Maven first encounter in Breachstones Jatin_GGG 01/20
"
I joined some friends for a breachstone. I had Maven's orb drop after the boss fight. This made my first encounter with her segregated to just the breachstones. She is not interested in any other areas of my atlas. I have beat most of the bosses but Chayula is extremely difficult for my current build. To have a major part of this league locked behind content that is difficult at lower level builds is extremely frustrating. It costs 40C per a charge in hopes that I will defeat Chaula and in hopes that this actually progresses the content. I am not even sure what can be done here but thought someone at GGG could at least take a look at this as it is seriously frustrating and makes you want to walk away from the game. (I wont....but it makes you want to lol). PLEASE HELP!!!


Thanks for your report, we're looking into this.

The realm goes down and patching begins at: Jan 20, 2021 8:00 AM (PST)

The Maven Kill event will start when Echoes of the Atlas goes live.

The Maven Kill event will run for four weeks and will end on the 17th of February (PST). We've added a separate microtransaction prize pool for consoles:

The first ten players who manage to kill the Maven in the Ritual SSF league on each console get a choice of one microtransaction bundle from the list below:

100 randomly selected players from all versions of the Ritual league who manage to kill the Maven will receive one Warlord Mystery Box.

Good luck!

We hope you enjoy the Echoes of the Atlas expansion and the Ritual league on consoles! See you tomorrow at launch!
[PS4] Content Update 3.13.0 -- Path of Exile: Echoes of the Atlas Natalia_GGG 01/20

Content Update 3.13.0 -- Path of Exile: Echoes of the Atlas

In addition to an expansion to Path of Exile's extensive endgame, this update includes the Ritual Challenge League, which is available at all levels, a broad rebalance of all Ascendancy classes (including some reworks), many changes to skill balance, new items, maps, boss fights, systems and more.

Console-Specific Changes

  • Updated the Microtransaction Shop UI.
  • Added the stash folders feature.
  • Images in the MOTD can now be selected and loaded on the built in web browser.
  • Improved smart targetting of area skills when they're triggered (i.e Cast while Channelling).
  • Improved the Betrayal crafting spree minigame (Tiny's Trial), A/X now auto applies currency to the craftable item rather than needing to move the cursor to the item.
  • Using Portal Scrolls and Rogue Markers now automatically closes the inventory UI.
  • During Blight encounters, hidden loot will now have a slight delay before shown when pressing 'L3'.
  • Added support for 'R3' quick movement of the game cursor while holding 'L3' on the following UIs: Harvest Crafting, Harvest Silo, Map Device, Crafting Bench, Unveiling UI, Unique Stash and Divination Stash.
  • Moved Talismans to their own amulet subcategory on the trade market.
  • DPad can now be used to navigate Atlas region trees.
  • Fixed a visual glitch when socketing Atlas Watchstones.
  • Fixed a bug which wouldn't store crafted Watchstones.
  • Fixed a rare crash when exiting to character screen, or the login screen.
  • Fixed server messages not showing their entire messages on certain chatbox sizes.
  • Fixed a bug which could occur when bypassing stash affinities.
  • Reworked the Map Device UI to accomodate new features.
  • Added craftable Watchstones to the trade market categories.
  • Casting a Mark skill on a group of monsters will now target the monster which has the highest rarity.
  • Updated various legends.

Echoes of the Atlas

  • The Sealing of the Elder has sent shockwaves far beyond the Atlas. Unknown and unseen entities now move towards the Atlas, lured by the sudden absence of one of their own.
  • Heralded by the Envoy, an entity known as the Maven is the first to arrive. Her desires are clear -- to witness the exquisite struggle for survival between mortal entities. Those brave and resilient enough to withstand her brutal trials are to be rewarded with unequalled control of the Atlas.
  • New Atlas Passive Skill Trees provide the capacity for Exiles to pursue, control, and customise the game content they most enjoy on a per-Region basis, so long as they prove their worth to the Maven.

The Ritual 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 Ritual Challenge League, Ritual Altars have appeared throughout the world. By slaying the monsters that guard the Ritual Altars, then activating them, you will call more monsters into the Ritual Circle that surrounds it. Slaying those monsters awards you Tribute, which can be spent on rewards from the Altar. Each area has several Rituals, and monsters slain in a previous Ritual in the area will be revived in subsequent Rituals.
  • You can buy Ritual Splinters from completed Rituals which can be combined to create a Ritual Vessel. Using a Ritual Vessel at any completed Ritual Altar will turn it into a Blood-filled Vessel, capturing a record of all the monsters first slain at that Ritual. Blood-filled Vessels can be placed alongside any Map in the Map Device to imbue the Rituals in that area with the captured monsters.
  • Some items are only available from Ritual Altars, and may be very costly to purchase. You can pay part of the Tribute cost for such items to Defer them, causing them to appear again in a later area. You can Defer items multiple times, allowing you to eventually afford expensive items over time.
  • With 3.13.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Ritual 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 Ritual Weapon Effect. When you reach 24 challenges, you will receive the Ritual Character Effect. At 36 challenges completed you'll receive the Ritualist's Hideout. 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 Ritual Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Ritual challenges you completed during the league.

Major New Content and Features

  • Added a new Intelligence Skill Gem - Hydrosphere: Creates a sphere of water, or moves an existing sphere and resets its duration. The sphere continually applies a drenched debuff with a short duration to enemies in its area or those it moves through. You can hit the sphere with other skills to inflict cold and lightning ailments (other than chill). The sphere pulses at regular intervals while afflicted by an ailment, and after moving, damaging all drenched enemies in a large area with that ailment.
  • Added a new Intelligence/Dexterity Support Gem - Trinity Support: Supports skills that hit enemies, causing them to gain bonuses while you have resonance of all three elements and grant resonance of elements other than the highest-damage element in a hit. Supported skills deal more elemental damage and penetrate elemental resistances based on the lowest of your three resonances.
  • Added 13 new Unique Items.
  • Added 15 new Divination Cards, designed by supporters.
  • Added 11 new Maps.
  • Added Heist to the core game, rebalanced around the lower rate of encountering Heist gameplay (see Heist Changes).
  • Added Harvest to the core game in a significantly modified form (see Harvest Changes).

Minor New Content and Features

  • Texture Streaming has been reworked. Many textures that were not previously streamed now are, and the image quality of streamed textures has been improved. This also addresses some hiccups around the first time certain events occured within a session (such as slaying some monsters). This change will be monitored and improved in future updates based on player data.
  • Kinetic Blast and Storm Call have brand new effects.
  • Firestorm has a new skillbar icon.
  • Pets now have a very slight delay before they will follow you when you move.
  • Opening the portals to the Temple of Atzoatl or to a Syndicate Safehouse in your hideout after you've acquried a Map Device now creates those portals at your Map Device.
  • Continued to incrementally improve the sound, art, effects and environments.

