Metadata
Item class: Currency Item
Metadata ID: Metadata/Items/Currency/CurrencyCorrupt

Vaal Orb is a currency item that will corrupt an item, causing unpredictable and possibly powerful results. Once an item is corrupted, it can only be modified by Tainted Currency or Crafting Bench. You can still craft sockets and links at a Crafting Bench by using Vaal Orbs in addition to the requirements. Once corrupted it's impossible to restore it to an uncorrupted state using an ImprintImprintRestores an imprinted item onto the original
Can't be applied to Fractured Items
Right click this item then left click on the imprinted original item to restore its modifiers. An imprint cannot be dropped or traded to other players.

Mechanics

Vaal Orbs always entail a risk: they can greatly improve an item but they can also change it for the worse. Only one of the effects listed for each type of item below may happen.

Equipment

  • No effect (other than adding the corrupted property).
  • Change one or more sockets to white sockets. This has a 1/4 chance of occurring, with a 1/10 chance for each additional socket (1/40 for two, up to 1/400000 for 6 white sockets).[2]
    • This event can most likely even occur when the equipment has no sockets and will have the identical phenotype to "no effect". The assumption comes from the Altar of Corruption where the white socket achievement could be obtained from jewellery.
  • Reroll the item into a rare item with randomized sockets, links and six random affixes. If this result is chosen, there is a 1/36 chance the item will have the maximum number of sockets and links. Considering the 1/4 base chance for the "brick" outcome, this results in a 1/144 chance for an appropriate item to become six-linked on corruption.[3] An item with Prefixes Cannot Be Changed or Suffixes Cannot Be Changed will respect the effect of those metamods, similar to using a chaos orb.[4]
  • Change a random implicit to a Vaal implicit, including if the item has no implicit by default. If an item has more than one implicit mod, it will replace one of them at random.
    • Vaal Orbs cannot force Vaal implicits onto already corrupted items such as Talismans, but other sources of corruption can, such as corrupted strongboxes.
  • Certain items have a chance to turn into another related item when corrupted. The exact chance of this occurring and how it affects the outcome distribution is unknown; however, it likely replaces part of the white socket chance.[confirmation needed]

Jewels

Maps

  • No effect (other than adding the corrupted property).
  • Reroll the item with random affixes. Rare maps will have 4-6 affixes.
    • If the map is Tier 1-15, it has a 50% chance to increase its tier by one, changing the map base type to one of the appropriate natural tier.
      • Tier 16 maps cannot be changed into a tier 17 map.
      • When a Shaped or Elder Map gains a tier, it will become a Shaped or Elder (respectively) Map base of one tier higher, even if that map isn't unlocked on the player's Atlas. This system only exists on Standard, as it is no longer part of the current atlas system.
    • If the map is Tier 16, it has a ~10% chance to change into a rare tier 16 Vaal Temple MapVaal Temple MapMap Level: 83
      Map Tier: 16
      Guild Character: >

      They will haunt these grounds for all of eternity.
      Travel to this Map by using it in a personal Map Device. Maps can only be used once.
      .
  • Reroll the map into a rare item with eight random affixes, retaining the map base.
  • Add a special Vaal implicit. Any implicit mods already on the map will be retained.
    • Certain map corruption implicits cannot appear on Blighted maps and Blight-ravaged maps; the total chance to add any map corruption implicit is unchanged, however.

In addition to these effects, all bosses of corrupted maps have a chance to drop Sacrifice Vaal Fragments or Vaal Skill Gems.

Vaal side areas

  • No effect (other than adding the corrupted property).
  • Reroll the area into a rare area with eight random affixes.
  • Reroll the area into one of the three unique Vaal side areas.

Vaal side areas can only be corrupted in your maps and only while having Lucid Dreams allocated. An uncorrupted side area will automatically become corrupted when you enter it, but it seems this does not trigger the same effects that vaaling an area does.

Gems

  • No effect (other than adding the corrupted property).
  • Add or subtract one level. Max level gems can exceed their normal maximum this way. A corrupted gem at the normal maximum will not continue to gain experience.
  • Add or subtract 1-10 quality. Gems can have up to 23% quality this way.
  • Change the gem to its corresponding Vaal Gem.

Each effect has equal weight, meaning there is 1/4 chance on each possible effect. In case the effect of quality or level is chosen, the game will roll to add or subtract the value, each with equal weight.

Chance of obtaining +1 gem level

The chance of a gem exceeding the gem level cap is 1/8 (or 12.5%)

Explanation: Since the chance of any effect is 1/4, there is 1/4 of obtaining the level effect. The game will then roll to add or subtract the value, giving it a 1/2 chance of getting the positive value.

1/4 → 1/2 = 1/8

Strongboxes

Using a Vaal Orb on a strongbox will corrupt it, either as is or after randomizing its modifiers. It will also cause items (including equipment, gems, and maps) that drop from the strongbox to drop corrupted as if a Vaal Orb was applied to each item.

Flasks

Using a Vaal Orb on a flask will increase or decrease its quality by up to ±10% from the original value. Monster reward modifiers can cause flasks to drop with up to 30% quality uncorrupted, which can be corrupted to potentially increase its quality to up to 40%.

Item acquisition

Vaal Orb can drop anywhere.

Vaal Orbs are uncommon currency items that can be dropped by slain monsters, chests, and destructible containers. They also drop from Arcanist's Strongboxes. Vaal Orbs have an increased drop rate in Vaal side areas. Vaal Orbs can be farmed by placing a sacrifice fragment in the map device, and completing the Vaal side areas.

They can be also obtained through the following vendor recipe:
