Several players have discovered an unpleasant enchanting bug with the Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac. This legendary ring rolls with bonuses to all attributes plus All Resistance, and can turn out spectacularly well with good luck on the random affix rolls that add onto the others. The problem is the display via the Myst-chant doesn’t match the guts, and if you try to reroll just one of the attributes, you’ll erase them all when you choose a new affix.

    Yeah ok so i was lucky enough to find an obsidian ring of the zodiac ( a ring that rolls over 100 to all stats) and it was pretty good. I went to the mystic to see if i could make anything better. of the properties that popped up was 164 str so i figured i could take the tuffness hit and go for a 50% crit damage roll. WRONG instead of just re rolling the str IT REMOVED ALL THE STATS FROM THE RING (save intel) and now my ring is absoulte [email protected]#$ because even if i re roll it i can only get a single stat type and not +all stats like it was before

    MY issue is this: When enchanting it said choose what property you would like to replace and it only said 164 STR not ALL STATS THIS IS VERY MISS LEADING. i have a SS of it from in game and ill upload it shortly.

    so now i have a ring that was once amazing reduced to utter bull%^-* and i cant trade for one cuz they are acc bound O.o

    i was thinking about trying to get a roll back but i don’t know exactly when i would be getting rolled back too O.o this is just stupid.
    Grimiku: I’m very sorry to hear about your frustration, but I do have some information on the subject which hopefully will help a little.

    Simple, straight-forward display.

    For clarity, we didn’t intend to allow players to re-roll the all-stat affix on the Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac, so the Enchanting UI for it right now isn’t optimal. Unfortunately, this isn’t something we can hotfix, but we do plan on adjusting the UI so that the all-stat affix is not a re-roll option in an upcoming patch. We don’t have an ETA on that patch just yet, but it should be available in the next few weeks.

    In the meantime, please note that once the all-stat affix has been removed there isn’t a way to get it back, so be sure to keep that in mind when enchanting the ring until this address can be addressed.

    The display of this item’s stats on Blizzard’s game guide is bafflingly complicated, with multiple tiers of stats and no obvious way to figure how they are added or combined. (You see a screen of it to the right.) I think it’s incorrect as well, since every example of this ring that I’ve seen (maybe a dozen so far in clan chat notifications) has had a VIT roll in the same numerical range as the STR/DEX/INT roll. Plus the All Res is 80-100 at level 70, though perhaps that’s just a scaling up issue that’s hard to decipher from the Bliz game guide.

    That said, it sounds like Bliz will need to put the +all stat bonus as an orange legendary property, since those are the item affixes that can’t be rerolled. Which will make for some oddity in display, with a bonus to all four attributes of 170-200, and then possibly additional bonuses, listed separately to mainstat and vit. Players will have to do actual math, addition even, to calculate the actual bonus to their attributes!

    The best ObZod I’ve seen yet was my own roll at 60 in D3v2 a few weeks, which you see below. The 3 random affixes were +dexterity, +vitality, and +6% Critical hit Chance, with the Dex and Vit added seamlessly to the inherent +to all attributes. I’d gloat, but 1) this ring went down with the level 60 Demon Hunter who was wearing it when BAD THINGS happened, and 2) it was only a lvl 60 find pre-RoS, so if it still existed I’d just be bitter that I hadn’t found it a month later.

    I can find a dark cloud on any silver lining, if I put my mind to it.

    Found in D3v2. Lost when the HC DH died.

    How are you guys doing with enchanting so far? Finished upgrading your Artisans and built up enough DiabloWikiDeath’s Breaths that you are no longer bottlenecked by them? And are instead bottlenecked by DiabloWikiForgotten Souls, the way nature and Josh Mosqueira intended?
