Uber Uniques are the rarest and most powerful items in Diablo 4. They have unique effects that can drastically change your build and gameplay. However, Uber Uniques are extremely hard to find and only have around a 2% chance to drop from certain bosses. One of these bosses is Uber Duriel, who has a higher chance of dropping Uber Uniques than any other boss in the game.
Uber Duriel is one of the most challenging but rewarding bosses in Diablo 4. To fight him, you need to reach a decent level and access World Tier 4 (Torment difficulty). Additionally, you also have to collect the necessary materials in order to summon Uber Duriel in his dungeon lair. Once all the requirements are met, you can farm this boss for a chance of getting one or more Uber Uniques.
Here is how to access Uber Duriel, as well as a quick overview of the Uber Uniques he can drop.
Requirements and Preparation
Uber Uniques have a higher chance of dropping from Uber Duriel, King of Maggots. The boss can not be summoned in any World Tier lower than WT4 (Torment difficulty). In order to summon Duriel, you will need to farm the following materials:
- 2 Mucus-Slick Eggs
- 2 Shards of Agony
Mucus-Slick Eggs drop from The Echo of Varshan in World Tier 4. Varshan is Level 75, and can be summoned inside the Malignant Burrow, right next to the Tree of Whispers. You will need the following materials in order to summon Varshan:
- 1 Gurgling Head
- 1 Blackened Femur
- 1 Trembling Hand
- 1 Malignant Heart
The Gurgling Head, Blackened Femur, and Trembling Hand are parts of Varshan’s body that can be obtained when defeating Grotesque Debtors during Whispers of the Dead objectives. We recommend target-farming Whispers during Blood Harvests, as you will be able to complete many of them during that time and have plenty of chances of dropping said body parts.
The Malignant Heart, on the other hand, can drop from Whisper Caches, but only in World Tier 4. To receive a Whisper Cache, simply complete 10 Whispers of the Dead objectives and then head back to the Tree of Whispers. Again, we would recommend farming Whispers during Blood Harvests, so that you can complete many of them during the event, and increase your chances of dropping all the items needed during one Blood Harvest.
Shards of Agony
Shards of Agony drop from Grigoire, The Galvanic Saint in World Tier 4. Grigoire is Level 75, and can be summoned inside the Hall of the Penitent, south of Ked Bardu. You will need the following materials in order to summon Grigoire:
- 5 Living Steel
Living Steel can only be obtained during Helltide events, by opening Tortured Gifts of Living Steel Chests. Those chests are similar to Helltide Mystery Chests. They cost 300 Cinders to open, and are located in specific zones inside Helltide. Only two chests are active at the same time. In order to know the locations they can spawn, you can check our Living Steel chest locations guide.
In World Tier 3, only two Living Steel items will drop from each chest, while in World Tier 4 you will obtain five Living Steel items per chest.
If you can, try to participate in any Helltide event you encounter, and focus on farming 300 Cinders in order to open at least one Tortured Gift of Living Steel per Helltide.
Furthermore, if you can team up with other players, we highly recommend it, as any of these materials can be traded, and only one player inside the party needs to possess all of them in order to summon the bosses. This way, you can exchange the needed materials and target-farm the bosses to collect as many items as possible for Uber Duriel. Make sure to farm for more than one, this way you maximize your farming time by facing the bosses multiple times in a row.
Summoning Uber Duriel
Once you have farmed enough Mucus-Slick Eggs and Shards of Agony, head to the south of Kehjistan, next to Gea Kul, and travel to the Gaping Crevasse dungeon.
Inside, head to the Altar. If you are in a party, only one player will have to interact with the Altar in order to use the materials. This will then summon Uber Duriel, and the fight will begin!

Once Uber Duriel is defeated, you will have a higher chance of getting one of the following Uber Uniques as a reward:
- Ahavarion, Spear of Lycander (Druid, Sorcerer)
- Doombringer (Barbarian, Necromancer, Rogue)
- The Grandfather (Barbarian, Necromancer)
- Harlequin Crest (All Classes)
- Andariel’s Visage (All Classes)
- Ring of Starless Skies (All Classes)
- Melted Heart of Selig (All Classes)
Uber Uniques are very powerful items that can completely modify a build or playstyle. They can be extremely challenging to find, but through Uber Duriel, players now have higher chances to get their hands on one of them!
Make sure to team up with other players in order to maximize your farming time and materials obtained. Moreover, don’t hesitate to trade with each other to make sure you can farm Uber Duriel multiple times in a row. May the loot be in your favor!
