Enchanting!

    Enchanting

    Enchanting will be the primary way for your character to maximize his gear. There are a few key mechanics though that most people aren't aware of. In this brief overview of the new features we'll introduce you to the most important parts.

    Overview:

    • You can choose one stat (at least this is how it was in the Beta) and if you reroll it once it becomes the only stat that will be able to be rerolled further. That is, if you have Strength, Vitality and Attack Speed on an item and reroll Strength, for example, then this is the only stat you'll ever be able to reroll again. The other stats disappear as options.
    • After you choose the stat you wish to reroll you can reroll it as many times as you want, but the price increases gradually
    • Affixes are currently categorized in a specific way. Most standard offensive and defensive stats can be rerolled into all other such stats. Secondary stats can be rerolled into most other secondary stats. There are specifics though, here are a few examples:
      • Chance to X affixes can be rerolled mostly into other Chance to X skills (examples: Chance to Stun, Chance to Freeze, Chance to Blind)
      • Skill increasing affixes can be rerolled mostly into other Skill increasing affixes (examples: Increase Tempest Rush damage, Increase Exploding Palm damage)
      • Single Resist affixes cannot reroll into All Resist and All Resist cannot reroll into a single Resist affix
      • Negative affixes like Andariel's Visage's increased Fire damage taken cannot be rerolled (as it should be!)
      • Right now it doesn't look like you'll be able to enchant into an affix that is already present on the gear piece. For example having Dexterity and Vitality - if you want to reroll Dexterity Vitality will not be one of the options, but if the piece doesn't already have Vitality it'll become an option
    • To reroll a Legendary item you'll need a Legendary ingredient. It's called Forgotten Soul and it currently works the same way as a Brimstone, but is for gear above level 60. You'll need one for each reroll, making Legendary enchanting quite expensive. Rerolling low level gear also requires a Forgotten Soul, instead of a Brimstone
    • When you decide which affix to reroll and click Enchant you'll get 3 options to reroll that affix, one of which will always be the old one in case you decide to keep it
    • If you want to be sure something can reroll into a specific affix a helpful question mark is at the end of each stat. Clicking on it displays all possible rerolls for that affix
    • Enchanting binds the item to your account

    Ha. Bagstone.

    Can you reroll for say +cold damage on a legendary amulet? If so what does that stat compete with? Eg can I reroll vitality to try get +cold damage %?

    I got a question. On official site in gam guide mystic open now. And if you click "view all enhanceable items" not all will be white. So we can't reroll on anything?
  • #4
    Any idea if you can rerolled "fixed" affixes when rerolling a legendary item?
  • #5
    No, you can't. You can only roll the random affixes of legendaries.

    no I don't think that its all. look at the second screenshot here, there is an amulet in the reforging tab. and in the game guide amulets are still greyed.

    can't imagine they don't allow helms, chests etc.

    btw, how is it with crafted items now? can you reforge crafted items?

    who cares. Whatever it costs we'll pay it.

    Just to clarify, you cant reroll legacy weapons. Can reroll Legendary 60 weapons you found in 2.0

    I think he meant that you can't enchant a 2.0 (lvl 60) Weapon's DPS into a lvl 70 DPS-Affix (elemental or black). Bagstone reported a similar info to me, saying his Wand of Woh wouldn't get past 1200~ DPS.



    And no, you can only reroll one stat neostars. Either 1 primary or 1 secondary, not one of each. Unless they changed that from the beta.

    You have to level up the mystic to reforge some type of items.

    Man that makes me both happy and sad.

    Sad because now a lot of legs I was holding on to will just end up brimmed... Happy because well... it would have been broken otherwise.

    Yeah, same here. Awesome because I really want to find gear and not hold on to my level 60 gear. Sad because no idea if I ever find a Wand of Woh again... but 1289 DPS (or something like that) are just completely useless now :-(

    bagstone i wish u can trade that wand of who with me
  • #19
    It's strange that they limited it to only re-rolling a single enchantment; the items become non-tradeable so what's the problem with trying to reroll stats you don't like?

    Also, I didn't check yesterday because only 1 char is in Act V but can you reroll Strength into Dexterity for primary stats if it's for a different character? Like I give a Strength-based weapon to a Monk, can they reroll dexterity onto it?

    I may have been using the enchanting UI incorrectly, but I didn't see where I could change str to dex/int. (My mystic is also not a very high level.)
