Path of Exile – Prophecy Removal in 3.17.0

The next challenge league expansion for Path of Exile will be going live in early 2022. And when that happens, the game’s Prophecy system first introduced back in 2016 will be going away. If you’d like to know the specifics, you should check this out:

Prophecy was introduced in 2016 and has been part of core Path of Exile content ever since then. However, over time it has become dated and outpaced by other newer content. In our January expansion, we’re removing Prophecy from Path of Exile. This means you have a limited time to use your Silver Coins and saved Prophecies. Find out more in this news post. It also means we’ll be saying goodbye to Navali and the Pale Council. Don’t worry too much about Navali though, she likely saw it coming.

The following changes are currently planned but are still subject to change:

  • Silver coins, itemised Prophecies, and Pale Council fragments will be deleted from your inventory and stash the next time you log in after the launch of 3.17.0.
  • Unique items previously exclusive to Prophecy chains or the Pale Council fight will be added to the core drop pool.
  • There are a number of Fated Unique items that we feel are no longer exciting enough to stay in the main game. The following Fated Unique items will no longer be obtainable outside of trading with other players in permanent leagues: Corona Solaris, Crystal Vault, Deidbellow, Dreadsurge, Ezomyte Hold, Fox’s Fortune, Greedtrap, Hrimnor’s Dirge, Kaltensoul, Karui Charge, Martyr’s Crown, Mirebough, Ngamahu Tiki, Panquetzaliztli, Realm Ender, Sanguine Gambol, Shavronne’s Gambit, Silverbough, Sunspite, The Effigon, The Gryphon, The Oak, Voidheart and Wall of Brambles.
  • In a few cases, the Fated version of a Unique item felt worth keeping in the game but there was little value in having the Fated and base versions of the Unique item be separate. In these cases, the Fated Unique item will be disabled, but the base Unique item will be modified to be identical or similar to the old Fated version. These are: Winterweave, Thirst for Horrors, Cragfall, Geofri’s Legacy, The Iron Fortress, The Dancing Duo and Timetwist.
  • Atziri’s Reflection will no longer be considered a Fated Unique item. It will be moved to be a rare drop from Uber Atziri. Atziri’s Mirror will no longer drop.
  • Fated Unique Items not mentioned above will have a chance to drop from any endgame map boss. This is a temporary measure — we intend to implement a more interesting way to obtain Fated Unique items alongside some new items in a future expansion.
  • Existing items that grant Prophecy rewards, such as Delirium Orbs or Metamorph Samples, will be updated to grant a different reward type.
  • We’re adding Lilly Roth as a new possible hideout NPC. She will take over hideout divination card turn-ins from Navali, and also give you access to her gem shop.
  • We may bring back specific rewards from other prophecies (such as Monstrous Treasure) in new ways.
  • Divination Cards that grant itemised prophecies will be redesigned in collaboration with the supporters who created them. If you are a supporter who has created such a card, please check your PMs on the website for a message from us.

We wanted to give as much warning as possible so that you have time, if you wish, to use up your Silver Coins, Prophecies and Pale Council fragments before the launch of 3.17.0 in early 2022.
