Since the words limitation.

If you missed it, well, you can check out the full Q&A with ZiggyD and Chris below.

 

The Very First One That We'd Like To Talk About Is: 

 

The Maven & Her Challenges:

WHAT .: 01: We'd like to know how does the Maven's gameplay progression work? And does it occur alongside the Watchstone / Sirus progression?

ANS .: 01: Thanks for asking, well, the Maven's progression is not tied to Watchstone / Sirus progression. You should aware that after your first encounter with the Maven, you can call her to witness map boss kills using her beacon on the map device. And due to her presense makes the boss in-game more difficult.

Sometimes, you will be invited to the Maven's arena to fight an crazy increasing number of bosses in the arena (for instance: 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10). ).And after the 10 boss fight, if you are lucky and still survived, you might have the chance to fight the Maven herself.

Here is the point, that the progression is on a per region basis with each a successful fight in the Maven's arena will award you two passive points and that points could be allocated to the Atlas Tree for that region.

QUE .: 02: According to what we see that the Maven seems like the expansion to the Sirus and Conquerors endgame in a similar fashion to how the Elder was an expansion to the Shaper endgame. And our question is can we expect that Maven's story to be linked to the Sirus arc or Maven's story tends to be more independent?

ANS .: 02: Well, the storyline of Maven just exists in parallel with the Conqueror's storyline.Lorewise, the Maven is an Eldritch entity, and to some extent, that is more of a continuation of the Elder storyline, which is, of course, separate from Sirus and the Elderslayers.

WHAT.: 03: How do progression and rewards work for The Maven in Path of Exile party play?

ANS.: 03: My answer is, if you invite the Maven to see a boss fight and finish that fight with some other members of your party, they will also be counted as having completed that fight. Moreover, you could also take on the bosses with a party simultaneously, however, the success of that fight is awarded to the instance owner.

WHAT: 04: Within the Maven's arena fights, how will the boss fights be scaled in difficulty?

ANS .: 04: Hmm ... the very first invitations are task items to progress through the increasing number of bosses you are right now fighting in her arena. And once you have first completed the 10 boss fight, then you will have the opportunity to receive invitation items which can have mods and are craftable, letting you scale the difficulty of that fight. Unfortunately, having duplicates of the same boss in the Maven arena is strictly forbidden, and the bosses are scaled to a fixed monster level just based on the number you're fighting at once.

WHAT .: 05: Can the Maven witness unique map bosses in PoE: Echoes Of The Atlas?

ANS .: 05: Nope.

WHAT .: 06: How will bosses with more complicated attacks, for example, Konley the Unrepentant, Rigwald's Wolf Barrage, Shock and Horror, work in that arena?

ANS .: 06: Generally speaking, boss skills that are related to that boss's arena have generally been adjusted to make sense in the context of the Maven's challenges rather than just being removed completely. And exactly how this was done was just based on the specific conditions.

WHAT .: 07: Does the tier of the map boss influence the captured boss, for instance, how Watchstones alter tiers of maps?

ANS .: 07: The Maven's challenges have relatively fixed monster levels, therefore, the tier of the map doesn't straight-forwardly impact the level of the map boss when you fight it once again.More difficult Maven challenges do also require that you need to capture bosses in much higher-tier maps though.

WHAT: 08:

ANS .: 08: Yes, totes.

WHAT .: 09: How are bosses captured exactly for use in The Maven's Challenge?

ANS .: 09: When you enter a map, that means you can click the Maven's Beacon on the map device to summon her and then to witness your fight. If you win in that fight, this boss will automatically be counted as witnessed. Once The Maven has witnessed enough boss fights in that area, an Path of Exile item will drop that lets you travel to her arena to fight those bosses once again.

QUE .: 10: News says that yesterday's reveal mentioned The Maven is the “first” - and is this scheduled as an expandable system?

ANS .: 10: The Eldritch entities have noticed that the Elder now is missing. The Maven is the first one to come searching us but she probably does not be last.

WHAT .: 11: How does the Maven interact with twinned maps in Path of Exile?

ANS .: 11: Once defeating both bosses, Maven will add only one copy to her challenge.

WHAT .: 12: What happens if you die in The Maven's Challenge? Can you re-enter the arena?

QUE .: 12: You should know that it's opened from the Map Device and there are six portals just like normal. You still can re-enter if you have enough portals left.

The Second One That We'd Like To Talk About Is:

Atlas Passive Trees:

WHAT .: 01: In Path of Exile: Echoes Of The Atlas, are those trees specific to each region of the atlas?

ANS .: 01: Yep, and each region has its own fixed tree, and only applies its bonuses to maps within that region. You can separately earn passive points for each tree. But, Atlas respec points (which come from an Orb) are not a specific region.

