Beginners Guide - Currency System

The currency system in Path of Exile revolves around a variety of different orbs and scrolls. Each currency item serves a specific function in the crafting and enhancement of a character's equipment, or allowing restructuring of the character's passive skill tree.

Currency items are used to pay for items in player trading.

Currency items

Currency items can be found as drops from monsters or chests, bought directly from different vendors in town, or received through the use of the vendor recipe system by trading specific configurations of items to any town vendor. Currency items play a large role in the player to player trading system, with rare orbs able to be traded for powerful equipment, or even for other types of orbs that a player might want for crafting.

Basic currency

Basic currency items are those that have no specific drop restrictions (in-game wording: non-league), such as which areas or monsters they can drop from.[1]

Currency exchange resources

Exchange rates between different currency items is largely dependent on the item's scarcity and the demand for it by players willing to trade, and differ between the Softcore League Trade, Hardcore League Trade, Standard Trade and Hardcore Trade leagues. Due to the continuously fluctuating nature of the Path of Exile economy, it is impractical to keep an updated table of currency exchange rates here. Instead, please refer to these tools and resources:

Vendor prices chart

A number of orbs are purchasable at vendors, and can thus be ranked like coins in normal currency. There are several progression tables below showing who sells what and what their equivalent value is in (Orbs of AlterationOrb of AlterationStack Size: 20Reforges a magic item with new random modifiersRight click this item then left click a magic item to apply it.
