[3.13] Highwind's LOOTFILTER

This loot filter is large and comprehensive, but it's organized well enough to be modified. It was written from scratch with some inspiration from some popular filters. If you like the filter or find bugs I would appreciate the feedback.

Filter Details
▻ Hides worthless items based on zone level and rarity.
▻ Increases the font size for items you want to pick up.
▻ Distinguishes sub-categories of items for vendor recipes or items of higher value.
▻ Generates loud sounds for valuable items.

Large Filters
The large filters (L) have +4 font size than the small (S) filter for most items.

Mapping Filter
The mapping filter is almost the same as normal/leveling filter. The difference is that it hides wisdom scrolls, low essences, worthless divination cards, and non-quality gems sold in town. Wisdom scrolls are not worth picking up because you can get them more efficiently by selling transmutations, whetstones, armourer's scraps, and portal scrolls to NPCs.

Semi-Strict Filter
The semi-strict filter is almost the same as the mapping filter. The main difference is that it only shows 50+ gloves/boots/helmets, 56+ weapons, and 60+ body armor. It also hides Utility flasks, <5% quality gems, and low essences.

Normal Shows all currency except low value scraps. Plays a sound for currency worth 0.25c+.
Strict Hides currency worth <0.03c. These include scrolls, transmutations, augmentations, whetstones, and armour scraps. Plays a sound for currency worth 0.4c+.
Very Strict Hides currency worth <0.1c. This includes chromatic orbs and alterations. Plays a sound for currency worth 0.4c+.

Normal Shows all useful rares. This includes DropLevel 50+ weapons/shields/body armour and 40+ gloves/boots/helmets while mapping.
Strict Hides most rares while mapping. Rare accessories are shown for chaos/regal recipes. Ilvl 83+ rares are also shown.
Very Strict Hides all rares in maps except very valuable ones like Steel Rings.

Normal Sound removed from T1-5 maps progressively.
Strict Sound removed from T1-5 maps progressively. Hides T1-5 maps progressively.
Very Strict Sound removed from T1-5 maps progressively. Hides T1-5 maps progressively.

Normal Shows all uniques. Plays a sounds for all of them.
Strict Shows all uniques. Plays a sound for any potentially worth 3c+.
Very Strict Hides uniques worth <3c. Plays a sound for any potentially worth 3c+. This is never guaranteed to be accurate so use at your own risk. Potential valuable league-specific uniques are usually shown but many do not make sounds.

Divination Cards
Normal Hides worthless divination cards. Plays a sound for cards worth 2c+.
Strict Hides divination cards that are worth <1c. Plays a sound for cards worth 2c+.
Very Strict Hides divination cards that are worth <2c. Plays a sound for cards worth 2c+.

Normal Shows all gems. Plays a sound for 14%+ quality gems, level 19+ gems, and valuable Drop-Only gems such as Empower.
Strict Hides <5% quality gems and and worthless Drop-Only gems. Plays a sound for 14%+ quality gems, level 19+ gems, and valuable Drop-Only gems such as Empower.
Very Strict Hides <10% quality gems. Plays a sound for 17%+ quality gems, level 19+ gems, and valuable Drop-Only gems such as Empower.

Normal Shows all jewels. Plays a sound for rare jewels before maps.
Strict Hides magic jewels except Cluster jewels.
Very Strict Hides magic/rare jewels except Cluster jewels.

5 Links, Shaper/Elder items, Chromatic RGB items, Chisel items, and Flasks also vary slightly.
Editing Tools

These tools can be used to edit the colors/sounds of the filter as well as test changes. If you need help with something more specific please see the "Manual Edits" section.

  • FilterBlast: allows real-time editing of filters and themes for testing. You can see map icons and hear the sounds of drops with this tool.
  • GrindingZone: a web-based tool that is similar to Filtration. Allows saving of color themes so that they can be applied multiple times. If you don't like my filter colors then I recommend using this. Click the "Filter Shaper" link at the top and then the "Load" button on the right.
  • FilterBlade: NeverSink's filter editor. My filter is not well supported by this tool.
Optional Filters
Many features can be enabled with FilterBlast or by uncommenting #Disabled Blocks. See the image below for an example of what this looks like. This feature can be used to show chance bases and highlighted rares by item class, which should help solo self-found players.

Manual Edits

In order to customize the filter you need to know how it is organized first. When you create a custom filter you should be added to the proper section in the file.

