The new league has started in Path of Exile and it brought a lot of fun. If you liked Ritual league you will like Ultimatum even more. It is dynamic interesting and not hard for understanding but also it brings a lot of rewards. Read more details in Path of Exile 3.14 Ultimatum Mechanics Guide below.
The Trials of Chaos
You will see Ultimatum encounters in every zone, a little icon on the minimap will tell you when you approach them. Trialmaster will ask you to chose the first condition for your trial among three options. You will see what to expect. Some of them will summon untargetable totems that deal some type of elemental damage. Others will strengthen monsters or change fail conditions. It is important to remember that some options will make it possible to fail the trial even if you don’t die, so read all the conditions carefully.
You will see the first reward if you succeed in the first trial. Under it there is main task. As you can see you’ll need to defeat waves of enemies here. That means that when you begin the trial you’ll need to kill a certain amount of enemies to succeed, you’ll see the line that ought to be filled. Some trials will require to survive for the certain period of time, or to complete other objectives if you activate the certain condition.
After you complete the first encounter, you’ll see the next reward. You can risk the first reward to get both. But you will need to activate another condition. Some of them will level up the first one, others can put debuffs on you. Be careful as you choose.
You can take reward and go if you don’t like to take the risk, but in the beginning of the game it is better to risk it all. If you die you don’t lose XP, but if you succeed you can get some great rewards. The difficulty of the trial and its rewards depend on zone level, so you will meet stronger foes in every following encounter, but if you get some good items from Ultimatum it will be easier to clear the next one.
You will fight in the bloody circle, which unlike Ritual league can be crossed, but if you stay outside the circle for more than 5 seconds you’ll fail the trial. Use this opportunity only if you see that you lose anyway, but dying is not the option, so you just cancel it and fail.
Inscribed Ultimatums you can obtain in end-game as a drop on maps. They will have random modifiers from the list that we have written in Path of Exile 3.14 Ultimatum Modifiers Guide. Inscribed Ultimatums are tradable items and you can sell or use them yourself on your map device. Read the conditions attentively as you will need to bring a mentioned sacrifice with you. The Trialamster will design a harder encounter for you and you will get a chance to double your sacrifice or lose it all.
One of the modifiers that you can get on Inscribed Ultimatums is The Trialmaster modifier. It is not yet activated in the game but it will give you the opportunity to open the encounter where you’ll need to defeat The Trialmaster himself.
