High Templar Avarius
Level(s) 43
Location(s) The Chamber of Innocence
Quest(s) Death to Purity

High Templar Avarius is a unique boss located in the Chamber of Innocence. Upon defeating him, Innocence awakens.


After Dominus died, Avarius took his place into the Court of Divine Temperance as the High Templar that commands the Ebony Legion. His rise to power is suggested to have been made possible by the powers he acquired after becoming the living vessel for Innocence, one of the old Gods awakened by the death of The Beast.


Defeating Avarius and Innocence is part of the quest Death to Purity.


Avarius represents a significant paradigm shift in how boss fights occur in Path of Exile: Unlike most such enemies encountered in Act I through Act IV, High Templar Avarius and his subsequent form, Innocence, are capable of inflicting massive amounts of elemental damage through specific attacks. Withstanding said attacks is simply not viable for most characters coursing normally through the game, as even capped resistances will not ensure the player's survival when hit by the boss' most devastating abilities.

Instead, the player should focus on dodging these attacks while dishing out as much damage as possible in order to shorten the fight. Movement skills can greatly help when trying to accomplish this while adequate defenses, such as capped resistances combined with high eHP pool, should provide a slight safety net.
