However, the core concern of Diablo 4 gamers revolves around the game’s primary content. Despite several improvements in the game, Uber Uniques continue to remain a heated topic. A particular player voiced their concerns regarding the crafting prerequisites for Uber Unique gear, a sentiment resonated by a vast majority of the game’s community.

The game developers added a crafting mechanism for Uber Unique gear, to mitigate the frustrations related to finding specific items. Yet, in order to craft a single piece of Uber Unique gear, players need to salvage five non-required Uber Unique items.

'I can’t even get one Uber Unique to drop. Let alone five,' a disgruntled player expressed in reaction to the complaint. Various fans of Diablo 4 had also expressed earlier that collecting rare gear in Diablo 4 feels like a full-time job.

At the moment, the most reliable way to gain Uber Uniques is by defeating Duriel, the game’s formidable character. But doing so is a feat of patience. To confront him requires hours of play, and the drop rate for this desired gear is only at a meager 2%.

'Five is too many. I’ll bet they patch it down to three pretty quickly,' commented an optimistic player. The original complainant suggested an alternate solution – to make regular Unique items drop salvage material for crafting Uber Uniques. This was an idea that many found themselves agreeing with.

Most gamers believe this crafting feature is just a sign of a broader issue with itemization, a problem players have been struggling with since Diablo 4's launch.

Luckily, Blizzard has taken note of the issue and proclaimed their plans to rectify the game’s itemization in the upcoming Diablo 4 Season 4.
