PoE Magic Find Guides: Maximizing Potential PoE Currency and Loot
Magic find in Path of Exile has been a topic of much debate among players. Does quantity on your gear matter? Do stricter loot filters yield better results? In this guide, we dive into the science of magic find, based on a series of experiments, with the aim of maximizing potential poe currency and loot.
↖ Character & Build

- Maps: Ran Crimson Temple maps with minimum 75% quantity.
- Scarabs: Used Gilded Divination, Ambush, Harbinger, and Cartography.
- Atlas Modifiers: Enraged strong box, two extra strong boxes, Beyond, and a Harbinger accompanying the map boss.
- Atlas Strategy: Adopted the Wandering Path strategy, ensuring increased quantity, rarity, and pack size on maps.
↖ Loot Filtering
Strict loot filter: Eliminated low-value currency like Jew orbs, transmutes, and others. Planning to remove items worth less than a chaos for better efficiency.
- Currency: Comparable raw currency drops to the previous experiment. More raw divines but fewer Eldrich orbs.
- Divination Cards: Notable increase in divination cards.
- Maps: Received a considerable number of Vile Temple Maps, among others.
- Total Value: Total drop value estimated at 11,524 chaos or 49 divines, with the most valuable being the Voidborne Requer key and the Sephiroth card.
↖ Financial Breakdown
- Investment: Spent 6540 chaos or about 28 divines on mapping supplies.
- Profit: Grossed a profit of 11,524 chaos or 49 divines, resulting in a net profit of 4,984 chaos or 21.3 divines.
- Efficiency: Average profit per hour estimated at around 3.3 divines, potentially increasing to 4 divines when including the value of specific unique items and clusters.
↖ Key Takeaways
- The Power of Quantity and Rarity: Even with a moderate amount of magic find (40 quantity and 158 rarity), there was a significant difference in profit.
- Balancing Character Build: It's feasible for many characters to maintain a decent amount of quantity and rarity without sacrificing too much survivability or damage.
The results are evident - magic find does make a significant difference. While hitting the jackpot remains elusive, the consistent increase in profit underscores its importance. As we continue this series, we hope to delve even deeper into the nuances of magic find in Path of Exile.
