Path of Exile 3.1 War for the Atlas is now live! A lot of features have been added to Path of Exile. Grinding Gear Games keep the game fresh continually while maintaining free-to-play status online, and doesn’t seem like easily. However, with a loyal player base that has kept coming back for more, there is so much work to do. One of those additions is the Hideouts and botting, Since the mechaincs for Hideout using in Path of Exile are somewhat ‘unpremeditated’ you should be aware of the following:
You will be way less effective and loose big amounts of everything (items/PoE currency/maps/everything)!
Why is that?
The following is a quick work routine.
Each time you come back from a normal zone via TP or via chickening, you end up in the TOWN not in your hideout! To know that is crucial for understanding why hideout & normal zones farming is useless!
Now what happens when Hideout-Option in Exiled Bot is that ofcurse the bot enters the hideout quickly after it entered the normal town (i.e after Inventory full)
Next step for the bot is identifing / selling / stashing and so on.
But what happens next is that the bot starts a new instance of the zone you setup for botting. This is due to the fact that the bot is only able to continue you previous run (in the previous instance of the zone you farm) if it detects an active TP to that zone.
Now thats an issue because our TP back to our recent zone is located in the normal town and we (the bot) are in our hideout!
The most common reasons for the bot leaving an instance is:
zone is clear
At least for me the first point (full inventory) happens most frequently (by far)
If the bot leaves an unfinished instance because of a full inventory it is most likely that you just killed a boss/rare or opened a strongbox.
Again, at least for me, most of the recently dropped items could not get picked up because my inventory was already full. (also a good example is a vaal zone: The VaalChest gets often opened after the group of magic mobs got killed and looted, so the vaalfragment is mostly the last item which gets looted)
So long text short conclusion for hideout-option enabled but botting normal zones:
Every Item you leave on the ground in your current zoneinstance is 100% lost (doesnt matters if its a unique or an mirror which you left behind)!
Each rare monster / boss not killed before leaving for clearing up you inventory will not be killed!
Not necessary to say that you have no advantage either way for using the hideout when farming normal zones…
Just wanted to say that because many people dont know that. Not because they are stupid but maybe because they never thought about that.
I’ve also firstly realized this issue when i lost eternal orb due to that and i was luckily infront of the monitor. We also can tell you that many of the people we have spoken to who have come here to buy Path of Exile 3.1.0 currency are very excited for this, as are we.
