The Horadric Cube in Diablo 2 Resurrected lets players combine items via recipes to create different outcomes such as transmogs. Here’s a full list of all the new and old Horadric Cube recipes, along with the location needed to find it.

The Horadric Cube may be an essential quest item in Diablo 2 Resurrected, but finding it can be quite tricky if you don’t know exactly where to look. Once you’ve located it during the main story quest, the Horadric Cube can upgrade items, runes, and gems to help you dominate Diablo’s hordes.

Its handiness doesn’t stop there, though, providing 12 extra inventory spaces while only taking up four slots, meaning you can stock up on more items without needing to make frequent stops as you explore the game’s narrative.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Horadric Cube recipes

To use the Horadric Cube, you can open it by right-clicking on it within your Inventory. Next, place the items required for a particular recipe in it and select the ‘Transmute’ button. It’s worth noting that not everything is able to be combined, however.

Some items are less obvious, like jewelry, with The Cube being able to turn Rings into Amulets. Below, we’ve listed all of the recipes you’ll be able to utilize, along with its result.

The Horadric Cube is also used to transmog Runes. For a full breakdown of which runes can be combined, see our Diablo 2 Runewords guide here.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Horadric Cube location

The Horadric Cube can be found in Act 2 of the main story quest. This is after Andariel has been defeated and the player leaves the Rogue Encampment and travels East to Lut Gholein in search of the Dark Wanderer.

  • The Horadric Cube is found during The Horadric Staff quest in the Halls of the Dead. The item is heavily guarded and in the possession of a unique monster called Bloodwitch the Wild – so be ready for a fight.

Once picked up, The Cube is needed to fuse the Staff of Kings and the Amulet of the Viper to make the Horadric Staff. It’s also needed to fuse Khalim’s body parts and Flail together into Khalim’s Will, another important quest item. After you’ve used it for its main storyline purpose, the Cube is then yours to use as you wish.
