- all other unique atlas bases drop on the full quadrant, including inner circle

- the map is based on information known fro synthesis (3.6) so things might change

Path of Exile 3.7 Legion Atlas Strategy (POE 3.7 Atlas Mapping Tips)

there are always two main poe atlas strategies that players typically choose to playing the atlas. one, complete everything; two, shape atlas maps by only completing your loved maps. here we will show you the details path of exile 3.7 legion atlas mapping guide and help you find out the best atlas maps to shape or elder beyond your want in path of exile 3.7.

POE 3.7 basic non/un-shaped atlas strategy

Complete everything, supporting and expanding your map pool

this is fairly straightforward and will provide you access to the most content, perfect for the person who just wants to casually push and have fun or the person who wants to get to the guardian bosses at the end of the atlas. if you are new in the game, we do suggest you to choose this strategy, to see the most content and enjoy the game better. this strategy is very simple to carry out. you just need to run maps as you get them and progress through your atlas, then buy maps and complete. you will get more maps since you can collect more bonus for completing every map. but for this, you have to run through the maps you don’t like. without any advanced strategy, it is advisable to use little path of exile currency items and to climb very slowly in the leveling.

white map group (tier 1-5)

- if your character just starts the maps, use orb of transmutation and orb of augmentation for your maps. in case of affixes that are too dangerous, you can still spend orb of alteration to change affixes. keep your unidentified maps aside as well as those with quality.

- once your character is hit with a minimum viable set (maximum elemental resistances and enough life), you can use alchemy orbs directly. if you are comfortable with affixes, you can use your unidentified maps.

yellow map group (tier 6-10)

- continue to use alchemy orbs. take care to know the affixes you can not do, and put aside its maps. once you have 3 of the same type, you can sell them to get one from the


upper tier start using sextants. you can use white sextants (apprentice).

red map group (tier 11-16)

- use map chisels and alchemy orbs, identify and use a orb of binding on magic rarity maps. do the same thing as before for the difficult affixes. use a vaal orb when you do not have the atlas completion bonus yet.

 - after corruption, you may have fallen on unidentified maps, or maps with mods that you can not do (reflection, for example), there are sextants that can give additional benefits or remove the disadvantages of these mods. keep them aside for when you have the appropriate sextants mods.

- if you reach the highest levels (> 13), use vaal orbs after passing the maps in quality and rare rarity. you can also use chaos orb on maps with bad affixes or with only 4 affixes with not enough loot bonuses.

- continue to use sextants. you can use white (apprentice) sextants by having a yellow shaped group map in close to white group maps. also start to overwrite mods of sextants that do not give bonus (quantity or groups of enemies).

- use zana's craft mods, by default the "fortune favors the brave" if you do not aim anything precise.

- remember to add sacrifice fragments: one to three depending on the level and amount on the map.

POE 3.7 atlas shaped maps strategy

focusing some atlas maps beyond your want, obtain high-level and influenced items

this strategy is to get a conflict between the elder and the locked shaper from 10 or 15 maps, then make the maps in loops to try to get an elder or shaped item bases with a level of high item. this will be optimal for experience, but limit you to only running a few maps. maps with linear layouts, good clear speed or high mob density have been marked. players should bear these map types in mind when choosing which maps to shape with shaper’s orbs. remember that these orbs turn a map that it’s applied to into a shaped version that is five tiers higher than the previous version. for any map shaping strategy of a tier x, you want to uncomplete every other map of tier x and every map of tier x+1. that way if a tier x+1 map would have dropped, it has none to choose from, and defaults back to tier x. since you only have one completed (the one you're running the shaping strategy for), it defaults to dropping this one.

to execute this strategy effectively, you need to get know the items you can loot from every atlas map, then go to figure out which atlas maps you should shape or elder for getting the items you want, keep reading, you will find out the answers on our below guide for poe 3.7 legion best map to shape .

Path of Exile 3.7 Legion best maps to shape/elder

which is the best poe 3.7 atlas map to shape and elder in path of exile? what is the best poe 3.7 atlas mapping strategy for you? actually all is beyond your want! if you want to farm the new poe 3.7 divination cards or poe currency, you should focus on the maps with these drops. here’s the poe 3.7 shaping lists we recommend to give you a guideline:

all natural 16s

shaper fragments would be valuable with the necklace being made more rare


15 – desert spring (for absolute monster count – high count = better returns and more xp).

15 – summit (balance of smooth layout and high monster count, boss is a killer though).

13 – shrine, 11 – precinct and 12 – lava lake (divination card and map returns).

13 – tower (divination card)

11 – crimson temple (divination card, if headhunter was made much rarer the life thief may be the best source of soul eater. have not personally seen this card drop so may be wrongly attributing it to this map)


10 – bazaar, 9 – arsenal (each has good monster count, each has a good divination card)

7 – spider forest (premium divination card)


4 – crater

currency/loot optimized

complete all 1-8. 9 – arsenal, 10 – bazaar, 11- all, 12- all, 13 – tower, 14 – all, 15 – all, 16 – all

run towers where possible. when out of towers (may happen at times), take your arsenals and bazaars and run them with zana’s +5 tiers to a map

noted: above tips are the initial early thoughts of the poe 3.7 atlas subject to change if divination cards move, or there are drop rate changes
