As you most likely already know, there is no direct way to transfer or trade PoE Currency between different game modes and Leagues. This includes both Softcore to Hardcore trading, as well as Standard to Leagues/Temporary Leagues currency transfers. However, it is still possible with the use of marketplaces like Odealo. Moreover, there is no real-money-trading (PoE RMT) involved. You sell your orbs in one mode, and buy them on another, with no additional payments. If done right, you can get your Orbs on the new League in no time.
Currently available game modes in Path of Exile
Fresh Start - not that bad after all?
So you have decided to start over once again and face all the new League Challenges? Your stashed Orbs and Gear doesn't exactly have to get dusty. There are thousands of active players on each of the game modes in Path of Exile, making the Trading aspect of the game rather well-developed. This allows players to easily find buyers and sellers for items and orbs anywhere they are planning to move on to (or go back to).
You have to remember, if you plan to sell your goods on Standard mode, and move on to a new freshly launched League, the value of your Orbs will go down drastically. The Exalted Orb to Chaos Orb exchange rate on Standard and Harbinger League (both Softcore) was around 1:1 for the first couple of days. It's the same the other way around, if you have played the New League for a couple of days and have gotten your hands on a couple of mid to high tier orbs, those can make you very rich if you plan to go back to your old character or Standard Mode.
Cross-mode and cross-league Trading
In order to Securely Trade your PoE Currency between game modes, you will have to follow the steps below. As stated before, unless you want it to be, there is no real-money-trading involved. This, however, doesn't make it an officially supported trading method according to Path of Exile Terms of Service, and to Grinding Gear Games standpoint on this matter. This is why want you to know that the very same rules apply to Cross-mode/Cross-League Trading as to direct RMT. In order to make it safe and secure for everyone please read the following guidelines before getting down to the actual trading at Odealo:
Accepting trades like this is very risky. Even if that is really a gift from a friend to get you started
That's an example of a "good" PoE Currency Trade
We do not advise trading these types of items
This precaution measures help maintain the safety of both parties of each Path of Exile transaction. This does not only refer to RMT, and trading at Odealo but in general. After you have read and understood those guidelines, you can proceed to the Cross-mode and Cross-League trading guide.
Start by choosing your default server/mode for Path of Exile. It can be changed at any time
Post a new offer button
Transaction details window is easily accessible from within Your Odealo Account
Your available balance is visible on top of the screen, right in the middle of your User's Control Panel
Assuming you have already sold your Orbs, Items or other Goods, and you did receive the funds, you should now try to find an interesting offer on the Mode or League you are interested in. At Odealo you will find a wide variety of PoE orbs and Items for pretty much all Leagues and Modes. If for some reason you can't find an item you are interested in, try asking one of the Sellers that are offering the goods. There are certain rare or expensive items, that are hard to get and might not be publicly offered. Usually, they can be provided at request.
After you have found what you are looking for, feel free to accept the specific offer, and input your character name. You will be able to pay for it with your available Odealo balance, with no need to make any additional payments to Odealo or any of the Sellers.
Players with an available Credit balance can make purchases without any additional payments or fees
After your transaction has been created, contact the Seller about the delivery details and how he's expecting it to be done (however most Sellers will feel more than secure if both of you use the previously mentioned guidelines). After the exchange, remember to confirm delivery and leave feedback for the Seller. This helps to maintain a user-friendly atmosphere.
Delivery confirmation can be executed from the Transaction Details window. Remember to always leave feedback as well
Enjoy your new Currency and Items on the new League :)
