Diablo III Blacksmithing on PS3 - stuck at level 4 in Normal?

4 replies 4719 views Edited Sep 25, 2013

Okay, playing through the game in Normal mode and it seems that I can't progress past a certain level in smithing unless I get materials not available in Normal mode play.  Now, if I was playing online, I could get the mats at an auction house.

 

Other than the Magic Pony Level to gather mats, does anyone know of any other way around this?  Seriously would not have started to bother with smithing if I knew I'd get stuck this early (lack of blacksmith manual pages).

After I completed the game once, I started over, going up a level and have found what is needed, basically the pages. Hopefully this helps cause other than that maybe try salvaging some rare items.

Thanks.  Yeah, looks like unlocking the next mode via playthrough is the only way.  Yes, I tried junking some orange items, no dice....

On PC at least, you very rarely found any pages on Normal difficulty, but as soon as you started Nightmare, they REALLY started to drop.

 

Won't take long till you have all the pages you need and notice that you require *another* different material.

I didn't find any pages until moving up on difficulty. I believe that is intentional as it matches the regular level 30ish that you finish normal on.

Either way, fun suffs!
