Reforging with Orb of Fusing


Path of Exile's arguably most unique addition to the hack-n-slash genre were the concepts of skill (and support) gems and linking. Skill gems effectively give you an unparallelled amount of choice regarding your character's active abilities, since you can use any ability in the game if you put its skill gem in a socket in your gear. Support gems give additional effects to these skills, for example, more elemental damage, life or mana steal, critical chance, area of effect damage, and so on.

How linking affects all this is as follows: The more sockets are linked in your gear, the more support gems you can link to your active skill gem, thus making your active skills (therefore your character itself) exponentially more powerful. The most common method of achieving the most links possible is by using Jeweller's Orb repeatedly on an item to achieve the maximum number of sockets, Chromatic Orb to get the correct colors and finally, Orb of Fusing.

Orb of Fusing lets you reforge the links between the sockets of a given item, which is practically the only way of getting a highly coveted (and rightly so!) 6-linked items. (That is, if you don't count Tabula Rasa, which is a unique armor that is 6-linked by nature, but offers no stats whatsoever, making it a strictly cheaper and worse alternative to 6-linked rares and other uniques.) The number of possible sockets on an item are determined by its item type and item level.

That shouldn't discourage anyone though, our Path of Exile store is well-suited and well-prepared to meet anyone's PoE needs, be it a good base item for your 6-linked dream, Jeweller's Orb, Orb of Fusing, or if you prefer to take the easy way out, you can find already 6-linked uniques in our selection as well.
