I saw on a blue post that you could get ancient items from crafting. Can anyone confirm that we can get an ancient hellfire ring and amulet?

Yes, I can!

Any Legendary has a chance to roll as Ancient. This includes both the Hellfire Amulet and the Hellfire Ring (as well as Horadric Cache-specific Legendaries, like Ring of Royal Grandeur). It's worth noting, though, that the Ancient modifier does not alter Legendary affixes.

In short, an Ancient Hellfire Amulet won't give you additional passives. However, applicable stats, like Dexterity or Life on Hit for example, will benefit from the Ancient upgrade.

Hi Neva. Regarding cache servers... If we farm them now and open them when the next patch hits live, can the specific legendaries from these farmed caches roll as ancient items?


Good question. The answer is no. Caches acquired prior to the 2.1.2 Patch will not have a chance to drop Ancient items after the launch of 2.1.2 Only caches acquired after the patch launches will have a chance to drop Ancient items.
