Path of Exile Expedition League Challenges Complete Guide

We have written a new complete Path of Exile Expedition League Challenges Complete Guide. Below you can see the full list of PoE 3.15 challenges and tips on how to complete them. We have divided them into categories starting from the easiest ones. If you what to know about the Path of Exile 3.15 Expedition Challenge Rewards List just click on the link.

There are 40 challenges in PoE. Some are easy to obtain during levelling, others are harder or almost impossible to achieve. In our Path of Exile, Expedition League Challenges Complete Guide you will read the tips that will help you do as many PoE challenges as you can even all 40 if that is your goal.

Our guide is presented in the rating difficulty list. That means that we have divided the full Expedition challenges list into four difficulties: easy (the most part of them you’ll do while levelling), normal (you can obtain them with a minimal effort), hard (you’ll need to try and repeat several times to do them), very hard (you’ll need to farm numerous maps and know and be able to kill end-game bosses). If you want to get 20 challenges completed you can combine challenges from different difficulty levels to pick the most appropriate ones for you.

Normal Difficulty Expedition Challenges

These challenges are hardy autocomplete as the previous ones. Here you’ll need to do some research, but they are also pretty easy to obtain.

Complete Encounters II

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Crack open an Essence Monolith
  • Kill a Keepers of the Trove Bloodline Pack
  • Kill a Rare monster with Inner Treasure
  • Defeat Thom Imperial

These are also parts of the previous league mechanics. Essence Monoliths are freezer monsters that grat essences if you slay them. You can activate it by clicking on them three times. Keepers of the Trove is a bloodlines modifier(an upgraded version of magic rarity monster) on monsters that look like purple-tinted monsters, and this modifier will cause that pack of monsters to drop a rare item of the same type. Inner Treasure is a nemesis modifier(an upgraded version of rare rarity monster) on monsters that look like orange-tinted monsters, and this modifier will cause that monster to drop 1 guaranteed unique item. Thom Imperial is a rogue exile which is a monster that looks like a player, and they will drop a set of equipment when slain and can be easily found everywhere. But if you having a hard time finding this particular exile, can try to increase the rogue exile spawn rate by using prophecies (The Four Feral Exiles/Anarchy’s End), or Zana’s map device’s Anarchy modifier, or using New Vastir atlas passive tree nodes.

Complete Encounters III

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat The Reaver in Ramparts Map while affected by Bear Trap.
    • Tier 3 Ramparts Map, The Reaver will occasionally throw a bear trap (every 8 seconds) at your feet while fighting him, and getting caught by its bear trap can be very dangerous as it causes your character to take MORE DAMAGE from the boss’s hits. Thankfully this map has a lower-tier version so it should be easier to do this challenge. The bear trap effect duration (getting caught) is based on how much damage it dealt, so try to do this challenge in high tier map with some deadly mod so that you get more damage from the boss’s trap, thus more duration from the trap; then get the boss’s health into culling range and finishing him off when you are trapped is the easiest way to do this.
  • Defeat Stonebeak, Battle Fowl in Canyon Map after defeating Gnar, Eater of Carrion and without having damaged Stonebeak prior to Gnar’s death.
    • Tier 3 Canyon Map, This map contains 2 bosses, and whenever you kill one of them, the other boss will enrage, meaning it gets even stronger and faster. Gnar is the giant dog that does melee attacks with a high bleed chance which deals a lot of bleed damage if enraged; while Stonebeak is the bird monster that does ranged attack with high chaos damage over time and will be VERY DEADLY when enraged. Thankfully there is a low tier version of this map, and this challenge requires you to kill The Dog (Gnar) first then followed by the Bird (Stonebeak) BUT you cannot deal any damage to the Bird before The Dog is defeated. So, to do this challenge, you have to kite The Dog further away from The Bird boss first. After a safe distance, you can start DPSing down the dog. After the dog is defeated you can then kill the bird boss to finish this challenge.
  • Defeat Stone of the Currents in Wharf Map while Voltage Surge is active and while at least 15 Flood Orbs are alive.
    • Tier 3 Wharf Map, Flood Orbs is a minion monster that spawn (6 minions per phase) by the boss when it’s life reaches a certain amount threshold (25%, 50% and 75%), and Voltage Surge is a protective shield that protects the boss health. To do this challenge, try to complete the challenge in a map with the “Twinned” modifier so that the Flood Orbs will spawn more frequently when the boss health reaches certain thresholds. Also don’t kill the boss too fast because it’ll skip its “spawn phase”, and also don’t do “speed” map modifiers so that its minions won’t move up to you so fast. Lastly, do it on a low tier map and try to control your damage a bit, let the minions spawn a lot and as soon you see 15 orbs, wait for a bit for the boss to cast the protective purple shield (Voltage Surge, every 12 seconds), then when it casts the shield, cull it to complete this challenge.
  • Defeat both Titans of the Grove in a Twinned Peninsula Map.
    • Tier 4 Peninsula Map, this map boss is kinda annoying because it has an “allies cannot die” aura around it, causing nearby enemies (that small rubble is its minion) cannot die too, making the whole fight very laggy if you have flashy skills. It is not a difficult fight but is a bit annoying. And this challenge requires you to craft a “Twinned” modifier on the map causing 2 bosses in the arena. Thankfully there’s a low tier version for this map too so you can instantly kill them off without any condition as long the map you’re doing has a “Twinned” modifier.

