The Best and The Most Expensive Path of Exile Items

The Best and The Most Expensive Path of Exile Items

Find out what are the best and the most expensive Path of Exile items. We present two separate lists for rares and uniques

The Best and The Most Expensive Path of Exile Items

We would like to give you two lists of the best and the most expensive items in Path of Exile. We have decided to make separate lists for both unique and rare items. Even though both of them consist of very good and expensive items, the two item types have entirely different uses and characteristics. The list is updated to the newest 3.0 Patch and Fall of Oriath.

1. The Best Path of Exile unique items

What makes unique items so special is usually carrying affixes that are exclusive only to them, and unavailable anywhere else. Unique items offer unique gameplay mechanics and allow certain alternative characters builds to be used. This does not necessarily make those items so expensive, but also the item's rarity(market supply) and their highly demanded attributes are to be accounted for their price. In general, uniques are not the as expensive as the best-rolled rare items in Path of Exile. This, however, doesn't apply to the extremely hard to get Legacy versions of some of the items, and some perfectly rolled and "properly" corrupted items.

Odealo is a secure trading platform for MMO gamers. It is a gamer-driven marketplace for PoE Currency, Orbs, and Unique items.

Legacy Kaom's Heart

Legacy Kaom's Heart is the best single "defensive" item in the game. It will provide at least 2000 additional Maximum Life in any average Life-oriented build. This number can easily reach over 3000 increased Maximum Life with certain builds and therefore is indisputably the best for the job. The legacy variant of Kaom's Heart will cost around 500 Exalted Orbs which is one of the highest prices for any unique item in Path of Exile - we rather not estimate a price on corrupted Legacy Kaom's with +1 Increased maximum resistances :)
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 are only two ways to get a Legacy item at the moment:

  1. Trading with other players
  2. Find it in the Ancient Reliquary. An area that can be accessed by putting Ancient Reliquary Key in the Map device. Ancient Reliquary Key was the Legacy league's exclusive drop. Its' current price on Standard is around 2.5 Exalted Orb
Legacy Shavronne's Wrappings

Legacy Shavronne's Wrappings before Fall of Oriath and patch 3.0 it was one of the most in-demand end-game items in Path of Exile. It was a game-changing item that allowed a lot of completely new type of builds possible. They were mainly based on high Energy Pool and Low life, which was usually caused by using additional Auras linked with the Blood Magic Support Gem. For a very long time, Energy Shield builds with Shavronne's Wrappings ruled the Leaderboards. It caused Chaos damage to not bypass Energy Shield, exactly like the Chaos Inoculation however without reducing your Life to 1. 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%. This changes made the legacy version of the item extremely valuable, and its' price starts at around 200 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 slain monsters mods for 20 seconds. This power set its' starting price to around 70 Exalted Orbs. Headhunter was a Nemesis league exclusive item, but there are still several available ways to obtain it:

  1. Trading with other players
  2. Find it on maps with the Nemesis mod (through Zana's map device)
  3. Chancing a Leather belt on a Nemesis mod map
  4. Exchanging Divination Cards (The Doctor, The Fiend, Jack in the Box, Time-Lost Relic, The Valkyrie, The Wretched)
Eyes of the Greatwolf Talisman

Eyes of the Greatwolf Talisman - talismans were introduced into Path of Exile with the Talisman League. This was unique 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. (40-50)% increased Global Critical Strike Chance
  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:

  1. Trading with other players
  2. Exchanging Divination Cards (Jack in the Box, Mawr Blaidd, Time-Lost Relic)
Atziri's Acuity
Atziri's Acuity - these are the most expensive unique gloves in PoE. They can be only 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. It provides the extremely useful buff to Life and Mana Leech, which is applied instantly on Critical hits. On top of that, the gloves give a good bonus to the Crit. chance itself, as well as grant decent Life and Intelligence bonus. Atziri's Acuity price currently starts at around 40 Exalted Orbs.
Blightwell Talisman
Blightwell Talisman - is another example of an expensive Talisman-type item. It provides excellent defensive implicit modifier and unique energy shield buffs that benefit greatly some ES-based builds. Depending on the value of the global defense modifier, the price on this amulet ranges from 5-20 Exalted Orbs.

Skyforth is the most expensive unique pair of boots in Path of Exile. They provide the highest Power Charge generation rate, which makes them extremely useful for pretty much every Crit-based build. Their original price of 20 Exalted Orbs has gone down significantly since the 3.0 Expansion, mainly because of the implementation of the Pantheon. The Stun protection they provided can be currently replaced with the Brine King's Major god power, hence making the boots currently worth around 10 Exalted Orbs.

This boots can be "easily" obtained by casual players by chancing Sorcerer boots. It is one of the most cost-effective ways to use the Orb (except for spending them directly on gear upgrades). 

