POE 3.7.0 - Item Balance Update Guide

POE 3.7.0 will be released soon, and the Path of Exile official website has released the first wave of POE 3.7 updates. Let's take a look at item balance updated guide in POE 3.7.

POE 3.7 Item Update


1. POE 3.7.0 - Item Balance Guide


- Many low-level melee weapon base types have had their base attack speed raised and their damage lowered to compensate.
- The following staves can no longer roll spell-based mods such as added damage for spells or increased spell damage. Their base attack speeds have been slightly increased, and their damage decreased to compensate. These changes affect all existing versions of these base types, though they will not affect the mods those items currently have. Also, some level requirements have changed I guess? Anyway, here you go Iron Staff, Coiled Staff, Vile Staff, Military Staff, Serpentine Staff, Foul Staff, Ezomyte Staff, Maelström Staff, and Judgement Staff.
- The above staves will be swapped to a new "War Staff" weapon class in the near future to help differentiate them.
- The following daggers can no longer roll spell-based mods such as added damage for spells or increased spell damage. Their base attack speeds have been slightly increased, and their damage decreased to compensate. This affects all existing versions of these base types: Skinning Knife, Sai, Poignard, Gutting Knife, Trisula, Ambusher, Flying Knife, Prong Dagger, Stiletto.
- The following daggers will be swapped to a new "Rune Dagger" weapon class in the near future, to differentiate them from the attack-only daggers above. They will continue to be able to roll both attack and caster modifiers: Glass Shank, Boot Knife, Copper Kris, Skean, Imp Dagger, Butcher Knife, Boot Blade, Golden Kris, Royal Skean, Fiend Dagger, Slaughter Knife, Ezomyte Dagger, Platinum Kris, Imperial Skean and Demon Dagger.
- Orb of Horizons can now drop from monsters and other currency sources (such as Emperor's Luck).
- Adjusted the drop rate of certain items for which there were many... hunters...
- The Dense Fossil can no longer craft increased Armour, Evasion or Energy Shield suffix modifiers and now has new mods it can craft on each slot.
- The Dense Fossil modifier "15% increased Energy Shield from Body Armour" was incorrectly acting multiplicatively with other sources of increased Energy Shield. This has been fixed and affects all existing items with this modifier. To partially (but intentionally not entirely) compensate for this change, it now grants 20-30% increased Energy Shield from Body Armour. Existing items with this modifier can be updated to the new values with a Divine Orb.
- The Divine Vessel is now a 1x1 item, rather than 1x2.
- Perandus scarabs can now cause Cadiro Perandus to appear. Rusted scarabs have a 33% chance for a Cadiro appearance, Polished has a 66% chance, and Gilded guarantee that he appears.
- The values on Life, Mana and Energy Shield modifiers on Abyssal Jewels have been reduced, and the top tiers made rarer relative to lower tiers. The top roll for these modifiers is now 40 (from 50). Divining existing jewels will update them to these new values, so don't do that unless you're hoping to create one of those 'viral videos' that are all the rage these days.
- Added damage of all types on Abyssal Jewels has also been lowered, by about 30% at the top end, scaling down to lower tiers. Top tiers of these have also become rarer. This is true for all top-tier added damage modifiers on Abyssal Jewels, including caster and summoner ones.
- The top two tiers of added elemental damage for melee weapons have had their damage increased by about 10% for tier 2 and 40% for tier 1.
- All added damage modifiers on two-handed weapons are now 160% of the values of their one-handed counterparts. This takes the new higher values at the top end into account -- even they are 160% of their one-hand versions.
- Added new top-tier modifiers for Added Fire Damage, Added Cold Damage and Added Lightning Damage. These are available on items with a level of 82 or greater.
- The highest tier added elemental damage modifiers for weapons are now rarer. It will be approximately as difficult to get 3 tier-1 elemental damage rolls as the three-tier-1 physical damage rolls.
- Weapon-specific increased physical damage modifiers on Jewels now apply to all damage types, not just physical. This affects all existing jewels with these modifiers. The values have not changed.
- Reduced the amount of Energy Shield granted by Synthesised Implicit on Body Armours, Shields, Helmets, Gloves and Boots. This won't affect you unless you decide to use a Blessed Orb, in which case it definitely will affect you.
- The hybrid increased physical damage and accuracy modifiers now grant more accuracy. Existing items with these modifiers can be updated with a Divine Orb.
- The pure accuracy modifiers now grant more accuracy than previously, and there are fewer tiers. Existing items with these modifiers can be updated with a Divine Orb.
- The Immortal Call enchantment which previously granted a chance to not consume endurance charges now grants increased Immortal Call duration per endurance charge consumed. This affects items that had the previous enchantment.
