There are many different Vendor Recipes in Path of Exile, many of which allow you to get Currency, Gems, Unique items, Flasks and much more. To do this, you need to exchange a special set of things by selling them to the vendor. You will immediately see what you get in return, without the risk of losing your belongings. In this guide, we have collected the most popular and most useful recipes that will not only allow you to understand exactly how it works but also benefit from it.
Recipes for Currency exchange
These recipes will allow you to exchange various things that can fall to you even at the very beginning of the game. One clarification – you should exchange 6 linked items for Divine Orb only if the cost of this item is the same as the cost of Divine Orb and you do not want to sell it to other players. This refers to corrupted items with bad rolls or low-level uniques.
|Orb of Augmentation||Any item with six affixes|
|Chromatic Orb||Any item with linked red, green, and blue sockets|
|Jeweller’s Orb||Any item with 6 sockets|
|Vaal Orb||Any Sacrifice vaal fragment + any 7x vaal skill gems|
|Divine Orb||Any 6 linked item|
Recipes for Quality Currency
You can get the desired item in two ways – by selling a single normal item of that category with 20% quality OR several items of that category with a total of at least 40% quality. This makes it very easy to get Gemcutter’s Prism, as players often encounter Superior gems. And yes, Cartographer’s Chisel can be obtained by using another recipe – by exchanging any Map + Stone Hammer / Rock Breaker / Gavel with 20% quality.
|Gemcutter’s Prism||Skill Gem|
Currency sold by Vendors
Although these are not Vendor Recipes, this table will help you figure out which Currency items you can buy from them. Again, this will only be useful in SSF leagues, where there is no opportunity to exchange with other players because in regular leagues it is much more profitable to buy or exchange the desired type of Currency.

Full sets recipes
One of the most useful and most used recipes is getting a Chaos Orb for selling a full set of rare items. So what is a full set? These are Helmet, Body Armor, Gloves, Boots, Belt, Amulet, two Rings and one of the following: Two-Handed Weapon OR One-Handed Weapon and Shield OR two One-Handed Weapons OR two Shields.
|Result||Requirements and Item Levels|
|Orb of Chance||Full Rare Set with ilvl 1-59|
|Orb of Chance x 2||All unidentified OR all 20% quality items with ilvl 1-59|
|Orb of Chance x 3||All unidentified AND all 20% quality items with ilvl 1-59|
|Chaos Orb||Full Rare Set with ilvl 60-74|
|Chaos Orb x 2||All unidentified OR all 20% quality items with ilvl 60-74|
|Chaos Orb x 3||All unidentified AND all 20% quality items with ilvl 60-74|
|Regal Orb||Full Rare Set with ilvl 75+|

|Exalted Shard x 2||Identified, full set of the same influenced items|
|Exalted Shard x 4||Unidentified, full set of the same influenced items|
Influenced items are special types of base items with exclusive modifiers. These include items that drop from monsters and bosses on maps in the Atlas, they are easily identified by their graphical effects and icon on the sides of the name plate. These include items that drop from the Conquerors of the Atlas (Crusader, Hunter, Redeemer and Warlord), Shaper and Elder.
Skill gems recipes
The recipe for a 20% quality skill gem saves a large amount of Gemcutter’s Prism. However, do not forget to simultaneously pump one or two gems with your main skill on the swap in order to be able to drop its level to the first, replacing it with another, without losing damage. Also, if you accidentally levelled up a gem that you need the required level, it is possible to reduce its level using the following recipes.
|20% quality skill gem (level 1)||Any level 20 skill gem + Gemcutter’s Prism|
|decrease level of skill gem by 1||Skill gem + Orb of Scouring|
|decrease level of skill gem to 1||Skill gem + Orb of Regret|
Recipes for Atlas
These recipes will help you advance through the Atlas faster and easier, especially if you are stuck on one dash and you do not get maps with a tier higher.
|Higher tier map within the same Atlas region||Same type maps x 3 (e.g. Beach Map)|
|Prime Sextant||Simple Sextant x 3|
|Awakened Sextant||Prime Sextant x 3|
We hope that these recipes will be useful to you, especially if you play in the SSF league or want to maximize your profit from clearing maps.
