Diablo Immortal Skill Stones can be a bit confusing for new and returning players to this classic Blizzard franchise.
Diablo Immortal has both introduced several new concepts and reintroduced old ones with new names. For example, Elder Rifts are functionally just Nephalem Rifts under a different term. Some of these hide more complicated mechanics that are necessary to unlock specific, important items — like Skill Stones, which are essentially hidden behind Charms.
What are Diablo Immortal Skill Stones?
Skill Stones are items that allow players to ascribe a different effect to an existing Charm or transfer effects between them. In order to get a Skill Stone, however, one must alter a Charm to transform it into one.
Charms can be obtained by completing in-game bounties, purchasing them for 100 Hilts each, or earning them by progressing through the Battle Pass. A Skill Stone cannot be made without a Charm, so it's vital that players collect the charms they need and transmute the ones they don't. Like any work done with Charms, this can be performed by visiting the Charm Craftsman.
To transform a Charm into a Skill Stone, players will need to get the Charm Craftsman to Extract it for 500 Platinum.
How to Use Diablo Immortal Skill Stones
Once players have a Skill Stone, they can use it to Imbue another Charm with different effects. The act of replacing the effect is mostly by chance and can be left up to luck — meaning players do run the risk of having spent a lot of effort only to produce the same result. Again, this can be done by visiting the Charm Craftsman.
Before you go through all the time, effort, and money to replace a Charm, we recommend checking out our dive into the question of whether or not Diablo Immortal is "pay to win." More information about the inner workings of Diablo Immortal, such as its special currency, can be found on our website.
