Re: Path of Exile - Guide and Tips

We got 18 inches here a couple of years ago, which is a lot for the middle of Missouri. I put some pics in the weather forum. I hear you about hurting after all that shoveling,it took me hours just to get a path to the street from my door. As much as I'd like a snow day to play PoE I don't know if I want that much to happen again any time soon. A friend in Albany says they're expecting something like 20 inches.

Started playing last night. So far I have been keeping all mats / orbs ect. I am also only picking up blue items or quality items for sale. Does anyone have any better tips on how to distinguish loot? Also, someone mentioned in-game that there are vendor recipe sales, such as a 3-color linked item will give you an orb, or a ring + orb will sell for a different type of ring. Anyone have better info on this?

»en.pathofexilewiki.com/wiki/Vendor_Recipes

This is a recipes list for ya. Just selling items as you get them will not get you the best orbs in return. Make sure you try to sell items so it fits what you want.

What I try to do is pick a orb that I want to work on, and sell items to match that orb for a while. Get a few of them, then move on to the next.

Stash Tab Bundle is a great item to buy if you really get into it. Items like Chaos Orb's can take a lot of saving and room up in your stash.

At work, any way to get a copy/paste? I normally show support for games like this though a transaction, even if I don't stick around, kinda like a tip for doing well. I may just get the tab bundle while they are on sale.

Another tip, most may know this but have seen people ask about it in game.

You dont need a skill always on your hotkeys to have them work. I bring this up due to later on when you start possibly running alot of auras.

You can switch a key to an aura, then activate the aura and then remove it from your hotkeys. So i use one key to enable the 3 auras i currently run, then switch it back to another skill.

As long as you dont die, the auras will always be on. They wont show up when youre in town but as soon as you head back out in an instance they will be on.

I spent 45 minutes last night reading skills. Are the level up points all passives for all classes?

Yes, you can go anywhere in the passive tree with any character.

Stat caps:

- Physical reduction: increased to 90% in patch 0.9.7
- Evade: 5%-75% (0% with wavering stances). Max arrow dodge not tested. Should be 75.
- Chance to hit 5%-95% (100% with resolute/unique item)

All of the above are calculated upon armour/evasion/accuracy and relative to each monster. The % displayed is only based on the default value on your level

- Block 75%. Spell block maximum not tested. Should be 75 too.

-Dodge and spell dodge are separate from evade, max are 24% and 20%

- Resist: base max 75%, with certain passive 81%, with resist flask 91%, with an unique for cold resist: 96%. Chaos resist can reach 100% with Chaos Inoculation
- Crit chance: 5%-95%
- Crit multiplier: no max, stack as much as you want.

- Item find (quantity): max around 200%, depends on unique/combination
- Magic find (rarity): many unique provide huge bonuses for this so i'm not sure. It should be about 400-500

Awesome, thank you.

Anyone have an updated chart for orb values? The one we have hear is outdated.

»exilebuilds.com/

Decent (new, but appears to be ramping quickly) web site with different builds, all separated by class and ranked individually.

Still too new to call, but a decent launching point for a build you're interested in.
