Find out what are the best and the most expensive Path of Exile Items. We made two lists for Rares and Uniques

Last update: November 20, 2019 - Patch 3.8

We would like to give you two lists of the best and the most expensive items in the Path of Exile. We have decided to make separate lists for bothunique and Mirror-level Rare Items. Even though both of them consist of very good and expensiveitems, the two item types have entirely different uses and characteristics. You should note that Unique Items are far from the best Crafted Rares, and only Legacy double-corrupted Unique Items can get anywhere close to the level of several thousand Exalted Orbs - which often is an estimated price for items offered via Mirror services.

1. The Best Path of ExileUnique Items

What makes Unique Items so special is usually carrying affixes and special effects that are exclusive only to them, and unavailable anywhere else. Unique Items openup completely newgameplay mechanics and allow certain alternative characterbuilds to be made based on them. This does not necessarily make those items so expensive;how hard it is to obtain them determines their price. Unique Items have a predefined set of attributes on them, and since most of them are global drops, even the best Uniques won't cost a fortune. Obviously, items with perfect rolls can cost several times more than the same base with rolls on the lower end, but still what makes some Unique Items extremely expensive is primarily the difficulty of obtaining them. There are several types of Unique Items which can be found in Path of Exile:

  1. Regular Unique Items -which can drop from any source, as long as you are in a high-level zone. Most expensive Items in this group will cost between one or two Exalted Orbs, for example for decently rolled Shavronne's Wrappings or Hyrri's Ire;
  2. Unique Items with drop restrictions - a group that includes League-restricted Items, Fated Items, Boss-specific drops, specific Divination Card rewards. A number of Items that can't be found on regular Maps are heavily demanded by high-level players. In this group, among others, you can include drops from Bosses like Uber Atziri, Shaper, Elder/Uber Elder, Aul, Cortex, Breachlords. The most expensive Items that can be found in the Path of Exile but will require you to farm a very specific content are Farrul's Fur and Headhunter. Below you can find some basic info on how to get those;
  3. Legacy Unique Items - Legacy variants of currently obtainable Uniques, which have different stats (or their values). These Items no longer drop in the game, nor can they be obtained in any way. It was briefly possible during the Legacy League from Ancient Reliquaries. Obviously, Items with higher base stats are the ones that will be significantly more expensive. A few Legacy Unique Items can reach the price of several hundred Exalted Orbs, with solid double Corruptions getting close the price of original copies of Mirror-service Rares.

Odealo is a secure tradingplatform for MMO gamers. It is a gamer-drivenmarketplace for PoECurrency, Orbs, and Unique items.

Legacy Kaom's Heart grants the highest possible Life bonusin the game. It will provide at least 2000 additional Maximum Life in any average Life-oriented build. This number can reach nearly3000 extraMaximum Life with certain builds and therefore is indisputably the best for the job. The legacy variant of Kaom's Heart costs around 1000 Exalted Orbs which is one of the highest prices for any unique item in Path of Exile - we rather not estimate the price for a double corrupted one with increased Maximum Resistances and/or Increased Damage bonus.
Legacy items are costly because they no longer drop in-game. Only their new (in this case inferior, but still powerful) version is available. There is currently only onewayto get Legacy items - by trading with other players. For a brief moment, it was also possible by using Ancient Reliquary Keys in the Map Device. You would be teleported to a zone with Ancient Reliquary which had a chance to drop Legacy Items - though a single Keycost several Exalted Orbs.

Legacy Shavronne's Wrappingsbefore Fall of Oriath and patch 3.0 it was one of the most in-demand end-game items in the Path of Exile. It was a game-changing item that allowed a completely new typeof builds possible. Shavronne's Wrappings introduced the Low-Life/Energy Shield builds which are still very popular. It allowed players to use additional Auras by reserving Life since Chaos Damage couldn't bypass Energy Shield. For a very long time, Energy Shield builds with Shavronne's Wrappings ruled the Ladderboards. The initial version of Shavronne's Wrappings had an amazing 200-250% Increased Energy Shield, which was eventually reduced to 140-200% in patch 3.0, and then again to the current 100-150%. These changes made the legacy version of the item extremely valuable, and its' price starts at around 200 Exalted Orbs. Double-corrupted pieces can go up to around 2,000 - 3,000 Exalted Orbs.

