Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 3.7.0 released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

The Legion 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!
  • In the Legion Challenge League, you will encounter monoliths as you journey across Wraeclast. Touching one of these monoliths will reveal ancient armies frozen in the midst of battle.
  • Shatter the magical bonds that keep these warriors locked in time, but do so quickly, because the monolith's revealing effects are brief. When the effect ends, the soldiers you released will continue their battle, and even turn their violent attention to you. Defeating these soldiers in combat will earn you great rewards and, if you're lucky, splinters you may later use to access the Domain of Timeless Conflict.
  • By combining your splinters into Emblems, and placing two or more Emblems in the map device, you can visit the Domain of Timeless Conflict. Here you will witness and battle the armies whose Emblems you have used, and even their powerful Generals.
  • Discover powerful new jewels that drastically alter your Passive Skill Tree from each of the 5 legions, as well as new Unique items, and a brand new type of item: Incubators. Incubators can be applied to any equipment, and will remain there until you've slain enough monsters to reveal what lies inside. There are many different kinds of Incubator to find!
  • With 3.7.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Legion challenge league available. They have the same core mechanics and items. You can create private league versions of these leagues, with mods that make the game harder.
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you will receive the Monolith Crown and Monolith Crown Attachment. When you reach 24 challenges, you will receive the Monolith Aura effect. At 36 challenge completed you'll receive the Monolith Wings. 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 Legion Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Legion challenges you completed during the league.

  • Added 15 new keystones to the Passive Skill Tree, visible only when you have one of the new unique jewels introduced in Legion socketed.

Minor New Content and Features

  • Improved the early-game experience. Fights in the first three Acts will be tougher but more responsive, involved and dynamic. This includes fights against basic monsters!
  • You can now queue skills. By using one skill while another skill is in progress, that skill will be used immediately after the current skill has finished.
  • Added new functionality to the Map Stash Tab which displays which tiers and maps have Elder or Shaper influence, or an Atlas Objective.
  • Rage is now displayed along the top-left of the Mana orb, so you can see exactly how much Rage you have at any given time.
  • Added sounds for various error cases, such as attempting to equip an invalid item.
  • Smoothed the transition between resolutions while Dynamic Resolution is enabled.
  • Changes to the size of characters now occur smoothly, rather than snapping between the two sizes.
  • Improved the localisation of server messages.
  • Improved performance of various game elements, with a particular focus on high-intensity visual effects.
  • Continued to incrementally improve the sound, art, effects and environments.

Melee Rebalance

  • We've made massive, sweeping (excuse the pun) changes to melee combat. Many of these are specific to skills, but some are broad and affect all aspects of melee combat (and combat in general):
  • Hit Multiple Enemies: Every attack -- even Glacial Hammer -- can now hit multiple targets by default. Previously, an attack would look at targets in melee range in front of your character and choose one. Now it chooses all of them that the attack physically passes through. Note that this is not "area of effect", "area damage" or "melee splash".
  • Animation Cancelling: You can now interrupt a skill with movement or a movement skill. If you use a skill (any skill, not just an attack), you can now interupt the animation before it finishes playing. If you do so before the point in the animation that damage is dealt (or a projectile is created etc...) you will not deal damage. There is a small window before this point where you will be 'locked into' the animation until the contact point, so you won't accidentally prevent yourself from dealing damage by being overzealous with your movement. You won't be able to use any other skills if you previously cancelled an animation after the point it would deal damage until that animation would have finished playing, meaning you can't use animation cancelling to artificially speed up your rate of attack. You can use a skill immediately after cancelling a previous one if it didn't have a chance to deal damage (or produce a projectile etc...).
  • Directional Attacks: Many monsters now deal damage in a specific area in front of them when they attack, meaning you can avoid taking damage by sidestepping or moving away. Previously, monsters would deal damage to their target, even if they had moved to the side. The area for most of these attacks is a 120 degree cone in front of them.
  • Attack Signalling: We've improved a lot of enemy attack signalling, slowing down the initial windup but speeding up the strike, giving you an opportunity to respond with an appropriate movement or skill use. This is particularly the case for 'old' monsters.
  • Targeting: We've made enormous improvements to how skills target enemies in groups which will result in a more natural, do-what-you-want-it-to experience. This is the culmination of many, many small user experience improvements.
  • Attack Range Signalling: Player attacks now accurately signal their damage range via skill effects and trails. Sources which increase your attack range or area of effect with an attack will be reflected in the attack's visual effect.
  • Fluidity: We've made a lot of changes to how animations work to allow changing targets while chaining attacks back-to-back to look and feel much less clunky. A dual-wielding character will alternate attacks in a way that feels much more natural than previously, and will make your off-hand weapon choice more important. We've also updated pathing, which should allow for much smoother movements with your character.
  • Accuracy: Accuracy is no longer capped to a 95% chance to hit. With enough accuracy, an enemy will never be able to evade an attack, so you will no longer have lone surviving monster frustratingly taunting you (unless you didn't get enough accuracy!).
  • Blocking Enemies: Enemies with shields can block attacks, but will only prevent a large portion of the incoming damage, rather than all of it. When an enemy blocks an attack, an effect will play.
  • Better Feedback: New effects and sounds allow you to more clearly identify who you have and have not hit with your attacks.

