Where do you get the prices?
The official stash API over from pathofexile.com. Prices are automatically generated from the items players publicly list for sale.
How up to date are the prices?
All prices are recalculated within 60 second intervals. Prices on the website are always the most recent unless stated otherwise.
What do the 'change', 'daily' and 'total' columns mean?
Change refers to how much the price has changed when comparing the price right now and 7 days ago. Daily means how many of that item is listed every 24 hours. Total is the total number of times the item has been listed during that league.
The currency page is cluttered with too many different items.
Use the Group search option to filter based on Currency, Essences and other groups.
How do you acquire account and character names?
Through the stash API. Meaning that if a player has listed an item in a public stash tab, that character is recorded.
Why doesn't a character from X league show up in the characters page?
Only users who have listed something on sale using public stash tabs have that specific character recorded.
Item X has an incredibly high price at league start. Why?
Quite often the first person to find a particular item during a new league will list it for much more than it's actually worth.
Can you make feature X on this site less frustrating to use?
Do let me know and I'll see how it can be improved.
What are the API limitations?
Based on fair use. Most endpoints are cached for 1 minute. Excessively requesting resources will enforce a delay between requests
Some of the pages don't work with Internet Explorer
More like Internet Explorer doesn't work with some of the pages. But seriously, it's an outdated browser. You should upgrade to something newer.
I'm creating a new tool, but I'm unsure about X or have a question about Y.
