Diablo III: Storm of Light – Excerpt Available

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Diablo 3 News

Blizzard Entertainment released an excerpt of the upcoming Diablo III: Storm of Light novel by New York Times best-selling author Nate Kenyon.

In this brief excerpt we can see the interaction between the Angiris Council and Tyrael in his mortal form shortly after the Diablo III cinematic finale where Tyrael took his place as the new Wisdom.

According to the Diablo III: Book of Tyrael, the mantle of Wisdom was infused into Tyrael by the Crystal Arch itself — which is something that happened off-panel and not in-game.
The excerpt shows the debate between the archangels of what should be the proper thing …read more

Mystical Source for the Sage Journey Set Does Exist in Diablo III: Reapers of Soul Beta

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Diablo 3 News

After three days of mind-blowingly farming the Mystical Source in Whimsyshire, I have finally looted the oh-so-very-elusive Mystical Source.

I don’t have the Sage’s Journey Set recipe. I simply wanted to loot it to demonstrate whether it existed in closed beta or not. Or who it could be looted from. Of course, also to add it to the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Legendary Crafting Materials guide.

It drops from a super-rare pony, and I don’t know if he spawns in normal mode. After nigh 80 runs in normal mode, I switched to Torment I mode. After 20-30 runs this pony …read more

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Diablo 3 News

Nevalistis posted a few juicy details on current changes yet to be implemented in the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls beta build and revealed some of the bugs the team knows of that are planned to be addressed in an upcoming build.

Most End-game Legendary items are meant to drop from Horadric caches earned through the Bounty system. Some of these Legendaries are Act specific.

Greater Horadric Cache will be removed from completing Nephalem Rifts. The loot from Greater Horadric Cache will instead drop from the Nephalem Rift Guardian itself.

Legendary items and Set items have a small chance to drop when purchasing …read more

The Horadric Hamburger Returns as a Level 70 Legendary Dagger

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Diablo 3 News

While farming for the Mystical Source (legendary crafting material), my templar accidentally hit the Diablo piñata and this dagger dropped. I loaded Adventure Mode Torment level 6, and clicked the dagger.
To my surprise, it was the Horadric Hamburger ramped up to level 70, which pops in my mind … will all level 60 sets make a return as a level 70 version? Chances are that’s the drill.

Locate the Forsaken Grounds and talk with the Beleaguered Farmer. He starts the quest titled Carrion Farm. Kill the four Plague Nest. The last plague nest will auto-spawn Sicklefang where the plague nest was located. If no Sydyru Bone drops, keep creating new games until it happens. Took me about 20-30 …read more

Diablo III Weapon Vendors / Merchants

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in Diablo 3 News

The following Diablo 3 merchants are random spawns which have a random chance to sell some really hard-to-find white quality items usually required to craft a Legendary Weapon. The Witch Doctor ceremonial knife legendary weapon requires a Tecpatl (white-quality item). It is sold by Adenah the Curio vendor.

Thus, this list might be useful to those who aren’t able to find a specific item that never drops from weapon racks.

The Quaking Vial is used by the Blacksmith Haedrig Aemon to craft a 2-Handed Mace named Sunder.

The Quaking Vial drops off elite Mallet Lords in the Hell Rift Level 1 (Campaign Mode): Hammersmash and Sledge. Open a campaign mode map and choose Act IV: 2. The Light of Hope — Corrupt Growths Tier 1. Search for the Hell Rift portal by destroying the Corrupt Growth. Enter Hell Rift.

A Persuader is required to craft this weapon. Flesh Render can be looted from the Weapon Racks in High Heavens. I found mine in Gardens of Hope 2nd Tier.

Living Flame is a legendary crafting material used by Blacksmith Haedrig Eamon to craft a legendary 2-handed weapon axe named Cinder Switch.

Living Flame has a chance to drop off the morlu caster Sao’Thall (Embodiment of Hatred). He is a Bounty target in Act IV: The Silver Spire Level 2 — however, he spawns in non-bounty maps too. I just killed him during Bounty: Aspect of Terror, for example.

Living Flame also drops from Rhau’Kye in Act IV: The Silver Spire Level 2 and Malfeas the Abhorrent (rare spawn) in Act IV: The Silver Spire Level 2 found at the Radiant Chapel …read more

The Maghda’s Tormented Soul is a random drop for killing Maghda. I looted about 5 of them in about 40 kills. Simply create a normal-difficulty Adventure Mode. Take the waypoint towards Act II: Road to Alcarnus. Enter Maghda’s lair. If she doesn’t drop it, leave the game, and rinse and repeat until she does.

Cain’s Destiny Set

The Maghda’s Tormented Soul is required to craft the Cain’s Destiny set at Blacksmith Haedrig Eamon. The Cain’s Destiny set adds +6 magical properties, and as you can see from the images below the stats are really good with +100% Magical Find, +50% Experience and …read more
