Mystic | Crafting Diablo III: RoS Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Mystic is a new artisan added in the expansion: Reaper of Souls.

To gain access to the services of a Mystic, you will have to rescue her during one of Act V missions. In exchange for your bravery, she will offer you special services: Enchanting and Transmogrification.

Enchanting

Enchanting is basically changing one property of a magic item into another. This process is performed by the Mystic - an artisan added in the Reaper of Souls expansion. As the rest of the artisans, she needs to be unlocked (specifically one of the first quest in the act V) to be available in other camps and in the Adventure Mode.

Enchanting is very simple. To start the whole process go to the Mystic and put a particular item in the first slot of the first tab. The game will automatically make a valuation of the operation, depending on the class of given item it will give you a list of items that will be irreversibly lost. Blue and yellow items require Arcane Dust and Veiled Crystals. Orange will require sacrificing Forgotten Souls. Amulets and rings require using a high leveled jewels, this also increases the cost of the process.

How to obtain Forgotten Souls?

This is one of the rarest materials. You can obtain the Forgotten Souls by:

  • Using the Blacksmith to salvage legendary or set items - You will always get one Forgotten Soul with this method. You will have to salvage any legendary (orange) or set (green) item, which is of level 61 or higher.
  • Killing the Nephalem Rift Guard - a single Forgotten Soul is a reward for killing a Rift Guard, but it's not a guaranteed drop.

How does the enchanting work?

After placing an item in a slot, you will be given the list of its properties. Each one of them can be swapped by another, from a set list, which can be checked by clicking on a question mark (at the right side of each item stat).

Given the ring, which can be seen on the above screenshot, it's worth to enchant stat number 4, which is Life on Hit. If you want to increase the damage output of your character, the best one you should be aiming for is Critical Chance (from 4,5 to 6%). Enchanting is like gambling - after selecting a stat, the system will randomly select two new ones to select from.

If you, for some reason, arent satisfied with the new stat, you can always stick to the old one and start the whole process from the very beginning - Mystic | Crafting - Crafting - Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Game Guide

If you, for some reason, aren't satisfied with the new stat, you can always stick to the old one and start the whole process from the very beginning. In this case we were lucky, having randomized a perfect, 6% Critical Chance attribute! All you have to do now is to highlight the attribute you want to select and accept the choice by pressing the "Select Property" button. Voila! What happens at the enchanting process, is making the item Account Bound, preventing you from giving it to anyone.

Once chosen property, blocks the others. It means that up from that point, you can change only this particular option and no other. It is also worth remembering that further enchantments will cost more money. You can manipulate with the properties as long as you have the materials needed to perform the process of enchanting. The game does not limit you in any other way.

Why enchant the items?

There is a simple answer for that - to make the items more suitable for your character. Looking through all of the equipment very often you can find a weapon or a piece of armor that would fit your character perfectly if it only had one other property. This is the moment when the Mystic comes. It may not be very cheap, but it is definitely worth the price.

These operations need to be thought out though. Enchanting changes the item itself, so that we need to reconsider whether we are ready to take a risk or not. It is possible that few hours after the process, our plan for modifying the skills of our hero will change but then we will not be able to fully back off. Of course, you will be able to choose some other property, but your options will be limited.

Transmogrification

Transmogrification is the second use for the Mystic. It gives you the ability to modify the appearance of your items in return for money. Although you may not be having a big choice on the beginning, you will be able to unlock more options.

All you have to do in that matter is to find an item which design you've never seen before. This design will be then available in the transmogrification menu, so that you will be able to change the look of your item to the look of an item you have just discovered. Price you will need to pay for that may vary depending on whether you want to use the normal or legendary look.

Of course not every piece of equipment can be visually changed. This option applies only for the: armors, helmets, gloves, shoes, pants and bracers.
