How to Get Aspects in Diablo 4
You can get Legendary Aspects either by completing your Codex of Power or by dropping items with them from enemies you kill! The Codex of Power is a great tool that allows you to collect Aspects by clearing Dungeons for the first time or by progressing the main Campaign.
Every Dungeon in the game rewards you with a specific Aspect when you clear it for the first time. This Aspect is then unlocked in the Codex of Power and is account wide. You can use it with any of your characters. The same applies to Aspects you get by completing Main Story Quests!
Not all Aspects are available like this though. Another way to get Aspects is by being lucky and dropping items with Aspects on them from enemies around Sanctuary! Several Aspects you get this way are not included in the Codex of Power! Another main difference between the two types of Aspects, is that when you imprint Aspects from the Codex of Power onto your gear, you will always get the lowest possible roll!
That does not mean that Codex Aspects are useless though. Unlocking Aspects from the Codex is a fast and reliable way to get the effect you are after.
Aspects Types in Diablo 4

How to Imprint an Aspect in Diablo 4
Once you have unlocked your desired Aspect, you can seek the help of the Occultist in order to imprint it! You can imprint Aspects to Rare and Legendary items. You can pick an Aspect from your Codex of Power, then the item you wish to imprint it onto. If the item is of Rare quality, the Aspect will upgrade it to Legendary. Preview your new item and proceed if you are happy with the result. Remember that Aspects from Codex of Power will always give you the lowest possible roll.
Another way is to extract a Legendary Aspect from an item you have dropped, then imprint it onto another item! Like this you can get a much stronger Aspect and imprint it on a different type of item. Extracting the Aspect will however destroy the item it came with. When you extract an Aspect like this, it will be stored in your Aspect inventory tab, so you can use it later.
Aspects in Diablo 4 offer powerful new effects for your Skills and can strengthen your characters! Imprinting them onto your gear should be a top priority!
