In Path of Exile, some players very confused on what the best way to spawn the bosses that drop shapers orbs is. Some collectors of poe exalted orb said that they have done tons and tons of maps that were shaper influenced to expand elder influence but still no boss spawned to drop it.
So the map starts blank. Then shaper influence appears (stars). Do these maps. More shaper influence will appear in higher tier maps. Do those.
Then elder influence will appear (grey blob). You want to make elder influence spread. Do this by attacking any shaper influence adjacent to the blob. When the boss in the shaper influence map is defeated, the elder influence will spread.
Keep doing this to grow the elder blob. When elder blob grow to certain sizes, memory fragments will appear. At higher sizes like 20, elder will spawn with his four guardians. Defeat the guardians and then elder to erase the blob and start the cycle over.
Elder spawns on white map is white elder, yellow map is yellow elder, and red map is red elder. Elder on shaper map is uber elder. You can collect memory fragments 1-10 from other people’s atlases, but 11-15 have to come from your own.
It’s just based on the number you have. A map will have a blue border around it when it contains a memory fragment. The only thing that determines the number of the memory fragment is your current quest line. For instance, my first memory fragment was from a T6 map, but it was memory fragment I.
Likewise, if you find someone running a memory fragment 9 map, your mem fragment will be the level of your questline, so you may get a memory fragment 4, even though he’s getting a 9. And for mem fragments higher than 10, it has to be on your own atlas.
Hopefully the above guide will be helpful to you. If you do not want to lag behind others due to lack of orbs, you can buy poe currency on https://www.u4gm.com/path-of-exile.
