Loot Filters are one of the most important addons when playing Path of Exile, bar none. Path of Exile buries the player in a mountain of loot at all times during play. Figuring out the new league mechanics in Path of Exile 3.10 will be hard enough, so why complicate things? The sheer volume of base types and modifiers is mind-boggling for many a new player. So learning the ropes of what is worth picking up takes time, and a loot filter helps with that by sorting out the trash from the treasure and even color-coding it.
Having the right loot filter, and having one that’s customized for your liking, is vital to enjoying POE. You do not want to be stuck spending hours identifying and sorting junk loot, so automate the process with a good filter. So here’s our guide on some of the best loot filters to use in Path of Exile 3.10 and the Delirium Challenge League.

There are literally dozens of different loot filters out there, and you can even make your own. The best way to handle this process of updating your filter for all the new items and changes is to use a pre-made one, although you can also customize your own from a variety of bases.
Neversink’s Loot Filter – The most common loot filter for many POE players. Neversink offers a wide array of options for the strictness of the filter, with more speed-oriented players wanting to opt for a stricter filter.
NOTE: FilterBlade appears to be somewhat overloaded due to all the API calls, use the Download File option under the Download tab, instead of trying to sync a new loot filter with your POE profile.
Greengrove’s Loot Filter – A very stylish loot filter, with several cosmetic options It has multiple color schemes like Amethyst, Atlantisite, Bloodstone, Jade, Zoisite and Game Like, each offering their own unique look. Filtering for items is more generic, showing a wide range of items.
StupidFatHobbit’s Loot Filter – Experienced players, racers and the like might want to look here. This heavily restricted filter is designed to filter out most trash and other loot, only showing the most valuable drops and currency.
If you’re going to use any loot filter beyond the default, and you’ve played POE before, you probably have some things that you like to keep constant. The color of text and borders for certain currency for example. Customizing a loot filter is hard work though, so if you want to go that route, several tools are made by the POE community to assist in the process. We strongly recommend FilterBlade for handling creating your own filter, it uses Neversink as a base and offers an insane degree of choice and customization. FilterBlast is another great choice as it has more options as bases. However, it is a bit harder to use for some people.
Developer Neversink has also been teasing some new features with this version of FilterBlade. With the additions of new filtering criteria and expanded API support in the last patch, things were already pretty great. It looks like POE 3.10 will be even better for loot filters though.
