Path of Exile (PoE) is an action RPG game with lots of grinding and with that, comes lots of gears and loots. Loots is a crucial part of an RPG game and it’s important to filter them wisely.
In this guide, we’ll explore how you can install them in Path of Exile (PoE). But, before getting into the installation guide, first, let’s understand what are the loot filters and what are their uses in the game.
What are the Loot Filters and Their Uses?
In PoE, loots are important for endgame and character development. But only a portion of loots is worth taking as many of them are not as useful. Also, looking out for the best loots and filtering the loots by yourself can be time-consuming and distracting. In PoE, the more loot you carry, the slower you will become. In PoE where speed matters a lot, you cannot afford to be slow.
This is where the loot filters come in. Loot filters will help you to get the best out of the game. Using a loot filter, you can identify which loots are important and useful. You can customize the UI or text for more useful items using a loot filter. This will help you distinguish between the loots and you can pick only the loots that you need.
Using some loot filters allows you to customize sound when a useful loot drops. Although the game has already an in-built item filter, it does not filter every unnecessary loot. As you go further into the game, loots will be abundant and can be very difficult to sort out.

Here’s a list of all the best PoE Loot filters that in our perception:
Filter 1: NeverSink’s Loot Filter
Neversink helps distinguish between the loots using different text sizes, colors, and labels.
The colors and labels are easy to memorize and will catch your eye while playing the game. It also has sound customizations. So, when a great loot like Chaos Orb drops, you can tell by hearing the sound.
