Whether you are starting a new seasonal character, dusting off an older character for some more fun, or just getting around to playing Diablo III for the first time, there is one item introduced in Patch 2.3.0 that you need to have: Kanai's Cube. Read on to find out what this item does, why you should get it, and how to obtain it.

 

What is Kanai's Cube

 

In a post dedicated to the topic, Blizzard revealed that Kanai's Cube is, from a lore point of view, a precursor to the famous Diablo II Horadric Cube. The Horadric Cube served a number of purposes, most notably allowing players to combine different items into new ones, upgrade existing items, merge gems and create potions.

 

Kanai's Cube works similarly, but its focus is on Legendary items. Here is what you can do with this item.

 

  • Extracting Legendary Powers. Kanai's Cube lets you destroy a Legendary item in exchange for permanently adding the most potent version of its Legendary Power to your collection. You can use up to 3 Legendary Powers of your choice at any time (1 from an Armor item, 1 from a Weapon, and 1 from Jewelry), changing freely between which ones you want to use. This lets you use Legendary Powers without having to actually equip the items from which they come from.
  • Reforging Legendary Items. This completely rerolls the item in question, affecting all of its stats. This also has a chance to create an Ancient item.
  • Upgrading Rare Items to Legendary. This allows you to upgrade an existing Rare item into a Legendary item. In effect, the Legendary item will be a completely new item of the same slot as the Rare item you used.
  • Converting Set Items. This changes an item from a given set into a different item of the same set.
  • Removing Level Requirements. Kanai's Cube also allows you to remove the level requirement from an item, allowing it to be equipped at any level.
  • Converting Gems. Kanai's Cube lets you convert 9 gems of one color into 9 gems of a color of your choice.
  • Converting Crafting Materials. Much like with converting gems, converting crafting Materials allows you to change the color of crafting materials. It can only be done in a bulk of 100 materials of the same color at a time.

A look at Kanai's Cube, with the Legendary Power collection tab open.

 

It should be noted that performing the above operations is quite costly in terms of associated materials required. For example, to convert a Set Item, you will need 10 Death's Breath and 10 Forgotten Souls. All the operations you can perform with the Cube, as well as the costs associated with them are listed directly on the Cube.

 

Two cool interactions with the Cube involve the unique_polearm_101_x1_demonhunter_male.pBovine Bardiche and unique_ring_004_x1_demonhunter_male.pngPuzzle Ring items. Using the Cube on the former will open a portal to the Cow Level (Not The Cow Level), granting you access to large amount of experience and Resplendent Chests, while using it on the latter will open a portal to the Treasure Realm, granting access to huge amounts of gold. Both the Bovine Bardiche and the Puzzle Ring are destroyed in the process.

 

Looting Your Cube

 

Kanai's Cube is located in the second level of Sescheron Ruins, called The Elder Sanctum. You can only loot the Cube in Adventure Mode, by teleporting to Sescheron Ruins and exploring until you locate the entrance to the lower level. There, you will eventually find the Cube inside a room, where you must simply click it.

 

Zoltun Kulle is located in your Town, and until you loot the Cube, he offers you a quest to do so each time you log in. Once you have looted the Cube, Zoltun becomes the NPC you will interact with in order to perform Cube actions (although the Cube, which is located right next to him, can also be interacted with directly).

 

Make sure you get and use Kanai's Cube in Patch 2.3.0 of Diablo III - learn everything you need to know here.

