A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

Modifiers

This item has the modifier #% of Elemental Damage taken as Chaos Damage which allows elemental damage to be taken as chaos damage. The following two tables can help gauge the effectiveness of this body armour.

Calculations of the efficiency

Assuming the player allocates the Chaos Inoculation keystone, the "value" of this effect is as follows for various maximum elemental resistance breakpoints. (The "Damage Taken" is an arbitrary amount corresponding to a large elemental hit for the purposes of calculation and percentages are rounded up or down to conform to the way the game displays resistances (whole numbers)).

For characters with less than 75% Chaos Resistance, Incandescent Heart acts as an elemental damage taken multiplier, increasing the total amount of elemental damage taken as illustrated in the following table:
