The Cauldron of Jordan is a nifty little artifact that players will be able to tote with them in their bags, allowing the ability to transform loot into gold, while still out adventuring in the world. Rather than hoof it back to town every time the bags get full, players will have the ability to reduce vendor trash to pure gold by placing the items into the Cauldron of Jordan.
Cauldron of Jordan Tooltip:
This is a huge convenience, which will really help eliminate downtime while playing. Players will now be able to spend more time slaying the forces of evil, and less time heading back into town to vendor unwanted crap. Not to mention… given the new auction house system, gold will actually be a valuable commodity in Diablo 3.
