The Ritual Challenge League

  • Challenge leagues are a great opportunity for a fresh start in a new economy. All of your old characters and items are still present in the Standard and Hardcore leagues, but you're encouraged to join the new leagues, complete challenges and demonstrate your mastery of Path of Exile!
  • In the Ritual Challenge League, Ritual Altars have appeared throughout the world. By slaying the monsters that guard the Ritual Altars, then activating them, you will call more monsters into the Ritual Circle that surrounds it. Slaying those monsters awards you Tribute, which can be spent on rewards from the Altar. Each area has several Rituals, and monsters slain in a previous Ritual in the area will be revived in subsequent Rituals.
  • You can buy Ritual Splinters from completed Rituals which can be combined to create a Ritual Vessel. Using a Ritual Vessel at any completed Ritual Altar will turn it into a Blood-filled Vessel, capturing a record of all the monsters first slain at that Ritual. Blood-filled Vessels can be placed alongside any Map in the Map Device to imbue the Rituals in that area with the captured monsters.
  • Some items are only available from Ritual Altars, and may be very costly to purchase. You can pay part of the Tribute cost for such items to Defer them, causing them to appear again in a later area. You can Defer items multiple times, allowing you to eventually afford expensive items over time.
  • With 3.13.0, there are Standard, Hardcore and Solo Self-Found variations of the Ritual challenge league available. They have the same core mechanics and items. You can create private league versions of these leagues, with mods that make the game harder.
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you will receive the Ritual Weapon Effect. When you reach 24 challenges, you will receive the Ritual Character Effect. At 36 challenges completed you'll receive the Ritualist's Hideout. These microtransactions are only obtainable in this league.
  • From the 19th challenge onwards and for every third challenge after that, you will receive pieces of the Ritual Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Ritual challenges you completed during the league.
