Arcane Dust

Crafting Material

Arcane dust is a valuable resource in Diablo III. It can be obtained by using a Blacksmith to salvage magic weapons and Armour. Sometimes you can find from monsters that drop it when you kill them! This particular item doesn't really have any use aside from being used for crafting rare items with higher level requirements than what your character may currently own. It's especially good for crafting legendries, set items such as jewellery or swords/sword skills with special enchantments properties to make them even more powerful.

Item Details

  • Obtained by salvaging level 61-70 magic items.
  • Maximum Stack Amount: 1000

Drop Chance

In Patch 2.0.4 (4-08-2014) Blizzard stated the drop rates for Legendary crafting materials have been changed to match the drop rates for Death's Breath. Those rates are:

  • Normal - 15%
  • Hard - 18%
  • Expert - 21%
  • Master - 25%
  • Torment 1 - 31%
  • Torment 2 - 37%
  • Torment 3 - 44%
  • Torment 4 - 53%
  • Torment 5 - 64%
  • Torment 6 - 77%

While the drop rates for Legendary crafting mats do scale with difficulty, their scaling is independent of the Legendary drop rate bonus slider in Torment 1-6.
