Trial of Ascendancy

From Path of Exile Wiki
(Redirected from Trials of Ascendancy)
Jump to: navigation, search

The ancient Azmerians constructed complex Trials, to test aspiring leaders; body, mind and soul. To select candidates for his Labyrinth, Emperor Izaro revived this tradition with his own sinister designs.

Description on the official Path of Exile website[1]

The Trials of Ascendancy are areas to be discovered as the player travels through Wraeclast. Each trial showcases a specific type of trap, acting as a form of tutorial for the Labyrinth. Only when all six trials are completed will the player be able to enter the Labyrinth on that difficulty. Progress through the Trials of Ascendancy is shared between all of a player's characters in each league.

The trials are always located within the listed zones, but have a variable location within the zone.

The endgame trials randomly appear in maps and showcase a new type of trap, the Sentinel trap. Completing a trial rewards the player with an Offering to the Goddess. After all six endgame trials have been completed, these items can be used in the map device to open a portal to the endgame Labyrinth. The Dream Trial prophecy can be used to help discover trials in maps.
