How to increase the drop rate of Mirror of Kalandra?

A Mirror of Kalandra creates a mirrored copy of an item and the new item can not be modified. Unique items, corrupted items, and maps cannot be mirrored. It is the most expensive currency in the Path of Exile and the drop chance is the lowest. The drop level of Mirror of Kalandra is 35 and the drop rate is less than 0.001%. In other words, more than 5,000 hours of playtime may have a chance to obtain this currency. There are a few ways to increase the drop rate of Mirror of Kalandra. I share to you here:

1. The basic guide of Drop Rate

Players can boost their chances of getting powerful equipment and uniques with the statistics Increased Rarity of Items Found and Increased Quantity of Items Found. Rarity and quantity stats can come from player’s equipment, the support gems Item Rarity Support and Item Quantity Support, monster rarity, party bonuses, and map bonuses. The stats on the character stack additively with each other, and are subject to diminishing returns. Stats from the party bonus and monsters stack additively with each other, and are not subject to diminishing returns. The total player bonus stacks multiplicatively with the total party & monster bonus.

Drop rate Search from PoE Trade Increases
Increased Item Rarity (IIR) #% increased Rarity of Items Increases the chances of an item being magic, rare, or unique. This statistic has no effect on the number or type of currency items, scrolls, or gems that drop.
Increased Item Quantity (IIQ) #% increased Quantity of Items Increases the average number of items that drop from monsters. This includes currency, scrolls, skill gems and divination cards.

The following image shows how to search mods in PoE Trade to increase the drop rate of Mirror of Kalandra and other currency items.

2. Adds more quality to a map

Cartographer’s Chisel Cartographer's Chisel is a currency item that is used to improve the quality of a map. As the image is shown below, the 20% quality has added a 20% item quantity.

Increase Maps Quantity

3. Increase the drop rate of a map with map fragments

A player's IIQ does not affect the amount of maps that drop from enemies. However, a map's IIQ does affect the amount of map drops. Map fragments are items that can be used in a map device to open portals to various high level areas. Placing any one of the fragments along with a map into the map device will increase the item quantity of that map.

Map fragments increased Quantity of Items found Notes
Sacrifice at Dusk 5% Vaal fragments
Sacrifice at Dawn 5% Vaal fragments
Sacrifice at Noon 5% Vaal fragments
Sacrifice at Midnight 5% Vaal fragments
Mortal Grief 10% Advanced Vaal fragments
Mortal Hope 10% Advanced Vaal fragments
Mortal Ignorance 10% Advanced Vaal fragments
Mortal Rage 10% Advanced Vaal fragments
Volkuur's Key 5% Prophecy fragments
Eber's Key 5% Prophecy fragments
Yriel's Key 5% Prophecy fragments
Inya's Key 5% Prophecy fragments
Fragment of the Hydra 5% Shaper fragments
Fragment of the Phoenix 5% Shaper fragments
Fragment of the Minotaur 5% Shaper fragments
Fragment of the Chimera 5% Shaper fragments
Fragment of Purification 5% Elder fragments
Fragment of Constriction 5% Elder fragments
Fragment of Eradication 5% Elder fragments
Fragment of Enslavement 5% Elder fragments
Fragment of Knowledge 10% Uber Elder fragments
Fragment of Shape 10% Uber Elder fragments
Fragment of Emptiness 10% Uber Elder fragments
Fragment of Terror 10% Uber Elder fragments

Vaal fragments can be placed in the map device on its own to instance a random corrupted area. Adding more fragments increases the item quantity of the area, the same way it works with maps. As long as they aren't placed in the correct arrangement, a full set of fragments will open a corrupted area with a 15% increased item quantity.

The drop rate of the Mirror of Kalandra is random. Play more, you have more chances to get the currency.

Why is Mirror of Kalandra so Valuable?

  • The most valuable/rare piece of currency in the game is a Mirror of Kalandra Mirror of Kalandra.
  • It can create a mirrored copy of an equipable non-unique item.
  • The drop rate is extemely low.
  • This currency resembles the logo of the Path of Exile.
  • Like other PoE currency items, the mirror can be only used one time. That means you duplicate a rare item and the mirror will be consumed.

Path of Exile Mirror of Kalandra Use

Because of their extreme rarity, a Mirror of Kalandra Mirror of Kalandra is only used to duplicate the absolute best rare items available – the mirror will be consumed on use! Players that own these top rare items will provide “Mirror service” to players looking to use their Mirrors. Usually, the Mirror is given to Mirror service provider, the item is duplicated, and then the duplicate item is then traded back. This process typically includes a “Mirror fee”, to be paid to the Mirror service provider, as well as some exchange of collateral, so that the original Mirror owner is insured against having their Mirror stolen.

Typically, players that find Mirrors will be unable to use them properly, both because they cannot afford mirror fees to duplicate top items, and also because they have little use for having a single item that is the absolute best of its kind. It is often more economical to trade away a Mirror of Kalandra Mirror of Kalandra in order to eventually obtain many very good items, rather than using it to obtain a single item that is only marginally better.

Song of the Sirens Song of the Sirens and Reefbane Reefbane are unique Fishing Rod. You can buy these unique items from vendor with the cost of a Mirrors of Kalandra. This is not recommended, as these can usually be purchased from other players for much lower prices.

Note: Mirrors of Kalandra and Orbs of Scouring cannot be used on unique items. The only way to degrade a unique is to use a Vaal Orb Vaal Orb on it, which can turn it into a corrupted rare item.

How to use Mirror of Kalandra?

Right-click a Mirror of Kalandra then left-click your valuable item to apply it. The new Mirrored copies cannot be modified.

There really isn't any reason to use them anymore with the expensive cost. Personally I'd sell it for Exalted Orbs and buy a bunch of awesome items.
