Diablo 4 Abattoir of Zir Overview
Diablo 4's Abattoir of Zir seasonal event just came out and will be relevant up until the release of Season 3. This means that players have time until January 23rd to enjoy it. Before you start conquering this pinnacle dungeon, you might require some serious preparation. This article delves into all we know so far and helps to prepare for the upcoming adventure.
Abattoir of Zir is an endgame pinnacle dungeon event, taking place two months into the Season of Blood and serving as its culmination. It is similar to Greater Rifts in Diablo 3, giving players just 10 minutes to kill enough enemies to fill a progress bar that triggers a boss fight. Players have to defeat the boss before the time runs out. There will be 25 tiers of this dungeon available, as explained below.
Preparation and Requirements
As expected, your character needs to first reach level 100 and complete the Seasonal Journey, to start this adventure. Finish your seasonal journey as quickly as possible so you won't miss out on all the fun that this limited-time event has in store.
Starting the Event
To start the event, players need to craft a Bloodforged Sigil. This can be done by using Sigil Powder at the Occultist. The very same that is usually used to transform a Dungeon into a Nightmare Dungeon. You will need at least 800 powder to craft one Bloodforged Sigil, so stock it up! Using the Bloodforged Sigil will open a blood portal in Ked Bardu, Dry Steppes. In short, you will have to:
- Complete Season Journey to unlock the Bloodforged Sigil crafting recipe.
- Craft the Bloodforged Sigil at the Occultist.
- spawn the "Visceral Channel" in Ked Bardu by using the Bloodforged Sigil.
- Enter the portal to access the Abattoir of Zir pinnacle dungeon event.
As you can see, the process is simple but does require a lot of grind if you still need to complete the Season Journey.
As mentioned, there are 25 tiers for Bloodforged Sigils. Upon completing a dungeon, one of the rewards will be a recipe for the sigil of the next tier. This way, players will have to climb their way up to the final tier 25.
You can skip getting recipes if you play with friends who have already unlocked more tiers than you.
Diablo 4 introduces the 'Tears of Blood' Unique Glyph as another prize upon completing the dungeon, which will only work in Season 2. It increases the radius size to 4. For every 5 Core Stats purchased within range, you gain 2.0% damage and grant a +50% bonus to all Rare Nodes within range (this bonus is increased by 10% every 10 levels). This Glyph can be leveled to level 200 and it provides a massive increase in overall damage done. BLOG15
Another thing to note is the fact that clearing this dungeon provides roughly triple the amount of Paragon Experience of other dungeons, despite not being much harder at all. Aside from the unique glyph and the recipes, monsters will drop gold, weapons, armor, and crafting materials.
There are three main types of enemies in the Abattoir of Zir event, those being Vampires, Ghosts, and Spiders. Melee builds need to be especially careful around spiders, since they will present the biggest threat with stacking poison. The final encounter of this event is three Blood Seekers who have unique abilities to watch out for, as well as buffs and enhancements.
Diablo 4's The Abattoir of Zir event will be available up until season 3, so players need to prepare and clear it before it ends. Reach level 100 and finish your Seasonal Journey if you still need to. The dungeon will have 25 tiers, unlocking with Bloodforged Sigils, recipes for which will be dropped as rewards for finishing the previous dungeon. Other amazing rewards such as the Tears of Blood Unique Glyph, armor, and weapons await players!
