    Patch tonight, covering these issues:
    The Pulsating Grotto, Restless Rubble and Haunted Remains Delve encounters cannot be completed.
    Dying in a map Labyrinth Trial resurrecting you in hideout instead of the map.
    Incorrect default location when entering Hideout.
    Summoned Raging Spirits not prioritising targets correctly.
    Bodyswap not interacting correctly with Zombies when using Aukuna's Will.
    They're aware of stability and performance issues with Blight, no time given for fixes

    Thank god for that. I occasionally had spirits go tearing off in the other direction to hit something a screen away instead of the pack directly in front of me. Hopefully this fixes that

    secretly op: burning arrow crit ignite builds

    thank u ggg for this perfect agony buf

    Please explain I’ve been wanting to do this for so many leagues

    i mean its pretty much

    stack burning ailment multi on tree and the new burning multi on crit nodes between shadow and witch

    get crit multi and perfect agony so half of it turns into ailment multi

    get dyadian dawn for more burn dps, threshold for double ignites and a malevolence faster ailment watchers probably with whatever other juice you want. true swaglords go marylenes fallacy of course

    i doing it as elementalist because im cool so you get golems for mass damage, stats, accuracy, free crit etc, 30% inc damage taken from shocks and 20% more ignite plus if you can be bothered the option of getting budget stormfire/hrimburn by waiting for your buff

    an easy cheap setup would be xophs nurture + signal fire, run malevolence, rank 1 precision, herald of ash and purity / get a few aura nodes and drop in anger

    then run hyrris ire chest, random abyssals with cold/fire/phys on

    combustion + wave of conviction for 45 shred, curse on hit flam from whatever source you want (ring, herald, whatever), if you want extreme swag just go malachais artifice with ele hit socketed and a single fire knockout combat focus and use ele hit once on bosses for free 40% extra shred, if not extreme swag just put herald of thunder in it

    then just do whatever you want. lots of options lots of ways to scale lots of dippy shit, tonnes of obviously good notables to grab to mix up your pathing (eg dont bother pathing to bow crit nodes and just grab lethality as an anointment, etc). could go coralitos for maximum pathing laziness and just snort good nodes. but ya millions of shaper dps is very achievable on shit cheap gear, i was at over a million before doing merciless lab at level 70 before i stopped.

    Day 4: Second Wasp Nest acquired. 5 Link Dendrobate purchased, along with Coralito's. Need to find a Starkonja's and then decide if I want to Witchfire Brew or not. I'd like to be able to fit HoA back in considering how much damage it deals and Witchfire Brew would let me do that.

    Damage rotation is now: attack for one-two packs, max out Green RF, turn on Green RF, whirling through a quarter of the map until it runs out, attack for one-two packs, repeat.

    Survivability is okay, but being evasion dodge means I play pingpong flask piano more often. Tier 7 maps are pretty simple so yellows seem fine.

    We'll see how long this blog lasts

    Looks like skitterbots are going to start benefiting from Infernal Legion.

    Is there any nodes or items that buff Infernal Legion damage? It seems like increased fire damage does nothing, minion damage does nothing, at the very least the tool tip doesn't change. Without in game combat text I don't know how to figure out what does and doesn't affect it. With no means of buffing it, the damage doesn't seem like it would be that useful long term. Anyone have any higher level anecdotes with using Infernal Legion?

    It's tagged AoE, so maybe AoE damage buffs are the way to go?

    Path of Building seems to think that minion damage nodes buff Infernal Legion damage, as well as any support gems like Burning Damage attached to it. Not sure why the skills tooltip on your action bar in game doesn't reflect any difference though. Might need to test that further.

    I am torn on going all the way to PA or holding out for a Coralito's. I think my multiplier has to be higher for PA to pay off.

    Did my first blighted map and my potato computer actually handled it. It looked 8bit for a second or two, but still.

    It does really make me want to see what Essence Drain does to those maps though. Someone with a supercomputer should make a video.

    Remember, you could always grab it through oils as well. Might be a cheaper method until you can afford Coralito's.

    Found one use for Infernal Legion Skitterbots, they set everything near them on fire so you can guarantee the bonus damage to Flame Surge. So now my character has transitioned to Flame Surge Trap Mines, because mines throw faster than traps, so even with the activation delay it still seems like it will put traps out faster, plus the chance for double damage from High Impact Mines. We shall see how long this works but it amuses me currently.

    So I just realized why I hate mines on Xbox which I realized in the past. They are pretty awesome but the play style annoys. Word for any potential console players (based on a couple of hours in the wee hours this morning): league mechanic not a problem. Works great and is fun. Now I just need to think of a new build since the highly effective Icicle Mines are a recipe for carpal tunnel.

    I think it's mostly that he doesn't want to sell them, but wants to show off that he has them.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    Heh, it looks like the server Will Not Allow two necromancers to group up. I was playing with Kendrik running SRS/zombies and myself running skeletons/zombies, with a 2080 Ti and 2070 Super between the two of us, and we were often getting 1-2 FPS grouped up due to server shenanigans. Toss in a blight map or Vaal Skeletons and it just grinds to a complete stop.

    It's interesting, but people are going to hate it. Imagine spending money to combine a bunch of mtx, only to get one of them back as a result.

    From GGG's perspective, it makes sense. Duplicates are the reason why mystery boxes are priced so low to begin with. Players getting something out of their old duplicates could mean less money spent on new mtx, so they need to make money on this somehow. Still seems a bit predatory with how complicated the salvage box is though.


    Did it seem like they increased monster density in certain parts of the story to anyone else? Was it a patch note I just missed?

    Yeah I think I'm in the "thanks, I hate it" camp. I bought one box, threw most of my dupes into it, and got a combined rare item out of it.

    I have perhaps two combined rare items. And I got a dupe of one of them. $3 for an IRL version of the 5:1 unique prophecy, lol.

    If this is going to be a thing at all, you should absolutely not be able to get duplicates out of the salvage box of shit you already have.

    Edit: because I'm a sucker, I bought a second salvage box, threw that dupe into it, and my other two dupes, and got Blood Guard Wings. Which, like, ok; the end result here is I gave GGG $6 to turn all my duplicate crap into a new, cool pair of wings. That is great! Except it could have been shit.

    I'm kind of souring on their loot boxes now that this is the delivered duplicate resolution process. They were talking a while ago about letting us scrap dupes for a new currency that would only be usable on a different line of MTX or something. That'd piss people off too, but at least it'd be a little more controllable than this sillyness.

    Just raise the price of the mystery box and make it not give you any dupes. Just make it a thing like the Dota 2 or Apex Legends boxes, buying enough boxes gets you everything in the set, just in a random order.

    Man, I feel bad my character name includes fire traps, because the new mines are just so much damn better. Trying out Windz Icicile/Pryoclast mines build and I'm just clearing so much faster and easier, plus bosses just melt.
