Enchanting Hotfix Live on Consoles
Blizzard deployed a hotfix to enchanting on the Ultimate Evil Edition version of Reaper of Souls. It adjusts the materials needed to enchant Amulets and Rings at the Mystic so that it uses lower quality Gems. Read below.

A hotfix has been issued for Ultimate Evil Edition which affects the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. This hotfix makes an adjustment to the materials needed to enchant Amulets and Rings at the Mystic, reducing the quality of required gems from Flawless Imperial to Imperial.
Please note that since this is a console hotfix, as opposed to a full client patch, there are some key differences of which players should be aware.
- Parental Controls:
Users on all four platforms must be signed into their respective PlayStation Network or Xbox Live accounts to be eligible for hotfix (PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold subscriptions are not required, however). The hotfix will automatically download in the background when you progress to Ultimate Evil Edition’s Main Menu.
- New Gaming Sessions:
- On the PS3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, users may be required to play online* in order for the hotfix to be saved between gaming sessions. Ultimate Evil Edition games created on one of these consoles while offline may not have the hotfix enabled.
- On the PS4, users will only need to download and install the hotfix once while signed into their PlayStation Network account. After the hotfix has been downloaded and installed, no additional steps will be required. The hotfix will remain active, even if subsequent games are created offline.
*This is not a change to Ultimate Evil Edition’s optional offline play mode. Ultimate Evil Edition games created on PS3, Xbox 360, or Xbox One which were previously hotfixed, but are no longer connected online can still be played as normal; however, the hotfix may not be active.

High Level HC 3 Player GR
Drahque recorded some high level 3P Greater Rift footage over at Twitch. This (world) record took them roughly 8 hours of attempts to be achieved, and it a testament to how dedicated these players are. Check the gameplay here!
