In Path of Exile, the epic ARPG title from Grinding Gear Games, farming items plays an intricately huge part of your experience. You will soon become familiar with the ways of combat, currency in the form of PoE orbs and PoE currency, and of course, farming when starting out. With that in mind, you may want to know just what kind of items are worth grinding it out for, so here are a few that you will definitely want to consider during your time with this sensational free-to-play title.
Unique items and odd rare items are things you will inevitably come across and they may save you from having to buy PoE currency. The first item we’ll tackle is the Tabula Rasa robe, which can be farmed via the humility divination card found in Blood Aquaduct. This is a great place for power leveling up for Hardcore players also, which will help you farm the required cards. What’s more, it is also useful to gain XP here as there are a lot of enemies. Fortunately, that also raises the chances of dropping the card.
This item is a simple robe that features six sockets, and would normally set you back five Chaos Orb or a single Divine Orb. Interestingly, the name derives the Latin term of ‘Blank Slate’ which is essentially what this robe is. On its own, it is capable of very little, having no base or defense values. However, depending on how you choose to level it, the Tabula Rasa has plenty of potential for enhancement and can come in handy for new players who want to experiment with gems and find a suitable build.
Another one of the notable PoE items is the Elegant Ringmail. Before jumping into this item, it is worth mentioning that it will require a pretty hefty amount of rings, 60 to be exact, for you to obtain it.
The Ringmail has several variables and six sockets for you to use and has plenty of effective base stats that will prove to be quite useful regardless of the build that you are going for. Perhaps the most important of the said stats is the Maximum Resistances, which can roll up to 80%, with better rolls obtainable via the use of a Divine Orb. On the subject of the Divine Orb, if you managed to farm the previous item we discussed, the Tabula Rasa, you can sell it for a Divine Orb, which can then be used to increase your percentages with the Elegant Ringmail.
If it is weaponry is more your thing, then look no further than the Oni Goroshi. This one-handed sword can only be farmed in the Twilight Strand area of the game and will require you to reset the zone if you want to get your hands on it. To do so, you will need to use around four characters and find Hillock the Blacksmith and kill him. From there, you will come up against Uber Hillock, who will prove to be more of a challenge than the regular Hillock—which is to be expected. What’s great about the Oni Goroshi is that it has the capability of buffing attack and movement speed when an enemy is ignited, and can also pack a significant amount of fire damage. It also proves to be suitable for any build, since there is no stat requirement for you to use it.
These are just a few of the items that you can farm in Path of Exile without having to worry about spending too many of your PoE Orb or PoE currency. They can be farmed completely for free with minimal time and effort. You will soon find yourself with some unique and useful items to do with as you please, regardless of your build.