You can see the whole list of maps in Path of Exile 3.15 Expedition League Map Tiers List.

Complete Encounters V

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Complete a Rare Blighted Map

You’ll start to encounter these in end game maps. Blight encounter is like a mini-tower defence game on a map, the best tower type to use is scout tower which acts as a free summoner to aid your fight. Finishing blight encounter can get 2 types of special reward, 1st is blighted map which is like a special version of the map that content no other monster but the blight mechanic in large scale, 2nd reward is oil currency which can be used to anoint your blighted maps, amulet(gain notables) and rings(improve blight towers). Can check all the anoint modifiers here. You can buy them from other players too and they’re mostly pretty cheap, especially for the low tiers. You can also make use of a Lira Arthain atlas passive to increase the drop rate of blighted maps. Anointing blighted maps can also make the fights easier; I would suggest 3 Amber oils which make your towers cost much less, allowing you to almost afk most maps if you spam scout and empowering towers near each other.

  • Defeat the Omnitect

You’ll start to encounter them after Act7 with Alva, Master Explorer assisting you throughout your adventure by sending you to the past of Temple Atzoatl when encounter her altar, killing any architecture from the past incursion will affect your current time Temple Atzoatl which you’ll be able to access it after completing 12 incursions with her, and at the end of the Temple Atzoatl, you’ll encounter Vaal Omnitect. Here’s a cheat sheet regarding the temple rewards. You can also buy chronicles to put into your map device and run but be sure to check that you can actually get to the Omnitect with the chronicle you buy.

  • Defeat a Bestiary Boss

To do this challenge, just buy any 1 of these 4 cheap unique beasts(Saqawine Rhex, Craicic Spider Crab, Fenumal Hybrid Arachnid, or Farric Tiger Alpha) then spawn them in your blood altar, complete the fight and take the portal to the boss encounter. The easiest bosses to kill are the Craicic Spider Crab and Saqawine Rhex.

How to Unlock All Endgame Bosses in Path of Exile contains information about every endgame boss including Bestiary ones.

  • Complete The Beachhead

The Beachhead is an endgame map filled with many Harbingers type monsters and is easy to do, just kill a bunch of harbinger monsters that’s it!  You can obtain this unique map easily from The Landing divination card which drop often from Strand map OR from upgrading map by using Harbinger’s Orb on a normal map or by buying one from a player. The Beachhead can also be a good source of experience in higher tiers.

Hard Difficulty Expedition Challenges

These challenges may cause more difficulties and extra effort to complete them. Such as extra farm of content and tactics and mechanics on killing end-game bosses.

Reach level 90

Attain character level 90. This challenge still counts even if your character dies afterwards.

You just need to play and try not to die. It can be a hard task with poor builds, so pick a decent one.

Complete Maps with Eight Mods

Complete 30 Red Tier Rare Maps while they have 8 mods. Maps having 8 mods is a potential outcome of Vaal Orb corruption. These Maps are completed by killing their Unique Bosses. Sextants, Scarabs and Zana mods do not count towards the mod count of this challenge.

This challenge is harder than unidentified rare maps. To get 8 mods on red maps (T11+ maps), you need to use a Vaal Orb to corrupt it into possibly getting 8 mods. If you need help just ask people to help you deal with the dangerous maps that you craft, or make a rotation party to farm 8 mods red tier maps. Vaal orbing rare red maps is also a good way to earn currency, as the more mods the map has the more monsters spawn and the more loot the monsters drop. Unidentified maps also have an item quantity bonus.

Unearth Expedition Areas

Unearth and enter each of the following areas in Logbook Expeditions.

