It should be costly i believe but would be great to have a chance to redeem what should be a top item. And costly would mean Some like fs db And legendary mats each. But then i wouldnt know you could still get garbage. I see that the cost would be very debatable and perhaps tricky to arrive at reasonable numbers - I have nowhere near those kind of mats gifts, leg mats, 10k forgotten souls etc.
It would just be great i believe to have the opportunity to redeem a primal rather than salvage it …. This would certainly be the easiest from a development point of view. I felt that there should be some kind of cost but when one considers: how rare primals are, also how rare it is to find a relevant primal i.
I think many times the primal ancient item is just about there and with one enchantment it is optimal. For the case where you got more than 1 unhelpful affix, 1 or 2 reforges should sort it out … and then you can keep your mats for other things. One negative thing about such a thing could be that then players would feel compelled to farm for primal items and do reforge after reforge.
Perhaps another simple change would be to allow enchantments to 2 properties instead of 1 for primals. This should cover those cases where there are unlucky rolls and allow the item to be truly primal. Option 1 for the win, easiest to implement. Here Blizzard, i even wrote some over-simplified, pseudo code for you.
Good point Zwiebel, this would narrow things down a lot and greatly reduce the need for enchanting and reforging. Also, IAS on weapons is completely useless to some builds. Primals are just ancients with their values at the top of the affix range.
Suck it up, salvage and move on …. Or perhaps, for one season it could be tested, that reforging a primal always generates a primal of the same type. Good idea. Interesting idea for primals to be reforged only to primals… I think a lot of players would like that.
Speed Farming Builds for Season 20 / Patch 2.6.8
They could make the recipee require more materials to be more challenging but still rewarding. Another idea is to make a primal puzzle ring guaranteeing you another random primal just like the first time you complete a 70 rift. I 've only found 3 primal puzzle rings in my life. Maybe a middle tier build, that would be fun to play. Primal ancient item re-forge General Discussion. Benaiah February 10,am 1. Good day Some of you may the know the disappointment of seeking out a certain item for many hours, getting a primal ancient … but then with very unfortunate affixes.
What do you think? I have gifts So you mean iwould have options to reroll primal. Its not gonna happen. Benaiah February 10,am 4.By StanMay 24, in News.
How to Unlock Primal Ancient Items in Diablo III
For those of you who may have taken a break from gathering loot recently, we thought a quick refresher was in order to clear up any confusion about the differences between Legendary, Ancient, and Primal Ancient items.
In general, Ancient and Primal Ancient items are more powerful versions of Legendary items. They are identical to Legendary items except that their base attributes damage or armor and all non-percentile affixes roll higher values for both minimum and maximum possible rolls. Primal Ancients are for players who have largely completed gearing for their build or finished their Season Journey but want to continue playing.
We wanted to extend the excitement of seeing gear drop or spending Blood Shards at Kadala beyond obtaining Ancients in every slot. Primals provide an avenue for dedicated players to complete a build, without feeling like required upgrades. Primal ancients don't really have any use beyond looking cool. The problem is that even if u get a useful primal, it's likely to be worse than the regular ancient u have, because of a wrong stat. They should make primal always reforge to primal. Or come up with another way to make them relevant but not required.
Instead they made them not required by making them irrelevant. I disagree with this. Even with imperfect stats, a primal weapon is still amazing because of max main stat, max damage range and max legendary affix. Especially on items that have massive ranges, things like Deathwish, for example.
You can disagree all you want, but i'm telling you, by the time you get such a primal, you'll already have a very close to primal rolled ancient with the right stats. Also, read better my previous post 'cos i clearly stated my point there already, which you clearly missed.
Which is like super lame 'cos, if you think about it, a regular ancient can be an upgrade to a primal. Maybe you have some problems with the English language like I have myselfbut your post said: Primals are likely to be worse then ancient items.
Primal weapons are almost always better then ancient ones. Because they have perfect weapon range, perfect main attribute and perfect affix if the weapon has such a thing.
Since those are in most cases the most important stuff for a weapon, you automatically fullfill most of what a weapon needs to have.
However, with other equipment it is different - there is a high chance you have 2 or even 3 attributes you do not want. Even with changing one it you still miss at least one important attribute. That's not true, you guys don't play the game, that's evident by your faulty reasoning. Especially for weapons, you lose a lot more dps by having a wrong stat eg. Just run any build on d3planner and you'll see. Maybe i failed to point out that i meant having a wrong stat after you already rolled one on the primal.
Which means it originally drops with more than one wrong stat, but that is pretty much implied, if one knows the game.
You just confirmed what i was saying, having an ancient with perfect attributes and above average mi-max values, will always beat a primal that does not have perfect attributes. Just run it on d3planner and the numbers will show. I am not getting promals to drop at all this season so for some reason having a hard time getting ancients too I am gr 93 and have logged at least 75 hours this season crazy.
If you comapre it to a close to perfectly rolled ancient: Perfect stats, near perfect values, high min-max range. But: What are your chances of a "perfect" ancient?See post for exact times for each region. Read on to learn more about the brand-new Season buff, three brutally feral new class sets, and a handful of item reworks coming in Patch 2. Season 20 is the Season of the Forbidden Archives. However, none understand this power better than the equally celebrated and reviled Horadrim, Zoltun Kulle.
Kulle was able to unlock and harness the power of the Cube like none before, leveraging its power to siphon and archive the energies of powerful items. With Season 20, we explore the power Kulle might lend to your fingertips if his experiments went unchecked. While normally a player can equip one power each from the Weapon, Armor, and Jewelry categories, Season 20 players can mix and match between all three! This might allow you to run two Weapon powers with one Armor power. Or perhaps you might choose to run three Amulet powers instead.
Beginning with Season 17, we began re-introducing previous Seasonal rewards to make them available to players who may have missed them the first time around. For Season 20, this means awards originally available from Season 8 are returning to the Season Journey. For Curses! Each Gift contains a few pieces from one of your Class Sets.