Character Balance

  • Melee damage is now treated as having dealt +25% damage for the sake of calculating Stuns.
  • Elemental and Chaos damage is treated as having dealt -25% damage for the sake of stuns. This is additive with the Melee damage stun bonus, so a purely Elemental or Chaos or mixed non-physical Melee hit will see no change to previous Stun behaviour.
  • As mentioned above, your chance to hit enemies with an attack is no longer capped to 95%. With enough accuracy, you can guarantee that every attack will hit.
  • In light of changes to melee combat (see above), the formula which turns Accuracy Rating into Chance to Hit has been changed. In general, it will be easier to hit and be hit.
  • Effects that split incoming damage from specific damage types across mana and life (such as Mind of the CouncilMind of the Council
    Harlequin Mask
    Quality: +20%
    Evasion: (549-596)
    Energy Shield: (161-193)
    Requires Level 57, 64 Dex, 64 Int(230-260)% increased Evasion and Energy Shield
    +(15-20) to maximum Energy Shield
    (20-30)% increased maximum Mana
    10% chance to Shock
    +20% chance to be Shocked
    30% of Lightning Damage is taken from Mana before Life
    Attack Skills have Added Lightning Damage equal to 6% of maximum Mana
    Lose 3% of Mana when you use an Attack Skill
    You think we do not know.
    We know all that you think.
    ) now also do this for Damage over Time effects of specific types. Previously such effects could only split damage from hits.
  • Unarmed attack range of player characters has increased by 2.
  • Projectiles are now treated as having a smaller collision size with regards to terrain than monsters. This should alleviate the frustration of casting Freezing Pulse through a doorway and watching your projectiles vanish before hitting anything.

  • All melee attacks now apply a visual to your weapon as you swing to better illustrate your attack's range.
  • Most, if not all, attacks and spells also now accurately signal their area of effect, including any increases or reductions.
  • Minion targeting is now less weird if using a movement skill while also channelling.

Specific Skills Quite a few melee skills have had their base attack speed lowered slightly and their base damage raised. This is due to the increase in effective clear speed from the introduction of animation cancelling, whereby you can start moving to the next pack of monsters before your attack would otherwise have ended.

Passive Tree Balance

We've added a lot of new passives to the passive tree in this patch. Rather than list out what each of the dozens of new passives contains, we've listed out the cluster notable names below. We've also changed virtually every weapon cluster to some degree. To examine these changes in detail, please keep an eye out in the community for passive tree tools once we give the passive tree data out.

