What are Sextants for Path of Exile Game?

Sextants are items you find in maps. There are three tiers of Sextants, denoted by colors, which coincide with the colors of maps. White (apprentice) is the lowest tier, then yellow (journeyman), then red (master). Once you have found one, you can use it by opening your Atlas, opening your inventory, right clicking the Sextant, then clicking on the map you want to apply it to.

The Sextant will add a modifier that will be applied to either the map you apply it on, or any maps within the radius of the Sextant (which show up quite clearly when you hover the Sextant over a map). This means you can apply multiple Sextants to the same map by utilizing the maps around it. Sextants wear off after three uses, and will need to be reapplied afterwards for new modifiers.

As implied by the color, white Sextants can be used on white maps, yellow Sextants can be used on yellow maps, and red Sextants can be used on red maps. Sextants can also be used on maps of a lower tier, so a red Sextant, for example, can be applied to any map. If you’re playing a league that allows trading, you typically won’t want to use a higher tier Sextant, since they are worth significantly more. Just sell the higher tier Sextants and buy lower tier ones to use, if you are so inclined.

When people talk about using Sextants while buy chaos orbs, they usually mean that they are using four to seven Sextants for each set of three maps. This can be extremely expensive, and is only worth it if you are running very profitable maps.
