One of the currencies in Diablo 4 is the Aberrant Cinders, an important one for opening the Helltide Chests. Helltide Chests contain rare and valuable gears and weapons far better than the ones found in Ordinary Chests.
The easy way to get Aberrant Cinders is by exchanging them for an item in D4. But, it will only earn you a sheer amount. If you are unlocking for some good amount of this currency, you need to put effort into grinding them.
Where to farm Aberrant Cinders in Diablo 4
The only way to farm Aberrant Cinders in Diablo 4 is by playing Helltide events. Helltide events are available in the open world of Diablo 4. But to access them, you must unlock the Nightmare Difficulty. These events appear after every few hours within a specific region of the game. What region gets chosen for Helltide is random but the Helltide always appears in the same areas of that region.
In Helltide Events, you must slay countless enemies in numbering waves. Killing these enemies during Helltide will grant you Aberrant Cinders in Diablo 4. Also in the Helltide Events are the Helltide Chests which Aberrant Cinders unlock.
The Helltide lasts for an hour during which you need to kill as many enemies as possible to stock up on Abberrant Cinders and Fiend Rose. While Cinders disappear after the Helltide ends, Fiend Rose stays in your materials inventory for crafting purposes.
The enemies you face in Helltide are not ordinary ones as their levels and ferocity are amped up a bit. Thankfully, that also makes Helltide one of the best ways to farm XP in Diablo 4 for endgame leveling.
Before you go in for the Aberrant Cinder hunt in Helltide Event, you must equip the best weapons and gears. Also, carry a suitable elixir depending on your build in Diablo 4, which will help you to last longer.
When the wave starts, simply slay enemies as fast as possible because time is limited, and you must make the best of it. Also, remember that you will lose half of your Aberrant Cinder earnings in Diablo 4 if you die. Since you need a massive 175 Aberrant Cinders to open up a Mystery Chest, make sure you don’t die.
The most important thing to remember is that you have to use the earned Aberrant Cinders within the Helltide event duration. Because when the timer hits zero, the Helltide Event will be closed, and your Aberrant Cinders in D4 will disappear from your inventory.
