PoE Complete Grand Heist Guide

Blueprints are used to perform Grand Heists. They work like Contracts, but additional details can be revealed to open up new wings and reward rooms. They contain rewards pertaining to experimented items.

1. Grand Heist Reveals

A Blueprint can be taken to the following NPCs to inspect its layout. Initially, only one wing is revealed and some of the reward rooms and escape points will be locked. You can use one Blueprint Reveal and a payment of Rogue’s Markers to reveal details of it.

NPC Reveal Price Gain more Blueprint Reveal chances
Whakano, the Barber no discount Complete more Contracts(Upon completing a Contract, you will gain one Blueprint Reveal. )
Niles, the Interrogator 10% discount Complete more Contracts with Niles
Gianna, Master of Disguise 20% to 40% discount Complete more Contracts with Gianna

A revealed Blueprint will indicate which rewards are available from Curio Displays(Grand Heist reward rooms) but you won’t be able to tell what rewards are in chests, lockers and side-rooms along the way. Any unrevealed wings or rooms will not spawn when performing the Grand Heist.

1.1 Reveal Room

You can reveal a single room or multiple rooms at the cost of Marker currency items. By doing it, You can find what items are in the room. Then, you can decide whether it worth looting.

1.2 Reveal Wing

You can reveal a Wing or the entire Wing at the cost of Marker currency items. Normally, it contains an escape route and other valuable items details.

1.3 How much of a Blueprint do you have to reveal before you can run a Grand Heist?

You can completely skip revealing anything on the Blueprint and jump right to locking in which NPCs you’ll take, but you’ll miss out on a lot of the value of the Blueprint in doing so. You can unlock as much as you want or can afford. The more you unlock, the more you’ll reap from your Grand Heist.

2.4 How often will I complete a Heist or Grand Heist?

You’ll have access to one Contract per area on average but the amount you get is affected by standard drop multipliers. You can get many per area in well-rolled maps. You’ll access a Blueprint for a Grand Heist approximately once per act or around every 12 maps. It’s a similar level of content access to Incursions and The Temple of Atzoatl, except you can wait and run them when you feel like it without losing progress.


2.5 Grand Heist Tips

  • Since it is difficult to escape from a Grand Heist, it is suggested to get a Blueprint firstly, next upgrade your character, then complete the blueprint. I always prepare a Grand Heist when my character level is at least five levels higher than the blueprint’s area level.
  • If you didn’t manage to get the Heist Target from contracts, you won’t gather intel for revealing portions of Grand Heists.
  • Markers are essential for paying Rogues to assist you with Heists, and to reveal details of a Blueprint for Grand Heists.
  • In a Grand Heist you can have up to three Rogues per wing. If you pay to reveal elements of a Blueprint, you’ll typically have several wings available to run.

3. Grand Heist Rewards

Grand Heists offer exclusive new rewards such as Weapon and Body Armour Enchantments, Heist Trinkets, Alternate-quality Gems and Replica Unique Items.

What rewards you’ll get before you run a Grand Heist? A revealed Blueprint will indicate which rewards are available from Curio Displays but you won’t be able to tell what rewards are in chests, lockers and side-rooms along the way.

3.1 Heist Trinkets

One of the exclusive rewards you’ll be able to steal from Grand Heists are Trinkets, which go in their own new equipment slot. These magical items influence what rewards you’ll find from future Heists you run. Some of their modifiers affect the items dropped by enemies and chests, while others modify the rewards you could obtain from a Heist’s special reward chests.

3.2 Alternate Quality Gems

Alternate Quality Gems come from Grand Heist reward rooms and provide even more depth for existing Skill and Support Gems. Each existing Path of Exile gem has up to three Alternate Quality versions which grant different quality bonuses than the original gems. Some simply increase the power of the gem while others entirely change which builds most benefit from the gem.

3.3 Replica Uniques Items

Other rewards you can claim from Grand Heists are Replica Unique Items. Replica Unique items result from attempts to re-create unique items of legend, where the end product has a few crucial differences. They’re often appropriate for entirely different character builds than the original item.

Experimented Base Types are a variety of new item base types that have exotic properties that differ from their core-game counterparts.
