Of all of the addons and supporting elements you will need in Path of Exile, the loot filter is one of the most important. For the uninformed, a loot filter is just a UI addon that filters out junk loot. You can use it to highlight various rare and important drops, making it much easier to sort through all the junk you will get buried under.
If you’re not using a loot filter in this game, you’re really missing out. Being able to look at a glance and parse through the mountain of gear and items that will drop. And with the new Seeds added in this league, you will want to be able to spot them at a glance. More complex filters can even play sounds and display minimap icons for these kinds of drops, making them very easy to find.
This game isn’t developed by a company called Grinding Gear Games for no reason. You will need to be using this system to help deal with all of the drops.
If you want to use our filter, get ISKMogul’s POE 3.11 Filter! It’s based on the Semi-strict Crimson Neversink filter with some alterations that make looting a bit easier to parse. We also added a theme we felt fit with the earthen tones of the league.
Move that file into the following folder: %userprofile%/Documents/My Games/Path of Exile
Now go into UI under Options and enable the filter there. You should see an in-game message that it loaded successfully.

There are many different filters to use, and you can also customize any filter to your liking.
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. THe casual player can stick with a basic setting and be fine without customization.
NOTE: FilterBlade will likely be getting hit with a lot of traffic on patch day on the 19th. Get your filter ready now, so you don’t have to wait around in a queue while the server handles the load of exporting thousands of filters.
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 a more veteran POE player, crafting your own filter is an option. It’s a good idea to spend the time making a filter that works for you. If you have played previous leagues you will likely have a base of experience to work from, take advantage of that.
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 a similar great choice for the veteran player in POE 3.11. The volume of items alone that you have to check through it pretty dense, so newer players will likely want to stick with a premade filter.