1. Currency/Prophecies
2. General (Incubators, Quest Items, Talismans)
3. Maps and Map Fragments
4. Gems
5. Divination Cards
6. 5-6 links, 6 sockets
7. Enchanted items
8. Uniques
9. Influenced items (Shaper/Elder/Crusader/Hunter/Warlord/Redeemer)
10. Explicit Mods (identified items, Veiled/Synthesized/Fractured)
11. Jewels
12. Chance bases
13. Flasks
14. Crafting bases (ilvl 84+, drop level 70+, e.g. Steel Rings)
15. Chromatic RGB links
16. Animate Weapons (white items)
17. Pre-Filter (hides and colors equipment)
18. Normal/Magic items
19. Rare Accessories (Breach Rings, Stygian Vises, Belts, Amulets, Rings)
21. Highlighted Rares (disabled by default)
22. 60+ Rares
23. Leveling Rares

Click here to view the filter. If you are trying to add a filter that affects rare/normal/magic equipment then in most cases you should add it before the Pre-Filter section or to the top of the Explicit Mods sections. If you are not sure how to do this then I recommend looking at some guides or studying the code in the filter.
Update Tool
Download: https://github.com/ffhighwind/PoE-Price-Lister/releases
Executable Dependency: Microsoft .NET Framework
Source Code Dependencies: Visual Studio 2017 C#, FileHelpers (NuGet Package), Json.NET
CSV Files: all uniques, uniques by type, enchantments

This tool updates the uniques, divination cards, and enchantments sections. It requires an internet connection to work properly. It supports Softcore, Hardcore, and Hardcore Friendly pricing.

It starts by loading the filter values from the repository. You can also use the "Load" button if you want to test a modified version of the filter. The "Generate Filters" button will generate new filters based on poe.ninja and filter values. It will use small filters from the executable location when possible, otherwise it pulls the filter data from the online repository.

Macro and Tools

  • Auto Hotkey
    A macro program that uses scripts. This is required for the links below.
  • Lutcikaur's Script
    Allows for fast logouts, in-game item pricing, scrolling through menus, overlays/trackers, and more. Press F10 to setup the program once it's running. The main problem with this is it doesn't price rares like the next macro, so I recommend using both.
  • PoE Trade Macro
    In game item pricer via poe.trade. Includes PoE Item Info Script (info below). Works in windowed or windowed fullscreen mode. CTRL+D to search for items by name (uniques/cards). CTRL+ALT+D to search by stats (rares). You should edit the default search settings to make this easier to use. CTRL+Q to open poe.trade with the item search. CTRL+W to open the wikipedia for the item. CTRL+L to change leagues.
  • PoE Item Info Script
    A script that describes your items. CTRL+C will list the affixes for rare and uniques and the range of values that their stats can have. Useful for determining if an item has open affixes for crafting. Can also help determine if a unique is worth divining.
  • PoE Whisper Notifier
    Scans your chat log for specific keywords and makes sound they pop up. Allows you to tab out or play without constantly reading chat. Good for challenges such as Liches in Abyss league. Includes: Lich|Ulaman|Amanamu. Excludes: WTB|LF.
  • Currency Cop
    Calculates your total worth in the league. Can potentially be used to calculate how much currency you earn on average.

Crafting Tips

▻ Use poedb mods to help with fossil crafting.
▻ When crafting physical weapons or ES body armor start by using Perfect Fossils to get 28-30% quality.

+3 Skill Bow (ilvl 64+)
▻ NOTE: Porcupine Divination Cards do not work
▻ Craft Reduced Attribute Requirements (18-32%) and then color
▻ Alt until +2 bow skill
▻ Augment for suffix
▻ Regal and pray for a suffix. Start over if you do not like the results.
▻ Craft "Cannot roll attack mods"
▻ Exalt until +1 skills. This can take 2 exalts if you did not Regal a suffix.
▻ Change the crafted mod
▻ Exalt

+3 Skill Bow (alternative, not guaranteed)
▻ Fossils: Prismatic + Metallic + Corroded

+2 Minion Convoking Wand (ilvl 84+)
▻ Fossils: Corroded + Metallic + Shuddering + Jagged

Body Armour (ilvl 86+, Vaal Regalia, Astral Plate, etc)

▻ Encrusted Fossil until 4+ white sockets (combine with Perfect Fossils as needed)
▻ Bestiary Dupe: Fenumal Plagued Arachnind (keep one item as a backup)

▻ Regal
▻ Split with Fenumal Plagued Arachnid
▻ Use imprint on one of the new bases

+3 Skill Staff (ilvl 55+)
▻ WARNING! THIS NO LONGER WORKS!! I am only keeping this here as a reference. You can now make +5 skill staves, but there is no easy way to do this.
▻ Craft a suffix
▻ Regal +2 elemental skills (35 attempts on average). Start over on fail.
▻ Craft Multi Mod, No Casting Mods, No Attack Mods, Flat Mana
▻ Exalt for +1 skills
▻ Remove crafted mods
Web Resources

