Map

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Maps serve as the endgame content in Path of Exile. Like equipment, they come in magic, rare, and unique rarities and have their own special affixes. Affixes on maps can make them more difficult but can also increase your potential rewards. Maps can also have quality, you can raise its quality by using a Cartographer's ChiselCartographer's Chisel
Stack Size: 20Improves the quality of a mapRight click this item then left click a map to apply it. Has greater effect on lower rarity maps. The maximum quality is 20%.
Shift click to unstack.
.

Maps can drop from anything that can drop items of item level 60 or higher. Non-map areas cannot drop maps higher than level 66, as of patch 0.10.8.

Maps of level 67 or greater can drop from anything inside a map that can drop items of the same item level. So magic monsters can drop maps 1 level higher than the map they reside in, rare and unique monsters 2 levels higher.

You can access this content after completing the quests for Lady Dialla in Act 3 on merciless difficulty. You can then access the Eternal Laboratory where maps can be used.

As of version 1.1.2 there are 65 base maps and 7 unique maps.

Modifiers

Each (non-unique) map can have up to 3 prefixes and 3 affixes, just like other items. Currency related to rarity also works the same, for example an orb of alchemy will turn a basic map into a rare. Modifiers for maps change the properties of the map when one is in that map, thereby making it more difficult and (usually) resulting in increased item quantity for all drops on that map. High increased quantity also affects the drop rates of maps while in a particular map, so high modifiers will increase your chances at continuing to get map drops and finding higher level maps to use.

Map Bosses

See map bosses to see what boss resides in what map.

Unidentified Maps

It is possible to put unidentified maps into the map device in the Eternal Laboratory. There is a +30% Item Quantity bonus when running these maps, but even when you enter the map the specific modifiers to the map are not revealed to you, even though the overall quantity is. Some are easy to observe, burning or chilled ground are very obvious for example, but others are harder to know immediately. As such, it's recommended that you have a strong character before tackling such maps, otherwise the map could have many dangerous affixes to put your character in danger. Unidentified maps can be obtained as map drops, or by vendoring 3x magic or rare maps of the same base type.

This bonus does not apply to unidentified Unique maps.[1]

Sacrifice at Dawn/Noon/Dusk/Midnight

Placing any one of the sacrifice vaal fragments with a map into the map device will increase the IIQ of that map by 5% per sacrifice piece. Doubles or triples of the same piece will not work.

Map-only drops

The following unique items can only drop in maps[2]. Note that the minimum required item level isn't the same as the lowest map it can drop in. See item level for more information.