Headhunter- it's the most expensive non-Legacy Unique Item in Path of Exile (putting Corrupted and perfectly rolled items aside). It carries the best single-affix buff in the entire game, allowing players to gain Mods of slain monsters mods for 20 seconds. By increasing Skill Effect duration, your character can carry massive amounts of extra Bonuses, tremendously increasing your power and speed. Headhunter prices start ataround 60 Exalted Orbs depending on how early in the League it's offered for sale. Headhunter was a Nemesis League exclusive item, but there are still several available ways to obtain it:

  1. Divination Cards;
  2. Beastcrafting;
  3. Shaperstronghold Bosses;
  4. Cameria's Chest while in Transportation hideout;
  5. Level 2 and 3 Altar of Sacrifice in Temple of Atzoatl;
  6. Using Ancient Orbs on Belts while in Zana's Nemesis Mod Map;
  7. Time-Lost Incubators;
  8. A Hidden Heirlooms in Delve;
  9. Cadiro Perandus may occasionally offer Headhunter for approximately 20,000 Perandus coins;
  10. "Drop Unique Item" Bargain option in Betrayal encounter;
  11. Legion Chests/Monsters;
  12. Rare monster possessed by Tormented Graverobber.

Eyes of the Greatwolf Talisman- talismans were introduced into the Path of Exile with the Talisman League. Talismans areUnique Corrupted Amulet-slot items that carried a completely new set of attributes. Eyes of the Greatwolf Talisman had two random implicit modifiers, which values were doubled. Depending on your luck this item's price ranges from 10 to several hundred Exalted Orbs. With several extremely powerful modifiers that include:

  1. (12-16)% increased Attributes
  2. (15-25)% increased Global Defences
  3. (25-35)% increased Damage
  4. +(24-36)% to Global Critical Strike Multiplier
  5. (6-10)% increased Quantity of Items found
  6. (6-10)% increased Attack and Cast Speed

Talismans are no longer regular drops in Path of Exile, but they can be still obtained by trading with other players or exchanging Divination Cards.

Legacy Atziri's Acuity- theseare the most expensive Unique Gloves in PoE. It could only be dropped by Atziri, Queen of the Vaal in the Alluring Abyss (the level 80 area) - sometimes referred to as the Uber Atziri. This is the Best in Slot (BiS) item for a lot of Assassin and Crit builds, however, the Legacy variant is not longer in Atziri's Loot-table. The current version provides Vaal Pact Passive instead, which is nowhere close to how powerful they are in the previous version pre Patch 3.1. Legacy Atziri's Acuity price currently starts at around 130 Exalted Orbs.
Farrul's Fur- the second most expensive non-Legacy Item on the list. It's one of the best Armour for a lot of different builds. The high demand and its heavy drop restrictions set Farrul's Fur price at a minimum of 25 Exalted Orbs. Farrul's Fur can be looted fromFarrul, First of the Plains in Farrul's Den. Opening the Portals to it is only available via Beastcrafting, so you have to be prepared to grind very Rare Bests in Einhar Missions. It can be also obtained in the same ways listed under the Headhunter Belt.
Watcher's Eye- this Unique Jewel drops only from Elder (with two Random Aura Modifiers) and Uber Elder (three Aura Modifiers). Those bonuses are completely random, but if you manage to get three useful bonuses, your Watcher's Eye can cost hundreds of Exalted Orbs. The most popular Auras here will be Hatred, Price, Precision, Malevolence, Discipline, and surely a bunch of others.
Starforge- extremely powerful Two-Handed weapon that can only drop from the Shaper - the final boss of the Atlas of Worlds expansion. It provides amazing damage, great Life bonus, and unique modifiers to Physical Damage, that allows it to Shock enemies with Physical Hits. Because of its' rarity and amazing raw DPS (this Sword can reach over 720 raw physical DPS), the price for this sword can reach nearly 30 Exalted Orbs for a great rolled ones
Atziri's Disfavour- is one of the most popular Two-Handed Axes in PoE. It has very high damage (up to around 612 physical DPS) as well as adds two levels to socketed Support Gems, granting extremely high DPS bonuses. It can only drop from Atziri in the Alluring Abyss or gained when exchanging certain Divination cards like The Devastator, The Last One Standing, or The Void. Its price can reach around 25 Exalted Orbs for a nearly perfect one. However, because of the addition of Elder Items, Rare Axes can inherit extra Fortify Support Gem on them, which makes them the BiS for 2H Melee builds. This caused the price of Atziri's Disfavor to go significantly

