Developer GGG has revealed some of the things that you can expect later this week. Path of Exile Patch 3.17.1 will bring improvements and bug fixes for the Archnemesis League, as well as Siege of the Atlas content.

Endgame Improvements

There are a couple of things that will change with regards to Officer Kirac, the NPC that introduces you to the Map System, and the Atlas of Worlds.

Anyway, completing Unique maps will no longer count towards your highest completed map tier for both Atlas and Kirac missions. Furthermore, you can sell items to Kirac once the update is released.

The Eater of Worlds is one of the pinnacle bosses introduced in Patch 3.17. That said, some changes can be expected. For one, the area of effect for its Ultimate Slam skill is increased. In addition, the elemental, physical, and chaos damage leeched as life implicit modifiers had incorrect values. Thus, it will range from 0.2% to 1.1% when the patch drops.


  • Added stash tab search functionality for Searing Exarch and Eater of Worlds items
  • Fixed a bug where you were unable to turn in the "Death and Rebirth" and "Safe Passage" quests if you had progressed to The Karui Shores
  • Fixed a bug where the user interface for The Searing Exarch and The Eater of Worlds Altars could re-appear after you had selected an option
  • Archnemesis recipes now also highlight when outside of encounters
  • Fixed a bug where modifiers used in a previous Archnemesis encounter within the same area could display as if they were able to be used again
  • Fixed a bug where the Archnemesis inventory did not update the highlighting of modifiers when their positions were swapped
  • The Manifest Dancing Dervishes skill, triggered by The Dancing Dervish Unique Item, now provides a chance to gain a Rampage kill when minions hit a Rare or Unique Enemy (previously only Unique enemies)
  • Fixed a bug preventing Shift+V from undoing Expedition explosive placements
  • Fixed a bug where Metamorph monsters could sometimes be unkillable
  • Fixed a bug where the Veiled and Crafted Modifiers that cause Non-Aura Skills to cost no Mana or Life while Focused was disabled
  • Fixed a bug where added Fire, Cold, and Lightning Damage Crafted Modifiers for Bows were using values for one-handed weapons instead of two-handed weapons
  • Fixed a bug where Helmet Enchantments that provided modifiers to Mark Duration could still be obtained
  • Fixed a bug where increased Trap and Mine Throwing Speed could be rolled twice on Belts. The Essence and Crafted modifiers are now part of the same modifier family
