We already explained in the Path of Exile review that in this indie action rpg there is no gold or any equivalent money to buy items or trade with other players. Instead, there is a variety of orbs and other items known as currency items. In PoE, currency items have a low chance to drop -lower the more power they nave-, but they can also be obtained through the trade screens at vendors.

Most vendors offer some of the less powerful orbs at their buy screens, but there is also a wide array of secret recipes: for those you have to offer in the sell screen certain items and the vendor will offer you an orb that has a value much higher than what you would have got selling the items separately. And, luckily, here’s the compilation of such secret recipes!
- Scrolls and utility orbs (you’re here)
- Orb of Regret/Scouring, Mirror of Kalandra, Portal Scroll and Scroll of Wisdom
- Socket altering
- Jeweller’s/Chromatic Orb and Orb of Fusing
- Quality improvement
- Armourer’s Scrap, Blacksmith’s Whetstone, Cartographer’s Chisel, Gemcutter’s Prism and Glassblower’s Bauble
- Magic altering
- Orb of Transmutation / Alteration / Augmentation / Alchemy / Chance and Chaos / Exalted / Regal / Divine / Blessed Orb
Let’s start with scrolls and orbs that don’t alter items.
Orb of Regret gives a skill refund point and the Orb of Scouring turns an item into white -this is useful if you have a powerful item with good sockets and want to turn it white so you can apply some orbs into it. Mirror of Kalandra is the most powerful orb in the game and its purpose is to duplicate an item -even uniques.
