Content Update 3.11.0 -- Path of Exile: Harvest

The Harvest 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 Harvest Challenge League, you'll meet Oshabi, an Azmeri Mystic who has enlisted your help in exploring the mysterious powers of the Sacred Grove. In each area of Wraeclast, you'll discover a seed cache and will be able to travel through Oshabi's portal to the Sacred Grove to plant those seeds. Fully grown seed crops unearth dangerous monsters when harvested. 
  • Slaying these harvested monsters yields their Lifeforce, a powerful resource which can be used for crafting and growing more exotic crops. The crafting potential from Harvest monsters is immense, unlocking new power for both leveling and end-game players alike. 
  • Some harvested monsters may yield higher-tier seeds that require more elaborate garden setups but grant even more powerful crafting options. Climbing the tiers of seeds will eventually pit you against some powerful new bosses who can drop new unique items exclusively available from them.
  • With 3.11.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Harvest 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 Harvest Footprints. When you reach 24 challenges, you will receive the Harvest Cloak. At 36 challenges completed you'll receive the Harvest Portal. 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 Harvest Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Harvest challenges you completed during the league.

Minor New Content and Features

  • Alongside improvements made to Path of Exile's engine, we have changed the post-processing settings so that two specific ones are separately exposed: reducing the intensity of the new Bloom effect and disabling Blur effects (such as those played when transitioning into or out of an Incursion).
  • We have also improved how Screen Shake effects (such as those played on a critical hit) are handled, toning down the wild variance and ensuring you can always still see the action. This new screenshake can be disabled in options if desired.
  • Added 2 new Rogue Exiles, designed with the help of our talent competition winners.
  • Added new Labyrinth enchantments for both new and reworked skills.
  • Improved the visual effects of a number of player and monster skills, including Earthquake, Firestorm, Ground Slam, Ice Crash, Creeping Frost (previously Arctic Breath), Perforate, All Warcry skills, Sunder, Molten Strike, Tectonic Slam, Incinerate, Arc, Herald of Ash, Arcane Cloak, Armageddon Brand, Orb of Storms and Lightning Warp.

Delirium Mechanics Added to the Core Game

  • Delirium has been added to the core game. From the Torched Courts onwards, you'll have approximately a 5% chance to encounter a Mirror of Delirium in each area. Once you reach the Atlas, that chance will increase by a small amount for each other league, atlas or master mechanic that appears in that area. In other words, if your goal is to encounter Mirrors of Delirium then you are encouraged to use your Zana modifiers, master missions, sextants, and whatever else you have available to you!
  • You'll now have a greater chance of finding Cluster Jewels through Delirium encounters, proportional to the number of rewards you earn during that encounter.

  • Dual Wielding no longer grants 20% more physical attack damage. It still grants 10% more attack speed and 15% chance to block attack hits.

Skill Reworks

Warcries
  • Greater support for Warcries has been added to the Passive Skill Tree in the form of new and changed clusters, and even a new keystone.
  • Warcries no longer share a cooldown by default. All Warcries now have a base use time of 0.8sec, and their effects tend to linger for a greater duration. Their base cooldowns are also now longer.
  • Each Warcry is enhanced by the proximity of enemies, and for some warcries, allies or corpses too. This is measured as 'Power', with Normal enemies providing 1 Power, Magic enemies providing 2, Rare enemies providing 10, Unique enemies providing 20, and players providing 5. All Warcries also taunt enemies in range.
  • Warcries all now cause a certain number of attacks to become Exerted after the Warcry is used (except Enduring Cry and General's Cry, however the attacks done by the General's Cry Mirage Warriors are Exerted). Exerted attacks are enhanced in different ways depending on the Warcry. Your Exerted Attacks can benefit from the effects of multiple Warcries, if the type of attack is valid.

Abyssal Cry (now Infernal Cry)
  • Now taunts all nearby enemies to attack the user, and exerts the next 4 melee attacks. It also covers enemies in ash, slowing them and making them more vulnerable to fire damage. Causes enemies to explode when they die, dealing fire damage in an area.

