Gwennen offers a gambling service. Instead of buying items, you get an item by gambling. Normally, you will get a magic item, sometimes it may be a rare item. Rarely, you can get a unique item. If you are lucky enough, you may gamble Leather Belt for a Headhunter Headhunter.

You will also notice that, in some cases, you find may get a worse item.

Exotic Coinage Exotic Coinage refreshes Tujen’s inventory to a new set of items appropriate for your character level. The price of Exotic Coinage Exotic Coinage is expensive. It drops from the chest or monsters at the Expedition encounter. Sometimes, refresh Dannig’s inventory and you may find an Exotic Coinage Exotic Coinage there.

Dannig offers an Artifact exchange service. It is a useful source for Tujen’s trade currency items.

PoE Tujen Example

2.4 Rog

Buy an item from Rog, then upgrade it or take it directly. The cost of an item includes a purchase fee and an upgrade fee.

If the upgrade result is not good, you can skip it, then get a new upgrade. For example, skip “Reroll Suffixes 6 times, keeping the best outcome“, it may get “Reroll Suffixes 10 times, keeping the best outcome.

Scrap Metal Scrap Metal Refreshes Rog’s inventory to a new set of items appropriate for your character level.

PoE Rog Example

Burial Medallion Burial Medallion refreshes Dannig’s inventory to a new set of items appropriate for your character level.

PoE Dannig Example

3. Expedition Logbook

Find an Expedition Logbook Expedition Logbook, craft its mods like a map, bring it to Dannig and choose a location for your next Expedition. These Expeditions are much larger than regular ones and harbour many mysteries to explore, if you dare.

How to use an Expedition Logbook

Just like how a Blighted Map was one giant Blight encounter with no natural monsters, the Expedition you go on from a logbook is one giant Expedition.

Expeditions from logbooks are not only different because of their large size, but because there are special objects that you can interact with using the explosives. For example, trees that contain monsters or items, passageways that reveal chests or bosses, and so on. Speaking of bosses, there are some formidable ones for you to seek out, and a set of valuable new unique items and base types that can only come from Expedition content.

While planning your chain of explosives in a Logbook Expedition, you should consider detonating various destructible objects. Such obstacles might be blocking secret passages leading to ancient, terrifying bosses and their valuable treasures.
