INTRODUCTION

This guide will teach you how to craft generic flasks.

Crafting in Path of Exile can be extremely complex and rather daunting for new players, the video below will outline the most basic information you’ll need before diving in to the midst of crafting specific items.

This video shows how to apply the crafting process:

THE FINISHED ITEM

Depends heavily on what modifier you’re looking to get, some are deterministically target craftable whilst others requires powering through the layers of RNG the game forces upon us.

Here’s a LIST of all flasks you can craft on. A small tip here is that for both mana & life flasks you can always sell 3 of the previous tier flask to get 1 new flask of 1 tier higher back to a vendor.
Here’s a LIST of the different suffix modifiers that can be on magic flasks.
Here’s a LIST of the different prefix modifiers that can be on magic flasks.

The standard recommendation for “must-have” modifiers are usually bleed removal (Staunching), freeze removal (Heat) as well as curse immunity (Warding).

CRAFTING PROCESS

Since flasks can’t be rare we are only looking at 1 prefix & 1 suffix modifier making the crafting process only use 2 different methods. We will always start with Orb of Alteration Orb of Alteration to hit a specific modifier, this is the only thing we do for our prefix modifiers whilst the suffix modifiers have some of them available via beast-crafting.

The mods available via beasts are the following:

  1. “Of Heat” Removes chill & freeze effects
  2. “Of Dousing” Removes ignition & burning effects
  3. “Of Staunching” Removes bleed & corrupted blood effects
  4. “Of Grounding” Removes shock effects
  5. “Of Curing” Removes poison effects
  6. “Of Warding” Removes curse effects

These crafts only require 4 yellow beasts to be captured and is therefor easily available for everyone very early in any league you play.

Any other modifier you’re looking to get on your flasks will require the Alteration Orbs and/or the use of Orb of Augmentation Orb of Augmentation

TL;DR

  1. Decide which flask to craft on.
  2. Use Orb of Alteration Orb of Alteration, Orb of Augmentation Orb of Augmentation
  3. Fine-tune with beast-crafting if possible/required.

FINAL NOTES

As much as I love making guides, it is very crucial in a game like Path of Exile that you play the game the way you enjoy playing it. This guide merely describes the most effective approach to craft the best items.
I hope you found the guide useful and I wish you all many Exalted Orb Exalted Orb drops!
