Path of Exile - Currency Exchange Rates

I'm aware of that link, but posts in the trade forum vary widely from it for higher gems.
Poeex is a pretty decent guestimate if you need a quick reference.

I pretty much go by:

1 Exalted = 2 Divine

1 Divine = 2-3 GCP

1 GCP = 3 Chaos

1 Regal = 1.5 Chaos

1 Chaos = 1 Regret = 2 Alch

1-2 Alch = 1-2 Scouring = 1-2 Fusing = 1.5 Chisels

1 Alch = 3-4 Jewellers = 3-4 Chance Orbs = 10-12 Alterations = 10 Chromatics

1 Blessed = Whatever someone is paying for them.

Thank you sir. Also, Jojo's trade thread was a good reference. As an example of what makes me frustrated, someone in trade was offering a lesser mana cost gem last night. Normal, not quality. I whispered and asked what he wanted. He said "offer". Which just pisses me off, because I have no idea what it's really worth. I replied with "4 chance orbs" which earned me the reply: "Really?" Then I offered 50 divine orbs, just to repay him in kind. He came back with 1 gcp, which is probably fair. I said 1 Alch instead, which got me the reply: 1 gcp. Since I don't even have a gcp, I declined, but thanked him for getting to the point.
Drives me nuts as well. Seems everyone is so scared to say what they want for an item because they have zero clue what its worth TO THEM. I really do not care what the going rate is on a piece of equipment or a gem. If I need/want it for my build then I decide what I am willing to pay for that in relation to what orbs I have in stock. I also know what I want to sell things at in relation to what I feel their rarity or worth is to me.

I think I am going to start posting stuff in here that I want to sell or trade. Anyone else up for that?

That would be sweet. The only trade threads I really like on the forums are ones that already have prices. Let's me know if I can afford it right up front. This is not exclusive to POE, there have been other games where that's true as well.

Just a heads up, do not bother sending PMs to madcow, he completely ignores you for hours at a time. Or maybe its just me... :unsure:

I actually had a friend from another game who I got into this that ignored me for hours and then finally got back to me. I think pms are just harder to notice in this game, especially if you're busy.

Yeah that's a nice idea... I pretty much pick up everything yellow but don't use a lot of it. Granted, I'm only level 25ish so my stuff isn't the greatest but I'll put up a post later this evening of what I've got.

I find the POE forum trades much easier to understand as well as I don't see myself ever trading in game, the mechanics and organization suck.

Have any of you ever completed a trade on the forums? If so how did you exchange items?

I learned something new yesterday. If you farm at a location >4 levels under your character you take a pretty severe penalty not only in experience gathering. (I knew this) but also in drop rate for currency (I did not know this). Guess I need to stop wasting time on the ledge and make some progress now.

Interesting. I observed that anecdotally last night as I did 5 or so runs and ended up with diddly squat. I had chalked it up to bad luck but that makes sense.

I wish I had found that mechanics thread I linked above a while ago. It would have saved these poor guys on here a million of my questions :). I still have not finished it and have learned and confirmed a ton of things. Edited by NewlyRetired

As you progress in content, it gets a littler better, I think. At 41, I can go 5 levels under and still make progress.

I have. Whisper them in game, pay what they want, they'll form a party and come to you in town. Pretty straightforward and easy. If they're quick and reasonable, it's nice to say so in their thread, it gives them a good reputation and bumps their thread for free.

As you progress in content, it gets a littler better, I think. At 41, I can go 5 levels under and still make progress.
Here is the exact formula I saw last night. It does not look to be level dependent, just dependent on how big the spread is between your current level and the level your are farming at. It caps though once the bad guys get to level 66.

=====================

Drop rates

There is a penalty to the chance of currency items (scrolls, orbs, etc.) dropping in areas with a monster level more than two levels lower than your character level. For each additional level that you have compared to the area's monster level+2, the chance of a currency item drop is reduced by 2.5%.

