POE currency guide for PC, Xbox, PS4. Unlike other games, there is no gold or coins
in Path of Exile. Instead, the currency system in POE is orbs
and scrolls. Currency has two main functions: buy items
in player trading and crafting items. You can use currency in exchange for other
desired items. Chaos Orbs and Exalted Orbs are very useful
in the player trade marketplace. POE.trade is an awesome website. You can search for related trade information. Select League, input the item name and may
be input other modifiers. Clicking Whisper to copy the seller information,
and then contact to buy the item in POE. POE.ninja is another useful website for POE
currency. It has listed the lasted price for currency,
maps, divination cards, and other items. Scroll of Wisdom is the very common currency. It identifies magic, rare, or unique items,
and strongboxes. It is always recommended to keep a stack of
Scrolls of Wisdom in your inventory in order to identify items or strongboxes. Portal Scroll can create a Portal that you
return to the town of the current act. It will disappear when you return to the map. Portal is the skill gem version of this currency
and can be used unlimited times. Chromatic Orbs are primarily used to change
the colors of sockets on an item. The result is random. If you want to avoid randomness, you can use
the crafting bench to change the color. For example, At least one red socket will
cost 4 Chromatic Orbs. Jeweller’s Orb reforges the number of sockets
on a weapon or piece of armour. Body Armour and two-handed weapons have up
to 6 Sockets. Gloves, Boots, Helmet have up to 4 sockets. One-handed weapons or shields have up to 3
sockets. Orb of Fusing re-rolls the links between sockets
on an item. The color and number of sockets remain unchanged. If an item has some quality, each 1% quality
improves the result by 1%. Orb of Transmutation upgrades a normal item
to a magic item. It is often used as the first step in a long
crafting process. Orb of Alchemy upgrades a normal item to a
rare item with random modifiers. It is very useful to upgrade a map to get
more mods. Orb of Chance upgrades a normal item to a
random rarity. The resulting item is most commonly a magic
item, uncommonly a rare item. In order to get a unique item, you may need
thousands of Orbs of Chance. Orb of Augmentation enchants a magic item
with a new random modifier. This can only be used on an item with one
affix, since magic items can have at most one prefix and one suffix. Orb of Alteration re-rolls a magic item with
new random modifiers. It is widely used by all players at all stages
of the game. Orbs of Alteration are also useful for a very
large number of Crafting Bench recipes. Regal Orb upgrades a magic item to a rare
item. The current modifiers are all retained and
one new random affix is added. Chaos Orb re-rolls a rare item with new random
modifiers. Chaos Orbs are very useful in crafting and
trading marketplace. Exalted Orb enchants a rare item with a new
random modifier. Exalted Orbs are high-value currency and can
be exchanged for expensive equipment with awesome modifiers. Ancient Orb reforges a unique item as another
of the same item class. The base item type can change when the orb
is applied. Ancient Orbs do not change the inventory size
of an item. Orb of Scouring removes all random modifiers
from a magic or rare. The result degrades a normal item. Implicit modifiers, quality, sockets, and
links are not removed. Blessed Orb randomizes the numeric values
of the implicit modifiers of an item. Implicit modifier is the top value of an item
above the line. Divine Orb re-rolls the values of all random
explicit modifiers. This can be used on magic, rare, or unique
items. Only the values of affixes that have a range
of values will be randomized. Armourer’s Scrap improves the quality of armour. It can apply for Body Armour, Boots, Gloves,
Helmet, Shield. Each currency improves the quality of normal
items by 5%, magic items by 2%, and rare and unique items by 1%. Item can have up to 20% quality. Blacksmith’s Whetstone improves the quality
of a weapon. Weapons include Axe, Claw, Dagger, Mace, Staff,
Sword, Wand. Gemcutter’s Prism improves the quality of
a gem. Each Gemcutter’s Prism will always raise the
quality by 1%. Glassblower’s Bauble improves the quality
of a flask. Each currency increases normal items by 5%,
magic items by 2%, and unique items by 1%. Cartographer’s Chisel is a currency item that
is used to improve the quality of a map. Since this currency is relatively uncommon,
it is usually recommended to only spend them on normal maps with a higher level. Mirror of Kalandra creates a mirrored copy
of an item. It is the most expensive currency in POE. Orb of Annulment removes a random modifier
from a magic or rare item. Using these orbs is risky because it removes
a modifier randomly. An Orb of Regret is a currency item that can
be used to gain one passive skill refund point. Silver Coin can be exchanged for prophecies
with Navali. You can exchange them for prophecies or seal
a prophecy to create an item from it, which then can be traded with other players. Vaal Orb corrupts an item. They can greatly improve an item but they
can also change it for the worse. Once an item is corrupted, it can no longer
be modified by any other currency. Thank you for subscribing to my channel.
