In Path of Exile: Crucible, we're raising the area levels of Breachstones to a much higher baseline level - 81 for elemental ones, 82 for physical and 83 for chaos. Now that the regular Breachstones are much higher level. We have retired Charged, Enriched and Pure Breachstones. They will be converted to regular ones.
| Esh’s Flawless Breachstone
|| Blessing of Esh
Breach Blessings can now be used to upgrade a regular Breachstone into the Flawless version of that Breachstone. Breach Blessings are now rarer as a result.
Place a Esh’s Breachstone in a map device to open the Esh’s Domain(level 81). The Esh’s Domain area has a single breach at the beginning. When you touch it a countdown starts at 25 seconds and runs down until you come close to the arena of the Breachlord Esh. The countdown goes up by 1 second per kill.
Esh, Forked Thought is the Breachlord in Esh’s Domain. The following items can be dropped from him:
|The Encroaching Darkness||1|
|Blessing of Esh||1|
|Voice of the Storm||40|
|Hand of Thought and Motion||22|
Additionally, there is a chance for him to also drop a Blessing of Esh which can be used to upgrade his unique items:
|Esh’s Visage||1x Blessing of Esh
1x Esh’s Mirror
|Choir of the Storm||1x Blessing of Esh
1x Voice of the Storm
|Hand of Wisdom and Action||1x Blessing of Esh
1x Hand of Thought and Motion
Since the breaches can spawn a very large number of monsters that hit hard is advisable to be cautious when opening breaches; death can come quickly and without warning.
Characters that have high survivability, high mobility, high damage output as well as good area clearing ability are best at effectively clearing breaches.

The drop level of Splinters of Esh is 1 and can be dropped by Breach monsters or Clasped Hands within breaches. 100 Splinters of the same type can be combined into a Esh’s Breachstone.
There is currently an issue with the currency tab; if you remove a stack of 100 splinters they will not upgrade to a Breachstone. In order to fix it, remove a single splinter and put it back on the stack.
Breaches are timed monster-spawning portals. They have about a 10% chance to appear in any map area. The drop level of Esh’s Breachstone is 70.
