Our previous guide discussed the Diablo 3 blacksmith. Now we move to the second artisan, Covetous Shen. This guide will teach you how to earn Diablo 3 items with the jeweler, as well as how to improve him. Check below for more.
Earn more gold by combining and saving Diablo 3 items
While Shen is a source of quests, his main purpose in your caravan is for gem creation and removal. He offers these services in Act II when socketed D3 items are first introduced. With his Gem Combiner service, you can fuse three gems of the same kind to get the next tier of the gem. Each time you use this feature, you will need to pay Diablo 3 gold and later additional pages or tomes. If you have a socketed item with a gem in it, Shen can do things for you: 1) Destroy the item and recover the gem or 2) Destroy the gem and return the socketed item. The fee for this service depends on the tier of the gem to be removed.
Training Shen with Diablo 3 gold
The tier of gems Shen can work with depends on his proficiency level. Like the blacksmith, training costs Diablo 3 gold and later on, pages or tomes. It’s always worth having a high level jeweler on your Diablo 3 account though. This is because the gem tiers nine and above do not drop from monsters and can only be obtained through combining.
