Kammell's Community Racing Event on June 29th - Win a Ticket to ExileCon!

We're excited to announce another race event, arranged by community member, Kammell! We're offering our support by providing an ExileCon prize package for the Rank 1 winner who will be flown to New Zealand to attend ExileCon and compete in the live ExileCon race finale!

The event will have players competing to reach level 80 in SSFHC Legion. There will be no additional mods aside from the Legion itself. The event is open for everyone (however, there is a private league cap of 2,000 players), so if you'd like to join, you can request an invitation here.

In addition to a cash prize pool, funded by Kammell himself, the first winner will get an Exilecon prize package which includes a VIP Exilecon Ticket, an entry into the grand racing finals at ExileCon, return flights to New Zealand and accommodation around the event.

The event will begin at 12pm Saturday 29th June (PDT). You can find a countdown here. Casting will be done by ZiggyD, Octavian and Brittleknee!

For more information about the event, check out Kammell's official post.

Best of luck to our racers! If you're unable to participate in this event, don't worry, we have two more ExileCon qualification events planned in the upcoming weeks, so keep an eye on our announcements! In the meantime, be sure to watch the action next Saturday on Twitch!

What We're Working On - Legion Week 2

We're now in the second week of Legion and we're still really pleased to see how much people are enjoying the new content. We want to keep you in the loop about what we're working on and what to expect this week so we've prepared a news post that addresses some community concerns and outlines our update coming later this week.

This Week's Patch
We currently have a patch scheduled for Thursday that should include our next batch of improvements and bug fixes. These are still subject to change as we continue development and testing but below are some of the high priority issues we expect to address in this update:
  • Legion Monsters cannot be frozen and corpses cannot be destroyed once slain.
  • Players not getting Fortify if they Shield Charge with a wand.
  • Bladestorm's initial hit doesn't actually hit.
  • Adding Orb of Horizons to the Currency Stash Tab.
  • More client crash fixes.
  • Rebalancing audio for some skills that are currently too loud.
  • Item filter alerts are too quiet.
NOTE: If you believe you're experiencing a bug, please report it in the Bug Reports forum with as much relevant detail as possible. The QA team checks all reports that are made in this forum but are not able to reply to every thread. Please also check the Known Issues thread before posting to see if an issue is already known.

Other Issues
The following issues will ideally go into this week's patch but may end up in a later patch instead.
  • Increasing visibility of the Legion reward symbols.
  • Improving signalling of Legion encounters and Generals.
  • Flame Dash is double casting when only used a single time.
  • Performance problems associated with water.
  • More client crash fixes.
If you don't see an issue that pertains to you listed in this post, don't fret. This post only includes the highlight/most frequently talked about issues. If you want to make sure your issue is seen, please make a bug report using the method described above.

pathofexile.com/trade
Our official trade website has been slow and occasionally unresponsive since Legion's launch. This is partly due to an unusually high number of Path of Exile players on the servers. We've added more servers to deal with this part of the issue.

There was also a bottleneck in the website's traffic which when uncovered, also revealed another issue with an essential service related to the website. We've band-aid fixed these for now and are working on better solutions to enable the site to handle this kind of workload in future. We will keep you updated as these improvements come in.

Server Issues
We're investigating reports of server and connectivity issues. We are working to resolve two confirmed issues - degraded server performance affecting the Japan and Singapore gateways and another widespread issue that is causing unexpected disconnections during peak time (approximately 11pm-4am NZST). We're working to resolve both of these urgently. There are several other reports we are investigating, including connectivity issues between users and several of the EU gateways.

It is somewhat tricky to definitively say what is and isn't a server issue as many things can seem like server issues when their root causes are elsewhere. We are investigating all reports and will work as quickly as possible to resolve issues that we can confirm and are within our control. We are also continuing to work on fixing any remaining instance and client crashes.

If you believe you're experiencing server issues, please share your experiences here with a WinMTR report attached so that we can assess what's happening.

On-kill Effects and Legion
We're aware that many players are feeling frustrated that some on-kill mechanics don't currently interact nicely with Legion, including the explosions from Gratuitous Violence on the Gladiator's Ascendancy Skill Tree, in addition to a few other Ascendancy skills. We are beginning the process of enabling ones that can be enabled and will make a list of those that can't be enabled due to technical limitations. This is quite a complex development process so we don't have any specifics to report just yet but will keep you updated as the work continues on these.

Thank you very much for all of your feedback and support in making Path of Exile the best it can be. We really appreciate it!

“PC Game of the Year 2013”
9 – Gamespot

“Path of Exile was a great game in 2013, but a slew of free expansions have only made it better. It’s one of the best ARPGs out there, and absolutely the best value.”

Created by hardcore gamers, Path of Exile is an online Action RPG set in a dark fantasy world. With a focus on visceral action combat, powerful items and deep character customization, Path of Exile is completely free and will never be pay-to-win.

As you explore deeper into Wraeclast, the pool of available variations increases to challenge you in new ways. All of the Missions and their variations can occur anywhere in the game, including within end-game Maps.

Once you've earned a Master's trust, you may be taken to a Hideout, where you can create your own personalised town. Masters residing in your Hideout offer you daily Missions and train you in advanced crafting options.
