Archived info from the system in the game during Diablo 3 vanilla. The initial materials system ran from from launch in May 2012 until Diablo 3 version 2 went live in February 2014, with several minor additions and modifications during that time. The info below is no longer current and many of the materials no longer exist; all the obsolete types of material were transformed into the new materials when D3v2 went live.

There are nine materials in total. Each difficulty level has its own magic material and its own rare material. Inferno alone has a legendary material. An item always yields materials of the difficulty level its item level corresponds to: item levels 1–30 are Normal, 31–50 are Nightmare, 51–59 are Hell, and 60–63 are Inferno.

  • Magic items have a 100% chance to yield a magic material and a 15% chance to also yield a rare material.
  • Rare items have a 100% chance to yield both a magic material and a rare material.
  • Legendary and set items have a 100% chance to yield three rare materials. On Inferno, one of these Iridescent Tears is swapped for a Fiery Brimstone.

Materials cannot be converted or upgraded.
