Can Alt Characters Use Aspects in Diablo 4?

Aspects are Legendary powers that you manually add to non-Legendary gear. Each Aspect modifies existing abilities or provides a powerful buff. These effects unlock for your character when you reach level 25 and obtain the Codex of Power, which is earned by completing dungeons.

The best thing, however, is that by adding Aspects to your Codex of Power they become available for all of your characters to use.

It doesn’t matter then which class obtains the Aspect, since you can always share that particular Aspect with another character.


You can also extract power from Legendary items that are dropped by bosses or chests. You can do this extraction at the Occultist, which can be found at any of the major towns in the game.

Extracting will destroy that particular piece of gear though, so make sure that piece isn’t one that you will need later.

There are several Aspects in Diablo 4 that can jump-start a new character. We won’t spoil that process of discovery for you here. But you can add these Legendary powers to items found while playing another class to gain a massive headstart. Just the way we like it.
