Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 3.1.3 released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

  • We have made a new effect for Burning Ground which doesn't have the performance issues that the previous one did. While it has a few visual bugs still, we are releasing it for feedback and to get the improvement onto the realm as soon as possible. We plan to update the other ground effects in a similar way in the future.
  • Liches are now 125% more likely to appear in Maps. There is (and has been) a bug where Maps that contain The Elder, Elder Guardians, Labyrinth Trials or master missions that have a subarea are not able to contain Abyssal Depths. We are unlikely to be able to resolve this issue before the end of 3.1.0. The increase in this patch will counteract the effect of this bug in the meantime.
  • Fixed a client crash that occurred when typing various symbols into the search box in the Map Stash Tab.
  • Fixed a client crash that occurred when right clicking on a Map Stash Tab if that tab was not already loaded.
  • Fixed a bug causing the effects for a skill in the High Templar Avarius encounter to not be displayed.
  • Fixed a bug where some Rogue Exiles were not counting towards the "Kill Rogue Exiles" challenge.
