Path of Exile: Necropolis Patch 3.24.2 Preview:

Updates and Improvements

  • Added 7 new Scarabs: Abyss Scarab of Profound Depth, Blight Scarab of Invigoration, Breach Scarab of Resonant Cascade, Essence Scarab of Adaptation, Torment Scarab of Possession, Scarab of Radiant Storms, and Scarab of Wisps.
  • The Legion Scarab of Eternal Conflict now has “Legion Monsters in Area gain increased Difficulty and Reward for each time they are broken out”.
  • Tempests and Affliction Wisps are now considered as Extra Content, and will no longer be present in Map Areas with the Back to Basics Atlas Keystone Passive allocated.
  • Added 300 more foiled Tier 17 Valdo’s Map options that the Valdo’s Puzzle Box can yield.
  • Elder Guardians can no longer be targeted by Delirium Demons, as they could fail to transition phases if they were under the effects of Delirium when the Delirium encounter ended.
  • Updated the description of the Abyssal Assailants Challenge to clarify the Stygian Spires defeated must be those at the end of Abysses, defeating those spawned through the Allflame Ember of Abyss does not grant credit towards this Challenge.

  • Fixed a bug where the Triggered Detonate Mines Skill granted by the “Detonate Mines is Triggered while you are moving” Passive Skill Mastery would override skill bindings. This Triggered version can no longer be bound to the skill bar.
