[3.0] 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.

HOW TO INSTALL: Instructional Guide

You can download and test out the latest filters from your web browser using FilterBlast. Select the filter categories from the top menu. Hover over items to see their details and click on them to hear their drop sounds. Use the ALT button on the top right to toggle hidden items.

Old Screenshots
The screenshots are slightly oudated. Check FilterBlast for changes.

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, 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.

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 Crystal Belts.

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 shown cards.
Very Strict Hides common divination cards that are worth <0.25c. Plays a sound for cards worth 1c+.

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.

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 Hides magic jewels in T6+ maps. Plays a sound for rare jewels.
Strict Hides magic jewels in maps. Plays a sound for rare jewels while leveling, but not in maps.
Very Strict Hides magic jewels in maps. Hides rare jewels in T6+ maps. Plays a sound for shown rare jewels.

Normal Hides T1-6 maps progressively. Plays a sound for T1-7 maps progressively.
Strict Hides T1-6 maps progressively. Plays a sound for T1-8 maps progressively.
Very Strict Hides T1-9 maps progressively. Hides T1-10 maps with bad layouts. Plays a sound for T1-9 maps progressively.

5 Links, 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).

Custom Colors
You can customize the colors by modifying the color theme in FilterBlast, testing it by hitting refresh, saving the result as a new filter, loading it into Filtration and then creating a master theme. It's possible to edit themes using Filtration but it's MUCH harder to do.

Default: https://pastebin.com/TSFSZdry
Neversink: https://pastebin.com/KTk1iiBJ
Greengroove: https://pastebin.com/ettTnViS

All themes can be viewed and installed using FilterBlast or Filtration. If you want to share a color theme then I will consider hosting it for you and updating it over time.

▻ Fixed a minor Divination Card bug: The Wolf vs The Wolf's Shadow

▻ Changed the border of 72+ armor and 73+ weapons to be toggled instead of always on. You can now enable it to highlight specific item classes that you're looking for. This should help solo self-found players a lot. I'm personally using this to search for one-handed axes. The feature has been implemented in the strict filters as well.
▻ 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.

▻ Added a slight border to Perandus Coins and Wailing/Weeping Essences.
▻ Added block switches to the pre-filter (first pass on equipment).
▻ Added New Uniques to the filter. Speaker's Wreath and Ahn's Might are bad. These are currently listed as 2-10c, so this may be reduced later. Tinkerskin and Soul Tether are potentially useful so they're listed at 1-2c.

▻ Added some more one-handers to the valuable list since Sunder seems like it will be somewhat popular.
▻ Added more semi-valuable rares to the Strict Filter but not the Very Strict.

▻ Removed most of the useless 83+ crafting bases. You have to hold ALT to see most of these.

▻ Changed grey border to blue for 3-4L items.
▻ Added all 56+ DropLevel bases to rare weapons. This is to simplify the filter and reduce errors.
▻ Added some low drop level 5L bows to the strict filters. Low level bows are used by casters for SRS and Decay since they're easier color.
▻ Minor optimizations and comment updates.

▻ Massive overhaul of the filter.
▻ Rares and Crafting bases have undergone major changes. The border and background colors have been modified.
▻ Optimized the filter to run 2x as fast on equipment but ~25% slower on Uniques, Divination Cards, and Maps. This significantly reduces the load times with FilterBlast and should be better in game as well.

▻ Reduced the border brightness of quality chisels and non-utility flasks.
▻ Removed 3-4 link ilvl 20+ white/blue weapons.

▻ Fixed errors related to the previous release.

▻ Changed T16 maps (Guardians) to red with grey text/border.
▻ Added a slight green background to quest/labyrinth items.
▻ Updated some comments.

▻ More tweaks to rare 60+/83+ one-handers.

