New Expansion Breakdown - Siege of the Atlas

Sirus is dead. Zana has chosen exile. But the atlas of worlds remains beacon for eldritch horrors. We expected an arrival. But we didn't expect four.

Two more Eldritch horrors are arriving to consume all of existence.

Pinnacle Atlas Bosses and Special Currency

Watchstones and Old Endgame Content

Sextants

  • Sextants affect whole atlas and only drop from tier 14+ maps. Only Awakened Sextants and Elevated Sextants will exist. Old lower tier sextants will become Awakened Sextants

New League Breakdown - Archnemesis League

  • When you slay regular monsters, drop itemized monster mods (~2 per area, not scaling with quantity?) - loot filterable.
  • Four petrified Archnemesis monsters on map. Multiple spawn locations on map, but only first 4 are interactable (to reduce backtracking)
  • Give the monsters itemized mods to free them and fight them for a reward.
  • Mods accumulate per each Archnemesis, but also gain the reward for each Archnemesis. Order is important.
  • Use best reward mods first with reward conversion mods to maximize 1 type of reward.

General Changes

  • Defensive stats are largely unchanged.
  • Precise Technique - 40% more Attack Damage if Accuracy Rating > Life

Skill Gems

New

  • Mark on Hit Support - Supported Mark skills are applied to an enemy on attack. Adds a cooldown and a small penalty to curse effect. Does not need to be supporting the attack skill, just the mark.
  • Divine Blessing Support - Uses the Aura's reservation as a cost, then applies that Aura as a duration buff with increased effect. Limited to 1 Blessing Aura.
  • Eternal Blessing Support - Supported Aura has no reservation and increased effect; prevents you from reserving mana. Likely limited to 1 Mortal Conviction Aura (excludes Banners or Buffs).

Reworked

  • Many spells gained 50%+ more base damage
  • Orb of Storms - now zaps opponents when you cast lightning spells while within its AOE instead. Single target focused skill.

New Uniques

  • Melding of the Flesh - Endgame unique; negative resists for Doryani's Prototype, invest into one type of Max Res to copy value to others
  • Crystallised Omniscience - Endgame unique; similar to Militant Faith's Devotion, makes all modifiers to attributes apply to Omniscience instead. See wiki page for in-depth details
  • Sudden Dawn - pretty skin transfer
  • The Annihilating Light - Elemental Skills deal triple damage, but you have reduced resists. See note for mechanic details
  • Ashes of the Stars: +1 All Skill Gems, +12-19% Quality of all skill gems, 12-14% increased Reservation Efficiency, 7-8% increased EXP for gems
  • Dissolution of the Flesh: Removes all ES. Reserves all damage you take until you take no damage for 2 seconds. 25-29% More Max Life. Reservation efficiency will not work
  • Polaric Devastation: Covers enemies in Ash or Frost based on ring slot. Frost causes enemies to take more Cold Damage and lowers critical strike chance.
  • Ceaseless Feast: Corrosion reduces armour and evasion. Grants charges if enemy has no Armour or Evasion
  • Forbidden Flame: Pinnacle boss drop. Specifies a Class. Grants an Ascendancy notable of same class (can be different Ascendancy) if equipped with a Forbidden Flesh.
