Path of Exile Expedition league official webpage

Expedition league is a challenge league. It launched on July 23, 2021 (UTC), alongside the Version 3.15.0 patch.

This league introduces four NPC characters from the Kalguuran expedition, who came to Wraeclast to excavate their ancestor's lost settlements. Using explosives, the player sets them around the expedition site to unearth the monsters or treasure hiding underneath. After recovering artifact pieces from the expedition, you can barter or gamble with them for items. Kalguuran equipment have a special defense stat called Ward, which shields the user from damage on the next hit they take and replenishes after a delay.

League mechanic

Main page: Expedition

One of the four NPCs from the Kalguuran expedition will spawn in the area, surrounded by various markers. Approaching them will allow you to start placing explosives to excavate the area. Any marker within the explosives range will unearth monsters or chests. The explosives detonate in the order you've placed them, and there is a maximum range between explosives. There are also Remnants which add mods to monsters and chests spawned from the explosion and all subsequent explosions.

NPCs

Any artifacts you find from the expedition will match the NPC that spawned. NPCs do not refresh their stock unless it is manually restocked, using specific currency items to do so.

  • Gwennen - Sells unidentified equipment which reveals its rarity and mods when purchased. Takes Broken Circle Artifacts and Astragali for restocks.
  • Tujen - Sells non-equipment items at the listed price, but they can be haggled down for lower. Tujen may make a counteroffer or even remove the item from sale. Takes Black Scythe Artifacts and Exotic Coinage for restocks.
  • Rog - Sells identified rare equipment. Before taking the item, he will make an offer to modify it for more Artifacts at different prices. You cannot skip an offer twice in a row. Takes Order Artifacts and Scrap Metal for restocks.
  • Dannig - Opens portals using Expedition Logbooks in the hideout. Sells Artifacts for the other three NPCs in exchange for Sun Artifacts. Restocking with Buried Medallion adds better artifact exchange rates and/or reroll items.
