PoE 3.23 Essence Farming Guide: Everything You Need To Know

Hello, PoE Enthusiasts! Today, we're diving into Affliction League Essence farming. Essences are like the golden eggs of PoE – always in demand and surprisingly easy to collect. This guide will turn you into an Essence farming pro. So, let's break down the nitty-gritty of Essence farming in a way that even your grandma could understand!


PoE 3.23 Essence Farming Guide: Everything You Need To Know


Essential Mechanics

  • The Basics: These are grouped by tiers and types, crucial for mastering the use of Remnants of Corruption.
  • Monsters: Start in stasis, click thrice, unleash the beast!
  • Tier-1 Map Efficiency: Perfect for newbies or low-budget builds.
  • Essence Corruption: These can lead to different outcomes, but the best ones are upgrading the essence tier or group. Pro tip: Focus on corrupting Group E Essences (like Scorn, Misery, and Dread), which can upgrade to the sought-after Group F Essences like Insanity and Horror.


Strategic Corruption

  • When to Use Remnants: They're pricey, so use them judiciously. Your target? Those valuable Group E Essences.
  • Corrupt Wisely: If you find a monster with a mix of Screaming and Shrieking Essences, corrupt it for a chance to duplicate high-tier Essences.


Atlas Passives

  • Setting Up: Your strategy involves allocating all the Essence-related passive notables.
  • Small Passives Dilemma: It's a matter of strategy whether to allocate small passives for a chance of Remnants. The key is maximizing the Essence yield.
  • Prolific Essence: More monsters, more Essences.
  • Crystal Resonance: Duplicate those shrieking Essences.
  • Amplified Energies: Upgrade those Essences to higher tiers.
  • Crystal Lattice: Chance for triple Essences equals triple the fun and profit.


Map Strategy & Master Missions

  • Choose the Right Maps: Look for linear layouts like Strand, Atoll, or Jungle Valley 
  • Master Mission Synergy: Einhar and Niko missions complement Essence farming well. Niko's missions, in particular, can enhance your damage and speed, making your farming runs smoother.
  • Spot and Corrupt: Find those Essence monsters and corrupt wisely.
  • Combine with Other Mechanics: Mix Essences with Beasts or Harbingers for an extra profit boost.



Sextant Use: Awakened and Elevated sextants can be beneficial, but they have a catch – they can ruin your Essences by preventing further corruption. The community seems to prefer not using sextants for Essence farming.


Farming Results

  • Testing Various Methods: We ran different configurations of sextant use and small passive allocations. Surprisingly, Elevated sextants combined with the right passive choices yielded higher profits.
  • Avoid Common Mistakes: Not all Essence upgrades are profitable. Check the market prices before upgrading or selling.


Special Mention

Memory Strategy: This involves fighting Rogue Exiles trapped in Essences. It's a profitable and fun mechanic, especially as it mimics the Atlas passive effects.


Selling Essences


Tips & Tricks

  • Early League Focus: Great for early league currency boost.
  • Late League Stability: Essences remain valuable even late in the league.
  • Stay Informed: Prices change, so keep up-to-date for the best profits.


Concluding Insights

  • Elevated Sextants Are Key: They significantly boost your profits.
  • Allocate Remnant Chance Passives: They're worth the investment.
  • Smart Use of Remnants: Focus on high-value Essences.
  • Shrieking vs. Deafening Essences: Sometimes, it's more profitable to sell lower-tier Essences.
  • Harvest Swapping: A great way to turn low-value Essences into gold.


Essence farming is your golden ticket to consistent early-game currency. It's a strategy that stays strong throughout PoE 3.23 league, thanks to the unending demand for Essences by crafters.
