MacroBioBoi started speedrunning Diablo 2 three years ago with one mission in mind: to crack the top ten runners of all time on the Sorceress. After achieving this goal, he began studying every aspect of Diablo 2’s mechanics and ultimately went on to secure multiple World Records and top 5 placements across all characters. He beat the World Record for Diablo 2’s no-attacking Pacifist run so many times that he went on to literally write the book on how to do it, and he pioneered one of the top speedrunning tactics in the game. To this day, he continues to dig into the mysteries of Diablo 2 to uncover more secrets.

The Vendors offer a variety of options for improving your character in meaningful ways! The Vendors include the Alchemist, Blacksmith, Purveyor, Jeweler, and Occultist. All of these Vendors are found in the main city of Kyovashad, but some additional Vendors may be found in the outlying villages and encampments you may encounter on your journey. Gather some Resources in the Fractured Peaks, and return to stay awhile and listen to these Vendors.
All information in this article is from the Press Preview Access of Diablo 4. The content presented here is subject to change, and will be updated as we learn more.
The Alchemist: Potions and Elixirs
The Alchemist is where you can spend your hard earned gold and crafting materials to upgrade your Healing Potions, and Craft Elixirs. The Alchemist is the vendor you go to see when you want to maximize your potential. Stop in and have the Alchemist improve your Healing Vial, so you heal more per potion or brew Elixirs for a buff to your Stats. You may also exchange your resources into others.
The Blacksmith provides you with options to upgrade your gear, salvage unwanted gear, and repair your items. Upgrading your gear can improve all of the stats of an item with multiple upgrades per item at an increasing cost. Salvaging gear will supply you with crafting materials for future upgrades. Repairing will only cost you Gold to get your item's durability back to full.
The Jeweler can be visited to craft Gem upgrades and socket them into your gear for a powerful stat increase. Stats on the Gems include adding more Damage, Resistances, Life or Damage Reduction to the socketable item. You may also unsocket your Gems without losing them and reuse them at another time. In addition, at the Jeweler you can upgrade your Rings and Amulets just like the Blacksmith.
The Occultist is the vendor for enchanting gear to change the stat rolls and craft Sigils which are required to open Nightmare Dungeons. In addition, you can imprint Legendary Aspects onto rare/legendary gear to customize your build with powerful effects. After the Blacksmith, the Occultist is your next best friend in Diablo 4.
The Purveyor is here to satisfy those gambling needs. Spend your Obols at this vendor to receive randomly rolled items for a chance at the best gear in the game! You can gamble an item to fill out any gear slot for the potential at upgrading to your current gear or gear that allows another skill build you may want to try out in the future. This is also a great way to target farm specific Legendary Aspects you may need for your build.
