How to Get the Tears of Blood Glyph in Diablo 4

The Season of the Blood continues to roll out content for those who aspire to reach the greatest and goriest heights. And there’s no better prize than the Tears of Blood Glyph, which only the top percentage of players will likely get their hands on.

First, you must gain access to the Abattoir of Zir. To get access to the Abattoir of Zir, you must complete all Chapters of the Season journey first. Once these chapters are complete, you’ll unlock a recipe to craft the Bloodforged Sigil, which you can craft at your local Occultist. Use the Bloodforged Sigil to create a Visceral Channel, which will appear in Ked Bardu.

Go through the channel to access the Abattoir of Zir.

Once you’re inside, you’ll have ten minutes to clear enough enemies to summon the final Bloodseekers. Defeat them, and you’ll have completed the first tier of the Abattoir of Zir. And while there are multiple tiers in the Abattoir, you only need to complete one tier to unlock the unique glyph, Tears of Blood.

And that’s likely for the best, as the first level of the Abbatoir of Zir is similar in difficulty to a level 100 Nightmare Dungeon. There are 25 tiers, each being more difficult than the last.

How Does the Tears of Blood Glyph Work in Diablo 4

The Tears of Blood Glyph is a Glyph like no other. You need significantly more experience to upgrade it compared to your standard Paragon Glyph.

Tears of Blood increases every 5 core stats purchased within range of where it’s placed. You gain 2.0% increased damage. It grants 50% bonus to all Rare nodes within range. And you receive a bonus increase by 10% every 10 levels.

The Tears of Blood essentially supercharges your character. But because it’s so hard to level, it’s best to grind out experience in the Abattoir of Zir.
