You may already know, Path of Exile 3.1 War for the Atlas is now live! So when is War for the Atlas Xbox One released? We'll let you know as soon as we know the date. May be around December 16. However, you can buy poe 3.1 xbox currency in advance. Let's start from Abyss League. This guide is based on my own experience and research and its aim is to consider and review the best possible ways to farm valuable orbs (currency) in POE 3.1, what works and what does not? what is most efficient and what is less effective and a waste of time?


Early game tips (levels 1-68)

Path of Exile 3.1 Orb Farming Guidance and Advice - Abyss League

Basically when starting a new character you do not want to waste any time in doing anything different other then leveling up and going through the acts as fast as possible while keeping up with the level of the monsters in each area and having relevant gear. We all know that orbs can drop anywhere and anytime depending on your luck. You do not want to waste time on collecting any low value orbs such as orb of transformation, alteration, chromatics and item quality improving orbs. Strict item filter is mandatory. This will save you a lot of time (and annoyance) and will increase your chances of finding more valuable items.


What is noticeable and logical are the prices of items in the beginning of Abyss League. There are many people on Youtube giving ideas on starter builds and items that can be used during the Abyss League season and some of these guides really impact and influence the price rates of certain items. Usually these items are overpriced and in constant demand. If you are really into it or you get lucky you can take advantage of that during the first couple of weeks and sell items for much higher than it will be later on. When buying try not to spend orbs for useless causes or short term items that later on cannot be resold or will be resold cheaper. What you want to do is exchange everything into chaos and exalted orbs. The more you accumulate earlier the more you will have later. The price of Exalted orbs always goes up with time and the price of items goes down. Chaos orb stays in rather consolidated levels.

If you are starting a second or another new character, leveling up Enlighten Support gems is always a good idea. If you have any free blue or white sockets you can always fill them up with Enlighten Support gems which you can later sell for 40-300 chaos depending on the gems level. The same goes for Empower Support too.


By the level of 66-68 you probably will not have more than 50-60 chaos in value if you have not been extremely lucky. At that point if you really need to you can use the chaos orb recipe to farm chaos orbs. I personally find it a bit of a waste of time but it can be used efficiently when you desperately need chaos orbs. Always sell the items unidentified and collect them in numbers storing them well in your stash so you can pretty much optimize and organize the process of selling all of these items and make it as quick as possible and not that much of a pain in the ass. When you later advance in your mapping chaos orb recipe will become less usable.


Late game tips (levels 68-99)


I do not recommend farming pre-mapping zones because there is no point and I think it is a waste of time. What you want to do is start mapping the Atlas and level up with it accordingly. You can plan and if you feel like it will be better you can go for a Shaped strand farming somewhere between levels 75-85. The map is very straight forward and easy to clear. Provides good drops and experience but cannot compare with higher tier maps. I find tier 16 maps most profitable. Putting a vaal orb on tier 15 map can upgrade it to tier 16 which really makes a difference in the price. You can vaal all your tier 15 maps if it goes back to 14 is not a big loss anyway.


Divination cards that sell well and are profitable


Divination cards can be very profitable, especially ones such as:

Abandoned Wealth – set of 5 gives 3 Exalted orbs. One of the most exciting divination cards. The thing you should do with these kinds of divination cards however is not selling them but buying them. If you’ve found one, good. Do not sell it. Collect the whole set and then realize your profit. You can always buy cards from which sell proportionally cheaper against the poe item that will be received when collecting the whole set.




Prophecies can sometimes pay very well. Obviously some pay better in the start of the Abyss League. However, others can be a lot of fun during whole league round such as:

Monstrous treasure (one of my favorite prophecies) – the prophecy can be obtained by collecting 9 of the divination card The Valley of Steel Boxes and allows you to enter a map which instead of packs of monsters have only strongboxes of different kind and quality. To optimize the loots, you will want to use alchemy orbs and vaal orbs on the strongboxes to boost their drops. You can use all orbs you feel right to increase the content of the boxes. You want to look for suffixes such as: Contained Items are fully Linked; +(1 to 5) Chest level; Contains (3 to 8) additional Items; (30 to 60)% increased Quantity of Contained Items.


