[3.5] 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.

Mapping Filter
The mapping filter is almost the same as normal 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 selling transmutations, whetstones, and armourer's scraps to NPCs.

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 T1-7 maps progressively.
Strict Sound removed from T1-8 maps progressively.
Very Strict Sound removed from T1-8 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 1c+.
Very Strict Hides uniques worth <1c. 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 valuable cards.
Strict Hides common divination cards that are worth <0.25c. Plays a sound for cards worth 1c+.
Very Strict Hides common divination cards that are worth <0.25c. Plays a sound for cards worth 1c+.

Normal Shows all gems. Plays a sound for 10%+ quality gems.
Strict Hides worthless <5% quality gems and and worthless Drop-Only gems. Plays a sound for 10%+ quality gems.
Very Strict Hides worthless <10% quality gems and a few more Drop-Only gems such as Added Chaos Damage. Plays a sound for 17%+ quality gems.

Normal Plays a sound for rare jewels in T1-5 maps.
Strict Hides magic jewels in maps. Plays a sound for rare jewels in T1-5 maps. Abyss jewels are always shown.
Very Strict Hides magic and rare jewels in maps. Plays a sound for shown rare jewels.

5 Links, Shaper/Elder items, Chromatic RGB items, Chisel items, and Flasks also vary slightly.
Optional Filters
Many features can be enabled with FilterBlast or by uncommenting code. See the image below for how to enable Shaper's Voice for currency drops. You can also highlight rares by item class, which should help solo self-found players. Other optional features include magic jewels, chance bases, and vendor recipe items (chromatic orbs, chisels, and glassblower's baubles).

This tool was hacked together and lacks documentation. Don't expect it to be easy to modify. It requires an internet connection to work properly. It only works for Softcore, but you can view the Hardcore values using the tool and manually edit the filters if you want to.

How it works: It starts by loading a list of all uniques from a local csv file. Then it loads price values from poe.ninja and my github filter. Finally, it generates filter data based on this input. If "Safer Values" is enabled then it will split the difference between the expected and filter values and favor higher values for uniques. Without this enabled it will output based entirely on poe.ninja's values.

Using the tool: My filter values will automatically be loaded into the tool, but if you use custom values then you can use the load button. Make sure "Safer Values" is checked to ensure accuracy and reduce fluctuation of values. Generate the updated filter values and then copy them into your filter files. Make sure to hide some of these in the strict filters. Finally, load the updated filter back into the tool for a sanity check and manual edits.

▻ Add border to more valuable Shaper/Elder items. Remove the map icon from low value ones in the strict and very strict filters for leagues without rares.
▻ Fix the pricing so anything without a price on poe.ninja isn't assumed to be worthless (use filter value).

▻ Fixed map colors: Spider Lair.

▻ Fixed colors of all maps.

▻ Added 13/13 of the new uniques and the new fated unique.
▻ Updated unique/divination card values.
▻ Updated the Price Lister and changed the csv to UTF8.
▻ KNOWN ISSUE: I know that the map colors are not correct. This is a bug that is also affecting Elder spawns, and has nothing to do with my filter. To fix this issue I may have to type in every map name, but I am going to wait a week in hopes that they fix it.

▻ Fixed a map fragment bug with the regular filter.
▻ Fixed a few inconsistencies between filters using a diff check.
▻ Changed most equipment icons from star to square.
▻ Changed crafting bases from green to blue. Valuable ones like Steel Rings are now red. Shaper/Elder items are still green.
▻ Changed the icon of jewels and gems to star.
▻ Reduced the background color and text size of most low value crafting bases.
▻ Added all 4-links when leveling. Previously some low level ones were hidden.

▻ Added 9/14 new uniques
▻ Added 5 new Divination Cards + The Nurse

▻ Added a NoRares filter. I have not tested it out, but it should be better than the other filters.

▻ Changed Maelström back to Maelstr.

▻ Fixed high value fossil colors/sounds.

