So, we ran a few maps at the weekend - Jim, Barry and myself. We'll be diving straight into maps this week during the evening times in the run-up to Christmas. If you'd like to join us. Hop online, we're usually on from about 8pm GMT in the evenings. Note that you must be at least level 66 to participate.
Maps serve as the endgame content in Path of Exile. Like equipment, they come in magic, rare, and unique qualities and have their own special affixes. Affixes on maps can make them more difficult but can also increase your potential rewards. Maps can also have quality, you can raise its quality by using a Cartographer's ChiselCartographer's Chisel Stack Size: 20Improves the quality of a mapRight click this item then left click a map to apply it. Has greater effect on lower rarity maps. The maximum quality is 20%. Shift click to unstack..
Maps can drop from anything that can drop items of item level 60 or higher. Non-map areas cannot drop maps higher than level 66, as of patch 0.10.8.
You can access this content after completing the quests for Lady Dialla in Act 3 on merciless difficulty. You can then access the Eternal Laboratory where maps can be used.
Note that in some of the pages for specific maps, it is indicated whether the map is indoors or outdoors. The main purpose of this is for predicting the behaviour of the map prefix Labyrinthe (Map is a maze), which has virtually no effect on outdoor maps and generally makes indoor maps much larger.
We’re Chucklefish, a studio working on our first project – an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game called Starbound.
In Starbound, you take on the role of a character who’s just fled from their home planet, only to crash-land on another. From there you’ll embark on a quest to survive,discover, explore and fight your way across an infinite universe.
You’ll encounter procedurally generated creatures and weapons, discover populated villages and abandoned temples. Explore planets dotted with dungeons, eyeball trees and treasure. Make use of over a hundred materials and over one thousand in-game objects to build a sprawling modern metropolis or a sleepy secluded cabin in the woods, and do all of it alone or with friends!
Starbound lets you live out your own story of space exploration, discovery and adventure. Settle down and farm the land, hop from planet to planet claiming resources, or make regular visits to populated settlements, taking on jobs and earning a living. NPCs are scattered about the worlds, offering quests and challenges for those looking for a little extra excitement in their lives.
Traverse the stars with the starmap to find endless procedurally generated planets and creatures. Discover new crops, creatures and weapons, capture monsters to keep as companions and clear dungeons of their loot.
Complete quest lines that let you delve into the greater galactic mysteries! Who created the Glitch? What is Big Ape’s secret? Why are the Hylotl so uptight? From abandoned bunkers to creepy temples, Starbound’s richly detailed universe offers a host of places to investigate and tales to unfold. Follow the story or create your own, experience the game how YOU want to.
As developers, we’ve been inspired by all the games we grew up playing. From isometric 80s classics to Castlevania, Zelda, Metroid. Celebrated platformers like Mario and Sonic, RPGs such as Elder Scrolls and Ultima, and iconic handheld games such as Pokemon. Starbound draws on numerous classic influences, while taking a thoroughly modern approach to crafting, narrative and world-building. It’s an amalgamation of the games we loved as kids, and the games we love now, fully focused on providing the player with an engrossing, fun experience.
Players love to get creative, and with Starbound, we’ve tried to offer as much creative scope as possible. Foraging and crafting provides the player with numerous resources and items to kit themselves out to suit their playing style. Building allows you to create wonderful, expansive worlds to call your own. Fancy a campfire singalong? Just whip out a musical instrument and jam away. Always wanted to camp out in a hostile desert with buddies? Then head off into the wilderness ofmultiplayer, armed only with your wits (and a massive sword). Customise your spaceship to be your home away from home, then journey to an uncharted planet, and lay down the building blocks for a new life.
Video games offer untold scope for adventure and wonder, and with Starbound we hope to provide you with a memorable, exciting experience. We can’t wait for you to explore the universe we’ve created.
We played a 1 hour cut throat race last night, and it was so fun that i thought i'd sum it up using the form of intense poetry. Thanks to Barry, Kat, Jiku, Av and Soz for accompanying me on what was probably the most fun race so far! And Lucht, for providing bear support even though we were too many to group properly.
