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 in Diablo 4. Regular, Legendary, and Unique are the three tiers. You will have to choose affixes from these tiers, and in this, I will tell you about the Best Diablo 4 Affixes 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. The three tiers are Regular, Legendary, and Unique.
  • 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.
  • Both Legendary and a Unique Item will have one Unique or Legendary Affix; the rest will be normal or of some other class. 
  • Use the regular affixes at the start, but get the Legendary and Unique ones as soon as you progress.

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. Unique affixes are by far the best ones in Diablo 4 and have a star icon like 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. 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.
