A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

Layout

The map is an island inhabited by pirates that revive as undead when the player interacts with the boss (simply named Fairgraves). They then spawn a number of loot containers called Booty Chests, which drop currency and spawn the boss Fairgraves, Never Dying.

Fairgraves will appear a few seconds after opening a Booty Chest. When the first seven booty chests are opened, Fairgraves only uses his basic Spectral Throw with additional projectiles, and will disappear after 10–20 seconds, regardless of whether or not you engage in combat with him (this may be different behavior from previous patches, but it is how it currently works in Version 2.0.0h). Furthermore is the loot from Fairgraves apparitions proportinal to % of life lost, while fighting him. It is possible to open multiple chests next to each other, spawning multiple copies of Fairgraves, but you can simply run away before they even spawn and return to loot the currency later.

When the final eighth Booty Chest is opened, a large pack of ghost pirates are summoned in a circle around the chest and the final Fairgraves boss appears on top of the chest, using all of his abilities, does not disappear over time, and can finally be killed.

Version history

Version Changes
3.1.0
  • Mao Kun: Monsters no longer gain Power and Endurance charges every 20 seconds, as this was consistently causing performance problems. These monsters now have a chance to gain those charges on hit. The number of monsters that appear in this map has been reduced, but the area now grants an increase to experience gained to compensate.
3.0.0
  • Fixed a bug on the Mao Kun map which caused items to be generated at the wrong level.
  • Fixed a bug where Fairgraves in the Mao Kun map would kill monsters in Essence Monoliths and others that he was not meant to. Shame on you, Fairgraves.
1.1.5
  • Fixed how the vanishing Fairgraves held his weapons in the Mao Kun unique map.
1.1.2b
  • Fixed issues with players becoming blocked by booty chests in the Mao Kun unique map. These chests no longer block movement after they are opened.
1.1.2
  • Introduced to the game.
