Warning: This guide assumes you know how to farm Expedition, Essence, Heist and Eldritch Altars.

The Expedition Currency Strategy grants access to a lot of currency items, Logbooks and the ability to craft powerful items with Rog. It is very easy to get started as you can reach 100% for your map to contain an expedition encounter.

  • Expedition Content drops Vendor Refresh Currency, Artifacts, Maps and Currency.

Requirements

  • Expedition does not have intense character requirements. The remnants can cause mobs to be incredibly tanky, and in some cases immune to your damage so take care to analyze the remnants before committing your explosives.
Voidstones: 2
Favourites: N/A
Atlas Points: 126

Set-Up

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

Map Choice

  • Tier 16 Jungle Valley Map - is the best map for this strategy. It has a unique mechanic that prevents Eldritch Altars from providing options that effect the map boss.

Map Device

  • Eldritch Influence: Searing Exarch
  • Essence - 3x Chaos Orbs: Area contains 3x Essence monsters.
  • Heist - 5x Chaos Orbs: Area contains 2x Smugglers Cache. (Alternate Tree Variant only)

Fragments

Fragments are not 100% necessary for this strategy during early progression, below are listed the recommended fragments if you have them available;

EssneceHeist
Essence ScarabExpedition Scarab of Runefinding
Essence ScarabExpedition Scarab of Runefinding
Essence ScarabScarab of Monstrous Lineage
Essence Scarab of AscentSacrifice at Dusk

Atlas Passive Tree

Legion Atlas Passive Tree

Expedition passives increase the chance for Expedition encounters to appear. They also increase the chance for them to belong to the more valuable vendors, Dannig and Tujen.

Eldritch Altars provide a constant flow of currency items.

During early progression whilst you have few Atlas Passives, you can cut the Essence and Heist from the tree and focus entirely on Expedition.

Gameplay

Rolling Maps

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 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.

4. Vaal Orbs - Use Vaal Orbs on all of your appropriately rolled maps. Some maps may transform or receive new modifiers, so weed out any maps with modifiers your build cannot run or that are no longer on a favourable layout for Legion. On average using Vaal Orbs on high tiers maps is always worth it.

Running Maps

Pre-Map - Take in a stack of Remnant of Corruption.
Step 1 - Clear the map until you encounter the Expedition.
Step 2 - Place your explosives targeting powerful remnants first, followed by Runic Monster Markers. If you are using Extreme Archaeology aim for the strongest remnants and highest density of Runic Monster markers.
Step 3 - Finish the map by defeating any left over Essences and the boss.
