D4 Legendary Aspect Types Explained

Diablo 4 Necromancer Legendary Aspects

The legendary power of an aspect can be used by players in Diablo 4 once they head to the Occultist and use the Codex of Power with their Necromancer. While they are here, they can imprint the aspect on one of the items they choose, and the Legendary Power of that item increases. Since you are transforming a rare item into a Legendary item, make sure you have found one of the unique items that make this change seem worth it.

Additionally, in Diablo 4, each legendary aspect can be imprinted on a single gear slot and will provide buffs for your Necromancer depending on the slot. As a result, there are five categories they are divided into, and the buffs provided are based on that:

  • Offensive Aspects – can be imprinted on Gloves, 1H Weapons, 2H Weapons with 100% effectiveness bonus and Rings and Amulets with 50% effectiveness bonus.
  • Defensive Aspects – can be imprinted on Helms, Chest Armor, Pants, Shields, and Amulets with 50% effectiveness bonus.
  • Resource Aspects – can be imprinted on Rings
  • Utility Aspects – can be imprinted on Helms, Chest Armor, Boots, Gloves, and Amulets with a 50% effectiveness bonus.
  • Mobility Aspects – can only be imprinted on Boots and Amulets with 50% effectiveness bonus.
