Finding the Keys - Keywardens Anuiran over on reddit has round up 'key' information on how to collect the keys. Currently on the PTR it looks as if Keywardens have a 100% chance to spawn in these areas. However they do not have a 100% chance to drop keys. The plan for the infernal machine drops from the Act 4 monster.
The Hellfire Rings
The Hellfire Ring Plan is found off Squirt the Peddler in act 2. The mats from these can be found most likley in the zones the Infernal Machine takes you. The mats needed are: [Vengeful Eye]x1 [Devil's Fang]x1 [Writhing Spine]x1 [gold]x50,000
There are four version that can be crafted. The rings have the following stats
170-200 Of your stat (Dex/strn/int) or 100 vit
4 random props
Increased XP by 35%
Chance to launch an explosive ball of Hellfire when you attack
New Legendary Item Drop Effect and Mail
Big thanks to Aggressive who was able to get on the PTR and take this picture. Also as we reported datamining post, it looks like "Mail" is in the game in some form, as you can see in this picture as well.
Mail will maybe be as notification that you sold your auction or won it? Also a way to send you promotional stuff (I bet there will be some kind of Diablo shop in the future, like pets for WoW...but not pets ofc hehe...then I'll quit).
Idhat light beam all there is to the "don't miss any more legendary drops" ? If so wow, that's completely useless.
It's my picture. If I recall correct there was a sound aswell, but I'm not sure. And I was to close to see a ping on map. Didn't see a shit on minimap tbh. Maybe it just not working yet.
If whole screen shined up would be nice, but I guess that ain't good for people with epilepsy.
The key making is pretty awesome. I think we should have more of this. like the wimsyshire one!
But they need to be a little longer to do quests. it would really extend the gameplay and make it more interesting. Its similar to the attunements in wow, and I loved that mechanic.
Its not for everyone, because not everyone can finish it and/or get into it.
Either its too hard or challenging or just too much time for some people that they wouldnt be able it.
And for casual purposes they can make Nightmarish or lower versions of it that are dumbed down, easier! So everyone will get to see it. =)
Really looking forward to this!
