Back to Basics is an Atlas passive skill and Atlas keystone.


This keystone multiplies all modifier effects on your maps (including implicit modifiers), but disables all Extra Content and Shaper, Elder, Conqueror, or Eldritch influence from appearing in your maps.

It also prevents you from opening any maps with things that would otherwise force Extra Content to appear, such as scarabs. Any Delirium orbs applied to the map will not take effect.[confirmation needed]

Back to Basics can also prevent the quest states of the Maven and Eldritch Horrors in the Atlas from advancing by disabling them from affecting a map.[1]
