How To Progress Through The Atlas In Path Of Exile

In Path of Exile, it is a fact that the Atlas is incredibly complicated for new players. How do players move from tier one to 16? How do they collect maps? The following tips that players need to know.

The monsters players kill on a map can only drop a map connected to the one players are already running.

For example, Graveyard is a tier 1 map that is connected to Marshes, a tier 2 map. In order to find first Marshes (tier 2) map, players have to find it while running Graveyard (tier 1), since the two maps are directly connected. Any mob in a Graveyard map can drop a Marshes map, allowing players to then run Marshes.

Mobs have a chance to drop maps instead of regular loot whenever players are in a map of any tier. These maps that can be the same tier, one tier higher, or any tier lower than the one they’re currently running.

Players have a chance of a tier 5, tier 4, tier 3, tier 2, or tier 1 map dropping If they are playing a tier 4 map. However, the possible map drops only include maps that are connected in some way to the pathways players currently have access to on player’s Atlas.

If players beat the boss and clear the level a map gets added to the list of possible map drops.

Players shouldn’t worry about getting a bunch of copies of maps they’ve already cleared. They can sell three copies of a map to an NPC vendor in order to get a map that’s one tier higher. or if players can’t find a Marshes map, sell three Graveyards for one.

As players advance, bosses can drop maps that are two tiers higher. However, players need to have actually unlocked the tier in between the current map and the map that’s two tiers higher for this to be possible. There’s no skipping over maps!

It’s permanently added to the list of maps you can find if players have completed a map and killed the boss. Therefore, if players are running a tier four map, they can drop a different tier four map that they’ve completed, even though they aren’t connected. This is great for building up a map pool, howerevr, it doesn’t help players move forward on the Atlas.

Finally, bear in mind that PoE orbs is a prized possession which can take the player through many boss, smoothly.
