Path of Exile's Xbox One Patch Adds Features, Achievement Fixes and More

By Kelly Packard, 9 months ago
TrueAchievements gamers have a love-hate relationship with Grinding Gear Games' Path of Exile. They love the game — indicated by the 4.2 star average user rating — but hate unobtainable achievements, of which the game had four. Luckily, GGG released a patch that promises fixes for the achievements, new content, balance changes and more.

Path of Exile

The patch notes, posted on Path of Exile's official forums, are as follows:

New Features:

  • Anomalies in The Shaper's Realm will now only spawn when inside The Shaper's arena.
  • While in Edit-mode in a hideout, the Decorations panel is now opened by default. Otherwise, the inventory remains the default panel.
  • Added the option to target corpses with Raise Zombie, Raise Spectre, Detonate Dead and all Offering skills if you hold down the left trigger.
  • Added error message for Tasuni's divination card trade UI.
  • Adjusted the cursor size to properly fit all types of stash tabs.
  • Challenge completion information is now displayed as a notification.

  • Fixed a bug with the Divination stash which adjusted the card size.
  • Fixed various issues where the following achievements were not always able to be completed: Locomancer, Deicide, Decimation, Deadly Sins, Omnipotent, Warlord, Augmentation, Apprentice Cartographer, Journeyman Cartographer, Master Cartographer and Atlas of Worlds.

  • Fixed a bug where the incorrect context controls could be shown on certain quest items.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented background panels and functions from closing when opening the menu.
  • Fixed a bug when unstacking currency from your stash which could cause the entire stack to be moved to your inventory.
  • Fixed a bug where the Altar of Ascendancy controls could be active when not using the Altar.
  • Fixed a bug where Harbinger Obelisks could hinder players who were wearing the Allelopathy unique gloves.
  • Fixed a bug where Grandmasters would only receive bonuses to their attack skills from Frenzy charges.
