Content Update 2.6.0 Patch Notes

Content Update 2.6.0

The Legacy 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 2.6.0, there are Standard and Hardcore variations of the Legacy challenge league available. They have the same core mechanics and items.
  • Path of Exile: Legacy pays homage to the leagues and items of the past. Do you want to experience the heart-stopping surprise encounters of Invasion, risk valuable items for even more valuable rewards in Talisman, or acquire powerful crafting items in Essence? In the Legacy league, you can choose your own challenges, and even mix and match them.
  • You can find and equip up to three Leaguestones at once, which turn the next area you enter into a supercharged version of all of those leagues. Leaguestones can also drop with modifiers, which makes those areas both more challenging and more rewarding. If you've ever wanted to fight a triple-Essence Avian Retch holding a Talisman while a Corrupting Tempest is active, now's your chance.
  • Many of Path of Exile's most desirable unique items were only available during past leagues. In the Legacy league, when a leaguestone is active, you have a chance to find unique items from that league. We have reviewed league-specific uniques dating back to the first challenge leagues and have improved many that we felt were not relevant to the current state of Path of Exile. So while Shavronne's Revelation, Headhunter, Scold's Bridle and more are within your grasp, they may not be the only ones you want.
  • Players in the Legacy league may find a special item that, when placed in the map device, allows travel to a Reliquary. These treasure chambers contain a chest that can drop a Relic - a special alternate-frame version of an iconic unique item from Path of Exile's history, restored to its original balance values. There are over 40 different Relics to find, and the powerful ones are very rare. We're mindful of the impact these could have on existing legacy items, so these will be clearly identifiable and commensurately rare.
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you will receive the Legacy Footprints Effect. At 24, you will receive the Legacy Weapon Effect. When you complete your 36th challenge, you will receive the Legacy 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 Legacy Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Legacy challenges you completed during the league.

Solo Self-Found Mode
  • Solo Self-Found (SSF) is common self-enforced playstyle where trading and partying are not allowed. This means that your character's progress is entirely based on your own efforts and cannot be influenced by other players.
  • In Content Update 2.6.0, there are SSF versions of the existing leagues, where you can create characters by ticking a checkbox on the character creation screen.
  • This mode is available once you have rescued the Scion on your account (which can be done in a previous league, so almost all existing players will already have fulfilled this).
  • While playing an SSF character, you can't trade or party up with other players.
  • You're able to convert your SSF characters into regular characters, moving them back to the equivalent non-SSF league. This is a one-way process and can be done by clicking the buttons to the left of the character on the character selection screen. One button moves just a single character, and the other one moves all your SSF characters in that league including your stashes, hideout, masters and Atlas progress.
  • Ladders on the website record what level you reached in SSF before moving back to the regular leagues. Characters that have moved back to the regular leagues are marked as "retired".
  • SSF leagues share their global chat channels with their non-SSF equivalent. They have no access to trade chat channels.

  • Local Added Physical Damage modifiers to One-handed weapons have had their values increased by 10%. Using a Divine Orb will cause existing mods to be updated to the new values.
  • Weapon critical strike chances have been adjusted. Most critical chance values have been reduced on base types that could have over 6.5% base critical chance. This is to create a more distributed choice of weapon types for critical strike characters.

  • Maraketh Two Handed Axes now have 50% increased local Critical Chance, up from 25%/25%/40% on Talon Axe, Dagger Axe and Fleshripper

Area of Effect Balance Changes
  • In this update, we are removing the concept of "Increased Radius of Area Skills" and replacing it with "Increased Area of Effect" for all skills, items and passives. The broad impact of this change is that early increases to area of effect will be significant and impactful, while every subsequent point will be less and less noticeable. Previously, each point spent towards increasing the radius of area skills was better than the last, making accumulation of the stat far too desirable.
  • Players who went out of their way to get as many sources of increased radius of area skills as they could will see significant reductions in their skill area of effect.
  • With this change we are hoping to make increasing the area of effect for skills a meaningful, and eventually costly, decision.

