What are the Diablo 3 Hardcaps?

I am having trouble finding official posts or people that have tested these values.

Please provide the source of your information as well.

Thanks

  • I keep seeing in some posts and articles online talking about hardcaps on some stats. They are mostly before the patch 2.0.1 and before ROS. Mainly speculating about Hardcaps. So, i am just wondering if hardcaps exist and if so, what are they?

  • I think there was some speculation that blizz was looking into hard capping some stats like crit chance/crit damage, etc but that never happened.

    This may not be exactly what you mean, but paragon points do have some caps: the bonuses in the Offensive, Defensive, and Utility categories have caps, and after you reach a certain (insane) point, you have to put all paragon points into the Core Stats category.

The only hardcaps that I'm aware of are:

  • 25% movement speed
  • 300% magic find

Bonuses from items and from paragon levels for these stats are treated with the same cap. For example, if you have 20% movement speed from Paragon levels and 10% from your boots, you will still only have 25% bonus movespeed total. The monk passive Fleet Footed, however, bypasses this cap and can bring your movespeed to 35% bonus, since that's not from paragon points or items.


Edit: As of patch 2.0.5. The hard cap for gold find was removed.

  • And the same can be said about shrines and pylons, right? (bypassing the cap)

    @prolink007 Yes, they are also exempt from the cap. If you grab a Fleeting Shrine or Speed Pylon, you'll still get a temporary speed boost over the cap. Apr 18, 2014 at 15:24

    @prolink007 there are also many skills that lets you temporarily go over the 25%, the limit is only for permenant speed boost via gear or passives. There is a crusader passive lowers it to 10% (while not in town)

    This is a great answer to the question. However, is there any confirmation on these being the ONLY hard caps currently? Any blue posts or tests?

    @WASasquatch Do you have a source for that? Torment difficulties can give well over 300% gold find, but that doesn't count towards the cap. I haven't heard anything of the item/paragon cap changing, however. Apr 18, 2014 at 20:18
