Too many items filling up your screen? Grab yourself a Path of Exile Loot Filter 3.7 Legion League edition.
Update for Path of Exile Blight: I have checked out all Loot Filters in this guide, they have all been updated and work perfectly for 3.8 with the exception of Crymsius’s Loot Filter!
Path of Exile features a rich and diverse collection of items, which is one of the many reasons why the game is so customizable and unique. The Hack and Slash RPG showcases large packs of monsters that drop items in Normal, Magic, Rare and Unique rarities. Most of the items dropped from monsters are useless clutter, that’s why we highly recommend using a Loot Filter.

It is vital to use Loot Filters while playing PoE because of the large majority of useless items that drop from the increasing pack size of monsters. The goal is to be flexible to each player, whether you need to obtain certain types of gear or need a filter designed purely for racing/softcore/hardcore. You may even need an exclusively designed Loot Filter for a certain class or weapon type. The essential reason you require a good PoE filter is to eliminate all the personally useless items from your screen and concentrate on what is valuable to you. Let’s break down what a loot filter is and how to install one.

WHAT IS A PATH OF EXILE LOOT FILTER?
Filters enable you to customize the display of loot labels, text size, text color, and even the effect of dropping sounds. Filters will also allow you, as the name indicates, to totally conceal the loot labels you are not interested in. This makes your game clutter free and far easier to determine good loot. Holding down (default) Alt key will still show you all loot that has dropped.
With so much loot dropping in Path of Exile the addition of loot filters can make sorting through loot drops much faster by only showing you the relevant drops. The drawback to using a custom filter is that it can be time-consuming finding one that accommodates you. PoE exhibits so much diversity that each player’s needs can differ massively from the next. Further on you’ll find our picks for the best Path of Exile Loot Filters Legion expansion.
HOW TO INSTALL A LOOT FILTER IN POE?
The first step to installing a Loot Filter it to essentially find one that matches your needs. Once you’ve found the appropriate filter for you, it may come in a variety of formats. Some loot filters will come in text form, which you’ll have to copy the text and create the filter file yourself. Others will be a single download with the filter file created for you. Here’s how you can install PoE Loot Filters in both formats.
These loot filters typically come from websites like Pastebin and require you to create the filter file manually. To do so follow these simple steps:
- Highlight and copy the complete text of the loot filter.
- Navigate to Documents/My Games/Path of Exile.
- Right-click and select New>Text Document.
- Name the text file anything you would like, however, the extension must be .filter not .txt.
- Open the filter with notepad or another text editing software and copy the complete loot filter text.
- Open Path of Exile options in-game and navigate to the UI tab. Scroll to the bottom until you see List of Item Filters.
- Select your new filter and save.
Some filters will not require you to create anything, and all of the hard work is already done. All that’s required is to download and place the filter into your Path of Exile folder.
- Download Loot Filter.
- Copy Loot Filter to your Documents/My Games/Path of Exile Folder.
- Open Path of Exile options in-game and navigate to the UI tab. Scroll to the bottom until you see “List of Item Filters.”
- Select your new filter and save.
Note: If you can’t find the correct PoE folder to place your loot filter, navigate to Path of Exile Settings in-game and select the UI tab. Scroll down to the bottom and click the “show folder” button.
BEST PATH OF EXILE LEGION 3.7 LOOT FILTERS
Neversink’s Loot Filter
The most frequently used PoE filter remains to be Neversink’s. It is highly versatile and provides powerful visuals to differentiate generic loot from excellent loot. Designed to be as flexible as possible, Neversink provides presets from Soft to Uber-Strict that players can choose from. Naturally, more items with a lower value will be shown in the soft filter setting, which is perfect for fresh players or characters of low level who still need to farm equipment. Uber-Strict is on the other end of the spectrum, filtering out all the low-value items, this is advised to be used in end game scenarios.
You can customize the PoE Legion 3.7 Loot Filter through the FilterBlade Website.
Greengroove’s Loot Filter
My personal favorite filter, Greengroove’s comes with a choice of five distinctive options–Leveling, Caster, Endgame, Racing, and Magic Find. The filter from Greengroove leans towards the more efficient user, with modified choices accessible via Filterblast. Surprisingly, for all drops that matter, this loot filter comes with unique audio signals. Coming with five distinct styles presets, the PoE Loot Filter from Greengroove is ideal for all phases of the game.
StupidFatHobbit’s Loot Filter
RaizQT endorsed, the loot filter of StupidFatHobbit was intended mainly for races, but can also be adapted for hardcore mapping and end game content. The primary attraction of this filter is the different stages the Loot Filter goes through automatically as you race. Automatically switching as you pass through leveling, mapping, and endgame. The beauty with this race-inspired loot filter is that you can use it from level 1-100 without any modifications along the way.
EpicFail42’s Loot Filter
Dubbed “simple and readable” Epic’s loot filter keeps things traditional. No fancy neon colors plagued across your screen. Everything is left as close to the default colors of Path of Exile, which important drops larger in size for easy pickups. There are subtle borders on some of the items to indicate certain recipes or map tiers and drop sounds for a large array of items.
Special Mention: Crymsius’s Loot Filter
Note: This loot filter still shows as 3.6 Synthesis but it has been updated for the Legion League.
Specifically designed for colorblind users the Crymsius Loot Filter enhances the current Path of Exile item colors and adds a boost to the ones that are difficult to see. Because of the minor tweaks, the loot filter is still beautiful even for those that are not colorblind. As with most filters, you can customize most aspects and the filter comes with three presets – Leveling, EndGame, and Strict EndGame.