▻ Removed the border around ilvl 83+ rare one-handers except top-tier wands/daggers.
▻ Removed claws and most swords from the ilvl 77+ top tier bases. Wands/daggers are still the best bases for profit since they're mostly used by casters and uniques don't compete enough with rares. Claws have too much competition with uniques so they're not worth IDing. Swords don't have as much competition but they're incredibly hard to roll well and aren't as widely used, so I left only Jewelled Foils and Corsair Swords.

▻ Reduced the number of shown ilvl 60-70 daggers/wands again.
▻ Reduced the size of 60+ top tier one-handers.
▻ Increased the size of 77+ top tier one-handers+. I don't do this to most two-handers because it's better to craft them from a 5-6L base. I left out one-handed maces/axes since most people use uniques instead of crafting those bases.
▻ Reduced the size of 75+ and 83+ top tier weapons (Harbinger, Daggers, Wands, etc).
▻ Added a few more top tier one-handers to the list (Foils, Claws, etc).

▻ Reduced the number of shown ilvl 60+ rare shields, wands, and daggers from the normal filter. Greatly reduced the shown ilvl 70+ of these. Physical daggers got demolished this patch in favor of claws.

▻ Added Marble Amulet to the expensive crafting jewelry bases (and the strict filters). Righteous Fire has become popular.
▻ Removed Two-Toned boots from the strict filters. I've seen them way too much and they're worthless since Labyrinth enchants are better and will overwrite the implicit.
▻ Reduced the sound of low value ilvl <67 uniques in the Very Strict filter.

▻ Added more uniques to useful list: Auric Mace, Carnal Armour, Ezomyte Blade, Hellion's Paw, Ironscale Boots, Spidersilk Robe, Strapped Leather, Sulphur Flask, Wild Leather.

▻ Added sound for low level jewels to the strict filter.
▻ Reduced the size of most 83+ ilvl rares. The top tier bases are still very large. I used to make armor larger than weapons but I gave them different text color instead.

▻ Removed most quiver bases from the filter and reduced the size of the remaining ones. I should have done this a long time ago. They're not valuable and most people use the uniques anyway.

▻ Standardized the light grey colors.
▻ Removed transparency from borders.
▻ Added a background color to unique jewels to match other uniques.
▻ Added Item Quantity to valuable gems list. It doesn't drop anymore, but I figured I should add it just in case (legacy relic).
▻ Added sound back to 6S 5L in the very strict filter. I missed this earlier.
▻ Added a grey background to 4L low level items.
▻ Reduced the border color of most ilvl 83+ rares and increased it for top tier rares. These were too bright and looked more valuable than they are.
▻ Attempted to filter Relics (Legacy Uniques). They cannot be hidden in the filter and are being detected as Uniques instead of Relics. I decided not to add special rules to the filter for these items.

▻ Added sound back to 6 socket items in the very strict filter.
▻ Reduced border color brightness of low value uniques. They're not valuable and bright border made me always want to pick them up.

▻ Added sound to Glimmer of Hope divination card (special case).
▻ Gems have been modified slightly.
▻ Some drop-only Vaal gems have been removed from the strict filters.
▻ Valuable gems now have slightly lighter text.

▻ Uniques have been reordered from most expensive to least just like Divination Cards for the same exact reason. This is to preempt future bugs and prevent valuable items from being hidden.

▻ Divination Cards have been partially updated. They have been organized alphabetically. Other changes are listed below.
(10c+) The Celestial Justicar, The Vast, Pride Before the Fall
(1c+) The Standoff, The Chains that Bind, The Avenger, Merciless Armament
▻ A major bug related to Divination Cards has been fixed. A couple cards were being hidden or mislabeled due to name conflicts. The cards have been ordered from most expensive first to ensure that they'll never be hidden again. (Hope, Glimmer of Hope, Last Hope) (The Dragon, The Dragon's Heart)
▻ NOTE: Some cards are worth a small amount in hardcore but I'm not going to add them to the strict filters because they're not worth enough (The Twins, Grave Knowledge, Might is Right, etc).

