You can't have a shadow without some light. Explore the paradox that has captured mankind's attention for millennia in the Polaris Mystery Box which contains 38 new Black and White cosmetics effects. Pick a side, or mix and match these stunning microtransactions!
Each Mystery Box costs 30 points and guarantees one microtransaction with value equal to or greater than that of the box. Many of these mystery box cosmetics can be combined to create a blended version of the two designs for even deeper character customisation. The possible outcomes from your mystery box range in value from 30 points all the way up to 320 points!
The average reward is worth 110 points, which is more than three times the cost of the box. Check out the full trailer to see what's available!
What's the Deal?We've listed some handy information below, including the rarity of each microtransaction and the price that it will be available for in the store. Every microtransaction in this mystery box will be available in the store roughly one month after the Metamorph League ends.
The microtransactions are grouped into three rarities: Common, Uncommon and Rare. The microtransactions within each rarity are equally likely. Here are the odds of receiving a microtransaction from each rarity:
What's in the Polaris Mystery Box?
Combining your RewardsMany of the microtransactions in this Mystery Box can be combined. For example, if you receive both the Black and White Body Armours from their respective armour sets, you can combine these to receive the blended Polaris Body Armour.
To combine your microtransactions, press "M" to visit your microtransaction stash, find the item you want to combine and click the small gold symbol in the top right of the icon. This will take you to the combining screen shown below.
Please note that this is a permanent process and they cannot be separated once combined. If the microtransaction you're looking at doesn't have the gold symbol this means you either need to acquire the other half of the pair or it's not possible to combine it with another microtransaction.
The microtransactions that can be combined are the Armour Set Pieces, Cloaks, Wings, Portals, Alternative Helmet Skins and Footprints.
These microtransactions will also be available in the store approximately one month after the Metamorph League ends. You'll still be able to get them by combining Black and White microtransactions or through direct purchase. Their purchase price will be twice the original microtransaction. For example, the blended Polaris Footprints will cost 160 points which is the equivalent of purchasing the individual Black and White Footprints for 80 points each.

How to open your Mystery BoxesAfter purchasing some Polaris Mystery Boxes, you can find them in the Consumable section of your microtransaction stash in-game waiting to be unwrapped.
Note that these Mystery Boxes have random outcomes. Some items are rarer than others (as listed above). You are guaranteed to get an item that is worth at least what you paid for it (30 points) and it's statistically more likely that you'll receive something of higher value.
Outside of microtransaction value, there are no guaranteed outcomes. Duplicate items are possible.
Many thanks to everyone who has purchased a Mystery Box at any point in time. They've become a huge driving force in our ability to continue to create frequent updates like Path of Exile: Conquerors of the Atlas! Thank you so much for your continued support.
