Buying PoE Currency from Vendors

Most orbs are purchasable from vendors, and can thus be ranked like coins in normal currency. There are several progression tables below showing who sells what and what their equivalent value is in a measurable orbs. Instead of using the sell window, one must click “Purchase Items” when talking to a vendor. These are not technically recipes, but are included here for convenience.

Currency items that have shards/fragments are italicised.

Comparison with player market

The set vendor prices restrict the possible exchange rates in the player market; for example, a Chromatic Orb Chromatic Orb will never be worth more than 3x Jeweller’s Orb Jeweller’s Orb on the player market. However, this holds only in one direction; for example, 3x Jeweller’s Orb Jeweller’s Orb is worth much more than a Chromatic Orb Chromatic Orb on the player market. Generally, only the vendor rates 2x Orb of Alteration Orb of Alteration : Jeweller’s Orb Jeweller’s Orb and 4x Jeweller’s Orb Jeweller’s Orb : Orb of Fusing Orb of Fusing are even close to the player market values.
