Diablo 4 Malignant Rings and how to get them

The new Diablo 4 Malignant Rings are special Unique Items that channel the heart-based powers from last season. Even though we’re in the Season of Blood now, these items will let you use a popular Malignant Heart ability from the first season in either the Seasonal or the Eternal Realm. 

Nothing is free in Sanctuary, however, and since these rings are Uniques, you’re going to have to farm in order to get them. Here I’ll list all five different rings and their abilities, plus explain what you have to do to lay your hands on one.

Diablo 4 Malignant Rings

There are five Malignant Rings in Diablo 4—one for each class—which provide one of the Malignant Heart powers from the first season.

The best way to get the Malignant Ring for your class is to re-fight the boss from the Season of the Malignant: Varshan. This corrupted priest is found in the Malignant Burrow underneath the Tree of Whispers on both Nightmare and Torment world tier

To summon him at the Malignant Altar, you need to gather four of his Malignant Body Parts, which you can get by:

Completing Whispers: Completing Whispers and opening their reward caches has a chance to give you some body parts.Grotesque Debtors: These unique enemies appear during Blood Harvest and at the end of world bosses, and also drop body parts.

If you have too many of one type, remember you can exchange them at the Alchemist to potentially get the others you need. Since the Malignant Rings are Unique Items, there’s no guarantee that defeating Varshan will get you one first try. Presumably, they can also drop randomly like any other Unique, but that’s yet to be confirmed.
