Season 31 Theme: Forbidden Archives — All You Need To Know

Season 31 re-introduces the Kanai's Cube theme. Beyond the quick season theme overview below, we also have a massive Kanai's Cube Guide, where we go in-depth over the effects of this game mechanic. If you are interested in the particulars of cube bonuses and how they can affect your build, make sure to check it out.

Kanai's Cube is one of the most important parts of Diablo 3 - the heir to the legendary Horadric Cube that provides services that are just as important to your character progression as item farming and paragon grinding.

The major use of Kanai's Cube is the three item slots for legendary power extraction. You can use the cube to extract legendary powers and place them in their appropriate slots:

  • Weapon — Weapon and Off-hand.
  • Armor — Any of the six major Armor slots (Helm, Shoulders, Chest, Gloves, Pants, Boots), as well as Belts and Bracers.
  • Jewelry — Amulet and Rings.

Picking a legendary power in any of these slots grants that power to your character without needing to wear the item.

However, some changes have been made for Season 31:

The slots in Kanai's cube will not be restricted to any category for the duration of the season. You can now mix between all three categories (Weapon, Armor, and Jewelry), allowing you to equip any combination. For example, two weapon powers and one armor power, or three jewelry powers instead.

During Season 31, you are free to test out new possibilities with Kanai's Cube!
