In Diablo Immortal, "upgrading" an item is to add a rank to it, which increases the item's stats. Upgrading your items is important as it helps your character become strong enough to take on higher-level missions.

To upgrade your gear in Diablo Immortal, you'll need to visit the Blacksmith, who is located in Westmarch.

From there, you can speak directly to the Blacksmith, where you can trade in Gold and the needed materials for an upgraded item. You can only upgrade Rare, Legendary, and Set items, as well as the materials needed for each item, depending on its current Rank.

Rare items cannot reach higher than Rank 5, Set items cannot reach higher than Rank 10, and Legendary items have a Rank cap of 20.

How much does it cost to upgrade your gear in Diablo Immortal?

Upgrading items in Diablo Immortal isn't free, so make sure you come to Westmarch prepared with what you'll need.

You'll need to bring a fairly large sum of Gold - though each item's upgrade cost differs - as well as any materials that are needed for the item you'd like to upgrade.

To gain materials to upgrade your gear, you'll need to Salvage frequently. You can Salvage at the Blacksmith in Westmarch, the same place where you go to upgrade your items.

By Salvaging, you can break down your existing gear to reuse the materials for better gear. It's worth Salvaging pretty often as you play since it will almost always put you in a position to get a better item.

The following chart, courtesy of maxroll.gg, provides information about which materials can be Salvaged from each type of item:

Common Item 1x Scrap Material
Magic Item  3x Scrap Material
Rare Item 1x Enchanted Dust
Legendary Item 1x Glowing Shard
Set Item  1x Glowing Shard
