Sell or Salvage Gear in Diablo 4

When deciding whether you should sell or salvage your gear in Diablo 4, there are several things you need to take into account. First of all, are you low on Gold? If you are, then you should definitely consider selling some of the items that you’re not using. If for no other reason, then because you need Gold to repair stuff and upgrade your gear. On the other hand, salvaging things grants you very valuable resources, like various ores and skins. There are also necessary for upgrading your gear. Sure, you get a lot of those from enemies and chests and whatnot, but salvaging is the most valuable source. So, if you’re planning on upgrading a piece of gear and don’t have enough resources, salvaging is the way to go.

Another thing to consider when deciding whether to sell or salvage gear in Diablo 4 is that higher-value items give you better / more resources. In our experience, it’s pretty much always safe to sell gray items, while it’s probably better to salvage yellow items. Do whatever you want / need with blue items. With all of that said, you shouldn’t ever sell items that have a hammer icon on them. If you like the look of that particular piece of gear, you can salvage it and then change the look of a different piece via the transmog system. If you don’t like the look of the thing, then do whatever you please. And, yeah, those are our recommendations.
