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

This map contains 4 floors with 6 waves of monster spawning per floor. The initial wave consists of 35 monsters and increases by 2 monsters per wave up to a possible maximum of 83 monsters on wave 25. The map is guaranteed to drop at least one unique item,[1] regardless of item level.[2]

The Monster types of each wave are randomly picked from a pre-defined list of wave-types; The final wave is the exception to this, where Infector of Dreams is accompanied by monster types that can only appear during the final wave. While the monster level stays the same, magic and rare monsters increase with every wave. Additionally, at the end of every wave a rare Necromancer[3] spawns.

Several flavour/hint messages appear in the chat window during the map:

  • When a new wave begins: "The darkness looms forebodingly..."
  • When the current room has been fully cleared: "The room grows still and quiet..."
  • When the last room has been fully cleared: "The oppressive atmosphere slowly dissipates..."

Version history

Version Changes
3.7.0
  • The entirety of the Coward's Trial map has been redone. If you're lucky enough to get one, make sure you use it!
3.1.0
  • Added 32 new maps including two new Unique maps.
  • The entire Atlas has been reworked. Many map names have changed, as have their balance, tier and position on the Atlas. Many maps have also had their boss fights swapped or completely reworked.
  • The rules used to generate monsters in endgame maps have been significantly reworked and rebalanced around the rate at which we expect players to reliably clear out the map. In general, narrow, linear maps will contain fewer total monsters than maps with complex layouts. We will be closely monitoring and adjusting the balance of this change and expect to make further changes and improvements over time.
