The Maven's Crucible is a boss arena where players fight multiple captured bosses simultaneously under the observation of The Maven. Players enter the crucible using various Maven's Invitations. Completing each Crucible for the first time awards players with 1 atlas passive skill point. The Crucible also provides The Maven's Gift which allows players to assign their atlas skill points.

Mechanics

The Maven's Crucible is an arena that contains all of the captured bosses within that region. Players must fight and defeat all the bosses simultaneously in order to win the battle. The final Crucible that contains 10 bosses is repeatable, similar to spawning Eldritch Horrors.

Atlas invitations have several different spawn patterns, including releasing monsters in pairs, on a timer, or all at once.

Endgame invitations spawn 2 monsters at once, then the other 2 after 20 seconds or if any are killed early. The Feared will spawn 2 monsters initially then the remaining 3 after 20 seconds. This can be bypassed, spawning all five bosses at once by rolling a specific modifier on these endgame invitations.

Upon completion, it grants the player access to The Maven's Gift which allows players to assign a skill point to their Atlas passive skill tree for each first clear of an Invitation.

Entry

The Crucible can only be accessed by using a Maven's Invitation in the Map Device.

The invitations for 3/4/5/6 bosses are guaranteed drop and quest items. Collecting 10 bosses for the FIRST time for that region also guaranteed to drop a rare invitation.

Tiers

Maven's Invitation: The Atlas has 5 tiers. The first 4 tiers are untradable quest items, and the 5th tier is a tradable misc map item. Other invitations have only one tier, which is tradeable item, just like final tier of Maven's Invitation: The Atlas

The area level is scaled by the number of bosses, as shown in the table below

Invitation No. Invitation Type Area Level Bosses Atlas Passive Skill Points
1 Quest Item 73 3 1
2 Quest Item 75 4 1
3 Quest Item 78 5 1
4 Quest Item 80 6 1
5 misc map item 83 10 1 (only first completion)

The number of bosses of Invitations other than The Atlas are shown on the item.

The level of monsters (and the ilvl of items they drop) inside The Maven's Crucible can be increased by 2 upon allocating Captivated Interest on Atlas Passive Skill Tree.This is relevant for divination cards like Dying LightDying Light10Diamond Ring
