Dealing with powerful bosses is a mixture of hard battles, death, and the occasional unique drop. Today we will be talking about the latter: here is how to get the Shard of Agony in Diablo 4.
Diablo 4: How to get Shard of Agony
To get a Shard of Agony in Diablo 4, you will have to face and defeat Grigoire, the Galvanic Saint. He is one of the many Endgame Bosses you can find in the Season of the Blood. While you can face him at World Tier 3, the Shard of Agony will only begin to work during World Tier 4. Moreover, it is a guaranteed drop and will only appear for the player that summons Grigoire.
To summon Grigoire, you will have to collect five pieces of Living Steel. Summoning Grigoire can require only two pieces of Living Steel at World Tier 3, but since World Tier 4 is mandatory to get a Shard of Agony, you will need to collect five pieces. You can find these inside Tortured Gifts of Living Steel during Helltide. Each of these will open by collecting and spending 300 Aberrant Cinders.
Finally, once you have the five pieces of Living Steel, you will have to head to the Hall of the Pentinent, just beside the Forgotten Depths dungeon, Dry Steppes. Use them to summon Grigoire and prepare for a very electrifying match.

Once you summon Grigoire, be sure to stay behind him to avoid his attacks and try to equip or consume any item that grants lightning resistance. Once you beat him, pick up your Shard of Agony. You will use this item to summon Duriel, King of Maggots, who is the hardest Endgame Boss of the bunch and can drop Uber Uniques. I wish you good luck fighting him!
