10 Most Useful Unique Items in Path of Exile
Whether you think Path of Exile is either innovative, confusing, lackluster, or all of the above, you can at least play it like any other action role-playing game. Like with most ARPGs, there are unique items that offer great power to characters who wield them. It's no exception in Path of Exile, wherein unique Path of Exile items are highly prized and highly priced. Here are some of the very best ones.
Also known as Shavs in the game, this chest armor is one of the most expensive PoE items in the game due to having the property "Chaos Damage does not bypass Energy Shield" along with a good amount of energy shield. This property makes tons of glass cannon builds possible.
A popular one-handed mace seen as an enabler of many builds, its most prominent use is in a build called "Rainbownuke" due to the appearance of its skills' discharge. This is an expensive item due to "Skills Chain +1 times" and “30% chance to Cast Socketed Lightning Spells on Hit” properties, reflecting the mythological weapon it takes inspiration from.
This is a greatly sought-after unique amulet that offers +80 to +100 to all attributes. Usually paired along with Mjolner, both of these unique items are prized for their huge stat boosts.
A belt dropped by Atziri, it comes in for 4 versions—physical, cold, fire, and lightning. It's a well-rounded belt that gives armor, damage, resistances, and a chance to freeze, ignite, or shock. It also has elemental leech, which can go well with either a crit build or just tremendous amounts of damage.
Yet another one of the most expensive items in the game, this allows you to steal mods from Rare monsters upon killing them. It's is as rare as it is powerful; players often have to take extra measures to find it, including stacking up on magic find by using divination cards, using Orbs of Chance on items, and so on.
A unique flask, this item provides 40-60% item rarity or 12-18% item quantity, which makes it great for farming runs. It also gives +6% to maximum elemental resistances while in effect, which is handy.
Yet another flask because they're truly convenient, and pretty much all classes can use them. This gives you an armor boost, along with a block/spell block during flash effect. Such a powerful flask makes it very much sought after, so you might actually want to pay attention to something as seemingly simple as a potion flask in this game.
Taste of Hate
Pardon for the abundance of flasks in this list, but they're truly the utility item you can't do without. This one is mostly for physical damage builds that use armor for damage mitigation. This gives you "30% of Physical Damage taken as Cold Damage during flask effect” as you can then have high cold resistance to negate most of that 30%.
This is for archer builds out there that are looking for more piercing damage. This item is the only one in the game that offers “Projectile Damage increased by Arrow Pierce Chance”; nothing else comes close. Certain builds benefit greatly from Arrow Pierce, such as Poison Arrow builds.
This one is for more effective farming as it has 85% increased rarity if it has perfect implicit and perfect roll on the ring. That's perfect for high IIQ/IIR builds designed for full-on farming. If you want to start profiting in the game through farming, this item is a must.
