The Diablo 4 beta is in full swing, and players are getting their first taste of the latest title in the series created by Blizzard. In typical Diablo fashion, fans will discover that their inventory gets full of unwanted loot while exploring the deep dungeons and cellars of Sanctuary. Much of this loot says that it will unlock a new look or give crafting materials when salvaged. The option to salvage items is not given when directly interacting with the item, however, so many players are wondering just how to do it. Let’s break down how to salvage in Diablo 4.

In order to salvage your gear, you need to find the Blacksmith indicated on the map via an anvil. This NPC is the only way to break down useless gear into crafting materials while also unlocking it as a cosmetic option for future use.
