The Necropolis Challenge League Guide

  • 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 Necropolis Challenge League you will encounter Undertaker Arimor, a man collecting the scattered spirits of the Eternal Empire for a mysterious purpose. These spirits have begun to haunt the monsters of Wraeclast, unleashing their ancient fury and sorrow onto the world.
  • The Undertaker bestows you with the Lantern of Arimor, a powerful family heirloom which illuminates the spirits haunting monsters throughout Wraeclast. With it, the Undertaker hopes to employ you to rid Wraeclast of this menace - and further his cryptic cause.
  • Examine the Spirits haunting Wraeclast by peering through the Lantern of Arimor. The Lantern allows you to manipulate the Spirits, letting you configure which monsters they haunt. It would be wise to take your time with your decisions, for the Spirits are not forgiving.
  • The Undertaker’s mysterious soul experiments can coalesce into powerful items. Take the corpses of haunted monsters to the Necropolis, bury them in one of the many graves in the cemetery and exorcise them to forge items from their souls.
  • For more information about this expansion, check out pathofexile.com/necropolis
  • With 3.24.0, there are Standard, Hardcore, Solo Self-Found and Ruthless variations of the Necropolis 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.
