to cast speed affects how frequently it strikes. Has a higher chance to critically strike shocked enemies.
  • Added 31 new unique items, 4 of which were designed by our supporters.
  • Added 2 new Rogue Exiles, based on submissions by competition winners.
  • Added 22 new Divination Cards.
  • Added new corrupted implicits which can appear on items corrupted by Vaal OrbsVaal OrbStack Size: 10Corrupts an item, modifying it unpredictablyRight click this item then left click an item to corrupt it. Corrupted items cannot be modified again.
    Shift click to unstack.
    , bringing the total to approximately 176. Many of the old implicits were buffed or moved to different items, and some were disabled. Generally, corrupted implicits are now more powerful on average.
  • Added a new feature - Always Attack Without Moving: This feature prevents your character from moving while using skills where this is toggled on, as if you are holding down your "Attack in Place" key. This can be toggled on and off of individual skills in the skill bar. This feature can also be used on movement skills to prevent the skill from "namelocking" (ie. locking onto an enemy).

Minor New Content and Features

  • Added 39 new Labyrinth Enchantments for existing skills, and 43 for new skills. Enchantments for existing skills which have undergone significant reworking may not appear any more due to mechanical changes making them nonfunctional, such as enchantments which modify the cooldown of trap skills. Existing versions of these enchantments will now grant increased damage with that skill at the same value.
  • Added 6 dangerous new Nemesis mods.
  • Added 8 new Grandmasters to the Hall of GrandmastersHall of Grandmasters

Namely, additional traps can only be thrown if the skill has at least one extra trap cooldown stockpiled, and only as many additional traps will be thrown as there are cooldowns stockpiled.

If you only have two cooldowns stockpiled and attempt to throw three Seismic Traps via the Multitrap support, you will only throw two traps.

Passive Tree Balance

  • There were two primary goals with the passive tree adjustments: Provide more power to ignite builds without providing more power to other burning damage builds, and rebalance trap and mine passives. To that end, most of the reductions to trap and mine passives occur to trap throwing speed and mine placement speed. This was to bring them more closely in line with cast speed. Trap cooldown recovery was also targeted, as many bread-and-butter traps no longer have cooldowns, and the traps introduced in this patch are strong enough to warrant their longer cooldowns.
  • To better enable trap builds from level 1, the Shadow's starting area has received numerous changes.
  • The first two passives of the Shadow's top starting path now both grant increased damage (rather than increased elemental damage).
  • The top passives of the Shadow's starting top cluster now grant increased trap and mine damage (rather than increased cast speed).
  • The bottom passives of the Shadow's starting bottom cluster now grant increased cast speed as well as attack speed.
  • Trickery (near the Shadow's start) now grants increased damage (rather than increased elemental damage).
  • The Saboteur cluster (near the Shadow) has moved even closer to the Shadow. One of its small passives now grants 4% increased trap throwing speed and 4% increased mine laying speed (down from 8%).
  • The passives leading to Clever Construction on the trap and mine wheel near the shadow now each grant 4% increased trap throwing speed and 4% increased mine laying speed (down from 5%).
  • The far side of the trap and mine wheel near the Shadow has a new notable - Devastating Devices: 50% increased critical strike chance with traps and mines, 40% increased trap trigger area of effect, and 40% mine detonation area of effect.
  • The passive skills on either side of Devastating Devices have completely changed. One grants +15% to trap and mine critical strike multiplier, the other grants 20% increased critical strike chance with traps and mines.
  • The Master Sapper cluster (previously near the Ranger) has been moved between the Ranger and the Shadow. It now has 4 passives (down from 6), and grants a total of 68% increased trap damage (down from 92%), 4% increased trap throwing speed (down from 12%), and 20% increased trap trigger area of effect (down from 40%).
  • The Expeditious Munitions cluster has moved where Saboteur used to be. It now grants 20% increased trap damage (up from 15%) and 8% increased trap throwing speed (down from 15%). The two passives leading to the notable now each grant 4% increased trap throwing speed (down from 6%).
  • Hasty Reconstruction (between the Witch and Shadow) now grants 10% increased cooldown recovery speed for throwing traps (down from 20%) and the passive immediately before it now grants 5% increased cooldown recovery speed for throwing traps (down from 10%).
  • Celestial Judgement's (near the Templar) elemental resistance penetrations are now 5% (up from 2%).
  • Heart of Flame (near the Witch) now causes damage to penetrate 6% fire resistance (up from 3%). The passives leading to it now grant a total of 57% increased fire damage (up from 46%).
  • Breath of Flames (right next to Heart of Flame) now grants 20% increased ignite duration (up from 10%), 20% increased burning damage (down from 30%), 20% chance to ignite (up from 5%) and 20% increased fire damage (up from not giving any at all). The three passives leading to it now give a total of 20% increased burning damage (down from 40%), and 30% increased fire damage (previously none).
  • Heart of Thunder (also near the Witch) now causes damage to penetrate 6% lightning resistance (up from 3%). The passives leading to it now grant a total of 57% increased lightning damage (up from 48%).
  • Breath of Lightning (next to Heart of Thunder) now grants 20% increased lightning damage (up from 12%). The three passives leading to it now each grant 10% increased lightning damage (up from 8%).
  • Heart of Ice (guess where!) now causes damage to penetrate 6% cold resistance (up from 3%). The passives leading to it now grant a total of 57% increased cold damage (up from 48%).
  • Breath of Rime (Near the Duelist. Kidding! It's next to Heart of Ice) now grants 20% increased cold damage (up from 12%). The three passives leading to it now each grant 10% increased cold damage (up from 8%).
  • Holy Fire (between the Witch and Templar) now grants 40% increased burning damage (down from 60%), 20% increased fire damage (previously none), and 15% chance to ignite (previously none). The passives leading to it which previously granted 20% increased burning damage now grant 12% increased burning damage and 8% increased fire damage. The passive next to Holy Fire which grants 5% chance to ignite now also grants 8% increased fire damage.

