What is Orb Of Fusing In Path Of Exile Game?

And here comes the brief introduction that an Orb of Fusing in PoE is a currency item that could be used to re-roll the links between sockets on piece of armour or on a weapon. Long words short, when you are using an Orb of Fusing, you can change the links between the sockets on an item. The color and number of sockets still remain unchanged.

And right now, Orb Of Fusing Price In Path Of Exile Is

~4 Orbs of Fusing = 1 Chaos Orb

How To Farm Orb Of Fusing In PoE?

The first method is: In Path of Exile, Orbs of Fusing are uncommon PoE currency items that could be dropped by killed monsters, destructible containers and chest. Moreover, you also can find them from Arcanist's Strongboxes.

The second method is: You can buy an Orb of Fusing for 4 Jeweller's Orb from an NPC named Yeena. Usually, this is the same as the market rate for jewellers and fusings, therefore, this is a fine trade with the NPC, unlike some other currency conversions that they offer.

The third method is: Farm fast. You can put on some item quantity without dropping clear speed. And then farm low tier maps. and 6 socket items are your main income for fusings.

The fourth method is (unless you have to link that specific weapon you have, cause the rolls really matter): purchase a linked weapon, or buy divination cards that offer you one.

Last but not least, the fifth method is (if you just need a 6L): find out where a div card drops that offers you the 6L and farm that map.

All in all, you should keep in mind that there is no target farming for fusings. The more you kill (speed) and the more you drop per kill (quantity) the more fusings you will earn per hour, as well as other Path of Exile currency to buy fusings. Anyway, don't forget to alch your maps!

How To Use Orb Of Fusing In Path Of Exile?

As you know Orbs of Fusing are quite expensive and most useful when you acquire high end gear. And for me, I try not to use them when I am leveling, they will get a lot better later, and I will need a lot of them.

Orbs of Fusing are primarily used to modify the linked sockets on an item. If an item has some quality, each 1% quality improves the result by 1%. While the chance of obtaining three or four linked sockets is relatively high, the chance of obtaining five or six linked sockets is very low, and on average requires hundreds or even thousands of attempts. Therefore, here comes a TIP for you guys, please always use your Armourer's Scraps and Blacksmith's Whetstones before trying to get 5 or 6 links.

We have done a test involving 100 000 Orb of Fusings concluded that 836 to 1244 (average 1000) Orb of Fusings are needed to six-link a six-socketed, 20% qualitied item with a 95% confidence interval. And that means a ~77% chance to six-link within 1500 Orbs of Fusing.

And the above statistic means it is not worthwhile to use the Crafting Bench recipe instead of using Orbs of Fusing manually, however it is still an alternative to consider for risk-averse players to avoid randomness.

The lead developer Chris Wilson has ever stated that the odds for 6 linked sockets were very close to 1/1500. NOTE that this was prior to the item quality effect change from version 2.2.0 though, which means the consumed quality back then was able to improve these odds by "more than double".

However, right now, the chance of 5 linked is about 100-120 Orbs of Fusing, and the chance of 6 linked is about 1500 Orbs of Fusing.

The following chart is the odds of a PoE 5 link and 6 link.

As you can see these recipes also can be applied to corrupted items at the cost of using one Vaal Orb for every Orb of Fusing required. And unfortunately, right now, this is the only way the links on a corrupted item could be modified.

Last but not least, one player also can sell Clarissa an Orb of Fusing in exchange for one Orb of Chance.
