Inscribed Ultimatums - Path of Exile

Inscribed Ultimatum: Double or Nothing

In the endgame, Inscribed Ultimatum Inscribed Ultimatums indicate an offering you must bring to the Trialmaster’s Domain. If you’re able to succeed at the inscribed challenge, the Trialmaster will reward you with an item of roughly double value. But if you fail, you forfeit the offering that you put on the line. Inscribed Ultimatums come with a challenging assortment of Ultimatum difficulty modifiers and can be traded to other players.

Each Inscribed Ultimatum Inscribed Ultimatum specifies an offering that you must bring with you, a reward that you can earn, and an assortment of Ultimatum difficulty modifiers.

Inscribed Ultimatums can be used in a map device to open a portal to the Utzaal Arena, which only contains an altar. The required item must be placed on the altar to start the trial.

Naturally, Inscribed Ultimatums can be traded with other players, so if you don’t feel capable of completing a difficult challenge, you may be able to trade it away for a portion of the difference in price between the reward and the item that must be risked. Likewise, if you have a powerful character, you may be able to selectively trade for profitable Ultimatums to run.

Partying

When facing a Trial of Chaos with other players, each player will be offered their own individual set of rewards. When an individual player fails the trial, they will lose their rewards but the trial will continue with the remaining players.

In between waves, the players will vote on which modifier to add to the next wave. The one with the most votes gets added. In case of ties, a mod is randomly chosen between them. Players have a limited time to vote, but the timer is paused if at least one party member is not present in the zone.
