How to Share Equipment Between Your Characters in Diablo 4
The long awaited Diablo 4 is finally here, being 11 years since the third installment. With its Beta Early Access being available to play right now for those who have pre-ordered the game. Although the full release of Diablo 4 is set to hit June 6th 2023, loyal fans of the franchise can enter the early stages of the game. Diablo 4 takes on similar mechanics when it comes to sharing equipment across your characters in the game, however with drastic changes regarding character builds, sharing gear and items may be harder than its prequel. This is our guide on how to share equipment in Diablo 4.
How to Share Equipment in Diablo 4
In Diablo 3 the main process of sharing equipment was done through the use of the Stash. This is your primary storage of a Chest where you can hold all of your crafting materials and gear that you do not want to have on your person as you play through the game. The Stash meant that no matter which Character you chose to be or whatever Build you want to run, you will have the ability to share all equipment you obtain through each playthrough with one another. This allows you to then theoretically pick up where you previously left off on another Character, to get ahead on a new Character Build that you wish to try out.
Unlike other games such as Destiny 2 which has you restart from scratch whenever you want to try out a new Class, Diablo allows you to start multiple Classes with the same equipment that you gained in your first playthrough. Perhaps you have decided that the Barbarian is not for you so you want to try the Sorceress instead, well do not worry as this is easily plausible and you will not be punished for restarting. Simply utilize the Stash by saving items there so that you can pick these back up when you need them. You can use this within the Beta as a means of building up crafting materials so that you can get upgraded goods when you start a new playthrough.
The Downside to the Stash System
Whilst the Stash appears to be a flawless system there is a downfall. Players will not be able to pass over any items in the Stash that is a Class exclusive. This means that any Class Armor or Weapon cannot be given to another Class. For example, if you are running a Necromancer Class and you want to try out Rogue, you cannot give this Character any Weapons specific/tailored for the Necromancer’s skill set.
