PoE Cartography Scarab

Here's how Cartography Scarabs work:

  1. Use in Map Device: Before running a map, you can place a Cartography Scarab in your Map Device along with your desired map.
  2. Increased Map Drops: The scarab's effect applies to the entire map you run. You'll have a higher chance of finding additional maps of various tiers throughout the encounter.

Important Notes:

  • Increased Chance, Not Guaranteed: The scarab only increases the probability of finding maps, not a guaranteed number. It's still possible to have some maps with lower drop rates.
  • Map Quality: The quality of the map you're running can also influence the tier and quantity of additional maps you find. Higher quality maps generally offer a better chance for higher tier map drops.
  • Alternative Uses: While Cartography Scarabs are primarily used for map farming, they can also be beneficial when running maps with specific divination card rewards that require large quantities of maps to be sacrificed.


Cartography Scarabs are a valuable tool for players who want to build up their map pool and sustain their mapping experience. The higher tier scarabs offer a significant increase in map drops, but they are also rarer and more expensive to acquire.
