Cartographer's Sextant

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Cartographer's Sextant is a currency item that can be used to add an atlas modifier to the Atlas of Worlds.

Mechanics

Cartographer's Sextants are used on the Atlas of Worlds to add a random mod to a map. This effect has a radius on the Atlas, so any map with a sextant mod can apply that mod to other nearby maps on the Atlas within a certain range. Sextant mods applied to the Atlas last a total of three uses of maps within the radius.

Sextants come in three variants. An Apprentice Cartographer's Sextant can only be applied on a map up to Map Tier 5. A Journeyman Cartographer's Sextant can only be applied on a map up to Map Tier 10. A Master Cartographer's Sextant can be applied on any map. The matching tiers can be recognized by the color or name:

Simple SextantSimple SextantStack Size: 10Adds or rerolls a modifier on a Watchstone.Right click this item then left click a Watchstone to apply it.
Shift click to unstack.
Low-tier maps (Tier 1 to 5)
Prime SextantPrime SextantStack Size: 10Adds or rerolls a modifier on a Watchstone.Right click this item then left click a Watchstone to apply it.
Shift click to unstack.
Mid-tier maps (Tier 1 to 10)
Awakened SextantAwakened SextantStack Size: 10Adds or rerolls a modifier on a Watchstone.Right click this item then left click a Watchstone to apply it.
Shift click to unstack.
Top-tier maps (Tier 1 to 16)

Initially, only one sextant can be active on the Atlas at a time. This limit can be increased by completing all Atlas objectives for all (non-unique) White, Yellow, and Red maps, plus completing the Epilogue quest, for a total of 5 active sextants.

When placing a sextant on a map that is already affected by a sextant, it will not roll the same sextant mods as the ones it is already on it. Overlapping sextant areas will optimize the chances of receiving a specific mod.

List of Modifiers

Level indicates sextant type, white are 1, yellow are 73 and red are 78.

NameFor generated item/monster modifiers the minimum item/monster level respectively. Some generation types may not require this condition to be met, however item level restrictions may be raised to 80% of this value.Stats

Version history

Version Changes
3.9.0
  • Apprentice Cartographer's Sextants are now called Simple Sextants. Journeyman Cartographer's Sextants have been renamed Prime Sextants, and Master Cartographer's Sextants have been renamed Awakened Sextants. They each have new art.
  • Sextants are no longer used on maps on your Atlas. They are now used on Watchstones, which can be socketed in your Atlas, and affect all the maps in that region. We've reviewed and modified a number of Sextant modifiers.
3.7.0
  • Added 18 new Sextant modifiers, many of which only appear on high-tier maps.
  • Added 3 new Tormented Spirits, found via Sextants.
  • Added 2 new Shrines, found via Sextants.
2.4.1
  • The Sextant mod system has been significantly reworked.
  • There is now a vendor recipe for upgrading Sextants to a higher tier. Three of a tier will return a higher-tier Sextant.
  • The vendor recipe for the Cartographer's Seals has been changed to three Sextants of the appropriate tier and an Orb of ScouringOrb of ScouringStack Size: 30Removes all modifiers from an itemRight click this item then left click on a magic or rare item to apply it.
    Shift click to unstack.
    .
  • Sextant mods no longer appear on maps they cannot apply to.
  • Sextants can be used on an Atlas map that already has a sextant mod. This will reroll a new Sextant mod in its place.
  • In addition to disabling or upgrading sextants that were not rewarding or impactful enough, we're also adding a large number of new sextant effects. These new sextant effects perform a variety of roles: Some reward players for playing specific types of maps, some mitigate the effects of some of the more dangerous or restrictive map mods, some add new effects that increase your speed or damage while increasing the map's challenge, and others add interesting new monsters to slay.

The following Sextant mods can no longer be rolled:

  • Items dropped by Unique Boss are Corrupted
  • Players and Monsters have increased Damage per Curse on them
  • Players and Monsters have increased Critical Strike Chance
  • Maps have an additional random Property
  • Areas contain Forsaken Masters
  • Randomly dropped Items are Normal instead of Magic
  • Living Weapons
  • Players and Monsters take increased Damage while stationary
  • While on Elemental Ground, Players have increased Damage of the associated Damage Type
  • Strongbox contents are Mirrored

2.4.0b