▻ Changed "hardcore friendly" to only work on items worth 4c+ in hardcore instead of 2c+.
▻ Fixed filter encoding so it's UTF-8, including the font enlarger. The CSV file is UTF-7. This allows Maelström Staff and Mjölner to parse correctly so I don't have to special case them.

▻ Fixed fossils so they don't show up as errors. I used the wrong item class.

▻ Updated the filter uniques/divination card values.
▻ Added loud sounds to valuable Fossils/Resonators.
▻ Added colors/beams to the header information.
▻ Added loud sounds to Shaper/Elder items with rare bases (Opal Rings, etc) and certain 83+ bases.

▻ Added "Vial of" incursion currency.
▻ Removed Perandus Coins based on StackSize. Stacks of 1-2 are now hidden in some filters. There is no Perandus Zana mod this league, so it really doesn't matter.

▻ Fixed the tool so it doesn't spam the user if the csv file is missing or a website is down.
▻ Fixed 6S/6L (e.g. Tabula) prices in the tool. Previously it was finding the item with the least sockets instead of special casing these uniques.

▻ Added Elder Shaper Rare sound themes.

▻ Moved Elder/Shaper to a lower priority than highlighted rares.
▻ Removed the border from Elder/Shaper items. They already have +/* symbols so it's redundant.

▻ Added New Divination Cards: No Traces, The Realm, Left to Fate, The Ruthless Ceinture, The Blazing Fire, The Eye of the Dragon
▻ Updated 72+ section (Crystal Belts, etc) to 70+. This may result in some 71-72 drop level items being shown that are not supposed to be.
▻ Changed maps in the Very Strict filter to be the same as the Strict filter. There's too many changes to the atlas to know what to hide.
▻ Added Stygian Vise belt base type. I'm assuming this is drop level 70+ and valuable. If it isn't then it will be detected as a normal low value belt.
▻ Added a purple border to Elder/Shaper rares, but I may need to brighten it. These have a higher filter priority than other rares. I don't think I am going to highlight normal/magic Shaper/Elder items because it adds too much code.


▻ Reduced the level range for 3-4 link normal/magic items. The blue border ends at level 10 and are hidden after level 20.

▻ Changed the 83+ rares range for gloves/boots/helmets slightly.
▻ Fixed some block switch names.

▻ Swapped the blue/green colors between chaos/regal recipes rares. This makes 75+ and 83+ rares stand out more.
▻ Removed 50-58 body armours from 75+ rares. There were far too many body armours shown compared to other rares.
▻ Fixed the color of 75+ hidden rare armour.

▻ Added toggled highlights for shields.

▻ Increased the size of Divination Cards.
▻ Increased the brightness of Perandus Coins.
▻ Massive overhaul of the rares again. I am really considering adding differentiation between 60+ and 75+ recipes again. If I do then I will be changing 72/73+ highlights to 75+.
▻ Removed the default border from 83/84 rares.
▻ Added toggled border highlights for rares 60+, 72/73+, and 83/84+.

▻ Fixed an error in optional highlighted DEX and INT armour bases.

▻ Changed mid value DropLevel 72+ normal/magic items. (Spiked Gloves, Gripped Gloves, Fingerless Silk Gloves). Increased the size of ilvl 84+ items and decreased for the rest. Removed ilvl <84 items from the strict filters.

▻ Removed ilvl 6+ 1-2 Socket normal/magic items. Starting from Ledge you will see a lot less normal/magic items. This is to help with item spam, especially while doing prophecies at high level.

▻ Decreased the border brightness of 72+ rares, slightly.
▻ I am not adding positional sounds. The sound gets quieter when an item drops further away which is the exact opposite of what you want.

  • +3 Fire Staff Crafting

Shaper Orbs
Bold maps are my personal favorites. The other maps are good alternatives. My preferred maps are listed in order from left to right.

