Path of Exile players know that using Vaal Orbs can get some Corrupted Gems and POE Currency, but there are other methods available, which may be more labor-saving. If you don’t have any Vaal Orbs, you can go to the Vaal side area that appears on the map. It is essentially a damaged area that randomly appears on the map. It marked this area with a heart icon on your minimap and will glow red when you are nearby.

You don’t need to go through the Valbian area, but they will provide a good return. Each area has a boss guarding the Vaal Vessel. Go through this area, kill the boss, and open the container. Inside, you will have a 50% chance to find the Vaal skill gem.

It can also corrupt gems at the Altar of Corruption without the Vaal Orb. This altar is in a Corrupted Invasion Room in the Temple of Atzoatl. Placing a gem (and other corruptible items) on the altar will add two corruption modifiers, change all slots to white, or destroy the item. In the Temple of Atzoatl, you can also corrode gems twice in the Lapidary Lens in the invasion room of Doryani’s Institute. Here, a gem can be destroyed twice, but the same result will apply twice.

When you first start, this modifier is not the most important, but as you progress in the world, you will need powerful equipment and skills. Don’t forget to look for Vaal Orbs or damaged skill gems in the Vaal side area. At the same time, if you want to save some time to research more places, you can also Buy POE Orbs to speed up this process. Come on.
