Adding new and better items to your character's item slots in Diablo 4 is of the utmost importance. The iconic ARPG franchise from Blizzard is, of course, all about the shiny new loot. Therefore, if you are wondering what Diablo 4 Item Slot Types there are, we've got you covered.
Through your journey in Sanctuary, you will find items of different quality/rarities and even super rare Uniques. These will go into the corresponding item slot types of your character. Let's dive into the details of those types now.
Update on 24 March 2023: We've updated this article with Diablo 4 Item Slot type information to digest.
Learn about the Diablo 4 Open Beta update and the issues/troubles players can expect when it kicks off on 24 March at 09:00 PST.
Please note: The Diablo 4 item slot types information in this article is from Open Beta weekends and is subject to change at launch. As such, we will consistently update this article to bring you the latest possible information.
Diablo 4 Item Slot Types For Your Character
We are just going to cut to the chase right now; it is true that there is no Shoulder item slot in Diablo 4. There are a total of 10 item slot types that each class can use, adding new items to their specific slots as they find them across the world of Sanctuary.
Check out the complete list of Item Slot Types in Diablo 4 for all classes below.
- Head Slot
- Torso Slot
- Hands Slot
- Legs Slot
- Feet Slot
- Neck Slot
- Ring 1 Slot
- Ring 2 Slot
- Main-hand Weapon Slot
- Off-Hand Weapon Slot
While highly unlikely, it is not impossible that Blizzard might add some specific new slots in later Diablo 4 seasons.
Can You Get More Item Slots in Diablo 4?
While many Diablo fans might want a Shoulder item slot, there is no way to increase your character's item slot types in Diablo 4.
Unless, of course, you are playing a Barbarian...
Diablo 4's Barbarian Gets Additional Item Slots
The Barbarian class is all about swinging devasting weapons at your enemies and crushing them under your boots. That's probably why, from a lore perspective, it makes sense that the Barbarian has more item slots.
Specifically, you get 2-Handed Bludgeoning Weapon and 2-Handed Slashing Weapon item slots extra. This is done via the Barbarian's unique mechanic in Diablo 4, the Arsenal system. This also means you can equip two more Legendary Aspects via the Codex of Power than other classes...a bold advantage.
While you wait for Diablo 4 to get unleashed on 6 June 2023 (or 2 June for Early Access) or the Open Beta weekends to fill your inventory with shiny loot, why not learn more about the world of Sanctuary in the video below?
So there you have it, all the item slot types in Diablo 4 to power up your character. We will endeavor to update this article if anything changes.
