How Long Does It Take For Path Of Exile Uber Lab Runs?

How Long Does It Take For Path Of Exile Uber Lab Runs?

In Path of Exile, I know that lab runners with a dedicated build are quite fast but What about the average player? In fact, when you keep an eye on poe currency purchase, you will find things will become easier. Next, Let’s take a look at the time spent by different players in uber lab runs:


1. 20-30 minutes. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to squash the habit of killing every monster that crosses my path. Also I am godawful at dodging traps, so trying to speed through them usually just gets me killed. Especially the spikes + Blade Sentries combo. I have to go especially slow for those. Tl:dr speed clears are just not my thing.

2. The 2-3 minute time is my lab racer who insta-gibs izaro with GC mines and has < 2k life. So yeah, he makes 15ex in 3 minutes, so he’s not too concerned about keys.

The 4-5 minute times I’ll grab Dark Shrines, Argus, Puzzles, and Gauntlets that aren’t completely out of the way. Extras aren’t worth it if you could just run lab a second time and get another 3 keys and another enchant. At least to me.

3. 20-30 minutes is really slow if youre farming lab lol. I was able to pull out like 15-18 minute runs on my rf guardian when I wasnt even using brightbeak and had dogshit attack speed.

4. I am now down to 8 to 13 minute lab runs on average. At the start of a league, I am usually pulling 15 to 20 minute lab runs, as I get more HP, more levels, and etc the time comes down. I honestly don’t look at the time on my lab runs, I would rather be safe and take an extra 5-10 minutes, than die half way through and get nothing.

5. Usually like 20~30 minutes for my first 6-key run of a league but more like 8 minutes a week later when I have a character using a brightbeak prismatic eclipse leap slam weapon swap and have real DPS for izaro.

What about you? Any build can weaponswap to brightbeak/prismatic eclipse and leap slam through a reasonable clear grabbing everything on main path in 10 mins or so. Maybe longer if you have low regen and need to wait for that between traps.

Effective Beastcrafting Tips In PoE Bestiary League

Effective Beastcrafting Tips In PoE Bestiary League

In PoE bestiary league, beastcrafting is a method of crafting by sacrificing beasts to the blood altar in the Menagerie. Up to four beasts can be sacrificed at a time, though the number and type of beasts used depend on the recipe.


When beastcrafting, the four beasts chosen are released into the arena surrounding the blood altar and must be killed to complete the recipe. If the player dies during the attempt, the recipe fails and the beasts are lost. The following tips you should know:

  1. A lot of this stuff is basic, but I thought it might be useful to somebody out there.
  2. Only the LV of the first beast in the recipe matters. Beast LV doesn’t matter for all recipes (for example, it doesn’t look like it has any effect on the rerolling rare items with a specific mod craft).
  3. Special Beasts are more likely to appear in areas where their base enemy type shows up. So for example, the cavern near the end of Act 6 is a great place to farm Deep One beasts (for the Prophecy craft).
  4. Higher rarity beasts can take the place of lower rarity beasts. So if there’s a unique beast in Act1-10 of the same type that you need, that’s an easy way to get one.
  5. The Faun is a really easy unique beast to farm since it appears at the end of The Climb in Act 1 (so you can start in The Lower Prison and backtrack) and has a great leveling recipe (Quicksilver Flask with extra movement speed). Worth farming up a few until you get a couple with rolls you like.
  6. The create a unique recipes can create uniques from any league. Beast LV does matter here (so if you’re hoping for a specific one, make sure you’re LV is over the requirement).
  7. You can sell 3 nets of one tier for 1 net of the next tier up through tier 9. Selling 3 tier 10 nets will give you 1 special net that can target dead beasts.

Any other interesting tips you’ve come up with for beastcrafting? I believe that other experienced players will be better than my tips, but these are the reasons for my success, and I sincerely hope it will help you too.