In light of this change, area of effect skills have been reviewed and the base radius of many skills has been adjusted:
  • Static Strike's radius has increased from 16 to 19 units.
  • Earthquake's initial hit radius has been reduced from 20 to 18 units.
  • Shockwave Totem's radius has increased from 20 to 24 units.
  • Blade Flurry's radius has gained 2 units on all of its ranges. (The damage area has increased from 12 to 14 units, the channelling targeting area has increased from 15 to 17 units and the release targeting area has increased from 17 to 19 units.)
  • Blast Rain's radius has increased from 20 to 24 units.
  • Contagion's radius has increased from 18 to 20 units.
  • Righteous Fire's radius has increased from 14 to 18 units.
  • Ball Lightning's radius has increased from 16 to 20 units.
  • Glacial Cascade's radius has increased from 10 to 14 units.
  • Blade Vortex's radius has increased from 14 to 15 units.
  • Kinetic Blast's radius has increased from 10 to 14. Kinetic Blast's spread of explosions has also been increased to avoid overlapping with the primary target as a result of the changes to the explosion radius.

Skills which used to gain increased area of effect radius as they levelled no longer do. Instead, the following skills gain additional base radius at certain intervals:
  • Cleave gains 1 additional unit of radius every 3 levels.
  • Ground Slam gains 1 additional unit of radius every 3 levels.
  • Sunder gains 1 additional unit of radius every 3 levels.
  • Fire Trap gains 1 additional unit of radius every 3 levels.
  • Lightning Tendrils gains 1 additional unit of radius every 3 levels.
  • Storm Call gains 1 additional unit of radius every 3 levels.
  • Shrapnel Shot gains 1 additional unit of radius every 4 levels.
  • Lacerate gains 1 additional unit of radius every 4 levels.
  • Cold Snap gains 1 additional unit of radius every 4 levels.
  • Righteous Fire gains 1 additional unit of radius every 4 levels.
  • Static Strike gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.
  • Sweep gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.
  • Caustic Arrow gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.
  • Blade Vortex gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.
  • Rain of Arrows gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.
  • Blight gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.
  • Reave gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.
  • Fireball gains 1 additional unit of radius every 6 levels.
  • Vaal Reave gains 1 additional unit of radius every 5 levels.

Support Gems:
  • Melee Splash Support now gains 3% more area of effect per level (from 1% radius per level).
  • Increased Area of Effect Support now grants 30% increased area of effect at level 1 (from 20% increased radius of area skills), up to 49% increased area of effect at level 20 (from 39%). This is a significant reduction to the area of effect provided by the gem.
  • Concentrated Effect Support now has 30% less Area of Effect for supported skills (from 25% less Radius) and now grants 35% More Area Damage at Level 1 (from 40%) to 54% More Area Damage at Level 20 (from 59%).

Other skill changes:
  • Static Strike no longer has any variance in the size of the explosion between uses.
  • Reave and Vaal Reave now gains 50% more area of effect per stage, instead of 20% more radius per stage.

The following passive skills have been adjusted:
  • Bone Breaker now grants 8% increased area of effect.
  • Amplify now grants 10% increased area of effect.
  • Blast Radius now grants 10% increased area of effect.
  • Leadership now grants 50% increased aura area of effect.
  • Volatile Mines now grants 8% increased area of effect.
  • Hex Master now grants 40% increased curse area of effect.
  • Champion of the Cause now grants 20% increased aura area of effect.
  • Explosive Impact now grants 8% increased area of effect.
  • All of the increased area of effect bonuses on the tree on all non-notable passive skills now grant 8% (up from 5%).
  • All of the increased aura area of effect bonuses on the tree on all non-notable passive skills now grant 20% (up from 12%).
  • Unstable Munitions now grants 8% increased area of effect.
  • All of the increases to trap trigger radius and mine detonation radius have also been changed to increased area of effect. As a result, all of these values have been doubled on the passive tree.

Ascendancy Skill Changes:
  • Endless Munitions (Deadeye) now grants 50% increased area of effect.
  • Impact (Slayer) now grants 20% increased area of effect. The non-notable skill preceding Impact now grants 10% increased area of effect.
  • Illuminated Devotion (Hierophant) now grants 40% increased area of effect.
  • Bomb Specialist (Saboteur) now grants 8% increased area of effect for each Mine.
  • Chain Reaction (Saboteur) now grants 20% increased area of effect for Traps.
  • Pendulum of Destruction's area of effect modifier is unchanged.

All items which previously granted increased radius of area skills now instead grant increased area of effect at the same values. We will monitor the impact of this change closely.

