How to equip cosmetics in Diablo 4

When it comes to cosmetics for your DIablo 4 character, every different look you've unlocked can be found in your wardrobe. Wardrobes are located across major settlements on the world map, and you can identify them by their unique symbol on your minimap. As a rule of thumb, you'll also find yoru strash chest next to a wardrobe.

Once you make it to the wardrobe, you'll find each unlocked look for your weapons and armour laid out in a specific tab dedicated to each piece of equipment you can use. Here you can also save outfits, which will let you change between your favourite looks quickly.

That's all well and good if you've already unlocked the cosmetic you're looking for, but how do you go about unlocking new cosmetics? The most common process will be through salvaging gear at the blocksmith. If yous ee a hammer symbol next to a piece of gear, that's your sign that salvaging that item will provide a new appearance at the wardrobe. Note that you only have to do this once per unique cosmetic, so sooner or later you'll run out of salvagable appearances.

As you proceed through the game, more and more of this should get unlocked.

For rewards that you get from challenges, you'll first get an item in your inventory. As such, you must use them before the cosmetic becomes unlocked in your wardrobe.

Then there are the paid cosmetics. If you buy something from the Diablo 4 shop, it'll be automatically unlocked so you should be able to take a quick trip to the wardrobe and just slap it on hassle free.

Cosmetics for your mount works al ittle different than your average cosmetic! Instead of heading to your wardrobe, you'll want to rush to your nearest stable. Stables, like wardrobes, have unique symbols on the map that you should look out for to quickly identify them, and can be found in all major settlements.

Cosmetics for your mount are far simpler than weapon and armour cosmetics. You can't salvage any mount cosmetics, they are either bought with gold and other in-game currency, rewards that you must activate in your inventory, or paid cosmetics that'll go straight to your collection.

You should be able to quickly identify the earnt cosmetics vs paid ones thanks to the rectangular symbol beneath the DLC options.
