Path of Exile’s developers are working at improving Heist rewards and making Heists shorter

After about two weeks of elegant heist antics in Path of Exile, the developers are hard at work improving the experience. This includes literal experience, too; right now, Heist enemies are just not providing enough experience for fighting through them. So one of the big areas the team is working on is providing more experience (especially during lockdown) and increasing the overall rewards from clearing objectives and obtaining treasure. It’s not much of a heist if the rewards feel perfunctory, after all.

On top of that, there are adjustments being made to improve the speed of Heists, with the maps planned to top out at the current Tier 1 size and increases just improving the density of rooms and rewards. Players can also expect new bosses this week, further improvements to client stability, and more general polish passes across the board. So there are areas still in need of refinement, but as always, the development team is drilling down to fix them.

I’m glad they’re making regular updates to Heist league as we go, but I kinda wish these things were found sooner. A lot of this seems so… apparent, it’s hard to imagine why it got greenlit in it’s original form in the first place.

But i absolutely shouldn’t be getting level 6 Goat Horns – even if they are unique – at level 45 in L40+ maps

That’s hardly unique to the Heist league, though.

I know. It just seems like it’s more pronounced there, though. Maybe others have more luck than I do, but I rarely find uniques while leveling or doing other content — in heist though, I find them every 2-3 maps.

It’s not the biggest frustration. Right now i’ve been trying to get a 6-socket armor to link up properly and i’m burning mats failing at that :P

That pretty well matches what I’ve been getting. And I’ve actually equipped one out of the pile.

I never did get anything six-linked during Harvest. And I was playing a 2-H build so I had two items mocking me with their puny five links. I think that’s one of the things changed for “PoE 2” with skills no longer slotted directly in items, thank Hinekora.

This meme gets more and more accurate every league :/

I hope its just because they have the “A team” working on PoE 2, and the team working on all these placeholder leagues in the meantime, isnt quite up to speed with how things are done.
