Why You Go for Double Beyond in Terms of Map Drops in PoE?
Seriously, what's going on? I've started the league with a uber farmer and I would occasionally get map chests which yields me around 4-5 red maps(t12-t14). Today I've been doing maps all day with the new character I've leveled. I've been farming all the red maps I've gotten through the uber lab for around 7-8 hours and now I'm going backwards through the atlas. I have not progressed 1 tier higher than the t13 which is what I've had the most from the uber lab. I could only unlock 1 tier 14 map in this 8 hours. I have never seen a tier 15 map drop. I have done every shaper/elder influenced red maps using 3 fragments, 1-2 sextants, full chiseled, rolled atleast %70 quantity.
I don't even want to talk about the poe currency. After every map I see my chaos count go down without anything to replace it. Most maps I've completed with 1 chaos drop, 1 alch drop, 1-2 other t2 currencies and nothing more.
When I was doing uber lab, I could complete 1 run with atleast 6-7 keys in 10 minutes (depends on the layout). That yields you ATLEAST 10+ chaos without any enchant most of the time (way more actually, with the gems and other stuff). Lets say it takes total 15 minutes to fully complete the lab run and start a new. With that, I could have done more than 30 runs in that 8 hours. Which should get me atleast 300 chaos in return without enchants. Extract the cost of the offerings and you have around 180-200 chaos left.
Compared to the negative currency I've been getting through mapping and not even progressing, I don't even know why I should do maps anymore. I was quite happy to do all the high tier stuff with the new powerful character I've leveled using all the path of exile currency I've gathered from uber lab, this makes me pretty sad.
