In every expansion of POE, the map is the game-ending system that allows the players to complete many different types of maps and receive additional rewards. So a better map crafting is helpful to upgrade in the game faster and get more XP and loot.
Map TierEvery map has a tier, which determines the level of the map. Generally speaking, you could only get those low-tier maps at the beginning of the game, and simply play the maps you already have in order to gain higher tier maps.
You can move the maps from low tier to higher tier ones, but you will definitely encounter a lot of difficulties, the higher the tier, the more challenging the mods are as well as the higher their stats.
Tier 1-5 equals levels 68-72 Tier 6-10 equals levels 73-77Tier 11-17 equals levels 78-84
