How To Gear Efficiently In Endgame Of Diablo 4 Season 4 Loot Reborn?

As the Season 4 of Diablo 4 has recently launched, after reaching Level 100, conquering the Pit, and vanquishing all the bosses, I felt compelled to create an extensive endgame guide of gearing. This guide has got you covered with all the essential information and strategies to elevate your gameplay to the next level. Let's get started!

Get Max Level Gear

The first step is getting full 925 gear. Your first goal of endgame should be to get a full set of 925, that's max level gear in every single slot. Because the highest level 925 gear is always slightly better than anything below it.

So here's a couple of good ways to try and farm out a full set of 925 gear:

Nightmare Dungeons

First, the Nightmare Dungeons. The higher level of mobs, the higher level of the gear that drops. So once you can start fighting around Level 95 mobs, you will almost guarantee they'll be dropping 925 gear. Try to push into higher and higher Nightmare Dungeons.

Even if you are not Level 100, Tier 41 Nightmare Dungeons will have monsters at Level 95. So that's a good place to try and get into and farm, even if you can't beat the boss at the end. Just try and craft a Nightmare Sigil for a Level 41 dungeon, get in, and just farm some Elites, and they'll start dropping 95 gear.

Helltides Events

The next way is the Helltides. You can get a ton of gear from Helltides, as you probably already know. But you can also push the level of the mobs in the Helltides higher with the new Diablo 4 Item - Profane Mindcage, same as with Nightmare Dungeons.

So, that's a good way to boost the level of the mobs but also boost the level of the drops, meaning you'll get much more 925 drops. And these Profane Mindcages come from the Iron Wolves questline. They drop in the Helltides, so there's some good ways to get the gear early as well.

World Boss

As for the World Boss, which is also a good way to get some 925 gear. Then once you hit Level 100, everything drops 95 gear. So just keep farming and try to get the Greater Affix rolls, use your Murmuring Obols at the Purveyors of Curiosity, try to get some even better gear, but the base 925 gear with good stats will take you a very long way.


Once you've got 925 gear, the next significant leap in power comes from tempering your gear. Tempering is a new system introduced in Season 4, allowing you to add new affixes of your choice to your gear as you progress. Little scrolls will drop as you play, and clicking on them will grant you new tempering recipes. Head to the Blacksmith, click on the Tempering icon, and begin tempering your gear.

The beauty of Ancestral World Tier 4 gear is that you can apply 2 tempers to each item, making tempering a substantial boost to your build. You have the flexibility to enhance various aspects, such as DoT, vulnerability and even increase the levels of your abilities for more skill points. This translates to significant power-ups for your character.

However, there's a risk involved as tempering can fail, and each item can only be tempered a certain number of times. Therefore, it's advisable to start tempering your items early, familiarize yourself with the system, and gradually make them more potent. It's relatively inexpensive and doesn't require many materials, so tempering everything is recommended. If you happen to replace an item, you can always re-temper it.

Once you've tempered your entire gear set, you'll notice a considerable boost in damage and effectiveness, aiding you in endeavors like tackling Nightmare Dungeons, mastering the Pit, and further exploring the game's challenges.


Once you have 925 tempered gear, it's time to look at Masterworking. To unlock Masterworking, you have to be at least Level 46 in Nightmare Dungeons. Level 46 Nightmare Dungeons feature monsters of Level 100.

If you don't have a Nightmare Sigil that high, you can visit the Occultist and craft one in the 40 to 50 range. Once you've completed a Level 46 Nightmare Dungeon, you will unlock the Masterworking system at the Blacksmith, as well as the Pit. This is a new repeatable dungeon-type content introduced in Season 4.

The reason you need the Pit is that this is where the materials for Masterworking come from. So, as soon as you've done that, head into the Pit. If you can beat a Level 46 Nightmare Dungeon, you can probably complete the first level of the Pit very easily.

Every time you complete 1 level of the Pit, you can try a few levels higher. Beat the timer within a good range, and you can progress from Level 1 to Level 3 and beyond. The way Masterworking works is that every time you Masterwork a piece of gear, every affix on that piece of gear grows by 5%. It does this 3 times, and then on the fourth upgrade, it will upgrade one affix by 25%.

Your endgame progression will be tied around progressing through the Pit. Once you have a full set of gear that you're happy with, you'd go into the Pit to Level 30. While you're doing this, you should also still be going into Nightmare Dungeons because that is how you upgrade your glyphs.

It's kind of a whole system where you jump between going to the Pit, Masterworking your gear, going to a Nightmare dungeon, and getting your glyphs leveled up. It's a big gameplay loop you'll be doing for a long time.

Diablo 4 Season 4 added lots of new endgame content and ways to progress. So this gearing guide should help learn all the different ways to progress your gear and the best ways to do it. I will be really happy if you find this useful.
