Diablo 4: How to get the Soulbrand
The thrill of obtaining the rarest items in a game is undeniably appealing. But actually achieving it is another story. Here’s a guide on how to obtain the coveted Soulbrand in Diablo 4.
To obtain the Soulbrand in Diablo 4, be prepared to undertake a lengthy journey of perseverance and luck. The Soulbrand is just one of the many Unique items available in the game. Aside from the Uber Uniques, which are slightly more rare, these items are some of the most challenging to acquire. This is due to their extremely low drop rates and the complex steps required to improve the item’s chances of appearing, which are among the most difficult tasks in the game. If you’re feeling fortunate, you can acquire the Soulbrand by defeating enemies and opening chests at World Tier 3 and above. You can also vanquish World Bosses and complete Gathering Legions or Nightmare Dungeons.
Alternatively, you can confront Duriel, the King of Maggots and the toughest Endgame Boss from the Season of the Blood. While this may seem like a daunting undertaking, Duriel not only drops Uniques but also Uber Uniques, so it might just be your lucky break! Keep in mind that summoning him requires defeating Echo of Varshan and Grigoire, the Galvanic Saint, twice, and offering two Mucus-Slick Eggs and two Shards of Agony, which are drops from each of the aforementioned Endgame Bosses, respectively. Prepare yourself for a highly challenging battle at the Gapin Crevasse in Kehjistan.
The Soulbrand provides a substantial benefit by replacing your Healing Potion’s instant healing ability with a Barrier that heals for 200% of the original amount over 4 seconds. Additionally, you’ll benefit from a 10-20% damage reduction, making this Unique item a potential game-changer! Hopefully, you won’t have to endlessly grind the game to obtain it.