  • Smuggler's Caches now always drop a Quest Contract if possible, in addition to an ordinary Contract.

  • All quest contracts now reward you with Rogue's Markers upon completion.
  • Kurai's second and third quest contracts now spawn more monsters during the escape.
  • The number of Rogue's Markers you get from completing contracts above level 68 has been increased. You'll now get (on average) 20% more markers from Level 83 contracts.
  • The levels at which Heist Equipment drops has been adjusted to fit the new progression.
  • Job Experience granted to Heist participants has been increased across the board to fit the lower frequency at which players will engage in them.
  • Blueprints that have been created through duplication (such as via Einhar's Blood Altar) must now be revealed again.
  • The Rogue Harbour once again acts like a town and will be populated by other players.
  • Vinderi's chance for items from Heist chests to be doubled has been reduced at all levels. It is now 14% at job level 5 (from 20%).
  • Huck now grants increased experience to players in Heists, up to 20% at job level 3.
  • Harvest rewards can no longer appear in Heists, because Harvest is a thing again.
  • Greatly increased the chance of finding Tempering and Tailoring Orbs from Blueprint rewards.
  • The experience limit on all Heists has been lowered (as in, you will hit a point at which additional monster spawns grant no experience sooner).
  • Whakano's reveal audio no longer overlaps with itself.

Return to top

Harvest Changes

  • Harvest has been added to the core game and has been vastly reworked. It no longer contains a garden-building component, nor a permanent garden of your own. Instead, you now have a chance to discover a portal to an established Sacred Grove in maps, which contains several different harvestable plots.
  • Each plot is presented as a pair of options. Harvesting one plot destroys the other, so choose carefully. Like previously, harvesting will cause monsters to emerge, and upon defeating the monsters you'll be able to craft your items at the Lifeforce Collector.
  • Once you have completed your first Harvest, you will be given a Horticrafting Station which can store up to 10 crafting options. You'll be able to place a copy of the Horticrafting Station in your hideout, meaning you don't have to do all your crafting in the Sacred Grove.
  • On very rare occasions, you'll be able to harvest the Heart of the Grove and fight the Avatar of the Grove.
  • The Tier 3 Seed modifier that originally doubled Lifeforce from a harvest (from the Primal Reborn monster) now instead causes crafting options to be Lucky (they will roll outcomes twice and select the rarest outcome).

  • The Far Shot keyword now causes your projectiles to deal 20% less damage at very close range (previously no penalty), up to 60% more at a range of 70 or greater (previously 30% more).
  • The Tailwind buff now grants 8% increased Action Speed (from 10%).

Return to top

Skill Balance

  • Added a new "Orb" Gem Tag. This applies to skills which have a periodic effect over an area and persist for a duration but are not targetable by enemies. Orb of Storms, Void Sphere, Winter Orb, Hydrosphere and Frost Bomb now have this tag. To avoid confusion, Magma Orb has been renamed to Rolling Magma.

Unique Item Balance

  • Replica Nebulis now has 15 to 20% increased Cold Damage (from 3 to 5%) per 1% Missing Cold Resistance, up to a maximum of 300% and 15 to 20% increased Fire Damage (from 3 to 5%) per 1% Missing Fire Resistance, up to a maximum of 300%. Existing items can be divined to these new values, however, existing items are now also affected by the 300% cap. This cap also applies while dual-wielding.
  • Replica Alberon's Warpath now grants 1 to 80 Chaos Damage to Attacks per 80 Strength (previously per 50 Strength). This affects all versions of the item.
  • Martyr of Innocence no longer grants added Fire Damage to Spells. Instead, it now grants the Battlemage keyword (which adds main hand weapon damage to spells). This affects all versions of this item. New versions of Martyr of Innocence now have 315-360 to 450-540 added Fire Damage (from 350-400 to 500-600). Existing items can be updated to the new values with a Divine Orb, but why on Wraeclast would you do that?
  • Disintegrator no longer grants added Physical Damage to Spells. Instead it now grants the Battlemage keyword (which adds main hand weapon damage to spells). This affects all versions of this item.
  • Jack, the Axe now has 130 to 150% increased Physical Damage (from 90 to 110%). It no longer has increased Attack Speed, Life Leech or Reduced Leech Rate. It now has +25 to 35% to Bleeding Damage over Time multiplier. It now also grants the Thirst for Blood skill. Its flavour text has been updated.
  • The Lord of Steel unique Jewels now grant 20 to 25% increased reflected damage from Call of Steel (from 40 to 50%). Existing versions can be updated to these new, much worse values, with a Divine Orb and a momentary lapse in judgement.
  • Summoned Skeleton Mages (from Dead Reckoning unique jewel or Vaal Summon Skeletons) now deal 50% more damage, and their projectile speed has been doubled.
  • Leash of Oblation no longer grants 25% reduced effect of Offerings. This affects all versions of this item.
  • Cameria's Avarice now triggers the Icicle Burst skill on hit, rather than on kill. We really mean it this time, I swear. This affects all versions of the item.

Monster Changes

  • Some bosses now ignore damage if the source of that damage has been a very long distance from it for a period of time (essentially, you can't just shoot them from beyond their pathfinding radius any more).
  • Enduring Cry used by monsters has been given a cooldown and had its healing amount standardised. It's less ridiculous now.

Atlas and Map Changes

  • Map tiers and locations have been shuffled (though the 'pin' locations for maps has not changed). Most maps are now initially found at a different tier. Unique maps have not moved or changed tiers.
  • Conqueror-Influenced maps may now experience an invasion by Sirus himself.
  • Zana can now offer missions involving Metamorph, Delirium, Blight and Harvest mechanics.
  • Kirac can now inform you if your Atlas state is preventing a Conqueror from appearing (as well as how to fix it).

