And gain new mods for your PoE items
The Conquerors of the Atlas were once part of a team who chased after the Elder through the Atlas. One by one the group splintered, with 5 of them succumbing to the corruption the Atlas brings. Veritania, the Redeemer is one of them. Despite thinking herself pure and uncorrupted, that kind of thinking became the root of her corruption. She is currently a boss in the Atlas and drops the unique PoE currency Redeemer’s Exalted Orbs.
How to Fight Veritania, the Redeemer
After reaching a corner of the Atlas, you’ll start encountering influenced maps. They’re color-coded depending on which Conqueror is influencing it. For Veritania, the color is icy blue. By doing enough influenced maps, her Citadel may be spawned. Talk to Officer Kirac and then Zana to open the portals. Go through it, defeating the boss at the end. A portal appears next to the dead boss, and it leads to where you can fight her.
You have six tries else she escapes and you have to repeat everything to fight her again.
Using Redeemer’s Exalted Orbs
All you have to do is use it on a rare item. The PoE item gets influenced and receives an affix (either Redeemer’s or of Redemption). As an Exalted Orb, you can only use it on rare items and not PoE uniques. Similarly, you can’t use these orbs on influenced Path of Exile items such as Hunter or Warlord items. That includes PoE items that you’ve used other Conqueror Exalted Orbs (Hunter’s, Conqueror’s, Warlord’s) on as well.
The orb may only result in either affix, but the effects vary wildly. There are about 200 effects you can get between both the prefix and the suffix. Some of them are actually just stronger effects, depending on the level of the item you used it on. The higher the level, the stronger the effects. Some examples are:
- (0.2-0.4)% Cold Damage Leeched as Energy Shield
- (13-15)% increased Evasion Rating
- +2 to Level of Socketed Cold Gems
- Adds (11-14) to (22-25) Cold Damage; Attacks with this Weapon Penetrate (5-7)% Cold Resistance
These mods trump a majority of what you can get from normal Exalted Orbs. Be sure to check out which ones are preferable to your PoE build before trying it out!
Unfortunately, you can’t reroll the influenced mod on an item. Conqueror’s Exalted Orbs only work on uninfluenced Path of Exile items, and the use of one turns it influenced. That means you can’t use Redeemer’s Exalted Orbs to change the mods of Redeemer items. The same goes for the other Conqueror orbs. You have to be really lucky to get what you want in one try.
Rare items can only hold up to six random modifiers. Make sure you can bear to lose any of them if you’ve crafted the Path of Exile item yourself. You may have Catalysts on your item to increase the chances of getting certain modifiers. The orb removes the 20% quality reduction given by Catalysts.
The Redeemer’s Exalted Orb, like the other Conqueror PoE orbs, is a treasure trove of powerful modifiers. It’s something every item crafter wants to have. Be sure to use them wisely or else you’ll have to fight the corresponding Conqueror again to get more.
You’ll also have to craft or obtain more rare items to use them on, as they have no effect on influenced Path of Exile items. To get the best results, use them on PoE items with a high level. That way you can ensure that the strongest modifiers appear on the item.
As long as you have a proper PoE build with good Cold Resistance, it shouldn’t be too difficult to win against Veritania, the Redeemer. Then again, repeating a battle, again and again, can still be tiring. You can try fighting against all four Conquerors, in turn, to ease the repetitiveness. It can also open the way to fight Sirus, Awakener of Worlds, the final boss of the expansion.
That’s all for the use of Redeemer’s Exalted Orbs. Again, take care that you don’t accidentally erase a modifier you want to keep. You can only use the orb once per item, so do all you can to direct it to something beneficial to you. These unique types of PoE currency are a source of strong modifiers for your PoE items, so don’t miss the opportunity to use them!
Enjoy Path of Exile, and continue your exploration and domination of the Atlas!
