What are the Diablo 4 resources? There are loads of raw materials and ingredients scattered around Sanctuary, and you may even find yourself just picking things up without even realizing what it does. Meanwhile, you could find yourself short on something you really need. Either way, we’ve gone to hell and back looking for all of the Diablo 4 resources below, so we can share with you where to find them all and what they can be used for.

Like with any expansive RPG game, you’ll spend a lot of your time in Diablo 4 looting your surroundings and picking up items from falling foes, sometimes not even sure what they do. Loaded with Diablo 4 weapons, jewels, and more, your main inventory needs regular clearing, while a separate, non-capped inventory stores your many potion ingredients and ores. With all those materials and items at your fingertips, it’s easy to forget where they came from, so here’s all of the Diablo 4 resources and their details, to help prepare you for the Diablo 4 release date.

Diablo 4 resources: The player interacts with an Ore Vein in the wild in Sanctuary.

Ores

Metals and gems can be obtained from ore veins around Sanctuary, and iron and silver are used for improving weapons and jewelry, while gems can be embedded in socketed gear. Scattered Prisms, meanwhile, are a legendary item that can be found inside the largest of world bosses – but of course you’ve got to kill them first.

Salvage

Diablo 4 Salvage is a mechanic that turns in unwanted items to the blacksmith, who scraps them for materials. While some of the items above can also be obtained through salvage, such as skins and ores, the following resources can only be obtained by salvaging rare weapons and jewelry. The resources you obtain can then be put back into your best items to upgrade them. Sigil Powder is the exception here, and is salvaged at the occultist from Nightmare Sigils in order to craft, well, Nightmare Sigils. The use for this is to change the level of Sigil, as you can salvage a Sigil from any tier to craft an alternative one.

Salvage Found/Salvaged from Use
Forgotten Soul Helltide events Upgrade sacred and ancestral gear
Veiled Crystal Rare weapons and armor Enchant and imbue armor, weapons, and jewelry
Coiling Ward Legendary armor Upgrade legendary armor
Abtruse Sigil Legendary jewelry Upgrade legendary jewelry
Sigil Powder Nightmare Sigil (Occultist) Craft Nightmare Sigils
Baleful Fragment Legendary weapons Upgrade legendary weapons

Refine resources

If you’re particularly low on some of the resources above, you might be able to craft them from others, otherwise known as refining. As with most of the recipes above, this will cost you in gold (200) as well as the resources required, so take a look at our guide to Diablo 4 farming if you’re in need of more of the shiny stuff, too.

To make Refine
