Grinding Gear Games decided that they weren’t going to go about trading in Path of Exile the same way as others have. Where most games have a sort of market board to go along with their trading, Path of Exile requires two players to be in the same area in order to trade. There is no sort of auction system where players can put up their items for other players to view at any time. Along with this, there isn’t a singular currency that is used while trading.

This promotes a ‘barter system’ that forces the players to trade their goods for other goods or items of equal value. When you and another player have met up and want to trade, right click on their character and select the ‘trade’ option. It should be mentioned that if you or the other player you are trading with does not have a character on their account at level 25, that player will not be able to trade currency or unique items.

How to Trade Unique Items/Currency Under Level 25 in Path of Exile

Players who are wanting to trade certain items but haven’t reached level 25 on any character might run into some issues. As mentioned above, you aren’t able to officially trade currency or unique items to other players if you aren’t level 25, or vise versa. Bypassing this won’t actually require a lot from either of the players participating in the trade. By visiting a zone area in Path of Exile, you are able to drop any of the aforementioned items/currency for any player regardless of their levels. With all of that out of the way, it’s time for you to hop back in to Wraeclast, and start finding people to trade some goodies with. Thank you for reading and good luck!
