Ascendancy Changes to Zana's Maps

Ascendancy is not just an opportunity to add big new systems and loads of content; it's also an opportunity to review and modify existing content and systems. Today we're outlining the upcoming changes to Zana and mapping in Ascendancy.

Each master has a signature mod that only appears on items they sell. As this is the item's sole mod, it has to be something worth crafting around. Zana's current prefix isn't good enough for that purpose. So with Ascendancy, we're changing Zana's mod to "This Map's Modifiers to Quantity of Items found also apply to Rarity".

This mod's benefits grow and grow with crafting. In order to not limit this mod too much, we've also raised the level of maps that Zana can sell. If we're increasing the levels of the maps she sells, why not increase the levels of her daily missions while we're at it?

This table shows (by Zana level) the maximum level of map sold, and the level of her daily mission in Ascendancy:
  • 1 | 69 | 68-69
  • 2 | 71 | 68-70
  • 3 | 72 | 69-71
  • 4 | 73 | 70-72
  • 5 | 74 | 71-73
  • 6 | 75 | 72-74
  • 7 | 76 | 73-75
  • 8 | 78 | 75-77

We have also changed how Zana prices her maps. The price of low-tier maps will be measured in Orbs of Chance. Mid-tier maps are priced in Orbs of Alchemy. The price differences for magic and rare maps has been substantially reduced, as the cost for rarity was often not worth it.

(In other news, we're aiming to have the prizes for the 24 hour Boss Kill Race fixed tomorrow. Sorry for the delay!)

Sounds good, finally what Zana needed.
Keep calm, play PoE, drink Tea & listen to Prog!

Finally, a way to get higher mid tier maps.
