Can someone eli5 the cube dealy please?
It's one of my fourth chapters objectives.
There are a few things you can do with it.
To accomplish any of them just put the items listed into the box and hit transmute
Thing number 1:(MOST IMPORTANT) you can destroy items with special abilites to gain access to those abilities as a permanent bonus
Any item you destroy that had a special ability you can now equip that ability as an added bonus. You can only equip 3 abilities, one from a destroyed jewelry item, one from a destroyed weapon, and one from a destroyed armor piece(which is basically anything that isn't a weapon or jewelry). For instance if I make the cube eat a ring of royal grandeur I can then equip the special ability Reduces the number of items needed for set bonuses by 1 (to a minimum of 2) even though I do not have the ring equipped I still gain the bonus.
You can accomplish this by putting the item you want eaten + one of each of the new materials(the butterfly, angel skin etc. there are 5 different ones) you get from horadric cache's + 5 death's breath's
ONCE YOU HAVE EATEN AN ITEM YOU CAN ALWAYS GO TO THE CUBE AND SELECT THAT ITEM'S ABILITY!
Thing number 2: (VERY helpful, potentially anyhow) You can reroll a legendary item's stats entirely. It remains the same item, but rerolls the stats as if it were just dropped. It can even become ancient if it was not, or lose ancient if it already was.
This one costs the legendary item + 5 of each of the new crafting items that drop from horadric cache's + 50 forgotten souls.
Thing number 3: (meh) You can turn a lvl 70 rare(yellow) item into a random legendary of the same type. If it was an amulet you get a random legendary amulet. If it was a crossbow you get a random legendary crossbow etc.
This one costs the rare item + 25 death's breath's + 50 reusable parts + 50 arcane dust + 50 veiled crystals.
Thing Number 4: (potentially very helpful for completing sets) You can turn a set item into another random piece of that same set. This only works for sets that have 3 or more pieces to them, and the item cannot roll to be ancient this way.
This one costs the set item + 10 death's breath's + 10 forgotten souls.
Thing Number 5:(potentially fucking hilarious, but kinda costly) You can remove the level requirement from an item.
This one costs the item you wish to remove the requirement from + a rank 25 gem of ease.
Thing Number 6:(interesting and kinda helpful if you have a stupid amount of one type of gem) You can turn 9 of one type of gem into another type of gem of your choice.
This one costs the 9 gems you wish to change + 1 gem essence of the type you want them to become(buy this from squirt) + 5 death's breath's
Thing Number 7:(meh) Convert 100 of one of either the white, blue, or yellow crafting materials(NOT DEATH's BREATH'S THOUGH, ONLY THE REGULAR ONES)
This one costs 100 of whichever you want to change + 1 of whatever you want it to turn into + 1 Death's Breath
There are also 2 special things you can do.
SPECIAL THING NUMBER 1: Make a portal to the cow level.
This one costs 1 Bovine Bardiche (it's a legendary polearm)
SPECIAL THING NUMBER 2: Make a portal to The Vault
This one costs 1 Puzzle Ring (the one that gives you a goblin to follow you around and eat your white items)
