Where to put the Atlas passives you get from The Maven?
Echoes of Atlas expansion has been added to the Path of Exile and one of the coolest new features is the ability to choose Atlas Skill tree for each map region. The skill trees give different bonuses and you can target farm your favorite content pretty consistently. Want to farm a lot of sulphite? No problem, just go for Sulphite Infusion in Lex Proxima and get sulphite after each map completion. Loved Perandus league? No problem, we got mini Perandus league in Lex Ejoris. The beautiful part of the skill trees is the fact that whichever way you go, there will always be some profit, so in general, don’t be afraid to mess up and go for the content that you like.
In this guide, we will share with you how we allocated skill trees and which ones we think are the best.
Haewark Hamlet Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – The Groves Call
Harvest, while nerfed, is still the best choice in this region.
4 Points – Nature’s Favour
Gives you better crafting options, so it’s a chance to craft better items.
6 Points – Wild Fruit
Level 4 Harvest crafting options are a few of the strongest crafting options in the game, such as Fracturing items or adding Synthesized implicit mods for your items. It’s a must-have.
8 – 10 Sacred Lands & Paid in Blood
Having more Ritual spawns, tribute, and extra chances to reroll ritual rewards is too good to pass up. Alternatively, you could go for Controlled Corruption & Amplified if you don’t see yourself doing rituals.
Glennach Cairns Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – Monumental
Legion has been rebalanced, and Glennach cairns is the best region to farm legions for loot.
4 Points – High Value Targets
25% chance to have reward for Sergeants is really good, now it’s way more balanced than in previous league, but still amazing.
6 Points – Face to Face
Increased chance for generals is a must have if we go legion route.
8 – 10 Resource Reallocation & Contested Development
With the ability to itemize and sell Alva’s temples, these nodes are extremely powerful this league. With these nodes, you can get a lot of rooms to the max level and you are punished less for switching up your temple.
Tirn's End Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – That Which You Seek
We decided to go the Delirium route – a 10% additional chance to contain Delirium is a solid choice for the first 2 points in the region.
4 Points – The Singular Eternity
There are quite a few non-linear maps in the region, so slower fog dissipation really works wonders.
6 Points – Greater Forces
Great way to boost your delirium rewards in the region.
8 – 10 Trespassers & Exotic Goods
With rewards buffed, these nodes – a must-have for this region.
New Vastir Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – War Supplies
Extra war hoards are great for rewards and chance to get a full emblem.
4 Points – Emblematic
The chance for splinters to drop as Emblems instead is absolutely amazing.
6 Points – Total Anarchy
10% chance to spawn 20 Rogue Exiles is really good for 2 points.
8 – 10 Abyssal Army & Votive Hoard
You could go for Niko here, but we thought we’d leave the Lex Proxima region for sulphite farming, so we went for Abyss instead. These 2 nodes give more experience, spawn more monsters, and adds a chance to get rare items with abyssal sockets on them. Abyssal sockets were previously hard to get on rares, so if your build could spare a few skill gems, an abyssal socket is an extremely strong choice on the item.
Lex Ejoris Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – Prospero’s Promise
Since we were big fans of the Perandus league, we decided to go in this direction. Node adds mini Perandus league to the maps in the region by guaranteeing one Perandus chest.
4 Points – Friend of The Family
Boosting Cadiro’s rewards has been a solid choice for my playthrough. While nerfed a bit in 3.14, it’s still amazing and in my opinion, a must have.
6 Points – Pathological
Maps with random delirium orbs on them are always good.
8 – 10 Compulsive Hoarder & Escaped Experiment
Compulsive hoarder is a good choice to further boost delirium rewards. With the last 2 points, Escaped experiment is a good choice if your build can handle metamorphs.
Lex Proxima Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – Rich Veins
We believe this is the best region to farm Sulphite so we specialized in that as soon as possible.
4 Points – Sulphite Infusion
Guaranteed Sulphite after each map is amazing, this is a no-brainer.
6 Points – Gatekeepers
With Harvest nerfed and breachstones buffed, breach nodes in the region look really good, so we will be picking up these.
8 – 10 Withing Their Grasp & Invading Force
Double splinters & a chance to get Breachstone drops as well as increased monster density is definitely worth it.
Valdo's Rest Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – Ominous Arrival
Extra Harbinger in areas is pretty nice for 2 points.
4 Points – Diplomatic Escort
While these nodes are nerfed, they are still worth taking.
6 Points – Intrinsic Darkness
An additional chance to spawn a Metamorph is a good choice here.
8 – 10 High Yield & Repeated Experiment
With these nodes we get to assemble an additional Metamorph, plus get more samples to build our own in Tane’s Lab.
Lira Arthain Atlas Skill Tree
2 Points – Spores in The Wind
These 2 points allow us to farm maps with guaranteed blight encounter, which is amazing.
4 Points – Epidemiology
A larger chance to get Blighted maps is awesome because they pay very well. Getting them with anointment is great as well.
6 – 8 Points – Animal Companion & Natural Selection
Bestiary is actually a really solid choice when you pick up both nodes.
10 Points – Probing for Weakness
10% extra chance to spawn breaches is a solid choice for the last nodes.
2 Points – Neural Pathways
Extra chance to get Synthesis maps is a must-have since they offer great rewards.
4 Points – Vivid Memories
Synthesized item drops can be amazingly powerful, so we picked that.
6 Points – Synthetic Source
Further boosting Synthesized unique items with 3 implicit mods.
8-10 Points – Depends on what content you are focusing on
Last 4 points you should put in the nodes that align with the content you are focusing on. We went for Master of The Atlas & Paths not taken since it synergizes well with Synthesis, making it more common through Zana’s missions.
