    • spawn in minimum delve 51 above.

    • spawn in minimum delve 150 above.
  • Defeat the Mastermind

    This is the last boss of syndicate hierarchy, you can access the mastermind safehouse after fill the information bar to full from killing captains of each safehouse divisions. It's full fight is all about running around the arena avoid the middle laser beam and the burning arena from 4 edges.

  • <Complete Domain of Timeless Conflict>

Even your RNG is sux collecting these card, you could buy some of the unique map at here, most of the unique map are quite cheap.

The least 4 favorite unique map I would skip is … Perandus Manor(very expensive), Doryani's Machinarium(expensive), and The Putrid Cloister(expensive) depending whose the 3rd expensive map is =D

    Depth Monster Level Base Sulphite Cost Darkness & Light Resist Monster Life Monster Damage

  • Complete 15 Syndicate Safehouses

    Part of the old betrayal mechanic where you kill syndicate then interrogate them to gain intel for their safehouses and their leader mastermind of betrayal stuff. You can make use of Valdo's Rest and Haewark Hamlet atlas ascendancy to speed up the process to spawn safehouses. Also try make more relationship between syndicates, doesn't matter is rival or trust, doing these you'll increase the chance of spawning multiple syndicate during per encounter. Try make more rivalries than trust instead so that they can fight each other(rival) when they spawn, instead of helping each other(trust) against you. Also killing the mastermind will reset your whole betrayal hierarchy, so best not to kill her and you still able to do safehouses even though her progress bar is full … unless you need her exclusive items or veil modifiers. Here's a cheat sheet regarding safehouse rewards.

    All the sample organs you collected from metamorph encounter(full green bar+1 unique organ picked) can be use in Tane's Laboratory.

You can also make use of Valdo Rest and Lex Ejoris atlas ascendancy to increase metamoprh encounter and drop rate of sample organs.

Normal. Just a small grind on some end game content in few old league mechanic, mostly gives a lot profit for doing them.

Kill Burtok, Conjurer of Bones in Necropolis Map while you are affected by Bone Roil and he is Bleeding

Normal.


36. Prove Your Worth 1,250 (40/40)

Hard. Seems like a tone down map boss grind challenge since metamorph league where required you to kill 1,500 bosses instead. You can farm map that have multiple bosses such as Arena Map, or Courthouse Map and so on as long you have Maven Witness toggled "on" on your map device … the best one will be Precinct map because of it contain 4~5 bosses, also try make use of DEADLY TWINS prophecy.

37. Socket Craftable Watchstones

NEW CONTENT! Will update later …


38. Defeat The Maven Conditionally (40/40)

NEW CONTENT! Will update later …


39. Complete Deadly Encounters

  • This is the uber Atziri, is hard fight. If you're build not that good, just invite other experience player to do it as long you supply them the map entry which is the mortal fragments.

  • This boss only spawn from beyond map's mod. He's hardly spawn but you can increase the beyond boss spawn chance by stacking the original map's mod together with zana's map device Beyond Mod but BE WARN this boss is freaking dangerous, so advice try spawn him in low tier map. Also there's magic pack monster than can spawn him too with bloodline modifier name "Voidspawn of Abaxoth" so … don't get surprise if get Abaxoth spawn in your map even though there's no beyond mod.

  • Chayula, Who Dreamt in their Domain

    This is one of the breachlord variant, a chaos type. To gain access to kill this Chaos Breachlord, you have to collect a stack of 100 Splinters of Chayula which will automatically turn into Chayula's Breachstone. This boss are the hardest among the other breachlord, just ask for help to deal with this.

  • Can access this boss domain by combining 4 guardian map fragment, required a good-bossing-build to do this fight.

  • Can access this boss domain by combining 2 shaper map fragment(Shape & Knowledge) and 2 elder map fragment(Emptiness & Terror), required a good-bossing-build to do this fight.

  • Sirus, Awakener of Worlds at Awakening Level 8 or higher

    After you collected 16th watchstone, Zana will invite you to help her kill Sirus. But this challenge need awakened which means need 32 watchstones instead. But, you can bypass this watchstone to increase your atlas awakened level by using unique watchstones or craftable watchstones which can be bought from the market.

Hard. Ah! They bring back again the optional deadly encounter challenge again since last league which is VERY NICE! 6 out of 4, for me I would skip SIRUS because of the bad fight mechanic, yes I choose UBER ELDER over SIRUS at least shaper beam doesn't kill instantly like SIRUS does … 2nd option to skip is maybe ABAXOTH depending how much my RNG to find this boss, but if you manage to find this boss then maybe you could skip UBER ELDER because of the expensive entry to spawn this boss.


40. Complete Endgame Grinds (40/40)

  • Level 100

    Nowadays there's many ways to gain a lot of experience easily such as Infused Beachhead, Pure Breachstone, Domain of Timeless Conflict, and so on … and now we even have more ways to increase experience bonus gain from other league mechanic using atlas ascendancy. But level to 100 is a huge grind though … ya poe leveling is still 10 times better than normal MMO had but … one accidental death at high level, that 10% experience is very hurtful. If your build not very end game or dying often … highly recommended to skip this.

  • Kill 100 Izaro in the Eternal Labyrinth

    Owh no they bringing back the WORST version of labyrinth challenge with no way to reduce the number πŸ™ But nowadays there's 3 new version of uber labyrinth that can get from harvest crafting(Vivid Abberarach) could make labyrinth farming even more fun and profit!

    Wow very tame version of heist grind challenge, I LOVE IT A LOT!

You can read up on No.22 challenge for more tips and tricks about grand heist.

  • Harvest the Heart of the Grove 15 times

    Killing 15 times shouldn't be a problem, small number, the boss isn't that hard either … but the main problem is to finding this boss since is all RNG now to find this boss unlike during harvest league we have a progression to spawn this boss. Here's a preview video of the boss fight, she have 3 form switch around during the fight but she doesn't have phases so you can instantly kill her if you have high damage, just not sure how are they GGG make her to spawn though … You could make use of Lex Proxima atlas ascendancy to increase it's her spawn rate during harvest encounter.

  • Use 50 Blood-filled Vessels with Maps and successfully complete all Rituals in the area

    50 is not a big number so is a doable, the fights is not that hard either and you can even do this challenge in white tier maps. You can buy the Ritual Vessel from this link, and even the stored Blood-filled vessels can be bought from this link if you really wanna rush this challenge, but not recommended because … pretty sure cheap one are stored with hard bosses.

  • Defeat The Maven 40 times

    NEW CONTENT! Will update later … Watch Grimro video about the Maven boss fight mechanic

Hard. Pretty surprise GGG are pretty tame with the numbers in this type of challenges … which is VERY GOOD! I've already bee traumatize by the 750 contract grind, literally almost trading off my soul to do that …. Doing 4 out of 6, without a doubt I would skip that Level 100 because I can't stand the repetitive grind and also sudden death of that 10% exp lost … 2nd option to skip might be labyrinth cuz I know many of yo really hate labyrinth … I mean only 1% ppl can do labyrinth XD For those who willing to do lab then may wanna skip …. 40 Maven because is a new end game boss that could be "harder" than Sirus? I will update this again when i manage to kill this boss.


I will still be active updating this page from time to time whenever I got new INTEL untill the league ends πŸ˜‰ Hopefully you guys understand my poor english and also helped new comer try to get 40/40 challenges =D
