With the Delve release, Zana and the Atlas of Worlds are getting a bunch of new features.
These are new map modifiers that will exist on the Atlas and are a more powerful version of the Shaper Influence, one which Elder can’t overwhelm. This implies that only the player can clear these areas from the Atlas by clearing the map with the modifier. However, these maps will contain really powerful mobs and bosses, yet the prizes are well justified.
In addition to whatever drops occur in the maps, players can also get Unique Items (including league restricted ones) Shaper items and currency like Chisels or Sextants.
Initially, there will be four on yellow maps. After the player finished them, each one will move to red maps. Upon completion, there is a chance for them to randomly spawn when Shaper Influence appears. You will be able to restrict their Tier by controlling the Elder influence.
In Delve Zana will also be getting an expanded list of rewards. Her Quests are additionally more clear. Zana will guide the player to particular maps to find Shaper and Elder in order to proceed with her own questlines.
A new unique map will also be introduced in Delve. Doryani’s Machinarium is inspired by Incursion League mechanics and mixes them with existing ones create a fully customizable boss. Players begin by escorting a pillar to an endpoint and then have the opportunity to choose what modifiers they will want to face in the map boss.
The decisions you make will affect the boss life, damage, and in addition loot drops. Both the escort and the final boss will be pretty intense.