      With Season 12 live, Deadset has compiled a list of all our new and updated guides - a useful resource for your time in Sanctuary.
      Deadset's compilation of all guides for Season 12!
      Greetings, fellow denizens of Sanctuary! As many of you already know and have slain hundreds of demons with your trusty weapons, Diablo's 12th Season is upon us. Let's delve into the latest events from the battle of the High Heavens and the Burning Hells!
      -Deadset
      Why is Patch 2.6.1 a Great Time to Come Back?
      Patch 2.6.1 sees one of the biggest rebalancing efforts to the game since Patch 2.4, the strongest content Patch of the Reaper of Souls cycle. It builds on every good foundation set by it (class diversity, options for underused skills, introduction of mechanically interesting items) and skyrockets it to post-2.6 damage standards that has seen the likes of Lightning Archon and Trag'Oul Lancer builds. If you have ever craved a patch where multiple builds are considered top tier GR pushers and practically dozens of combinations are completely capable endgame farmers, this is the one.
      Basics Guides and Conquest Guides
      Before moving on to class impressions and recommendations, I just want to give a quick pointer to the new basics and conquest guides that I compiled recently. If you are new to the game, returning after a long break, or simply have friends that you want to get into Diablo, give those a read:
      Beginner Seasonal Guide - an introduction to Seasons, efficient leveling, crafting and gearing; Bounty Farming Guide - how, when, which bounties to do and the builds to do them with; Regular "Nephalem" Rift Farming Guide - quantity, quality and methods for Torment rifting; Greater Rift Farming Guide - rewards, competition and strategic considerations for GRs; Conquest Guides for Season 12 - the fast track to the Seasonal Journey completion. As a guide hub, Icy Veins receives a ton of messages on a regular basis for topics like these - I hope they are of use to the community and answer a lot of questions for Seasons to come!
      Barbarians
      Beginner's Guide to Barbarians - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Immortal King - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 12 Barbarian with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Immortal King (or Raekor) - Hammer of the Ancients Endgame Build - A top tier, visceral build that emphasizes melee devastation and pulverizes his enemies to the ground with Hammer of the Ancients. Support Barbarian - Group-oriented build that the entire team depends upon for scouting, long range monster pulls and protection from harmful crowd control affixes. Raekor - Furious Charge Endgame Build - A spec that mixes the powers of two sets, combining the all-around utility of IK with the agile Furious Charge devastation of Raekor. Might of the Earth - Earthquake Endgame Build - This spec favors devastating large areas over precise shots, exerts masterful control over the battlefield and sports a very satisfying rotation. Wrath of the Wastes - Whirlwind Endgame Build - With a playstyle distilled to its simplest essence, the build opens runs with  Whirlwind and mows enemies down in endless, spinning destruction. Frenzy/Thorns Legacy of Nightmares - More durable than most Barb builds, this spec nails the brutal hand-to-hand melee feel, slicing enemies at incredible speeds. Rend Immortal King - Nearly forgotten, but certainly not powerless, this exotic build bleeds enemies dry with the DoT powers of Rend. Crusaders
      Beginner's Guide to Crusaders - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Seeker of the Light - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 12 Crusader with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Akkhan - Condemn Endgame Build - This build is the embodiment of the melee spellcaster fantasy, exerting powerful crowd control over monsters and decimating them in waves of holy destruction. Akkhan - Blessed Shield Endgame Build -  This build plays on the archetype of using the shield as a weapon, charging it with holy might and reaping an entire field of demons with a single, mighty toss. Akkhan - Holy Shotgun Endgame Build - The Holy Shotgun Crusader is a tanky, impenetrable bulwark of steel that absorbs blows and retaliates in blasts of pure, radiant vengeance.  Blessed Hammer Seeker of the Light - The reigning champion of many Seasons, the Hammerdin build is still a beast in terms of AoE damage and solo GR pushing potential. Thorns Invoker - Likely the tankiest build in the game that is able to push into GR110+. Tough, focused and dead simple, this build almost Thorns itself to the absolute endgame. Sweep Attack Rolands - This Crusader build revels in high density rifts, shredding demons to pieces with the highest attack speed possible to the class. Bombardment Legacy of Nightmares - The Bombardment Crusader spec takes assorted legendary items into a highly mobile, autoaiming and visually spectacular Thorns combination. Demon Hunters
      Beginner's Guide to Demon Hunters - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Natalya's Vengeance - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 12 Demon Hunter with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Marauder - Cluster Arrow Endgame Build - Requiring deep understanding of DHs - the need for positioning and strategic companion placement - this build rewards you with incredible GR potential. Unhallowed Essence - Multishot Endgame Build - This build embodies the lone, brooding archer that reaps entire screens worth of demons in massive, fiery bursts of arrows. Natalya - Rain of Vengeance Endgame Build - This build transforms the elegance of Strafe into a potent tool that resets the cooldown of Rain of Vengeance, resulting in a potent, bursty playstyle. Natalya/Marauder Sentry Endgame Build - This build focuses solely on the Sentries, providing Demon Hunters with a cold, calculating playstyle cloaked behind a wall of turrets and animal companions. Shadow - Impale Endgame Build - The Impale build emphasizes on singling out and bursting down priority targets, resulting in a ninja-like, elite hunting playstyle. Grenades Unhallowed Essence - A deceptively simple build, whose sustained grenade damage and tanking potential outdoes many of its flashier counterparts. Fan of Knives Legacy of Nightmares - One of the more exotic specs in the game, the LoN FoK build thrives at low health values and turns them to its own advantage - playing with permanent crits. Monks
