Developer Grinding Gear Games released Patch 3.19.1 for Path of Exile recently. This massive update brought plenty of changes, particularly to Lake of Kalandra content and rare monsters with Archnemesis modifiers.

Reflecting Mist in Path of Exile is an interactable mechanic introduced in the Lake of Kalandra expansion. It allows you to create rare rings and amulets that are exact reflections of one another. The key difference here is that the stats on one accessory are opposite to that of the other. For example, if one ring gives you plus 124 HP, the other ring reduces HP by the same amount. Ultimately, you choose only one accessory that perfectly suits your build.

That said, the number of Reflecting Mists you will encounter in a Lake of Kalandra run is increased by roughly 50% in Patch 3.19.1.

Another major change is that rare monsters spawned during boss fights are now limited to just two Archnemesis modifiers. This is a pretty big one since these modifiers make rare monsters so much harder to defeat. If they’ll only get a maximum of two mods from now on, boss fights will be a lot more bearable.

Here are the other noteworthy changes:

Lake of Kalandra
  • The remaining uses of the Reroll, Skip, and Exile Reflection Abilities for the Mirrored Tablet are no longer shared between all characters in a League.
  • Breachlords spawned in Reflection of the Breachlord now spawn closer to the start of the Breach.
  • Widened some bridges connecting Reflection Tiles in the Lake of Kalandra.
  • The Heralding Minions Archnemesis modifier can no longer be found on Delve monsters in the Azurite Mine. Monsters spawned at Legion, Breach or Beyond encounters in the Azurite Mine can still be found with this modifier.
  • Rare monsters that do not drop loot are now limited to 2 Archnemesis modifiers.
  • The Aura from the Executioner Archnemesis modifier and Verdant Spores inflicted by the Healing Nova from the Rejuvenating Archnemesis modifier no longer affect Player minions.
  • The Life of Beyond Bosses has been lowered by roughly 5%, and the Life of all other Beyond monsters has been lowered by approximately 60%.
  • Improved the outcome odds for the Tainted Orb of Fusing, Tainted Jeweler's Orb and Tainted Mythic Orb.
  • Beyond Bosses can no longer spawn in Temporal Incursions.
  • Lowered the damage dealt to minions by League monster skills and endgame Map Boss skills that felt punishing, for example, Shaper's Beam and Slam skills, Tul, Creeping Avalanche's Barrage skill, and many of Sirus, Awakener of Worlds' skills, amongst many others.
  • Lowered the number of Rare and Magic monsters spawned during Harvest Boss encounters.

Path of Exile Patch 3.19.1 is available on PC.
