Guaranteed Magic Monsters or Higher:

  • When you use this Scarab in your Map Device before running a map, it guarantees that all monster packs within the map area will be at least Magic rarity or higher.

Understanding Monster Rarity:

  • PoE assigns rarities to monsters, typically denoted by their color:
    • White: These are regular monsters, the most common type.
    • Magic (Blue): Magic monsters are slightly tougher than white ones and have a chance to drop Magic items (blue text) and potentially some currency.
    • Rare (Yellow): These are more challenging monsters with a higher chance of dropping Rare items (yellow text) and more valuable currency.
    • Unique (Orange): Unique monsters are the rarest and most challenging. They are guaranteed to drop a Unique item (orange text) specific to that monster.

Impact of the Scarab:

  • Increased Difficulty: By eliminating the presence of White monsters, the Scarab guarantees you’ll encounter Magic monsters (at least) throughout your map. This translates to facing tougher enemies with more health and potentially more dangerous abilities.
  • Enhanced Rewards: Magic monsters and higher rarities have a higher chance of dropping better loot compared to White monsters. You can expect to see an increase in the quality of items and currency throughout your map run.


The PoE Horned Scarab of Bloodlines is a valuable tool for players who are comfortable with a difficulty increase and want to focus on faster character progression through increased Magic item and higher rarity drops. Use this Scarab strategically if you’re looking for a more challenging and potentially more rewarding map experience.
