Path of Exile’s latest update, Heist, released over the weekend. And already, Grinding Gear Games are ready for patch notes featuring some improvements.

There are several Heist-specific improvements included in patch 3.12.1. For example, players will no longer block each other in the Rogue Harbor, which is nice. Reward chests in Unique Contracts won’t become locked during lockdown, either. Several bug fixes were also included for Heist including:

  • Fixed a bug where Replica Quill Rain's "Socketed Gems are Supported by Level 1 Arrow Nova" did not work.
  • Fixed a bug where an Agility Laser hazard could generate with the disabling mechanism in an unreachable location.
  • Fixed a bug in Grand Heists where multiple Rogues with the same Job could attempt to do a single job, resulting in multiple job progress bars being visible.
  • Fixed a bug where various Heist Unique Items did not have a slot in the Unique Collection Tab.

The patch also brings improvements to skills, primarily revolving around bug fixing. A crash fix was also implemented which would occur after leaving the Heist area. You can check out the full patch notes here. The patch itself will release sometime this week.
