What Are Diablo 4 Nightmare Sigils?

Nightmare Sigils are rare items in Diablo 4 that can be used to enhance regular Dungeons and turn them into Nightmare Dungeons, a beefier version.

However, these sigils are not all the same and can vary in ‘tier’ which subsequently changes up how difficult the Nightmare Dungeon will be once the sigil is applied.

These tiers can be between 1-20 in World Tier 3 and 21-100 in World Tier 4, making those World Tier 4 Nightmare Dungeons one of the hardest activities in the game.

How To Get Nightmare Sigils Diablo 4

To get your first Nightmare Sigil, you need to have completed the main campaign, unlocking the Capstone Dungeon in Kyovashad, and meeting the requirements to unlock World Tier 3.

Once you’ve conquered the Capstone Dungeon, your next destination is The Whispering Tree, a character you encountered during Act 4 of the campaign, as this is the easiest and most reliable way of getting an intial Nightmare Sigil.

The Whispering Tree will give you a task: gather Grim Favors. Collect 10 of these and return them to the tree, and you’ll receive a choice of three reward caches.

Each cache has a chance of containing a Nightmare Sigil, making this step crucial to obtaining your first one.

After acquiring your first Nightmare Sigil, more can be found in World Tier 3. While they can technically drop anywhere in this tier, they are rare and most frequently appear in specific locations.

World Bosses are a prime source of Nightmare Sigils, dropping them more regularly than most sources. However, the best place to secure more Nightmare Sigils is actually in Nightmare Dungeons.

The drop rate for Nightmare Sigils is higher in these challenging environments, providing you with a reliable, if difficult, method of obtaining more, creating a farm if you will.

If you can join a party with someone already running a Nightmare Dungeon, you can potentially gather several Nightmare Sigils in a single run without burning your own.

Furthermore, Nightmare Dungeons also offer a chance to obtain sigil powder, a crafting material that can be used at an Occultist to create more Nightmare Sigils, removing the need to grind for them out in the wild.