  • Buff grants added Attack Damage equal to 3% of the damage of your main hand weapon per 5 power, up to a maximum of 20%. Counts both allies and enemies in range for power. This buff has 100% more effect on your minions.
  • Exerted attacks deal 5% more Damage per affected ally, up to 25%.
  • Now gains 1% increased Area of Effect per 1% gem quality.

  • Now has a base duration of 2 seconds.
  • Now grants 1 endurance charge per 5 power, with a minium of 1 charge.
  • Buff grants +2% to all resistances and 2% additional Physical Damage reduction per endurance charge.
  • Now causes you to regenerate 120 life over 1 second at gem level 1, up to 1976 at gem level 20.

Sunder
  • Now slams the ground, creating a slow wave of churning terrain that damages enemies in a sequence of areas in front of you. Enemies hit by the wave will release a damaging shockwave in an area around them. Using the skill again will stop the previous wave. Requires a Mace, Sceptre, Axe, Staff or Unarmed.
  • The wave creates 5 areas, and cannot stop before creating 2 areas.
  • There is a delay between areas the wave creates. The gem gains reduced delay between areas as it levels, up to 25% reduced delay between areas at gem level 20.
  • The wave can cause a shockwave from up to 5 enemies.
  • The wave gains +2 to the radius of each area in the sequence.

  • The spread of fissures has been partially-normalised, ensuring both sides of the main fissure will get at least one branching fissure.
  • Now deals base damage and has an added Damage effectiveness of 180% at gem level 1 (from 170%), up to 220% at gem level 20 (from 200%).

The existing Skills which are now considered Slam skills are: Ground Slam, Vaal Ground Slam, Leap Slam, Ice Crash, Earthquake, Vaal Earthquake, Sunder, Ancestral Warchief, Tectonic Slam, Perforate, Doryani's Touch, and Consecrated Path.

Totems

Passive Tree Balance

We've taken the opportunity with this patch to review the passive skill tree as a whole, with a few specific goals in mind:

  • We wanted to add support for mechanics that have been added in the past few years that as of yet do not have adequate support on the passive tree. Some of these mechanics include Rage, Unleash, Corpse manipulation, Warcries, Heralds and Banners.
  • Many passive skill clusters offered the same thing as other clusters, with the only differences being the location on the tree and the number of passive skills in the cluster. In this patch, we have endeavoured to give each cluster its own identity and function.
  • Timeless Jewel Keystone passives have become a popular feature for many builds, but are prohibitively difficult to acquire (especially without trade). We've moved some of the most build-defining Keystones out of the Timeless Jewels and into the tree itself. These Keystones have been added to the tree: The Agnostic, Glancing Blows, Supreme Ego, Wind Dancer and Eternal Youth.
  • We've also added new Keystones as part of our effort to support newer mechanics. These Keystones are: The Impaler, Imbalanced Guard and Call to Arms.
  • We also wanted to reduce the power of some clusters that were overly efficient, and increase the power of clusters that were inefficient. Ultimately, the passive skill tree should provide more interesting choices regardless of your build.
  • Due to the volume of the changes to the passive skill tree, we won't be listing each change out. Instead, you can check out the new tree for yourself here.

Two Handed Weapons

We've reviewed all Two-Handed weapon basetypes and have adjusted their attack damage, speed and implicits, with the goal of giving Two-Handed weapon builds a different feel to their dual-wield and one-handed counterparts, and to ensure that the damage you gain by using a Two-Hander made up for the lack of block and slower attack speed. All Two-Handed weapons have had their base damage increased by at least 15%, with axes in particular gaining even more damage.

Existing versions can be updated to new values (but not the new Leech modifier) with a Divine Orb.
  • The Whispering Ice: The Icestorm skill granted by this item now has an added damage effectiveness of 45% (from 30%). This affects all versions of the item.
  • White Wind: Now grants +1000-1500 Evasion Rating (from 300-400). Now grants 15-25% chance to Dodge attack hits while your Off Hand is empty (from 20%).

