Poe currency can help us strengthen equipment and skills, so we need a lot of poe currency in the game. Many old players choose to cultivate poe currency in the game. Here are a few easy ways to cultivate poe currency.
Poe Currency flipping
As you may already know, you can actually exchange your low-tier currency all the way into exalted orbs in a shop. However, you probably shouldn’t do that. Those low-tier orbs are actually quite useful while leveling your character from the bottom up, and, moreover, you are not really achieving much by flipping currency. Not only do you waste time during which you could be questing or farming, but you also do not even get any experience out of it!
While currency flipping sure is useful, it is definitely not one of the most reliable farming methods out there. If you’ve got a few minutes to spare, you can always flip some currency that has been laying around in your stash. Exchanging extra currency is also a great idea to save some stash space if you do not want to buy extra tabs for real money.
Mob grinding for exalted orbs
Unlike many of the hack and slash games out there, it is actually quite popular to grind mobs from time to time in Path of Exile. Exalted orbs have a very low drop rate, but can be dropped from any mob out there, but there are certain areas and mobs which should give you a far better chance of getting orbs, and definitely at a faster rate.
Typically a good place to start farming is Burial Chambers. If you already have a high-level character, you can also try farming the Uber Elder. Keep in mind that to do that you already have to have completed 20 maps, but the treasures are oh so worth it! You should also probably work on the Atlas of Worlds while at it.
Divination cards trading
There are 5 Poe divination card recipes that allow you to get Poe currency called Exalted Orbs. Divination Cards drop during farming, or from special stashes in Poe. In order to exchange divination cards, you need a specific amount of a particular type of card. When you gather the required amount of cards you can exchange them in vendor located in every town. Recipes are the following:
- 12 x The Hoarder give you one Exalted Orb
- 10 x The Saint’s Treasure are equal two Exalted Orbs
- 5 x Abandoned Wealth give you three Exalted Orbs
- 7 x Alluring Bounty give you ten Exalted Orbs
- 5 x Emperor’s Luck — drops random type of currency (it includes Exalted Orbs)
As the name of this method suggests, it is primarily for high-level characters, but you should not really worry about farming exalted orbs while beginning your journey with Path of Exile. Even if some drop while you’re just clearing out mobs, you still should use them sparingly and wait till your char is a bit more leveled up.
So how to begin with map-farming and not lose hours trying? First of all, you need access to the Templar Laboratory, which becomes available after finishing Act 10. There, you need to place the map inside of a map device, which consumes the main item and creates a randomized instance, just like a dungeon in most online games. These maps, however, are a bit trickier.
The maps you can find along your journey come in different qualities, just like items. These rarities are normal, magic, rare, and unique. Maps also have their own special affixes, which make them usually more difficult, but also a lot more rewarding. The quality of a map can also be raised by using a Cartographer’s Chisel on it.
Using the above methods, we can obtain a large amount of poe currency, and when we have a large amount of poe currency, we can strengthen our equipment and skills.
