There’s a new update for Path of Exile now available for download on PC. Patch 3.20.1b implements a lot of bug fixes - one of which is something that fans of Vaal Venom Gyre don’t want to hear, especially if they’re playing on Ruthless Mode.

Venom Gyre is a projectile skill in Path of Exile that can be used with claws and daggers. What makes this particular skill special is that the projectiles return to you after they’ve reached their maximum distance. After catching these projectiles, you can unleash them using Whirling Blades. This enables you to “shotgun” enemies, dealing massive damage.

The “Vaal” version of the skill skips the catching part, so you basically have projectiles that are ready to be launched with Whirling Blades.

That said, Vaal Venom Gyre can no longer be obtained in Ruthless. Apparently, there was a bug that made the skill accessible in the said game mode. Well, it was fun while it lasted.

You can read the other bug fixes implemented in Patch 3.20.1b below:

  • Fixed a display bug with the last remaining item not being removed from the list when purchased from the Merchant.
  • Fixed a bug where the hideout decorations panel could sometimes fail to load.
  • Fixed a bug where it was possible to snapshot Curses applied to yourself from Ylfeban's Trickery.
  • Fixed a bug where it was not possible to dismiss NPCs from your Hideout.
  • Fixed a bug where at least one Anointed Blighted Map was not offered by Kirac after using a Blighted Scouting Report.
  • Fixed a bug where monsters with both Periodically Enrages and Cycling Damage Reduction modifiers could become immune to damage.
  • Fixed a bug where Ghorr, the Grasping Maw could displace Blight Towers with their grasp skill.
  • Fixed a visual bug where Ruthless' "Map Drop Chance" was displayed on unidentified Maps with Quality in non-Ruthless Leagues.
  • Fixed a bug where Vaal Cyclone did not roll for critical strikes for each hit, instead only rolling when first used.
  • Fixed a bug where clones of Lokan, The Deceiver were being revived by Rituals.
  • Fixed a bug where Support Gems at their maximum gem level could not be sacrificed for the Facetor's Lens Harvest crafting option.
  • Fixed a bug where socket icons for Resonators on the ground were black, they are now orange.
  • Fixed a bug where modifiers that add Fire, Cold or Lightning attack damage per Strength, Dexterity or Intelligence were not applying to attacks made using off-hand weapons.
  • Fixed a bug which could make a Simulacrum wave incompletable if a monster which spawned on death was stuck inside terrain.
  • Fixed a bug with the interaction of Cursed Ground Support and Hexblast totems, traps, or mines which allowed you to have multiple areas of Cursed Ground.
  • Fixed a bug where Elemental Weakness applied by the Font of Elements in the Labyrinth was increasing player Resistances rather than decreasing them.