Listed below are the new additions and removals:

Ascendancy Balance

Our main focus during this patch was to ensure that the primary melee ascendancies -- those of the Marauder and Duelist -- had the appropriate tools to keep up in the current metagame.

Slayer

  • Headsman: Now grants 10% more damage if you've killed recently (from 20%). No longer increases area of effect by 20% if you've killed recently, instead granting 20% more damage against unique enemies.
  • Bane of Legends: No longer grants Onslaught for 20 seconds when you kill a rare or unique enemy, instead granting 20% increased attack speed for 20 seconds when you kill a rare or unique enemy. Now also grants 20% increased movement speed for 20 seconds when you kill an enemy (of any rarity).
  • The small passives leading to Headsman and Bane of Legends now grant 10% increased attack damage, rather than 14% increased damage with two handed weapons.
  • Overwhelm: Has been completely reworked. Now sets base critical strike chance for attacks with weapons to 8%, grants +10% to critical strike multiplier per nearby enemy up to a maximum of +100%, and causes nearby enemies to have -30% to their critical strike multiplier.
  • The small passive leading to Overwhelm now grants 10% increased attack damage and 10% increased critical strike chance (previously granted 14% increased damage with two handed weapons and 5% reduced enemy stun threshold).
  • Endless Hunger: Now prevents you from being stunned while leeching.
  • Brutal Fervour: No longer grants 100% increased total recovery per second from life leech. Now grants 15% increased attack speed while leeching, 6% reduced damage taken while leeching, and 50% increased attack damage while leeching (from 30%).
  • The small passives leading to Endless Hunger and Brutal Fervour now grant 10% increased attack damage, rather than 14% increased damage with two handed weapons.
  • Impact: No longer grants melee splash to single-target melee attacks (because they aren't a thing anymore), or 20% increased area of effect. Now grants 50% increased global accuracy rating, +2 to melee weapon and unarmed attack range, and 5% increased area of effect per enemy killed recently, up to 50%.
  • The small passive leading to Impact now grants 10% increased attack damage, rather than 14% increased damage with two handed weapons.
  • Added a new Slayer notable - Masterful Form: Grants 50% increased endurance charge duration, 50% increased frenzy charge duration and sets your maximum endurance charges equal to your maximum frenzy charges. Inb4 Pacifism Ahn's meme builds!
  • The small passive leading to Masterful Form grants 10% increased attack damage, 10% increased endurance charge duration and 10% increased frenzy charge duration.

  • Unstoppable Hero: Now grants 30% increased attack damage (rather than melee damage) while you have fortify.
  • Master of Metal: Now causes you and nearby allies to deal 6 to 12 added physical damage for each impale on the enemy (from 4 to 8).
  • The small passives leading to First to Strike, Last to Fall, Unstoppable Hero, and Fortitude now each grant 10% increased attack damage (previously 14% increased melee damage). They no longer grant increased ailment damage.

Juggernaut

  • Unyielding: Now grants 8% increased damage per endurance charge (from 5%) and 6% increased area of effect per endurance charge (from 5%).

It no longer grants 2% of attack damage leeched as life and mana if you've killed recently.

Item Balance

  • Many low-level melee weapon basetypes have had their base attack speed raised and their damage lowered to compensate.
  • The following staves can no longer roll spell-based mods such as added damage for spells or increased spell damage. Their base attack speeds have been slightly increased, and their damage decreased to compensate. These changes affect all existing versions of these basetypes, though they will not affect the mods those items currently have. Also some level requirements have changed I guess?

