Craft of Exile: All You Need To Know

Updated: Dec 28, 2022

Are you struggling to get the right item for your build? Well, imagine if you could save money and get the freedom to create your own items? To the joy of Path of Exile fans, all this has become way easier thanks to the emergence of the Craft of Exile.

If you are a fan of the game, you probably already know the main ways to get the ideal item for your build: buying the item from another player or developing the item yourself through the amazing craft of exile poe.

The first way does not bring many benefits to players, because some items cost too much. Furthermore, there is a serious risk that you will take a long time to find the item you need so badly to complete your build. Therefore, the Craft of Exile was considered the salvation for many players.

At this point you are probably asking yourself "how does the craft work anyway?" or "how do I use it?". These questions are perfectly normal and we will answer them all and more.

What is Craft of Exile?

Well, first of all it is important to know that the Craft of Exile is a website that was created to help players. In fact, it is not just a site, but a tool that has become invaluable not only for experienced players, but especially for those who have just entered this adventure.

Through this site, players have more autonomy to develop their creation items in a practical and fast way. So, in short, we can call the site the Craft of Exile site, because the players will be the real artisans this time.

And of course, we can't forget the best part: you don't need to do any kind of installation or download to use the craft. Just log on to the site and you're done.

What are the tools of Craft of Exile?

Craft of Exile

The Craft of Exile has five tools for you to use while creating your item. They are:






This is the current list of tools, but it is good to stay tuned, as the site always adds new features regularly. So, always check the page to stay up to date and be sure to stay tuned to our website as well, as we will keep you up to date on this.

At this point it is important that you know only the purpose of the first four tools, because they will be used a lot.


The calculator is the main tool you will use, because it is through the calculator that gamers can calculate the estimated chances of achieving success with the combination of mods they have chosen.

Furthermore, through the calculator you can also get an idea of the average amount of money you will spend during the process of creating the items.

In this tool, you can also choose the method of crafting that you will use. They are: fossils, essence, orb of chaos, exalted orb, orb of alchemy, orb of alteration, orb of increase, orb of transmutation, royal orb, exalted crusader orb, exalted hunter orb, exalted redeemer orb, exalted warlord orb, orb of nullification, and finally, the metacraft.

However, it is important to remember that virtually all of the fossil mods have been removed from Fossil 3.10 and redirected to other influenced bases. The only mods you will find are the faceted fossils.

In the simulator, players will be able to simulate the creation of an item to analyze all the results, including the statistical distribution of the mods.

This tool is extremely important. Through it, players have access to samples of the most likely results, so they get a kind of "guide" to modify the items and get good results.


In short, in the emulator you basically "play" crafting. And of course, you will be able to base your creations on the results that the simulator has given you. Besides, you will have total autonomy to craft the way you want.


In affinities, you will have access to the results of the builds from the best 15,000 players in the softcore league.

In this tool, you will have a kind of guide to make the best possible builds, since you can analyze the results of other players to make your own creations.

Types of mod

The items in Path of Exile (rare, unique and magic items) can get two types of mods throughout the game: implicit mods and explicit mods. These mods are the magical properties that will be left on your items.

Implicit mods cannot be exchanged for other mods, nor can they be removed, because they are tied directly to the basic item. The only mod that allows swapping is the orb vaal, but it would be very risky, as it would probably destroy your item. Well, in short, you are basically stuck with the implicit mod.

And don't forget: item crafting cannot be done without a basic item (e.g. Vaal Regalia or Jagged Foil).

Regarding the explicit mods, it is important to pay twice as much attention to them, because they are what will determine whether an item is worth using or not. They are divided into prefixes and suffixes, and their quantity has a direct relationship to the basic item. On most rare items, for example, the mod types are divided equally into three prefixes and three suffixes.

The prefix and suffix columns range from 1 to 3. This quantity is directly related to the type of selection the player has chosen. For example: if the player obtains a magic item, there will be only 1 column. However, if he obtains a rare item, there will be a maximum of 3 columns.


The items will receive the influence of three characters from the old Path of Exile expansions. Check them out: The Elder: an evil being who has invaded the Atlas of worlds. In fact, he is simply the greatest villain of the War for the atlas expansion.

The Shaper: the shaper is considered one the most challenging enemies for Path of Exile players. He’s the creator of the Atlas.

The Conquerors: The Conquerors are four bosses that appear in the Conquerors of Atlas expansion. They are also known as Elderslayers.

The influence of these characters will allow the creation of special mods and everything will be indicated by means of a visual effect. It can be classified into 6 types:







The number of influences your item can have is very relative. There are cases where an item can have two influences, however, there are other cases where it will have none.

Generally speaking, an item usually has one influence, but you can access two through an awakening orb. In this case, you would have a great advantage, as you would have access to the mods of both influences.


If you have come this far, I hope you have looked at the advantages of Poe Craft of Exile very carefully. By the way, if you haven't tried this site yet, you are already wasting your time!

Let's review together some of the advantages that you will acquire with this site:

· More autonomy: you will have total freedom to craft the way you want.

· Economy: you can create your own items instead of buying them.

· Security for creation: you can have access to the possible results of your creations.

Well, no more suffering with failed builds and stop spending money on items that you could have created (and even sold) yourself. Through the Craft of Exile, you will have a strong foundation to face the challenging journey of Path of Exile to the end.