▻ Added a yellow border to top tier ilvl 75-84 bases (Fingerless Silk Gloves, Bone Helmet, Hubris Circlet, Vaal Regalia, etc).
▻ Reduced the size of top tier ilvl 75-84 daggers/wands from 40 to 36.
▻ Removed worthless Drop-Only gems from the Very Strict filter (Vaal Summon Skeletons, Vaal Glacial Hammer, Added Chaos Damage, etc).
▻ Increased the volume of unique jewels.

▻ Complete overhaul of the uniques section. Many uniques are now hidden or have less/no sound.

▻ Added sound back to the Very Strict filter for ~1c currency.
▻ Added T4 maps back to T8+ maps. T1-3 are still hidden.
▻ Minor fixes.

▻ Added a Very Strict filter. This filter includes FAR less sounds and a little less loot than the Strict Filter. It only shows low tier maps with good layouts. Eventually it will also hide worthless uniques.
▻ Removed T1-4 maps while in T8+ maps.
▻ Added 72+ Titanium Spirit Shields to the Strict filters.
▻ Removed the white border around ilvl 1-67 Leaguestones. This helps differentiate the ones that have a zone level requirement.

▻ Changed the background color of most 5 links to grey.
▻ Added a white background to 5L 6S items.
▻ Ancient Reliquary Key text has been changed to dark green. Black was too similar to T16 maps.
▻ Slightly reduced background color for worthless/new value uniques.

▻ Changed uniques prices: Gold Amulet, Prophet Crown, Cedar Tower Shield, etc.
▻ Ancient Reliquary Key text has been changed to black.

▻ Lots of changes to currency.
▻ Perandus Coins been reduced in size and tier. This is to prevent them from overflowing past the screen.
▻ Silver Coins have gone down a tier. They're still easy to see but now they don't make sound.
▻ Jewellers have gone down a tier in the Strict Filter.
▻ Added a white background to currency worth 3-6c. Remnents of Corruption, Master Sextants, etc.
▻ Ancient Reliquary Key has been given a white background and a gong sound.
▻ Added a white background to 5%+ quality Portal, Empower, Enlighten.
▻ Leaguestones have had their border's brightness lowered.

▻ Added divination cards: The Devastator, The Conduit

▻ Removed low drop level (< 45) daggers/wands from maps in the normal filter.
▻ Added rare Jewelled Foil and Spiraled Foil to normal filter. These were shown a long time ago but were lost through updates.
▻ Minor update to the uniques list and added more 2.6 uniques (Stealth Boots, Wyrmscale Doublet, Imperial Maul).

▻ Added the white border to all Leaguestones. You can combine leaguestones so you might as well pick them all up.
▻ Added Divination Card: The Spoiled Prince
▻ Added Currency: Stacked Deck, Unshaping Orb, Cartographer's Seals
▻ Imprint (Eternal Orb result) has been left as an error intentionally since they pretty much don't exist anymore.

▻ Removed the chance bases from Strict Filter.
▻ Reduced size and removed background color for Breach Rings. This makes them slightly easier to ignore since they're worthless.
▻ Removed Breach Rings from maps in Strict Filter (68+).
▻ Made certain currencies and essences more verbose in case they overlap with future currency (e.g. Sextant -> Cartographer's Sextant).
▻ Made top tier weapon bases more consistent: Harbinger Bow, Platinum Kris, Imperial Skean, Ambusher, Imbued Wand, Tornado Wand.
▻ Removed rare Astral Plates from the Strict filter. They're not valuable.
▻ Added 84+ Vaal Regalias to the Strict filter. For some reason I was only showing 75-83.
▻ Cleaned up some code and fixed a harmless error (duplicate code).

▻ Added divination card Scarred Meadow. Accidentally removed this at some point.
▻ Removed magic jewels from all maps (ilvl 68+) in strict filter.
▻ Removed magic jewels from yellow/red maps in normal filter. The new vivid jewel divination cards kind of ruin the point of these (Shard of Fate, The Endurance).
▻ Added droplevel 41+ gloves/boots/helmets to normal filter. Previously this was droplevel 50+. I was having a hard time completing Chaos/Regal recipes fast enough.

