Complete PoE Lake of Kalandra Challenge Guide

By | September 8th, 2022 | Categories: Path of Exile

Every new challenge league in Path of Exile has its own theme and mechanics. These challenge leagues bring unique rewards such as cosmetics for you to collect by completing tasks and quests. Challenges and rewards go hand-in-hand in the ARPG, after all. In the case of the Kalandra League, you can earn exclusive microtransactions by completing 40 challenges. The spoils you’ll get in the Lake of Kalandra challenges are all themed towards mirrored effects; each cosmetic has separate tiers that grant specific effects. Besides that, you’ll also be granted pieces of the Kalandra Totem Pole Hideout decoration which you can put together.

Before your lips smack at the thought of all the goodies you’re about to get, let’s look at the challenges and rewards for Lake of Kalandra in this PoE Lake of Kalandra Challenge guide.

The Uphill Battle of Getting to 40

As I’ve said before, there are 40 challenges available in the league you can complete. You can aim to complete all of them, but note that the later challenges will require a ton of time and effort—especially since the endgame content of Lake of Kalandra is grueling. If you’re not a completionist, the most realistic goal you can achieve is around 30-35.
