Diablo 3 has enough difficulty levels to accommodate everyone from the casual hobbyist to the most competitive gamers out there.
If you’re looking to get past level-70 greater rifts, there are a few things you should know. Given that a 70 is the same difficult as T13, the highest campaign difficulty, pushing beyond this point can leave you with some Malthael-levels of bad intentions unless you take the right approach.
How to Get the Stats You Need
When you’re shooting for greater rifts in the 70s and beyond, consider these tips:
1. Optimize Your Gear
Just because a piece of gear has the effect you want or can complete your set doesn’t mean you should stick with it forever. As you near the higher-level grifts, every stat on your gear matters. Find out what your build needs, and look for gear with similar effects. Don’t forget to reroll unnecessary properties at the transmog merchant.
2. Use Kanai’s Cube
Whether you’re looking to get better gems for your class, reroll the stats on a legendary/green piece of gear, or improve that already-epic ancient item, Kanai’s Cube gives generously. Though it does require a lot of materials, you’ll be getting those as you fight through Nephilim rifts and bounties.
3. Upgrade Your Legendary Gems
Legendary gems can be a game-changer when you’re trying to conquer greater rifts beyond what you’ve done before. Sometimes you may need to play the lower grifts over and over until you can get your legendary gems upgraded. You should the secondary perk unlocked on any legendary gem you have equipped, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to try and have them around level 50 or beyond if you’re tackling a GR70+.
Every Improvement Helps at High Difficulties
Fighting the legions of hell is never easy – especially on a difficult level that makes T13 feel like a tutorial. But with the right approach to gearing and character optimization, you can climb up the leaderboards like a true Nephilim.
