Hey Path of Exile enthusiasts! PoE 3.23 update is like a witch's brew of surprises - a bit of this, a touch of that, and a whole lot of magical mayhem.

PoE 3.23 Affliction New & Changed: New Features, Improvements and Surprises

 

Transfigured Gems

  • Out with the Old: Say goodbye to enchantments, alternate quality gems, and threshold jewels. It's time for a change!
  • In with the New: Welcome the Transfigured Gems system, spicing things up with alternate effects. This league will see 1-2 transformations, but don't expect any for Auras, Heralds, and the like. And nope, Vaal versions aren't affected.
  • Sample the Magic: Frost Bomb now lacks CDR and exposure but packs less punch. Detonate Dead can now only target killed corpses, but it hits harder. And there's more – Zombies falling from the sky, Blight casting Contagion, and Tornado Shot with an extra secondary projectile!

 

The Eternal Labyrinth's New Look

  • Gem Crafting Galore: The Eternal Labyrinth now offers random gem crafting options instead of enchantments. Think of it as a gem alchemist's paradise.
  • Crafting Options: Transform gems into Transfigured versions, sacrifice them for treasure keys or player EXP, and even transform gems into exceptional ones. The Uber Lab is even more generous, offering two crafts and fancier options.

 

Heist Rework

  • Alternate Quality Gems: These are yesterday's news. We're moving on to bigger and better things.
  • Experimented Jewellery Power-Up: Cogwork/Geodesic Rings and Simplex Amulets are getting major buffs. Plus, there are five new Replica Uniques to play with.

Convenience is Key: Split item stacks during trades, and easily see your character slot count at the character selection screen.

 

Passive Tree & Endgame Atlas Tweaks

  • Passive Tree Improvements: It's like giving your character's brain a workout. Expect new paths and choices.
  • Endgame Atlas: Always evolving, always challenging. Keep an eye out for new developments.

 

Metamorph Out, Ultimatum In

  • The Big Swap: Metamorph is taking a backseat, making way for Ultimatum with revamped rewards and mods. Expect ten thrilling rounds and a chance to face the Trialmaster.
  • Inscribed Ultimatums Are Back: They're like your favorite TV show returning for another season.
  • Catalysts and More: Now offered as Ultimatum rewards, with Metamorph uniques becoming core drop uniques. Plus, your Metamorph tab has evolved into an Ultimatum tab, ready to hold all those Inscribed Ultimatums.
  • Gruelling Gauntlet Keystone: This Ultimatum keystone is not for the faint-hearted – tougher challenges, no modifier choices, but oh, the rewards!
  • Tainted Catalyst: This wild card applies a random Catalyst effect at a random quality percentage.
