Path of Exile Utimatum League Challenges Complete Guide

We have written a new complete Path of Exile Utimatum League Challenges Complete Guide. Below you can see the full list of PoE 3.14 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 Path of Exile 3.14 Ultimatum 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, Ultimatum 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 Ultimatum 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 challenge completed you can combine challenges from different difficulty levels to pick the most appropriate ones for you.

Easy Difficulty Ultimatum Challenges

As we have already said you’ll see them get completed while you play and level-up your champion. If you finish the last act you’d probably have all the following 12 challenges completed.

Mastering the Basics

Equip or allocate each of the following items or passive skills:

  • Coral Ring
  • Magic Flask
  • Keystone Passive Skill

It is very easy, you will loot the first two at the very beginning of the game, just be sure to equip them. Even if you will not use them, just equip so it counts for the challenge. As for the keystone passive skill, it is one of the big passive skills, any build needs at least one of them.

Complete Ultimatum Encounters I

Complete each of the following encounters:

  • Apply a Modifier to an Ultimatum encounter
  • Complete an Ultimatum encounter without completing all waves
  • Complete all waves of an Ultimatum encounter

It is a part of the challenge league mechanics. You can read more about it in our Path of Exile 3.14 Ultimatum Mechanics Guide. But in a few words, just try to pick any of Ultimatum league modifiers when you activate the trial and complete any number of trials. On the next trial complete the other part of the challenge.

Complete Encounters I

Complete each of the following encounters:

  • Defeat a Rogue Exile
    • A Rogue Exile is a monster that looks just like a player and will drop a set of equipment when slain. They can be easily found anywhere throughout the game.
  • Use a Remnant of Corruption on an Essence Monolith
    • An Essence Monolith is a pack of monsters that are frozen in crystal, players will have to click them 3 times to release them, and will drop essence(s) when slain. These essences can be used to turn normal items into rare ones with 1 guaranteed mod, which changes depending on the essence type and scaling depending on the tier of the essence. Sometimes an essence monster will have a Remnant of Corruption when encountering it. Defeating this monster will drop it. Using a Remnant of Corruption on a non-corrupted essence corrupts it, changing results unexpectedly. Click here to buy Remnants of Corruption.
  • Complete a Breach
    • You’ll start to encounter these in end game maps. Breach encounters will look like a giant purple hand coming out from the ground, walking over the hand will expand a circle outwards and spawn breach monsters within the circle; the faster the monsters are killed the faster the circle expands. After a while, the expansion of the breach will slow down until it eventually retracts quickly and closes. There are 5 types of breaches that can be encountered, each with its own boss area if you can gather 100 of the respective element’s splinters dropped from breach monsters. 
  • Complete an Abyss
    • You’ll start to encounter Abyssal encounters after Act 6 onward. Upon walking over an abyss encounter, a crack will form on the ground, and a small number of monsters will spawn from it. As you follow the crack it will extend until ending with a pit which will spawn more monsters. After you clear monsters fast enough, it may start a new crack from the pit to follow, or reveal an abyssal chest that will drop some items including Abyssal Jewels that can be used on your passive tree, or if you’re lucky enough, an Abyssal Depth area will spawn that contain more treasure with a greater challenge.

All of these are simple old challenge leagues mechanics, just don’t skip them as you go.

Normal Difficulty Ultimatum 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.

  • Pass through a Delirium Mirror
  • Successfully complete a Rare Blighted Map
  • Defeat a Legion General
  • Defeat Omnitect in Temple of Atzoatl

Delirium is a past league mechanic that greatly enhances monsters and loot while also adding in new monsters and modifiers for the players to fight. Near the start of an area or map, you will occasionally see a foggy mirror that you must walk through to start the encounter. You will start randomly encountering these mirrors from act 5 onwards.

You can only get blighted maps from blight encounters in maps and some league mechanics. You can buy them from other players too and they’re mostly pretty cheap, especially for the low tiers. Try to make as many Scout Towers as you can in blighted maps as they act as strong summons aiding your fight, making them super useful when your build is not that strong at clearing monsters. 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 and/or more rewarding.

A Legion encounter is a giant purple crystal that will release 2 legions of monsters on two sides of the crystal when activated. Damaging the enemies while they are in stasis will free them when the timer runs out, where they can be fought and killed for loot. Legion encounters can only be found in maps. Sometimes legion encounters will also have legion generals present, which can be seen by the purple tendrils at the purple crystal pointing towards the general when you first click it.

The Vaal Omnitect is the boss for the Incursion league mechanic. Starting from act 9 you will randomly encounter Alva in areas and she will send you on a mission to the past to build a Vaal temple that you will then be able to raid for loot and experience in the present day once it is complete(after 12 trips to the past). The Omnitect is located at the top of the temple and you must successfully open up a path to the boss in order to be able to fight and defeat it.

Complete Encounters III

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat a Possessed Unique Monster
  • Open a Unique Strongbox
  • Make a trade with Cadiro Perandus
  • Complete a Grand Heist

Tormented Spirits are monsters that look like green-ghostly spirits that roam around and will run away from you when you go near them. They can also touch/possess rare or unique monsters that cause those influenced monsters to gain new abilities and drop more loot. This challenge requires you to kill a unique monster that has been possessed, which requires you to push a Torment Spirit towards a unique monster so that they will possess the monster, this is the normal way of doing it but there are many ways of finding and killing possessed monsters easier such as using the Possessed Foe prophecy.

A Unique Strongbox can be easily found in the Obas Cursed Trove unique map, or from Zana’s Mission that asks for the opening of a unique strongbox, or from Haku in fortification in Betrayal. You can also test your luck by using an orb of chance on a strongbox and hoping it’ll turn unique. Most of the time throughout playing the game you’re bound to come across a unique strongbox fairly regularly.

