Legendary Items

From Diablo 4 Wiki
Legendary Item Diablo 4
Ancestral Legendary Item

Diablo 4 legendary items are at the top tier of the itemisation system. As item quality increases, an item’s affixes improve allowing players to dip into areas of their skills they may not have focused on in their skill tree. This enables players to create more diverse character builds.

Legendary Items and Legendary Aspects (the orange bit of text) are intrinsically tied together.

Diablo 4 Item Tiers

The tiers of items progress as follows.

  • Normal: 1 modifier
  • Magic: 1 random modifier
  • Rare: 2 extra random modifiers
  • Unique: 4 affixes and 1 Unique modifier
  • Legendary: 3 random modifiers and 1 Legendary modifier (aspect).

Legendary Items come in different Item Powers and the higher the level the greater the stats:

  • Sacred - Item Power 625 - 750 - Drops in World Tier 3
  • Ancestral - Item power 780 - 925 - Drops in World Tier 4

Legendary items that drop from monsters level 95+ will always have an item power of 925.

Legendary Aspects

For the most part, Legendary items are tied to a class but many function well for all classes. They are often sought after for their Aspect (the orange text) and this part of the item can be extracted and stored in your Codex of Power for use on other items.

Simply visit the Blacksmith and salvage the legendary item, the item will disappear but the Aspect portion will be stored in the Codex where you can access it for the rest of that season and imprint it (at the Occultist) onto any other Legendary item (replacing its existing Aspect) or onto a Rare item making it Legendary in the process. On the Eternal Realm Aspects are stored forever.

How to find Legendary Items


Whilst you can't target-farm bosses for specific Legendary items you can target-farm some Legendary Aspects to add to your Codex of Power but rather than monsters being the source it's simply a reward for clearing particular dungeons.

On completing the dungeon the rewarded Aspect will be automatically added to your Codex where you can upgrade it (via the Blacksmith as you find better versions of that Aspect on Legendary Items later on. Not all Legendary Aspects can be gained as dungeon rewards but there are enough available to get you started.

The menu below links to all Legendary Aspects available and if it can be rewarded the name of the specific dungeon to do that is noted.


You can also gamble for them at the Purveyor of Curiosities with your Murmuring Obols.

Gambling will reward you with Normal, Magic, Rare and Legendary items so it's a long shot you'll get the exact Legendary Aspect you are looking for. However, you can improve your chances by focusing your gambling on the cheapest item type that Aspect can appear on. For example the Incendiary Aspect can only appear on a ring and the Aspect of Hardened Bones can only appear on a Helm, Chest, Pants, Shield and Amulet.

What else can I do with Legendary Items

  • You can salvage Legendary items you do not want to keep at the Blacksmith and the materials will be stored to use later in different crafting recipes. The Aspect will also be removed and placed in your Codex of Power and if it is an upgrade to one you already have in there it will simply upgrade it.
  • You can trade Legendary items with other players unless you have crafted them in any way such as with Masterworking, Enchanting or Tempering, at which point they become 'Account Bound'.
