You will find countless pieces of gear during your adventure in Sanctuary, many of which can be considered trash as soon as you find better equipment. Although the goblin in you may want to hoard all of your findings, the best thing to do is to salvage those items and free up your inventory. If you want to know how to salvage gear in Diablo 4, this guide can offer you some pointers.
Diablo 4 Salvage Items Guide
You can salvage items in Diablo 4 by visiting a blacksmith in a human settlement. They spend their time tempering blades at their stations, and they’re marked with anvil icons in your mini-map.
You can get various materials by salvaging your gear, with the most common products being rawhide and leather. The higher the item’s rarity is, the better the loot you’ll receive.
Salvaging gear will also unlock the equipment’s appearance in the Transmog menu. So, if you love the look of a specific item, you have to salvage it at a blacksmith to add it to the wardrobe.
The best way to quickly salvage numerous pieces of gear is by marking them as Junk. You can do this by pressing the Square button on PlayStation and then selecting the Junk option when speaking to the blacksmith. Items marked as Junks will have a “scratched” symbol in your inventory, so you won’t have to worry about accidentally salvaging precious and rare gear.
You can also auto-salvage equipment based on its rarity. The game will let you get rid of items from Common to Rare automatically, but you must manually salvage Legendary gear.
Although some players may be conflicted about choosing between selling and salvaging items, I highly recommend salvaging. This is because you can easily gain Gold through several methods, but you can get a lot of useful and rare crafting materials from salvaging unwanted gear.
