There are five Malignants Rings that have been added to Diablo 4 after the Season of the Malignant came to an end, which means you can start using some of those powers again. To get the rings, though, you need to head back into the dark burrows.

Where to Find Malignant Rings in Diablo 4

The best method to get Malignant Rings is defeating the Nightmare Echo of Varshan in the Malignant Burrow or by getting lucky with random drops in Sanctuary. Killing the Nightmare Echo of Varshan on World Tier 3 or World Tier 4 is the most consistent method by a long shot. With the addition of target farming on uniques, each of the Diablo 4 end-game bosses has a list of unique loot that can drop. Varshan has a claim over the rings.

Like any of the other Uniques in the game, you can always get incredibly lucky as you defeat dungeon bosses or search chests. The Malignant Rings are still part of the overall loot pool, and that means any content yields at chance for a drop. However, the odds of finding one randomly are incredibly low, so stick to target farming if you really want one.

All Five Malignant Rings Listed in Diablo 4:

  • Ring of Red Furor (Barbarian Unique Ring)
    • After spending 100 Fury within 3 seconds, your next cast of Hammer of the Ancients, Upheaval, or Death Blow is a guaranteed Critical Strike and deals 10—30% (multiplicative damage) [x] bonus Critical Strike Damage.
  • Tal Rasha’s Iridescent Loop (Sorcerer Unique Ring)
    • For each type of Elemental damage you deal, gain 10—15%[x] increased damage for 4 seconds. Dealing Elemental damage refreshes all bonuses.
  • Airidah’s Inexorable Will (Druid Unique Ring)
    • When casting an Ultimate Skill and again 5 seconds after, Pull in Distant enemies and deal 0.5-1.0 Physical damage to them. This damage is increased by 1%[x] per 1 point of Willpower you have.
  • Writhing Band of Trickery (Rogue Unique Ring)
    • Casting a Subterfuge Skill leaves behind a Decoy Trap that continuously Taunts and lures enemies. The Decoy Trap explodes after 3 seconds dealing 2.0-3.0 Shadow damage. Can occur every 12 seconds.
  • Ring of the Sacrilegious Soul (Necromancer Unique Ring)
    • Automatically activate the following equipped Skills on Corpses around you:
      • Raise Skeleton every 1-2 seconds.
      • Corpse Explosion every 1-2 seconds.
      • Corpse Tendrils every 8-16 seconds.

Each of the five rings above was listed in the Diablo 4 patch notes following the Blizzard 2023 show. They are the first attempt at making seasonal content a permanent part of the Eternal Realm, and each class gets its own version of the ring with powerful effects. After Season 2 comes to a close, we could see something similar added to the Eternal Realm for Lord Zir.