QUE .: 02: Since Atlas Passive Trees being specific to each region, does that mean, for instance, you would only find Beyond in the Lex Proxima tree and no other areas?

ANS .: 02: Just like I have already stated above, that each Atlas tree is unique. But, some mechanics appear in multiple regions' trees.

WHAT .: 03: At what stage will we unlock Atlas regions? Around Awakener Level 8 or so?

ANS .: 03: As a matter of fact, Awakener Level 8 is a great estimate for when you will be able to unlock all passives in all regions. You will be able to unlock a full region tree for just a single region well before that.

QUE .: 04: It seems like a substantial step up in complexity with craftable Watchstones and Atlas Passive Trees alongside the current Watchstone progression systems, and our question is how you feel the average or much newer gamers deal with the current Atlas and will handle this ?

ANS .: 04: In this latest expansion, the craftable Watchstones are optional content that will do not lock your progression and they are introduced well into the endgame.And a lot of players that want to maximize their Watchstone bonuses will have a pretty reasonable understanding of the mechanic by the time craftable variants are introduced. All in all, both Atlas Passive Trees and craftable Watchstones are also permanent features that certainly do not require continual upkeep or time investment.

WHAT .: 05: Does Zana's map device crafting options still exist in Path of Exile?

ANS .: 05: Yes, totally, they work as they always have. The set of Zana mods available during patch 3.13 now has already released.

QUE .: 06: Do the mechanics modified by Atlas Passive Trees still appear randomly, or could they only spawn by just using the trees?

ANS .: 06: Well, they still spawn randomly in any map, just as the very same rates as they previously did.

WHAT .: 07: How difficult is it to respec the Atlas Passive Trees? Is it something players would need to adjust frequently or just leave intact most of the time?

ANS .: 07: There is a PoE currency item  that will allow you to respec your atlas passives. And about how often you want to change your passives is totally up to the player and what they determine to be profitable.

WHAT .: 08: How do you acquire Atlas respec points?

ANS .: 08: A brand new currency item will grant them. And that item will drop randomly, however, there are also more deterministic ways of acquiring them which you might discover while playing.

The Third One That We'd Like To Talk About Is:

Ritual League In Path of Exile:

QUE .: 01: Who gets the rewards in Ritual League when playing in a party?

ANS .: 01: All the instance owners get to choose the rewards.

WHAT .: 02: Does party members could view the Favors window (where you select your rewards)?

ANS .: 02: Yes, totally.

QUE .: 03: And what will happen when two people are in an area with a Ritual while the other one is not in the Ritual Circle?

ANS .: 03: All gamers must be within the Ritual Circle once the Ritual starts to participate in it.

WHAT .: 04: Can you lose access to the rewards if you have already deferred?

ANS .: 04: If a deferred reward comes up once again in a later area, well, you should either buy it or defer it once again. And if you do not defer it in time, it doesn't completely vanish immediately, however, it does recover some of its original cost. If you let it get all the way back to its beginning value, then it will stop reappearing for you.

WHAT .: 05: Could you defer more than just one Ritual item?

ANS .: 05: Yes, of course.

WHAT .: 06: Do you guys have a plan to pull monsters to the Ritual sites?

ANS .: 06: Nope, a Ritual will spawn automatically near monsters and will also spawn extra monsters around the altar. First of all, you must clear these monsters before you can officially start the Ritual.After you activate the altar, you have to kill the monsters one more time while you are also fighting against the effects of the ritual. And each subsequent ritual in a region will include the previously-fought monsters as part of the ritual encounter to make them progressively more difficult to finish. And about your question, I can say that pull other monsters into the Ritual site will not cause them to be added to the Ritual. And that's just in vain.

WHAT .: 07: In Path of Exile, do Ritual vessels apply the captured monsters to all Ritual sites in a brand new map? Then, can you use a vessel to capture those monsters once again plus the new monsters from the map… stacking vessels again and again?

ANS .: 07: All you can do is you can only use Ritual Vessels in a map that does not have a Vessel available currently.

QUE .: 08: Will there be any Sextant modules that affect the number of Ritual points you get whenever the Ritual Mechanic spawns on the map?

ANS .: 08: As you can see, there are no Ritual-specific sextant modules. But, mods that certainly increase the number of monsters in a map will influence how many monsters you encounter in a Ritual.

WHAT .: 09: Can you defer a Path of Exile item more than once?

ANS .: 09: Yes. QUE .

: 10: Do Path of Exile items from the Favors window use the brand new high-quality Rare item generation system?

