PoE Torment Scarab of Peculiarity

The Torment Scarab of Peculiarity in Path of Exile injects a dose of the unexpected into your map runs by altering the Tormented Spirits you encounter. Here’s what to expect:

Unusual Encounters:

  • Replaced Spirits: This scarab replaces the standard Tormented Spirits found in the map with “unusual variants.” These variants likely possess unique abilities, behaviors, or appearances compared to their regular counterparts.

Adding Spice to Gameplay:

  • Surprise and Challenge: The unknown nature of the unusual variants introduces an element of surprise and potentially increased challenge to your map runs. You’ll need to adapt your strategies to handle these unique foes.

Weighing the Use:

  • Torment Scarab: This scarab simply increases the number of regular Tormented Spirits, offering a more predictable, but potentially more rewarding experience with increased monster density and potential drops.
  • Other Scarabs: Consider using scarabs focused on different mechanics based on your needs, like increased map difficulty for better rewards or scarabs that affect specific resources like Breach or Legion encounters.
