Blog: Escalations, How Do They Work?

Blog: Your Friend the Token

The following is a work in progress (WIP) to create a new player guide for Monster Escalations for Pathfinder Online. The goal is to make a public document that is accessible to new players and compiles information found in blogs, forum posts, recorded chats/videos, voice communications and in-game chat that has been released over the last few years.

First is list of Monster Escalations classified by Tier as of the current game version, then will follow over time information about each escalation with regards to monster types encountered, loot, strategies & tactics to fight them, recommendations on ammo, consumables, armor selection and other useful information.

Feedback and suggestions welcomed. smile

Where can we find those escalation hexes?

These are the "lion" and "castle" hexes found on your in game map.

There are also "monster home" hexes with fixed monster escalations, but I don't have the list on hand.

1. Go to Harad's PFO Atlas:

2. Click on the item "Escalation hexes".

3. The darker red/orange hexes are home hexes. Left clicking on them will reveal the type of monster that has a home there.

Don't see in the list the "Bandit Raid" (The Black Snake Gang believes strongly in the Six River Freedoms, particularly the part saying You Have What You Hold)… but maybe bandits were all killed.
