The Perandus Challenge Leagues

Launching alongside Path of Exile: Ascendancy on March 4, the Perandus Challenge Leagues offer the wealth of the Eternal Empire. Discover caches of Perandus family treasure, slay their guardians, and claim the coins contained within. Trade these coins to Cadiro Perandus himself to receive vital equipment and ancient artefacts.

The Perandus Ascension

Before the Cataclysm, and before the Purity Rebellion, the Perandus family ruled over Sarn. Chitus Perandus was the first to navigate the Lord's Labyrinth, the first to show that it could be beaten. He was aided immeasurably in this endeavour by his uncle, Cadiro Perandus.

Cadiro Perandus was a master of coin, the minister of finance in the kingdom both before and after his family's ascension. His greed was legendary, for he was a devotee of Prospero, the ancient Azmerian god of the underworld, the earth, and all its boundless treasures.

The Perandus Fall

The Perandus reign was brief, cut short by the Purity Rebellion and the death of Emperor Chitus. However, in the months before the revolt, a steady stream of unremarkable carts and wagons flowed from the capital, bearing a secret cargo to the far reaches of Wraeclast. By the time House Perandus fell, Cadiro had managed to steal the entirety of the kingdom's treasury.

Stolen Treasures

In the wake of the Cataclysm, the locations of the kingdom's stolen treasures, secreted away in caches throughout the land, were lost to record and tale. Of the Perandus family, only Cadiro remains alive, forever sustained by his devotion to Prospero. He wanders the countryside in search of his lost caches, eager to reclaim them and their riches.

Interested in a Bargain?

Anyone lucky enough to uncover one of the lost caches will discover something remarkable: fistfuls of glittering coins, currency of the Eternal Empire. Time has not diminished Cadiro's lust for gold, he will eagerly exchange one of his wares for a price. Cadiro's offerings span nearly everything an exile desires. For enough coins, he may even sell you a map to his family's legacy, the Perandus Mansion.

Treasures of a Fallen Age

The Perandus were an esteemed, wealthy family long before they realized their imperial ambitions. As they gained riches and renown, they steadily acquired ancient and powerful artefacts from Wraeclast's past. Cadiro had these relics stashed in nondescript boxes, crates and vaults to throw off potential thieves. Count yourself lucky if you find one of these caches, but be wary. The guardians will not relinquish their riches easily.

Indebted Guardians

Like many wealthy families of their day, the Perandus family were quick to lend and quicker still to charge interest. They had many debtors. Normally death forgives a debt, but not when a sum is owed to an adherent of Prospero. After the Cataclysm, the deity bound the slain Perandus debtors in eternal servitude, bidding them to forever guard the family's wealth. You will find them near Cadiro's caches, waiting tirelessly for their master's return.

Generous Rewards

In addition to the vast rewards earned from the Perandus Caches and Cadiro himself, you can earn various exclusive microtransactions for completing challenges.

The Perandus leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you receive the Perandus Footprints Effect. At 24, you receive the Perandus Weapon Effect. When you complete your 36th challenge, you receive the Perandus Portal Effect. These microtransactions are exclusively available in this league.

From the 19th challenge onwards and for every third challenge after that, you receive pieces of a Perandus Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Perandus challenges you completed during this league.

Coming on March 4th 2016!

Path of Exile: Ascendancy and the Perandus Challenge League will simultaneously launch at noon on March 4, PST. This is 9pm in the CET timezone and 9am on March 5 in New Zealand.