  • Cartographer's Strongboxes can now rarely appear in Tier 13 and higher maps.
  • The Hall of Grandmasters unique map has been removed from the Atlas. It still can still drop as loot, it just does not need to be completed to complete your Atlas.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug which prevented Cyclone's channelling speed to be affected by modifiers to Action Speed.
  • Fixed a bug where Divergent Swift Affliction would incorrectly grant you a permanent (but not stacking) movement speed increase if you afflicted an enemy with an ailment with a supported skill. The correct behaviour is that only the afflicted entities (which may be you, or the enemy, or both!) will gain the increased movement speed, and only for the duration of the ailment.
  • Fixed a bug where the triggered Flame Dash and Lightning Warp skills from Infernal Blade series of basetypes and Moonbender's Wing respectively could be supported by effects that cannot ordinarily support triggered skills (such as Spell Totem Support).
  • Fixed a bug which prevented cosmetic effects applied to a support gem (such as the Dragon Totem Skin) from appearing if the skill the support gem was supporting came from an item mod rather than a skill gem (such as Icestorm from The Whispering Ice).
  • Fixed a bug which prevented repeated Cleaves with the Demon Hand Cleave cosmetic applied from producing sound effects.
  • Fixed a bug where, while wearing the unique belt Chains of Emancipation, using a flask that removes curses would not cause you to gain rage in a map that applies Temporal Chains to you.
  • Fixed a bug where skeleton monsters in some Heist tilesets were dealing spell damage with a skill that should have been considered an attack.
  • Fixed a bug where one of the beam skills used by Kurgal, the Blackblooded, Sin Purgers from Legion monoliths, and Wild Hellion Alpha from Harvest seeds would only check Spell Dodge chance at the start, and not throughout the skill (so if you dodged or were hit by the first damage instance of the skill, you'd dodge or be hit by all of them).
  • Fixed a bug which caused Viper Napuatzi's orb-launching skill to never hit you.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Farrul, First of the Plains' Lacerate skill to only hit targets at a very specific distance.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Chilled and Shocked Ground to act as if you had double the values of any modifiers to non-damaging Ailment effect on you.
  • Fixed a bug where a Brute Force obstacle in a Heist would (rarely) appear to still exist after all collision had been removed.
  • Fixed a bug where an enemy converted by a Heist member could fire a projectile through your Flame Wall while it was an ally, die, and then have that projectile nuke you with your own Flame Wall debuff due to it now being an enemy projectile (covered in your Fire Wall fire).
  • Fixed a bug which caused Ancestor Totems to never attack if they lost line of sight of you during a brief but critical period after being summoned.
  • Fixed a bug where ground effects and auras could continue to affect you well beyond their range if you performed an in-area transition at the precise moment it was created.
  • Fixed an exploit which allowed you to endlessly stack certain stats from auras.
  • Fixed a bug which allowed Orb of Binding to bypass socket penalties (such as enchantments that reduce the maximum number of sockets an item can have).
  • Fixed a bug where assigning the Signal Prey skill to your left mouse button would result in you getting booted for performing too many actions while running around.
  • Fixed a bug where Incursion Temple room options were generated based on your character's level, rather than the level of the area in which you found Alva.
  • Fixed a number of cases where Strongboxes could appear in locations that could prevent movement.
  • Fixed a number of cases where items could drop in inaccessible areas.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Discipline to grant twice as much increased Energy Shield Recharge Rate as it should have.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Cremation supported by Intensify and/or Pinpoint Supports to not carry the benefits or drawbacks of those supports to the projectile part of the skill.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Cylone's quality-based Interruption-avoidance to only get checked once per use (with the result used for the duration of your channelling), rather than every time you were hit.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the unique jewel Unnatural Instinct to ignore its implicit if a small passive in its radius had the same stat.
  • Fixed a bug which caused PvP ratings to stop decaying.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause Sirus to not use certain skills during his last phase.
  • Fixed a bug where Hextouch Support and Impending Doom Support could both support (and work) with the same skill, even though Impending Doom specifies it cannot support curse skills which are triggered.
  • Fixed a bug where the Debilitate debuff was using a default icon. Now it has its own special icon, just for it.
  • Fixed a bug where some Essence of Anguish modifiers granted the wrong level requirement to the items the Essences were used on.
  • Fixed a bug where the action speed buff granted by the Greater Harbinger of Time from The Flow Untethered and The Torrent's Reclamation unique items did not affect your totems.
  • Fixed a bug where freeze-locking the boss of the Overgrown Ruin map while killing his minion could make the boss unkillable.
  • Fixed a bug where multiple instances of the Pride Aura could be manipulated to stack the increased damage monsters take above the intended maximum.
  • Fixed a bug where you could trigger your own traps by throwing them through your Flame Wall.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented Shield Shatter from the Shattershard unique shield from being supported by Increased Duration Support or Less Duration Support.
  • Fixed a bug where Elemental Focus and Charged Mines used the same letter on the skill bar when supporting a skill.
  • Fixed a bug where the Master Helmet Cosmetic Effect's red plume turned gold.
  • Fixed a bug where the unique helmet Maw of Mischief's Death Wish skill could target untargetable minions such as your Harbingers and spiders raised by Arakaali's Fang. That's the wrong kind of mischief.
  • Fixed a bug where Incursions could contain more Stones of Passage than there were doors to use them on.
  • Fixed a bug where Divergent Sunder had the same quality effect as Superior Sunder, but better. It now correctly has 1% increased Physical Damage per 1% gem quality.
  • Fixed a bug where Double Strike didn't add physical damage against bleeding enemies when it totally said it would.
  • Fixed a number of alternate quality skill and support gem effects failing to display their correct effects and various amounts of quality.
  • Fixed a bug where Righteous Fire could break barrels on the other sides of obstacles.
  • Fixed a bug where Blackguards would mysteriously leave Betrayal Research missions if you'd encountered a Betrayal Transportation mission prior.
  • Fixed a bug where Flame Surge would deal more damage against non-ignited enemies and NOT against ignited enemes. You know, the exact opposite of what it says!
  • Fixed a bug where arrows which split from Tornado Shot would split at your location rather than the Tornado Shot's location.
  • Fixed a bug where Flame Wall's debuff would ignore PvP scaling against other players.
  • Fixed a bug where the prophecy which would cause Alva to appear in an area could trigger when your Temple was fully discovered (and therefore would prevent Alva from appearing).
  • Fixed a bug where a guard could be stuck in the environment in a specific Heist contract, preventing him from being able to use the lever and let you through.
  • Fixed a bug where the Plaza map could generate in two completely separate sections, as though torn asunder by some mighty deity.
  • Fixed a bug where Crackling Lance would be triggered from you when supported by Arcanist Brand Support, when it should have come from the Brand.
  • Fixed a bug where Fragile Bloom did not generate stacks of the Fragile Regrowth buff if you'd died and revived in the same area.
  • Fixed a bug where your spell damage from the Inner Conviction keystone would not correctly update regularly based on the number of Power Charges you had.
  • Fixed a bug where you could not deal critical strikes with unarmed offhand attacks while Hollow Palm Technique was allocated.

