Consider helping out in updating the wiki for 3.8.0 - see Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/3.8.0.

Game data updates to the wiki have been started.


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.

Skill Functions and Interactions

  • The "Life Recovery from Flasks also Applies to Energy Shield" effect is limited, as a non-instant life flask can't currently be used while at full life. "Seething"-prefix life flasks can be used to instantly recover small amounts of Energy Shield, however.
  • The Timeless Jewel-enabled Corrupted Soul keystone spreads damage between Life and Energy Shield, which can maximize the effectiveness of this flask.
  • If The Sorrow of the Divine is used in conjunction with Blood of the Karui and the character stays below full life until the Blood of the Karui flask duration ends, the character will recover their maximum life total as Energy Shield (not their maximum Energy Shield).
  • Indigon's "Non-instant Mana recovery from Flasks is also recovered as Life" effect does NOT interact with this item to recover Energy Shield.
  • A hybrid Life / Energy Shield character, such as one using Geofri's Sanctuary, can exploit The Sorrow of the Divine in conjunction with Forbidden Taste. For example, if a character has 3000 Life, 12000 Energy Shield, and two Forbidden Taste with perfect rolls, they could use each flask twice, gaining 3000 Life instantly as Energy Shield four times within the effect of The Sorrow of the Divine to bring their Energy Shield from 0 to 12000. This is one of the few ways in the game to instantly restore such a large amount of Energy Shield.
