PoE Abyss Scarab

The basic Abyss Scarab in Path of Exile is a straightforward and common scarab that increases the number of Abyss encounters you'll have in a map. Here's a breakdown of its effect:

More Abysses, More Chances:

  • One Additional Abyss: Using this scarab in any map guarantees the spawn of one extra Abyss throughout the area. This increases your opportunities to encounter Abysses and interact with their unique mechanics.

Unlocking Abyss Rewards:

  • Currency Shards: Abysses have a chance to contain chests that drop various currency shards, including Ancient Orbs, Chaos Orbs, Regal Orbs, and even Exalted Orbs. With more Abysses, the potential for acquiring valuable currency increases.
  • Unique Items: Abysses can also house special monsters that drop unique items specific to the Abyss. These can be valuable additions to your collection or for trading with other players.
  • Abyssal Depths and Lich encounters: Deeper Abysses, indicated by a swirling red portal, can lead to the Abyssal Depths, a challenging optional zone with powerful enemies and potentially high-tier rewards. Additionally, some Abysses might house Liches, which are powerful Abyss rares that can drop valuable items. With more Abysses, the chance of encountering these features also increases.

Who should use it?

  • New Players: This scarab is a great choice for beginners who want to familiarize themselves with Abyss mechanics and potentially acquire Abyss-specific rewards.
  • Casual Abyss Exploration: If you casually enjoy encountering Abysses during your map runs and want to see more of them, this scarab is a simple way to increase their frequency.
  • Targeted Abyss Farming (with other scarabs): The basic Abyss Scarab can be a solid foundation when combined with other Abyss scarabs. For example, using it alongside an Abyss Scarab of Edifice (increases depth) or Emptiness (boosts Lich chance) can create a more targeted Abyss farming strategy.


  • 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.
  • Map Mods: Specific map mods like "Abysses Contain More Creeping Vines" or "Increased Enemy Density" can alter the difficulty and rewards of Abyss encounters.


The Abyss Scarab is a versatile tool for incorporating more Abysses into your Path of Exile experience. Use it strategically based on your desired level of challenge, preferred loot, and overall enjoyment of this mechanic.
