The Hand of Phrecia: Empowering Your Auras in Path of Exile

The Hand of Phrecia, a unique pair of Mesh Gloves in Path of Exile, caters to characters who utilize non-curse auras as a core aspect of their build. Here’s a detailed breakdown of its mechanics and how it bolsters your aura effectiveness:

Defensive Boost:

  • Provides a significant increase in both Armour (50-70%) and Energy Shield, enhancing your character’s physical and elemental defenses.
  • Grants +(10-15)% to all Elemental Resistances (fire, cold, and lightning), further strengthening your defenses against elemental attacks and spells.

Key Feature: Linked Target Empowerment:

  • This is where The Hand of Phrecia truly shines. It offers a two-part effect that significantly enhances the impact of your non-curse auras (auras that don’t inflict negative effects) while you have a linked target:
    • Increased Aura Effect: Boosts the effect of your non-curse auras by (20-40%). This translates to a direct increase in the buff or benefit provided by the aura, such as more damage, attack speed, or defensive bonuses.
    • Permanent Aura Link: Ensures that linked targets are always considered within range of your non-curse auras. This eliminates the need to constantly position yourself or your allies near the aura’s radius to receive its effects.

Restricted Aura Application:

  • It’s important to note that The Hand of Phrecia limits the effect of your non-curse auras to you and your linked targets. This means they won’t affect nearby party members or other allies.


  • Playstyle: This unique item rewards a playstyle focused on maintaining a linked target. This could involve using skills that create allies you can link to, such as Summon Flame Golem or Summon Phantasm.
  • Aura Choice: The effectiveness of The Hand of Phrecia hinges on using non-curse auras that significantly benefit your build and your linked target.
  • Positioning: While linked targets are permanently affected by your auras, strategic positioning can still be important to maximize the impact on encounters.

Possible Uses:

  • Aurabot builds that focus on buffing themselves and a single powerful ally (such as a Spectre or Summoned Golem)
  • Support characters who want to ensure their auras consistently affect a specific target (like a party member playing a critical strike build that benefits from an Accuracy aura).
  • Solo play with builds that utilize minion allies or other targetable mechanics.


The Hand of Phrecia is a valuable tool for characters who build around empowering themselves and a linked target through the use of non-curse auras. The increased aura effect and permanent application to linked targets make it a strong contender for specific build strategies. However, the limitations on aura application and the requirement to maintain a linked target need to be factored into your build planning.
