The “Cube of Rapacity”, a new gameplay mechanic that gives Torchlight’s dungeon-crawling an intriguing risk-reward component was revealed during the community webcast. The mysterious cubes that can be taken from Desire Incarnations can be Divinity Slates, which are rare artefacts that fit together like a jigsaw. In the new season, complete Divinity Slate patterns to gain rewards, but beware: the Cube of Rapacity has a way of punishing Hunters who become overly avaricious.
