Players of Diablo II will know just how useful the Horadric Cube is. This item however is only a faint shadow of a much more powerful artifact: Kanai’s Cube. Today, we will show you how it can help you get items you’ve always wanted for your Diablo 3 account.
Extracting Power from Items on your Diablo 3 Account
The Kanai Cube can be thought of as the more ancient and much more powerful version of the Horadric Cube. Aside from simple crafting material and gem conversions, the Cube can also take the core of your items on your D3 account. To be more precise, you can extract a Legendary power from your items. This power will then be added to your collection list. Once you have a power extracted, you can equip it without equipping the item itself.
There are some restrictions on this system however. For starters, you can only have one Legendary Power equipped for each category. That is one for weapons, one for armor and one for jewelry. Second, you can only equip powers found on items that their class can usually equip. Note however that powers can be swapped freely like items.
Reforging Items on your Diablo 3 Account
For players who get their items the hard way, sometimes you get items only close to what you need. This can be because it is missing a stat or is not at the rarity you want. Kanai’s Cube offers a solution however as it has the ability to reforge a Legendary. This will remove all enchants on an item and randomize all rolls on it. It will be as it was a brand-new drop. If you’re lucky you can get turn your item into an Ancient with the stats you want. Of course, there is the risk that your Ancient will be turned into vendor trash.
More Than Just Items on your Diablo 3 Account
Aside from being a powerful item, Kanai’s Cube is also a tribute to an amazing artist. The name of the artifact is from Keven Kanai Griffith. A talented artist and part of the Blizzard family. He worked on World of Warcraft and helped create the moody environments of Diablo III. The real-life Kanai passed away on October 17, 2014 due Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. The Cube was named after him as a tribute.
