What do Diablo 4 Ears do?
Ears are items looted from the corpses of slain PvP opponents . They do nothing, other than remind a player of past opponents killed, and can be kept in the Stash, discarded, or sold for 1 Gold.
What's the Ear drop rate?
Ears don't drop after every kill. While stats are still firming up, Ear drop rates are thought to be about 30%. There's been one report of a player looting 2 Ears from 1 player. When Ears drop, their item text is in red and will appear beside the slain player's headstone and Seeds of Hatred.
Can you display Ears as trophies?
Ears on Killer's Leggings PvP Cosmetic
There exists a PvP Cosmetic reward, called Killer's Leggings, that can be purchased from the Odds and Ends Vendor in Alzuuda and Denshare (i.e., the PvP towns). It costs 75,000 Red Dust and is one piece of the larger Killer's set.
When equipped on a Rogue (and only the Rogue), the Killer's Leggings display about a dozen Ears on the legging's sash. These Ears aren't tied to the actual looted Ears a player has collected and are default to the item's look. Still, this is the only example of Ears being shown to other players.
Ears featured in the Rogue's Introduction Trailer
In Diablo 4, Ears are most associated with the Rogue Class (all Classes can loot them, though) and were featured heavily in the Rogue Introduction Trailer . In the video, the Rogue is seen giving a corrupt priest Ears from bounty targets she slayed.
At the end of the video, the priests opens up a cabinet, filled with dozens of Ears on hooks.
PvP Ears in past Diablo games
Slicing off a defeated opponent's Ear in PvP has been a tradition in the Diablo series dating back to the original's release in 1996. Ears were featured in Diablo 1 and Diablo 2. In these earlier games, victorious players got Ears after each kill, and Ears could be sold for 1 Gold a piece.TOP