  • Poe Map
    A website for trading maps of the same tier. Extremely useful early league.
  • Official PoE Trade
    Official item indexer for player trading.
  • PoE Trade/XYZ
    Searches items on the trade forums and in public stash tabs. Includes constant live searches for items.
  • PoE App
    Alternative item indexer. Only searches public stash tabs. Includes the ability to block players by name and skip AFK players.
  • Path of Building
    Offline build calculator that makes min-maxing easy.
  • Chromatic Calculator
    Tells you the cheapest way to color your gem sockets using chromatics. An alternative method involves using the crafting bench and adding/removing sockets. This works well for crafting off-colors on an item and is recommend for crafting 4 off-colors on a 4 socket item.
  • Mikelat's Aura Calculator
    Helps you plan the auras in your build.
  • PoE Ninja
    Price graphs for the last 7 days. Also includes the builds and DPS for the top ranked characters.
  • PoE Antiquary
    Graphs of unique prices for the past few leagues.
  • PoE Lab
    Layout for all Labyrinths including the locations of secret passages and Argus.
  • PoE Builds
    Statistics for the league from skill gems to Ascendancies. Describes the ladder meta.
  • PoE Prices - Item Pricer
    Prices items for you. I've heard this works fairly well for rare items.
  • Uniques Timeline
    Lists all uniques in the order they were released. Useful if you want to know what the latest uniques are. If you don't see the most recent uniques listed then you should check the current league page on the wiki.
  • PoE Affix
    Site to for item affixes. Currently outdated. Use poedb instead.
  • EXP Penalty Calculator
    Shows you the percentage of exp you're actually earning. It's best to compare EXP/hour (/reset_xp) after farming an area but this may still be useful.
  • Forum Tags
    Formatting for forum posts. Useful if you want to make a build guide or attractive threads.

Sustaining Maps
Use PoE Map to trade for maps that you do not have. Use Alchemy Orbs on T6+ maps. Use chisels on red maps worth 3c+ and scour them first if needed. Use Vaal Orbs on twinned maps and maps with multiple bosses. Vaaled maps can drop Sacrifice fragments and generally have more IIQ/IIR. Vaaled T15 maps can also turn into Vaal Temple which is worth a lot. Corrupted T16 Guardians kills can be sold in trade 820.

Use Sextants, Sacrifice Fragments, and Zana mods sparingly. They're best used in groups where members are sharing the map cost. Bloodlines, Domination, Onslaught, and Breach are usually the best Zana mods. Pack size is the most important stat for more maps. Map IIQ and pack size increase map drops. Magic find equipment (including IIQ) does not increase map drops.
Currency Conversions
You buy certain currency types from NPCs. You can also vendor certain ones to convert them into other types.

NPC Conversions (usually better than poe.trade)
▻ Whetstones/Transmutes/Armourer's Scraps ➞ Scrolls of Wisdom
▻ Jewellers ➞ Fusings
▻ Chances ➞ Scourings
▻ Bulk quality items ➞ Gemcutter's, Baubles
▻ Corrupted 6 links ➞ Divines

NPC Conversions (worse than poe.trade, but useful for SSF)
▻ 3 Sextants ➞ upgraded Sextant
▻ Alterations ➞ Jewellers
▻ Scourings ➞ Regrets
▻ Augments ➞ Alts
▻ Regrets ➞ Alchs
▻ Whetstones ➞ Baubles
▻ Chaos ➞ Chisels (Zana)
▻ Map + 20% hammer ➞ Chisel
Pro Tips
▻ You can disable skills like Blood Rage by weapon swapping as long as the gem is in your weapon/shield.
▻ You can disable skills like Vaal Cyclone by picking up the gear/gem and then putting it back on. This can help avoid dying to Frost Bearers without logging out. Be careful not to drop or delete the item.
▻ Only use Remnants of Corruption on purple essences. Always do this on two or more purple essences. These can turn into the four valuable essences.
▻ Loreweave costs 1 jeweller to fully socket it. This can be used in combination with crafting benches to color it cheaply.

New Player Tips
▻ Join channel global 820 to share and league challenges and map trials.
▻ Join trade channel 820 to buy/sell league challenges, boss kills, atlas completions, etc.
▻ You can remove an Ascendancy point for 5 regrets.
▻ You can change your Ascendancy by removing all Ascendancy points, completing lab again, and then clicking the fireplace.

hi, i cant download your filter
The install instructions were at the top by the download link. How to Install

1. Download the filter
There's a "download" button at the top of the pastebin which saves the filter as a txt file.

2. Change the file extension from .txt to .filter
When you download the file from pastebin it will put it in the wrong format. You need to change the file extension or it will not work. Enable showing file extensions and then rename the extension.
Windows 7
Windows 10 same process

3. Put the file in Documents\My Games\Path of Exile
Go to Start, then click Documents and navigate to the proper folder and paste the file there.

4. Enable the filter in game
Press ESC and go to Options > UI and scroll to the very bottom. Change your loot filter here.

There is a chromatic recipe already. They're purple in border. However, I have them hidden in T7+ maps. I don't feel they're worth picking up at higher tier maps. You can edit the loot filter how you want. They're listed in the "chromatic" section in the middle of the filter.
