Farming Secrets: How to Quickly Earn Exalted Orbs in Path of Exile

Path of Exile

Fighting your way back to Oriath is a path all Exiles must take. Sadly, the adventure has many dangers – exploring dungeons and caves, battling great evils and vengeful ancient gods, and fulfilling NPC quests. You need Exalted Orbs to ensure a successful journey from Wraeclast.

But how do you get these prized items? More importantly, can you farm them quickly enough to progress through the adventure-laden Path of Exile? Here are some farming secrets to obtain PoE’s Exalted Orbs fast.

Watch Out for Dropped Exalted Orbs and Grab Them Fast

Defeating monsters (they’re aplenty) is one of the easiest ways to farm Exalted Orbs. You could see the prized globes fall from slain opponents.

Unfortunately, the drop rate isn’t the highest in the PoE world. The likelihood of an Exalted Orb dropping from a beast is only 0.0558%. That means you must defeat at least 181,818 monsters before an Exalted Orb drops. Not only that, but the game level should be at least 35.

You could open chests, smash objects, and turn over rocks. Exalted Orbs can also drop from these objects. It’s not the most efficient, but this trick should help you start the Exalted Orbs farming.

However, other objects can fall from slain monsters, turned over rocks, and smashed chests. You will want a strict loot filter to pick only valuable items. Otherwise, you will fill your bag with “useless” things with no Exalted Orb.

Collect and Upgrade High-value Gems to Trade for Exalted Orbs

Seasoned PoE players attest to this trick for farming Exalted Orbs. It can take a while, but the results are better than a Hail Mary Exalted Orb falling off a dead monster. This trick requires collecting and analyzing Skill Gems. You could check online forums and PoE websites for the highest-value Skill Gems.

These gems have attributes, and their level is the most important consideration. The higher its level, the closer you are to trading it for an Exalted Orb. Unfortunately, high-quality Skill Gems are rare. So, you’ll start at the lowest.

You can increase the quality of a low-level Skill Gem to +20% by using Gencutter’s Prism. Next, equip the upgraded gem in your gameplay to boost its level. With the gem at its maximum level, you can corrupt it with the Vaal Orb to further increase its value.

Look for other Path of Exile players and trade your upgraded high-value Skill Gem for an Exalted Orb.

Buy Exalted Orbs

Exploring Wraeclast’s vastness is fun, making you an adventurer, defeating monsters, smashing objects, and rising through the ranks. Unfortunately, Exalted Orbs don’t come easily. And while collecting and upgrading gems to trade is faster, some players cannot wait. If you’re this PoE adventurer, buying Exalted Orbs is the quickest way to earn these treasures.

You can search safe sites where you can buy PoE Exalted Orbs. For example, some gaming sites can offer a 10% discount on Exalted Orbs. That’s great savings.

With these Exalted Orbs, you could modify and upgrade rare items to boost your gameplay. About a hundred Exalted Orbs is enough to propel your character to Tier 9. That’s an impressive boost without needing to defeat millions of monsters or upgrading and trading gems.

You will want to research discount offers, though. And that means staying updated with the latest buzz in the gaming world. For example, did you know you can get some of the best turn-based RPGs with a limited budget?

Farm Divination Cards

Buying Exalted Orbs is the most efficient way to progress through the Path of Exile gameplay. Unfortunately, some players might prefer the old-fashioned, from-the-ground-up path. Here’s another trick you could employ if you wish this route.

Exchanging Divination Cards for Exalted Orbs is another way. For example, you can trade ten The Saint’s Treasure divination cards for two Exalted Orbs. You can acquire these cards in Alleyways, Bazaar, Arcade, The Slums, Port, Ghetto, Arsenal, Precinct, The Marketplace, The Imperial Fields, and The Grain Gate.

You can exchange a dozen The Hoarder divination cards for an Exalted Orb. You can check the Hoarder from The Harvest, Vault, The Belly of the Beast Levels 1 and 2, and The Rotting Core.

Five Abandoned Wealth divination cards are worth three Exalted Orbs. You can take your adventure at the Arsenal, Precinct, or Mao Kun to collect and trade these cards.

Combine Exalted Shards to Produce an Exalted Orb

This PoE Exalted Orb farming method can be challenging and time-consuming. The goal is to collect random items of identical value or influence. For example, a complete set of identical-value random items can get you two Exalted Shards. If you’re into unidentifiable random objects, a collection of these can earn four Exalted Shards.

Shards are like puzzle pieces to an Orb. You can combine several Shards to produce an Orb. For instance, you can obtain a pair of Exalted Orbs for every 20 rare Shaper or Elder items. 

Trade PoE Currency

The last method for farming Exalted Orbs in Path of Exile requires exchanging lower-tier in-game currency for a Chaos Orb. Because Orbs are PoE currencies, their value fluctuates. You can trade 70 Chaos Orbs for a single Exalted Orb, although some gaming sites can offer a better deal.

Final Thoughts

Progressing through the PoE gameplay and re-establishing your place in mainstream Oriath society is easier with Exalted Orbs. Unfortunately, farming these precious commodities can be downright frustrating. Although some players might consider buying Exalted Orbs instead of farming the globes a form of cheating, it’s your money.
