The Sacred Grove PoE Harvest Guide

The Sacred Grove is an ancient garden of mysterious power in PoE Harvest league.

Oshabi is the new NPC in PoE Harvest League. She is the keeper of the Sacred Grove.

The Sacred Grove

“It is beautiful, yes? I believe it to be older than the Eternal Empire. Older than the Vaal? I am not so sure. But it does not look like their work. I like to believe it is a work of my ancestral Azmeri. I was once blessed with a deep connection to the land. It would speak to me, and nourish me. But that connection was severed. And in turn, my tribe severed their connection to me. I was alone. Lost. The land spoke no more… until I found this place.” — Oshabi

Plant Potent Seeds

Seek out the Seed Cache in every area you explore. Take its seeds through Oshabi’s portal to the Sacred Grove. Sow those seeds to grow dangerous and rewarding monsters. While most seeds grow easily, rarer high-tier ones require more careful planning but yield more valuable results.

Extract the Lifeforce

When your monsters are ready for harvest, slaughter them and claim their Lifeforce. Every enemy you fight in the Sacred Grove is one you intentionally planted. Customise your combat around your character’s capabilities and what rewards you’re seeking.

Reap a Bountiful Harvest

Every monster you defeat in the Grove grants you a crafting option. Performing one of these powerful crafts consumes Lifeforce from the monsters you just harvested. In order to maximise your Lifeforce and hence crafting potential, you’ll want to take on as many monsters as you dare handle. Harvest Crafting provides powerful directed crafting to an extent that Path of Exile has never seen before.

Evolve your Garden

As you build the ultimate garden, you’ll discover exotic seeds with specific needs that must be met in order to grow. Various pipes, condensers and dispersers can help you fertilise your garden with any remaining Lifeforce.

Unearth Legendary Foes

Oshabi speaks of the legend of three primordial beasts: Ersi, Janaar and Namharim. For those able to cultivate these rare seeds, the immense monsters that emerge can yield Harvest’s most valuable rewards.

If I don't feel like tending my garden, what happens if I skip entering the garden for a map?

This has no negative effect on your garden; it just pauses your progress. You can leave it for as long as you'd like and return to it when you're ready. 

How do I get garden equipment?

You start with a small amount of each type of equipment to facilitate getting your garden started. Some is already placed in your garden to ensure that it's easy to learn how things work as you progress through the game. It's likely that you can use Lifeforce to purchase additional pieces of infrastructure. 

Can I accidentally target my garden's infrastructure while I'm fighting monsters?

You have a short window to activate as many Collectors as you'd like. After this window, you can't target anything else in your garden while monsters are alive. The exception to this is the portal to exit your garden in case you need to quickly flee the danger. 

Will we be able to move or delete garden infrastructure if we'd like to change their placement?


Can I access the Sacred Grove from my hideout?


Do monsters from the garden also drop items?

Yes! The main reward for tending your garden is powerful crafting options, but you'll also receive regular items and potentially some Harvest-specific uniques. The item drop rate of monsters in the garden is higher than that of regular monsters in the main game (because they're league content). 

Will there be some way to know when your plants are ready to Harvest without visiting your garden?

We're currently working on some kind of signal within the UI that will alert you when you have a collector that's near plants that are ready to Harvest. Its exact implementation is currently in progress and we'll confirm the final details as soon as they are decided. 

How do I get to my garden?

When you open a seed cache, Oshabi will appear from her portal. You can walk through it to access your garden or alternatively, enter it from your hideout. 

Will my garden ever reset?

No, your garden has a set size from the beginning. You'll always access the same one but it will continue to evolve as you develop your garden. You can move infrastructure and plants around if you put them in the wrong place. 

Can I access my stash in the garden?

Yes - You can craft items that are stored in your stash, but cannot remove or add items to the stash if you're in a map. 

Can I re-enter the garden if I die?

Yes, unless you're in a Hardcore league of course. The monsters will remain until the instance closes. 

Am I able to access my garden from my other characters?

Yes, you have one garden per league that each of your characters within that league can access. However, your plants will only grow if you're opening seed caches that are from a level similar to the level of the plants in your garden. For example, you can't progress your level 82 seeds while you're in the Mud Flats. 

Do your map mods affect the monsters in your garden?

We're still working out the finer details of this so can't confirm anything just yet. 

Can Delirium affect the monsters in your garden?

Our intention is that Delirium can spread through your garden and the timer will be paused if all players in the instance are inside the Grove.
