Every element plays a significant role in enhancing a player’s gaming experience. This is especially true for role-playing games (RPG) like “Diablo 4.” Its realistic gameplay and riveting storyline keep players captivated and excited about the game’s next act.
“Diablo 4” also provides countless ways for you to personalize your character. The Wings of the Creator emote is one of the game’s unique features that players are rushing to obtain. The emote provides a cosmetic effect that helps players to get angel-like wings and fly temporarily.
Read on to learn how to use wings in Diablo 4, why you should get them, and how to get them.
Using the Wings of the Creator Emote
Before learning how to use the wings, you’ll first have to know how to activate them. Unfortunately, even though there are several guides on how to get this spectacular feature, less emphasis has been placed on how to use it. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to activate and use the wings:
- Launch your “Action Wheel” by hitting the “E” key if using a PC or the “Up” button for PlayStation and Xbox controllers and choose “Customize” to set the actions you want to use.
- Find the “Emotes” option. A list of emotes will be displayed.
- Scroll down and select “Wings of the Creator Emote.”
- Drag and drop it into an open slot on your “Action Wheel.”
- Click on “Save Changes.”
Now that you’ve customized the Emote wheel and added the Wings of the Creator emote, you can go ahead and equip them.
- Press the “E” or “Up” key to open the emote wheel.
- Cycle left using the mouse to view emotes.
- Click on the ‘Wings of the Creator” emote.
- Enjoy the cosmetic feature.
Players can confirm which keys are bound to the Action Wheel by opening the “Options” menu and selecting controls. You can also bind the wheel to your preferred key using the keyboard. Once you’ve opened the Action Wheel and chosen the Wings of the Creator emote, your character will display a quick animation of the emote function or access the menu and equip the emote.
Be aware that the Wings of the Creator emote doesn’t appear on the Action Wheel by default, so you must use the customization prompt to locate it. Using the wings is straightforward once you’ve set up the action wheel.
Why Use Wings in Diablo 4
The Wings of the Creator emote plays a significant role in the “Diablo” lore. They portray power and purity. The celestial beings in “Diablo 4” who possess the wings are tasked with defending the Sanctuary realm from the dark forces that traverse the world of Diablo. Any character that obtains the emote bears a striking semblance with the celestial beings. This is why they are held in high esteem. Inarius, a former archangel of the High Heavens now turned rogue, also bears the wings.
An equally important aspect of “Diablo 4’s” Wings of the Creator emote is communication. Voice communication is the ideal standard when interacting with other players within the game, but this option isn’t always viable. Stopping the game so you can chat with other players can also be challenging.
The wings are also one of the legendary items in the “Diablo 4” series. While it does emanate a radiant spectacle, the emote also helps to showcase your accomplishment in obtaining the game’s Ultimate Edition. After all, not every player will purchase this premium package.
Obtaining Wings of the Creator Emote in Diablo 4
Unfortunately, the methods you can use to get the wings are currently limited. Unlike most RPG games, advancing through the game’s main storyline doesn’t aid you in getting the emote. There is currently only one way to get the Wings of the Creator emote. This involves buying the Ultimate Edition of “Diablo 4,” which is priced just under the $100 mark. Luckily, the Last Edition package includes extra in-game items besides the emote. The additional items include:

- Inarius Murloc Pet
- Amalgam of Rage Mount
- Umber Winged Darkness Cosmetics Set
- Temptation Mount
- Hellborn Carapace Mount Armor
- Premium Seasonal Battle Pass
- 20 Tier Skips