      Beginner's Guide to Monks - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Uliana's Strategem - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 12 Monk with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Sunwuko - Wave of Light Endgame Build - This unique ranged Monk playstyle blows demons up in screen-wide, incinerating beams of searing light. Support Monk - Group-oriented build that the entire team depends upon for healing, short range monster pulls and damage reduction from regular attacks. Uliana - Seven-Sided Strike Endgame Build - Widely regarded as the most satisfying build of the class, Uliana enriches the Seven-Sided Strike visual with Exploding Palm detonations. Raiment Shenlong - Generator Endgame Build - The Monk's bread and butter, this build pummels enemies into the ground with the sheer might of the primary fist attacks. Sunwuko - Lashing Tail Kick Endgame Build - Building on the classic Monk image, this spec jump in, whirlwind kicks the demons' teeth in, and jump to the next pack of monsters. Exploding Palm/Mystic Allies Inna - In this Monk take on a summoner build, you rally spiritual fighters at your side that burst entire groups of enemies with Exploding Palms. Necromancers
      Beginner's Guide to Necromancers - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Trag'Oul's Avatar - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 12 Necromancer with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Pestilence or Trag'Oul - Corpse Lance - This build alternates long scouting sessions while waiting on cooldowns with the utter devastation once Devour meets Land of the Dead. Rathma - Skeletal Mage - If you like to keep a tight rein on your minions with precise commands, leading the menagerie of undead at your side in resource-fueled frenzy, this build is the one for you. Command Skeletons Inarius - Turning the skeleton warriors into a vicious, unrelenting superior to Bane of the Stricken, this build is a Necromancer's one-way ticket to the absolute endgame heights. Skeletal Mages Trag'Oul - This is the alternate take on the Mages build, specializing in extreme speed farming, while still offering capable GR pushes. Bone Storm Inarius - While it took an undeniable nerf, this build is still one of the most relaxing, farming-appropriate melee builds of Necromancers. Corpse Explosion Inarius - An underappreciated offshoot to the close range Inarius variants, this build is among the most visually appealing and satisfying Necromancer builds out there. Witch Doctors
      Beginner's Guide to Witch Doctors - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Spirit of Arachyr - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 12 Witch Doctor with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Arachyr - Firebats Endgame Build  - Requiring minimal upkeep, this build spins a circular, no-aiming-required wave of Firebats obliteration around you. Simple, neat, and utterly effective. Helltooth - Gargantuan Endgame Build - This staple summoner build offers laid-back playstyle with automated minions, excellent sustain and protective options, and even some space for crowd control. Jade Harvester Endgame Build - One of the oldest examples of interesting set execution, this melee spellcaster trades the safety of range and hexes for aggressive dives and DoT consumption. Zunimassa Gargantuan Endgame Build - This build thrives behind a thick wall of Fetish summons and is accompanied by lumbering, destructive Gargantuan brutes in a pure minion playstyle. Legacy of Nightmares Spirit Barrage Endgame Build - Emerging from a convergence of obscure mechanics, this build offers a unique, spell-heavy, bursty playstyle that produces some of the most spectacular visuals of the class. Wizards
      Beginner's Guide to Wizards - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Vyr’s Amazing Arcana - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 12 Wizard with the Haedrig's Gift free set. DMO - Frozen Orb - Combining the Frozen Orb nostalgia of sorceresses past with the forgotten power of Slow Time wizardry, this build leaves enemies helpless, watching their frozen death creep ever closer. Firebird (or Tal Rasha) - Meteor - Reaching for the heartstrings of Meteor lovers, this build channels torrents of arcane energy to conjure destructive, burning meteorites into a pure visual feast. Vyr Archon - The oldest devotees to the Archon playstyle, Vyr and its complementary Chantodo sets got an awesome boost of power in Patch 2.6.1. Tal Rasha - Explosive Blast - Aside from its distinct cannonade of arcane blasts, this build is very attractive to Wizards due to its ability to include Sage's set for materials farming. Arcane Torrent Tal Rasha - Spawning off the addition of Manald Heal this guide offers not one, but three very fun, tanky, non-Archon lightning variants to build around. Conclusion
      In short, Patch 2.6.1 is one of the best times Diablo 3 has experienced in terms of build diversity and sheer endgame potential. A living proof that pure numbers patches can sometimes work wonders. Have fun and good luck in Season 12 - I leave you with my hour-long overview of some of my favorite builds in the new patch!
