PoE 3.17 Future Plans
Here are some future plans for Path of Exile’s brand new 3.17 League Expansion.
They plan to Rework the Atlas Worlds – the expansion will be including a full rework of the Atlas of Worlds and Path of Exile’s end-game mechanics. GGG (Grinding Gear Games) are taking your player feedback into account while they are designing the new Atlas systems and end-game pinnacle boss encounters.
Prophecy Removal; (Prophecy / Prophecies will be removed)
Silver coins, itemized Prophecies, and Pale Council fragments are going to be deleted and removed from your inventory, as well as your stash the next time you log in after the launch of the new PoE 3.17.0 League Update.
Lilly Roth will be a new possible hideout NPC. She will possibly take over hideout divination card turn-ins from Navali and should also give you access to her gem shop.
Divination Cards that grant itemized prophecies will be redesigned in collaboration with the supporters who created them.
They will be Bringing back specific rewards from other prophecies such as (Monstrous Treasure) in many new ways.
Existing Items that grant Prophecy Rewards such as Delirium Orbs or Metamorph Samples will be updated to grant a different reward type.
Note: Be sure to use up your Silver Coins, Prophecies, and Pale Council fragments before the launch of 3.17.0 in early 2022 which as stated above is going to be 21st January 2022 for PC and Mac followed by the release of 3.17.0 for console on the 26th January 2022 for both Xbox and PlayStation.
Changes to Unique Items
Unique items previously exclusive to Prophecy chains of the Pale Council fight will be added to the core drop pool.
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, Sunspite, The Effigon, The Gryphon, The Oak, Voidheart, and Wall of Brambles.
The following Fated Unique items 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 – GGG intends to implement a more interesting way to obtain Fated Unique items alongside some new items in a future expansion.

You can also comment if you want to ask a question, or if there is a specific Path of Exile / PoE guide / how-to guide you would like to see here on the PlayerAuctions Blog.
I do believe that they will revamp the Player’s Passive Skill Tree in the new 3.17 PoE league update which should then bring New Passive Skills and more.
As well as that I believe they will add new Monsters and Items such as New Gems, New Weapon Items, New Off-Hand Items, New Armor Pieces, New Jewellery, and so forth. But this is just a guess for now.
