Map Fragments
Also referred to as:

    Map fragments are items that can be used in a map device to open portals to various high level areas. Placing any one of the fragments along with a map into the map device will increase the item quantity of that map.

    Mechanics

    Map fragment sets, as well as Breachstone and Emblems are mainly used to open portals to special map area. Fragments from sets, as well as Scarabs and Lures can be used to enhance a map when the fragments are use along with a map item. Use a single vaal map fragment can open a portal to vaal side area.

    Map IIQ

    If the player places a fragment along with a map into the map device, the map will have an additional 5% increased quantity of items dropped. Advanced Vaal fragments grant 10% quantity. Multiple fragments can be used to stack more quantity though they need to be of different types to stack. For example, adding 2 Sacrifice at DuskSacrifice at DuskItem Quantity: +5%5% increased Quantity of Items found in this AreaThe Vaal shall never fear the setting of our sun.Can be used in a personal Map Device. to the map device adds just 5% item quantity where adding 1 Sacrifice at DuskSacrifice at DuskItem Quantity: +5%5% increased Quantity of Items found in this AreaThe Vaal shall never fear the setting of our sun.Can be used in a personal Map Device. and 1 Sacrifice at DawnSacrifice at DawnItem Quantity: +5%5% increased Quantity of Items found in this AreaOnly those who aspire can dare to hope.Can be used in a personal Map Device. would add 10% item quantity to a map area. Adding one more different fragment such as a Sacrifice at NoonSacrifice at NoonItem Quantity: +5%5% increased Quantity of Items found in this AreaThe light without pales in comparison to the light within.Can be used in a personal Map Device. would increase the item quantity to 15%.

    Vaal side areas

    Vaal fragments can be placed in the map device on its own to instance a random vaal side area. Adding more fragments increases the item quantity of the area, the same way it works with maps. As long as they aren't placed in the correct arrangement, a full set of fragments will open a corrupted area with 15% increased item quantity.

    The level of the area will depend on the fragment used:
