Farming currency in Path of Exile is a great way to get stronger, as you’ll either use them to modify your rare gear or have them up for PoE trade in exchange for those you want or need.
And the best time to do that would be now, during the Delirium League. To make the most of the challenge league, read up on our farming tips.
What is Delirium?
Before anything else, a bit of info on the Delirium League for those that are just joining in on the fun. In the POE Delirium league, maps will have a Mirror of Delirium.
So if an exile enters it, the monsters in the area become stronger but will have more rewarding drops. Aside from the usual gear and PoE Orbs, they’ll also drop Simulacrum splinters.
Collecting 300 splinters gives you a Simulacrum, which creates a portal that could lead to any of these six locations: Lunacy’s Watch, The Bridge Enraptured, The Syndrome Encampment, Hysteriagate, or Oriath Delusion. Here, there are stronger monsters, which in turn means better drops.
Builds, Builds, Builds
It’s common in Path of Exile to deal with hordes upon hordes of monsters, and Delirium’s monster mechanics are hardly a departure from that. So despite the improvement of all sorts of build types, those with AoE or multiple-target core skills are still king.
Thankfully, these kinds of builds are the most popular, and therefore the most common and easiest to find. A simple Google search should give you a lot of them. When you search for them, make sure that you look for the latest version of these builds.
Also, when choosing a build, you should take into consideration whether its play style suits yours and if it fits your budget. This way, you’ll be getting the build that you’ll actually enjoy playing.
Nerfs and New Locations
As if mowing down hordes of monsters aren’t enough to get you lots of PoE currency, Grinding Gear Games made Delirium mobs easier to kill by lowering their life and defense. Their attacks have also been dialed down, so gone are the times when players can be killed by the usual Delirium mobs with one shot–a huge drag.
Whether it’s due to player base demand or a natural result of game balancing, it doesn’t matter; what does is that monsters being easier to kill means you get to farm more at a given time.
In fact, because of these changes, Delirium is considered as the best time to farm for PoE Currency. This rather tedious process has never been easier, so make the most of this opportunity while it lasts. Do note, however, that mobs in the Simulacrum are as tough as ever, so be ready if you plan to take on them.
Aside from the mobs becoming easier to kill, you also need to choose where you’ll be farming wisely. Good examples include Blood Aqueduct and Harbor Bridge.
On the other hand, maps are also good choices, if not better. When choosing which maps to farm, the ones that are either long and linear or open work best. For the former, Beach work well, while Dunes is perfect for the latter.
Also, if you plan to make the most of a map, you’ll be going back and forth, as mobs won’t spawn in areas that you haven’t been in. Lastly, there are environmental objects that you can interact with.
These are noteworthy:
melon-like ones spawn weak monsters
round ones that don’t have stripes shoot projectiles if you touch them
gem-like formations spawn strong mobs
With this, you’ll be able to spawn a lot, and therefore farm a lot.
So there you have it–the essential tips to help you make the most of farming in the Delirium League. Try them out and get stronger, richer, or even both.
