Path of Exile: Siege of the Atlas has launched, met a player spike and now Grinding Gear Games are smoothing the experience by introducing improvements and fixes.

Path of Exile update 3.17.1 will introduce fixes and quality of life updates for both the endgame content and the Archnemesis system. One of the changes that is bound to yield some discussion is that completing Unique Maps will not count towards the highest-completed Map tier for Atlas and Kirac missions.

Speaking of Kirac, you will be able to sell items there when the update hits, which is definitely going to be a major removal of headache. Additionally, there is going to be a stash tab search functionality for Searing Exarch and Eater of Worlds items.

On the side of fixing things, Death and Rebirth and Safe Passage things can now finally be turned in, even if you already progressed to the Karui Shores.

The same zone saw a fix where public mapping parties were not visible. This fix extends to the issues with the Hideout and the Noticeboeard's Public Parties tab and even the Social menu.

If you ran into a certain enemy that would cause your lifesteal not to work but you had no idea why, it's because the Vampiric Archnemesis modifier was active but the description didn't note the monster can't be leeched from. The patch will change the tooltip to reflect this state.

While we only mentioned a few of the highlights, the actual patch preview is more thorough, if you are looking to get into a proper wall of text.
