Diablo II: Lord of Destruction

See also: Horadric Cube

The Horadric Cube is an item needed to complete the Horadric Staff in Act II and Khalim's Will in Act III. It is first found in a chest guarded by Bloodwitch the Wild in the Halls of the Dead Level 3 beneath the Dry Hills in Act II; alternatively, it will drop from the second Super Unique Council Member killed in Travincal in Act III for any character that does not already have one in inventory or stash. However, each character can only pick up one.

It requires 2x2 inventory space to pick up. Once in inventory or stash, right-click to open its window on the left half of the screen: it has 4x3 inventory space of its own. Items can also be placed in it by left-clicking on them, dragging them over it and releasing them: they will be moved inside as long as there is enough space. Deckard Cain can identify items stored inside.

It can be emptied quickly by dropping it: its contents will be moved to inventory, provided there is enough space (otherwise, remaining content is dropped as well).

Aside from extra storage, it can be used to create new items or portals, or socket or upgrade existing items: simply place the required input items inside, then left-click on the Transmute button for the desired output. Any incorrect or extra input items will prevent them being transmuted.
