In Diablo 4 Season 3 (Season of the Construct), Tuning Stones augment and enhance the skills and stats for Governing Stones, providing players with greater utility on their Seneschal Companion.

There are a total of 27 Tuning Stones to collect and upgrade in Diablo 4 Season 3. Players can equip their Seneschal Companion with 2 Governing Stones and 6 Tuning Stones, one Governing stone for each attack skill, and three Tuning Stones to augment the powerful ability even further.

You can get more Tuning Stones by completing the new Diablo 4 dungeon type, Vaults, and by slaying Constructs within. Further, the new Constructs enemy type also spawns during new world events, called Arcane Tremors.

Enemies in Vaults and Arcane Tremors also have a chance of dropping Shattered Stone, which you can use to craft both Tuning and Governing Stones via the Jeweler.

You can also upgrade your Stones to further increase your Seneschal Companion's power. Players must either craft or loot the same Stones and fuse them together to upgrade to a higher level. Blizzard explains:

 

To unlock the full power of the Stones, you will need to increase their raw power by leveling them. Collect or craft duplicates of the same Stones, fuse them together to grant experience and eventually level up your currently held Stones. Increasing the level of these stones increases the potency and ability of these attacks. Increasing the level of your Tuning Stones can add additional projectiles or augment the damage type they perform.