So if you are level 30 in a level 20 area, you will see 20% less currency item drops on average:

2.5*(30-(20+2))=20

A level 30 character in a level 28 area will see no penalty.

Currency item Drops are not increased or decreased in this way when fighting in areas above your level.

For the purposes of this penalty, your level is never considered to be higher than 68. Therefore a level 75 character receives no penalty in a level 66 area.

Just whisper them to see if they're on. Some threads will show when they're online. If they're not, oh well.

Hey hit me up online while playing and I can hook you guys up with some stuff if it is level appropriate. Some one can start a new trade thread at POE? Or would it be better on here?

I think it is fine on FBG to get started. Would people prefer if we started a new thread on just POE Trades or should we keep all trade talk in here?

Seems like we could keep it in here. Sorry, I don't have anything around the level you wanted, I tend to keep very good low level stuff and then stuff closer to my current level (43).

oh no problem! I have nothing myself as I sell everything I get to try and create orbs. Kind of stupid but the only real mistake was selling the unique item I could have traded for or kept for another character.

I would kill for a skill that puts some extra light in the room :) The only time I seem to die in normal is when I can't locate the damn Necromancers and I get surrounded :)

I hate them with the intensity of a thousand burning suns. What really pisses me off is when I get right next to them and try to hit them and hit the thing they've just summoned in my face instead.

I use a flame totem. It shots in the direction of the enemies and let's me know where the bad guys are hiding. Helps a lot in act 2 when everything goes black in the whole world.

Is there a stat which tracks how long you have played with a specific character?

Typing in game /deaths will display how many times you have died and /played will tell you how much time you have played that character.
nice!Is there a link that shows all of the possible / "slash" commands?

Okay, my captains of nerdistry - I downloaded this last night and I'm going to give it a go tonight. Duelist and Shadow are typically what appeals to me but ranged, magic and smasher can always be fun.Provide me some newb direction without dropping the PoE PHD knowledge on me.

Imo best thing is just pick a character and play for a little bit and get a feel. If you like it you can get as I depth as you would like. Also if you find a Brown item pm me.

Made my first real change to my character today and am interested to see how it will work out. I saved up a bunch of skill points and picked up both Iron Reflexes and Point Blank at the same time. I also picked up a nice quiver that added a good 15% of DPS to my bow which should help.I need to concentrate on health next as my pool of health is still very low.I have played 22 hours with this character and am at level 26 in act 2

Just understand that if you do it this way you're probably going to start over at some point.

Hell, I am diving in as much as possible and I am pretty sure I am going to have to start over as well pretty soon :)Nothing wrong with him seeing if he likes the game play before figuring out all of the details if he is not into that.

I don't know if you have to start over. If you have experience with RPG's, you have a pretty good idea of how to focus. I cannot say there are many changes at all I would make on my Ranger and Marauder at this point, and they are my first.

Just got a blood magic support. So the plan now is I put it on the sweep skill which also gets life on hit. So it will cost 26 life to use, but every hit gets me 25 life, so it is like a perpetual use skill. :excited: Run that with an aura and :devil:

Finished Act 1 Cruel. Merveil wasn't bad as long as I watched my health. My sweep attack generates health as long as I hit more than 1 mob, so when she started spawning mobs, I was :moneybag: I cannot wait to get a 6L and take my AOE and attach blood magic, life on hit and a crap-ton of extra damages. :excited:

It's way easier to list items via the POE site... you just click on your character, open your stash and then click on the items you want to list.

Here's My Link

ETA: If there's anything you want, just let me know and it's yours.

Never tried this. I am using chrome and when I click on an item nothing happens.
It only looks that way. If you start a thread, then open your character, start clicking on items. The code is appearing in your post, you just cannot see it because it is covered.

I am not looking for much at all from a FBG - just throw a single decent orb if you want. It is a game, ya know? :)
