Always Glowing D3CE Soulstone Mod

A mechanically-inclined fan upgraded his DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Collector’s Edition souvenir Diablo skull and USB soulstone to make it always glow, and thus greatly improved the looks of the item. Better yet, he shared his method with pictures and even made a video of the soulstone in action, flickering and glowing as he uploads files directly into Diablo’s skull, like something out of a new and hellish version of the Matrix. And now Diablo knows kung fu.

When Diablo 3 came out, there was one thing that bugged me about the skull and soulstone-shaped USB key that shipped as part of the Collector’s Edition…

Although the USB key glows when plugged into a computer, it normally just sits dead when plugged into the skull.

That seemed like a pretty big oversight. So I fixed my soulstone USB key to glow when plugged into the skull by turning the skull into a one-port USB hub!

  1. That’s the way the skull should have been in the first place. Awesome mod.

    Edit:Now you just need to find a way to fix the bottom so it doesn’t look crappy. Maybe refill it with something.

  2. I was thinking of something similar but I’m too lazy/unskilled to do that. I just plugged it into the front of my PC.
    The only problem I have with it is that they used kinda crappy led to illuminate the soulstone and the stone itself is not as clear as it could be.
