    Official Site updated, List of Interesting Item changes!

    - Legendary item stats are still hidden, but the DPS and attack speed value may hint at their affixes. Eg. Azurewrath now has some 450 DPS, before these updates it had around 220. Are these the final DPS values? It seems likely.
    - Crafting Materials have changed. There are no longer Legendary quality crafting materials except for Inferno (Fiery Brimstone).
    - Lower level Legendaries now Salvage in to 3x Rare materials of its difficulty. Same with Sets.
    - Inferno Legendaries / sets now salvage in to 2x rare mats and 1x inferno Legendary mat.
    - New Item called Tome of Secrets. Rare quality. It is used in nearly every high-level crafting/artisan recipe. It is also used to train the Artisans at high level. Interesting, almost every end-game craft requires these, as well as the previous materials.
    - Legendary crafting recipes seem like they have been removed, they are still there but all don't state the item they make, nor the ingredients needed.
    - High-level gem upgrades require Tome of Secrets.
    - Two dyes appear to be "higher quality" than the others.
    - It now costs 640k to level up Blacksmith to 10.
    - Costs 120k to level Jeweler to 10.
    - Far less Legendaries and sets showing

    Cool. Been desperate for any bit of change to that data. Thanks for the update.

    Cluckeye 51 Legendary: 180.6 - 224.7 DPS
    Windforce 60 Legendary: 530.1 - 661.1 DPS

    Boy do they ever. 10 tomes, one Radiant Gem.

    Actually it's more like 550 if you count all those needed from Perfect Square Emerald to Radiant Star Emerald.

    Re: Official Site updated, List of Interesting Item changes!

    Correct. If the item is "Hell quality or lower" you will only get rare mats from it. I remember this already being confirmed from beta patch 12 or 13. If you think about it, it doesn't make much sense to salvage mid-tier uniques for mid-tier legendary crafts. You outgrow them too quickly. Low level unique items definitely do exist, of course. We can see them!

    I was looking at another website which has apparently accurate datamined info, including the Tome of Secrets somehow, and their info matches what Blizzard just put on the website. Interesting to note are the item codes and ilvls for the pages and tomes. It seems like the pages drop on nightmare, the tomes drop on hell, and the "Tome of Secrets" (used for both artisans) drops in inferno. And with the quantities we'll need, they better drop like scrolls in D2.

    EDIT: good job Blizzard. You removed the "Plan: Staff of Herding" but not the "Plan: Nightmarish Staff of Herding", "Plan: Hellish Staff of Herding", or "Plan: Infernal Staff of Herding". And they still list the cost per gem upgrade as 50g.

    Thank you Blizzard. I was actually worried three days ago while playing the beta, how crafting legendaries was going to be like in the early levels. Now I don't have to worry anymore.

    Seems like Blizzard ain't gonna put all the uniques up on the website, I love the surprise of finding an item not stated there.

    Totally agree, I wouldn't mind if they did put up all the legendaries and sets but after the game has been released then.

    Should wait at least a month after release before putting everything up imo.

    I would like to know more about the item stats they have at high lvl though. That wouldn't be spoilerish, rather it would tell us, potential customers, something important about the game we are considering to buy.

    I disagree, especially with the RMAH, I'd like to know what items of value are available so i can make decisions ahead of time for what I'd keep and what I'd sell.

    I might as well add my opinion as well. I think Blizzard should have some legendary items on the website so players get a hint on how good potential finds can be in inferno. However I don't think it's necessary to reveal ALL the legendary items on the web.

    Re: Official Site updated, List of Interesting Item changes!

    Nothing's changed recently re: the dyes. I assume you're talking about the CE dyes that have been there for ages? Some dyes are higher level than others (though it seems that only affects when they can drop not what level you can use them), but you can only see that on the official site by how they are sorted by ilevel then alphabetically. You can see the levels at http://diablonut.incgamers.com/items/?t=items&s=48&g=1&f=1,7,59,60,63&sB=1.

    It looks like you get the first dyes around Act II Normal (l15), the next batch at the beginning of Nightmare (l31), the next the beginning of Hell (l51), and finally some Inferno-only ones (l60).

    I also noticed they decreased the amount of healing on the Health Potions.
    The highest potion healed 35000 HP before. Now it's just 12500 HP.

    So wait, what are unique inferno mats used for now? I don't see them used in any recipes.

    I miss the days when the Battlenet site was like the definitive source of info.

    These days, with wikis and whatnot, Blizzard's own Battlenet site often doesn't have the most in-depth information anymore =/.

    I do hope we see D3's battlenet site be like D2's Arreat Summit. I want to see a TON of information!

    Wait, so you aren't guaranteed a legendary salvage from a legendary item anymore?

    Re: Official Site updated, List of Interesting Item changes!

    Maybe I am missing something but did Blizzard take Median XL's cue in dropping sets only in the most difficult difficulty? Every set I seen required LV 60 which is complete crap imo.

    There are no longer Legendary mats before Inferno. But Inferno legendaries do 100% salvage in to Fiery Brimstone.
