Codex of Power

The Codex of Power is a powerful tool in Diablo 4 that allows you to collect Legendary Aspects. You can later imprint those Aspects onto your gear, with the help of the Occultist, in order to boost your capabilities and unlock new effects for your skills! You can imprint the Aspects you collect in the Codex of Power onto Rare or Legendary items only. The Codex of Power contains only some of the available Aspects in the game. You will have to loot the others from enemies.

Codex of Power Aspects Types and Gear

The Aspects you can collect in the codex belong to five different types. These are:

  • Defensive
  • Offensive
  • Resource
  • Utility
  • Mobility

Every type offers Class specific Aspects, as well as Aspects that every Diablo 4 Class can use. Each Aspect type can only be imprinted onto a specific piece of gear.

  • Defensive Aspects to Helmet, Chest, Pants, Amulet and Shields.
  • Offensive Aspects to Weapons, Gloves, Amulet.
  • Resource Aspects to Rings.
  • Utility Aspects to Helmet, Chest, Gloves, Boots, Amulet, Shields.
  • Mobility Aspects to Boots, Amulet.

Imprinting Aspects from the Codex has the drawback of always giving you the lowest possible roll of an Aspect. But it is a reliable way to gain the effect you are after!
