My Chaos Recipe Tab is Normal Tab with Weapons - Path of Exile
This is the biggest part of what makes or breaks doing the Chaos Recipe efficiently. Again, the principle here is that we never want to be manually "click-dragging" items around - instead, we set up the tab to fully self-organise by way of ctrl+click spamming. Inventory micromanagement is the biggest thing that gives the Chaos Recipe a bad name, so we're going to eliminate it. The interested gamers can poe orbs buy from those professional online gaming houses in the most affordable cost.
A fully completed recipe quad tab yields 48c. The layout structure also allows us a mentally autopiloted cash-out process where we empty our inventory and get 4c at a time, both avoiding vendor window layout hiccups and leaving 20c worth of inventory slots before you need to move the chaos out of your inventory.
So the way to go about this is to take the items you're farming and fill them out as follows. Only ever ctrl+click fill one category at a time until it's done; don't ever be tempted to manually drag shit around.
First 3 columns: a triple of 1h weapons (1x3), with an additional 24-30 of these sitting in your dump tab or a backfill reg/quad tab. We put this first because about halfway through cashing out our recipe tab, you will need to ctrl+click refill these in order to continue.
Next 4 columns: a double ilvl60-74 chests, with an additional 12ish sitting in your dumptab or a backfill tab. We put this second because when there are 5-6 linear sets (10-12 recipes or 20-24c) of gear remaining, we will need to refill these to continue, so we ctrl+click refill them right after we've ctrl+click refilled the weapons.
Next 14 columns: a double of hats, a double of gloves, a double of boots, a single column of belts.
Final 3 columns: a single of amulets, a double of rings. These will fill up the slowest - you'll be "waiting on them" to cash out - so we put them last to keep the fill process automatic.
Additional advice: In the first week or so of league, make your recipe tab a ~b/o 5c, and ID hats/boots/gloves/+life, %phys, +str belts/all rings and amulets. Whisper-spam = evaluate item, reprice to shop tab. Transition to full unID recipe after first week.
