Path of Exile - Patch 3.1.2 on Friday

Path of Exile

The new patch for Path of Exile mainly brings bug fixes, but also a practical new UI function, new helmet enchants and effects.

After the patch you can use the Alt key to display the “Extended Modifier Descriptions”. All modifiers are divided into prefixes and suffixes, and the minimum and maximum values are shown.

Changes in the Path of Exile Abyss / abyss League:

The rare Lich Bosses act a little more aggressively and now attack you more actively. So be careful, especially for hardcore characters.

Abysses can reappear in the zones “Die Vpferspitze” and “The fascinating abyss”.

You can find the complete German patch notes for Path of Exile Update 3.1.2 below:

Path of Exile Patch 3.1.2

New hits:

  • A new UI option is available: "Extended Modifier Descriptions". If you hold down the [Alt] key, additional information is displayed for an item of equipment. The modifiers of the item are divided into prefixes and suffixes, their possible value ranges are specified and the level of the respective value is determined. Please note that the displayed level includes all possible basic types. For example, if level 5 corresponds to the highest level of the modifier that can appear on a ring, it will also be listed on this ring as level 5 and not level 1. We are already working on improving this aspect in the future.
  • New helmet enchants for 'Reincarnation' and 'Despair' have been added. These can be obtained through the divine well in the merciless or eternal labyrinth.
  • An explosion effect with lightning has been added to the explosion caused by Inpulsa's broken heart.

Balance adjustment: atlas and maps
