What Diablo 4 items can be traded?
Blizzard made the following Diablo 4 items tradable:
Whereas these items cannot be traded (i.e., account-bound):
- Cosmetic items
- Legendary items
- Unique items
- Legendary Aspects
- Items imprinted with Legendary Aspects by the Occultist
- Items enchanted (i.e., affix replacement) by the Occultist
- Crafting Materials
- Murmuring Obols
- Red Dust
- Seeds of Hatred
- Platinum Premium Currency
Can Legendary items be traded?
Despite outcries from some players, Blizzard decided before Diablo 4's launch that Legendary and Unique items were too powerful and can't be traded. This makes Rare items with desirable affixes and good rolls the most valuable tradable items in the game. Once traded, these can be upgraded to Legendaries by imprinting them with an Aspect.
Blizzard's philosophy on trading in Diablo 4TOP
How to initiate a trade
To start trading with another player, right-click their character, and select "Invite to Trade."
This will send a timed, 20 second trade invitation that the other player can accept or decline.
If the other player accepts, both players's characters will show handshake icons above their heads.
Also, the trading menu will appear on the left side of the screen. Each player can select up to 12 items to offer the other player. The items must be in the players' inventories (i.e., not Stash). An amount of Gold can separately be added to sweeten the deal.
After both sides have chosen what to offer, they then have to click the "Accept Trade" button.
The "Offer Locked In" messages under each player's name will change to the green-colored "Trade Accepted," and the player will receive a message prompt informing them that their items are now in their inventory.TOP
Possible future trading features
Clan Bank trading feature?
Up until 2021, Blizzard made multiple mentions of a Clan Bank feature , which allowed clanmates to easily pass items between each other (and collectively store gold?). Since then, there's been radio silence about the feature, and it didn't appear in the Open Beta. Perhaps it'll be in for launch, a Season, or expansion.
Auction House trading feature?
No. Realizing from past experience that an Auction House doesn't mesh well with the Diablo series' gameplay, Blizzard won't be including the feature in Diablo 4.TOP