Using a perandus scarab or from certain atlas passive points, you will be able to encounter Cadiro who you can trade items for using Perandus coins dropped by perandus chests that spawn alongside Cadiro. Certain Janus safehouses may also include Cadiro.

A blueprint can be obtained practically anywhere, but at slightly a rarer rate than a normal Heist contract drops. After you reveal some of the rooms/wings with Whakano at the cost of Rogue Markers and plan which rogues you will choose for the heist in the Planning Room which is located in the middle of Rogue Harbor town, it can be used to start a Grand Heist by bringing the confirmed item to Adiyah to activate it. Below is a table of what types of blueprints give what rewards.

Blueprint TypeFinal room reward type
library/laboratoryreplicas and experimented
smuggler den/underbellytrinkets
office/bunker/mansionenchanted armaments

All of these are mechanics from previous leagues. You can find any of them in our blog in search for more details. But you might not need them to complete the challenge.

Complete Encounters IV

Complete each of the following encounters.

  • Defeat The Sanguine Siren in Crimson Temple Map while all players are affected by Temporal Chains
    • The boss of this map will sometimes cast Temporal Chains on the players in the arena. Wait until they have cast it before bursting the boss down. Alternatively, you may use a self curse item such as Shackles of the Wretched or Rotblood Promise to curse yourself with Temporal Chains and kill the boss. Maps can also roll a “Players are affected by Temporal Chains” mod. You may also use the Kaom’s Roots boots so that you are not too slow when fighting the boss. Click here to buy Crimson Temple maps in Softcore Ultimatum.
  • Defeat Blackguard Avenger and Blackguard Tempest in Promenade Map while all players are affected by Conductivity
    • Similar to the Sanguine Siren, these bosses place areas near them that inflict curses. Stand in these areas while killing the bosses to complete this part of the challenge. Alternatively, you may use a self curse item such as Shackles of the Wretched or Rotblood Promise to curse yourself with Conductivity and kill the bosses. You will want to use a low-level curse and a topaz flask to ensure you don’t get bursted down while you have lower lightning resistance. Click here to buy Promenade maps in Softcore Ultimatum.
  • Defeat Nightmare’s Omen in Primordial Pool Map while there are at least 8 Rune Traps active
    • As you continue to fight the Nightmare’s Omen in the Primordial Pool map, the boss will slowly spawn rune traps that will activate and explode once you step on them. In order to get 8 Rune traps active, you have to wait around until they spawn and not activate them. A tanky or evasive build is advised for this as you may need to wait a bit for the runes to spawn. Click here to buy Primordial Pool maps in Softcore Ultimatum.
  • Defeat Mirage of Bones in Leyline Map while there are at least 3 Clones active
    • While fighting the Mirage of Bones, it will occasionally use Blink Arrow or Mirror Arrow and make clones of itself to try and bamboozle you. Wait until the boss has made 3 clones of themselves and kill them. An easy way to tell the clones apart is that the clones can’t move or use abilities so watch out for that. Also, the main boss will still have the debuffs you have put on it so also look out for that too. Click here to buy Leyline maps in Softcore Ultimatum.

Try to do these challenge on lower tier maps and you’ll be fine. But if you still have any problems you can ask for help in chat.

Following a revamp to the Betrayal reward system, a new Veiled Chaos Orb has been introduced which works like a normal Chaos Orb but also guarantees an additional veiled mod, which has been buffed substantially in the 3.14 patch. You can get Veiled Chaos Orbs from completing Betrayal Safehouses the most, namely with Aisling. These are also tradable. Click here to buy Veiled Chaos Orbs.

Incursion improvements mean that you can now receive a map-item of a completed Temple of Atzoatl that can be traded to players or saved up and ran all at once if you so wish!

  • Defeat The Trialmaster without any player being hit by Spear Pulse
  • Defeat The Trialmaster after collecting all of his hostile currency
  • Defeat The Trialmaster while affected by Trialmaster’s Tether and without any player being hit by the Trialmasters Heart

We have written above how to find The Trialmaster who shows up on the 10th wave of Ultimatum trials. As for the conditions, you’ll need to have a well-geared build with decent damage to burst boss while avoiding his abilities. Or a mobile build that can dodge boss’ attacks.

Complete Deadly Encounters

Complete each of the following encounters while the area is affected by the specified map modifier.

  • Maven’s Invitation: The Formed with “Monsters are Hexproof”
  • Maven’s Invitation: The Twisted with “-x% Maximum Player Resistances”
  • Maven’s Invitation: The Forgotten with “Players gain 50% reduced Flask Charges”
  • Maven’s Invitation: The Hidden with “Monsters fire 2 additional Projectiles”
  • Maven’s Invitation: The Feared with “Monsters have 100% increased Area of Effect”

To complete this challenge you need to complete endgame special Maven’s Invitations with specific modifiers. You can find the list of these invitations in Path of Exile Echoes of the Atlas Guide. You can get them as a drop (as mentioned in the guide) or buy them on PoE trade and modes you can craft. Prepare for a great challenge here.

Complete Endgame Grinds x4

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

  • Level 100
  • Defeat Argus in the Endgame Labyrinth x100
  • Complete Delve encounters at an area level of 80 or higher in the Azurite Mine x500
  • Spend Ritual Tribute on Favours or Rerolls. Tribute spent on Rerolls is treated as if there are no-cost reductions applied. x2000000
  • Defeat the Mastermind x20
  • Complete Modifiers in Inscribed Ultimatums x600

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 Spend Ritual Tribute on Favours or Rerolls as it is. As for the other ones do the ones you think are the easiest for you.
