Diablo 3 earns Legendary gems, portal to 'The Vault' on PS4, XB1
The "first major content update" to Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has arrived, bringing treasure possibilities that would make Scrooge McDuck salivate.

Legendary gems – which were added to the PC version this past summer – can now be added to your collection on console. These stones can be found in Greater Rifts and give players powerful abilities when socketed into rings and amulets. Legendary gems have been hit and miss with the PC community since their inclusion, with some threads debating whether or not they adversely affect the game's balance. Welcome to the conversation!
Legendary gems can also be acquired in The Vault, a new location added to the console version as part of today's update. Upon defeating those glorious little Treasure Goblins, there's now a chance that they will spawn a portal that transports players into The Vault. This new location features more treasure for the taking and a new boss: the Baroness Greed.

The update adds a few other changes and items, including Ramalandni's Gift, a consumable item that allows players to add sockets to gear.

For more information and a detailed list of the patch, read the official patch notes.
