After a few hotfixes, the first significant patch for Path of Exile’s latest expansion, Echoes of the Atlas, arrives this week. And the patch notes are available now.

This patch 3.13.1 brings several improvements to Ritual, Echoes of the Atlas, texture streaming, along with a couple of crash fixes pertaining to a common client crash and two instance crashes. The texture streaming improvements work to reduce CPU usage to improve performance on less powerful PCs. Additionally, if you’re using the Vulkan client with less than 300 MB of VRAM, the High texture quality option has been re-enabled.

Echoes of the Atlas-specific fixes include the following:

  • Improved performance during The Maven boss encounter.
  • Fixed a bug where Maven's Beacon could be obtained earlier than intended when playing in a party.
  • Maven's Invitations are now a guaranteed drop upon capturing the 10th boss in an Atlas region for the first time.
  • Fixed a bug where the Silo Map boss could become invulnerable while the player is being witnessed by The Maven.
  • Fixed a bug where The Maven's Quick Guard skill was not working as intended in areas which were level 84 or higher.
  • Fixed a bug where The Maven would sometimes fail to use her skills correctly when witnessing a map boss encounter.