To Unshape a map use Unshaping Orbs.
20x Cartographer's Chisels
5x Orbs of Regret

  • T1 | Beach, Graveyard
  • T2 | Arid Lake, Alleyways, Pen (The Chains that Bind)
  • T3 | Burial Chambers (The Doctor), Port, Peninsula, Leyline, Springs
  • T4 | Volcano (The King's Heart, Pride Before the Fall), Gorge, Canyon, Strand
  • T5 | Toxic Sewer, Haunted Mansion, Channel, Ivory Temple
  • T6 | Fields, Atoll, Jungle Valley, Phantasmagoria
  • T7 | Dunes, Arachnid Nest, Ramparts
  • T8 (2) | Tropical Island, Shore, Courtyard, Infested Valley
  • T9 (3) | Vault, Estuary, Waste Pool, Scriptorium, Plateau
  • T10 (3) | Arachnid Tomb (Spider Forest, The Doctor), Siege, Bog, Belfry
  • Elder | Haunted Mansion, Toxic Sewer, Channel, Underground Sea

Sustaining Maps
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. Don't do this on Shaped maps because they will downwgrade instead of upgrade. 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 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 does not increase map drops.
Atlas Optimization
NOTE: The strategy below is only for racing and currency farming! Do not follow this strategy if your goal is to complete the league challenges or just have fun.

Maps only drop if you have unlocked them on the atlas or are running a map connected to that map. Don't unlock every map unless you enjoy running bad maps or spending multiple exalts undoing your atlas completion. You unlock a map when the boss is killed, so skip some bosses and trade/upgrade maps or you will regret it.

Unlock all white and yellow maps. Unlock some red maps to get Shaper's Orbs and then remove non-Shaped red maps when you have one Shaped red map of each tier. You only want shaped red maps because they will not drop maps that you haven't unlocked. You can also skip shaping a red map of a specific tier in order to get lower tier maps. This can be helpful for farming specific maps for Divination cards. In previous leagues I did this for Headhunter cards and Strand/Mesa maps.

To remove a map from the atlas use Cartographer's Seals.
3x Cartographer's Sextant
1x Orb of Scouring
NOTE: You can combine 3 sextants to make one of the next tier.
Unlimited Elder Maps
Elder must be connected to his Guardians. Once the Elder Guardians spawn you need to kill the ones connected to the Elder. Now you can complete maps connected to both the Elder and his remaining Guardians without losing influence.

You can also create a C-shaped path of 30 Elder influenced maps called an "Elder Ring" to have more Elder maps. You do this by placing Elder at one end of the C and an Elder Guardian at the other end. I recommend using this website (top right button) to figure out a stable Elder Ring setup.
Currency Conversions
NPC Conversions (usually better than poe.trade)
▻ Whetstones/Transmutes/Armourer's Scraps ➞ Scrolls of Wisdom
▻ Jewellers ➞ Fusings (Vorici)
▻ Chances ➞ Scourings (Catarina)
▻ Bulk quality items ➞ Gemcutter's, Baubles
▻ 6 links (corrupted) ➞ Divines

NPC Conversions (worse than poe.trade, but useful for SSF)
▻ 3 Sextants ➞ upgraded Sextant
▻ Alterations ➞ Jewellers (Elreon)
▻ Scourings ➞ Regrets
▻ Augments ➞ Alts (Haku)
▻ Regrets ➞ Alchs (Vagan)
▻ 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.
▻ You can store Shaper's Orbs in your crafting benches instead of using them.
▻ You can abandon a master's daily quest without completing it in order to reset their inventory.
▻ You can move stash tabs quickly by pulling it to the edge and then holding the arrow key.
▻ Don't use Vaal Orbs on Shaped maps. This will downgrade the map tier instead of upgrade.
▻ Only the first person to throw Bestiary net will capture a beast boss or their red portal beasts.

New Player Tips
▻ Join global 820 to share master dailies and league Challenges.
▻ Join trade 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.
