vaal orb

vaal orb is a new path of exile currency introduced into the documentary. it can be used through corruption. the corrupted items will have unpredictable conditions and special changes. the ordered items will no longer be able to use any poe currency (including replies to the rubbings of eternal orbs). the corrupted items will be marked with red letters.

corrupted items can randomly produce one of the following changes:

corrupted equipment

turn one or more sockets into white sockets(white sockets can use all colors gems).

reroll the item into a new six affixes item with randomized color and number of sockets, links and affixes. in this case, there is a 1/36 chance the item will have 6 sockets and 6 links (if the number of other corrupted effects is included, the probability is 1/144). add a vaal affix to the item, and the vaal affix will be attached to the preaffix position of the item. if the item has an preaffix, the vaal affix will replace the preaffix of the item. each piece of equipment will have at most one vaal affix. 

no changes after corruption (in this case it is still be regarded as corrupted and the currencies can't be used on it)

corrupted map

upgrading or downgrading a level of the a map to a new map, this is the only way to get a vaal temple map in the game.

reroll the map affixes into a rare map with eight affixes.

unidentify the item, retaining its affixes and quantity bonus. unidentified magic or rare maps receive a 30% bonus quantity. 

no changes after corruption (in this case it is still be regarded as corrupted and the currencies can't be used on it)

corrupted skill gems

upgrading or downgrading a level of the path of exile skill gems, by this way, there is an chance to upgrade the level 20 gems to level 21 gems.

the effect is to raise the current status, not to improve permanent upper limit. if you touch the level 18 gems to level 19, you can only practice to level 20.

add or subtract 1-10 quality. poe gems can have up to 23% quality this way. 

change the normal skill to its corresponding vaal skill.( e.g. change haste to vaal haste)

no changes after corruption (in this case it is still be regarded as corrupted and the currencies can't be used on it)

corrupted strongboxes

vaal orb can also be used to turn a strongbox in the wild.

some or all of the items within the strongbox will become corrupted.

vaal skill gems

vaal skill is a variation of the general skill. players can open the vaal vessel and randomly acquire a kind of vaal skill gem, or change the skill into the corresponding vaal skill by using vaal orb. vaal skill will have certain differences from the original skill characteristics. vaal skill can't be used as unrestricted as general skill. before using vaal skill, its gem must first be charged by collecting souls. once a vaal skill collects a sufficient number of souls, it is charged with one use. some skills can be stored multiple times. others need to be recharged every time they are used.
