The pursuit of power in the dark and treacherous world of Diablo 4 often leads to seeking out rare and mystical items capable of unlocking challenges and horrors alike. As adventurers delve deeper into Season 2, whispers of a new material have begun to circulate–the Distilled Fear. This enigmatic concoction is not merely a trophy for the bold but a necessary ingredient for those daring enough to confront The Beast in the Ice, a formidable foe lurking within the game’s icy expanses.
Acquiring Distilled Fear
To acquire Distilled Fear in Diablo 4, heroes must venture into the dungeons, but first, they must have reached World Tier 4. Once they have reached this threshold, they will want to enter Nightmare Dungeons that are at least Tier 30. Upon beating a Tier 30 or higher Nightmare Dungeon, the boss will have a chance to drop a Distilled Fear for the player. Players will need to collect nine of these Distilled Fear if they wish to summon The Beast in the Ice.
Using Distilled Fear
After collecting all 9 Distilled Fear, players must collect 250 Sigil Powder, which can be earned from completing Whispers of the Dead and Nightmare Dungeons. Players can also Salvage Nightmare Sigils they do not wish to use, which will net them a small amount of Sigil Powder with each Nightmare Sigil that is salvaged. When players have amassed the required resources, they will want to head to the Occultist in town who will take these items and craft a Glacial Fissure Nightmare Sigil.
Confronting The Beast in the Ice
To face off against The Beast in the Ice, players must simply use the Glacial Fissure Nightmare Sigil to be teleported to the Glacial Fissure Nightmare Dungeon located in the Fractured Peaks near the eastern edge of the Desolate Highlands.
The Beast in the Ice Loot
The Beast in the Ice has a sizeable loot table and drops many class-based unique items, as well as some that are usable by all classes. The items that The Beast in the Ice can drop include Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Rogue, Sorcerer, and items for all classes. This means that, like every item in Diablo 4, the chances of getting a specific item are all up to luck. However, with enough time and luck on their side, players can take down The Beast in the Ice and acquire the unique items they desire.
Acquiring Distilled Fear in Diablo 4 is no easy feat, but for those brave enough to seek it out, the rewards and the challenge that come with it are undoubtedly worth it. With the proper preparation, a bit of luck, and a dash of courage, players can face The Beast in the Ice and emerge with powerful and coveted loot.
