Sometimes, it’s pretty difficult to get the kind of resources you need in Diablo 4, but that’s alright because there’s a much easier way to do it. While you could just wander throughout Sanctuary, taking out all the enemies and ore veins possible, you won’t really get the resources you’ll need to upgrade any of your gear without spending a lot of time trying for them. Salvaging gear in Diablo 4 is the much quicker and more efficient way to get resources needed for gear upgrades, and it’s actually really easy to do.
How to Salvage Gear in Diablo 4?
To salvage gear, you must make your way over to the Blacksmith of whatever town you’re in. Luckily, the Blacksmith appears in nearly every town, so finding them shouldn’t be a difficult task.
- Locate and interact with the town’s Blacksmith.
- Choose the Salvage tab, which should be open when you first interact with the Blacksmith.
- Click on the red square with the pickaxe symbol in the top portion of the Blacksmith interface.
- Click on the item in your inventory that you wish to salvage.
For the most part, you will be rewarded with Rawhide, Leather, and Iron Ore, but there are certain instances where you can get much more useful resources. The higher the quality of gear that you salvage, the better resources you will be rewarded with. That said, it’s quite important to save up the gear that you are sure you won’t use rather than just throwing them away or selling them. They can always be used to upgrade the gear you currently use instead.
Given how fast you can burn through resources when it comes time to upgrade your gear, it’s important to remember this mechanic. Not only can it save you tons of time, but it can also make everything so much easier.
What Is Salvaging Gear in Diablo 4?
Salvaging gear in Diablo 4 is an in-game mechanic that allows you to destroy unwanted pieces of gear in return for resources and the opportunity to use that gear piece as a cosmetic item. While it’s not the most useful mechanic in the game, it’s still up there regarding resourcefulness. Without it, you could be stuck grinding for resources for hours and sometimes even days.
Diablo 4 is now available on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles.