2. Most expensive Rare Items in Path of Exile

Top tier rare items are much more expensive than the best Uniques. The main reason for that is because rares can be mirrored by the owner, and copies can be sold with a great profit. End-game Rares have to be crafted which is an extremely long and expensive process(and highly dependant on luck). Crafting the items listed below cost an equivalent of hundreds or thousands of Exalted Orbs. Not to mention tens of thousands of other low-tier Orbs like Alts/Scours/Regals/etc. consumed in the process.Exalted Orbs and Eternal Orbs (though the latter are less common in crafting nowadays)spent are a long-term investment. The very top items created this way are worth thousands of Exalted Orbs, and selling Mirrored copies can generate 1-200 Exalted Orbs profit for each copy sold.

We have decided to include the price for a mirrored copy on our list, as well as the price for the original, which is usually estimated based on the fee and number of copies sold (assuming the data is any close to the truth).

Dragon Rend is the single-best and the most expensive One-Handed Weapon in Path of Exile. It is a Synethsised Siege Axe which has over 850 raw Physical DPS. This number would be amazing even on a Two-Handed Weapon... You should get the point now. This is also currently the item with the highest fixed Fee for a Mirrored Copy - at a 250 Exalted Orbs per copy. This hasn't been disclosed how many copies were created, but it could be between 30 and 100 copies. Assuming it made over 10k Exalted Orbs in Fees for the owner already, we estimate the price for the original piece to be around 15,000Exalted Orbs (which is over 50 Mirrors of Kalandra!)

The Best and The Most Expensive Path of Exile Items (16)

Havoc Rend is themost expensive Two-Handed Weapons in the Path of Exile. At the same time, it is the best Two-Handed Axe with one of the highest base DPSs.It is a Synethsised Vaal Axe which has over 1000 base Physical DPS. It was also the first Weapon in Path of Exile to reach that number. This is also currently the item with the highest fixed Fee for a Mirrored Copy - at a 90 Exalted Orbs per copy. Supposedly nearly 30 copies were made of it, and we expect the original piece to be valued somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 Exalted Orbs.

The Best and The Most Expensive Path of Exile Items (17)

This is the single-best Physical Spell Caster Sceptre. If you are playing with Holy Flame Totem, Blade Vortex, Divine Ire, Bladefall, Ethereal Knives, Purifying Flame, Shockwave Totem, Seismic Trap, Storm Burst, or Unearth - there is no better weapon for them in PoE. At the same time, it is one of the most often duplicated Item in Path of Exile, with over 50 copies made. This item can be bought for a Mirror and a 100 Exalted Orbs fee. This causes us to believe, the original would be worth somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 Exalted Orbs.

Corruption Bite is the #1 Spell Caster's Wand in Path of Exile. Just like Entropy Grinder, it has a fixed fee of 100 Exalted Orbs and its owner sold over 50 copies. This puts the original value at around 5-10k Exalts, but with the upcoming Lightning-based Spell Caster Ascendancy Class in Path of Exile 2, who knows how will it affect the price on this beauty. This Wand utilizes just one Elemental Damage type, making it a very convenient weapon for a lot of builds, making it the best for this slot, though for some builds that utilize solely different Elements, you should be able to find a better alternative.

Supposedly the #1 Physical DPS Bow in Path of Exile. It fights for the spot with weapons like Tempest Thunder and Blood Wing, for the majority of builds we have tested, it offers up to a couple of percent damage increase. Gloom Arch is offered at 120 Exalted Orbs fee, and with the standard popularity of such Bows, we expect that the owner made over 100 Copies of it. We expect the original piece's value to be at around 5,000 - 15,000 Exalted Orbs. It's hard to calculate, as the high competition for the #1 Spot in the Bow Division certainly would affect the price on this item.

