As we can easily notice that Path of Exile having trading instead of a PoE currency, in fact, is a quite entertaining choice, and it works, to some extent. Also, it helps that Path of Exile trade for Path of Exile currency is not so limited between players, but also applies to Non-Player Character (NPC) vendors. As a matter of fact, if Path of Exile players specifically searches for items. then so do they. It’s no other than the vendor recipe system.
What Is Vendor Recipe System In Path of Exile
And I have to say that for the uninitiated; what I am saying is, which will mostly be the ones that will look this guide up. the vendor recipe system is, you know, a list of items that NPC vendors give out when you are trading in a specific group of items. It will help to know what these items are, because that lets you get those items, which includes POE Orbs, with definite certainty in exchange for items that you do not want or need any longer, or you do not find as important as the once that you are searching for.
Some certain vendor recipe items have more than just one Path of Exile item that they could be exchanged for. This offers players many methods of getting an item that they’re searching for.
Also, even though the name of the system, some vendor recipe items only just require one item. Yep, even exchanging random normal Path of Exile items in exchange for scrolls of wisdom falls under the vendor recipe system despite not asking for specific POE items. That is just because the scroll of wisdom is what the game considers as the lowest form of stand-in Path of Exile currency, and if the developers made the vendors ask for those specific PoE items in exchange for them, well that will, eventually, result in many players meet a dead end.
Cooking Up Examples In Path of Exile
In Path of Exile, there exists a very long list of vendor recipes. And you even could check out these on your own, it’s quite difficult to know which ones you could use if you don’t have the context. And even though the vendor recipe system follows some certain trends, which means you do not have to look that long list up if you already have a certain understanding of certain recipes. But, the real issue is, not all players, even the most experienced players, might notice that it is quite easy to follow at the beginning. And because of that, we will be bringing up those that are used by players often.
The very first would be the flask upgrade. Here comes the method, by exchanging three flasks of the exact same kind and quality, then you will get one flask of the same kind but much higher quality. Let me give you a for instance, if you have three colossal life flasks, then you can combine them together and eventually, you will end up with a sacred life flask. And that goes on until you get to Eternal Flasks. Or in the case of hybrid flasks, Hallowed.
And the second use of the vendor recipe system would be to lower skill gem levels. While the general rule is that the higher the skill gem level the better, it’s not the case for all of them. Some Path of Exile builds, as a matter of fact, ask a specific level of a certain skill or support gem – neither higher nor lower. Therefore, if you accidentally over-leveled a skill gem or you just can not find one with the right level, you can just sell the gem in question with an Orb of Scouring. In exchange, you will get the very same gem but with a much lower level. Just rinse and repeat until it hits the desired level. And then you can stop that.
As you can see that a vendor recipe with a much rather steep price would be the Vaal Orb. In exchange for one, you have to give up 1 Vaal Fragment and 7 Vaal skill gems. Some players might argue that it’s not worth the PoE items asked for in exchange. But, if you have a lot of Vaal skill gems that you don’t have a use for and want to corrupt a particular item or skill gem, well, that means, you might as well do this one.
If you want to change the Bandit favor that you have over another, you can do that, here comes the step that you should follow, just exchange 20 Orbs of Regret with a specific amulet. And the latter one will determine which Bandit’s favor will the resulting Book of Reform grant your character with. A jade amulet gives you Kraitlyn, An amber amulet offers you Oak’s favor, and a lapis amulet offers you Alira’s. This is quite useful for builds that require a leveling build whose chosen Bandit favor will become inapplicable as long as the endgame built can be set eventually.
In the end, if you want a quite easy method to be rich in Path of Exile, you could exchange a full set of equipment whose item levels are 61 and above for a Path of Exile Chaos Orb. It’s not exactly Exalted Orbs, however, which is considered more valuable and then gets you much better PoE items in exchange. But you know, it’s a free Path of Exile orb that you got in exchange for PoE items you did not need anymore, therefore, it’s still a profit.
Many thanks to the vendor recipe system, your life as an exile in this game does not have to be ruled by the RNG. Therefore, before you start grinding, you’d better check the Path of Exile Items you have and this nifty list to save your precious energy and time.
