How to farm currency items in PoE? There are a lot of ways of earning currency items. Firstly, you must buy a premium tab for selling items. The only public tab can sell items.
How to Farm Chaos Orbs
When you sell items to an NPC vendor, you will receive certain currency items in return. These items can range from scrolls of wisdom all the way to chaos orbs. If you want to earn chaos orbs from these vendors, then you will have to follow one of these recipes.
When trading with a vendor, you will need to sell an entire set of gear in order to achieve anywhere from one to two chaos orbs.
An example of an entire set of gear can be seen within the photo below.
For a complete set, you will need a pair of gloves, boots, two rings, a necklace, helmet, belt, armor and either a single two-hand weapon or a single one-hand weapon and a shield. The trick, however, is that each piece of gear must be uncommon (yellow) and almost every piece must have an item level higher than 60. At least one of the pieces of gear must be between level 60 and level 74.
When trading all of these items as a single set, you will receive a single chaos orb. If each of the individual items has a +20% excellent quality, then you will earn two chaos orbs for the transaction.
In order to get the best bang for your buck, however, you will want to sell the set mentioned above before identifying any of the items. A full set of unidentified, uncommon, level 60+ gear will sell for two chaos orbs. If each piece of the set has a +20% excellent quality, then you will earn three chaos orbs for the trade.
As much of the loot drops in Path of Exile are randomized, this is the only sure enough way to garner chaos orbs. You will also randomly gain chaos orbs from continuously raiding different areas of the game. Another strategy for farming these orbs concerns farming maps, which will be discussed later within this article.
As far as farming the necessary gear to trade for the chaos orbs, you can find 60+ level gear in any area of level 60 or higher. Consequently, it simply comes down to progressing far enough into the game to unlock these higher level areas and then repeatedly looting for the gear.
How to Farm Exalted Orbs
While the chaos orb is generally considered standard currency among Path of Exile players, the exalted orb is far more rare and consequently far more valuable within the player market. If you want to farm for this highly sought after currency item, then you are going to have to work for it.
One of the top ways to earn exalted orbs is simply to raid for them. Burial Chamber locations are great places to raid for exalted orbs. The drop rate is still low, but these locations still provide superior odds to many other options.
How to Farm by Mapping
Through POE, farming is ubiquitous, but it has a very drop rate, so how to successfully complete map-farming in a limited time is an issue to be considered. But honestly, only the high-level characters may be more worried about it, because the map-farming is only effective in endgame. For newcomers to the game, they are more focused on defeating monsters until the characters are more stable.
First of all, you need access to the Templar Laboratory to start the map-farming, where you could place the map inside of a map device, which consumes the main item and creates a randomized instance, just like completing challenges in dungeons.
The quality of the map you find determines the drop rate, some magical, rare, unique, and high quality maps will drop more valuable items.
Keep running guardian maps over and over, which is a good way to earn Exalted Orbs, if you don’t have some, the best way is to buy directly. Those maps cost around 19-25 chaos orbs, which is quite cheap to obtain.
Keep more focus on the Increased Item Quantity modifier rather than stats, which could ensure the most amount of exalted orbs dropped, keeping 80% at all times.
If your speed to build is fast enough and have decent damage, you can safely clear from 5 to 10 guardian maps per hour, which could bring huge benefit to you, this is also the most consistent and stable way to farm Exalted Orbs.
