How To Run And Clear Path Of Exile Maps

According to the fans, Path of Exile is the worthy successor of Diablo 2. It is a hardcore Hack'n Slash, which offers a great complexity in the evolution of its character.

Mapping can be a controversial philosophy. The fact is, many players may not know how to start mapping, or how to run a map. Don't be panic, the following post will tell you some tips.


You should not doing the Graveyard or Dungeon maps initially as the bosses are both very powerful. The best map for beginners is probably Beach as it has a relatively easy boss and is open and linear.

Maps are drops. If you don't already have one you'll get a rare one when you complete the game on merciless. From our experience, it seems like the player that creates the portals using their own map, is also predisposed to getting most of the maps dropped in that game. Maps are always permanently allocated.

Hopefully after clearing your first map you have found some more maps. Be aware that sometimes you will have a bad streak of maps where no other maps drop. This is expected as other times a single map instance will drop lots of maps. The aim of mapping is to find maps of higher level tiers.

To run a map, the player enters the laboratory and throws their map into the Map Device. The result is six portals into the map world, and each portal can only be used once, which means only six trips back and forth can be taken. This also ensures players cannot engage in too many “recharge” runs back to town if they are too weak to handle the bosses of the map.

Maps start at Level 66 and currently go to level 77. They are custom drops which can only be found in Merciless difficulty. All initial map drops are only within 2 levels of the current area you are in. The only exception is to initial 66 map drops which can drop in areas under level 64. This means locations like the Docks can drop level 66 maps (even though it’s a 62 area).

In order to find higher level maps, they must drop within the map runs. Normal mobs drop within their level, magic mobs drop within a +1 range and rare/boss mobs drop within a +2 range. This means a rare mob in a level 66 map can drop a level 68 map. Within the 68 map another rare could drop a level 70 map. This is how players progress into the more difficult maps.

Just like PoE items, players can find and manipulate maps to be magic, rare and unique quality levels. Maps can feature up to six modifiers which define the overall item drop quantity bonus. The harder the map, the more loot, and the additional chance even more maps will drop. Most high-level players prefer to do maps with a group because there’s more drops and it’s just more fun.
