Best ways to make money in Diablo 4

Diablo 4 may be focused primarily on slaying hoards of demons to earn yourself copious amounts of loot, but making the most of all of that gear means applying plenty of upgrades and Aspects to ensure you’re in tip-top shape for upcoming fights. You won’t be able to do any of that, though, if you haven’t accrued a hefty sum of gold in the game, as all of that improvement comes at a fairly significant price, especially as you delve into Diablo 4‘s demanding endgame experience. Here are a few tips for making money to help you afford everything you need to do.

Best ways to make money in Diablo 4

Simply wandering around the massive open world and destroying groups of foes will earn you a decent income, but you’ll have to put some additional effort in if you want to maximize your currency gain. Try these methods.

Sell unwanted gear

The most consistent method of making money in Diablo 4 is to simply sell the gear you discover as you explore the world. Your inventory is likely to be overflowing with unneeded weapons and armor within just a few hours of playtime – and that will continue throughout the entirety of your time in the game. Head to any merchant that buys things and sell them everything you don’t care to keep and watch as your coffers fill up.

Complete world events

As you wander around the open world and dungeons in Diablo 4, you’ll frequently come across world events, which task you and any other local players with completing a brief enemy encounter to earn a loot chest. If you overcome these challenges, you’ll not only get a nice chunk of gold for your efforts, but you’ll likely end up with some gear you can sell for even more money. Even more, if you manage to complete the event’s mastery challenge, which requires you to meet certain goals during the encounter, you’ll get even better rewards, so always be sure to put in the extra effort required to achieve this.

Grind dungeons

The core gameplay loop of Diablo 4 is grinding enemies and improving your build, and that carries over into the world of money-making, too. Dungeons litter the entirety of the game’s map, and you’ll need to run them anyways to build up your arsenal of Aspects and to complete the game’s myriad side quests, so you might as well get used to this method. As with the rest of the game, it’s an opportunity to earn an abundance of gear that you can then easily sell at a merchant back in town for big bucks.

Never pass up a loot goblin

As you explore Diablo 4‘s expansive map, you’re definitely going to come across loot goblins, which can be identified by the massive treasure bag they carry around on their backs and their penchant for running away from you rather rapidly. If your build grants you any options for immobilizing enemies, definitely make use of that and then pummel the loot goblin with your strongest abilities. They’ll drop an abundance of gold and more gear that, as you can probably guess by now, can be sold back in town.

After an uneven console cycle with the Xbox One, Microsoft's latest consoles are aimed at getting the ship back on course. The Xbox Series X is a next-generation powerhouse that rivals gaming PCs, while the Xbox Series S is an affordable stopgap for those who are curious about trying new games.

There's no shortage of games to play on either console thanks to Xbox Game Pass, which gives players immediate access to a library of titles old and new. That built-in catalog is an extra value on top of all the new games available on the system that take advantage of its impressive technical specs. When it comes to first-party exclusives, the Series X is still growing. Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 gave a good boost to the console's library following a somewhat sparse first year. More games are also on the way. Microsoft's Bethesda acquisition will bring exclusives like Starfield and the potential addition of all Activision Blizzard games would further bolster that list, but the console's real strength lies in third-party support.

A wall of shields

As you progress through Resident Evil 4's Separate Ways DLC, you'll eventually need to help Luis score some ingredients for a fresh batch of medicine to aid in fending off the infection ailing both Leon and Ada. As you begin your quest to find the ingredients, you'll first have to solve a lithograph puzzle to open a door leading into a room filled with shields on the wall. In this room, you'll have to shoot specific shields in a specific order to open a cabinet revealing your first ingredient: red ink. Here's how to solve the shield wall puzzle.

After solving the lithograph puzzle and opening the door, you'll enter an area where you can interact with a printing machine to get a piece of paper that hints at interacting with (shooting) the shields hanging all along the walls of the room. The problem is that, well, there are a lot of shields in this room. To find the correct shields, turn around from the printing machine and look at the fireplace along the wall behind you. To the left of this fireplace are the five shields from the picture that you printed.

You need to shoot three of these shields in the following order:

A wall with lithographs

Part of the way through Chapter 4 of Resident Evil 4's Separate Ways DLC, you'll find yourself needing to track down some ingredients to make some new medicine. One of the first things you'll encounter while doing so is a wall of lithographs that must be placed in a specific order to open a hidden door leading to a shield wall puzzle, which itself yields one of the necessary ingredients you're seeking. Here's how to solve the lithograph puzzle.

When you first set off to find the ingredients, you'll probably come across the wall with two lithographs set in it alongside two empty slots. This means you'll first need to find the other two stone tablets – both of which are nearby and require minimal effort to round up. One tablet is easily found in the same room as the lithograph puzzle, while the other is on a desk in a room further down the main hallway.

When you've obtained both lithographs, return to the puzzle and place the tablets into the empty slots. Notice next to each slot is a symbol (two of which are partially scrubbed off) that corresponds to one of the symbols on each of the lithographs. In order to solve this puzzle, you'll need to not only match the appropriate symbol, but you'll also need to select and flip the lithographs to the correct colors, too.
