Flask - Path of Exile

1. Flasks Guide

They may not be as flashy as a powerful weapon or armour item, but flasks in Path of Exile will literally mean the difference between life and death.

Flasks PoE Guide

Carefully consider your flask modifiers. They can make all the difference.

Flasks in Path of Exile are not consumable items. Unlike Scrolls of Wisdom, when you use a Flask, it does not vanish. Instead, it simply consumes a number of flask charges based on the flask you're using, and, once empty, must be refilled before it can be used again. Flasks can come in normal, magic or unique rarity, but not rare.

Usually, flasks refill as you slay monsters. This means as long as you're successfully engaging in combat, you should always have a flask or two available for use. But if you get into a spot of trouble and empty your flasks, you'll either have to carefully slay enough monsters to refill them or return to Town.

Your flasks also refill when you return to Town, so jumping into a portal is a valid strategy when you're running low on flask charges. Some flasks, such as those with the 'Surgeon's' prefix, can be refilled based on other conditions.

Flasks PoE Guide 2

It's helpful to have a mix of different flasks for different situations.

Other magic mods can enhance the amount of life or mana a flask restores, or the duration it lasts, or the number of times it can be used. Some also provide extra utilities, such as removing curses or ailments.

Carefully selecting your flasks and which mods they have is just as important as selecting which weapon to wield or passive skills to take. If ever you are struggling to survive, take a look at your flasks and see if improvements can be made. They are often a cheap and effective place to start solving character build problems.

Result Flask Recipes Notes
Hybrid Flask
  • 1x Orb of Fusing
  • 1x Life Flask
  • 1x Mana Flask
1x Life Flask of next base type
  • 3x Life Flask
The components must all be of the same base item type (e.g. Small Life Flask). The result will have the lowest item level of all components. If all three are magic, the result will be magic and unidentified. NOTE: This works only up to combining Hallowed (Level 42) Flasks into Sanctified (Level 50). Divine and Eternal Flasks cannot be produced through combination.

  • A single normal flask(not magic, unique) with 20% quality;
1x Glassblower's Bauble
  • Flasks with a total of at least 40% quality (works for all rarities)

When done for multiple instances of the recipe at once, each individual combination must add up to 40%. Ex. 19, 13, 15, 9, 17, 7 would add up to 80, but would not actually grant 2 of the resulting quality items, only 1 because the individual combinations do not add up to 40 each.

3.3 Flask Crafting Recipes

Result Recipes Notes
1x Magic Boots with 10% increased Movement Speed
  • 1x White Boots

If you use a weapon without any added damage mod, or with added damage mod of the highest tier (Flaring for added physical damage), the resulting weapon will have added damage of the lowest possible tier. If you attempt to use a weapon with added damage mod of the tier second to highest (Tempered for added physical damage), the recipe will fail.
1x Ring or amulet with +x to Chaos Resistance
  • 1x Ring or amulet
  • 1x Orb of Augmentation
  • 1x Amethyst Flask
Works on magic and rare rings or amulets that already have an explicit added chaos resistance mod. It will remove explicit mods of other types when you do it. Value obtained may be capped depending on the original jewel tier.
1x Helmet with +1 to Level of Minion Gems in this item
  • 1x magic helmet
  • 1x Orb of Alteration
  • 1x Life Flask with the suffix "of Animation"
The helmet must be magic rarity.

5. Flask Macro

Macros are only allowed if they perform one action per key press. This is why macros for logging out, /oos, /remaining, and /itemlevel are ok; those are each only one action being sent to the server. Any macros that perform multiple actions on the client is against GGG Terms of Use.

Making a macro to drink three flasks is sending three different commands with one key press, so they are not allowed.

Can I use a macro that activates all of my flasks at once?

No. The most commonly cited rule pertaining to macros is “one action per key press.”

Using a flask is considered an action – and using multiple flasks is thus viewed as performing multiple actions. To press a single button resulting in multiple actions being taken would be regarded as partially automated gameplay. That is absolutely not allowed.
