Diablo 4 Season 2 has received its fair share of praise from the fans, however, many of them are not fond of the Helltides grind for resources. This is why, some players suggest that using Vampiric Zone pedestals can be a great solution to this problem.

Diablo 4 Season 2, also known as the Season of Blood, has attracted many players to the franchise and its new features are being praised by fans in the community. With new Vampric Powers and bosses introduced, Season 2 also includes a new set of cosmetics in the game.

However, not everyone is a fan of the grind this season as gathering materials such as Living Steel is proving to be tedious for some players. Many of them came forward on online platforms and raised their complaints about the Helltides grind this season.

A Diablo 4 player named ‘rafaelvicario’ has suggested that “Vampiric Zone summon pedestals” could “speed up the process of collecting 300 cinders.” For context, you would need 300 cinders to open one Living Steel chest to get the desired item for summoning Grigoire and Duriel.

According to the OP, Vampiric Zone pedestals would be a great way of summoning mobs and getting cinders during Helltides in Diablo 4. He also claimed this would enable you to “finish Helltides in like 20-30 minutes.”

Vampiric Zones enabled players to summon a large number mobs at a time and would be the perfect fit during an Helltides event where getting large amounts of Cinders remain the top priority among the players. This could a good addition according to the OP, as many players are “bored of running from event to event, some minigames inbetween would help with the fatigue.”

Alongside this, many players have also complained about the time-gated structure of the Helltides, and want the devs to “make helltide rotate every hour” as it will likely be great for all the farming during Helltides in the game.

Another player gave their views on the Vampiric Zone suggestion, as they “feel like the Vampiric Zone is them testing a potential Helltides change.” They further added that it wouldn’t surprise them “if Helltides started being like the Blood Legion area in S3.”

With several new updates being deployed lately, don’t be surprised to see a patch addressing the Helltides issue in the upcoming weeks in Diablo 4.