  • Fixed a bug where Brand Recall's Brand Activation mana cost did not take into account whether or not you had Blood Magic.
  • Fixed a bug where The Ghastly Theatre's Physical Aegis would turn off the Flesh and Stone buffs when it was depleted.
  • Fixed a bug where Lancing Steel could fire through some thin walls.
  • Fixed a bug where Void Sphere's visual effects could persist past its duration while on Predictive networking mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the Quicksand debuff visual could persist after the debuff itself had expired.
  • Fixed a bug where the Breach Core Supporter Pack cosmetics didn't have their glowing purple tendrils like they were meant to.
  • Fixed a bug where Magic item names didn't display both prefixes or both suffixes if that's all they had (due to being on one of the Heist ring basetypes, for example).
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when a curse was applied to your character.
  • Fixed a rare crash caused by entities moving out of bounds of the game world under some unusual circumstances.
  • Fixed a rare client crash related to Steel skills.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the game client to crash if you changed your system clock's time while the game was running.

[Xbox One] Content Update 3.13.0 -- Path of Exile: Echoes of the Atlas Natalia_GGG 01/20

Content Update 3.13.0 -- Path of Exile: Echoes of the Atlas

In addition to an expansion to Path of Exile's extensive endgame, this update includes the Ritual Challenge League, which is available at all levels, a broad rebalance of all Ascendancy classes (including some reworks), many changes to skill balance, new items, maps, boss fights, systems and more.

Console-Specific Changes

  • Updated the Microtransaction Shop UI.
  • Added the stash folders feature.
  • Images in the MOTD can now be selected and loaded on the built in web browser.
  • Improved smart targetting of area skills when they're triggered (i.e Cast while Channelling).
  • Improved the Betrayal crafting spree minigame (Tiny's Trial), A/X now auto applies currency to the craftable item rather than needing to move the cursor to the item.
  • Using Portal Scrolls and Rogue Markers now automatically closes the inventory UI.
  • During Blight encounters, hidden loot will now have a slight delay before shown when pressing 'LS'.
  • Added support for 'RS' quick movement of the game cursor while holding 'LS' on the following UIs: Harvest Crafting, Harvest Silo, Map Device, Crafting Bench, Unveiling UI, Unique Stash and Divination Stash.
  • Moved Talismans to their own amulet subcategory on the trade market.
  • DPad can now be used to navigate Atlas region trees.
  • Fixed a visual glitch when socketing Atlas Watchstones.

  • Casting a Mark skill on a group of monsters will now target the monster which has the highest rarity.
  • Updated various legends.

Echoes of the Atlas

  • The Sealing of the Elder has sent shockwaves far beyond the Atlas. Unknown and unseen entities now move towards the Atlas, lured by the sudden absence of one of their own.
  • Heralded by the Envoy, an entity known as the Maven is the first to arrive. Her desires are clear -- to witness the exquisite struggle for survival between mortal entities. Those brave and resilient enough to withstand her brutal trials are to be rewarded with unequalled control of the Atlas.
  • New Atlas Passive Skill Trees provide the capacity for Exiles to pursue, control, and customise the game content they most enjoy on a per-Region basis, so long as they prove their worth to the Maven.

The Ritual 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 Ritual Challenge League, Ritual Altars have appeared throughout the world. By slaying the monsters that guard the Ritual Altars, then activating them, you will call more monsters into the Ritual Circle that surrounds it. Slaying those monsters awards you Tribute, which can be spent on rewards from the Altar. Each area has several Rituals, and monsters slain in a previous Ritual in the area will be revived in subsequent Rituals.
  • You can buy Ritual Splinters from completed Rituals which can be combined to create a Ritual Vessel. Using a Ritual Vessel at any completed Ritual Altar will turn it into a Blood-filled Vessel, capturing a record of all the monsters first slain at that Ritual. Blood-filled Vessels can be placed alongside any Map in the Map Device to imbue the Rituals in that area with the captured monsters.
  • Some items are only available from Ritual Altars, and may be very costly to purchase. You can pay part of the Tribute cost for such items to Defer them, causing them to appear again in a later area. You can Defer items multiple times, allowing you to eventually afford expensive items over time.
  • With 3.13.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Ritual 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 Ritual Weapon Effect. When you reach 24 challenges, you will receive the Ritual Character Effect. At 36 challenges completed you'll receive the Ritualist's Hideout. 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 Ritual Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Ritual challenges you completed during the league.

Major New Content and Features

  • Added a new Intelligence Skill Gem - Hydrosphere: Creates a sphere of water, or moves an existing sphere and resets its duration. The sphere continually applies a drenched debuff with a short duration to enemies in its area or those it moves through. You can hit the sphere with other skills to inflict cold and lightning ailments (other than chill). The sphere pulses at regular intervals while afflicted by an ailment, and after moving, damaging all drenched enemies in a large area with that ailment.
  • Added a new Intelligence/Dexterity Support Gem - Trinity Support: Supports skills that hit enemies, causing them to gain bonuses while you have resonance of all three elements and grant resonance of elements other than the highest-damage element in a hit. Supported skills deal more elemental damage and penetrate elemental resistances based on the lowest of your three resonances.
  • Added 13 new Unique Items.
  • Added 15 new Divination Cards, designed by supporters.
  • Added 11 new Maps.
  • Added Heist to the core game, rebalanced around the lower rate of encountering Heist gameplay (see Heist Changes).
  • Added Harvest to the core game in a significantly modified form (see Harvest Changes).

Return to top

Minor New Content and Features

  • Texture Streaming has been reworked. Many textures that were not previously streamed now are, and the image quality of streamed textures has been improved. This also addresses some hiccups around the first time certain events occured within a session (such as slaying some monsters). This change will be monitored and improved in future updates based on player data.
  • Kinetic Blast and Storm Call have brand new effects.
  • Firestorm has a new skillbar icon.
  • Pets now have a very slight delay before they will follow you when you move.
  • Opening the portals to the Temple of Atzoatl or to a Syndicate Safehouse in your hideout after you've acquried a Map Device now creates those portals at your Map Device.
  • Continued to incrementally improve the sound, art, effects and environments.

  • All quest contracts now reward you with Rogue's Markers upon completion.
  • Kurai's second and third quest contracts now spawn more monsters during the escape.
  • The number of Rogue's Markers you get from completing contracts above level 68 has been increased. You'll now get (on average) 20% more markers from Level 83 contracts.
  • The levels at which Heist Equipment drops has been adjusted to fit the new progression.
  • Job Experience granted to Heist participants has been increased across the board to fit the lower frequency at which players will engage in them.
  • Blueprints that have been created through duplication (such as via Einhar's Blood Altar) must now be revealed again.
  • The Rogue Harbour once again acts like a town and will be populated by other players.
  • Vinderi's chance for items from Heist chests to be doubled has been reduced at all levels. It is now 14% at job level 5 (from 20%).
  • Huck now grants increased experience to players in Heists, up to 20% at job level 3.
  • Harvest rewards can no longer appear in Heists, because Harvest is a thing again.
  • Greatly increased the chance of finding Tempering and Tailoring Orbs from Blueprint rewards.
  • The experience limit on all Heists has been lowered (as in, you will hit a point at which additional monster spawns grant no experience sooner).
  • Whakano's reveal audio no longer overlaps with itself.