  • The values on Life, Mana and Energy Shield modifiers on Abyssal Jewels have been reduced, and the top tiers made rarer relative to lower tiers. The top roll for these modifiers is now 40 (from 50). Divining existing jewels will update them to these new values, so don't do that unless you're hoping to create one of those 'viral videos' that are all the rage these days.
  • Added damage of all types on Abyssal Jewels has also been lowered, by about 30% at the top end, scaling down to lower tiers. Top tiers of these have also become rarer. This is true for all top-tier added damage modifiers on Abyssal Jewels, including caster and summoner ones.
  • The top two tiers of added elemental damage for melee weapons have had their damage increased by about 10% for tier 2 and 40% for tier 1.
  • All added damage modifiers on two-handed weapons are now 160% of the values of their one-handed counterparts. This takes the new higher values at the top end into account -- even they are 160% of their one-hand versions.
  • Added new top-tier modifiers for Added Fire Damage, Added Cold Damage, and Added Lightning Damage. These are available on items with an ilevel of 82 or greater.
  • The highest tier added elemental damage modifiers for weapons are now rarer. It will be approximately as difficult to get 3 tier-1 elemental damage rolls as the three tier-1 physical damage rolls.
  • Weapon-specific increased physical damage modifiers on Jewels now apply to all damage types, not just physical. This affects all existing jewels with these modifiers. The values have not changed.
  • Reduced the amount of Energy Shield granted by Synthesised Implicits on Body Armours, Shields, Helmets, Gloves and Boots. This won't affect you unless you decide to use a Blessed Orb, in which case it definitely will affect you.
  • The hybrid increased physical damage and accuracy modifiers now grant more accuracy. Existing items with these modifiers can be updated with a Divine Orb.
  • The pure accuracy modifiers now grant more accuracy than previously, and there are fewer tiers. Existing items with these modifiers can be updated with a Divine Orb.
  • The Immortal Call enchantment which previously granted a chance to not consume endurance charges now grants increased Immortal Call duration per endurance charge consumed. This affects items that had the previous enchantment.

Unique Item Balance

  • The following items no longer drop outside of the Legion challenge leagues. Versions dropped in Legion will have new modifiers and balance which we won't be spoiling here, barring changes that affect existing versions, which will be outlined below. The items are: Rathpith GlobeRathpith Globe

World Changes

Over Path of Exile's life, we have slowly shifted more power to earlier in the game. For example, you now get a strong support gem on the starting beach, rather than getting your first in Merveil's Cavern. As a result, the difficulty of the early acts slowly became easier and easier. In this patch, we have made targeted efforts to bring some of the difficulty back to the first three acts.

  • Acts 1, 2 and 3 have seen significant improvements to monster and boss encounters. We won't ruin the fun of discovering them, so be careful out there!
  • You'll no longer hear a crying woman in Act 7 Crossroads tempting you towards nonexistent story glyphs.

Monster Changes

  • Magic monsters now have 50% more life at level 1, up to 75% more life at level 68 and above.
  • Rare monsters now have 33% more life at level 1, up to 100% more life at level 68 and above. They now grant 54% more experience.
  • Tormented Spirits are now more likely to appear near a rare or unique monster than not.
  • Monsters which can block attacks and spells now say so beneath their nameplate. Such monsters do not block all damage when they block.
  • Rogue Exiles no longer sound identical to their player Exile counterparts.

NPC Changes

  • Swapped Navali's Seek Prophecy and View Your Prophecies talk options to prevent misclicking while selling.

Incursion Changes

  • It now requires 12 separate Incursions to enter the Temple of Atzoatl in the present (up from 11). This gives you an extra attempt to upgrade or change a room before you enter the Temple with Alva.

Betrayal Changes

  • Betrayal Fortification encounters are now prioritised over Shrines during level creation, meaning you should more reliably get the Betrayal encounters you are expecting.
  • You'll now encounter a new monster type in some Fortification encounters.

Strongbox Changes

  • The Maelström Cell unique strongbox now also drops Divination Cards that give Shaper or Elder items as well as cards of a certain stack size.

Azurite Mine and Sulphite Changes

  • Improved the way Delve map layouts are generated, to allow for longer delves when necessary.
  • The Ancient Wraith and Ancient Suffering monsters can now be desecrated while in the appropriate Delve area.

Prophecy Changes

  • Items that drop exclusively from Prophecy-generated monsters can now drop from all Prophecy-generated monsters, rather than a small subset.

