Upgrading your gear is the best way to progress your character in Diablo 4. Unique and Uber Unique items are usually strong, rare pieces of gear, but these items can be incredibly hard to find.
Like Legendary armor and weapons, Unique items have a very low drop rate that make these items nearly impossible to farm. Unique pieces of gear usually have a special effect aside from normal stats which can change your playstyle. If you are trying to find a Unique for your class, here’s what you need to know.
Diablo 4 Unique Drops Rates, Explained
Most Unique and Uber Unique items in Diablo 4 have a less than one-percent drop rate. These items can also drop from almost any source as well, including random enemies, bosses, chests, and world events. This makes Uniques incredibly difficult to farm considering that most of your chances to find a Unique item comes down to luck.
There are several bosses in Diablo 4 that drop specific Unique items. Lord Zir, a boss in the Season of Blood quest chain, can drop many of the new Uniques released with the second season. Though landing a Unique item is among the rarest occurrences in the game, there are tactics that you can employ to make your hunt easier.
How to get Unique drops in Diablo 4
The best way to get Unique items in Diablo 4 is to take on world events and high-level dungeons. Usually world events, World Bosses, and dungeons have high concentrations of enemies, bosses, and chests. Given the incredibly low drop rate for the overwhelming number of Unique items, being around the most possible loot sources can greatly increase your chances of finding you desired item.
I highly recommend completing Helltide events whenever they pop up. These are world events that take over entire sections of the map and load these areas with exclusive chests and bosses for you to take down. World Bosses, Nightmare Dungeons, and Season exclusive events such as Blood Harvests are also great ways to search for rare, Legendary, and Unique loot.
