The Prophecy Challenge Leagues
June's 2.3.0 Content Update marks the beginning of both a typical and Hardcore version of the Prophecy Challenge League. These leagues have self-contained economies and supply a chance for you to enjoy a clean slate and demonstrate your mastery of Path of Exile.
Navali, Karui Soothsayer
You will encounter Navali in each town you visit as you explore Wraeclast within the Prophecy leagues. Cross her palm with silver and she or he will tell your future, divining a Prophecy for you to satisfy . These Prophecies will take you to the farthest reaches of the continent as you strive to realize your destiny.
Fulfill your Prophecy
Approximately one monster per area drops a Silver Coin. Navali will exchange one coin for a vision of your future. This Prophecy, along side up to 6 others, is stored in your Prophecy screen.
Some of these Prophecies affect specific locations you visit . The Vaal Invasion substantially alters the Lunaris Temple. Others are fulfilled once you meet various conditions. Sometimes, a Prophecy yields a desirable reward. Othertimes, the Prophecy is that the reward: "Monstrous Treasure" fills the map with Strongboxes instead of monsters.
In true Path of Exile style, you'll pay Navali to show your prophecies into poe items in order that they're tradeable. this enables you to delay your fate or maybe capitalise thereon .
Some Prophecies unfold as multiple parts, forming a Prophecy Chain. Completing one stage of those Prophecies unlocks the power to later acquire subsequent stage. Each of those Prophecy Chains culminates during a valuable reward, or a component which will allow you to face the Pale Council. Many of those rewards are unique items new Prophecy or from past challenge leagues.
The league's ultimate encounter are often reached by completing four separate Prophecy Chains and mixing their results. one among these Chains is shown below.
Fated Unique Items
Many of Path of Exile's unique items tell a story. a number of those stories are unfinished. Certain Prophecies will guide you to wield one among these things as you complete its destiny. The item are going to be permanently imbued with new power and a replacement name.
Challenges and Rewards
In addition to the generous rewards earned by fulfilling Prophecies, you'll earn exclusive microtransactions as you complete challenges.
The Prophecy leagues include a group of 40 new challenges. once you complete 12 challenges, you receive the Prophecy Footprints Effect. At 24, you receive the Prophecy Weapon Effect. once you complete your 36th challenge, you receive Navali's Monkey Pet. These microtransactions are exclusively available within the Prophecy leagues.
From the 19th challenge onwards and for each third challenge then , you receive pieces of a Prophecy column decoration to display in your hideout. The column permanently showcases what percentage of the Prophecy challenges you completed during this league.
The Endgame Labyrinth
The rumours are true. there's a fourth Labyrinth, and it's accessed through end-game maps. High level players will gradually complete difficult map versions of the Trials of Ascendancy to realize access to the Endgame Labyrinth.
This version of the Labyrinth features new puzzles and includes a completely new sort of trap.
The Endgame Labyrinth rewards you with a replacement tier of item Enchantment and two additional Ascendancy points. The new total of eight Ascendancy points open up entirely new build possibilities.
In this update, we're also streamlining the Trials of Ascendancy in order that you simply need to complete them once on each difficulty level per league.
We have added five new skills in Content Update 2.3.0. Spirit Offering grants both offensive and defensive bonuses to a summoner's minion. A Necromancer character can claim those bonuses for themselves.
Ancestral Warchief may be a new melee weapon totem that uses a strong area attack and empowers its owner's attacks. Lacerate may be a melee skill that performs two slashes, sending out a wave of force with each. It deals extra damage where the slashes overlap.
Frostbolt may be a new cold snap that passes through enemies, damaging them when it hits them. Vortex may be a new area spell that explodes during a burst of cold round the caster, creating an icy vortex. If used on a Frostbolt in mid-air, the Frostbolt explodes, letting the caster create vortices across the battlefield.
Content Update 2.3.0 introduces many new Unique Items and Divination Cards designed by Path of Exile's supporters. you'll view a variety of them below.
In addition, we're adding three new sorts of Unique Strongboxes and a replacement end-game map base type: the Plaza Map.
This content update also contains some balance changes. Ascendancy Classes are being reviewed, reworked and rebalanced to make sure they stay competitive with one another across a spread of builds. Sources of chaos damage conversion are being reduced across the board. We are buffing the implicit mods on Wands and Sceptres. additionally , Daggers, Wand and Sceptres are going to be slightly more likely to roll caster or attack prefixes if they have already got related mods.
All players will receive a one-off passive tree reset (including Ascendancy points) in order that they will adjust their characters to those changes.
Behind the Veil
This update doesn't just add new content - it contains some significant technical improvements. We've overhauled how Path of Exile manages its memory and have replaced its audio system .
Game assets are now loaded within the background as you play, making loading screens faster. you'll now load to the login screen in but a second on an SSD disk drive (two seconds on a non-SSD). Path of Exile 2.3.0 also uses far less memory than before, eliminating all out-of-memory crashes (which were most frequent on 32-bit systems).
We've replaced Path of Exile's sound system . This not only improves audio performance but gives our audio engineers powerful tools to form Path of Exile sound better than ever.