▻ Fixed a typo that broke the strict filter.
▻ Added a new tier of Divination cards. Worthless has been split into a "Nearly Worthless" and "Worthless" categories. No cards were hidden in the normal filter but now the really bad ones are.

▻ Reduced opacity of worthless divination cards more.

▻ Added Filtration support. You can now tweak the filter using Filtration and FilterBLAST.
▻ Added a bunch of SmartBlocks so that users can enable/disable certain filter features. However, this might result in some weird behavior so I recommend only modifying colors/sizes.
▻ Reduced the size of error items from 45 to 40. It's more likely that error items are worthless and if they're too big then they'll be extremely distracting.

▻ Modified opacity of Divination cards so that different values can be more easily distinguished.
▻ Changed the level ranges for certain items in both filters.

▻ Fixed the Crafting Bases and 83+ Rares sections. Saintly Chainmail was being detected as Sai. You can actually see this in the screenshots.

▻ Increased accuracy of colors for certain hidden items.
▻ Fixed some of the chance/crafting bases. Ilvl 83+ Wands/daggers/harbingers were popping up everywhere so I made them hidden again in the normal filter. If you want to find these crafting bases then you should tap ALT once in a while to look for them.
▻ Reduced the size of some gems.

▻ Huge update to the filter. I have fixed most of the bugs resulting from this but there may be more.
▻ Price updates for Divination Cards and Uniques based on poe.ninja.
▻ Added Breach Blessings and Breachstones to filter. They were already shown but now they're more visible.

▻ Removed the border of rares under ilvl 83/84.
▻ Removed non-quality Vaal Reave from gem sounds.
▻ Removed non-quality Detonate Mines and Enhance from the Strict Filter.

▻ Errors will be highlighted with a Green border. This includes new Divination Cards.
▻ Standardized the order of the filter (TextColor > BorderColor > BackgroundColor > etc).

▻ Worthless Divination cards are now hidden in the Strict Filter.
▻ Magic/blue jewels are now hidden in the Strict Filter.
▻ Blacksmith Whetstones have been moved down in currency tier. Glassblower Baubles have been moved up in the Strict Filter.


▻ Added Citadel Bow (Xoph's Inception) to unique list.
▻ Added Corrupted essences to list: Delirium, Hysteria, Horror, Insanity.
▻ Enlarged the 2.4 boots/gloves/helmets to largest size.
▻ Added the 2.4 boots/gloves/helmets to 84+ crafting bases.
▻ Reduced the size of chisel recipe (gavels/etc).
▻ Swapped Enlighten/Enhance in the gems list. I meant to put Enhance in the worthless gem drops.

▻ Added 83+ items back to solo filter. Accidentally removed these.
▻ Added grey background to top tier blue 83+ bases again.

▻ Standardized font sizes to what I had in the header. (24, 32, 36, 40, 45)
There were too many pointless font sizes.
▻ Added Crystal Belt to crafting bases.
▻ All 83+ crafting base blues/whites are now hidden. They can be seen while holding ALT, and are still larger and easily distinguished.
▻ Reduced the size of most T1 rares. Astral Plate, Vaal Regalia, Harbinger Bow are still large.
▻ Enlarged the new 2.4 boots/gloves/helmets. (Two-Toned Boots, Spiked/Gripped/Fingerless Gloves, Bone Helmet)
▻ Minor fixes to Divination/Unique prices.

▻ T6 Maps are now yellow.
▻ Enlighten is now part of the worthless drop only gems like Detonate Mines.
▻ Added the valuable Essence uniques to the filter (22 total). Uniques that are Shaper only that share a common worthless unique are not highlighted. Always check the value of your uniques.

▻ Added a border for T3+ essences to distinguish them from lower tiers.
▻ Changed Labyrinth items to be green text.
▻ Minor changes such as text sizes.

