Path of Exile – All Steam Items You Can Buy

Path of Exile

This guide will be covering the details and information of all available Steam items for Path of Exile. Along with the Steam items, you will also find the difference of Steam items from the items sold in the Path of Exile store.

Path of Exile Steam Items

Skulls (Steam Winter Sale)

These Skulls were also introduced in a Steam Winter sale of previous years. These skulls were made to be bought and sold on the Steam Community Market, and the costs for the items are player-driven but are also based on rarity. The image below shows the full set.

  • Crystallised Skull

Skulls (Non-Event)

I actually found these items incidentally while doing a market search for the skulls in the previous section and figured I would include them here. I’m simply not sure how these skulls are acquired. If I were to wager a guess, it’s likely something to do with related items found in the micro sale system in Path of Exile.

  • Rhoa Skull
  • Cow Skull
  • Sabretooth Skull

Steam Items vs Path of Exile Store Items

So I’ve been told, most people that actually play Path of Exile don’t care about the Steam Items related to the game because some of the cosmetics you get in the game are a lot better. When I actually got into the game to see what they were talking about, I noticed that there were a lot of cosmetic sets that could be purchased and applied to a character.

The thing about the Path of Exile sets is that they have cosmetics for every slot, not just the helmet slot. Notably, the Path of Exile sets has a lot more eye candy to them as well. The items that were designed for the Steam Community Market have thus far been exclusively head slot items.

Since Path of Exile is free to play, they make their money with the micro-transaction system in-game. Thus the cosmetics in-game also cost a lot more than the few cents you can pay for one of the more common Steam Items on market.

Regardless of which you go with, the next section shows you how to equip the skins to your gear.


Equipping Cosmetics

The Steam Items are classified as Cosmetic Items in Path of Exile. They have no special uses or abilities, they are simply custom pixels. This section shows you how to equip your Steam Items on to your character. You will not lose the items in gameplay after they are equipped, however, I have noticed that only one character can use a particular skin at a time. If you want multiple characters to use the same skin, you will need to have duplicate skins.

Path of Exile

In the screenshot above, you see the menu on the lower left open, and Cosmetics highlighted in the menu. Select this option or press K on your keyboard. Alternately, you can press I to open your inventory and select the Cosmetics tab in the upper right corner.

In the screenshot above, the helmet slot is selected and it shows you what options I would have for selecting a headpiece cosmetic in-game.

Pixelation

You ever noticed those cosmetics look over pixelated? This is because the default game settings in Path of Exile are for best dynamic gameplay, not for best graphics. However, there is a setting that allows you to see all those pixels as intended by those that designed the cosmetics. Let me show you how they really look!

Path of Exile

This screenshot shows the default settings, with the pixelation in the cosmetic and actually anything animated, like the fire in the background.

Path of Exile

This screenshot shows the setting toggled to disabled, which creates sharper graphics but may also affect your gameplay.

To toggle this setting yourself, press O on your keyboard for options, scroll down to the advanced settings and disable the Dynamic Resolution setting.