Havoc Suit is the single best Elder Armour for Physical/Attack Builds. Because of high Armour and insane Life bonuses, you would expect this to be the perfect fit for any Melee build, but with its insane DPS bonuses, you will surely see a lot of high-level Rangers also using it. The fee for this item is set at 70 Exalted Orbs, and with approximately 20 copies created, you would expect the original to be valued at over 2,000 Exalted Orbs.

Sol Locket is the most expensive Physical DPS Amulet for Melee and Ranged Classes. It simply offers absurd Damage Bonuses. Not to mention Tier 1 Life, Accuracy Rating, and Flat Mana Cost Reduction of Skills. The Mirror fee for Sol Locket is currently set to 100 Exalted Orbs, and even though it's very high for an Amulet, and it's limited only to Crit/Physical Attack builds, nearly 20 copies were made already. We expect the original to be worth between 3,000 and 5,000 Exalted Orbs.

Victory Impaler is the best Physical DPS Quiver in the Path of Exile. At the same time, it's going to be the most expensive one. It will truly shine in Damage Conversion builds like Tornado Shot/Barrage, making it the BiS piece of equipment. This Quiver is offered at 90 Exalted Orbs fee for a Mirrored copy, but it's unknown how many copies were made. We would expect it to be somewhere between 10 to 30 copies, with approximately 1,500 - 2,000 Exalted Orbs for the original piece (there are some powerful competitors for the #1 Quiver).

According to our research, the original Wrath Grip is currently the most expensive Ring in Path of Exile. It's insane for Physical Attack DPS builds, and grants just terrific bonuses to your damage. You also get some extra Resistances and a very high Life bonus. This Ring has a fixed fee of 100 Exalted Orbs, yet its owner managed to sell nearly 30 copies, making it surely the most expensive Ring in the game. We expect the original to be valued at around 3,000 to 5,000 Exalted Orbs.

Honorable Mentions

Below you will find Iconic and Legendary Items that were once the most expensive Items in the game. They are inferior to the items listed above for obvious reasons, but since they were at the top for so long, we have decided to keep them here, in what you could call a "Hall of Fame" of the Best Crafted Weapons in Path of Exile.

The Items listed belowwere Crafted long before Synthesised, Elder, and Shaper items were introduced, and long before Delve Crafting and Increasing Quality above 20% was possible. They are currently outdated, and they are no longer offered via Mirror Services, but you can still expect them to cost around 75-150 Exalted Orbs for a Mirrored copy

Loath Bane Ambusher was considered the #1 Physical Dagger in the Path of Exile for quite a while. It is an iconic and legendary item, being one of the first top-tier daggers to be crafted, and possibly earning thousands of Exalted Orbs for his original owner. It became extremely popular during the reign of Spectral Throw/Low Life builds.

Price for a mirrored copy: 130 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est.1000-1500 Exalted Orbs - when the dagger changed owners, it was hinted that it was way over one full inventory of Exalted Orbs, with eventually several Mirrors of Kalandra involved in the trade.

Victory Slicer Ambusher is a slightly better Phys. Dagger, however, it's unknown who owns the original piece, and if it even exists. Because only several mirrored copies have been seen around, the blade is impossible to get.

Brood Twinewas the #1 Physical DPS Bow in the entire game. Because of high demand, and its' incredible DPS and critical strike bonuses the price for mirrored copies was around 340-360 Exalted Orbs down to the current 140 Exalted Orbs.While no buyout price was set on the original piece, judging by the number of people interested in this bow, it could have been over 10,000 Exalted Orbs back in the days. Currently, it's still in the Top 10 Bows in PoE, but that's not good enough for people to spend over a Mirror on it
Plague Scratch was the number #1 Spell Casters Dagger in the Path of Exile. It was offered for an astronomical price of 10,000 Exalted Orbs for the original item, while mirrored copies were sold for 360-380 Exalted Orbs. Currently, you can get one for about 80 Exalted Orbs

Buying PoE Currency with real money is a hassle-free way to get all the items you need for your character.

Keep in mind, while most of the prices for Mirrored copies are publicly available, and a lot of those items are offered on, the pricesfor the original copies are rough estimates. The majority of the listed items are not for sale, and never will be, since they create Path of Exile's history and a ton of profit for their owners.

We are looking forward to your suggestions regarding our listeditems. If you believe we have missed something important, or if you think some of those are not fit for this collation, please let us know in the comments below.
