Diablo 4: The Best Affixes [Legendary And Unique]

Affixes in Diablo 4 are a must to use to be able to win the battles. Read the guide and choose the best affixes for yourself.

Affixes in Diablo 4 are like buffs that increase damage movement speed, critical hit, and many other things. There are three different tiers for affixes: Regular, Legendary, and Unique. Among these, you should select the best ones to make the experience easier in the long run.

Key Takeaways
  • Affixes boost your damage, speed, defense, and many other things. 
  • They are divided into three tiers: Regular, Legendary, and Unique.
  • Each magic item holds 1-2 affixes, while the rare holds 3-4 affixes.
  • A legendary and unique item holds 4 regular affixes.  
  • Among the three tiers, Unique Affixes are the best ones in Diablo 4.
  • Legendary Affixes are two or three times better than regular affixes, so they are worth it.
  • Normal, Magic and Rare Affixes can be traded, but Legendary and unique ones can’t be traded.

What Are The Best Diablo 4 Affixes?

Regular affixes are the common ones, so they don’t give you many buffs. Legendary affixes are 2 or 3 times more efficient than regular affixes, making them a better pick. I think the Unique affixes are by far the best ones in-game and have a star icon like the Legendary ones.  So, your priority should be getting Legendary or the Unique ones to get the best buffs.

However, keep in mind that affixes depend on the item’s rarity. Also, depending on the item’s rarity, you can have affixes ranging from 0 to 5.

  • The normal rarity one has 0 affixes, and it can be traded.
  • Magic rarity has one affix, and it can be traded.
  • The rare one has three affixes, and it can be traded, too.
  • Legendary one has five affixes, with one being legendary, and it cannot be traded.
  • Lastly, the unique one has five affixes, one unique, and it can’t be traded.  

Legendary Affixes

Legendary Affix

As per my experience, Legendary affixes are 2 to 3 times faster than the regular ones, so you should get them as soon as possible in Diablo 4.

In the early phases, you can get the regular ones, but they won’t help you in the future. Some legendary items can be dropped, and some can be included in the Codex of Power. So, you can choose between them based on your preference.

The following are the best ones for each class, according to my experience in Diablo 4:
