The new search allows players to find the exact item they need. We urge players to list any and all items they think might be useful to another player. This should lead to more search results and more trades for the seller.

This was an unintended consequence of fixing an important bug. To remedy this, I have brought back the ability for those items to provide a higher level aura (in a different way but same result). Note: This will not apply to existing items. It will be necessary to make those runewords again.
- Mind Barrier seems to cause some players to crash in games with multiple people. I believe it is related to the stuns so I have set all stun chance to 0%. Please let me know if the crashes are gone or continue to help me figure out which proc is causing it. From there I will be able to provide a better and more permanent solution afterwards.
- Fixed an aura issue which caused mercenaries to not always activate their auras.

- Molten Boulder’s flame animation is both smaller and shorter visually. In the original game, the fire trail left by Molten Boulder only dealt damage near the boulder which means the long fire trail left behind, which lasts multiple seconds, did not actually deal damage. So the new visual effects now represent exactly the hitbox of the boulder fire trail. The new flame is also shorter in height. Both of these changes help reduce visual clutter and have no gameplay impact.
- Molten Boulder no longer has a cooldown.
- Molten Boulder damages have been re-balanced and synergies changed significantly with the goal of reducing its power early due to the cooldown removal but improving its scaling into the end-game.
- Bone and Flesh Offering starting duration increased from 4 to 5 seconds.
- Bone and Flesh Offering radius gained per level has been doubled.

- Blessed Hammer projectile speed has been increased. It will circle around the player quicker which should result in a more consistent and responsive AoE with less delay when targeting monsters behind the player. The hammers also appear left of the character now to properly represent the damage path. In the original game the hammer’s first 6 frames are invisible so it only starts appearing when in front of the character but was still dealing damage to the left. Now the animation will be synced with the damage path it always had.
- Concentration will now show the hidden bonus it gives to Blessed Hammer.
- Sanctuary magic damage synergy from Cleansing increased from 15% to 18%.

So you will need to get new boots after the patch if you wish to start gaining the kick damage).
- Points into Strength no longer increases kick damage.
- The Redeemer’s “Damage +(60-120)” stat has been changed to “Adds 80-120 Damage” this is to fix bugs related to “Damage +X” mods not scaling like regular damage does on attack skills and also giving extra physical damage to skills that shouldn’t be benefiting like Smite.

- Fixed a tooltip error that showed power strike as having 110% weapon damage when it always had 100.
- Fixed some tooltip errors with Dragon Talon.

Patch #8: Pyrite
Updated July 27, 2016
New Mapping/Dungeoneering System
- We are introducing a new dungeoneering system that will significantly improve the current one we have in place. The current dungeons will be reverted back to normal. So what is the new system?
- Players will find Relics which are tiered. When a player finds a relic, he can bring it to an Altar and use it. This will create a portal to a high level dungeon. These dungeons are exclusive to the end-game. They are inaccessible until Hell and require level 80 to open. These dungeons offer an optional alternative end-game aimed for high level characters (90+) where they can farm difficult content for experience and loot. These areas become harder and harder as you climb the Tiers.
- Each map has a boss and currently you are required to kill the map boss in order to gain access to higher tiers. Dungeons get increasingly difficult as you enter higher tiers but they will provide excellent experience points. These dungeons are safest when done in a group. It is not recommended to enter solo unless your character has end-game gear. Please be advised that the map bosses can be pretty scary. Tread carefully.
- There is currently 3 tiers out of the planned 5. The other tiers will be patched in later due to time constraints. Please make sure to send in feedback on the dungeoneering system so that it can be further improved in the upcoming patches.
- Monsters can no longer spawn with the Mana Burn mod.
- Moved “Flamespike the Crawler” further away from the Inner Cloister waypoint.
- Increased the drop rate of Tier 1 maps.
- Arrows and Bolts now spawn with a wide variety of implicit mods.
- Healing potions have been renamed to Life potions to shorten their name label, resulting in slightly less item clutter on screen.
- The “Damage Taken Goes to Mana” mod will now read “Damage Taken Gained as Mana when Hit” to avoid confusion.
- The mods “Damage Reduced by” and “Magic Damage Reduced by” will now read “Physical Damage Taken Reduced by” and “Magic Damage Taken Reduced by” to avoid confusion.
- Increased the drop rate of Orb of Corruptions.
- Diamonds socketed into Weapons will now give “Adds x-y Damage” instead of “% Damage vs Undead”.
- Skulls socketed into Shields will now give “Physical/Magic Damage taken Reduced by X” instead of “Attacker takes damage of X”.
- The ‘Memory’ runeword had the mod “Magic damage reduced by 7” replaced by “Lightning Surge deals 25% extra damage as Physical”. Before.jpg / After.jpg
- The 'Stone' runeword has been reworked. Before.jpg / After.jpg
- The unique Corpsemourn had been reworked. Before.jpg / After.jpg

Patch #4: Onyx
Updated Oct 21, 2015
- This patch contains some changes to the end-game in an effort to make more areas worth exploring. It is important to offer more replayability via build diversity, but another way to achieve that is to give players more reasons to visit underused side areas. Before this rework, very few side areas were worth visiting, but a notable exception is ‘The Pit Level 2’. This zone is famous for having an equivalent monster level as the Throne of Destruction which means players can get the same item drops but with lower risk since that zone contains weaker monsters. The advantage of Throne of Destruction on the other hand is that it offers both the best drops and the most experience in the game. Although there are a few other notable examples like Countess farming, most other zones in the game are virtually useless to farm. The rework of the end-game plans to address this in a way that should be familiar for Path of Exile players; a mapping/dungeoneering system. We’ve changed some side areas to be completely new dungeons that offer higher monster level for more experience gain, however the content’s difficulty has also increased.
- The Hole Level 1 now has a monster level of 87.
- The Hole Level 2 now has a monster level of 88.
- Stony Tomb Level 1 now has a monster level of 87.
- Stony Tomb Level 2 now has a monster level of 88.
- Halls of Pain now has a monster level of 87.
- Halls of Vaught now has a monster level of 88.
All dungeons have had their area size increased.Due to an unforeseen bug, some areas will remain their normal size until we patch a fix some time after the ladder reset.
- Each dungeon contains a varied list of monsters that can spawn in them, in a multitude of combinations.
- The item drops within dungeons are the same as Worldstone Chamber.
- This is the first part of the end-game rework. Don’t forget to give us feedback on these new dungeons. We want to make sure that this system is working perfectly before we can implement the remaining dungeoneering/mapping system.
- When an Act 5 monster rolls ‘Junk’ (consisting of keys, throwing potions, TPs, IDs and small gold stacks) to drop, it will instead drop nothing about half the time. This change does not affect other drops. Players should now notice less item clutter in the Throne of Destruction.
- The mod ‘Piercing Attacks’ now specifies the pierce chance percentage in the tooltip.
- The unique item ‘Todesfaelle Flamme’ has been reworked. [Before.jpg](http://home.att.ne.jp/star/numa/Diablo2/Unique/TodesfaelleFlamme.jpg) / [After.jpg](https://i.gyazo.com/17308ff7a66f56d30259120d2fdb83a2.png)
