While you might be busy dealing with vampires, there is something malignant still wandering Sanctuary. Here is everything you need to know about the new Malignant Rings in Diablo 4.
Diablo 4: All New Malignant Rings
The new Malignant Rings, just as the name implies, are new items that bring Malignant powers back to the table. Each of these class-specific rings will feature a popular power from the Season of the Malignant. To get these Malignant Rings, you will have to summon and defeat the Echo of Varshan inside the Malignant Burrow. If you are wondering how to do so, check out our piece on how to summon endgame bosses in Diablo 4 Season 2. But anyway, each of these are ancestral unique rings, so expect to do some grinding due to the existing unique loot pool.
|Malignant Ring||Class||Description||Unique Effect|
|Writhing Band of Trickery||Rogue||The ring shifts and spins on your finger as the forces within desperately attempt to escape.||Casting a Subterfuge Skill leaves behind a Decoy Trap that continuously Taunts and lures enemies. The Decoy Trap explodes after 3 seconds dealing [5,521-8,282] Shadow damage. Can occur every 12 seconds.|
|Tal Rahsa’s Iridescent Loop||Sorcerer||“Fool said he dug it out of the sands near Lut Gholein with a few other ‘worthless trinkets’. I hid my delight at receiving such a treasure in exchange for a meager handful of coins.”
|For each type of Elemental damage you deal, gain [10.0-15.0]% increased damage for 4 seconds. Dealing Elemental damage refreshes all bonuses.|
|Ring of Red Furor||Barbarian||“Anger brings strength but clouds the mind. You must learn to focus your fury, direct it with purpose. Keep our sacred duty at the forefront of your mind, always.”
– Talic, to Madawc
|After spending 100 Fury within 3 seconds, your next cast of Hammer of the Ancients, Upheaval, or Death Blow is guaranteed Critical Strike and deals [10 – 30]% bonus Critical Strike Damage.|
|Airidah’s Inexorable Will||Druid||“When I was born, I breathed in the wind and the storm and they gave me life. When I die, I will breath out, and return that gift to the skies.”
– Journal excerpt
|When casting an Ultimate SKill and again 5 seconds after, you Pull in Distant enemies and deal [1,380 – 2,760] Physical damage to them. This damage is increased by 1.0%[x] per 1 point of Willpower you have.|
|Ring of the Sacrilegious Soul||Necromancer||The mere proximity of a practitioner of such dar arts can rouse the dead and disturb those souls who have earned their rest.||You automatically active the following equipped Skills on Corpses around you:
– Raise Skeleton every [2.0 – 1.0] seconds.
– Corpse Explosion every [2.0 – 1.0] seconds.
– Corpse Tendrils every [2.0 – 1.0] seconds.
