Why Buy When You Can Make?
Every veteran Diablo player will tell you that loot and gear is what is important to the dungeon crawler. Well, I’m here to tell you otherwise. The one thing more important is style. Thankfully, many games have their own customization option and in Diablo IV we have the transmog feature.
If you like the look of some armor, but not the stats, transmog allows you to carry over the cosmetics and apply them to better quality gear. Look good and play good; it’s what the players want. Unfortunately, it kind of makes one of the game’s own features obsolete.
In Diablo IV, there are a few ways to get cosmetics. You can pick up new gear on your journey, earn unique cosmetics on the battle pass, or buy them in The Shop. The battle pass and The Shop use real money/premium currency, but gear from dead bodies is free.
When you salvage gear, you get some resources back, but you also get to keep the look of the newly broken gear. Blizzard obviously would like players to spend money on cosmetics, but by salvaging your gear, you can circumvent that a little.
Diablo IV just came out, but already players are sharing their outfits on Reddit and other social media sites. As long as you are creative, you can create your own demonic drip out of the base items. Sure, the premium stuff will be locked behind a paywall, but style is a look, not price tag.
Diablo IV is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
