Path of Exile

POE Items: A Guide to Prophecies

Ever since Path of Exile: Prophecy came about, many mystical things have been happening to the men and women who were banished to Wraeclast. For a little bit of silver, players can receive prophecies, conditions that have to be fulfilled in order to trigger a particular occurrence, from Navali. And for extra pieces of silver, these prophecies can be turned into one of those POE items, and then traded with other players.  There are many different types of prophecies; all of which are given at random, and some bring a lot more good fortune than others.

There are different types of prophecies. There are the Master Mission prophecies, which grants players extra reputation upon finishing a master mission; Crafting prophecies – as the name suggests, these prophecies the result of the usage of crafting POE items; Fated Uniques prophecies, which upgrade unique items into entirely new and much better version of themselves; Encounter prophecies, which grant you a reward upon encountering a particular mob; and Prophecy chains, which subjects players to a series of quests that yield rewards.


POE Items: Prophecy Guide

Like what’s been previously said, some prophecies are more helpful than others. And to help you in your quest, here are a few of the most helpful prophecies:

  • Crafting Prophecies:
    • Fated Connections – with a single Jeweler’s Orb, an item will have six sockets and six links.
    • Trash to Treasure – a normal POE item becomes a unique one with a single Orb of Chance
  • Fated Uniques – because of the sheer diversity and specificity of this particular prophecy type, there is no one best Fated Uniques prophecy.
  • Encounter Prophecies:
    • The Singular Spirit – a slayed Tormented Spirit will drop a random unique item.
    • Nemesis of Greed – a rare monster with the Inner Treasure modifier will drop two unique items instead of one.
    • The Mysterious Gift – selling five random unique items to a vendor will give you a mystery box. When opened, it will become a random unique item. The level of the resulting item is equivalent to the lowest-leveled item that you sold.

There are many other Prophecies out there, so if you’re looking for a Divine Orb or an Orb of Fusing, you’ll certainly find one with these prophecies soon enough. And now that you know how prophecies work, it’s about time you determine your own future, exile.

POE Currency: Full Set for Orbs? Yes

If money makes the world go round, then orbs do the same thing in Wraeclast, as they serve as the unofficial POE currency for the player base. It’s what they shell out when buying items from their fellow players, and what they receive when another player buys from them. Therefore, it’s important for players to gather as much of that particular item type in the game.

POE Currency: Gathering Orbs

There are many kinds of orbs, and they all serve a different purpose, so game-wise, they are all necessary. But in the eyes of players, they are not created equal. Some are worth a lot more than others, and these ones are those that yield effects that are sought after by many of Wraeclast’s banished adventurers. Two examples of these would be the Chaos Orb, which gives new properties to a rare item at random, and the Regal Orb, which upgrades a magic item to a rare item. There are many ways to get these two orbs, and one of them includes having to buy POE currency. But according to Youtube Channel LiftingNerd Gaming, this is perhaps the easiest way to gather them:

To get a Chaos Orb, you need to sell a full set of level 60 rare equipment items to an NPC. That would be two rings, an amulet, a belt, a pair of gloves, a pair of boots, an armor, a headgear, a shield or another off-hand gear, and a weapon. Do note that for the off-hand, quivers do not count, and adding a quiver to the complete set will not yield any extra reward. To get two chaos orbs, you just have to do the exact same thing, but this time you have to sell a full set of unidentified level 60 rare equipment. If you want a Regal Orb, same rules apply – one full set is to one orb, one unidentified set is to two –but you’ll be required to give a level 75 rare full item set instead.  See? Easy POE currency.

POE Buy Currency: Putting Them To Use

While it might be a shame to sell an entire set of unidentified rare gear because it might be what you just need, it’s not actually bad of a deal. Because instead of leaving it up to fate, you can earn Chaos Orbs much faster instead, and then buy from other players the particular item that you’ve been eyeing.

So, now that you know how to easily farm POE currency, you can now buy what you want or need, or sell it to those who POE buy currency. “Happy” and bountiful adventuring, fellow banished.
