Unique Items / Uniques in Diablo 4

Uniques are the highest tier of items you can find in Diablo 4. They have unique and powerful effects that can completely alter the way you play your character build. While they are incredibly rare and way harder to find than legendary aspects, uniques seem to have the potential to be Best-in-Slot gear with a special effect, 4 affixes and distinctive looks. In addition, they come with a background flavor text.

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.

Examples of Unique Items from a Quarterly Update pre-Alpha. Tooltips and items may be changed by now.

Most likely more uniques will unlock at a higher level than what was available in the preview version.
