Path of Exile: How to Use Blood Altar

Beastcrafting is a bit of a puzzling mechanic, requiring the usage of a Blood Altar, though without explaining how to do that. Here are all the steps required to master this process.




Blood Altar is a special object found in the Menagerie that allows you to craft powerful items using captured beasts. But with the number of actions required to properly use it, a lot of players might feel a bit overwhelmed.

So, here are all the steps required to use the Blood Altar.

Using the Blood Altar in Path of Exile

To use the Blood Altar, you’ll first need to unlock the Menagerie area.

This requires a trip to the Riversides in Act 2, where you’ll need to find Einhar and complete his quest “Einhar’s hunt”.

It’s a fairly simple mission – all you have to do is hunt a few beasts in the area. Once you’re done, talk to Einhar and he will give you access to the Menagerie, where all the beasts you’ll capture are going to be stationed from now on.

Oh, yeah, did I just say something about capturing beasts?

Capturing Beasts

In order to use the Blood Altar, you’ll need to sacrifice beasts you have captured. Depending on the item you want, you’ll need a different set of beasts, though in most cases these are going to consist of one specific Red Beast and three Rare Beasts of the same species.

Capturing them requires nets – you can either buy those from Einhar or get them as loot drops. Then, you simply throw the net at the monster and deplete its health.

Rematch with the Beasts

Once you’ve gathered all the necessary beasts, head back to the Menagerie and approach the Blood Altar.

Then, simply choose the recipe that you wish to craft. Now, the 4 beasts you’ve gathered are going to be released for you to fight them again.

If you’ll die now, they will escape and the recipe will fail. But if you win, you’ll get the desired item! Keep in mind it’ll have the same level as the strongest beast you’ve fought during the crafting process.

Terraria: How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update

The 1.4.4 update for Terraria introduces a handful of new critters into the game that you can find in various locations.





There have been quite a few additions to the 1.4.4 update of Terraria. One of these additions is the new critters that you can find in various locations throughout the game.

In this guide, we’ll have a look at what those critters are and how you can find them.

How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update in Terraria

There are around four new critters that were added to the game in the 1.4.4 update. They’re as follows:

The Stinkbug is a tiny, flying critter that can spawn in the Forest biome. It’s quite easy to catch using a bug net, and you can use it as bait with a 10% Bait Power. Apart from that, you can also combine it with a Platinum Broadsword in order to create the Flymeal sword at a Honey pool.


The second critter is the Toucan which is a bird that can spawn on the surface, particularly in the Jungle biome. It has very little HP and zero defense, so if you want to catch it, you need to use a bug net. If you’re not careful, you can easily kill this bird due to its low health.

You can keep it inside a Toucan Cage (combine it with a Terrarium) and use it as decoration. However, do keep in mind that the Toucan will no longer be able to get outside of the cage after that.


Cockatiels come in gray and yellow variants, and you can normally find them in the Jungle biome, the same as the Toucan. Also, they have very little health with no defense, so using a bug net to capture them is a must.

As with the Toucan, you can use them as decoration by creating a Cockatiel Cage by combining your captured Cockatiel with a Terrarium.


Lastly, we have the Macaws which share the same spawning point as the previous two birds. They also have the same stats and can be placed inside the Macaw Cage to serve as decoration.
