How to Get So Many Orbs in Path of Exile?

From my experience most of the players that are still new to the game have no idea what to do with certain PoE Currency. With Path of Exile looting system it is highly unlikely, but possible, for low level players to loot items like Exalted Orbs and ruin them by “upgrading” worthless equipment. Majority of those players unwittingly dispose of currency that would let them finish the story mode on Merciless difficulty and start mapping in PoE.

I play at least 6 hours a day, so I know for a lot of people you may have to take my advice. From my experience most of the players that are still new to the game have no idea what to do with certain PoE Currency.

Here is my opinion after leveling 3 characters to 80+ and obtaining (and spending) around 100 exalts across all 3 chars. How to disregard witches, acquire currency.

Don't focus on orb farming. I have run with people who have 250+(sometimes much higher) IIQ and lots of IIR, and the orb drop rate does not seem to be noticeably higher than running a regular group and clearing mobs much faster. getting those alch/fusing/chaos at a slightly faster rate is not what makes the wealth pile up.

It's ALL ABOUT finding decent gear and setting up a shop on the forums. Trust me, if you are trying to use trade chat for SELLING anything other than amazing uniques / GG gear, you are going to have a bad time. I have many pages of activity, but even more of it comes from people who don't post in the thread, they just whisper me in game and ask for something. I would say I average around 1-4 gcp a day just from the shop. Make sure you keep your shop updated. As more and more people use poe.xyz , you will get more and more whispers if the gear is decent.

All you need is that one decent drop to get the ball rolling. Have hope and keep farming. Maps are your best bet, even lvl 66 ones (put on some IIR or IIQ if you want for lower lvl maps).

Don't waste currency on useless* things. I am not a good follower of this rule but it will help you a LOT if you adhere to it. DO NOT go on tilt and blow 10 chaos on that ilvl 60 chest piece. Do not spam alterations on lower than ilvl 70-74 items, don't alch every onyx amulet you get, etc.

-I estimate if I didn't waste my currency like this, I would have about 10 extra exalted lol. It's amazing how using 1 chaos is so unnoticeable, but using 10 is about 3 gcp you could have saved or just bought an item from the forums with.

If you need upgrades always use the item indexer first to compare prices.

Another way is if you have a lvl 68+ map, you can open a public party with a 2 alteration buy in or something. I have seen this done in party tab, but don't know how effective it is.

I hope you liked this article, and thanks to it you can remove some of your bad habits when casually playing PoE :) Also if you are more experienced player and have some other ideas and efficient usages for the Orbs above please let me know in comments.
