PoE Scarab of Adversaries

Mirrored Rare Monster Packs:

  • When you use this Scarab in your Map Device before running a map, it guarantees the presence of four additional monster packs within the map area.
  • Each of these extra packs will be comprised entirely of Mirrored Rare Monsters.

Understanding Mirrored Rares:

  • Regular Rare Monsters: These are typically yellow-colored enemies that are naturally tougher than white monsters. They have higher life pools, deal more damage, and can have inherent abilities.
  • Mirrored Rares: These are special variations of Rare monsters created by the unique Atlas encounter, “The Reflection of Hope.” Mirrored Rares are significantly more challenging than regular Rares. They possess increased life, deal more damage, and can have additional modifiers that make them even more dangerous.

Impact of the Scarab:

  • Four Tough Encounters: The Scarab strategically injects four guaranteed encounters with Mirrored Rare monster packs throughout your map run. Be prepared for challenging battles that will test your character’s build and skill.
  • Potentially High Rewards: While definitely more difficult, Mirrored Rare monsters also have a significantly higher chance of dropping better loot. You can expect an increased opportunity to acquire valuable items and currency.


The PoE Scarab of Adversaries is a strategic choice for experienced players who can handle the significantly increased difficulty of Mirrored Rare encounters. It offers a chance to acquire high-tier rewards but comes at the cost of facing very challenging enemies throughout your map run. Use this Scarab strategically if you’re comfortable with a significant challenge and are looking for a way to target high-tier rewards from monster drops.
