Vaal fragments

The regular sacrifice Vaal fragments are required to open a portal to the Apex of Sacrifice, where the player can encounter Queen Atziri and her four unique subordinates. The fragments can only be obtained from Vaal Vessels in corrupted areas or from bosses in corrupted maps. The drop ratios within the fragments are about 4:3:2:1. With a 50% chance of a Vaal skill gem dropping, the chances are 20% for Dusk, 15% for Dawn, 10% for Noon and 5% for Midnight.[1]

Map quantity

If the player places a fragment along with a map into the map device, the map will have an additional 5% quantity of dropped items. Mortal fragments grant 10% quantity. Multiple fragments can be used to stack extra quantity. Multiples of the same fragment will not work.

Corrupted areas

When put in the map device, a fragment spawns a random corrupted area. Adding more fragments increases the item quantity of the area, the same way it works with maps. As long as they aren't placed in the correct arrangement, a full set of fragments will open a corrupted area with 15% increased item quantity. Corrupted areas created with fragments can drop map-exclusive unique items.

The level of the area will depend on the fragment used:
