Spending

Regal Orbs do two things when used on an item: they add an additional affix, and they convert a magic item into a rare item. Regal Orbs can only be used on magic items.

The adding an affix is useful for improving Maps or Strongboxes, where additional affixes can yield additional results.

Converting a magic item to a rare is important for crafting in that a rare item has space for six affixes (three prefixes and three suffixes) while a magic item only has space for two affixes (one prefix and one suffix).

In crafting, using a Regal Orb is a middle step when crafting a magic item with good affix(s) into a rare. If the affix added by the Regal Orb is desired, one can continue adding up to a total of six affixes through master crafting (using the Can have multiple crafted mods suffix) or the use of Exalted OrbsExalted OrbStack Size: 10Enchants a rare item with a new random modifierRight click this item then left click a rare item to apply it.

can be used to randomly remove an affix (hopefully the undesirable one).

Lastly, Regal Orbs can be used to purchase certain skill gems from vendors.