  • Fortified Redoubt
  • Noxious Gutter
  • Sandy Vestige
  • Heroic Tomb
  • Spectral Hollow

This challenge requires you to find the hidden area/room within the logbook area which will be indicated with an icon (as shown on the left) in your minimap so it is pretty easy to spot them when doing your logbooks, just make sure you have enough detonators to reach that hidden spot. This challenge shouldn’t be that hard because some of these unearth areas are shared in a few different logbook areas, and you can do this challenge alongside when doing the #27 challenge, also unearth area is not that rare to spawn so should be fine. Also, most of this hidden area will contain quest/text items that are required for the 2nd part of the expedition quest named The Lost Expedition (Dannig), so try not to miss them when you enter these hidden areas.

  • Defeat Mastermind at an area level of 83

  • Defeat a Delve Boss

You can read all the details about it here: Delve Bosses.

Complete Encounters VII

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat Murgeth Bogsong in Stagnation Map while affected by Toxic Swamp.

Tier 15 Stagnation Map, the boss will sometimes create Toxic Swamps (which last for 10 seconds) in the middle of the arena when it uses its teleportation skill, causing the player to get the toxic swamp debuff when standing in the pool. So to do this challenge, lower the boss’ health into culling range (10%), then wait for the boss to cast the teleportation skill; after it teleports you to the middle of the pool, kill off the boss to complete this challenge.

  • Defeat Merveil, the Returned in Underground Sea Map while affected by at least four stacks of Screech.

Tier 16 Underground Sea Map, after the boss changes into its 2nd form, it’ll sometimes use its screech skill that lasts for 5 seconds. To do this challenge, after lowering the 2nd form boss’ life into cull range, wait for its screech skill to happen then kill it to complete this challenge.

  • Defeat both Witches of the Cauldron in a Twinned Burial Chambers Map.

Tier 15 Burial Chambers Map, this challenge is pretty straightforward, just craft a magic rarity of a Burial Chambers map with the “Twinned” modifier (prefix), kill both of the bosses then you’re done! Be cautious not to stand on the corpse of the 1st boss after you kill it because the 2nd boss can actually detonate the corpse and kill you at once.

  • Defeat the Trio in Crystal Ore Map while affected by Righteous Fire.

Tier 16 Crystal Ore Map, this challenge is a bit tricky to do because you need to kill them in the correct sequence. Try and make the Messenger of the Hollows boss your last target because that’s the boss that uses Righteous Fire. Also, you can only damage them when there’s a yellow circle underneath them, that’s the indication you can only attack them.

Defeat Medved Conditionally

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat Medved, Feller of Heroes while you are Poisoned.

Medved’s hits will apply poison to you, as well as the spiders that he also summons. Try to take a couple of hits when it is safe and the boss is within culling range. You can also go for self-poison strategies (The Golden Rule) if you have a way to be unaffected by poisons (Maw of Conquest) or have enough Chaos Resistance, or you can self-curse with Temporal Chains using Rotblood to have the poisons on you last longer. Note: It has to be unaffected by poison as you still need to be poisoned for the challenge to pop; immunity won’t apply the poison to you in the first place.

  • Defeat Medved, Feller of Heroes after he has summoned Arachnid Familiars at least five times.

During the boss fight, Medved will periodically summon Arachnid mobs that will poison on hit. Try not to burst the boss down too fast or you will skip the summoning of these mobs.

  • Defeat Medved, Feller of Heroes after defeating all three summoned Cultists within five seconds of the first Cultist’s death.

At 75, 50 and 25% health, Medved will summon a Cultist to aid in the fight. This conditional needs you to have a build capable of ignoring the Cultists while damaging Medved in order to get him to summon the Cultists. Wait until all 3 have been summoned and are low before you decide to burst them together.

  • Defeat Medved, Feller of Heroes without defeating any summoned Cultists.

As stated previously, Medved will summon Cultists at 75, 50 and 25% health. This conditional just means you need to be able to kill Medved while ensuring you stay away from the summoned Cultists and not damage / kill them.

Defeat Vorana Conditionally

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat Vorana, Last to Fall while affected by The Black Reaping.

While fighting Vorana, the sides of the arena will be covered with a dark area that causes you to take damage while you are in it. The damage debuff you take is called The Black Reaping. To complete this, just step into the darkness a little as you kill Vorana and you will get it.

  • Defeat Vorana, Last to Fall without any player causing any Orbiting Stars to collapse.

During the fight with Vorana, in the outskirts of the arena will be little white stars that circle around, periodically shooting projectiles into the arena. As long as you do not come into contact with these stars they will not collapse. As the stars never enter the arena they are quite easy to dodge.

  • Defeat Vorana, Last to Fall after causing at least 25 Orbiting Stars to collapse.

During the fight with Vorana, in the outskirts of the arena will be little white stars that circle around, periodically shooting projectiles into the arena. All you need to do is walk into 25 of these stars to collapse them. They will deal a small amount of area damage when they explode so try to keep moving, and being in the darkness will cause you to continually take damage, so try not to stay inside too long.

