Path of Exile Announces Prophecy Removal in 3.17

Use up those Silver Coins and say goodbye to Navali
Path of Exile announces Prophecy Removal in 3.17

Path of Exile reports that they will remove Prophecies from the game in the January expansion. That means players will need to use up their Silver Coins and saved Prophecies before the next update. 

Prophecies were introduced in 2016 and are essentially visions of a character’s future provided by Navali, an in-game NPC. In exchange for Silver Coins, Navali would give players a prophecy that can trigger specific in-game encounters or modify the outcome of existing scenarios and allow players a chance at extra rewards like currency, item drops, additional mobs, and loot.

That means we’ll also be saying goodbye to Navali. According to the post, she likely saw this coming from a mile away, though, so don’t feel bad. Since its inception, prophecies have been a core mechanic of Path of Exile. However, it’s also become outdated by newer content introduced in the dozens of updates over the years.

Grinding Gear Games also touched on these changes that are still currently planned for the next update:

  • 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 the email address associated with your Path of Exile account for a message from us.

Use up those Silver Coins and saved Prophecies while you can before the January Path of Exile expansion.
