This doesn't work the same anymore in 1.2 nor 1.3 and rings and amulets can't be gambled either. For ultimative it's fine though.

i was just making some learning signets and i put a regular (non sacred) amulet in the cube with the catalyst of learning. i cubed it, thinking the catalyst of learning was the disenchant, and it actually made a signet of learning. i tested this and it works with rings too. Is this intentional or is it a bug because jewelry isn't tiered?

it works for unique rings/amulets/jewels/quivers/su's/sets.

You should use the Short Questions Thread for things such as this in the future. Just helps clean forum up a bit. No big deal for now.

Hey guys I'm still looking for advice on the upcoming ladder reset.
Not gonna do a try-hard or anything, but I just want some more insight from experienced players before comiting to any decision.

So far I tried only a few builds as I joined median last month, and am still pretty limited in terms of knowledge of different classes and builds.
I've managed to build both a barbarian and UH caster, got the majority of charms except most difficult and impossible ones.
There seems to be a huge gap between collecting all easy / moderate charms and getting the difficult ones...

WHat are your advice on these two matters:
-What character to first start the ladder with ? does it need to be a farm-focused build, or can't I just focus on a character that aims to collect all charms ?
-What character build seem pretty opti for 1.3 now that patch is out ? I wanted to try building any strong amazon build, melee necro, any decent sorceress build ... what character seems like the best choice to allow me to see and clear 100 percent of game content ?

And overall question: what are you guys planning to play at the start of 1.3? Why ?
Thanks !

Quick technical question: do your WDM procs (thunder hammer, arrows, knives etc) get the buff from shadow dancer (buff claw damage and deadly strike) if you're wielding a claw?

Does the belladonna extract still need to be found or have they brought back the old recipe in this new patch?

It hasn't changed. They drop in alvl 85+, basically act 3 terror and beyond.

Welcome back Brackans!

Thanks for the clarification man.
Of course I read thru the whole patch note and have not seen any changes regarding this issue, so just want to make sure it's still as season 16.
Nah, after reading the answer then it's not "welcome back" anymore.
But anyway, good job with the new patch, wish you guys have lots of fun :mrgreen:

Why does the assassin have caster builds? They are mageslayers, they shouldn't have mana at all, maybe skills can use stamina or something new.
