Path of Exile catch-all

going to share one of my average joe money making strats here that you don't usually see listed cause it's not "hunting doctor cards" etc. But you can try hunting for doctor cards and do my strat at the same time.

I shaped burial grounds so it's t10. I unlocked the Lair map.

Shaped burial grounds is my only t10 (you can try you rluck at this for doctor cards and it's not the worst map in the world for doing legions, but not the best. Good enough, if yer good with a move speed skill.

Lair is my only T11 map.

Here's the kicker. You can easily do 200 to 300 burial grounds and NOT get a doctor card.

I've done about 30 lair maps and gotten 5 "wolven king's bite" cards (1/8 quills quiver) and have sold them all for 1 exalted orb each.

Mmmm, greater profit to Lair than to doctor card hunting for sure!

Also, if anyone has the tier 3 -# mana cost to skills workbench mod unlocked and is willing to help me out i will pay you greatly.

I'm severely frustrated at not having that yet, even tier 1 of it. I really need to craft a ring to put that on.

I actually went a different route this year and identified a trading market. I picked an upgradable unique item that is in demand due to being relatively cheap (15-20C). It is also a VERY popular choice for corruption. I was buying map/prophecy/unupgraded item for a total of 2C, running the map, and almost immediately selling the item for 15-20C depending on the resultant item's stats. I don't usually play a 'farming' style to make quick currency but this was too easy. I made 6 EX and bought my 6-link armor in about 3 hours of playing. So far this league I've found 4 items like this where the margins are pretty high. The margins vary though on most depending on final stats.

I've been trying to run Lairs all league and have dropped exactly 2 of them, hehe. I did get one card though.

Is there an end game guide you guys recommend? I just completed the story for the first time with an incinerate chieftain but after I finish the labryrinth I'm not entirely sure what to do next.

Tied for my most valuable drop with the boots from back in breach league.

That's an inspired learning gem that just dropped that's in the item slot in my currency tab.

Looks like it's worth 28 exalts today when it dropped, gonna try to sell it, used it briefly but it's just only worth it if you got headhunter too i believe so....off it goes to fund...something?

I did a thing this weekend....

http://poe-profile.info/profile/Fuzz...

In lower 80s with it, still upgrading, 48 exalts in.

video from earlier tonight at about 43 exalts in. and just below level 80

T7 glacier legion clear

Not finished yet, don't have access to + level of support gems craft yet which needs to go on bow and something for my shaped ring as well. Otherwise it's built and just gotta get another 13 levels to make it super stronk.

It is a Mathil build so building it now would cost more than it did me since i had many of the critical pieces to build this mid last week....at this point at the end of the weekend some pieces aren't available or are prohibitively costly due to the mathil effect over the weekend.

On the flip side, Mathril stream video from the weekend shows it off way better than my lame video.

What the historic jewel i'm using does, i bought several and just picked the best one for my nodes in the slot:

The one thing you really can't see in the profile is the inevitability jewels have corruptions. One prevents me from being able to be affected by corrupting blood, the other is increased global critical stike chance.

I had to re-read that Jewel's description twice to make sure it was in English. I really like this game, but I think maybe I'm doomed to be a casual.

Me too. Despite ~250 hours i don't think I have ever actually finished Act 10 even.

Timeless jewels are new. The description helps tell what the changes are made to the points around it. It's an additional layer to your build.

I beat the 4 Guardians and finally the Shaper this league for the first time. Guardians were pretty easy except for the Chimera's smoke cloud cheese and the Minotaur one shotting me once with tough map mods. Died twice on the Shaper in the final phase. I had trouble remembering that he had a clone wandering around too and got slammed.
I'm going to try to spawn an Uber elder but I'm not going to try to kill him on my own.

Happy to help anyone clear their first Uber elder. I didn’t kill mine myself the first time. Took me many tries and the right too. For my first kill ( cold vortex)

As the streamer Mathil says, when asked if PoE is worth trying: “ Asbolutely it’s a game you should dip your toes in for at least a thousand hours to see if you like it, just to skim the surface”

Timeless jewels can come from the new legion league boss battles started with emblems (100 shards can form an emblem) put 2 to 5 emblems in the map device and it starts a muti way boss battle war arena.

These jewels are basically impossible to trade meaningfully. They have tens of thousands of different “seeds” for 3 different “names” “each”.

So a Maraketh jewel can have 3 different names named in the service of and effectively unlimited iterations of the number in service ( effectively). The name of service and number can be randomized with a divine orb. The outcome of what the jewel does to nodes on your passive tree is based on the name and number out of a subset assigned to the jewel. (5 different historic timeless jewels).

What this does is personalizes your character. Effectively nobody will have the same two passive trees ever again. If you want the power of the ancient legion generals as your own you’ll collect tons of jewels and divine orbs and hunt for something that can go somewhere and do something obscenely rediculous and then build a character around it.

And, yea, lol.

The jewel above is simply nice.

My next goal this league is to find something obscene with my collected jewels and divine orbs out the wazoo and then do something with it that nobody else can do, someday...

Mathil the streamer has one like that he’s been streaming with on a nutty shield throw build. Something like 800% increased damage with lightning projectile attacks which made shield throw into and managed to get those nodes in the spot where that jewel does its thing. Finally a Mathil build nobody can copy.

This season has been crazy in terms of currency. I've had a few major drops as well (and ran shaper back to back and got two Starforges...lol rng.). Been playing a MF Tornado shot just for fun after my meta cyclone. Might start up another character but not sure what to play. Just realized that I'm also only a couple away from 36/40 challenges ... so much easier than past leagues.

I’ve just been having no luck getting timeless shards. I’ve been playing pretty regularly since league start and I still haven’t gotten 100 of any of them. I think my highest stack is around 80.

I’m running a Contagion build and have been able to 100% the monoliths since late Act 1, but most just aren’t dropping shards and when they do it’s 1-3 at most.

It sounds like your shot may not be 100% breaking the big rares and bosses at the back. This is a big problem on a non min maxed Ed/contagion build.

It’s really rare for me not get minimum of 2 up to around 20 shards from a 100% clear with a boss, avg 4-8

Great trade interactions made possible by the translator that is poe.trade

RNG went sideways tonight through a wormhole into another universe.

First yesterday this dropped:

Sold for 18.3 exalts.

Then tonight ilvl 85 fingerless silk gloves dropped, sold those for 8 ex.

then this:

With two built characters and unlimited funds even before tonights drop at this point, i bought 25k coins and am now enjoying obscene map running with the 5 slot device + every map with perandus on it.

Your league drops amaze me. I've dropped two raw exalts, and that's it! 10 Shapers, countless Elders, 2 Uber Elders and a character at 94 with hundreds of deaths and only one Watcher's Eye and no other drops worth more than 50C. I did however craft some boots that would probably sell for over 50EX, but they're mine.

I'm on the edge of starting trading, I think. My first real attempt at mapping is finally starting. I've only had two or 3 characters that could do it; this is the first one I am really trying to max out, level-wise.

(And I had a Headhunter card drop yesterday, too! Didn't know they were worth much, or even that you could trade cards. Hmmm.)

The headhunter card (The Doctor) can easily fund a character that can do all content this league. Nice one!
