Blacksmith: The Gear Upgrade Specialist
The Blacksmith becomes accessible early in your Diablo 4 adventure, precisely at level 10. Here, you can salvage items for crafting materials and repair your gear. Also, the Blacksmith helps you upgrade your armor with materials earned from the Salvage system.
The Blacksmith’s Salvage system enables you to convert gear from your inventory into crafting material needed for gear upgrading. Interestingly, salvaging also unlocks the item’s appearance for the Transmog System.
Upgrading your gear is an essential aspect of progression in Diablo 4. The Blacksmith can assist with upgrading both your armor and weapons, increasing the base damage of weapons and the base mitigation of Armor.
|Tier||Weapon Materials||Armor Materials|
|Tier 1||Iron Chunk||Rawhide|
|Tier 2||Silver Ore||Superior Leather|
|Tier 3||Veiled Crystal||Veiled Crystal|
|Tier 4||Baleful Fragment||Coiling Ward|
|Tier 5||Forgotten Soul||Forgotten Soul|
Purveyor: The Gear Gambler
The Purveyor allows you to spend Obols, a special currency earned during your adventures, to randomly roll items. This is an excellent way to potentially acquire rare and legendary gear.
Obols can be earned through special events in Dungeons and Open World Events. It’s important to note that you can only hold a maximum of 1000 Obols at any time, so regular visits to the Purveyor are advised.
The items available for purchase from the Purveyor can help you obtain rare and legendary gear. The cost of each item available from the Purveyor is as follows:
|Weapons/Off Hands||Axe, Sword, Mace, Wand, Focus||50|
|Bow, Crossbow, Two-Handed Axe, Two-Handed Sword, Two-Handed Hammer, Polearm, Staff||75|
|Armor, Jewelry, and Misc||Cap, Tunic, Pants, Ring||40|
Jeweler: The Gem Craftsman
The Jeweler, accessible at level 20 after completing a “Priority Quest,” allows you to upgrade your gems and Jewelry, and add sockets to your gear.
Upgrading your gems can significantly boost your stats as you progress to max level and beyond. The Jeweler can help you upgrade your gems for a small fee and some gold.
|Tier 1||Iron Chunk|
|Tier 2||Silver Ore|
|Tier 3||Veiled Crystal|
|Tier 4||Abstruse Sigil|
|Tier 5||Forgotten Soul|
To utilize a gem, you will need a Gem Slot on your gear. If your gear lacks a slot, you can visit the Jeweler to create one for a fee of 1 Scattered Prism.
Occultist: The Enchanter
The Occultist, a significant gold sink in Diablo 4, can Imprint and Extract Aspects, Craft and Salvage Nightmare Sigils, and Enchant your gear.
The Occultist can assist you in extracting Aspects from Legendary Gear, allowing you to transplant a Legendary Trait from one item to another. This process, albeit costly, is worth every gold piece, ensuring you can build around the Legendary Aspects you desire.
Once you’ve obtained a Legendary Aspect, you’ll need to imprint it onto another item. You can imprint these Aspects on various gear categories, including:
|Offensive||Amulet, Weapon, Gloves, Ring|
|Defensive||Shield, Helm, Chest, Pants, Amulet|
|Resource||Helm, Amulet, Ring|
|Utility||Shield, Helm, Chest, Amulet, Gloves, Ring|
Enchanting allows you to reroll perks on your gear into potentially better perks. The cost of enchanting varies based on item rarity:
- Rare Item: Veiled Crystals + Gold
- Legendary Item: Fiend Rose + Gold
This comprehensive guide to vendors in Diablo 4 demonstrates the significant role vendors play in enhancing your character’s progression.