A: We are no longer providing anticipated end dates for Seasons.

Feel free to correct any mistakes via the comments — including grammar. As of now, my plan is to update and repost this guide every season, rather than rewriting basically the same thing every few months.
Since this guide is… uhm… pretty damn wordy! With that in mind this guide will contain a lot of information, some of it very in-depth, and my general idea is that you simply go to the section of the guide that interests you.

This site is a great place for builds, discussions and Diablo news. A site that makes it easy to navigate and plan your season journey ahead of time. This site keeps up to date and often posts the season journey guide pre season launch. Blud is probably my favorite Diablo 3 youtuber; he is laid back, enjoyable to watch but most importantly of all his content mirrors some of the higher-end strategies and meta-builds in the game.
Whereas Blud covers the high-end group builds, Rhykker covers some of the more casual builds, leaving out almost nothing in his extensive tier lists for each season. Also, if you want to learn more about the ins- and outs of Blizzard, Rhykker usually keeps you up to date on everything from job announcements to D4 blog posts.
The last couple of season Blizzard have done a great job at creating much more variety in viable builds. Both the Monk, Barb, Wizard, Demon Hunter and Necromancer have strong builds that are able to compete with each other for various roles in the end game.
Maybe you want to reach a minimum of paragon levels or complete the season journey, whatever your goals might be it can be helpful to know pre season kick-off. I typically create several characters each season. However, starting your season by setting up a dedicated support build for your group is a tactic not to be underestimated.
Support characters make or break the speed and efficiency of a group and mastering a support build is a great way to learn the dynamics of playing Diablo on a high level. It is generally stated that support barbarians zbarb is the most difficult role to master for high-end GR pushing so if you decide to roll support take some pride in that fact!Forgot your password?

Below you'll find Farming Tips and Strategies that will help take your farming speed to the next level. When you're trying to farm effectively, don't try to be Superman. Taking on a difficulty that's too much for your character is a good way to cut down your farming speed substantially, and you'll increase your repair bill besides. Farm on a difficulty that allows you to quickly move through packs without needing to slow down or focus on their individual abilities.
A good metric for knowing you're on a good difficulty is being able to one shot trash mobs, allowing you to quickly plow through the unimportant monsters to get to what you actually care about-- the elites. Non-elite monsters make up the majority of what you'll be seeing in both Bounties and Rifts, but if you're on the correct difficulty see aboveit should be relatively easy to blow through these unimportant mobs to tackle elites and champions.
Though in some cases it's unavoidable to face some trash mobs, you can quickly clear them out before getting back to your farming. While in Diablo 3 originally there was a slight benefit for killing every monsters in the form of extra rolls on legendaries, with Loot 2.
Additionally, while in Nephalem Rifts, your countdown timer is based on the number of monsters slain. By saving your kills for elites, you're maximizing the amount of rolls you get per Rift, saving you Rift Fragments per legendary acquired.
When farming Bountiesalways be sure to do so in a group, having each player go for a different bounty simultaneously. If you're following tip 1, each player should be able to clear each bounty alone relatively quickly, making multiple players beside one another redundant. Instead, each player should take on a different bounty or act, multiplying the speed at which you'll acquire Blood Shards and Horadric Caches by the number of players present.
Normal, Hard, Expert, Master, and Torment 1 level bounties have the same chance to drop a legendary.
Once you up the difficulty to Torment 2 and higher, the chance to have a legendary drop scales up with Torment 6 having the highest chance to have a legendary item in your cache. When doing split bounties, keep in mind the other players with you. Paired with the previous tip, you should always be farming Bounties on Normal difficulty. By split farming bounties on normal, you increase the speed at which you earn these rewards. Normal, Hard, Expert, Master, and Torment 1 bounties have the same chance to have a legendary item in the Horadric Cache.
Starting with Torment 2, the chance to gain a legendary item is higher with Torment 6 yielding the highest chance of getting a legendary item. If you're not looking to farm Horadric Caches, however Nephalem Rifts are the "end game" of Reaper of Souls ' farming.
The Rifts are fast and extremely densely packed with elite and champion mobs. Whenever you're not farming Rift Shards or split farming Caches, you should be pushing through Nephalem Rifts as quickly as possible. Grouping with friends is not only a more fun way to farm in Diablo 3, but recent changes have made it a far more efficient method to acquire loot and money.
Due to the 'Strength in Numbers' buff, grouping with more players means more rewards no matter what.