Other worth-mentioning valuable uniques
Kaom's Heart
Kaom's Heart - currently available version of the Kaom's Heart armour is pretty much the most popular unique at the moment. Because of the 3.0's changes to Energy Shield, most of the popular end-game builds are based on Life, with Kaom's Heart being a core item for the majority of them. Even with reducing the Life bonus by half, it remains the best single survivability boosting item in the game. It also provides a decent Fire damage bonus. This overall makes this armor piece worth around 5 Exalted Orbs (which is nearly four times more than before the Patch).
Natural Hierarchy
Natural Hierarchy Talisman - is a great talisman that boosts all available types of damage in PoE. It makes it extremely useful for several builds that utilize multiple damage types. The starting price for this Talisman is around 5 Exalted Orbs, up to nearly 20 for a good rolled ones.
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. Because of its' rarity and amazing raw damage (this Sword can reach over 720 raw physical DPS), the price for this sword starts at around 9 Exalted Orbs up to 40 for perfectly rolled ones.
Atziri's Disfavour
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's the best in slot item for a lot of Physical builds, including Ancestral Warchief, Cyclone and Earthquake builds, as well as the majority of 2Handed melee builds. It can be only dropped by Atziri in the Alluring Abyss or gained when exchanging certain Divination cards like The Devastator, The Last One Standing, The Void. Its current price starts at around 4 Exalted Orbs, and goes up to 40 Exalted Orbs for a 6Linked high rolled ones.

On Odealo dozens of sellers compete for your attention. Buying PoE Currency here guarantees the best prices, prompt delivery and the best quality of service.

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 and 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 of Exalted Orbs. Thousands of low-tier orbs, Exalted Orbs and Eternal Orbs 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 each.

We have decided to include the price for a mirrored copy on our list, as well as the price for the original, which is either estimated or provided by the original owner.

Loath Bane Ambusher

Loath Bane Ambusher is considered the #1 Physical Dagger in Path of Exile. 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: 190 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 1000-1500 Exalted Orbs - the dagger have recently changed owners, and while the final price was not disclosed to the public, 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 Twine
Brood Twice is 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 is around 340-360 Exalted Orbs. While no buyout price is set on the original piece, judging by the number of people interested in this bow, it could be over 10,000 Exalted Orbs.
Plague Scratch
Plague Scratch is the number 1 Spell Casters Dagger in Path of Exile. It is offered for an astronomical price of 10,000 Exalted Orbs for the original item, while mirrored copies are sold for 360-380 Exalted Orbs
Corpse Barb

Corpse Barb, on the other hand, is the best spell caster's wand in PoE. 

Price for a mirrored copy: 260-280 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 3000-4000 Exalted Orbs

Bramble Eye

Bramble Eye is supposing the best physical DPS ring in Path of Exile. It provides incredible DPS boost, carrying 6 Tier 1 affixes. 

Price for a mirrored copy: 265 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 3000-4000 Exalted Orbs

Gale Eye

Gale Eye is yet another example of an extremely valuable ring. It's the best in slot item for pretty much any Hybrid (Life/Energy Shield) build. 

Price for a mirrored copy: 235 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 1500-2500 Exalted Orbs

Vengeance Collar

Vengeance Collar is the most expensive physical DPS amulet in PoE.

Price for a mirrored copy: 325 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 3500-5000 Exalted Orbs

Pain Sunder

Pain Sunder is the highest DPS weapon in Path of Exile.

Price for a mirrored copy: 255 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 3000-4000 Exalted Orbs

Mind Fang
Mind Fang, while not carrying the highest "paper" DPS is possibly the most expensive two-handed weapon in Path of Exile. Its' original version could sell for around 8,000-10,000 Exalted Orbs with its mirrored copies offered at 350-360 Exalted Orbs.
Gale Bane

Gale Bane is one of the highest DPS 1hander in PoE, second only to Carrier Bane (found below). However, the additional Chaos resistance makes it into the most expensive sword in the game.

Price for a mirrored copy: 275 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 4000-4500 Exalted Orbs

Carrior Bite
Carrion Bite carries the top #1 spot regarding one-handed weapon raw DPS. This made the mirrored copy sell at around 240-250 Exalted Orbs, with an estimated price for the original at 3500-4000 Exalted Orbs.
Victory Hide

Victory Hide is the most expensive ES Body Armour in game. It gives the player nearly 1,000 Energy Shield and has nearly perfectly rolled Tier 1 elemental resistances. Even after the recent nerfs to Energy Shield it remains an item of great value.

Price for a mirrored copy: 275 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 2500-3000 Exalted Orbs

Foe Curtain Zodiac Leather

Foe Curtain might not be the most expensive item in the game. However, it is supposedly the only 6x Tier 1 affixes Body Armour in Path of Exile.

Price for a mirrored copy: 180-220 Exalted Orbs
Price for the original item: est. 800-1200 Exalted Orbs

Rune Spell
Rune Spell is the best spell caster's shield in Path of Exile. It carries 6 Tier 1 affixes, which sets its' mirrored copies price at 275 Exalted Orb and the original piece value of around 3000-4000 Exalted Orbs.
Cataclysm Hold
This is an amazing example of top tier DPS gloves. Cataclysm Hold's price is set at 245 Exalted Orbs, with an estimated price for the original pair at 1000-1500 Exalted Orbs.
Phoenix Slippers
Phoenix Slippers are one of the best boots. They are currently on Harbinger League, so it's hard to estimate their real value - the demand for temporary Leagues for such items is much lower than on the Standard mode. They are still expected to cost around 190-200 Exalted Orbs for a copy, and the original price at around 800-1200 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 prices for the original copies are rough estimates. Majority of the listed items are not for sale, and never will be, since they create Path of Exile's history.
