Other Known Issues (PC)

  • Converted unique maps revert to base tier
  • Rare case with Sirus fight, desync, skills being used when they shouldn't be. e.g. teleports into storms
  • Rare case where Maligaro sometimes can't be killed in Overgrown Shrine.
  • Detonate Mines "Always Attacking Without Moving" resetting in new instances.
  • Portals placed in blocking can fail to let the player back in (e.g. Cold River stairs).
  • Elemental Overload damage increase doesn't change tooltip DPS
  • Lethe Shade not increasing the duration of Ailments reflected back to you
  • Legion Generals not retreating again.
  • Harvest T4 bosses not transitioning
  • Totems/Traps/Mines not culling when using Marked for Death

  • Missing Challenge Rewards: Please use the /recheck_achievements chat command if this occurs
  • Divination Card Tab misses a column in high resolutions


Vulkan renderer problems:
If you are experiencing any new crashes and you're using Vulkan, please try switching to 'Medium' texture quality. If you're still crashing after that, we recommend switching to DirectX 11 or 12 in your options.

Before referring to this list, please try updating your drivers first.
Out of date drivers may not support Vulkan correctly and can cause various problems.
  • Client crash when changing renderer type
  • Visual artefacts when running low on GPU memory
  • Problems with Vsync not working properly
  • Rare case of Mouse Cursor not displaying

DirectX 12 renderer problems:
Before referring to this list, please try updating your drivers first.
Out of date drivers may not support DirectX 12 correctly and can cause various problems.
  • Texture Streaming problems when running low on VRAM, or on machines with low VRAM (recommend using DirectX 11 instead)
  • Resizing window can sometimes temporarily display incorrectly

  • Client crashes when using mouse to whisper from social screen while using Controller input

  • Item filter audio sometimes cuts out

  • Unique Collection Tab not loading in the Character Viewer

macOS Known Issues:
  • While running around, you may occasionally see a black tile on the edge of the screen briefly. This is an engine quirk that occurs with the Windows version also, but it's more pronounced in our current Mac version.
  • Note that because Command+Q is technically the keystroke to use the Ctrl+Q skill binding, you can use Command+Option+Q to close the game client in a hurry.

How to Report Bugs

It is always a good idea to back up your content.ggpk file. It will let you restore the game to a previous patch if your client becomes corrupt.

In-game Reports:

You can use the "/bug" command to report bugs to us directly while playing the game. This is ideal for bugs where there is an immediately recognisable issue (such as a terrain problem). You can also type additional information after "/bug" that will be sent along with your bug report, for example: "/bug I'm experiencing this problem and here are the steps to reproduce it".

For reports where more information is required, the problem is not apparent, or the steps to reproduce are a bit more in-depth, we would recommend reporting the issue via the forums using the below steps.

Forum Reports:

1. Check this thread for an existing issue

2. Take a screenshot with debug info
Enter "/debug" into chat and take a screenshot by pressing F8. The screenshot is saved to your Documents/My Games/Path of Exile Folder.

3. If it is a graphical problem, we also need your PC specs
Include Operating System (Windows version), RAM/memory, video card, and anything else relevant.

4. Post it
If you post in the forums keep your title descriptive. We may not be able to reply, but we do check every post when we have the chance. The more descriptive your title, the greater chance it will be noticed and fixed, and the easier our jobs are!

How to post an image

  • Upload the file to an image hosting website, such as Imgur
  • Mouse over the image and click the 3 dots in the corner, then click "Get share links"
  • Click the "Copy" button for BBCode (Forums)
  • Paste that into your Path of Exile forum post

If you can't get a screenshot, we need as much as you can tell us about reproduction steps. The zone you were in, the skills you were using, the monsters you were fighting - anything that might point us towards the cause of the problem!

If you get a Client or Instance crash, we receive a report automatically the next time you start your client. Report it here in a thread only if you have reproduction steps that will let us find the problem.

Important! Make sure you only have one bug per report. We want to be able to resolve reports if bugs are fixed, or have others be able to respond to bugs easily.

Also, confirm that there are no other threads reporting this issue, and post your bug in there if that is the case.

More reports are always good, but only if they are in one place, rather than spread over many different threads. To search only the Bug Reports forum, navigate to Forum Search and select the Bug Reports option from the 'Forums' list.
