Patch 3.17.2 is now available for Path of Exile. This update brings adjustments to the Corrosive Hunger debuff. It also contains a lot of improvements and bug fixes.

The Infinite Hunger is one of the Eldritch Horrors introduced in the Siege of the Atlas expansion and is located in the Seething Chyme. When players fight the Infinite Hunger, they will get Corrosive Hunger, which is a debuff that stacks indefinitely.

Back then, the debuff gave a -400 reduction to armor and evasion rating per stack. But now, it has been changed to -1% physical damage reduction and -1% chance to evade per stack. This adjustment makes the debuff a lot more bearable than before. On top of that, stacks of Corrosive Hunger are now removed completely when the boss drowns you and teleports you away.


  • Oil that has been set alight is now treated as Burning Ground, and applies a Burning Ground debuff, rather than Burning Oil
  • The number of Prefix and Suffix modifiers on an item is no longer preserved when rerolling modifiers using an Eldritch Chaos Orb
  • Added a new “/atlaspassives” chat command that details the sources of your Atlas Passive Points, and those you may still be missing from quests
  • The Fragment Stash Tab can now hold Eldritch and Maven Invitations
  • Items contained in the Gem and Flask Stash Tabs are now listed alphabetically within categories
  • The "Convert Maps" button on the Map Stash Tab is now only usable if you have at least 1 non-remove only Map Stash set to the current map series
  • Showing Advanced Mod Descriptions is not an option anymore, it is now always on
  • The Vaal Omnitect and Atziri, Queen of the Vaal are now also untargetable whilst they are invulnerable, preventing Minions from prioritizing them over other monsters
  • Fixed an issue where Drox, The Warlord's Glove Cascade was dealing more damage than intended in Maven's "The Elderslayers" Invitation
  • Fixed a bug with Kirac Missions where Shaper- and Elder-Influence was not applying correctly to Maps
  • Fixed a bug where Eldritch Orbs of Annulment, Eldritch Chaos Orbs, and Eldritch Exalted Orbs could be used on items that did not have empty Sockets
  • Fixed a bug where crafting recipe unlock interactables were sometimes not present in the Caldera, Marshes, Promenade, and Wasteland Maps
  • Fixed an issue where you could sometimes be disconnected for performing too many actions if you had Berserk bound to left-click
  • Fixed a client crash that could occur with Phantasmal Seismic Trap
