Diablo 3: Transmog and Enchantment Incoming

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,622MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The Diablo 3 site has been updated with a new guide for Reaper of Souls, the forthcoming expansion. In it, the team lays out the plans for both enchanting of player items and 'transmogrification', or the changing of an item's appearance. World of Warcraft players will be familiar with this feature.

Have you ever looted an item whose stats were almost perfect, but one property just wasn't quite what you had hoped for? Or perhaps you found an item you love, but are starting to outgrow its power? With Enchanting, you will be able to reroll one property on a Rare or Legendary item simply by speaking to Myriam, opening up her Enchant menu, and then paying a material cost. It's that easy!

While not all properties can be rerolled, most can, and you'll be able to reroll a single property over and over again, as many times as you like. This allows Enchanting to feel meaningful, while still allowing lots of room for you to hunt for even better base items (which, of course, you can then Enchant into even more powerful items, and so on).

    Finally, a way for me to take my amazingly cool looking, legendary sword of badassery and transmogrify it to look like the starting weapon!

    Very nice. Looking forward to it.

    Much more so looking for an announcement Reaper of Souls is coming to XB1 too, and that XB1/PS4 versions can import characters from XBOX/PS3 games and from battle.net accounts.

    The ability to transmogrify plus spam reroll until you get perfect stats plus tailor drops potentially destroys (again) the core principle of Diablo - farm for better/perfect loot. Blizzard should stop trying to reuse components from other games and invest properly.

    And instead reuse the first diablo? I'm not sure I'm following you. Do you even follow what you're saying?

    You can only re-roll one stat on the item, and once you choose the stat you wish to re-roll it locks the other stats in.

    Nice additions.. This expansion is going to bring the PC version where it should have been from the start.

    I barely notice what anyone is wearing in D3. This is a neat feature in Warcraft, but not as impressive in this iso-view game. Least not to me.
