Horadric Cube Recipes

The special transmutation ability of the Cube can combine gems to give you one of a higher quality, combine health and mana potions to yield a rejuvenation potion, and there are many other combinations that are yet to be found. We have compiled a list of the currently known "recipes" for the Horadric Cube, and we will constantly be adding more as Blizzard does. However, if you'd like to make a Horadric Cube Recipe submission, please don't hesitate to email us at news@planetdiablo.com. Thanks in advance for your support!

Version 1.10 adds recipes to three categories of Horadric Cube recipes, including Ladder-only Equipment Recipes, Equipment Recipes for everyone, and Rune Upgrade Recipes. Using these new recipes, you can repair any item that isn't ethereal, convert a base unique or rare item to one with exceptional-based properties or an exceptional unique or rare to one with elite-based properties, add sockets to unsocketed items, free an item's sockets, change a Low Quality item to a normal one, and convert runes to the next highest rune.

No Crafted Item recipes were added with v1.10, and none were changed or removed. See our guide to Crafted Items and the recipe listing for more information.