In addition to the change to increased area of effect, the following items have also had their values modified (a Divine Orb can be used on existing items to receive these changes):
  • Star of Wraeclast now gives 60% increased area of effect of curses, instead of 30% increased curse radius.
  • Victario's Influence now has 20-40% increased aura area of effect, instead of 10-20% increased aura radius.
  • Victario's Charity now has 20% aura area of effect, instead of 10% aura radius.
  • Hair Trigger now has 40-60% trap trigger area, instead of 20-30% trap trigger radius.

Threshold Jewels (Divine Orbs cannot be used for this change):
  • The Rolling Flames jewel previously granted up to 50% increased radius to fireball projectiles as they travel. New copies of the jewel grants up to +4 radius. A shared limit of 2 Rolling Flames jewels in the passive tree has been imposed on both existing and new copies of the jewel. Existing copies will now grant 50% increased area at maximum distance, instead of radius.

In most cases, monster area of effect remains unchanged. There will be some cases (such as monsters using Reave, which will start with a larger area but grow less per stack) that will experience minor changes.

The following changes have been made to map mods which granted increased radius of area skills to monsters. Despite these values being much higher, they will have the same impact as the original mods. Existing maps with these mods will have a much smaller impact on the area of effect of monsters:
  • Of Giants now grants monsters 45% increased area of effect on tier 5 and lower maps, 70% increased area of effect on tier 6 to 10 maps, and 100% increased area of effect on tier 11 and higher maps.
  • Titan's now grants the unique boss 45% increased area of effect on tier 5 and lower maps, 55% increased area of effect on tier 6 to 10 maps, and 70% increased area of effect on tier 11 and higher maps.

New Zana Mods for Legacy League
  • Because Legacy returns many previous challenge leagues, we're trying out a different approach to Zana mods for the next three months.
  • Zana Mods now obey similar rules to the rolling of items. Monster Life, for example, cannot be applied to a map that already has a Monster Life mod.
  • Area is inhabited by Spiders cannot be applied to a map that already has a mod which causes that area to be inhabited by other monsters.
  • These new mods cannot be applied to unidentified maps.
  • Zana still has her basic Item Quantity mods that can be applied to maps, including unidentified ones.
  • Note that the Monster Life IV and Monster Damage IV provide more damage and life bonuses than you would normally be able to get on a map, but also give more Item Quantity and Rarity bonuses than normal.

  • Monsters from Beyond, 3 Chaos Orbs: Slaying Enemies close together can attract Monsters from Beyond, 12% increased Quantity of Items found in this Map, 6% increased Rarity of Items found in this Map.

One-time Passive Skill Reset:
  • Due to balance changes, every existing character has been granted an optional full passive skill reset.
  • This process will also reset your allocated Ascendancy points.
  • To perform this operation, click the "Reset all Passives" button on the passive skill screen. Note that you must use this before allocating or refunding any other points otherwise the option will go away.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed some issues with walkability being blocked in the Forge of the Phoenix map.
  • Fixed a bug where after a league merge, it was possible to get into a bad state where some Shaper's Orbs could never drop
  • Fixed a bug where the the lighting environment could be incorrect after completing a Zana mission inside another map.
  • Fixed a bug where Ball Lighting would sometimes play its audio a second time before it expires.
  • Fixed further issues with fog of war visibility on the Atlas screen.
  • Fixed a bug with the Ancient Ruins where inaccessible monsters could spawn, occasionally making certain Master missions impossible.
  • Fixed a bug where Labyrinth/Trial traps would do too much damage to you if your energy shield was protecting your mana instead of your life.
  • Phase Run now cancels properly if a channelling skill renews
  • Fixed an issue where Shield Charge had two separate damage modifiers at gem level 2 and above, which displayed as "Deals 50% base damage, Deals 101.2% of base damage". These have been combined into one modifier.
  • Fixed a bug where the Shaper audio was swapped in the Phoenix and Minotaur maps.
  • Removed the invulnerability buff applied to Izaro when he is waiting to flee from his arena. This fixes an issue where Izaro would attack, but couldn't be attacked back, preventing Life Leech.
  • Monsters holding a Remnant of Corruption now correctly indicate that they cannot have life leeched from them.

I think this patch is a better time than any to remind everyone that there's literally no reason to ever play Inquisitor, as it can't benefit from double dipping. You're always better off playing Elementalist.
