Diablo III gets Horadric Cube successor

    
14

Diablo II fans are well-aquainted with that game’s Horadric Cube, a device that allowed players to toss items together and see what the cube spat out. Now in Diablo III, players will be getting the next generation of the Horadric Cube with Kanai’s Cube.

Kanai’s Cube, which is currently being on the Patch 2.3.0 test realm, promises to do many miraculous and beneficial things for the player. While the full range of the device’s abilities haven’t been detailed, Blizzard said that it will be able to strip out passive skills from legendary items and convert crafting materials into other types.

This special artifact will need to be looted from the depths of 2.3.0’s new zone, Ruins of Sescheron. Also coming with the patch are a new season journey interface, tweaks to combat, additional difficulty levels, and updates to the game’s crafting and adventure modes.

Sythalin Huh, no I just like PVP. I never collected gear and one shotted hackers with ears.

So they’re basically creating a system where you loot passives now.  They’ve gone full circle.  They had runes as loot in beta.  I feel like that made more sense than this.

Neat. I like that they keep on trucking. The season system is pretty clever.

bryanjturner  “a feature bonus that’s redundant since the Mystic already does what this cube does”
Massively’s wording is a bit misleading, you can strip the unique bonuses from artifiacts _and add it to your character as a passive_. Not just  stripping it, and replacing it with +1000 thorns damage. I think this is a pretty cool feature.

wjowski Reihen So you’re completely missing the point? Like in “I want to play that game after I have paid for it even if the company decides to shut down the servers”?

So basically they’re adding two rooms for an additional bounty with a feature bonus that’s redundant since the Mystic already does what this cube does.
So when are we getting substantial content like Act 6?

This game needs more PVP.

PizzaDoh fakepants Reihen Good point. There are ways around that, though. Rolling could be removed for PC gamepad users, or (perhaps less likely) rolling could be added for mouse/keyboard.

I’d like to think that it shouldn’t matter, outside of PvP/leaderboard competitive modes, if all control schemes can play together. Competitive modes should of course have separate leaderboards.
