The Maven watches the player slay a map boss

For an eternity, the darkness swelled within a ceaseless churn of its feeding, and then... silence. Such silence is deafening to those who listen for it. The abyss cast its gaze upon its source. The first lurching movement of boundaries drawn long before the dawn. A claimant has arrived. You may know who. You wish to know why.

The Maven seeks new conflict. Bored, she is, with the realm she has given. She is not the only one. The silence is deafening to all.

The Maven is an NPC and boss encountered within maps. Progressing the Maven's questline allows the player to unlock powerful atlas passive skills that enhance the rewards and fights of maps within the Atlas of Worlds.

Entry

Maven's Crucible

By slaying 3 map bosses in the Maven's presence, you'll earn an invitation to The Maven's Crucible where she will request that you defeat these bosses simultaneously. Having demonstrated your strength, she challenges you to defeat four bosses, then five, then six and finally ten at the same time. Only then can you take on the new pinnacle boss of the Atlas: the Maven herself. The Atlas Quick Guide takes the player through all the steps required to find The Maven and to unlock The Maven's Crucible.

To know if the map is eligible to have Maven's presence, you can check if her symbol is highlighted before activating your map device.

Maven will boost the boss in one of the following ways:

  • Create a clone of the boss
  • Increase the boss's damage mitigation
  • Increase the boss's speed
  • Recover the boss's life
  • Cast Decay status icon.pngSpatial Decay on the player
  • Cast Grasping Vines status icon.pngEthereal Tendrils on the player
  • Cast an orb that follows the player and deals fire damage over time from the debuff Ignite status icon.pngOrb Fire
  • Cast an orb that, when triggered, drops 14pxFrozen Ground which deals cold damage over time
  • Cast an orb that chases the player and explodes, dealing lightning damage
