How to Extract Imprinted Aspects in Diablo 4?

Extracting Aspects - Diablo 4

There are many reasons why you would want to extract an aspect from a piece of equipment. As you continue playing Diablo 4 you will receive a host of different equipment, and some of it will carry unique and powerful Aspects. You will want to keep some of them, and extracting these Aspects will be important.

Another factor that is important to consider is that sometimes you will Imprint a powerful Aspect into a piece of gear that you will want to retrieve later.

You’ll want to do this because you’ll find other better gear later on. So Diablo 4 allows you to extract these Aspects from your gear to use later.


By going to the Occultist in any major town you will be able to use the Codex of Power and extract imprinted Aspects in Diablo 4. This will vastly improve your overall customizability, and give you more options when considering your build in Diablo 4.

Imprint Aspects - Diablo 4

If this was Diablo 2, then the process of extracting imprinted Aspects would be incredibly convoluted. But in Diablo 4, this process is very simple, and if you’re looking to extract an Imprinted Aspect then it can be completed in less than 2 minutes.

To Extract Aspects, the first thing you will need is either Legendary gear or gear that you Imprinted an Aspect into. You will also need around 5,000 gold pieces. Both of these things will be a prerequisite to extracting Imprinted Aspects from your gear.


Now that you have the necessary items, move over to the Occultist in any major city. Navigate through the Occultist’s menu and reach the Extract section and then follow these steps:

  • Place the Legendary Gear into the Top Box.
  • Now Select Extract Aspect
  • The Aspect will appear in your inventory.
  • Extracting Aspects from your gear piece will destroy the actual piece of gear.

Since the piece of gear you will be extracting an aspect from will be lost, it’s important to carefully consider which legendary piece you’re ready to part with and which you will like to keep.

Another thing to remember is that Aspects stored in the Codex of Power will always be their lowest possible percentage.
