Arbitrary Tenets is a new Atlas Keystone Passive Skill.
Flavour Text: “They are unforgivable sinners and fools… We pray each Sacrato. They pray each Kaso. They are absolutely mad!”
Arbitrary Tenets causes Favours at Ritual Altars in your maps to randomly cost between 90% less and 80% more. These cost alterations are retained on deferred Rewards.
As an example, something which costed 1000 Tribute before now has a range of 100 to 1800 Tribute with this Atlas keystone allocated. This averages out to 95% (950 in this case) of the Tribute costs, technically a net benefit overall.
As of version 3.22.0, it is located near the center-left of the Atlas passive skill tree inside the Ritual cluster containing Profitable Prayers and Flexible Dogma.
Rituals are encounters that spawn from Ritual Altars. After activating the Altar, players must defeat the enemies enclosed within the Ritual Circle, gaining Tribute in the process. Players can then spend the earned Tribute to purchase various types of rewards including pre-identified rare items.
Ritual Altars can be randomly encountered while playing through the storyline and have an 8% chance to spawn in any end-game map. The amount of Altars that appear in each instance is either three or four (it was 1 to 4 in the Ritual league). It cannot be found within Heists or in Delve.
Small, moving blood pools will appear under killed enemies that count towards the ritual when activated. Luring faraway monsters into the circle will not add to the ritual encounter.
After completing a ritual, players can click the Altar to display the Favours interface that allows players to select their own rewards, in exchange for Tribute points.
Tip: It makes sense to complete all altars before deciding what to spend tribute on. If you do this then you will have maximum knowledge before making your choices – you will know how many points you have and all visible options.
