As is the norm with most free-to-play games, Diablo Immortal offers a wide range of currencies and crafting materials you can loot as you battle through hordes of monsters and clear out dungeons. While most of these can be earned without spending a cent, there are a few that require the swipe of a card in order to obtain. Every currency and material has specific uses, and this delineation allows you to upgrade your character in different ways to suit your interests. Currencies and crafting materials are deeply tied to your progression. Therefore, it's important to know how many currencies there are, how to obtain them, what their rarity is, and how to use them.
All currencies and what they do in Diablo Immortal
- Gold - This is the most commonly found currency in the game, and can be farmed easily by killing monsters, completing bounties, clearing out dungeons, and completing weekly immortal rewards. Gold can be spent to upgrade your gear at the Blacksmith and to start your own Clan. It can also be traded with Yakin, the Rarities and Antiquities vendor in Rakkis Plaza to purchase weapons and armor.
- Hilts - Hilts are non-farmable items, which means they can only be earned by completing bounties, exploration events, battlegrounds, as well as weekly immortal rewards. You can only spend Hilts at one place, and that is with Lieutenant Fizriah, the Hilts merchant at Rakkis Plaza. You can buy items in exchange for Hilts, such as Crests, Gems, and Reforge Stones.
- Platinum - Platinum is a semi-premium currency in Diablo Immortal. It is a non-farmable item, and owing to its scarcity, players should be careful where they spend it on. It can be acquired by completing Daily Quests, by selling unwanted items to Dya in the Marketplace in Westmarch, or by purchasing them with Eternal Orbs. Platinum can be used to purchase and craft Legendary Crests, to buy Echo Crystals, and to obtain items from the Marketplace.
- Eternal Orbs - This is the most premium currency in the game and can only be purchased with real money. It can be spent to buy a number of items, like Legendary Crests, Reforge Stones, Platinum, and Dawning Echo.
All crafting materials and what they do in Diablo Immortal
- Scrap Material - The material you get after salvaging unwanted equipment. You can also obtain Scrap Material by buying them from the Hilts trader, completing Daily Rewards, and completing Event Rewards. It is used as a currency to upgrade your gear at the Blacksmith.
- Enchanted Dust - Enchanted Dust is similar Scrap Materials, albeit a little harder to come by. You can obtain this material by salvaging rare items or by completing Daily Rewards, Event Rewards, or purchase them from the Hilts trader or the Smithing Materials vendor. It is used to upgrade your gear at the Blacksmith.
- Glowing Shard - Another item used for upgrading your gear at the Blacksmith. In order to obtain Glowing Shards, you need to salvage Legendary items. You can also get Glowing Shards from the Daily Rewards chest.
- Enigmatic Crystal - Enigmatic Crystals are used to upgrade your secondary slot items. They are harder to come by than Scrap Material, Enchanted Dust, and Glowing Shard, as they can only be obtained by completing Challenge Rifts for the first time or ranking in the top ten for Group Challenge Rifts. You can also purchase them from the Smithing Materials vendor.
- Reforge Stone - Reforge Stones are items used to change any one of the bonus attributes that are unlocked when your item is Rank 6 or more. They can be purchased from the Hilts trader in Rakkis Plaza or obtained in exchange for Eternal Orbs from the Smithing Materials vendor. You will also earn some Reforge Stones by progressing your Battle Pass.
- Echo Crystal - This item is required for upgrading Gems above Rank 5. It can be purchased from the Crystal Merchant in Rakkis Plaza in exchange for Platinum.
- Gem Fragment - A key component required to upgrade the rank of Legendary Gems, obtained by dismantling spare Legendary Gems at the Apprentice Jeweler.
- Crests - Perhaps the most important material in the game, Crests are modifiers that can be placed in the Elder Rift to guarantee valuable rewards. There are two types of Crests—Rare Crests and Legendary Crests. Rare Crests can be obtained from the Hilts trader, the Battle Pass, and by visiting the Elder Rift. Legendary Crests can be obtained by purchasing them from the in-game shop using Eternal Orbs or by visiting the Hilts trader.
- Fading Ember - This is a byproduct of using Crests in the Elder Rift. Every Rare Crest will grant one Fading Ember, while every Legendary Crest will grant five. The Fading Ember can be used at the Fading Embers and Runes vendor to purchase Runes.
- Aspirant's Key - Used to open chests inside Iben Fahd's Sanctum. It can be acquired by progressing the Empowered Battle Pass or purchased from the Hilts trader.
- Scoria - This item is required to upgrade the Helliquary and unlock bosses. Once you have Scoria, you need to take it to a Blacksmith to turn it into Hellfire Scoria. Scoria can be obtained from the Empowered Battle Pass, Helliquary Raid Rewards, and Daily Activity Rewards.
- Runes - Runes are used mainly for crafting Legendary Gems. You can obtain Runes from completing Elder Rifts, the Fading Embers and Runes vendor, and the Marketplace.
- Raw Essentia - It is used for progressing the Immortals faction questline. It can be acquired from the Immortals Quests or from the Hilts trader.
- Essentia - As a member of the Immortals, you will gain access to Kion's Ordeal to obtain rewards in exchange for Essentia. You receive Essentia by contributing to the Immortals and raiding vaults.
- Dawning Echo - This is one and only item required to awaken your Legendary equipment. Once the Legendary Gem attached to your equipment hits level 10, you can use Dawning Echo to awaken the gear and gain a huge boost. You can purchase Dawning Echo from the in-game shop, under the Materials tab.
