Diablo® III

Question about transmogrification in UEE

In D3 console, will D3 characters with few legendary in stash/wearing be able to transmogrification in UEE?

If not, can we just drop it then pick it up in order to get transmogrification?

you don't need to keep the item to get the transmog. the transmog is unlocked the second you Identify the legendary.

at least that is how it is done in the PC and I am pretty sure that would stay the same

On PC your old (legacy) items don't count towards unlocked transmogs. You have to find the items again. Might be the same for console.

Are you asking if legacy Legendary items (ones that you currently have) will unlock as a Transmogrification option once you import your characters to Ultimate Evil Edition?

This is a good question, and it turns out the console version is going to work differently than the PC counterpart. Legacy items from the original Diablo III will automatically be unlocked as Transmogrification options in Ultimate Evil Edition. You won't need to find those items again, so be sure to hang onto any Legendary that look the way you want.

That is great news! Thanks for the information, Grimiku!

I was bummed when the PC version did not do this. Glad to see some of the cool looking items I kept will apply to this change.

That's cool and all.. but where's our 2.1.0 patch for console release? Probably not happening.

Nice to know, but... will we also get transmog items for stuff like the old Playstation-exclusive items from vanilla version, if we import our characters? Like the Infernal Helm and Hero's Journey. On a side note, can we import these items to Ultimate Evil Edition?

Infernal Helm


It would be odd to not have it, since Infernal Pauldrons are introduced =) (to match the helm, as I'd like to believe)

Araxom has been working on some console related tasks, and found the answer to this question while doing so. This isn't the first time that I've seen players wondering how preorder items, and PS3-exclusive items will transfer to Ultimate Evil Edition, so I'm happy to address it now that I can. :)

The Xbox 360, and PS3 preorder items will carry over to UEE on Xbox 360/Xbox One, and PS3/PS4 respectively. These items include the Infernal Helm, Angelic Wings, Bottled Cloud Dye, and Bottled Smoke Dye.

The PS3-exclusive in-game items work slightly differently. They'll carry over to UEE on PS3/PS4 as well, but will require players to connect to the internet to do so. For clarity, these items include: The Hero's Journey, Drake's Amulet, Leoric's Gauntlents, Crimson Angelic Wings, and Leah's Ring.

Thanks for the answer.

But what do you mean with "connect to the internet"? Is that one time only?

Will Console D3 have usable 2H weapons in Torment 6?


More than likely. It will probably have everything us PC users want/need.

This does not seem to be the case. Why can't I get my legendary weapon skins to show up?

I have new information to share regarding this subject. Shortly before shipping UEE we made a design change that resulted in Legacy items found in Diablo III to no longer automatically unlock as Transmogrify options when imported over. As a result, only Legendary items found in UEE will unlock as appearance options for transmog, and those found previously will not.

Small issue really, but with legacy item bonus from current gen take up room in your stash and they cannot be dropped or destroyed. I think you should have increased the stash size or made those items not count.
