A Ritual in progress with monsters attacking the player within the Ritual Circle

Rituals are encounters that spawn from Ritual Altars. After activating the Altar, players must defeat the enemies enclosed within the Ritual Circle, gaining Tribute in the process. Players can then spend the earned Tribute to purchase various types of rewards including pre-identified rare items. This encounter is considered Extra Content and has a baseline greater than 8% chance to appear in any non-unique map area.

Ritual Altars

A Bitter Ritual Altar encountered within the Acts

Ritual Altars can be randomly encountered while playing through the storyline and have a baseline greater than 8% chance to spawn in any end-game map. The amount of Altars that appear in each instance is either three or four (it was 1 to 4 in the Ritual league). It cannot be found within Heists or in Delve.

  1. Players must first kill the monsters guarding a ritual altar before being allowed to activate the ritual.
  2. Clicking the altar begins the ritual and encloses players in the area of the Ritual Circle.
  3. Monsters will spawn in multiple waves, each wave harder than the last. Tribute is earned from each monster killed.
  4. After killing all the monsters within the ritual, or if players die before this, the combat phase ends and players can loot the altar.
  5. All altars share a single spawn pool; when an altar is activated, all dead monsters within that altar circle get added to the pool. Monsters that appear in earlier altars will reappear but give 40% reduced points per reappearance.
    • The reward penalty is additive. That is to say, the first time a monster is summoned it gives 100% points, on the next ritual it gives 60%, then 20% on the third, and finally no tribute at all on its fourth ritual.
  6. If a naturally generated unique monster, including the map boss, spawns and dies within the ritual altar's influence, it will spawn in subsequent rituals. (with less points rewarded each time)
  7. Clicking the altar displays the Ritual Favors interface that allows players to select their rewards. Some rewards are hidden and will be revealed after more rituals on the same map are completed.
  8. Players can then move to other areas of the Map and complete all the altars in order to unlock more rewards.

Small, moving blood pools will appear under killed enemies that count towards the ritual when activated. Luring faraway monsters into the circle will not add to the ritual encounter.

The amount of tribute earned from killing the monsters during the encounter depends on it the slain monster rarity. Unique map bosses give 400 tribute, Rare 135 tribute, Magic 25 and Normal 10. Unique monsters that are not a map boss (i.e. rogue exiles) give 75 points. However it is important to note that the rarity of monsters spawned is not the same as the rarity of monsters killed. I.e. even if you kill exclusively normal monsters before activating the ritual altar, you would still encounter magic and/or rare ones during the encounter. Likewise, the exact modifiers of the magic/rare monsters slain are not preserved upon resummonning.

Summoned minions (e.g. Necromancer's undead or adds spawned by various map unique bosses) do not get added to the monster pool, and killing them during the encounter gives no tribute.

Players can use the Ritual Rewards button to view the number of rituals in the area, number of completed rituals and the reward pool.

Rewards

Ritual Favors interface that allows players to select their rewards.

After completing a ritual, players can click the Altar to display the Favours interface that allows players to select their own rewards, in exchange for Tribute points.

  • All items are identified and players can see the exact mods and rolls of the item before selecting the reward. (Veiled mods can only be unveiled after purchase)
  • After a reward is selected and withdrawn, it cannot be returned/refunded.
  • All of the altars in the area are part of the same set, and share the same pool of rewards.
  • Completing a single ritual will only reveal 1/2 or 1/3 of the possible rewards.
  • Completing all the ritual altars in the area/map reveals all possible rewards.
  • Rewards can be rerolled for 2,000 tribute points. You can get two additional rerolls with Profitable Prayers allocated, and one reroll per Ritual Scarab of SelectivenessRitual Scarab of SelectivenessStack Size: 20Rerolling Favours at Ritual Altars in Area has no cost the first 2 times

Tip: It makes sense to complete all altars before deciding what to spend tribute on. If you do this then you will have maximum knowledge before making your choices - you will know how many points you have and all visible options.

Types

Default Ritual rewards include:

Special Reward Rituals (ones that resemble the Gore Portal EffectGore Portal EffectPortalThis character's portals use the Gore effect. MTX) cause the entire window to only contain Divination Cards, Currency, or Unique items. Rerolling in this scenario will always return a Special Reward window.

Deferring

Deferring allows players to mark rare rewards that they cannot presently afford with the Tribute they have, and those same items will re-appear in a later ritual.

  • Players must pay 10% + a 5% fee (without any atlas modifiers) to defer that item. Both % are relative to the original cost, with some rounding applied.
    • The original cost is the initial cost of an item before it's defered once, not the current cost of the item. So deferring an item will always cost the same, even when it shows up again.
  • Deferred items reappear in a random later area,[1] discounted by 10% of its original cost.
  • It is currently undetermined how long it takes for deferred items to show back up, however, more valuable items will take longer to reappear.
  • An item can be deferred 9-10 times (10 times sometimes with rounding) until the prices is under 10% of the original. At this point you get a message telling you that the item deffering failed, because the price is too low.
    • Sometimes deferring an item can be more costly than just buying it, when the item was deffered 9 times already, because of the deferral fee (the extra 5%).
  • An deferred item which shows back up, that is not deferred again, will increase in price by 10% of it's original cost (if you fail to defer it once), if the item reaches it's original price or is not deferred for multiple reoccurences, it has a red border and will not show up again, unless you defer it again.[2]
  • You can infinitly ping pong an item by deferring it and then not deferring it, alternating times. While this is inefficient, it might be necessary to reserve another good item due to a lack of tribute
  • There is a maximum amount of items that can be in the deferred at the same time. (Not in a single ritual, but in total in the invisible defer pool or queue.) If you want to defer an item while the maximum defer amount is reached, you will have to buy an item from the previously defered items, that is showing in your current ritual rewards.
  • The pool of deferred items is not shared between different characters in the same account in the same league - each character gets their own deferred items pool. This is in mild contrast with Atlas tree and item Stash both being shared.

Types

All of the Altars in the area are part of the same set, and share the same pool of rewards. Each successive Ritual in an area is harder and offers better rewards. Rituals spawn in various types, giving a different set of buffs to enemies and environmental effects.

Ritual Altars can have various modifiers, listed below. Each modifiers gives the ritual a different set of buffs to enemies and environmental damage. Altars surrounded by a fence have all Ritual rewards of the same type, either all Unique items, or Currency items, or Divination Cards.
