Diablo 4 (D4)

How to Get Distilled Fear

Distilled Fear is one of the components needed to summon The Beast in the Ice in Diablo 4 (D4). Read on to learn more about Distilled Fear, how to get it, how to use it, and its overview.

How to Get Distilled Fear

Clear Tier 30 or Above Nightmare Dungeons

You can obtain Distilled Fear by finishing Tier 30 or higher Nightmare Dungeons, which are only accessible in World Tier 4. The item automatically appears in your Consumables tab at the end of the dungeon if you are fortunate enough to get one.

According to our testing, the difficulty of the dungeon doesn't affect the drop rate of Distilled Fear, so it's best to farm at dungeons suitable to your gear and level. The drop rate for this material is quite low, so expect to farm numerous Nightmare Dungeons.

Crafting Tier 30 or Above Nightmare Sigils

You can only craft Tier 30 or above Nightmare Sigils in the Occultist starting in World Tier 4. To do this, you must gather the required amount of Sigil Powder for the tier you're aiming for and use it at the Occultist.

The fastest way to get Sigil Powder initially is by completing Tree of Whisper objectives and salvaging the Nightmare Sigils you obtain. Another way is to simply use the sigils and clear the Nightmare Dungeons you activated.

How to Get and Salvage Sigils

How to Use Distilled Fear

Craft Glacial Fissure Nightmare Sigils

Distilled Fear is used to craft a Glacial Fissure Nightmare Sigil. To do so, gather a total of 9 Distilled Fear and 250 Sigil Powder, then visit the Occultist to craft the sigil.

Using this sigil will allow you to activate the Glacial Fissure Nightmare dungeon and fight one of the Uber bosses called The Beast in the Ice.