Ascendancy Balance

  • Each of the Saboteur's passives which previously granted increased elemental damage now grant increased trap and mine damage instead.
  • Each of the Saboteur's small passives which previously granted 8% increased trap throwing speed now grant 5% increased trap throwing speed.
  • Each of the Saboteur's small passives which previously granted 8% increased mine laying speed now grant 5% increased mine laying speed.
  • The Saboteur's Perfect Crime now grants 10% increased cooldown recovery speed for throwing traps (down from 20%).
  • The Saboteur's Chain Reaction now grants 15% increased cooldown recovery speed for throwing traps (down from 30%).

Item Balance

  • The Merciless and Eternal Labyrinth Arc enchantments that grant additional chains now grants +1 to chain from the Merciless Labyrinth (down from 2) and +2 chains in the Eternal Labyrinth (down from +3). Existing enchantments won't change unless a Blessed Orb is used, so don't do that.
  • The Merciless and Eternal Labyrinth Bear Trap enchantments that grant increased cooldown recovery speed now grant half as much. Existing versions won't change unless a Blessed Orb is used.
  • The Merciless and Eternal Labyrinth Charged Dash enchantments that grant added radius to the skill's final area of effect now grants +4 radius from the Merciless Labyrinth (down from +6) and +6 radius from the Eternal Labyrinth (down from +9). Existing versions won't change unless a Blessed Orb is used, but why on earth would you do that?

  • Disabled the "Avoid Stun While Casting Storm Burst" enchantment from appearing.
  • Disabled the "Reduced Ball Lightning Projectile Speed" enchantment from appearing.

Map Balance

  • Once you have completed 20 maps while the Elder and its guardians are on your atlas without actually defeating any of them, there is a chance for the Elder and its guardians to disappear and remove the Elder-influence from the maps they were on.
