Are there any other uses for unique items other than transmuting them?



  • Ever since I discovered that you can transmute multiple unique items into a single unique item, I've been hoarding uniques. However, I've since come to the conclusion that transmuting uniques is a waste of time because my transmutes always result in an item that 1) isn't better than anything I already have or 2) can't be used by my character class. Therefore, I've decided that selling my lot of uniques is the best bet. Before I do that, though, I am wondering if they possibly serve any other purpose.



  • Short answer to this is : No, there is no real reason to hoard uniques.

    The explaination being that, transmuting uniques usually just grants you a unique around the same level as the uniques you transmuted. Considering the fact that by the time you collect enough uniques of a certain level for transmuting your character would have levelled past it, and you will always end up with a unique that is slightly behind your level. There may be exceptions to this and you might get a useful item every now and then.(I lucked out once or twice and I have done this over a hundred times!!) But the thing still remains that hoarding in TL2 is discouraged unlike its predecessor. Gem combining and other mechanics that promote hoarding have been removed.

    I usually just transmute them if I have enough in my inventory, just to see if I have any luck, but long term hoarding and item farming based around transmuting is just not worth the time , effort, or inventory/stash slots.
