Firstly, you must allocate the Throw the Gauntlet keystone in the Atlas passives.
The Maven is an NPC and boss encountered within maps. Progressing the Maven's questline allows the player to unlock powerful atlas passive skills that enhance the rewards and fights of maps within the Atlas of Worlds.
By slaying 3 map bosses in the Maven's presence, you'll earn an invitation to The Maven's Crucible where she will request that you defeat these bosses simultaneously. Having demonstrated your strength, she challenges you to defeat four bosses, then five, then six and finally ten at the same time. Only then can you take on the new pinnacle boss of the Atlas: the Maven herself. The Atlas Quick Guide takes the player through all the steps required to find The Maven and to unlock The Maven's Crucible.
To know if the map is eligible to have Maven's presence, you can check if her symbol is highlighted before activating your map device.
Maven will boost the boss in one of the following ways:
Players can fight The Maven by collecting Crescent Splinters from fights within The Maven's Crucible and combining them to form The Maven's Writ. Using the Maven's Writ with the map device will allow the player to fight the Maven. Defeating the Maven for the first time will reward the player with an atlas passive skill point and a Ceremonial Voidstone. Additionally, she will drop exclusive unique items as listed below, as well as Elevated Sextant. Usually the latter two are worth way more than the unique items.
PoE 3.18 added 7 new uber versions of Pinnacle Boss fights, accessible through Atlas Keystone Passives. These fights are extremely difficult, so only attempt them if you have a very powerful character.
Six new keystones create uber versions of Path of Exile's pinnacle boss fights: Venarius, Sirus, The Maven, The Searing Exarch, The Eater of Worlds and The Shaper and The Uber Elder.
|Uber Pinnacle Boss||Atlas Keystone||Description|
|Uber Venarius||Memento Mori||
|Uber Eater of Worlds||Insatiable Appetite||
|Uber Maven||Throw the Gauntlet||
|Uber Searing Exarch||Thirst for Knowledge||
|Uber Sirus||The Perfect Storm||
|Uber Shaper and Uber Uber Elder||Cosmic Wounds||
Allocating one of these keystones on your Atlas passive tree ramps up the corresponding boss fight so that it is extremely difficult. Like, really hard. Harder than saying goodbye to Zana hard. Only allocate these keystones if your character is extremely powerful and you know you can handle the challenge. In general, the encounters' rules are modified to be far more punitive and difficult. In return, though, you can earn some very enticing rewards. Each of the uber fights has an additional high-chance reward and a chance of getting a very very rare chase reward. For example, the Uber Maven guarantees an Elevated Sextant if you're able to complete the encounter. Very rarely, you may be able to earn an Awakened Exceptional Support Gem as well such as Empower, Enlighten or Enhance.
These keystones unlock crazy battles that will challenge our most aspiring players who are deep in Path of Exile's endgame. They add a new level of difficulty for those who want to push their builds even farther than they ever have before.
