Later today, we're planning to deploy patch 3.18.1 which includes general improvements and bug fixes. In this news post we've prepared a preview of its patch notes to give you an idea of what to expect.

Please note that these are still subject to change prior to the patch's deployment.

3.18.1 Patch Notes

This patch contains a number of general improvements and bug fixes of both small- and medium-importance.

General Improvements and Changes

  • Improved the behaviour of some travel skills when repeated through Echoing Shrine or the Echoist modifier gained by killing monsters. Flame Dash, Whirling Blades and Dash now repeat in the same direction as the initial use. Shield Charge is now able to repeat, though only the larger area attack performed upon reaching your target is repeated. Attacking in place with Leap Slam now repeats in the same direction as the initial use.
  • The Thorned Vines debuff applied by monsters with the Entangler modifier no longer causes you to take 10% of your Maximum Life and Energy Shield as Chaos Damage if you use a travel skill while vined.
  • Monsters with the Magma Barrier modifier now only spawn Fire Volatiles when a player is within 70 units of them.
  • The Trickster Monster modifier can no longer be found on Monsters imprisoned in Essence Monoliths.
  • The number of Totems spawned from Rare Monster Packs with the Heralding Minions modifier is now limited to 5.
  • Reduced the damage of Molten Minotaur's enraged slam attack by 25%.
  • Time-frozen Legion monsters can no longer be empowered by Sentinels.
  • Essence Monoliths now display the modifiers and Tormented Spirits that are affecting or possessing the imprisoned Essence Monster.
  • Portals will now first open next to the Map Device interactable when opening a Map in the large Map Device.
  • Added a debuff visual for Wrath of the Cosmos to display how many stacks you have in an area.
  • Added the Sentinel Locker to the Guild Hideout Decorations list.
  • Added a Controller input keybind for copying the above Favoured Map to the selected Favoured Map Slot.
  • Updated various Atlas Passive Skill, Sextant and Eldritch Altar descriptions to clarify they only apply to the last Map Boss killed in a Map if there are multiple.
  • Updated Impossible Escape Unique Jewels obtained prior to the 3.18.0b patch that had rolled Phase Acrobatics to instead have Acrobatics.
  • Updated the description on the Purposeful Harbinger Cluster Jewel Notable to clarify it applies to Auras from your Skills, not those of your Allies.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where it was possible to earn credit towards the Complete Delirium Encounters Challenge by completing any Tier of 100% Delirious Map with at least four modifiers, rather than a 100% Delirious Tier 16 Map with at least four modifiers.
  • Fixed a bug where Energy Shield Leech could be removed upon reaching maximum Energy Shield with the Soul Drinker Ascendancy Passive Skill allocated from the Forbidden Flame and Forbidden Flesh Jewels.
  • Fixed a bug where the Life of some Delve Monsters could overflow from the Life Regeneration provided by standing on Consecrated Ground, causing them to die instantly but visually become untargetable.
  • Fixed a bug where Sentinel-empowered monsters could be harder to gain Fortification from with fortifying hits than they should be.
  • Fixed a bug where Atziri's Apparition was not using any skills in Vaal Ritual encounters.
  • Fixed a bug where a Summoned Holy Relic would become invisible after entering a new area or levelling up Summon Holy Relic gem.
  • Fixed a bug where some Monsters, most notably Breach Monsters, could appear with multiple of the same Monster modifier visual.
  • Fixed a bug where The Unbreakable's Magnetic Beam skill would visually flail around.
  • Fixed an issue where the vendor recipes for a Magic Weapon with an added elemental damage modifier was not working correctly with Bows.
  • Fixed a bug where some Alternate Art Uniques were not using their alternate 3D art.
  • Fixed a visual bug where Support Gems socketed in The Squire could appear to snapshot.
  • Fixed a bug where Bounty Targets from the Smuggling Routes Atlas Passive Skill could display their minimap icon while dead.
  • Fixed a bug where filtering in the Heist Locker was not functioning correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where Gem level-up buttons could sometimes re-shuffle when clicked.
  • Fixed a bug where pressing 'O' with the Options menu open could sometimes fail to close the menu.
  • Fixed a bug where attempting to store an item ignoring Affinites was not working for the Guild Stash in Controller input mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the Stellar Core in the Polaric Hideout could not be interacted with in Controller input mode.
  • Fixed a bug where the Minotaur Weapon Effect microtransaction was not working correctly.
  • Fixed a bug where the Darkprism Shield microtransaction was not playing its rotate animation correctly.
  • Fixed a clipping problem with the Wrangler Hat microtransaction.
  • Fixed three client crashes.

Good to see game breaking mechanics like effigy, adressed many times by players are getting fixed in this patch.

GGG cares about players and listens to them every single time, no more blue mosters randomly killing players.

Youre the best, this league deserves to be played.
Purchase Diablo IV, Poe 2 dead before release.

Wow, first time first page, and I'm gonna let you finish, but Ben is one of the best racers of all time.

Thanks, these have been really annoying (first one for a long time).


For those complaining about the Legion Sentinel interaction, maybe wait til the patch is live to try it. I think it only means the sentinels won't empower the frozen mobs - which would be a waste if you never break them out.

Hope to see some Large and X-Large improvements in future patches.

Magma Barrier fix!
A lot of super solid fixes in this one, especially the Echo-Travel fix.
great, but can you PLEASE allow leap slam/whirling blades/shield charge to break vines instantly?
