Path of Exile players now have a fighting chance against rare monsters with the Storm Strider mod, thanks to the changes implemented in Patch 3.19.0g.

For those who don’t know, monsters with the Storm Strider Archnemesis mod leave shocked ground in their wake. Players who stand on this shocked ground will get a debuff that increases the damage taken from all sources. Aside from that, monsters with this modifier also summon Lightning Mirages when hit. These mirages will get close to players, detonating themselves and dealing lightning damage in the process.

In Patch 3.19.0g, Lightning Mirages will now spawn a bit far away from the player instead of right on top of them. This gives players enough time to react to these detonating enemies. Moreover, monsters with the Storm Strider mod now have a two-second global cooldown before they can trigger a Lightning Mirage when hit. This means that fewer Lightning Mirages will spawn during the encounter overall, provided that players can quickly dispatch monsters with the said modifier.

This update brought some improvements as well. The terrain collision size of the projectiles created by Spark and Lightning Strike is reduced by 50%. Additionally, the tiles in Lake of Kalandra that have already been completed are now faded out on the Lake Map.
