Useful Methods To Make PoE Bosses More Worthwhile

Posted on January 23, 2018

Maybe you haven’t gotten terribly far in end game this league yet in Path of Exile, so do you want to know how to make bosses more worthwhile and Atlas completion more attractive? Of course, having enough poe currency is a prerequisite. Perhaps the following advice is not the best, but it will certainly help you.

Path of Exile

In Path of Exile, all bosses have a guaranteed map drop. The guaranteed drop is equal to ‘Current Tier-1’ for white maps, -2 for yellow maps, and -3 for red maps. This means completing a T5 guarantees you at least a T4 map from the boss (can roll better). Atlas completion bonus applies to this drop. So getting at least 100/157 means the drop is equal tier for white, -1 for yellow, and -2 for red maps.

Then, you should adding more bonuses for Atlas completion: Every map completed after 100/157 adds a 1% chance for the boss to drop an additional map. Maps dropped from this ‘bonus roll’ would have the ‘minimum tier level’ bonus for bosses applied to them.

Having 157/157 completion increases the level of maps dropped specifically by the boss (guaranteed AND normal/bonus drops) by an additional +1. This means the guaranteed map drops from the boss will be at minimum +1 tier for white maps (not beneficial at that stage, but whatever), equal tier for yellow, and -1 for red maps. They can still roll higher, as normal.

Personally some players don’t think map sustain should be as difficult as it is currently and they are fine with something like this, they do think this system should only apply though if you meet bonus map requirements, etc must be magic for white, rare for yellow, and corrupted for red.

Why You Need To Have A Good PoE Map Layouts

Maps (also called end-game maps) are the main type of endgame content in Path of Exile. By placing them in a map device, maps can be consumed to create a randomized instance in which monsters can be fought. Like equipment, they come in normal, magic, rare, and unique rarities and have their own special affixes. Affixes on maps can make them more difficult but also increase their potential rewards.

When you’re playing maps, you’ll find ones you like and ones you don’t like. It is important for you to have a good PoE map layouts, there are so many important reasons that you have to do.

Path of Exile

Firstly, most poe items can drop from any map equally, but there are a few map specific items. Divination cards are one of those. Certain maps are worth shaping specifically so that you can farm the cards from high tier maps. You get both the cards you want and experience, rather than having to give up one for the other. The divination cards worth farming for are up to you, but popular choices include The Doctor (for Headhunter) and Abandoned Wealth (for Exalted Orbs, you can buy exalted orbs on U4GM).

Secondly, shaping a map you like is an easy way to get one more high tier map with a layout that you’re fond of. Since you’ll be wanting to fill out your Atlas for the map rate bonus, having more good layouts to run can be a big advantage.

Finally, the good layouts can be more than personal preference though. This patch, Grinding Gear Games evened out the experience that is gained on each map, so there aren’t maps that are much faster to run. That being said, different builds are better at tackling different map layouts. For example, a Cyclone build tends to like smaller alleys, since they can just run down the alley killing everything without needing to backtrack. Maps like Waste Pool and Sewer are extremely good for these builds. Ranged builds, like Ice Shot or Kinetic Blast, on the other hand, prefer open maps like Dunes where you can take full advantage of your range. Finding the maps where your build excels can be a huge boost to your experience gain.

Therefore, it is important that you need to have a better PoE map layouts.
