The new Season 3.21 – Crucible has officially started! Players can now explore Wraeclast once again, including the new Crucible Mechanic. We have all the Information and Hotfixes prepared for you! 

Kirac's Vault Pass

We have released a new version of Kirac’s Vault Pass! This league’s pass can be purchased with points, and for the first time, has a free track available. Its premium track contains a new exclusive armour set and some mystery boxes, rather than unique item skins.





Free Track

The free track of Kirac’s Vault rewards you with items such as Scouting Reports, Scarabs, Sextants and Breachstones for completing bonus objectives of maps in Path of Exile’s endgame. You can complete it once in each Crucible league you play, such as Crucible or Hardcore Crucible. The free track does not grant items in Ruthless modes.

You’ll earn your first reward upon entering the Karui Shores, after defeating Kitava. You’ll earn additional rewards by completing sets of map bonus objectives while exploring your Atlas. If you complete the bonus objectives of all 115 maps, you’ll have earned all available rewards!

Exclusive Microtransactions

Purchase your premium pass and complete Atlas objectives to earn mystery boxes and the exclusive Igneous Emperor Armour Set. This armour set is purely cosmetic and does not affect your character’s power or progression.
