Path of Exile Shop: A Beginner’s Guide

Path of Exile is an ARPG hack-and-slash game that has dominated the genre for years. We may be able to play the Path of Exile 2 first beta in 2022. It’s crucial to note that anything you buy in the Shop today will also be available in PoE 2.

Path of Exile is advertised as a free-to-play game, although it’s more accurate to call it a free-to-try game (and it is worth a try). Of course, given the game is free, you can play it in its entirety as a F2P player, but you will be severely limited in terms of gameplay comfort.

You will have a limited stockpile, therefore you will need to spend money in the shop to considerably improve it. Fortunately, the cost of improving your stash is reasonable, and there are frequently weekend deals for these upgrades.

The basic stash tab is used to keep stuff such as weapons and armor. It is vital to take the unique stash tabs like Currency, Divination Cards, Map, etc.

Stash Upgrade and Trading System

First, I recommend keeping a tab for each type of equipment for the sake of convenience. I prefer the premium stash tabs since we can customize them to make our stash review more pleasant. When creating your account, you get 3 non-premium stash tabs. You can upgrade them to premium with the Shop.

If you wish to trade in-game (POE allows you to play with or without trading with other players through various game modes), you’ll need at least one premium stash tab. These are the only tabs that are available in public mode. This enables the content of this tab to be displayed in the trade section of the official site, as well as the ability to connect a currency price with the objects under this tab.

Is Buying Points Worth It?

  • There are various ways to purchase points, each with a wide range of prices. Let’s start with the most vital point: purchasing raw points for money is not advisable.
  • For example, the offer of $20 for 200 points. Taking the supporter pack is significantly more beneficial because you get cosmetics for your characters in addition to the points. Each pack’s content is detailed and is always accompanied by a demo clip.

The only pack I recommend avoiding is the First Blood Pack; it is not profitable in any way. Additionally, the first level of league supporter packs is rarely profitable so they are very often ignored. Finally, I encourage that you look at the store’s deals every day (this changes daily), except on weekends with special promotions.

The image above is an example of an unprofitable pack.
