Dead Reckoning in PoE; Cobalt Jewel for Skeleton Fans Explained

The vendor recipe of the Dead Reckoning gem has been introduced to PoE. The Forbidden Sanctum update gives players new options.

Path of Exile recently received The Forbidden Sanctum update, which stirred things up a bit in the game world. It has certainly made many players interested in PoE again. One of the new features introduced is a vendor recipe for Dead Reckoning. In this article, we will talk about this item and present Dead Reckoning recipe.

PoE: Dead Reckoning what it is

Dead Reckoning is a cobalt jewel that improves the elemental resistance of your minions by +7-10%. However, this is not its main function. It is a jewel of great value to those relying on summoning skeletons, as with a minimum of 40 intelligence in Radius, Summon Skeleton can summon up to 15 skeleton mages.

To use Dead Reckoning, you must place it in the allocated Jewel Socket on the Passive Skill Tree. You can remove it by right-clicking on it.

PoE: Dead Reckoning – how to get it

Until recently, there was no effective or quick way to acquire Dead Reckoning. The player was reliant on luck or on buying the item for quite high sums. However, The Forbidden Sanctum update has added an interesting new possibility.

PoE: Dead Reckoning – Vendor Recipe (The Forbidden Sanctum)

The Forbidden Sanctum update introduced a vendor recipe for Dead Reckoning. Vendor Recipes are an interesting mechanic. In normal cases, if you want to sell something, the vendor will give you payment for your equipment - and that's it. However, if you offer the right combination of items, he or she can give you something more powerful in return. This is a kind of hidden crafting mechanic.

The above means that there is now a set of items that, when offered to a vendor, will result in them offering you Dead Reckoning in return.

Players have managed to find the right Dead Reckoning recipe. If you want to create Dead Reckoning, you have to use 4 wands of the same base type, but different rarity (normal, magic, rare, and unique). Furthermore, the recipe also requires Summon Skeletons gem with 20% quality.
