    The Regal Orb upgrades a Magic item to Rare, keeping all of the mods on the Magic item intact and adding a new random affix.

    The main use for Regal Orbs is when crafting something incrementally, making it Magic with an Orb of Transmutation Orb of Transmutation, changing its mods with an Orb of Alteration Orb of Alteration, and then finally upgrading it to Rare with a Regal Orb (the process can certainly get a lot more complex and expensive than that, but this is just an idea).

    This is a slower, more meticulous way of adding mods to an item in the hopes of getting the desired ones than simply using Orb of Scouring Orb of Scouring + Orb of Alchemy Orb of Alchemy or re-rolling with Chaos Orb Chaos Orbs. That said, the Regal Orb itself is typically valued the same as a Chaos Orb, so it’s not necessarily a cheaper option by any means.

    One good use for Regal Orbs along with the abovementioned process is when trying to craft a decent strongbox (of a type that is worth doing it on, like Arcanist/Diviner’s strongboxes). You can re-roll it as magic with Orbs of Alteration, (and add mods with Orb of Augmentation Orb of Augmentation) and then, once you have one or two very good mods (typically % increased quantity of items dropped or X additional items dropped), just Regal Orb it and open it as it turns out (without spending any more currency to further tweak it).