ANS .: 10: Well, how should I say, some Favors window will use the smart loot generation system, however, it just relies on the type of item. There's quite a variety of stuff offered in-game, so it only makes sense on some.

WHAT .: 11: Do any Ritual-specific rewards, for example, the new uniques or bases, drop from monsters during Rituals, or are they only just purchasable with Tribute?

ANS .: 11: All of the new rewards introduced in Ritual are just purchasable with Tribute and do not drop from monsters in a Ritual encounter.

WHAT .: 12: Do the set of Favors offered to persist throughout a region, or do they change between Rituals?

ANS .: 12: All items as you can see, appear in the first Favors window, but some are shrouded initially.These more expensive and more advanced items will be unlocked after you complete later Rituals in an area.

QUE .: 13: According to the instruction book, the Ritual Vessels capture monsters from a ritual site to use in later maps. Is this just an 'instead' of doing the Ritual, or just afterward with nothing lost?

ANS .: 13: After you finish Ritual, you have the opportunity to 'capture' its monsters by using a Vessel which can be used on a map to enhance your challenge and rewards.

QUE .: 14: Are there always three Rituals per zone, or does the number of Rituals per zone increase as you progress through the story?

ANS .: 14: Well, the number of Ritual Altars in a region does scale slightly as you progress forward, with a current cap of just 4 Altars.

QUE .: 15: Is there an indicator in the Favors window that shows when something has been deferred from a previous region?

ANS .: 15: Yep.

WHAT .: 16: When you are in a Ritual, can you 'fail'?

ANS .: 16: And if all players within the Ritual already dead or have already left, then it fails. And that means you can come back and spend any Tribute you ever did and earn before it failed.

WHAT .: 17: Can you leave a Ritual before the fight is officially over?

ANS .: 17: Of course you can, you can portal out or just close the game client at any time.

WHAT .: 18: How does the barrier around the Ritual Circle enforced?

ANS .: 18: You just cannot enter or exit it. However, that does not hurt you at all.

The Third One That We'd Like To Talk About Is:

Endgame Rewards In Path of Exile:

QUE .: 01: Is there a limitation to the number of craftable Watchstones you can use at once?

ANS .: 01: In this latest league, you can replace all possible Watchstones with just craftable Watchstones. Please NOTE that each Watchstone is just locked to a specific Atlas region. And that will be indicated in the Watchstone's name. That idea behind scene is to prevent optimal gameplay involving constant shuffling of Watchstones around your atlas.

WHAT .: 02: Can I use multiple of the exact same type of craftable Watchstone in the same area at once?

ANS .: 02: Yep, and the effects of their modules will stack.

QUE .: 03: And how does the Path of Exile Maven's Orb interact with items that have various influence types?

ANS .: 03: As a matter of fact, it does not distinguish between different influence types in any method. Let me give you a for instance, if you use it on an item with three Shaper modifiers and three Redeemer modifiers, it will still just pick one modifier to remove and one to upgrade randomly.

WHAT .: 04: What kind of items can the Maven's Orb be used on in PoE?

ANS .: 04: Any influenced helmet, boots, gloves, or body armor, with at least two influence modifiers. And those legacy modifiers or modifiers that could not be changed (for example; suffixes on an item with the “Suffixes can't be changed” modifier) ​​are just not valid.

QUE .: 05: How do I track which Watchstones and Atlas Passive Trees are affecting my maps?

ANS .: 05: Well, when you put a map into the map device, there pops-up a window that says which stats are being applied to it by the Atlas Passive Trees and Watchstones.

WHAT .: 06: Can you find a craftable Watchstone before you collect all normal Watchstones?

ANS .: 06: There exists an opportunity that you can find and use craftable Watchstones before you receive your 32 Conquerors' Watchstones; however, you do probably not find many yourself before you receive the finished set of Conquerors' Watchstones.

WHAT .: 07: What kind of mods exactly can the Maven's Orb upgrade?

ANS .: 07: It could upgrade any influence-specific mod.As you can see, a tier 3 mod will be replaced with its tier 2 version, for instance, if it selects a tier 1 mod to upgrade, it will replace it with a brand new "elevated" mod that has even much stronger effects.

WHAT .: 08: Do craftable Watchstones contribute to Awakener level?

ANS .: 08: Yes, totally.

WHAT .: 09: Are craftable Watchstones tradeable in Path of Exile?

ANS .: 09: Yes.

WHAT . : 10: And roughly how rare is the Maven's Orb?

ANS .: 10: Quite similar to the Awakener's Orb.

WHAT .: 11: Can elevated modules be transferred with an Awakener's Orb?

ANS .: 11: Yep.

WHAT .: 12: Do craftable Watchstones ever expire or need replacing?

ANS .: 12: Nope.