Return to top

Harvest Changes

  • Harvest has been added to the core game and has been vastly reworked. It no longer contains a garden-building component, nor a permanent garden of your own. Instead, you now have a chance to discover a portal to an established Sacred Grove in maps, which contains several different harvestable plots.
  • Each plot is presented as a pair of options. Harvesting one plot destroys the other, so choose carefully. Like previously, harvesting will cause monsters to emerge, and upon defeating the monsters you'll be able to craft your items at the Lifeforce Collector.
  • Once you have completed your first Harvest, you will be given a Horticrafting Station which can store up to 10 crafting options. You'll be able to place a copy of the Horticrafting Station in your hideout, meaning you don't have to do all your crafting in the Sacred Grove.
  • On very rare occasions, you'll be able to harvest the Heart of the Grove and fight the Avatar of the Grove.
  • The Tier 3 Seed modifier that originally doubled Lifeforce from a harvest (from the Primal Reborn monster) now instead causes crafting options to be Lucky (they will roll outcomes twice and select the rarest outcome).

Character Balance

  • The cooldown for gaining a flask charge from effects which grant them on a critical strike has been reduced to 0.1 seconds (from 0.2).
  • The Far Shot keyword now causes your projectiles to deal 20% less damage at very close range (previously no penalty), up to 60% more at a range of 70 or greater (previously 30% more).
  • The Tailwind buff now grants 8% increased Action Speed (from 10%).

Return to top

Skill Balance

  • Added a new "Orb" Gem Tag. This applies to skills which have a periodic effect over an area and persist for a duration but are not targetable by enemies. Orb of Storms, Void Sphere, Winter Orb, Hydrosphere and Frost Bomb now have this tag. To avoid confusion, Magma Orb has been renamed to Rolling Magma.

Item Balance

  • Items that appear identified or with visible variable properties in a Vendor's window as a result of a recipe now have their properties hidden until the trade is complete.

  • You can now perform the 5-for-1 recipe on items with outputs that are always corrupted (such as Talismans and Breach Rings).
  • Maps dropped by special sources such as deterministic chests or league rewards like those found in the Azurite Mine or the Temple of Atzoatl now use your own Atlas to determine which maps to drop, and can therefore drop maps that have been raised above their base tier due to the presence of Watchstones. Maps dropped from these sources now also take into account your Favourite Map selections. If a source such as this cannot find a compatible map from your Atlas to drop (for example, due to too few maps being completed and too few watchstones being socketed for a Tier 16 map on your Atlas to drop), it will drop a random map of the correct tier instead.
  • The Blood Altar crafted modifiers which reduce the effect of non-damaging Ailments on you now instead grant reduced effect of Shock and Chill on you.
  • The Eternal Labyrinth enchantment for Venom Gyre now grants a 25% chance to keep caught projectiles fired by using Whirling Blades (from 35%). Existing items with this enchantment are unaffected.

Teal Oil now grants "5 Blight Chests are Lucky" and Crimson Oil now grants "10 Blight Chests are Lucky".
  • The Blight Ring anointment that causes minions from your Scout Towers to have increased Life now instead causes your Scout Towers to produce an additional minion. Existing items with this anointment are unaffected.

Existing items can be divined to these new values, however, existing items are now also affected by the 300% cap. This cap also applies while dual-wielding.
  • Replica Alberon's Warpath now grants 1 to 80 Chaos Damage to Attacks per 80 Strength (previously per 50 Strength). This affects all versions of the item.
  • Martyr of Innocence no longer grants added Fire Damage to Spells. Instead, it now grants the Battlemage keyword (which adds main hand weapon damage to spells). This affects all versions of this item. New versions of Martyr of Innocence now have 315-360 to 450-540 added Fire Damage (from 350-400 to 500-600). Existing items can be updated to the new values with a Divine Orb, but why on Wraeclast would you do that?
  • Disintegrator no longer grants added Physical Damage to Spells. Instead it now grants the Battlemage keyword (which adds main hand weapon damage to spells). This affects all versions of this item.
  • Jack, the Axe now has 130 to 150% increased Physical Damage (from 90 to 110%). It no longer has increased Attack Speed, Life Leech or Reduced Leech Rate. It now has +25 to 35% to Bleeding Damage over Time multiplier. It now also grants the Thirst for Blood skill. Its flavour text has been updated.

  • Summoned Skeleton Mages (from Dead Reckoning unique jewel or Vaal Summon Skeletons) now deal 50% more damage, and their projectile speed has been doubled.
  • Leash of Oblation no longer grants 25% reduced effect of Offerings. This affects all versions of this item.
  • Cameria's Avarice now triggers the Icicle Burst skill on hit, rather than on kill. We really mean it this time, I swear. This affects all versions of the item.

Monster Changes

  • Some bosses now ignore damage if the source of that damage has been a very long distance from it for a period of time (essentially, you can't just shoot them from beyond their pathfinding radius any more).
  • Enduring Cry used by monsters has been given a cooldown and had its healing amount standardised. It's less ridiculous now.