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where the Thunderstruck notable caused all hits against Shocked enemies to knock those enemies back, rather than just critical hits.
  • Fixed a bug where items with a fixed number of sockets (such as Loreweave or Oni-Goroshi) could have the number of sockets reduced through the hideout crafting bench, but not increased. Now, the number (or, if the item specificies, colour) of sockets can no longer be affected by the crafting bench.
  • Fixed a bug where Orb of Storms' hit frequency benefitted doubly from increases to cast speed.
  • Fixed a bug where Betrayal members on a Transportation job were teleporting too frequently.
  • Fixed a bug where brands hovered above Kitava's head (and typically offscreen).
  • Fixed a bug which caused the Arcane Capacitor notable to not correctly update the effect of Arcane Surge as mana was spent.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented mana reserved by Mines to not correctly update with increases and reductions to mana reservation.
  • Fixed a bug which caused Elemental Hit to not increase its area of effect when hitting enemies afflicted by Scorch, Brittle or Sap (despite them being valid ailments).
  • Fixed a bug where the Heraldry notable would continue to affect Heralds even after the cluster jewel was removed.
  • Fixed a bug where, due to some changes in how terrain is generated, a number of hideout templates became invalidated. They should work now.
  • Fixed a bug where the Withering Step effect lost an eye. It had no effect on accuracy as far as we know.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the many-faced totem in the Fields map boss room to become transparent if slain while under the effects of Delirium
  • Fixed a bug which made some of the cliffs darker than they should have been. Wraeclast IS dark, just not like that.
  • Fixed a bug where using the Celestial Leap Slam cosmetic could make your limbs disappear.
  • Fixed a typo in the skill description of Stormbind.
  • Fixed a bug where Cassia could appear in the Twilight Temple unique map.
  • Fixed several modifiers that didn't have names.
  • Fixed a bug where some non-monsters (such as Nemesis mod Lightning Clones) could get Delirium modifiers.
  • Fixed several Metamorph skills that were using the wrong visual effects.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the area of effect of Lightning Whip used by several monsters to get way too big.
  • Fixed a bug which caused the skill tooltip of the Void Shot skill to change.
  • Fixed a bug where totems played both the old and the new versions of the Barrage arrow launch effect at once.
  • Fixed a bug which caused particles created by the Orion Body Armour microtransaction to linger.
  • Fixed a bug where the Lightning Wings microtransaction didn't scale with the player character's size when it changed.
  • Fixed some bad visual interactions between Steelskin and several glowy cosmetics.
  • Fixed a number of other wonky microtransaction interactions.
  • Fixed a bug where one of the new Vaal Side Areas didn't actually look like a Vaal Side Area when you went inside.
  • Fixed an instance crash related to Summon Phantasm.
  • Fixed a bug where the Barrage effect, when used by a mine, faced the wrong direction.
  • Fixed a bug where Glacial Cascade mines wouldn't target Betrayal Fortress doors.

  • Fixed a crash related to the Glorious Vanity keystone.
  • Fixed a quest state case that could prevent progress on the Atlas.
  • Fixed an erroneous error which said your map tier was too low to produce an Elderslayer encounter when it wasn't.
  • Fixed a bug which, after failing to complete an Atlas Citadel, would retain the influence visual effect on the Atlas but remove the progress bar (the influence should have disappeared as well).
  • Fixed an instance crash related to Frostbolt.
  • Fixed a bug where Leash of Oblation's multiple-offering effect would allow multiple offerings to persist if the item were removed after the offerings were cast.
  • Fixed a bug where binding Brand Recall to the left mouse button and then moving around could potentially have you kicked offline for performing too many actions.
  • Fixed an instance crash related to projectiles and Kineticism.
  • Fixed a bug where looting an item while in a party with loot allocation set required an extra click if the allocation changed while the cursor was held over the item.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause brands to occasionally not be recalled by Brand Recall.
  • Fixed a bug where skills with a cooldown shared by other skills and a buff duration (such as Guard Skills) would become unusable in that instance if the gem was removed while the buff was active.
  • Fixed a bug which caused brands to visibly linger indefinitely.
  • Fixed a bug where separate gems of the same skill with a cooldown would not be on cooldown if they were socketed while the other skill gem was on cooldown.
  • Fixed a bug where Riposte would place a mace effect if it was triggered while unarmed. You may hit like a hammer, but that does not actually make your arm a hammer.
  • Fixed a bug where Molten Shell's effect would linger indefinitely if the skill gem were replaced by a Vaal Molten Shell gem during the original gem's duration.
  • Fixed weird Grandmaster behaviour related to changes made to Cyclone in previous patches.
  • Fixed a bug where Scout minions from a Scout Tower still behaved as if they had their original range if you had a Blight Ring Annointment that increased their range.
  • Fixed a number of cases where monster skills could potentially hit players that were not in line of sight.
  • Fixed a bug where Arcane Cloak could consume Energy Shield or Life instead of Mana as part of its extra spending.

