In Path of Exile, your deaths were mostly because you did not know what you were doing. If your build is now “ready” to start farming poe currency and maps and you have progressed a lot more on the atlas than you were able to on HC, but now you are sort of lost on how to get started. What should you do?
In fact, if you want to farm mainly currency, do every single map T1-T8. Then, do only the T9 vault map. Don’t do any Tier 10. Do only T11 Spider Forest. Do all the unique maps that you can do to get as close to 100/157 as possible to increase your chances of sustaining T9 Vault maps. Roll at least 80% quant Vault maps and use Zana’s Fortune Favours the Brave mod and enjoy farming Hoarder and Abandoned Wealth cards till you have enough currency to buy T12-T16 maps and complete all of them and upgrade your gear to do Shaper.
Along the way, you’ll get a Shaper’s Orb to upgrade a Tier 10 Map. Use that Shaper Orb to upgrade the T10 Orchard map so you can completely isolate T9 Vault and easily sustain T9 vaults. Once you have enough damage and currency, reshape the atlas and upgrade T9 vault to T14 vault and farm even more currency. Sometime once you have enough currency, also start learning how to sextant block because you need to use sextants to help you sustain T14 Vaults.
If you have already completed some of the t9/t10 maps, you can’t still do something like this. Because the other T9 and T10 maps will interfere will your T9 Vault map drops. Remove them from your atlas. If you haven’t yet done any t14/15s, yes you can (by shaping vaults to t14). Otherwise, you’ll have to unshape either your t9/10s or t14/15s as other poster said.
pls don’t even start trying to min max your atlas when you just have no clue about what the atlas is about in the first place. Experience it this league and get knowledge and you may start doing the min/max part in the next league. When you do not have time to get currency in Path of Exile, buy chaos orbs on U4GM is always an excellent choice, and they are cheap.
