Diablo 4 Transmog Items Explained

The item transmog system in Diablo 4 works pretty much exactly as it does in previous Diablo games except Immortal. That thing was too busy fleecing whales to have it in the usual way. In Diablo 4, you’ll be able to transmog Helms, Gloves, Boots, Pants, Chest armor and apparently Weapons. Here’s a quick rundown of how it works. If you find a piece of gear (say, a helm) that has great stats, but you don’t like the look of it, you can change its appearance to whatever other helm you’ve found as a drop or bought from the in-game shop. Same goes for every other item we’ve listed above. According to this update post, armor transmogs From the shop will be “usable on all characters of that class,” which is nice.

Another method that can technically count as a part of the Diablo 4 transmog system are pigments. These allows you to change the colors of the clothing and armor you’re wearing. Weapons are out of the picture here. So, pigments don’t fully change the appearance of your stuff, just the color. One more thing we have to mention is that you can only transmog items using the same type of item you’ve already picked up. You can’t use a helm you’ve never unlocked to change the look of your current helmet. That said, you can apparently freely dismantle or sell items and later still use them for transmogrifying purposes. That’s the situation at the moment. We’ll update the guide with more info if something changes at full launch.