  • Fixed a bug which caused the trail on the Harlequin Leap Slam cosmetic to vanish.
  • Fixed the appearance of many items on Animated Guardians.
  • Fixed a bug where leaving a map where Alva was present for an extended period of time could prevent you from doing any remaining Incursions when you returned.
  • Fixed a bug where, very rarely, party members would create a new instance of your hideout when using the Visit Hideout button, and would thus close any open map portals in the existing hideout instance.
  • NEW:Fixed a bug where dying in a map where Alva was present could under certain circumstances prevent you from doing any remaining Incursions when you returned.

Recently Added

Molten Strike
  • Projectiles now have a minimum travel distance of 2 units (from 6) and a maximum travel distance of 25 (from 20) by default. Modifiers to projectile speed, as well as modifiers to area of effect, now affect the distance projectiles can travel.

User Interface Improvements
  • If you have no reclaimable hideout decorations, the button which reclaims all hideout decorations is replaced with a button that instead resets your hideout to its default layout.
  • You can now instantly buy all decorations (that cost only Favour) that your hideout template needs, as long as you have unlocked them and have enough Favour to do so.
  • Improved the error messages displayed when there are problems importing a hideout template, including one that will specify how much more Favour you need to buy missing decorations.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug where dying in a map where Alva was present could under certain circumstances prevent you from doing any remaining Incursions when you returned.

Less Duration Support
  • Now gains 0.5% less Skill Effect Duration per 1% gem quality (from 0.5% reduced Skill Effect Duration per 1% gem quality).

Unique Items Balance
  • Al Dhih: No longer triggers Abyssal Cry on hit. Existing versions of this item now trigger level 1 Intimidating Cry on hit. New versions now cause enemies taunted by your Warcries to explode on death, dealing 8% of their maximum life as Chaos Damage. Now grants 25% increased Warcry buff effect (from 50%). Existing versions will be updated to the new values if you use a Divine Orb. Now causes Warcry skills to have a cooldown of 4 seconds (from 2). This change affects all versions of this item.
  • The Scourge: New copies of this item no longer have a chance to trigger Summon Spectral Wolf on kill. Now causes increases and reductions to Minion Damage to also affect you at 150% of their value (from 100%), which affects all versions of the item. Existing versions of this item now trigger level 10 Summon Spectral Wolf on kill (from 18), however the skill has been significantly changed, and you are now granted added physical damage to attacks. The minions from this skill are now also affected by your modifiers to critical strike chance and critical strike multiplier. In other words, it's a lot better now.
Ascendancy Balance
  • Chieftain's Hinekora, Death's Fury now grants 100% chance to Cover Rare or Unique Enemies in Ash for 10 Seconds on Hit (from 20%).
  • Berserker's War Bringer has been redesigned. It now causes Warcries to grant 10 Rage per 5 Power if you have less than 25 Rage, and causes them to sacrifice 10 Rage if you have at least 25 Rage. It also causes Exerted Attacks to deal 50% more Damage if a Warcry sacrificed Rage recently.
Ball Lightning
  • Now has a base cast time of 0.7 seconds (from 0.75).

We really hope you enjoy Path of Exile: Harvest. Thanks for your support!
