Path of Exile – Ascendancy: The Lord’s Labyrinth & Emperor Izaro


Having completed the Trials of Ascendancy in the current difficulty level, you may enter the Lord’s Labyrinth through the Statue of the Goddess in Sarn.

The Lord’s Labyrinth is a new Dungeon that you can access through the Statue of the Goddess at the Sarn Encampment.

In order to access the Labyrinth, you must first complete the Trial of Ascendancy and it will unlock The Lord’s Labyrinth for that the difficulty.

The Lord’s Labyrinth will feature a combination of the traps that you have faced in the Trials of Ascendancy. Through the Labyrinth, you will be able to experience both two new tilesets that juxtaposes each other.

Izaro emptied the Empire’s coffers creating the Labyrinth. Some areas are incredibly opulent and exhibit fine architecture that stands as a stark juxtaposition to the deadly horrors of the Labyrinth.

The Labyrinth was once a lush, well-maintained complex. In the years since it was abandoned, it has fallen into disrepair. Once the irrigation failed, the once-fertile gardens became arid.

The Labyrinth is unique in that sense that it is ever changing. Every day, the Labyrinth’s layout will change resulting in relocation of keys, new passages and secret rooms.

While in the Labyrinth, you will face Emperor Izaro 3 times, each time it will be a new setting and require a new tactic. Depending on how you deal with what he throws at you, your future encounters will have either be easier or much harder.

When an aging Izaro retired and gave the throne to Chitus on the First Kaso of Verusi, 1319 IC, the new emperor immediately cast Izaro into the Lord’s Labyrinth and sealed the gates behind him. Twinned with the Goddess he worshipped, Emperor Izaro lives on in the Labyrinth.

As the architect of his domain, Izaro has constructed many tools to aid him in his fight against you. Each time you encounter him, the fight will evolve very differently. In some parts of the Labyrinth, he is protected by runic circles. In others, he can call upon the power of ancient statues to receive benefits.

During the Labyrinth, you will encounter Izaro three times. Every subsequent fight will be affected by your actions in the previous encounter. For example, if you fail to kill Izaro’s lieutenants in one fight, they will be back to aid him later in the Labyrinth.

Race against other players in the Labyrinth for a spot on the leaderboards for the fastest clear.
