Jobs | Crafting Diablo III: RoS Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Jobs are one of the two basic activities in the Adventure After selecting Adventure Mode and starting your playthrough, the game will randomly select 5 tasks for each act, giving you a total of 25 missions. You can freely use the portals in the town, to teleport to the selected area, which is possible thanks to the modified world map. The diagram also allows you to teleport to another player, for several seconds. You simply need to click the icon that represents them, on the map.

Bonuses for jobs

Two acts, of the five, always provide additional bonuses. This means that, for completing missions in these acts, you receive a doubled number of Blood Shards- the currency that you can spend to buy randomly generated items at Kadala's camp (a new NPC merchant who can be found in every town).

Job types

The game generates several types of jobs, which can be divided into the following types:

  • Event - any event (side mission) of the story mode, whose completing is necessary for the completion of the job. It allows you to check the events, which are necessary to obtain achievements, easily.
  • Elite opponent hunt - you need to kill the violet elite opponents, who is staying in a random location of the area. If the location is small enough, (e.g. towers in Act III), you first need to reach the next level of the underground. Completing the quest also requires you to kill a specific number of standard enemies. The number may range between 40 and 150.
  • Boss hunt - a contract to kill a boss of the act is a central point of each set of missions and it occurs always, regardless of the other quests. To reach the target, you need to cut through one of the locations, although there are exceptions. A perfect example is the battle with Zoltun Kull in chapter II, where you can kill him within a minute or so - you simply need to enter the location, where the boss is, kill him and leave.
  • Dungeon purging - it usually concerns the second level of the underground, although there are cases, in which you do not need to find the stairs to the lower level, beforehand (e.g. Scavenger Den in the Fields of Misery in Act I). To complete this job, you need to exterminate all of the dwellers of the dungeon. Towards the end of the mission you get to know how many opponents are still left, before you complete the job).
  • Cursed chests and shrines - it requires you to find a cursed chest or shrine, which is located in a randomly selected location of the land. Clocking on the object starts the event connected with killing enemies. Among the opponents, there may be a boss (e.g. Ghom), elite monsters or regular opponents (in a single pack or in five consecutive waves). Very often, clearing out the cursed chests and shrines may require you to fit within a predetermined time limit. If you fail to do that, you will not be able to open the great chest. Extermination of monsters in time results in the appearing of an additional chest, although this is not a rule.

Rewards or jobs

Apart from the high number of experience points and a bit more modest reward in gold, completing of jobs lets you obtain Blood shards - a form of currency which is available only in the Reaper of Souls expansion pack. You use it to buy items from Kadala (the merchant in the camp). The amount of shards that you are charged for each item varies, depending on the type of weaponry/armor that you are using however, you cannot be sure, what you will get into your inventory, as a result. What you receive, at random, are only magic items, yellow (rare) in the majority of cases, blue, a bit less frequently and orange (very rare, legendary).

You receive an additional reward after you have completed all five jobs in the given Act. It is the Treasure of Horadrims, which you receive from Tyrael after you return to the city (note! - here, you need to talk to him, before you leave the game, or else the valuable reward is gone for good). The chest contains several items - crafting materials, keys for Nephalem Rif, additional Blood Shards and, or course, magical weapons .

There is a low probability that the Treasures of Horadrim drop legendary items. Legendary items found in Horadric Cache are exclusive to act, you can't acquire them from any other source. It's worth noting, that completing tasks on the highest difficulty level - Torment VI - you have a 100% chance to get a legendary item out of a Horadric Cache

Farm Split

Completing jobs is time consuming so, the smarter players had the idea to split the responsibilities among themselves. Each participant of the game performs one of the jobs on their own and then, together (or not) they complete the fifth one. The name for this process is split farming.

The game is much more difficult, in this form, but also more profitable . A well-harmonized party is capable of obtaining the Treasures of Horadrimms faster and, at the same time, max out on their chances for rewards, legendary items predominantly.

Legendary items from the Treasures of Horadrims

Below, you can find a list of all of the legendary items, which you can find only in the Treasures of Horadrims. Under the original name of the weapon, there also is a bit of information on which Act it is available in. The only exception is Act IV, where there is a chance that all of the below items drop.

Note! The numerical and percentage values, in the below descriptions, are for the 9 April 2014. There is a chance that they are changed a little, in the future versions of the game.
