Drop-restricted item

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Certain items were only available for a certain period of time, then were either modified or removed from the drop pool. Others were only available through specific leagues or race seasons. These items are now only obtainable from players who possess existing copies.

League-specific items

League-specific items can only be obtained when the corresponding league flag is active (i.e. during the league, from Zana mods, etc).

League-specific base items

In some challenge leagues, base items are created which do not drop in permanent leagues. One way of acquiring them is to corrupt unique items and gain corrupted rare items then use vendor recipes to gain back a unidentified rare item.

Talismans can be obtained in the permanent leagues as Safehouse rewards that linked to Thane Jorgin the Banished. Certain divination cards also granted random talismans, as well as some Delve rewards chest. They can also drop from monsters or chests in Legion encounters.

League-specific unique items

In most challenge leagues, unique items are created which do not drop in permanent leagues.

  • Using Reliquary Scarabs would improve the drop rate of uniques found in maps with league modifiers.

Note: For league-mechanics that have been introduced to core, the unique may be either enabled as world drop or boss drop. For example, killing bosses of their respective league: bosses of Warbands-themed map, Abyss/Delve/Synthesis bosses, The Vaal Omnitect, Mastermind, The Pale Council; finishing Beachhead maps, Breachlords' domains and Safehouses; killing monsters in Breach; doing Prophecy and open Perandus chests, etc.


Legacy items

Legacy items are discontinued versions of items that have been subjected to balance changes which do not affect existing copies of the item. Due to their limited availability, their prices can be high.

Most legacy items can be updated to their newest stats by using a Divine OrbDivine OrbStack Size: 10Randomises the numeric values of the random modifiers on an itemRight click this item then left click a magic, rare or unique item to apply it.

. In that case, a Divine Orb will only change the present mods to the new value, and not add additional ones. These orbs won't work when the base item was changed, either.

Legacy names

Certain unique items have had their names changed. Those items that were obtained before the name change was implemented will forever retain the old name.

Legacy modifiers

Some item affixes were changed or removed from the drop pool altogether for balance reasons.

Removed items

Certain items have been removed from the drop table, usually because they were replaced with another item. These items can only be obtained by trading with other players in a permanent league.

Event Items

Event Rewards

Each race and player-versus-player season offers rewards of existing items with alternate art for reaching certain point breakpoints within the season. Event-specific rewards (and alternate art counterparts of these) are also offered for placing well in the race or the season. All rewards are placed into remove-only tabs that can be viewed from any league, but once removed, they remain in the league they were taken into and cannot be transferred to other leagues. These rewards cannot be viewed or removed from the stash in temporary leagues until four weeks have passed since the beginning of the league.

Event Prizes

Main page: Event prize

At the end of each event and at the end of the season, unique trophy items are distributed among the best race and pvp participants. They follow the same rules as Event Rewards.
