Warning: This guide assumes you know how to farm Delirium Orbs, Breach and Eldritch Altars read our linked guides to learn.

The Strand Delirium Orb Strategy utilizes the monsters spawned by Abysses and Breaches to allow you to complete a large amount of Delirium Orb reward thresholds quickly. This is an endgame farming strategy intended for powerful builds to generate large amounts of currency.

  • Delirium Orbs drop their specific Delirium reward, Simulacrum Splinters, cluster jewels, Maps and Currency.
  • Breach Content drops Breach Splinters, Breach Stones and The Chosen.
  • Abyss Content drops Abyss Jewels and high item level Stygian Vises

Requirements

  • Delirium Orbs require a build that is able to complete some of the hardest map mechanics (Abyss and Breach) under the influence of 80% Delirium.
Voidstones: 4

Favourites: 10
Atlas Points: 128

Set-Up

PRO TIP: When setting up to run this strategy it is recommended you purchase enough materials to complete a sizeable set of maps. Failing to do so makes selling drops more difficult and you'll constantly be trading to purchase additional materials instead of mapping.

Map Choice & Favorites

  • Tier 16 Strand Map - is the best Delirium map, it has the highest hidden Deliriumreward threshold multiplier; Strand also has a great layout and a short boss fight.
  • Favorites - Allocate 1 of your favorites to a map adjacent to Strand on the atlas you plan to run or can sell. Use the rest of your favorite map slots on Strand e.g. (11 Strands, 1 Adjacent Map).

Map Device

  • Eldritch Influence: Eater of Worlds
  • Kirac: Breach - Adds 2 additional breaches

Compasses

Apply the Mandatory compasses to your voidstones, consider using some of the high budget compasses if you can afford them and your build is capable of them. Purchase compasses in bulk fast using the TFT community trade discord.

Fragments

Select a fragment set-up based on your desired investment level run it on every map. Higher levels of investment DO NOT mean more profit for Delirium Orbs but more consistent Delirium reward thresholds. Delirium Orbs do not scale exceptionally well with quantity so feel free to exclude the Sacrificial Fragments if desired.

Delirium Orbs

There are a variety of Delirium Orbs each of which offer different drops when you reach Delirium thresholds. Choosing the most profitable orb to run is critical. Use 4 of one of the following types on every map:

  • Skittering Delirium Orb (Best)
  • Diviner's Delirium Orbs (Risky)
  • Cartographer's Delirium Orbs (Good)

Atlas Passive Tree

Note: This atlas passive tree allocates ominous silence which states it blocks the delirium mechanic. Using delirium orbs forces delirium onto the map despite what the node says turning this node into pure upside.

Delirium Orb Atlas Passive Tree

Passive Overview

Eldritch Altars provide a constant flow of currency items.

Delirium Orbs offer the usual Delirium gameplay as well as a large quantity of rewards based on the type of orb used. Atlas passives greatly enhance everything orbs have to offer.

Abyss spawns an absurd amount of monsters to fuel your Delirium Orbs. Stygian spires also drop high level Stygian Vises for you to sell. Atlas passives double down on Abysses strengths.

Breach spawns a good amount of monsters as fodder for your Delirium Orbs. Over your farming sessions you will also accumulate some breach drops you can sell.

7th Gate With this keystone active and all Atlas Passive Gateways allocated you can access any league mechanic Kirac modifier regardless of league restrictions.

Gameplay

Rolling Maps

PRO TIP: Most of the rewards from Delirium orbs do not scale with item quantity. To make content easier you can run the maps unrolled or as magic at the cost of a little % pack size.

1. Clean Your Maps - Ensure all of your maps are identified and then use an Orb of Scouring to make them all normal rarity, since achieving 20% quality on white maps requires significantly less Cartographer's Chisels.

2. Chiseling - Use Cartographer's Chisels on all of your maps until each one is 20% quality.

3. Alchemy/Transmutation Orbs - Use Orbs of Alchemy on every map you have at 20% quality. Re-roll maps your character cannot run using Orb of Scouring and Orb of Alchemy. Alternatively you can use Orb of Transmutation and Orb of Alteration and run your maps magic for a dramatically easier mapping experience at the cost of some item quantity and potential delirium reward thresholds.

4. Delirium Orbs - Apply 4 Delirium Orbs on all of your appropriately rolled maps.

Running Maps

Follow these steps to complete the maps efficiently.

Step 1 - Ensure your Tier 16 Strand map is correctly rolled, your chosen fragment set-up is in the device and your compasses are applied.

Step 2 - Enter the Strand map and clear your way to the first Breach or Abyss and complete it ensuring you slay most monsters on the way while maintaining a quick pace.

Step 3 - Loot your Delirium threshold rewards while clearing and ensure you stand on any easily accessible Delirium Fungus for extra monsters.

Step 4 - Destroy all easily killable Delirium bosses you encounter.

Step 5 - Upon reaching 13 Delirium rewards (16 using fill faster compass) stop killing monsters and run straight to the boss and slay it. Ensure you leave no loot behind portal out and repeat.