  • Defeat Vorana, Last to Fall without any player being hit by any collapsing Orbiting Stars or their projectiles.

During the fight with Vorana, in the outskirts of the arena will be little white stars that circle around, periodically shooting projectiles into the arena. These projectiles can be slightly difficult to spot as they are small but if you keep an eye on where the projectiles are you can easily side-step them.

Defeat Uhtred Conditionally

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat Uhtred, Covetous Traitor without any player being affected by Glimpse of Infinity or Indifference of the Cosmos.

This is possibly the hardest part of the challenge as one needs to be able to dodge a lot of boss mechanics. A blink skill with multiple charges such as Flame Dash is highly recommended. The next parts of this guide will describe what Glimpse of Infinity and Indifference of the Cosmos is.

  • Defeat Uhtred, Covetous Traitor while affected by Glimpse of Infinity.

Glimpse of Infinity is a stacking action speed reduction debuff that is applied from the light beams that shoot out of the big mirror in the room, and Uhred’s spinning laser beam attack. Each instance has a 10 second duration and they are separately timed. While fighting the boss these will periodically go off on either side of the arena or the middle. They can be quite hard to dodge if you have been hit by a few already but their damage is not too powerful. 

  • Defeat Uhtred, Covetous Traitor while affected by Indifference of the Cosmos.

Indifference of the Cosmos is a debuff that is applied by the waves of orbs that Uhtred shoots out during his attacks. These normally are quite easy to dodge if you keep running around him whenever he turns to face you.

  • Defeat Uhtred, Covetous Traitor without any player colliding with any Seeking Stars.

Similar to other boss fights, Seeking Stars are orbs that the boss spawns, that slowly move towards the player. Once an orb collides with a player, a black slowing pool with grabbing hands will appear at the collision point and damage players still in it. You need to be constantly moving to avoid these stars, so damage over time, trap/mine or totem build will be able to handle this boss easier. Beware that the star spawns from Uhtred so if you are too close, the star will instantly collide with your character, failing this part of the challenge.

Very Hard Difficulty Expedition Challenges

To complete the following four challenges you will need as much time as one week and a decent build for completing the top end-game content and bosses.

Defeat Olroth Conditionally

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat Olroth, Origin of the Fall while both Runic Gateways are active.

During the invulnerability phases, destroy both crystals; this will mean during the fight additional mobs will spawn.

  • Defeat Olroth, Origin of the Fall while both Crystal Stars are active.

During the invulnerability phases, destroy both Gateways; this will mean the remainder of the boss fight will have the crystals and their DoT aura around them.

  • Defeat Olroth, Origin of the Fall without any player being hit by Cage of Light or being affected by Exterminating Flames.

During the fight with Olroth, a symbolic. Object shaped like a triskelion will circle around the arena, periodically firing off fire-beams and shooting fire into the arena. Every once in a while it will charge up and shoot a large fire beam into the arena, leaving behind a wide line of fire. Getting hit by any of the triskelion skills will fail the challenge so be wary of where it is at all times. It moves relatively slowly and has visual indications of when it will attack, so keep an eye on it. The Cage of Light is a skill that Olroth does, which creates a circle of flame around the player, which closes in on and tries to attack the player before expanding outwards again. If you are caught in the middle of the circle you must use a blink skill to get out of it before it closes; walking through it will fail the challenge.

  • Defeat Olroth, Origin of the Fall while affected by Enervation.

Enervation is a debuff that is granted from standing in the zones that Olroth occasionally creates. During the final phase of the fight, there will always be one of these zones. Enervation lasts a couple of seconds after you leave the arena so as long as you pop into the zone just before you kill the boss you will get this conditional.

Complete Map Tiers

Complete 10,000 map tiers. Completing a tier 1 map gives 1 tier, completing a tier 2 map gives 2 tiers, and so on.

You can check the tier list here: Path of Exile 3.15 Expedition League Map Tiers List.

Complete Deadly Encounters

Defeat each of the following deadly encounters.

Complete Endgame Grinds x4

Complete any four of these encounters the specified number of times.

  • Level 100
  • Cleanse Darkshrines in the Endgame Labyrinth x400
  • Defeat waves of monsters in the Simulacrum x300
  • Complete Rare Blighted Maps x75
  • Defeat the Vaal Omnitect in an area of Level 75 or higher x60
  • Complete Logbook Expeditions in an area of Level 80 or higher x125

No need to do all of them but choose 4 the most appropriate and easy for you. We recommend skipping reaching level 100 as it is time-consuming. And to choose from: either Simulacrum, since it is much more expensive than other things that can be bought, or a labyrinth, for those who do not like to go through it.