Map Changes

  • The Atlas of Worlds has been shuffled. Most maps have changed tier and location within the Atlas.
  • You can now unlock a special fifth slot in the Map Device.
  • Added 3 new Tormented Spirits, found via Sextants.
  • Added 2 new Shrines, found via Sextants.
  • You no longer have to pay Vaal Orbs equal to the cost in Chaos orbs to apply Zana's crafting modifiers to corrupted maps.
  • Map bosses at lower map tiers have slightly more life, tapering to no difference at map tier 15 and above.
  • Shaper's Strongholds now always contain additional monsters and Anomalies, as well as a bonus effect at random.
  • Shaper-influenced maps now always contain additional monsters.
  • Monster packs in Shaper-influenced maps with Anomalies now have a 20% chance to spawn with an Anomaly (down from 50%). These Anomalies now spawn a pack of monsters on death, which grant items and experience when slain.
  • Agents of the Void from Shaper-influenced maps now spawn monsters on death, which grant items and experience when slain.
  • White- and yellow-tier Shaper-influenced maps can no longer spawn Shaper clones which attack you. Red-tier Shaper-influenced maps now have a 25% chance for the Shaper clone encounters, in addition to other Shaper-influence mechanics.
  • Elder-influenced maps now always contain additional monsters.
  • White- and yellow-tier Elder-influenced maps can no longer spawn Elder slam tentacles. Red-tier Elder-influenced maps now have a 25% chance for the Elder slam tentacles, in addition to other Elder-influence mechanics.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where Physical Damage would not bypass Energy Shield if that Energy Shield was protecting Mana.
  • Fixed a bug where you could become trapped after defeating the Terrace map boss.
  • Fixed a bug where you could prevent Tukohama from spawning one of his beam totems until the end of the fight, making it unkillable.
  • Fixed a bug where the crafted mod "Trigger a Socketed Spell when you use a Skill" wasn't triggering if the skill you use created a trap, mine or totem.
  • Fixed a bug where, when viewed with the detailed mod descriptions, some mods were given a worse tier than others in the same family because the mods provided their effect in the form of a negative value (such as reduced attribute requirements).
  • Fixed a bug where the Frozen Trail unique jewel would cause Frostbolt projectiles to continue even after being detonated by Vortex.
  • Fixed a bug where maps that were dropped or generated as Magic or Rare and were on a Shaped or Elder map basetype did not take into account the new map tier when rolling mods. This also affected maps created by Zana for her missions. Any rerolling of mods did take the correct map tier into account.
  • Fixed a bug where, when encountering Zana in a map, she would use the quest state of the first person to talk to her in a party, rather than the Map's owner, when generating her pool of maps to pick from.
  • Fixed a bug where the Summon Phantasm Support would cause non-minion skills to be counted as minion skills for cases such as Null's Inclination's "Trigger Socketed Minion Skills on Kill" mod.
  • Fixed a bug where Craiceann's Tectonic Slam skill got gigantic.
  • Fixed a bug where Essence Drain, Soulrend, Bane and Contagion were all bypassing PvP scaling when triggered from a trap or mine.
  • Fixed a bug where the Adrenaline buff from War Banner would end early if you were playing a Juggernaut and your Endurance Charges expired.
  • Fixed a bug where channelled skills would not update their animation speed if the character's attack or cast speed changed while channelling.
  • Fixed a bug where support gems with level requirement restrictions (such as Cast when Damage Taken) would change the restriction when socketed in an item that granted additional levels to the gem.
  • Fixed a longstanding bug where Ethereal Knives projectiles would chain long past the projectile's lifetime.
  • Fixed a bug where map bosses had lost the additional chance to drop a map adjacent to the one you were currently in.
  • Fixed a bug where the "increased effect of non-damaging ailments on enemies" veiled modifier could appear on rings when dropped, but not when crafted. It now correctly appears on amulets rather than rings when dropped.
  • Fixed a Delve exploit.
