A Breach portal
A Breachlord's Clasped Hand is barely visible before opening the breach

Breaches are timed monster-spawning portals. This encounter is considered Extra Content and has a baseline greater than 8% chance to appear in any map area.

Overview

Breaches will randomly spawn in an area in an inactive state. They're easily identified by the hand-like construct within a purple circle and purple swirls can be seen within the vicinity. Walking into the hand will activate the breach. Breaches can also be spawned using Vaal BreachVaal BreachSpell, Vaal

, but enemies in these breaches do not give experience or drop items.

Active breaches will expand their circle outwards and spawn a mix of breach monsters within the circle; the faster the monsters are killed the faster the circle expands. After a while, the expansion of the breach will slow down until it eventually retracts quickly and closes.

Breaches stay open for a minimum of 30 seconds, increasing to a maximum of 60 based on how quickly breach monsters are killed. Normal monsters killed while in the breach do not increase the active time.

Monsters moving outside of the active radius will despawn after a short delay. During this time, however, it is still possible to attack and be attacked by the monsters before they're removed. It is also possible for monsters inside the breach to hit the character while they are outside it.

Breach monsters have increased item rarity and quantity, but have a reduced chance to spawn beyond demons and only rare breach monsters are able to drop maps. In addition there is a chance to obtain breach-specific unique items and splinters from these monsters as well as breach-exclusive Breach RingsBreach RingProperties are doubled while in a BreachCorrupted.

Occasionally, a Breachlord can spawn from a Breach. They will drop a number of Splinters when the breach collapses based on how much damage was dealt to them or the maximum of ten when defeated.

Breaches also contain "Clasped Hands", a breach-specific type of chest that opens when a player walks near them. They come in two varieties, "Clasped Hand" or "<Breachlord>'s Clasped Hand". These chests can drop additional splinters and only appear when the breach expands to them. It is possible to see Breachlord specific Clasped Hands before opening the breach itself as a shimmering transparent object.

There are fives types of breaches each associated with a damage type, which will affect accordingly

  • the type of monsters that will spawn with skills associated with the type
  • the type of splinters that are dropped
  • the type of unique items that can be obtained

Breach frequency

Breaches have a baseline greater than 8% chance to occur in maps by default. Xoph, Esh, and Tul Breaches are significantly more common than Uul-Netol or Chayula.

Breach items

There are two types of currency and one other item class associated with breaches; each is specific to a breach type for a total of 15 currency items.

Splinters

Main page: Splinter

Splinters are dropped by Breach monsters or Clasped Hands within breaches. 100 Splinters of the same type can be combined into a Breachstone.

There is currently an issue with the currency tab; if you remove a stack of 100 splinters they will not upgrade to a Breachstone. In order to fix it, remove a single splinter and put it back on the stack.

Breachstones

Main page: Breachstone

Breachstones are obtained from combining Splinters. They can be put into a map device in order to enter the associated domain of a Breachlord.

The domain of a Breachlord is a unique area that contains one single large expanding breach and the domain's unique boss at the end. The breach is only active for a limited time that can be extended by killing breach monsters. When the boss area is reached the timer will stop; which allows for fighting the boss at any pace or picking up items that were left behind. Letting the timer run out before the breach fully expands will permanently collapse it for that instance.

Blessings

Main page: Blessing

Blessings are occasionally dropped by Breachlords. They can not be obtained outside of the Breachlord's domain, and are not guaranteed to drop.

Blessing can be used to upgrade Breach unique items to a new version of the item or used on Breachstones to upgrade them into their Flawless variants.

Strategy

Since the breaches can spawn a very large number of monsters that hit hard is advisable to be cautious when opening breaches; death can come quickly and without warning.

Characters that have high survivability, high mobility, high damage output as well as good area clearing ability are best at effectively clearing breaches.

Strategies (not all may be suitable for your build):

  • Avoid opening breaches near dangerous fights - i.e. clear the area first before opening; fighting a breach and a map boss at the same time, for example, can pose a very large risk of character death
  • When in a party coordinate the opening
  • Consider creating a portal near the breach for emergency escape and/or quick return in the case of death
  • Watch out for the type of breach you are facing; some breaches might pose a larger risk to some characters than others.
  • Try to stay in a corner or room instead of the middle of the breach to avoid having all monsters instantly attack you. Clear monsters carefully area by area
  • Be careful when leaving the breach area; while the monsters disappear outside of the circle, it is still possible for them to hit you for a short period of time
  • If you are faced with breach that you can't handle, consider leaving the area for a while until it times out
  • Simply not opening a breach can also be a good option; use movement skills like Lightning WarpLightning WarpSpell, AoE, Duration, Movement, Lightning, Travel

Version history

Version Changes
3.24.0
  • Clasped Hands in Breach encounters now open when you walk near them. Breach Splinters are also now the only items that have a chance to drop from these chests.
3.21.0
  • The pacing of Breach encounters has been improved. They now feel dense with monsters throughout the Breach, leaning more on the side of it feeling overwhelming towards the end. We've also reduced the duration of Breaches so that there is constant monster pressure and you can get on with your mapping sooner.
  • The number of Breach Splinters dropped are now affected by increases and reductions to item quantity.
  • The experience gained from killing Breach Monsters in your Maps has been reduced and the number of Breach Splinters dropped from Monsters has been rebalanced, as you're now encountering more of them.
  • The number of Breach Splinters dropped by Breach Bosses in your Map has been reduced.
3.20.0
  • We want to improve on the concept that the Atlas Tree allows players to invest into leagues that they enjoy, and have added new clusters to the passive tree for league content that can be blocked through Atlas Passive Skills. We've also increased the chances for such league content to appear.
