What is Diablo 4 Legendary Aspects
Legendary Aspects in Diablo 4 are unique account-wide modifiers that can transform Rare items into Legendary ones. When you obtain a Legendary item from a drop, it will already have a Legendary Aspect assigned to it based on the gear slot type.
In addition to finding Aspects on loot drops, you can unlock them by completing specific Dungeons in the game. These Aspects are recorded in the Codex of Power and provide a baseline of bonuses to improve your character until you find better gear drops. However, when imprinted at the Occultist, they always roll the lowest possible value. So, even if you have unlocked an Aspect, you will still want to keep looking for better versions on gear drops to replace lower rolls. It's also possible to find Aspects that are very powerful but may not be suited to your character's build due to the gear slot it's on. In this case, you can extract the Legendary Aspect from the item, but it comes at a high Gold cost and destroys the original gear piece. However, the extracted Legendary Aspect can then be imprinted onto a gear slot that is better suited to your character's needs.
If you come across a Legendary Aspect on gear that doesn't fit your build, don't despair! You can extract it at The Occultist for a significant Gold fee. Once extracted, the Aspect is stored in your Aspect Inventory tab, ready for use on a different piece of gear. You can even transfer the Aspect to your Stash if your Aspect Inventory is full. Extracted Aspects contain information about which item types they can be imprinted on and any bonuses they provide when imprinted on specific pieces. This is a great way to repurpose powerful Aspects that would otherwise go to waste on gear you don't use.

Diablo 4 Legendary Aspect Types
Legendary Aspects are powerful modifications that can only be imprinted on specific slots of rare or legendary items. They are categorized into Offensive, Defensive, Resource, Utility, and Mobility. Each category can only be imprinted on specific gear slots, so you need to carefully consider which aspects to imprint on which item. Aspects could be class-specific and generic that are available to any class in Diablo 4.
||Gloves and Weapon with a 100% effectiveness bonus; Amulets and Ring with a 50% effectiveness bonus
||Shield, Helm, Chest, Pants, Amulet with a 50% effectiveness bonus
||Shield, Helm, Chest, Amulet, Gloves, Boots with a 50% effectiveness bonus
||Amulet, Boots with a 50% effectiveness bonus
It's important to note that the Codex permanently imprints the minimum value and does not display the maximum possible for an Aspect. While we confirmed some values from drops that show the ranges, most are still unknown. Certain flat value powers can also scale with character level or item power. By strategically imprinting Legendary Aspects on your gear, you can enhance your character's build and gain a significant advantage in combat.
Can I equip an item with Diablo 4 Legendary Aspect that belongs to another class?
Yes, you can, but doing so will render the Legendary Aspect unusable in that character since you can't receive the specifics bonuses. For example, a Rogue can decide to imprint Aspect of Ancestral Force into a Bow and can still equip it. However, the bonus of Aspect of Ancestral Force, which makes Hammer of the Ancients quake outwards, dealing a percentage of its damage to enemies, will be useless since Rogues don't have that Skill.
