If you need more breach splinters make him the captain at transportation, if you need to upgrade a breachstone make him the captain at research etc. You can read more about Immortal Syndicate in our guide: Path of Exile Syndicate Farming Guide.

Breach Scarabs

From time to time you will get scarabs. One type is associated with breaches. There are four types of them:

  • Rusted Breach Scarab
  • Polished Breach Scarab
  • Gilded Breach Scarab
  • Winged Breach Scarab

You can get all of them randomly as loot on maps, or via Skittering Incubator and Divination cards:

  • Cameria’s Cut – Exchange 2 cards for a random Scarab
  • More is Never Enough – Exchange 7 cards for random Gilded Scarab (Drop from Gorulis, Will-Thief, the boss of Infested Valley Map).

Winged Scarabs can be obtained in the Mastermind’s Lair from an Intervention member who was at Rank 3. They can also be obtained by Harvesting a Vivid Vulture, which has a chance of giving a crafting option that upgrades a Scarab, with a chance to upgrade it to a Winged variant.

Also, you will get scarabs from immortal syndicate (as written above). And can be found in specified heist chests that contain map fragments. And other league specific rewards such as Ritual, Ultimatum, and Blight encounter rewards,.

Heists and Grand Heists

There is Breach chest type that you can find on heist or grand heist. They can contain Breach Splinters, and rarely Breachstones or Empowered Breachstones. The main trick here is to take rogues on the job who can trigger such chests in the encounter. Breach chests can occur on contracts lvl 68+ if you take Vinderi (5), Isla (4), or Tullina (2) for Trap Disarmament job. You can see the level of the skill required to succed. You can read more about it in Path of Exile 3.12 Heist Rogue Specialists Full List.

When you are there you’ll see additional collapsed hands that usually contain splinters.

Some masters have league specific chest that can contain splinters, for example.

  • You can find them in Ritual encounters as a reward.
  • Ultimatum Trialmaster can also reward you with this type of rewards.
  • Sister Casia from Blight league encounters sometimes spawn Breach reward chests that contain Breach Splinters, and rarely Breachstones or Empowered Breachstones.
  • Legion mechanics have both Breaches chest during the encounter and Obscured Incubator that will drop Breach Item.
  • You can find the Whispering Gallery node in Delve that Contains a Breach.
  • The following divination cards can also speed up you in collecting breach splinters or breachstones:
    • The Bargain (5) – Random Pure Breachstone (drops from It That Fled)
    • The Eye of Terror (8) – Pure Chayula Breachstone
    • The Obscured (7) – A random Breachstone (drops from Abyss monsters)
    • The Puzzle (5) – 5x Breachstone Splinters (can drop from Beyond demons)
  • The other one can drop from Metamorphs that Tane makes for you on maps. You need to be careful when you add organs as one of them can trigger breach reward. There are three of them: Drops additional Breach Splinters, Drops a Breach Blessing, Drops a Breachstone.
  • Obscured Delirium Orb will grant you “Modifies a Map item adding layers of Delirium with the Breach Items reward type”. Also, you can see breach specific rewards during delirium on a map.

When you get a Breachstone you can place it into your map device and open portals to the boss. But also you can upgrade your Breachstone.

How to upgrade Breachstones

Each of five Breachstones can be upgraded, There are several upgrade types:

  • Breachstone
  • Charged Breachstone
  • Enriched Breachstone
  • Pure Breachstone

If you need the best type of Chayula’s Breachstone it will be Chayula’s Pure Breachstone. Other types follow the same logic.

You can upgrade Breachstones using crafting bench in the Research or Mastermind Safehouse, if It That Fled is in the Research section of the Immortal Syndicate. We have already written about it above. Or you can read our Path of Exile Syndicate Farming Guide to learn more about Syndicate.

In the section above you can also see the ways of farming breachstones from league specific chests and rewards, but the chance to get an upgraded version is very low, so It That Fled is in the Research section of the Immortal Syndicate in the Research or Mastermind Safehouse is the only guaranteed way to upgrade PoE breachstone.

Although a random Pure Breachstone can be exchanged for 5 The Bargain divination cards and Pure Chayula’s Breachstone you can get for exchanging 8 The Eye of Terror divination cards. The Bargain divination cards drop from It That Fled. Both cards can be give for 5 The Ggambler cards and can be found in Stacked decks.