Atlas and Map Changes

  • Cartographer's Strongboxes can now rarely appear in Tier 13 and higher maps.
  • The Hall of Grandmasters unique map has been removed from the Atlas. It still can still drop as loot, it just does not need to be completed to complete your Atlas.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug which prevented Cyclone's channelling speed to be affected by modifiers to Action Speed.
  • Fixed a bug where Divergent Swift Affliction would incorrectly grant you a permanent (but not stacking) movement speed increase if you afflicted an enemy with an ailment with a supported skill. The correct behaviour is that only the afflicted entities (which may be you, or the enemy, or both!) will gain the increased movement speed, and only for the duration of the ailment.
  • Fixed a bug where the triggered Flame Dash and Lightning Warp skills from Infernal Blade series of basetypes and Moonbender's Wing respectively could be supported by effects that cannot ordinarily support triggered skills (such as Spell Totem Support).
  • Fixed a bug which prevented cosmetic effects applied to a support gem (such as the Dragon Totem Skin) from appearing if the skill the support gem was supporting came from an item mod rather than a skill gem (such as Icestorm from The Whispering Ice).
  • Fixed a bug which prevented repeated Cleaves with the Demon Hand Cleave cosmetic applied from producing sound effects.
  • Fixed a bug where, while wearing the unique belt Chains of Emancipation, using a flask that removes curses would not cause you to gain rage in a map that applies Temporal Chains to you.
  • Fixed a bug where skeleton monsters in some Heist tilesets were dealing spell damage with a skill that should have been considered an attack.
  • Fixed a bug where one of the beam skills used by Kurgal, the Blackblooded, Sin Purgers from Legion monoliths, and Wild Hellion Alpha from Harvest seeds would only check Spell Dodge chance at the start, and not throughout the skill (so if you dodged or were hit by the first damage instance of the skill, you'd dodge or be hit by all of them).
  • Fixed a bug which caused Viper Napuatzi's orb-launching skill to never hit you.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Farrul, First of the Plains' Lacerate skill to only hit targets at a very specific distance.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Chilled and Shocked Ground to act as if you had double the values of any modifiers to non-damaging Ailment effect on you.
  • Fixed a bug where a Brute Force obstacle in a Heist would (rarely) appear to still exist after all collision had been removed.
  • Fixed a bug where an enemy converted by a Heist member could fire a projectile through your Flame Wall while it was an ally, die, and then have that projectile nuke you with your own Flame Wall debuff due to it now being an enemy projectile (covered in your Fire Wall fire).
  • Fixed a bug which caused Ancestor Totems to never attack if they lost line of sight of you during a brief but critical period after being summoned.
  • Fixed a bug where ground effects and auras could continue to affect you well beyond their range if you performed an in-area transition at the precise moment it was created.
  • Fixed an exploit which allowed you to endlessly stack certain stats from auras.
  • Fixed a bug which allowed Orb of Binding to bypass socket penalties (such as enchantments that reduce the maximum number of sockets an item can have).
  • Fixed a bug where assigning the Signal Prey skill to your left mouse button would result in you getting booted for performing too many actions while running around.
  • Fixed a bug where Incursion Temple room options were generated based on your character's level, rather than the level of the area in which you found Alva.
  • Fixed a number of cases where Strongboxes could appear in locations that could prevent movement.
  • Fixed a number of cases where items could drop in inaccessible areas.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Discipline to grant twice as much increased Energy Shield Recharge Rate as it should have.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Cremation supported by Intensify and/or Pinpoint Supports to not carry the benefits or drawbacks of those supports to the projectile part of the skill.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Cylone's quality-based Interruption-avoidance to only get checked once per use (with the result used for the duration of your channelling), rather than every time you were hit.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the unique jewel Unnatural Instinct to ignore its implicit if a small passive in its radius had the same stat.
  • Fixed a bug which caused PvP ratings to stop decaying.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause Sirus to not use certain skills during his last phase.
  • Fixed a bug where Hextouch Support and Impending Doom Support could both support (and work) with the same skill, even though Impending Doom specifies it cannot support curse skills which are triggered.
  • Fixed a bug where the Debilitate debuff was using a default icon. Now it has its own special icon, just for it.
  • Fixed a bug where some Essence of Anguish modifiers granted the wrong level requirement to the items the Essences were used on.
  • Fixed a bug where the action speed buff granted by the Greater Harbinger of Time from The Flow Untethered and The Torrent's Reclamation unique items did not affect your totems.
  • Fixed a bug where freeze-locking the boss of the Overgrown Ruin map while killing his minion could make the boss unkillable.
  • Fixed a bug where multiple instances of the Pride Aura could be manipulated to stack the increased damage monsters take above the intended maximum.
  • Fixed a bug where you could trigger your own traps by throwing them through your Flame Wall.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented Shield Shatter from the Shattershard unique shield from being supported by Increased Duration Support or Less Duration Support.
  • Fixed a bug where Elemental Focus and Charged Mines used the same letter on the skill bar when supporting a skill.
  • Fixed a bug where the Master Helmet Cosmetic Effect's red plume turned gold.
  • Fixed a bug where the unique helmet Maw of Mischief's Death Wish skill could target untargetable minions such as your Harbingers and spiders raised by Arakaali's Fang. That's the wrong kind of mischief.
  • Fixed a bug where Incursions could contain more Stones of Passage than there were doors to use them on.
  • Fixed a bug where Divergent Sunder had the same quality effect as Superior Sunder, but better. It now correctly has 1% increased Physical Damage per 1% gem quality.
  • Fixed a bug where Double Strike didn't add physical damage against bleeding enemies when it totally said it would.
  • Fixed a number of alternate quality skill and support gem effects failing to display their correct effects and various amounts of quality.
  • Fixed a bug where Righteous Fire could break barrels on the other sides of obstacles.
  • Fixed a bug where Blackguards would mysteriously leave Betrayal Research missions if you'd encountered a Betrayal Transportation mission prior.
  • Fixed a bug where Flame Surge would deal more damage against non-ignited enemies and NOT against ignited enemes. You know, the exact opposite of what it says!
  • Fixed a bug where arrows which split from Tornado Shot would split at your location rather than the Tornado Shot's location.
  • Fixed a bug where Flame Wall's debuff would ignore PvP scaling against other players.
  • Fixed a bug where the prophecy which would cause Alva to appear in an area could trigger when your Temple was fully discovered (and therefore would prevent Alva from appearing).
  • Fixed a bug where a guard could be stuck in the environment in a specific Heist contract, preventing him from being able to use the lever and let you through.
  • Fixed a bug where the Plaza map could generate in two completely separate sections, as though torn asunder by some mighty deity.
  • Fixed a bug where Crackling Lance would be triggered from you when supported by Arcanist Brand Support, when it should have come from the Brand.
  • Fixed a bug where Fragile Bloom did not generate stacks of the Fragile Regrowth buff if you'd died and revived in the same area.
  • Fixed a bug where your spell damage from the Inner Conviction keystone would not correctly update regularly based on the number of Power Charges you had.
  • Fixed a bug where you could not deal critical strikes with unarmed offhand attacks while Hollow Palm Technique was allocated.

  • Fixed a bug where Brand Recall's Brand Activation mana cost did not take into account whether or not you had Blood Magic.
  • Fixed a bug where The Ghastly Theatre's Physical Aegis would turn off the Flesh and Stone buffs when it was depleted.

  • Fixed a bug where Void Sphere's visual effects could persist past its duration while on Predictive networking mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the Quicksand debuff visual could persist after the debuff itself had expired.
  • Fixed a bug where the Breach Core Supporter Pack cosmetics didn't have their glowing purple tendrils like they were meant to.
  • Fixed a bug where Magic item names didn't display both prefixes or both suffixes if that's all they had (due to being on one of the Heist ring basetypes, for example).
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when a curse was applied to your character.
  • Fixed a rare crash caused by entities moving out of bounds of the game world under some unusual circumstances.
  • Fixed a rare client crash related to Steel skills.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the game client to crash if you changed your system clock's time while the game was running.

