So I have been playing Path of Exile on and off for a while and have a Witch in the 'Normal ' league at about lv16, just got to Act2.
My expectation is that loot will drop which will be useful to my character. However I'm finding that most loot drops are grey, in fact, pretty much all loot is grey. If I kill a special mob sometimes I might get 2 blues, and a boss often drops a yellow.
Is there a trick to finding useful magical loot? Or do you simply find higher level grey loot and use the various gems, orbs and stones to upgrade it?
I'm confused by the loot system. Should I be running a full set of magic find gear, or similar stat? Should I just hoard stones and orbs to upgrade my existing gear? Should I even be bothered by loot at lower level? Or is this loot model a by-product of my being in the 'normal' league?
