How to enter Abattoir of Zir in Diablo 4

To enter the Abattoir of Zir in Diablo 4, head over to Ked Bardu where the main entrance will be located, after completing your seasonal journey. Just like Nightmare Sigils, you will have to craft Bloodforged Sigils this time to progress through each tier of the event.

There are 25 tiers in Abattoir of Zir, and the difficulty will increase as you progress through each tier. You will have to defeat all the monsters within the time limit to complete one tier.

Abattoir of Zir rewards in Diablo 4

You can expect the Abattoir of Zir rewards to be identical to the Nightmare Dungeons’ loot in Diablo 4. Alongside that, you will also get access to a unique Paragon Glyph called Tears of Blood after completing your first abattoir.

This glyph can be leveled up all the way up to Level 210 and can prove to be a great addition in most builds in Diablo 4. However, it will require much more XP to upgrade than normal Paragon Glyphs. With the Abattoir of Zir being on par with Tier 100 Nightmare Dungeons when it comes to difficulty, you will be able to farm glyph XP too as you progress through it.
