The arena is called The Shaper's Realm.

Recommendations

The following is recommended:

  • At least 1 million damage per second

The fight consists of multiple phases. Before the Shaper encounter begins, the player must defeat four side bosses at the nexus. After that a portal opens to the Shaper's arena. The Shaper himself has three phases. At the end of the first and second phases he banishes Zana and the player to a passage while he heals up. The players must traverse the passage and return to the arena to begin the next phase. The Shaper recovers health slowly between phases.

Allocating one of these keystones on your Atlas passive tree ramps up the corresponding boss fight so that it is extremely difficult. Like, really hard. Harder than saying goodbye to Zana hard. Only allocate these keystones if your character is extremely powerful and you know you can handle the challenge. In general, the encounters' rules are modified to be far more punitive and difficult. In return, though, you can earn some very enticing rewards. Each of the uber fights has an additional high-chance reward and a chance of getting a very very rare chase reward. For example, the Uber Maven guarantees an Elevated Sextant if you're able to complete the encounter. Very rarely, you may be able to earn an Awakened Exceptional Support Gem as well such as Empower, Enlighten or Enhance.

These keystones unlock crazy battles that will challenge our most aspiring players who are deep in Path of Exile's endgame. They add a new level of difficulty for those who want to push their builds even farther than they ever have before.
