This article focuses on the Necromancer Essence Transfer in Diablo Immortal. The Essence Transfer Vendor allows players to destroy a legendary gear you no longer need, and extract its essence / power. It is a soft transmog, but the main purpose of this feature is that as you find new legendary gear with higher stats than yours, you can keep the stats, and transfer the build powers onto the new item.

This way, effectively, you keep the same build across new upgrades you loot in dungeons and in the open world.

Necromancer Essence Transfer

Extract Essence

  • Essence can be extracted from any Legendary item.
  • Extracted Essence can then be transferred onto other Legendary items of the same type.
  • Extracting Essence from a Legendary item will permanently destroy the item, however the extracted Essence can be reapplied to multiple items.

Inherit Essence

  • Items inheriting Essence will adopt the extracted item’s name, appearance, and legendary attributes.
  • Inherited items can be reset to their original state at any time.