Even though lightning ball says it has 60% chance to poison. Lesser poison works though.


Thanks for your report, this is intended.

In order to apply Poison you need to deal either Physical or Chaos damage (there are some exceptions such as Volkuur's Guidance), the reason Lesser Poison Support works is because it adds flat Chaos Damage to supported skill whereas Poison Support doesn't.

I hope this helps.

With the Allies Cannot Die feedback, I've been clear that we're not planning to remove it. I'm not sure what else I can say that you'd appreciate. I understand there's parts of the game that may not appeal to everyone but it's impossible to make 100% of the people happy 100% of the time.

This comment is an example of why I haven't replied to this issue yet. When there's nothing report it's sort of a lose/lose situation between communicating that and not communicating that.

While we are working to further improve how texture streaming works, this shouldn't be the cause of any added performance issues.

If you're experiencing issues loading into particular areas, this is likely due to a memory leak issue that we are also currently investigating or perhaps another issue that we are unaware of.

Please report your experiences on the bug report forum with as many details about your computer specs as possible.

Monsters Dominated by Sirus have WAY TOO MUCH DAMAGE Community_Team 01/20
We have substantially reduced the damage or rare monsters influenced by Sirus so this should now be fixed.

Unfortunately, probably not.

Yep.

I read this thread at the time but the comments dissuaded me from raising it with the developers.

Echoes of the Atlas Week One Report Bex_GGG 01/20

This was meant to be a surprise for 3.14 but we were a little over enthusiastic to get them out so to speak. Having said that, we're going to complete the remaining work sooner so that they should be usable.

Yes, we're keeping track of feedback about this.

Echoes of the Atlas Week One Report Community_Team 01/20
We're on day five since the launch of Echoes of the Atlas and it's time to give you an update on how this week has gone and discuss some key talking points. We're really pleased with the feedback we've seen so far! As we mentioned a few days ago, the Echoes of the Atlas launch hit a new peak concurrency of 265,250 which is up 11% on our previous record of 237,160!

3.13 Patches

We've already deployed 6 hotfixes to the PC realm. You can view a summary of their collective patch notes below. Later this week, we'll deploy a patch that requires a realm restart and includes various fixes and improvements that can't be deployed in a hotfix. We'll outline what to expect further into this post.

Hotfix Patch Notes
  • Fixed several instance crashes.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players to see hidden Ritual rewards (the ones that unlock as you complete more Rituals in an area).
  • Fixed several client crashes.
  • Players with 3000mb of Video RAM or less are now capped at Medium texture quality with the Vulkan client, which prevents crashes. We will undo this change when we make some other Vulkan improvements within a few weeks.
  • Fixed a bug where party member names would not appear on the minimap.
  • Fixed a bug where quest Watchstones could be seen and picked up by party members.
  • Fixed a bug where Heist NPCs were not being introduced.
  • Fixed a bug where Sirus the Awakener wasn't dropping any Unique Items if your Awakening Level was between 1 and 7.
  • The number of Rituals remaining is now shown near the Ritual Button.
  • The special Vaal Rituals used to offer items with a high variance of Tribute costs (from very low to very high). This has now been capped to never be higher than other rituals.
  • Fixed a bug where Betrayal doors and Legion chests could be respawned in Ritual encounters.
  • Fixed a bug where players could sometimes not progress if a Ritual spawned in a pit fight in Daresso's Dream.
  • Substantially reduced the damage of rare monsters dominated by Sirus.
  • Reduced the damage done by The Maven's volatile orb explosions.
  • Increased the number of nearby enemies required for Sirus to spawn and attack the player during Sirus influence takeovers from 1 to 10.
  • The 'Contract: Trial Run' Heist quest contract now contains less valuable rewards.
  • Fixed a bug introduced in 3.13.0 where Increases and Reductions to Spell Damage weren't applying to Kinetic Bolt's Attack Damage.
  • Fixed a bug where 'More Spell Damage' modifiers from support gems weren't applying to Damage over Time skills unless they had hit an enemy.
  • Fixed a bug where unique maps could drop from story bosses.
  • Fixed a bug with the Corruption Altar not producing white sockets.
  • Fixed a bug with the Domain of Timeless Conflict not scaling with additional emblems in the Map Device.
  • Fixed a bug where the Maven Map Device button could be enabled but would not display.
  • Fixed a bug with the positioning of party members' names on the minimap.
  • Fixed a bug with the Nightfall Flame Dash Microtransaction effect sometimes showing a black box.
  • Fixed two instance crashes.
  • Fixed a client crash related to Harvest objects.
  • Fixed a common client crash.

The above fixes are already live.

Server and Database Issues

The day after the launch of Echoes of the Atlas we outlined some server and database issues that we were experiencing. You can check out the full details of this here.

We have made some big improvements so far and the problems are almost entirely fixed. We're still investigating a few cases of users being occasionally disconnected, and are working on improving our capacity for future launches.

As a consequence of our changes, it now takes five minutes (rather than two) for a player's online status to change on the trade site.

Console Launch

On January 20th at Noon (PST), we'll launch the Echoes of the Atlas expansion Xbox One and Playstation. This will include various hotfixes that have been deployed to the PC realm and also enable the Core Supporter Packs, Ritual Supporter Packs* and Warlord Mystery Box.

*Note that the Ritual Supporter Packs will appear five days later on PlayStation.

Ritual Feedback

The feedback to the Ritual Challenge League has been largely very positive and we're extremely pleased to see the community diving deep into its mechanics. We've noted some common feedback and will outline our responses below.

Add the ability to track which items have been deferred
We considered this but decided against it. It is too complicated and we feel it is not worth the significant development effort.

Don't show me items I can't afford to defer
The way that Ritual works is that you have a random number of monsters per Ritual per area and a randomly drawn pool of rewards with a floating Tribute rate. Because of this, in a few cases you might get a situation where the area spawned an expensive reward alongside a number of monsters that mean you can't generate enough tribute to defer that particular item. This is fortunately not too common but unfortunately there's no way to easily fix this without making Rituals more static and predictable.

In some rare cases, this may be caused by players only getting one Ritual site in an area. We haven't been able to reproduce this as a cause. If you find this happens for you, please report it by typing /bug when you experience the issue and taking a screenshot to share on the bug report forum. (Note that typing /bug automatically reports the issue to us but posting the screenshot with additional information is very helpful.)

