PoE Abyss Scarab of Edifice

The Abyss Scarab of Edifice in Path of Exile is a real scarab that alters Abyss encounters within a map. Here’s a breakdown of its effects:

Deeper and More Rewarding Abysses:

  • Increased Depth: When you use this scarab in a map, any Abyss you encounter that doesn’t lead to the Abyssal Depths (the deepest level) will be significantly deeper. This translates to potentially tougher monsters and the chance for higher tier rewards.
  • Stygian Spire Guarantee: Abysses that would normally just be dead ends (not leading deeper) are now guaranteed to become Stygian Spires. Stygian Spires are special mini-Dungeons within the Abyss that offer more challenging monster encounters and the potential for valuable rewards.

Challenging Encounters:

  • Tougher Monsters: Deeper Abysses inherently house stronger monsters. With the increased depth from the scarab, be prepared for a more challenging fight.
  • Strategic Approach: The additional challenge might necessitate adjusting your gameplay approach for Abyss encounters. Consider using appropriate skills and gear to handle the tougher enemies.

Who should use it?

  • Experienced Players: This scarab is ideal for players with well-built characters who can handle the increased difficulty of deeper Abysses.
  • Targeted Farming: If you’re specifically looking for high-tier rewards from Abysses, such as unique items or Abyss jewels, the increased depth offered by this scarab can improve your chances of finding them.
  • Enjoy the Challenge: Players who relish challenging content and want to push themselves in Abyss encounters might enjoy the strategic depth and tougher enemies this scarab introduces.


  • Abyss Scarab of Emptiness: This scarab focuses on reducing the number of monsters within the Abyss but increases the chance of encountering Liches, powerful Abyss rares with valuable drops.
  • Other Scarabs: Consider using scarabs focused on different mechanics depending on your needs. For example, Breach or Legion scarabs offer encounters with alternative content and loot pools.

Things to Consider:

  • Gear and Build: Ensure your character has appropriate gear and skills to tackle the tougher monsters in deeper Abysses.
  • Map Selection: Choose a map with a good layout for Abyss encounters, allowing you to navigate the deeper Abysses efficiently.


The Abyss Scarab of Edifice adds a layer of depth and potential for high-tier rewards to your Abyss encounters. Use it strategically based on your character’s strength, desired loot, and enjoyment of challenging content.
