Starting next week, players who have completed the latest season in Diablo IV can up their challenge by taking on the Abattoir of Zir, which will be coming on December 5th.
The endgame dungeon will be available in World Tier IV, and while you'll need to have completed all the seasonal chapters before this to enter, the challenge should be worth it in the end. The Abattoir of Zir sees players jump into a ten-minute challenge where the goal is simply to slay the enemies within - especially the Bloodseekers.
Blizzard calls Abattoir of Zir, which will run for six weeks, the "hardest challenge" of the current season, Season of Blood. And it seems that way. As each tier of the dungeon is completed, you'll need to craft the next tier's Bloodforged Sigil, and by completing the first tier you'll be rewarded with a unique glyph, the Tears of Blood.
Via today's blogpost:
"A high price is demanded for a Glyph of such strength. The Tears of Blood Glyph requires significantly more experience to upgrade it compared to a typical Paragon Glyph. Fortunately, delving deeper into the Abattoir of Zir can net tremendous sums of Paragon Glyph experience in return."
You can check out the highlights as part of today's campfire chat livestream. Diablo IV's next challenge hits platforms on December 5th. While I'm finally getting into the ARPG, thanks to the Steam Deck OLED, I'm not quite sure I'll make it in time. However, maybe I'll be ready by the time the Midwinter Blight event kicks off on December 12th.
This limited-time event was highlighted during BlizzCon 2023 and will see players able to slay new monsters, collect rewards, and even decorate the Midwinter Square with the bones of our slain. New quests will also be available to tackle during the event in the Fractured Peaks region, so players can look forward to a challenge - especially if taking on the Abattoir seems a bit too daunting.
