Path Of Exile Guide: More Details About Atlas Of Worlds (Part 1)

Dec 11, 2020

Altas and maps have always been important parts of Path Of Exile. I bet that many novices have always been confused by those, because at first glance, you will think that they are too complicated to understand, which makes it easy for novices to give up. But what I want to say is that it is actually very easy to master. After understanding the basic principles, you will be able to access the final bosses.

How can we unlock Atlas?

After you finish the quest chain, Atlas and maps will be available.

Complete Act 10 to open Epilogue and the city of Oriath. There you will meet Officer Kirac. After finishing some simple quests, you will get a map Device and a first-tier map. Now you can clear the maps and see your progress in Atlas.

After cleaning up some maps, you will meet a Master cartographer - Zana. She is the key to the Atlas quests, so when you finished her quest, don't forget to check her item stock.

Atlas region

In POE, there are more than 170 different maps, and maps also have their own tiers. There are 16 in total, divided into 3 categories:

Low-tier (1-5): White maps

Mid-tier (6-10): Yellow maps

Top-tier (11-16): Red maps

All maps are bound to a specific Atlas area, there are 8 in the game:

Glennach Cairns

Haewark Hamlet

Lex Ejoris

Lex Proxima

Lira Arthain

New Vastir

Tirn's End

Valdo's Rest

Each area has its own Citadel, it is very important to open all of these Citadels because you will insert Watchstone in the process.


When you during your exploration, you will meet the conquerors. When you reach the outer regions, you will meet the conquerors:

Hunter: AL-Hezmin

Redeemer: Veritania

Warlord: Drox

Crusader: Baran

The first person you meet is Baran. This is the quest you accepted from Officer Kirac. The conqueror will expand his influence, which means that there will be 3 more encounters with him. After that, this area will be colored of the Conquerors', and you should be able to notice that when you open Atlas. The counter is on the left side of Atlas. They represent the number of maps you need to clear in the area, after that you can find the specific location of the conqueror. The markers have different colors:

Yellow: represents the number of maps you have already clear

Blue: represents influenced monsters encoder

Until the third encounter, you can open the portals to the Conqueror's Citadel by speaking with Kirac and Zana. If you can defeat it, you will get a Watchstone and a great drop.


It is an upgrade item, you can insert it in the proper slot of the Citadel. In the Atlas questline, you will be able to obtain the first Watchstone by killing the conquerors. There are up to 4 Watchstones in each area at the same time. They also have different colors:

Blue: Cobalt Watchstone

Red: Crimson Watchstone

Yellow: Golden Watchstone

Green: Viridian Watchstone

White: Ivory Watchstone (a unique Watchstone dropped from Sirus)

Whenever you insert a Watchstone in the Citadel, the minimum Tier will increase and new maps will be added to the previously invisible regions.

To find out how many socketed Watchstones are needed, you can view the current quests or on the left side of Atlas.

When you get 20 Watchstones, Zana will open six portals to the final boss - Sirus, Awakener of Worlds. You need to do your best to defeat it.

Those are the 1 part about Altas and maps, if you're interested in this, you can stay tuned to, We will update news and game guides often.

If you are a novice and addicted to POE, I bet you need POE Currency. As for cheap POE Currency, is the best place to go.
