In Path of Exile, do you felt like this flashback event would be a great time to try ssf for the first time? As an experienced player already play ssf, I have some tips and goals for starting out:
1. Don’t hesitate to use more strict filters after a day or two.
The chance to find upgrades on rare slots dimishes really fast and the time picking up all the mediocre bases is better spent farming more. Especially if you eventually want to wear specific uniques or elder/shaper bases in most slots.
2. Make sure you know how to approach your atlas.
Do you want to run purely shaped maps? If so, you might want to use the 3:1 vendor on your shaped maps to aquire the next Shaper’s Orb etc until you have all that you need and then set up an elder ring with the most important ones, doing one on the left side of the atlas is comparably easy and fast, including stuff like underground sea, armoury, toxic sewers etc. and more then pays off in the long run.
3. Don’t hesitate to reroll if you find some strong build enabling items.
Releveling doesn’t take too long and some builds can more then make up for the time spent if you get decent gear for them.
4. Use your poe currency purchase, but use it wisely.
You don’t want to use all your alts, chaos etc all the time but on the bases that you really need upgrades on right now or at a specific point. E.g. if you know that you will need a high pDPS 1hand or a CoH shaper ring at some point then keep things like alts for those. Same goes for essences.
