The item filter allows players to customize the visibility of the items that drop from the monsters in the game. 

The PoE item filter is downloadable from Filterblade. However, installing the item filter and accessing it in-game is a bit tricky. But, the convenience it brings is well worth a bit of hassle. 

This article discusses the PoE(Path of Exile) item filter and its installation steps.

What Is PoE Item Filter?

However, veteran players of the game create their own unique item filters. 

PoE released a new league, and Neversink is already providing players with a new item filter for the league. 

Neversink also updates its item filter for PoE every league on a three- to four-month cycle.