Maps to farm and sell for orbs


A strategy that can be undertaken both for leveling fast and farming fast is running the most straightforward maps such as: Shaped Strand, Shaped Beach, Shaped Gorge. To do this in the most efficient way you have to skip all other maps of the same tier. They should be blank on the atlas and not visited yet. In that way when running a Shaped Strand for example or the maps +1 or -1 tier around it the possibility to get another Shaped Strand is much higher because the chance of drop does not compete with the drop for the same tier maps as it would do if they were visited. These kind of maps are always under high demand as they are easy and fast to execute, they give a good amount of experience and good drops. Most players consider Shore to be the best map to farm at the moment and some of the old golds are considered to be nerfed a lot.


Uber Lab farming

First of all, if you want to farm the Labyrinth you need to have a suitable build and gear to run it efficiently and quickly. You can use the poelab(dot)com to navigate faster. What you have to know about the Lab is that it changes daily and the more keys you collect the better. To receive all possible keys, you need to kill Izaro without killing his lieutenants but that will make him much stronger later. There is an additional boss called Argus which drops one addition key. More keys can drop from the treasure boxes at the end. Another way you can profit from the Labyrinth except collecting the loot is by helping weaker players to go through it for the current market price of the service; be lucky and get a good enchant in the end either on your gloves, helm or boots. The enchant can make significant changes in the price of the item. Best option is to combine all: do the silver keys loots, do all bosses, help newbies pass through it, do not kill the lieutenants and kill just a fair amount of mobs which are in your way without wasting much time.


Buying low and selling high

Buying low and selling high

You can always take advantage of new players who do not know where they are yet. When I first started I did not really care for or knew the value of the orbs. I would just sell them to the vendor(such sell orbs to because they were taking too much space in my inventory… I did not know about either. The aim of this exercise it to focus on exactly that group of players which either do not know how to trade on, are not aware of it or simply do not want to buy premium stash tab to enable the feature. Believe it or not these kinds of players exist and are not that rare to find and some of them are eager to sell and the only way to sell is via the global trade chat. Most players using rarely trade through chat offers which leaves the ones mentioned above in a situation of desperation and makes them sell cheaper in order to sell faster. You can use that to purchase cheaper poe orbs and later sell more expensive and combine it with the strategy below too.


Selling more expensive during night time


During night apparently a lot of players are AFK leaving their characters online. When searching in it does not filter the ones, which are AFK or DND. When someone is desperate and tired of everyone being AFK he will be more likely to pay more for what he needs and will pay it to the one guy which is online and responds first. Such items are usually orbs of regrets, exalted orbs, orbs of fusing (gambler’s favorites), 6 links armors and weapons. Orb of fusing usually sells for 0.5 orb of chaos but during night can be sold for 1 chaos each. Orb of regret usually costs 1 chaos and can be sold during night or at high demand at 1.5 chaos or even 2 chaos orbs. Six links weapons and armors with lesser stats can be sold for the price of the better version of the item.


Change gear before boss kill


Changing the gear when a boss is on low hp with increased rarity of items found mode set can severely increase your chance of finding something much more valuable.


Do not waste time selling items with value less than a chaos orb


It is just not worth it leaving in the middle of your map to sell something which costs 1 orb of alteration or 1 alchemy. If you are not desperate for alchemy orbs there is no real point in wasting time to collect and sell those kinds of items. Instead you can try exchanging chaos orbs for the necessary poe currency but always at a price that benefits you.


Using Add-ons such as

Click on the poe trade image above to open a high-resolution version in a new tab!

Using this kind of add-on can make your trading experience much easier, pleasant, fast and efficient. It can notify you if something has been posted cheaper, giving you time to react immediately and be the first one to contact the seller and thus getting the item at the best possible price at the moment. You can resell it immediately after for a bit more expensive. Also, you can use poe Trade Macro, make your Path of Exile life much easier.



1. Never buy trash and sell trash

2. Never collect trash and waste time

3. Never sell something cheaper because you feel its urgent to get some chaos orbs

4. Be patient and take advantage when the opportunity is there

5. Always try getting the most of valuable strongboxes

6. Be aware of the demand and prices of items

7. Use the right items to enchant in the Lab

8. Run average lengths on complicated maps which you have not initially buffed on purpose.

9. Use sextants when mapping

10. Have a strategy and choose your build well in order to avoid unnecessary waste of money.
