Grinding Gear Games’ Path of Exile will be receiving its next big content update on March 8th, kicking off the Synthesis League. It recently revealed patch notes for update 3.6.0 and explained how Synthesis League works, the new Skill Gems and Unique Items, and many changes that are being made to existing spells. Check out the full patch notes here.
There’s quite a lot to get through, but some of the major points include changes to Life Leech, a new Energy Shield Leech function with new passive skill tree nodes for the same, and much more. Spells like Armageddon Brand and Storm Brand have been tweaked to be slightly less potent. Meanwhile, skills like Flame Totem and Storm Burst have been reworked completely.
If that weren’t enough, the Betrayal League content is being rolled into the Standard League. The Atlas of Worlds is also being shuffled, and changes have been made to Enhancements to allow them to have their own slot on items instead of taking up the Implicit mod slot. Synthesis League will be going live for PC (and most likely Xbox One) on Friday. The PS4 version of Path of Exile hasn’t been dated, but should arrive in mid-March.
