Diablo 4 endgame: What to do after beating the main campaign in Season 2?
Diablo 4 Season of Blood has introduced lots of new events for players who have finished Sanctuary’s main campaign. Here’s everything you can do in the Diablo 4 endgame.
Diablo 4 has a lot more to offer than its main campaign, something that players will discover only after defeating Lilith. Blizzard has planned many challenges that keep the world of Sanctuary alive in the endgame, so Wanderers shouldn’t quit their adventure after uncovering its first secrets.
There’s still so much to do in Diablo 4 in terms of content since Season of Blood has introduced new endgame events, World Bosses, and Unique Items. Here’s everything you can do after beating the main campaign in Diablo 4 Season 2.
- Diablo 4: World Tiers
- Diablo 4: Nightmare Dungeons
- Diablo 4: Paragon Boards
- Diablo 4: Helltides
- Diablo 4: Tree of Whispers
- Diablo 4: Codex of Power
- Diablo 4: World Bosses
- Diablo 4: The Echo of Lilith
- Diablo 4: New Season of Blood endgame events
Diablo 4: World Tiers
After completing the main story of Diablo 4, one of the first things you’ll be able to do is increase Sanctuary’s world level. In the endgame, players have access to two extra difficulty levels: World level 3- Nightmare (recommended for characters level 50 to 70) and World level 4 – Torment (recommended for characters level 70 and above).
Changing World Tiers offers the opportunity of facing harder enemies, but also to gain loot of higher quality and rarity, such as Sacred and Ancestral items.
Diablo 4: Nightmare Dungeons
Once in World Level 3, Diablo 4 players will notice that Nightmare Sigils will start appearing on Sanctuary’s map. These sigils open Nightmare Dungeons, but they function as keys: players have no control over which will be activated. This mechanic will force Wanderers to stash every sigil in their inventory until they find which place they unlock, but they can be salvaged once used.
To get inside a Nightmare Dungeon, players will have to right-click a Nightmare Sigil in their inventory. This action will mark the place on the map, so it can be easier to find. At the end of these challenges, players will receive two pieces of loot and find an altar to upgrade Glyphs.
Diablo 4: Paragon Boards
Diablo 4’s Paragon Boards are custom passive trees, that can provide characters with stats to perfect their build. As players earn experience past level 50, they’ll also gain Paragon Points that can be spent on passive bonuses. Keep in mind that builds can only allocate up to 220 passives.
With the use of Glyphs, Wanderers will be able to improve Paragon Boards unlocking new abilities. Keep in mind that boards are designed according to each class and are tied to specific characters.
Diablo 4: Helltides
After finishing every Act of Diablo 4’s main story, players will have access to Helltide areas. These regions are where Hell’s influence makes enemies stronger and where players can search for crystals to unlock special reward caches.
Zones affected by a Helltide will spawn meteors as environmental hazards, increasing the monster level of the area by two above the player’s level. Defeating demons in this event will grant Aberrant Cinders that can be spent to open Tortured Chests that are scattered across the region affected by the Helltide.
A Helltide lasts for 60 minutes, and Diablo 4 will warn players of its duration when entering the map and hovering over the event icon. After the time’s up, any Aberrant Cinder collected will expire.
Diablo 4: Tree of Whispers
Wanderers will encounter the Tree of Whisperers in Act 5 of the Diablo 4 campaign. It’s located in the northeast corner of Hawezar: there’s no way you can miss it, it’s the tree with the talking heads hanging from it.
When players are done with the main story, they’ll get a Priority Quest that will direct them to speak with the tree, who’ll ask to gather Grim Favors which are gained after completing different missions. Keep in mind that every task rewards a different amount of favors:
- Complete a dungeon: +5 Grim Favors.
- Harvest a zone: +3 Grim Favors.
- Clear a cellar: +1 Grim Favor.
- Complete an event: +1 Grim Favor.
- Kill an elite: +1 Grim Favor.
- Slay an enemy type: +1 Grim Favor.
- Finish a Ritual: +3 Grim Favors .
- Defeat a World Boss: +5 Grim Favors.
The main goal is to earn 10 Grim Favors which can be exchanged for reward bundles.
Diablo 4: Codex of Power
The Codex of Power in Diablo 4 is a collection of Legendary Aspects that you can imprint on your items at The Occultists. These enhancements can be used on Rare or Legendary items.
Even though Codex of Power is unlocked early in the main story, it might require Wanderers to keep playing after finishing it to get all Aspects. This can be done by completing every Dungeon in Diablo 4’s map.
Diablo 4: World Bosses
World Bosses are enormous demons that spawn across the map of Sanctuary. Players can encounter them at random, but only after finishing the campaign, they’ll receive World Boss notifications. Keep in mind that this is the only way to be warned in-game of when these huge demons will appear, but fans have managed to build other types of trackers.
Diablo 4’s three main World Bosses are Ashava, The Pestilent; Avarice, The Gold Cursed and Wandering Death, Death Given Life. Season of Blood has introduced five new World Bosses, called Grigoire, The Galvanic Saint, The Beast in the Ice, Dark Master, Echo of Duriel, and Echo of Varshan.
Diablo 4: Echo of Lilith
Diablo 4’s Echo of Lilith is a Level 100 boss, and it’s designed to be the ultimate Diablo 4 enemy. This two-phase demon can be found in the Echo of Hatred and will only be available when playing in the World Tier level 4.
The Echo of Lilith is a more powerful version of Lilith and according to Diablo 4’s Associate Game Director, Joe Piepiora, this fight is a “pinnacle boss encounter.”
“Players that reach level 100 are going to have an extremely difficult time on this boss encounter. The expectation is that you take your class, you understand your build, you’ve maximized everything that you possibly can about it, and you really have learned encountered very well. And that’s going to be the way that you can maybe take it down,” described Piepiora.
Diablo 4: New Season of Blood endgame events
Diablo 4 Season 2 features new world events that players can complete with their Seasonal characters. Season of Blood introduced a vampire invasion that wants to take over Sanctuary and that players will need to vanquish before it’s too late.
One of the new events is called Blood Harvest, a timed event similar to Helltides. During a Blood Harvest, Diablo 4 players will need to slay every enemy within the Blood Harvest area, where they’ll get a chance to get Blood Lures, Hunter’s Acclaim, and Potent Blood to summon elites, get Vampire Powers, and earn seasonal rewards.
Season 2 also added five new World Bosses to Diablo 4’s endgame. Here’s the list of the new World Bosses you can fight:
- Grigoire, The Galvanic Saint (World Tier 3 and 4)
- Echo of Varshan (World Tier 3 and 4)
- The Beast in the Ice (World Tier 4)
- Dark Master (World Tier 4)
- Echo of Duriel (World Tier 4)
The latest season of Diablo 4 has also added the secret cow level, a mysterious Easter Egg that players are still trying to figure out.
