Modifiers

The map has two pools of map modifiers, one draw from "synthesis global" pool (mod domain = 19), one from "synthesis local" pool (mod domain = 18). Synthesis map modifiers are not visible on the map itself, and these modifiers are only revealed upon entering the map.

Version history

Version Changes
3.17.0
  • Introduced a new "Synthesised Map" Base Type, which all 5 Unique Synthesis Maps now use. This Map is not found on the Atlas.
3.13.0
  • Map tiers and locations have been shuffled (though the 'pin' locations for maps has not changed). Most maps are now initially found at a different tier.[a]
3.12.0
  • Map tiers and locations have been shuffled (though the 'pin' locations for maps has not changed). Most maps are now initially found at a different tier.[a]
3.11.0
  • Map tiers and locations have been shuffled (though the 'pin' locations for maps has not changed). Most maps are now initially found at a different tier.[a]
3.9.0
  • All 5 Synthesis maps can now drop as unique items. They can only be acquired from map bosses of Tier 11 or greater maps (or Tier 14 or greater for Cortex), or if you're very, very lucky, maybe Zana will sell you one.
  • All Synthesis maps now require a minimum level 80 area to appear in Zana's mission window.
  • Unique maps can now drop with varied tiers based on the state of your Atlas. Maps that previously had monster level overrides (such as Hallowed GroundHallowed Ground

    ) now instead rely on the variable tier.[b]
3.8.0
  • Overhauled as a core mechanics
  • If you're lucky, Zana will now offer 5 new unique maps as part of her missions. Each map contains a boss encounter originally from the Synthesis league, and each can drop unique items originally exclusive to that league. Note, you cannot obtain Fractured items, nor will you have any access to the Synthesiser.
3.6.0
  • Introduced to the game as league mechanics

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Despite stated in the 3.11, 3.12, 3.13 patch notes that unique maps have not moved or changed tiers. Synthesis Maps have changed tiers. Despite the changes did not affect the real map level due to the level override map mod.
  2. Despite stated in the patch note that unique maps do not have monster level overrides anymore, all Synthesis Maps have introduced monster level overrides since version 3.9.0. In specific, Altered Distant Memory can dropped as variable tier since circa version 3.10.0.
