Path of Exile – Ascendancy: Ascendancy Classes & Enchanments

Each time you complete the Lord’s Labyrinth, you may imbue one piece of your equipment with a random enchantment. This process overwrites previous enchantments. Completing the Labyrinth in higher difficulty levels allows you to enchant a wider range of item types.