We have modified the special Vaal Rituals that used to have a chance to make items very expensive. They only make them cheaper now.

Add a visual indicator to lead you to each Ritual site
At the moment, Rituals already appear on your minimap once you're a certain distance away from them. Generally speaking, our philosophy is that you should explore and discover the mechanics within an area as part of the gameplay experience. This also becomes less of a problem once you're playing Ritual in maps as most players aim to full-clear map zones to maximise their rewards.

In some areas, Ritual monsters get stuck behind walls making it hard to complete them
In a small number of cases, there are monsters that can teleport to inaccessible locations. We're planning to add a system that periodically checks that remaining monsters have the ability to walk to the centre of the Ritual. If it finds some that can't, it'll pull them into the middle. This would most likely be deployed some time next week.

Can we have a reminder to spend our Tribute before we leave an area?
We've discussed this as an option but there's no elegant and time-efficient way to do this, unfortunately.

Ritual FAQ

Can I lose my deferred item if I skip interacting with Ritual for a few areas?
If you don't re-defer an item, it will gradually become more expensive until it is back at its original price, and then it'll stop showing up any more. This process only happens if you interact with at least one Ritual in the area (so that if you briefly duck into the area, you don't risk affecting any deferred items).

Have I lost my deferred item?
Probably not, unless you've forgotten to spend your Tribute at the end of an area. When you defer an item, it will return in a random later area. Sometimes this is shortly after and sometimes it can take many areas before you'll see it again (depending on its value). This is an intended part of the design.

Are deferred items per-account or per-character?
They are per-character.

Miscellaneous

Some Harvest crafts can't be used in your hideout
This is an unfortunate technical limitation for a small number of crafts which require the results to be dropped on the ground. The current workaround is to take advantage of these crafts within the Sacred Grove itself, either immediately or from the horticrafting station available within the grove. Longer term, we’re looking at a solution involving these items being placed in your inventory instead of dropped on the ground.

Can we get a guaranteed invite for 10-boss fights?
We're changing this so that if you haven't completed a 10-boss fight in a region yet you'll automatically get a key for that fight when you capture your 10th boss in that region.

Can we have the option to disable the effect of Atlas Passives per map?
We are discussing this as an option but don't have any updates to report yet.

I don't like that I can't see my microtransactions when I have permanent phasing
We will disable the phasing visual effect when you have this skill allocated. Its primary purpose is seeing when you have phasing, but because it is permanent with this skill, it isn't really necessary.

Bugs and Technical Issues

Texture streaming
In 3.13.0 we improved how texture streaming works. This system uses low-resolution textures temporarily until the full textures are loaded, which helps with performance for people who have lower-end computers. Some players are reporting that this is causing performance issues for them. While we are working to further improve how texture streaming works, this shouldn't be the cause of any added performance issues.

If you're experiencing issues loading into particular areas, this is likely due to a memory leak issue that we are also currently investigating or perhaps another issue that we are unaware of.

Please report your experiences on the bug report forum with as many details about your computer specs as possible.

Why is the Trade website slow?
The site is under an extremely heavy load due to the high population and number of requests being made. Additionally, we periodically run a process that backs up the trade site and recently this process has temporarily pushed the trade site past its capacity. We have improved the back-up process so that this is smoother. You'll also note that it now takes around 5 minutes to appear online or offline on the trade site. This is currently in place to help mitigate the database issues we had earlier this week.

Crashes
We've resolved many of the most common crashes players have experienced since launch. We are continuing to investigate and resolve any others that persist. If you are experiencing this, please email customer support with your dxdiag file.

To generate a DXDiag report, please follow these steps:
  • 1) Press the windows key + R on your keyboard to bring up the Run dialogue box
  • 2) Type dxdiag into the Run dialogue box and press enter
  • 3) When the DXDiag application starts up, press the Save All Information button in the bottom right and save the report to your desktop to email through to us at support@grindingear.com

When I use a portal microtransaction, a different one than expected appears
This is happening with a small number of microtransactions. We expect this to be resolved in our next restart patch.

I can't open the Ritual Reward Screen with V if Alva is in my instance
This should be resolved in our next restart patch.

I can't start a Ritual if there is a Legion Monolith nearby
We have a fix for this internally but are still testing it so we don't have a timeline just yet.

The Silo map boss is invulnerable after being healed by the Maven
This should be resolved in our next restart patch.

Vaal Arc is not chaining correctly
This should be resolved in our next restart patch.

But I dont want have options to disable ALL sound, i just want disable sound of effects + world sounds+music. Other sound like voice,loot filter i want to stay on.
You can already do that in options and it works exactly as I described above.

If you disable effect sounds you remove them from computation completely.

It feels wrong to ask people to pay to see microtransactions they already paid for.

GGG Please disable the Phasing effect from Quartz Infusion. Bex_GGG 01/20

In our internal discussion about this, one of the first ideas raised was a toggle and it was decided against. I’ll raise it again just in case we have a shot of getting it through, but it’s worth preparing for a no.

GGG Please disable the Phasing effect from Quartz Infusion. Bex_GGG 01/20

It’s something we are still considering but if we moved forward with it, it wouldn’t apply to packs that are already in the store.

Any updates on the issues with the new texture streaming ? Bex_GGG 01/19

All good. We’ve all been there.

Yep, we are disabling the phasing visual effect for the Ascendancy class notables that have this.

Yes, we check every thread. We can’t reply to all of them unfortunately.

Any updates on the issues with the new texture streaming ? Bex_GGG 01/19

What people report the issue as, isn’t always what the issue is. We need time to gather info, test it ourselves, talk about what it is and figure out what the next step is and then figure out how to communicate about that. Sometimes that’s quick and sometimes it takes a minute. We can’t do this for every issue simultaneously either. With all that said, tomorrow’s news contains a big round up of discussion points that have been circling since launch and I’ve included a section about this.

This was a restartless deploy on the servers so you will need to restart your client to receive the client changes for this patch. Also, in order for the Domain of Timeless Conflict fix to take effect (for those on while it was deployed) you'll have to create a new Hideout through Helena, or let your Hideout instance timeout

I've confirmed with power siphon that the +1 max charges from "Conviction of Power" does not work.

I've now tried giving myself yet ANOTHER minimum endurance charge by equipping this sick amulet I found which gives "Disciple of the Unyielding* and it does not work correctly (still stuck at 4 endurance charges).


Thanks for your report, Maximum Charges takes priority over Minimum Charges. If your Maximum number of Endurance Charges is 4 and you have +5 to Minimum Endurance Charges you will only have 4 Endurance Charges. To gain the 5th Endurance Charge you will need to find another source of Maximum Endurance Charges.
