Season 25 of Diablo 3 brings the all-new Soul Shards that represent the Lords of Hell. And these Shards grant you immense power if you can get your hands on them. But just getting them isn’t enough upgrading them makes them even Stronger. So in this guide let us learn how to upgrade the Soul Shards in Diablo 3.
How to upgrade the Soul Shards in Diablo 3
In order to upgrade the Soul Shards, you need to use the new item known as Hellforge Embers. You can find them as drops anywhere in the Sanctuary. Each Soul Shard has 4 ranks and you can upgrade them thrice. Below are the ranks and their effects that you can see when you upgrade them.
- You get a unique power based on the type of your Shard at Rank 0.
- Rank 1 augments your Cooldown reduction, Life, Experience, Resource cost reduction, and extra gold from monsters percentage.
- Your Primary attribute is affected for a single stat like Dexterity, Intelligence, All Resistances, Strength, Ranged attack damage percentage, or Vitality in Rank 2.
- Rank 3 grants a unique power based on the Shard type.
A very important thing to remember here is you can’t control what attribute is affected by the Rank upgrade of your Soul Shard. So once you get the Rank attribute upgrade you can’t change it and will have to use it as it is.
