[PoE 3.11] Which maps to set as favourite – Harvest Map Guide

With Path of Exile 3.10 patch, new map feature has been introduced – the ability to set 3 favourite maps in each region of the atlas. When selected, Favourite map will drop way more often than ones that are not selected, giving you ability to repeatedly run certain maps for their layout, divination card drops or monster density.
To unlock favourite map slots, you have to:

  • 1st slot – Complete all non-unique maps in the region
  • 2nd slot – Complete all bonus objectives on the non-unique maps in the region
  • 3rd slot – Complete all awakening objectives on the non-unique maps in the region

Let me note, that you will have to also complete hidden maps in the region, ones that only appear when you socket 4 watchstones in the region’s citadel.
After that, select a favourite map by clicking the open slot and then a map on the atlas. Note: you can select the same map multiple times in order to increase its drop rate even more.
In this article, I wanted to share my opinion of best maps to farm for drops, delirium rewards etc.
