PoE Currency Guide

You can modify a vast number of objects in Path of Exile using the various orbs, scrolls, essences, whetstones and other stacking consumables. Collectively these items are referred to as "Currency", as they are also used to trade and barter with both NPCs and other players. At higher levels you might find currencies that other players value highly. The Orb of Transmutation, Orb of Alteration and Orb of Augmentation are great items to carry and use during your journey. They can be used to upgrade normal items to magic and to reroll or change the mods on magic items, and they're common enough that you can pretty quickly replace whatever you use. Using these currencies on flasks can let you customize their behaviour. If you're in need of a damage boost, try using them on a weapon base-type that is close to your level. Sometimes a magic item with the right mods is better than a rare item with the wrong ones. 

We've listed out some of the PoE currency value list & exchange rates. You must know the value of your currency items before exchanging them to other items. In the marketplace, Chaos Orb and Exalted Orb are the standard currency items. For a low-tier currency, you can exchange for Chaos Orbs, and then exchange to Exalted Orbs.

Type Oils Effect
Blight map 1x Increased monster pack size and effect depending on the oil
Rings 2x Buffs to Towers
Amulets

Blight unique items

3x Applies the effect of a passive skill from the passive skill tree without the need to allocate it.

Blight maps can have up to 3 anointments at a time. Anointments on equipment take up the enchantment slot. Allocated passive nodes behave as if the node were taken manually. In other words, socketing a Timeless Jewel and anointing a passive node will grant the new, transformed modifiers. It will not grant the old, original modifiers.

PoE Oils Recipes

You can vendor 3 same oils to the next tier oil. For example, 3x Clear Oil = 1x Sepia Oil. Or, 3x Teal Oil = 1x Azure Oil. That is to say, if you want to get a Golden Oil, you will need to vendor 3^11 Clear Oils.
