In Path of Exile: Scourge, we've halved the number of regions in the Atlas and made each Atlas Passive Tree slightly larger to streamline the Atlas of Worlds endgame. Today, we've gathered up the Atlas Passive Trees for the 3.16 expansion to help you plan your endgame progress! Please note, you'll still receive the same amount of Atlas Passive skill points as before.

For a full written list of all Atlas Passives, please {LINK REMOVED}click here.

Alongside introducing other forms of {LINK REMOVED}uber endgame content, Path of Exile: Scourge also changes the way players access the Eternal Labyrinth.

Problems: Finding all six Trials of Ascendancy often took a very large number of maps. Assuming players were playing alone, it averaged to around 150 maps to find them all, but could be much more if players were unlucky. By this point, players were often over-levelled for the content and were starting to encounter difficult-enough endgame content where the extra Ascendancy skills were sorely needed. This problem would be further exacerbated by the reduction in Atlas size taking place in the Scourge expansion.

We recently added a means to open random Trials of Ascendancy in the Map Device by con... Read more

Early next year, we will release our 3.17 expansion which includes a full rework to Path of Exile's Atlas of Worlds. In the meantime, we wanted to make some small improvements to the experience of setting up your Atlas. As such, in our October Scourge expansion, we're halving the number of regions to four and number of watchstones to sixteen. The idea is that it should be much faster to complete your Atlas setup in 3.16. Today's news post outlines what to expect if you're playing in Standard and worried about what will happen to your Atlas when Scourge launches.

We are removing the following regions: Tirn's End, Lex Proxima, Lex Ejoris and New Vastir.

Any quest Watchstones that have come from the above regions will be deleted. Note this does not mean where the Watchstones are socketed, but which region they were obtained from originally. The unfortunate part about this is that any sextants that are applied to these quest Watchstones will also be deleted.

The Expedition League ends on PC on Monday October 18th at 2PM PDT, so this is your last week to complete any unfinished challenges. On consoles, the Expedition League will end when the 3.16 expansion goes live for consoles on October 27th PDT.

When Expedition ends, private leagues for 3.16 will become available shortly after so that you can prepare ahead of time for its launch. The exclusive {LINK REMOVED}Expedition Brimmed Hat will also leave the store forever! If you want to show your support for the league, be sure to check it out.

In Path of Exile: Scourge (our October 3.16 expansion), we're making a number of changes to improve how characters mitigate ailments, use flasks, and build the defence of their characters. We're also addressing the extreme power of Auras and Curses in parties, while improving the strength of these mechanics for builds with a smaller investment. Finally we're changing Elemental Overload and Elemental Equilibrium and massively buffing elemental damage over time to be less dependent on them.

We're planning to share our balance changes across three news posts. Part 1 covers Ailment Mitigation and Flask Improvements, Part 2 covers Core Character Defences and Recovery and Part 3 covers Auras, Curses and Elemental Damage over Time. Today, we're talking about Ailment Mitigation and Flask improvements and will share parts 2 & 3 in subsequent days.

On the 14th of October (PDT), we'll be announcing Path of Exile: Scourge. At that time, we’ll introduce a new set of League Supporter Packs, which means the {LINK REMOVED}Ultimatum Supporter Packs will permanently leave the store.

There are two pairs of Ultimatum Supporter Packs available in the store; the Sun Supporter Pack and the Crescent Supporter Pack. Each of the two pairs is designed in its own style with different contents, so you can choose whichever you prefer; or if you can’t decide, you can get both! If you have previously purchased a smaller pack, you have the option to upgrade to the larger one. All of the microtransactions included in the Supporter Packs are exclusive and will not be available in the store again.

We recently took some time to chat with streamer and long time player Kripparrian, to find out some of his favourite Path of Exile memories and what his life is like outside of gaming!

Hi Kripparrian, thanks so much for joining us for this interview! For those who may not be familiar with you yet, can you please introduce yourself? Hey there! I'm Kripp, and I've been playing video games all of my life, starting from when I was 3 years old. I've been fortunate enough to be able to make a living off of it since 2012, and luckily Path of Exile has been part of my gaming routine for most of those years.

We owe you a huge deal of thanks for helping to popularise Path of Exile in its early days. What is your favourite memory of your earliest days playing Path of Exile? My favorite part about PoE is to successfully create a new character and build that has not been done before. In the early days this was a much harder task, especially on Hardcore, as there were far fewer ... Read more
