Path Of Exile Date: May/31/21 11:33:19 Views: 1507

After the release of Path of Exile 3.14 Ultimatum League, this game has entered a large number of new players. For these players, this game is completely unfamiliar, and they may have many questions about the mechanics of this game. Here we have collected some questions and attached the answers.


How does Petrified Blood interact with Ichimonji's "10% increased Effect of Buffs on you"?


The numerical magnitudes of the buff are increased by 10%. Assuming a level 20 gem with no quality, this results in a buff that causes 44% of life loss below half to be prevented, 89% of that prevented loss to be lost over 4 seconds, as well as adding base life cost to skills equal to 44% of base mana cost while not on low life.


Does Shock increase Bleeding damage?


Shock increases all damage taken by the shocking object. This includes any type of damage gradually it is taking, such as from bleeding.


Does faster action speed affect brand frequency?


Action speed modifies the speed at which your character performs actions. So it will let you obtain the brand cast quicker, but it does not modify activation frequency. Because it is independent of that animation of your character playing.


How does The Retch interact with instant leech now that leech is capped?


The only cap relevant to The Retch is Maximum recovery per Life Leech. This establishes an upper bound on how much life recovery a single instance of leech can have - regardless of whether it is instant or not. The Retch causes damage equal to a percent of the life leeched by each leech instance, so this cap also limits the amount of damage The Retch can do for each life leech instance.


Life Leech applies to enemies as Chaos Damage


It takes 200% of the actual life gained from the leech and deals it as chaos damage to the enemy that was the target of the leeching. For that reason, by default, no damage is dealt if the gamer remains in full health while leeching. This damage is not affected by damage modifiers as it is considered as reflected damage.


Can the damage be taken recouped stack?


Yes, each source of Recouping Life, mana, or energy shield is completely independent.



Recovery of energy shield, life, and mana through recoup is scaled by increases and reductions to energy shield, life, and mana recovery rate, respectively.


And if an enemy spell is critical, will it crit with each hit of the same cast, or will each hit roll critical separately?


This depends on the specific spell, but most spells will have a critical strike every time they are cast, but the critical strike rate separately against each target.


Do active flask effects update when stats affecting them change?


Yes. Alchemist's Genius grants to increase the effect of the flasks on you. When the modifier changes, the Modifiers to the effect are always dynamically updated.


How do Glancing Blows interact with the Ritual boots which grant increased Block but let 20% damage?


By default, you get% damage from blocked attacks, and Glancing Blows makes you take 65% of damage. The Implicit modifier on Base metal Treads, Darksteel Treads, or Brimstone Treads makes you take 20% of the damage of blocked hits. If you have both, you'll take 85% of the damage of blocked hits.
