Coveted Possession is a divination card. A set of nine can be exchanged for five Regal Orbs.

Coveted Possession can be dropped in the following areas:
The Catacombs • The Ossuary (Act 5) • The Ossuary (Act 10) • Bone Crypt Map
The Catacombs is an area in Act 3. This area is connected to The Marketplace. Similar to The Crypt Level 2, this area is a maze of rooms that ends at a large bridge. In rooms with bottomless pits, Ink Spinners will climb up from the darkness and attack players. Monsters deal primarily cold damage and necromancers use the curse Frostbite, so high cold resistance is strongly recommended.
A Regal Orb is a PoE Currency item that can be used to upgrade a piece of magic equipment to rare. The current modifiers are all retained and one new random affix is added.
Sold 2 at 4c each and I see them being listed for ridiculous prices on poe.trade. Yet I can’t sell my regals for 1.5c each. Do they do something other than convert 9 into 5 regals or something? Why not just buy regals at much lower prices.
if you are on a temp league then people use them for the redeem divination card set challenges.
Today has been an interesting day for me as I went ahead and tried to buy up a bunch of sets for the challenge. Many cards were fairly priced and reflected the price of the reward for turning in the set, with of course a reasonable markup since people like myself are buying these for the challenge. If an item sells for 40c, I might expect to pay 50–60c altogether for the set of cards.
With a few sets however, people seem to have put little to no thought into the price, and don’t seem to want to be reasoned with. “Coveted Possession” for example requires 9 cards to complete a set, and rewards the player with 5x Regal Orbs. I believe Regals are worth 2.5c, but for this example let’s just say 3c.
5x Regals valued at 3c = 15 Chaos
15c/9 cards means each card has an actual value of about 1 2/3 chaos. A fair price for the card is probably about 2.5 to 4 chaos. 14 of the 16 sellers at this hour have no listed price. Two individuals who aren’t even online (Scam conspiracy theory?) have listed theirs at 8c and 15c respectively. The people without buyouts seem to be going based off that information and think their item is worth that much.
Things to Keep in Mind
This is an example of people setting the price too low, they could easily be selling the card for 1.25–1.5ex a piece and it would be a fair price. As it stands, you could buy the cards, get the achievement done and sell the staff to break even, or potentially even make profit as I did if you’re able to haggle for a cheaper price.
Figure out the value of the reward for turning in the set measured in either chaos or exalts, divide by the number of cards needed to complete the set, and multiply by 1.25–1.5 depending on how fast you’re looking to sell vs how much profit you want to squeeze out of the item.
