Exalted Orb Farming Guide - Path of Exile
Posted 8 months ago in Economics and Trade.
Exalted Orbs are very rare items that can be dropped from slaying monsters, chests, and destructible containers. They also drop from Arcanist's Strongboxes. The dropping level of Exalted Orb is 35. Today I am going to give you some information on how to get Exalted orbs in Path of Exile.
Divination cards trading
There are 5 Poe divination card recipes that allow you to get Poe currency called Exalted Orbs. Divination Cards drop during farming, or from special stashes in Poe. In order to exchange divination cards, you need a specific amount of a particular type of card. When you gather the required amount of cards you can exchange them in vendor located in every town. Recipes are the following:
12 x The Hoarder give you one Exalted Orb
10 x The Saint’s Treasure are equal two Exalted Orbs
5 x Abandoned Wealth give you three Exalted Orbs
7 x Alluring Bounty give you ten Exalted Orbs
5 x Emperor’s Luck — drops random type of currency (it includes Exalted Orbs)
A very good method of farming Exalted Orbs in PoE is exchanging lower grade currency with other players. The price for the exalted orb depends on the league that you are playing in. It is important to do it with players, not NPC’s. While selling your lower-tier currency to NPC, you will not get much profit.
Currency flipping is very useful when you do not want to craft gear on your own and just buy everything from other players.
It is actually quite popular to grind mobs from time to time in the Path of Exile. Exalted orbs have a very low drop rate, but can be dropped from any mob out there, but there are certain areas and mobs which should give you a far better chance of getting orbs, and definitely at a faster rate.
Typically a good place to start farming is Burial Chambers. If you already have a high-level character, you can also try farming the Uber Elder. Keep in mind that to do that you already have to have completed 20 maps, but the treasures are oh so worth it! You should also probably work on the Atlas of Worlds while at it.
You will need to make a single map over and over again. The map name is Burial Chambers. Why you have to farm this particular map? Because there is a chance to drop an item called The Doctor card. The card is needed for making the Headhunter belt. Such card costs around 20 exalted orbs. It is not the most efficient method of currency farming, but a very good one. Additionally, you gain good experience on this map, so you combine business with pleasure. This method gives you more chance of getting orbs.
Uber Elder and Guardian maps
A very popular method of farming Poe currency is doing guardian maps. For this method, you will need to save a nice reserve of guardian maps. Remember that PoE guardian maps are not always occupied by the elder guardian. When you finally run the map with a guardian, you will have your drop rate increased. You can choose not to spawn elder and keep farming the guardians, or spawn elder and get a chance of getting a lot of currency. If you reach uber elder quickly, especially early in the league, you can do it as much as possible. Every drop from an uber elder is very expensive at the early stage of every path of exile league. Farming elder will cost you around 1 exalted orb, but there is a possibility of getting 20 orbs. The PoE uber elder runs are very profitable when you going to make at least 20 in a chain. It is also very important to be sure that you can kill an elder without any problems. If not it is not worthy of spending currency for such a method.
