Diablo 3 Season 27 screenshot of Magic Missile being buffed by the Angelic Crucible

With Diablo 4 slowly getting closer and closer, the Diablo 3 team has decided to get a bit experimental and really push the limits of player power. As such, the Season 27 update has now brought with it a brand new type of consumable called Angelic Crucibles.

These heavenly artifacts can be used to sanctify Legendary items, thus giving them perfect Ancient-level stats on all affixes while also preserving their Legendary Power. That alone would be strong enough to make you want to hunt these Angelic Crucibles whenever they might reside, but using them also gives you an additional new power to play around with!

Each class gets access to three of these powers, all of which are quite spicy. Here's an example of what Wizards can do: Storm Armor can be used to instantly kill random enemies or deal significant damage to bosses, Arcane Orb will periodically spawn four orbiting charges and generate an additional orb when cast, while Magic Missile will fire 10 missiles and gain the effects of the Seeker rune. Pretty fun stuff!

As is tradition, the Season 27 update has also brought with it a variety of balance changes, quality-of-life improvements, and cosmetic rewards to unlock. You can check out the full list of new additions, including all of the aforementioned powers, over at the Blizzard website.

Have fun with all of the new stuff, and if you're interested in Diablo 4's development you might also be happy to hear that Blizzard has recently released a brand new quarterly update.