▻ Fixed T1 maps so they aren't labeled as errors (green). Maps can now drop in level 59+? zones. This was 68+ in patch 2.3. There may be errors in future because of this change, sadly.

▻ Removed white leather belts (Headhunter) from the chance bases section.

▻ Overhauled the map section to use DropLevel instead of names of maps reducing the code substantially. Colors for shaped maps may be changed in the future.

▻ Made Fishing Poles and Rhoa Feathers more opaque.

▻ Organized white/blue and crafting sections so that they don't interfere with each other.

  • 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

  • +3 Bow Crafting
    Start with an ilvl 64+ 6L bow (Crude Bow or Short Bow recommended), roll reduced requirements using Alterations, chrome it until you get the right colors, roll +2 bows, then follow the directions in the link.
  • +3 Fire Staff Crafting
    Start with an ilvl 55+ 5-6L +1 gems or +2 fire staff, then follow the directions in the link.

Shaper Orbs
You get a Shaper's Orb when you complete the bonus objective of a map. The locations for Shaper's Orb are listed here. 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 | Jungle Valley
  • T2 | Beach, Oasis
  • T3 | Arid Lake, Channel
  • T4 | Phantasmagoria, Graveyard
  • T5 | Dunes, Mesa
  • T6 | Spider Forest (The Doctor), Racecourse, Canyon, Strand
  • T7 | Mud Geyser, Arachnid Tomb, Ashen Wood
  • T8 (2) | Bog, Atoll, Tropical Island, Shore
  • T9 (3) | Reef, Orchard (combine for Abyss), Coves, Promenade
  • T10 (3) | Courtyard, Colonnade, Underground River, Port
Atlas Optimization
Don't unlock every map unless you enjoy having a stash full of bad maps. For reference, I've spent over 5ex undoing my atlas completion. You unlock a map when the boss is killed, so skip some bosses and trade/upgrade maps or you will regret it.

I only unlock Shaped T11-14 maps and only one map from each tier. This ensures that I only get my favorite Shaped red maps back. Gorge may be a good map but it drops Torture Chambers and other red maps connected to it, which is not worth it. You can also skip shaping a specific tier in order to get lower tier maps, but this hurts my overall map pool. For example, I used to skip shaping a T12 to get more T11 maps since T12 maps would become T11 maps as a result. I did this to get more Shaped Strands but the mob density of the map has been nerfed. You can instead do this for Spider Forest if you are hunting for The Doctor cards.

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.

Maps To Unlock:
T11 | Shaped Spider Forest (The Doctor), Shaped Racecourse, Shaped Canyon, Shaped Strand
T12 | Shaped Mud Geyser, Shaped Arachnid Tomb, Shaped Ashen Wood, Vault
T13 | Shaped Bog, Shaped Atoll, Shaped Tropical Island, Shaped Shore
T14 | Shaped Reef, Shaped Orchard (combine for Abyss), Shaped Coves, Shaped Promenade
T15 | Abyss, Shaped Courtyard, Shaped Colonnade, Shaped Underground River, Shaped Port
T16 | All

Sustaining a Map Pool:
Use Alchemy Orbs on T6+ maps. Roll pack size and/or more magic monsters on red maps. Use chisels on red maps worth 3c+. Use Vaal Orbs on twinned maps and maps with multiple bosses. Vaaled maps can drop Sacrifice fragments and can roll 8mod and unid which drop even more items. Use Sextants, Sacrifice Fragments, and Zana mods sparingly. They're best used in groups where members are sharing the map cost.

Pro Tips
▻ You can disable skills like Blood Rage by weapon swapping as long as the gem is in your weapon.
▻ 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.
▻ 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 quickly drag stash tabs by pulling it to the edge and then holding the arrow key.

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.

awesome thanks for filter, but i want to add red-green-blue linked items for chroma orb is there any solution for it ?

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.
