How to Get Stygian Stones & Fight Tormented Bosses in Diablo 4

Season 4 of Diablo 4 throws down the gauntlet with brutal new challenges. To face the toughest bosses, you’ll need a rare resource: Stygian Stones. This guide equips you with everything you need to know about acquiring and using these coveted stones.

Where to Find Stygian Stones in Diablo 4

Stygian Stones are a new resource exclusive to Season 4. To claim them, you’ll need to delve into The Pit of the Artificers, a time-based dungeon testing your combat prowess. This endgame activity throws waves of enemies and a final boss your way within a strict 10-minute window. Death whittles away at your precious time, so stay sharp!

The Pit offers 200 Tiers of escalating difficulty, with Tier 1 featuring foes around level 100. However, there’s a catch: only the player who spends Runeshards to activate The Pit receives a Stygian Stone upon completion. Party members get Masterworking materials, but no Stones.

Summoning Tormented Bosses

Stygian Stones are the key to summoning Tormented Bosses. These twisted versions of familiar endgame bosses, like the new Andariel, pack a serious punch. Be prepared, as Tormented Bosses boast level 200 power compared to the standard level 100 versions.

Here’s a breakdown of the Tormented Bosses you can summon and the resources required (note the PTR’s reduced Stygian Stone cost for easier access):

  • Andariel: 2 Stygian Stones, 6 Pincushioned Dolls, 6 Sandscorched Shackles
  • Duriel: 2 Stygian Stones, 6 Shards of Agony, 6 Mucus-Slick Eggs
  • Grigoire: 2 Stygian Stones, 15 Living Steel
  • Lord Zir: 2 Stygian Stones, 27 Exquisite Blood
  • Varshan: 2 Stygian Stones, 3 Gurgling Heads, 3 Blackened Femurs, 3 Trembling Hands, 3 Malignant Hearts
  • Beast in the Ice: 2 Stygian Stones, 27 Distilled Fear, 250 Sigil Powder, 30,000 Gold

The resource cost reflects the Tormented bosses’ increased difficulty. Just look at Andariel – two Stygian Stones, six of each Doll and Shackle! To efficiently farm these resources, consider grouping up with others who want to tackle Tormented bosses. Each player can then contribute their own materials, allowing you to summon the boss and share the spoils.

With this knowledge, you’re well on your way to conquering the toughest challenges of Diablo 4 Season 4. Remember, teamwork is key when facing the Tormented Uber Bosses. So, gather your most skilled allies, gather your Stygian Stones, and prepare to claim your dominance over the wasteland!
