Let's take a look at the Uncharted Realms. Adept Tracker continues to be the most popular choice here, giving quicker progress towards Conqueror encounters. A notable difference from 3.13.0 is how much of a gap there is between the most popular option and the second most popular option. Previously, Master of the Atlas and Paths Not Taken were somewhat close to Adept Tracker, but they've taken a significant hit in popularity across all leagues. Enduring Influence has become slightly more popular, perhaps in thanks to the emergent Harbinger-focussed strategy being used in Valdo's Rest.
