Path of Exile: Lake of Kalandra

You may recognise Kalandra from the infamous Mirror of Kalandra, Path of Exile's most valuable item. The Lake of Kalandra expansion explores the identity of this iconic character and allows you a taste of her power.

Our August expansion contains the Kalandra challenge league, improvements to the Atlas endgame, four new gems, 14 new unique items, 100+ buffed existing uniques, revamps to Harvest, Beyond and Archnemesis, a variety of balance changes and much more!

Reflections of Wraeclast

In the Kalandra Challenge League, you'll travel to the mirrored lake that granted Kalandra her powers of duplication. The lake manifests reflections of Wraeclast itself, which emerge from its misty surface as you approach. Fight through these dangerous encounters to uncover Kalandra's mysteries and earn true power.

Influence the Lake

As you travel throughout Wraeclast, you'll occasionally discover a Mirrored Tablet. Build up this Tablet by placing reflections of dangerous encounters at specific locations. Be careful though, some of these reflections contain immense challenges.

Once you have assigned a reflection to every empty location on your Tablet, you may open a portal to the Lake of Kalandra, which will manifest your creation for you to experience.

Control your Destiny

The farther away from the Lake's entrance an encounter is, the greater its difficulty and rewards are. You'll occasionally be offered choices to customise your Mirrored Tablet by swapping the layout around, perfecting your set of encounters and their rewards.

As you progress through the league, you'll unlock special abilities to skip, reroll and exile choices you are offered, letting you refine your Tablets more efficiently. In the endgame, you'll also be able to itemise your completed Tablets to save them for later or trade them away.

Reflect Rare Jewellery

Alongside rewards from each encounter, the Lake can manifest new ways to create rare items. The Reflecting Mist will create a pair of rings or amulets, exact reflections of one other. On one item, half the properties are magnified in intensity, with the other half negated to hinder you. The other item has the opposite set of mods negated. You may only pick one of these reflections to take with you.

In the league's late endgame, you may bring your own rings and amulets to the Mist. It will magnify, distort and reflect them in a similar way, providing access to previously-unattainable power on rare items.

Experience Atlas Memories

Atlas Memories offer a way to explore endgame content and earn very valuable rewards without having to specialise your Atlas Tree for it. In high-level maps, you'll very rarely find a Memory item, which represents a set of memories that Alva, Niko, Einhar or Kirac has. They will provide a sequence of maps for you to explore as you relive the events of their past. These highly challenging and rewarding Memories can either be applied to your Atlas or traded to other players.

Harness New Gems

This expansion introduces three new skill gems and one new support gem. Three of these are themed around lightning damage and shock.

Equip Exceptional Power

In this expansion, we've added 14 new unique items including a league-exclusive ring, a new pinnacle boss reward, a supporter unique, six new Grand Spectrum jewels and even some levelling uniques. We've also improved over 100 unique items, including both levelling uniques and endgame ones. Finding a unique item is now more likely to be an exciting moment, especially during the campaign.

We're introducing another unique map, The Tower of Ordeals. In this map, you may challenge the Trialmaster and potentially earn unique items from the Ultimatum league. You can create this map by completing endgame Vaal content.

Explore Modernised Leagues

We've overhauled rare and magic monsters throughout Path of Exile, revisited the difficulty and rewards of Archnemesis mods, revamped Beyond and have made large changes to Harvest.

Past league content now spawns a more consistent and less overwhelming quantity of rare monsters. Defeating monsters with multiple Archnemesis mods is now far more rewarding. Powerful monster mods now convert your item drops in a way that stacks with rewards from other mods and player item rarity or quantity bonuses. The Beyond league has been updated with the monsters and bosses from Scourge, and has been given a balance revamp. Harvest crafting has been overhauled to use a tradeable currency, and can now be done in your own time, at the horticrafting station in your hideout.

Master new Balance Changes

We've made many changes to Path of Exile's balance, including an overhaul of the Trickster Ascendancy Class and Minion Itemisation. We've reworked the Trickster Ascendancy, with a focus on establishing thematically-appropriate defences and ways to manipulate speed. Check out its new Ascendancy skills in the screenshots on this panel.

With plenty of new itemisation opportunities, minion builds are now as rewarded for finding good items as other archetypes are. There are several new minion-focused base types that players can find and craft to improve the damage and survivability of their minions. Check out the patch notes for more information about these and other changes.
