Looking to strike it rich in PoE’s new league? Here are some helpful tips for making currency in Path of Exile and what you can do to get rich in Ritual League!
It’s no secret that the Ritual League is finally here in Path of Exile. The new challenge league offers a great bit of fun for players willing to dive in. From a plethora of new content to breeze through to a wealth of new items and in-game mechanics to explore – there’s a lot to cover.
But the real fun in ARPGs like this is the farming though, let’s be honest!
The insane amount of loot and constant currency dynamics in the game is why you really sink all those hours into PoE. And the loot you stash can either be used to upgrade your character or even turned into in-game cash to further fuel your spelunking and adventures.
Now, when it comes to loot and currency – POE actually has a really interesting system where the currency items in the game are all deeply tied to the crafting system.
While this could seem like a big economical hazard – through constant adjustment, GGG has kept hyperinflation at bay for the most part. In all honesty, the system is rather ingenious, and it gets more fun to play with each and every expansion that sees the light of day.
And with the recently launched PoE League, there’s a wealth of new endgame content to try, and of course, loot to be found. So with all that in mind, here are some tips to help you make solid currency in Path of Exile: Ritual League.
Get A Good Loot Filter
Getting a good bankroll going in PoE starts with knowing what to pick up.
You’re going to get showered with loot this League, and with the Ritual mechanic, there’s going to be a lot of different items to sort through.
Thankfully, we’ve got access to PoE loot filters to help remedy this issue!
Having a strict loot filter can easily help you figure out what’s good and what’s junk on the fly. However, in all fairness, the stricter stringent settings can definitely throw some newer players off.
These stricter filters are meant for racers and top-end players who already know what they want without question, and they only rarely stop to pick up anything else. On the other hand, most players will instead opt for a happy middle ground that highlights both the super high-end drops, as well as the decent stuff that might be worth your while on the come-up.
Study The Market
On the topic of picking out the treasure from amidst the trash – knowing what builds are popular in the current league can really help you get a feel for what you’ll need to highlight on your filter.
That’s where a site like POE.Ninja comes in. This fan-site keeps tabs on the POE economy, taking regular snapshots of item trading and currency values to give players a view of the health of the economy in Leagues and Standard.
At a glance – there’s plenty of unique items that are trading heavily, like Carcass Jack and Rumi’s Concoction, these can fetch a pretty penny if you’re selling earlier in the league.
And as long as you’re playing the game consistently, you should have plenty of loot coming your way.
Make Use Of Vendor Recipes
The currency gained from Vendor Recipes is a reliable way for Solo-Self-Found (SSF) players to rack up some extra currency for crafting.
The most useful of these PoE vendor recipes, and the easiest to get reliably, is the Chaos/Regal Orb recipe. By trading in a full gear set of rare boots, gloves, belt, two rings, an amulet, chest, helmet, and either two one-handed weapons or one two-handed weapon, you can get one of the currency items.
If the gear’s piece-wise item level falls between 60 and 74 – the recipe will grant a Chaos Orb. Item level 75+ sets will grant a Regal Orb.
Use Ritual Vessels To Improve Your Maps
The new PoE League mechanic offers a fun way to juice your maps for added drops and mob density. The Ritual Vessels can be the key to incredibly powerful maps with tons of enemies and insane drops in them.
Be careful though, as these increased packs and stronger mobs can be dangerous. But with making currency in Path of Exile, having more things to kill generally means more loot.
You can slot up to four Ritual Vessels along with a map inside your Map Device, with each one having its own impact.
Make sure to read the descriptions of what each Vessel does before using it though, some can be more dangerous than others, especially if they add enemies you’re not prepared to fight.
Don’t Skip Old League Mechanics
Delve and Heist are some great sources of loot in this game. And even though the new Tribute Rewards give you some great crafting bases and other awesome drops – raw Currency rewards in POE are always good.
Hunting down Sulphite is a pain for many players too, and there’s even an informal player economy out there trading access to Sulphite Maps and Scarabs.
The Scarabs in particular from Betrayal League are a great source of income via player to player trading. GGG also added the newer Winged Scarab tiers, making these even more valuable.
So if you were going to focus on older content, anything from 3.0 onward is a pretty good bet when it comes to making absolute bank in PoE.
Closing Thoughts – Just Have Fun
At the end of the day – it doesn’t matter how efficient a player you are or how much of the game’s content you really min-max, as long as you’re having fun.
Find something you like and enjoy the crap out of it – because you can almost always find a way to turn it into a profitable endeavor in Path of Exile.
And don’t be afraid of coming back after taking a break to try something new!
You have plenty of time to play in Ritual League, and infinite time to play in Standard. Heck, you might even want to check out your old Standard stash and see if you have any extremely valuable items with Legacy rolls.
Legacy items are items that can no longer drop in the game or ones that have modifiers that can no longer roll. These are some of the rarest and most powerful items in the game for crafting. If you played a lot in previous leagues, you’ve got a fair chance to have a few of these lying around.
And with that – we wish you luck on your grind, exile! Let us know about your tried and true PoE money-making methods in the comments below.
