Everything that You Should Know about Path of Exile Currency
What makes Path of Exile really different from other games is its currency system. The currency system in Path of Exile revolves around a variety of different orbs and scrolls. Each currency item serves a specific function in the crafting and enhancement of a character's equipment, or allowing restructuring of the character's passive skill tree in the case of the Orb of Regret.
There is no gold in the game and all currency is in the form of orbs that can create or alter all items of the four rarities: normal, magic, rare or unique. Currency items can be found as drops from monsters or chests, bought directly from different vendors in town, or received through the use of the vendor recipe system by trading specific configurations of items to any town vendor. Currency items play a large role in the player to player trading system, with rare orbs able to be traded for powerful equipment, or even other types of orbs that a player might need at the time for crafting.
Quality Enhancing Currency
These currencies perform in similar manner. Every item, aside from jewelry, can be improved to a +20% quality. When using one of these orbs on an item, you will gain +5% quality if the item is normal, +2% quality if it is magic and +1% quality if it is rare.
Blacksmith’s Whetstone – Improves the quality of a weapon. Only affects the physical implicit damage of a weapon and not the explicit properties.
Armourer’s Scrap – Improves the quality of an armour. Only affects the implicit property of a gear piece, not the explicit properties.
Glassblower’s Bauble – Improves the quality of a flask, extending its duration.
Cartographer’s Chisel – Improves the quality of a map, increasing its overall quantity modifier.
Gemcutter’s Prism – Improves the quality of a gem. This can have different effects, depending on the gem.
Creating and Modifying Magic Items
These orbs carry low value and are best used to re roll gear and flasks while leveling.
Orb of Transmutation – Upgrades a normal rarity item to a magic item with a random affixes.
Orb of Alteration – Re-rolls a magic item with new random affixes. Could only roll a prefix or suffix, or both.
Orb of Augmentation – Adds the missing prefix or suffix of a magic item.
Creating and Modifying Rare Items
These orbs carry medium to high value and are best used on gear found later in the game or to trade for better gear.
Orb of Alchemy – Upgrades a normal item to a rare item with a random amount of affixes.
Regal Orb – Upgrades a magic item to a rare item, retaining the affixes on it, and adding one more random one.
Chaos Orb – Re-rolls a rare item with new random affixes. Just like an alteration, it can roll any number of affixes. Between 1-3 prefixes, and 1-3 suffixes.
Exalted Orb – Adds an affix to a rare item, as long as it has an open affix slot.
In the above rare items, it is recommended to save chaos and exalted orbs because they carry a lot of value and should not be used for crafting low level items. Chaos is best save for end game crafting and crafting map items. Chaos is also one of the main trading currencies for buying all types of items.
Creating and Modifying Unique Items
Orb of Chance - Upgrades a normal item to a random rarity. This means the item could become a magic, rare or unique item (if there is one of that base item type). This is the only way to craft a unique item other than finding one as a drop or trading for it. The chances of rolling a unique is generally very low, but worth trying if it is a valuable unique.
Orb of Scouring – Removes all properties from an item, returning it to normal rarity.
Blessed Orb – Re-rolls the implicit property of an item, regardless of the rarity.
Divine Orb – Re-rolls the explicit properties of an item, regardless of the rarity.
