Fastest way to farm Glyphs in Diablo 4

The best way to farm the rarest Glyphs in Diablo 4 is by doing the Nightmare Dungeons on the World Tier Three Nightmare difficulty, as they have a higher drop rate compared to other dungeons in the game. In Nightmare Dungeons you can obtain Glyphs dropped from elites, chests, and the final boss.

To unlock the Nightmare Dungeons, you must have completed the campaign mode as well as the level 50 Capstone Dungeon and have obtained a Nightmare Sigil from a Grim Favors Cache.

How to use Glyphs in Diablo 4

Once you obtain a Glyph in Diablo 4, you can place it on the Paragon Board. To do this, you must have unlocked your first Glyph socket using the Paragon Points from leveling.

Each Glyph has a radius and a bonus, or a set of bonuses, based on its rarity. It’s evident that the rarer the Glyph, the larger the radius it will have, providing greater benefits when you can upgrade it.

How to upgrade Glyphs in Diablo 4

If you have obtained a Glyph that you really like in Diablo 4, you can make it even stronger by upgrading it. In Nightmare Dungeons, after defeating the final boss or completing all the objectives, an Awakened Glyphstone will appear, which allows you to give XP to a chosen Glyph.

By doing this, you will improve its bonuses. However, it’s important to note that once you give experience to a Glyph, you won’t be able to recover that XP, so choose carefully which Glyphs you want to upgrade.
