Essence transfer is one of the many newly introduced mechanics in Diablo Immortal that allows you to utilize your old gear instead of just salvaging it. In this guide, we will cover all there is to know about Essence Transfer in Diablo Immortal including how to unlock the feature and how to inherit power from items.

How to Unlock Essence Transfer

To unlock the ability to essence transfer in Diablo Immortal, you need to have two legendary items of the same type in your inventory.

Then, you need to go to a special vendor, Zamina, located in Westmarch on the opposite side of Rakkis Plaza Waypoint. There Zamina will provide some unique services to you of Extracting and Inheriting Essence.

How to Extract Essence

There is no restriction for extracting the power from a legendary item in Diablo Immortal. Hence, you can do anything you like, but the item will be destroyed after extracting for a bit of gold, 3000 to be exact.

The only restriction you will get is that you can only use extracted essence from the same type of item, but it can be applied multiple times. Items that you already have extracted can be destroyed for glowing shards. You will need lots of them after you reach level 6 with the vendor.

How to Inherit Essence

After you have extracted your legendary item, you will now have the option of inheriting or moving the extracted power to another item of the same type.

Zamina will give you the option to inherit power from items. When you inherit an item from the other item of the same type, it will take on the extracted item’s name, its appearance, and the legendary attribute.

Don’t worry! Even if you have accidentally inherited the item stats, you can always revert to its original form at no extra cost. If your item has inherited powers, an orange flame icon will display in the upper right corner.

What is Essence Transfer in Diablo Immortal

Skills can be transferred from one legendary item to another using Essence Transfer. The Diablo Immortal Essence Transfer gameplay mechanic is explained in detail here.

Transfers Legendary Skills

Essence Transfer lets you extract a skill from one legendary item and transfer it to another, changing the name and appearance of the items to which the skill is transferred.

This comes in real handy when you have a skill in a low-tier legendary item and want it to transfer to a high-tier legendary item.

Re-Apply Legendary Perks

The Essence Transfer mechanic allows you to re-apply an old legendary item skill to a more powerful legendary item having improved stats. This is especially useful in the early stages of the game when legendary items are scarce.

Tweak Name and Appearance

The Essence Transfer not only adds a new skill to the legendary item but changes its name and appearance altogether transforming it into another item. Therefore, it’s not merely an appearance change.
