    What happened to the Horadric Cube after Diablo 2? Is it lost forever? Is there a chance to find such a rare item again or has Blizzard said nothing about its disappearance?

    Shouldn't the Horadric Cube be with Deckard Cain, since he is one of the last Horadrim?

    I'm trying to find if Blizzard did anything for a main story item transition from Diablo 2 to Diablo 3 here. If there are any small pieces of information you could find it would be greatly appreciated.

  • The Horadric Cube is not in Diablo 3. Given the Diablo series tries to extrapolate from a character having performed the actions in previous Diablos, my assumption due to the lack of evidence is that it remained in the possession of the hero who killed Diablo and Baal 20 years earlier until they passed away.

    The Horadric Cube would not have magically made its way back to Deckard Cain unless it was specifically handed to him. After all, he wasn't in possession of it in Diablo 2.

  • One of the small things I really enjoyed in Diablo 2 was the Horadric Cube. I know Diablo 3 has crafting NPCs, but a list of recipes just doesn't feel as "free" or experimental as jamming some stuff into the Cube and seeing what pops out. Does the Horadric Cube make a comeback in Diablo 3? Or is it replaced entirely by crafting NPCs?

  • When Diablo 2 was first released, there was a sequence you had to go through in order to get the unique rings. In order to get the Stone of Jordan, you needed to first get the Manald Heal and Nagelrings. All three rings are back in Diablo 3 (plus a bunch more). The Stone of Jordan (SoJ) became a unit of currency throughout Diablo 2, to the point where Blizzard created a special event that could be triggered by selling enough SoJ's. Does the Stone of Jordan in Diablo 3 have any special properties or significance that sets aside from other items in the game?

  • I recently attempted to convert a spare Horadric Lutefisk Cube I found into lutefisk. Instead of lutefisk, the cubes produced a fiery death. (I survived the initial explosion, but the fire got me the next turn. Cause of death is listed as "spell mine.") Are there any other items (e.g. N-dimensional Lathe) which produce Fun instead of lutefisk when placed inside the cube? If so, what kinds of Fun can I obtain through fanatical devotion to the lutefisk god?

  • In the new Android/iOS app/game/experiment called Curiosity, how long does it take for the cube to update? I did a ton of work in one section of the cube and I carved in my initials. Then I got on my wife's Android device, to see if I could see my work on another device. I couldn't find my stuff. In fact, it looks like an entirely different cube --- there was absolutely nothing in any area that looked remotely like what it looked like on my device. So I thought maybe it would take a while for my work to get updated. So we waited an entire day, and revisited the cube on both devices

  • My Diablo 3 account was hacked, I didn't care until I wanted to play Starcraft II, I couldn't log in because the hacker changed my password and my e-mail, he even put an authenticator in place. I called Blizzard, and they recovered the account for me. When I started to play Diablo III I noticed that I have about 1.5 million in gold, and probably the best equipment in game. It seems to me like hacked equipment to be honest. For example: Masked Fame 274 Armor 42 Dex 72 Vit 27 Physical Resistance 5% Life Can I get in trouble if I play with that character? Like getting my account banned?

  • Possible Duplicate: What exactly is a “guest pass” and how do I give it to a friend? I bought Diablo 3 from Blizzard's online store. Does this give me access to "guest passes" available in the retail boxes to let friends try out the game? And if so, where do I find them?

  • Possible Duplicate: How can I access the Auction House from out of game? I know Blizzard made an app for World of Warcrafts auction house, but have they done this for Diablo 3 as well? I checked my Iphone to no such luck, but since I don't have a Droid or Ipad, I wasn't sure if it was released for one of those platforms. If the app does exist is it free, have a 1 time payment, or monthly recurring? Really hoping there's an app for this somewhere or even an online auction house, but I haven't been able to find any online or on their site. Thanks in advance.
