Top 10 Path of Exile Leveling Uniques

Top 10 Path of Exile Leveling Uniques

Find out what are the best and most useful leveling items in Path of Exile

Top 10 Path of Exile Leveling Uniques

Today we would like to give you some leveling tips and present the most useful leveling unique items. There are plenty of uniques that you can use during leveling, that's why we have decided to select the Top 10 Leveling Uniques in Path of Exile. Some of those items listed can be bought right after you start, and you will be able to get to the mapping phase with them still equipped. 

We have also decided to skip the weapon slot. It is pretty much the only slot that requires you to upgrade it periodically or you might be missing on some of the required DPS. This is the very reason we would rather give you tips on how and when to change your weapons.

Top 10 Path of Exile Leveling uniques

Keep in mind that items on our list are not sorted from worst to best or the other way around except for Tabula Rasa and Perandus signet which is in our opinion the best leveling combination, which is suitable for any build and any character class.


Odealo is a secure gamer-driven marketplace for PoE Currency.

Tabula Rasa Tabula Rasa is the most popular (and most likely the best) Path of Exile leveling unique. It is extremely expensive during the first days of new Leagues. Tabula Rasa found during first 24hours of a newly started League is worth around the same as 15 Exalted Orbs of Standard Mode (permanent League). It works best with either of the following rings (Perandus Signet and Praxis) or even two of them. Mana cost of spells and abilities 6-linked on early levels is very high (Each support gem have mana multipliers on them, affecting the supported gem mana cost).  It has no level requirements
Perandus Signet Perandus Signet - is just another excellent leveling item. It's rather expensive early on. However, it's worth every Chaos Orb it costs. Not only helps you with mana management while using fully linked Tabula Rasa but will also increase experience gain, making the entire process much faster. You can get it as early as level 1
Praxis Praxis - a cheaper version of the Perandus Signet. You won't be able to use it right away, but it should come in handy right when you actually can 6-link your spells in Tabula Rasa (there are not that many available support gems at starting levels). It provides better mana regeneration bonuses and is much cheaper, however, you might be missing the % increased experience gain
Goldrim Goldrim - this is the best leveling unique helmet. It's also one of the best elemental resistance helmets overall. It makes it completely viable until late game. We have confirmed players using it till levels 80+, and we advise you not to enforce upgrades to this slot until you want to swap to your final gear and build
Seven-League Step Boots Seven-League Step - amazing leveling boots. This piece, however, is suggested to players with a higher budget. Not only these boots are rather expensive, but their lack of defensive stats will force you to make up for it with investments in other gear slots. 
Wanderlust Wanderlust boots are a more budget-friendly option. They provide very decent 20% movement speed bonus, as well as extra Mana Regeneration (once again, if using Tabula Rasa it's a perfect combination) 
Meginord's Girdle Meginord's Girdle - this is a fantastic belt for both melee and ranged physical fighters. Grants amazing physical damage bonus, as well as Increased maximum life attribute, which scales well - all the way to the end-game. This is a very cheap unique item, and there are a lot of physical damage budget builds that suggest using it even after level 70
Atziri's Foible Atziri's Foible (All classes) - pretty much the best leveling amulet in Path of Exile. Grants amazing mana and mana regeneration bonuses, while also lowering attribute requirements to items and gems
Karui Ward Karui Ward (projectile/bow builds) - another great option for rangers and projectile-based spellcasters. Will provide moderately good damage boost, as well as a very important leveling stat which is the Increased Movement Speed bonus
Sidhebreath Sidhebreath (summoners/casters) - the third amulet on the list is made for summoner characters. It is rather common that spellcasters use summon spells while leveling(acting as tanks/meatshields), that's why an amulet with increased regeneration rate and various minion-related affixes is always a good option

General tips on how to upgrade your weapon

After starting a new character you should grab a starting weapon for your specific character class and build. All the following item upgrades should be easily affordable with just the self-found leveling PoE currency. Our recommendations are:

  1. Spell damage/Caster class - Lifesprig. We have confirmed people leveling up to levels 50+ with Lifesprig. It's a very decent wand, and as long as you can afford to get good linked items in other slots, you should be able to level up with this till at least level 40. After level 30 you can freely look for higher spell damage wands up to your personal preference. You can also upgrade the wand to one of the following commonly used wands: Reverbation Rod (level 24), Tulborn (Cold spells - level 24) or Amplification Rod at level 36. Keep in mind you can dual-wield wands to get additional stats.
  2. Ranged/Bow user- Silverbranch being your starting bow. Later on, you can upgrade it at levels 9/32/44 to Stormcloud / Death's Harp / Death's Opus or other high physical damage uniques/rares
  3. Melee physical class - Redbeak or Last Resort(for claw users) as your starting weapon. Usually, it is the best solution to upgrade the weapon to the highest Physical DPS weapon you find during leveling, with optionally grabbing a good piece on poe.trade(according to the guidelines provided) every 10~ levels
  4. Summoner - same as Spell damage/Caster class. Your minions won't deal enough damage, so you have to stick with spellcasting anyway, until like level 40+.

You should always look for weapon upgrades as soon as you are feeling you aren't handling the current level of enemies (or simply the leveling is taking too long). Here are general tips on how to set the filters for each build type:

  1. Spell damage/Caster class - you should be able to easily get to level 50+ with just the wands listed above. If you can't do that, it's not the wand that is failing here. Check your gem levels, links and passive points - you should find the cause there. After level 40-45 you can start looking for high spell damage rare wands. Wands with at least +60 increased spell damage and some other beneficial stats should be relatively cheap even on newly formed Leagues
  2. Physical Weapons (both 1H/2H and Bows) - this is rather easy to upgrade. You go to poe.trade, select the weapon you want to buy (1H or 2H, Bow, etc.), enter your current level as the maximum level requirement in search filters, set max. price to 1 Alchemy Orb/1 Chaos Orb (or whatever else you can afford at the current level) and click the "Search!" button. After getting the results, you should click on the first item's pDPS stats to sort all the results by the highest physical damage item available to you and just buy it. 

This method will easily get you to level 70s when you start about to get the required items for your build. 


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