Diablo 4’s new Helltides see a portion of a region turned into a demonic hellscape filled with chests for you to battle your way toward. But inside these Helltides, you’ll also find secret chests called the Tortured Gift of Mysteries. For a whopping 250 Aberrant Cinders, you can open these special chests for the chance at some incredible loot.
Tortured Gift of Mysteries locations
There are multiple Tortured Gift of Mysteries that spawn over the course of each Helltide’s life — we’ve been able to get three or four in a single hour. But unlike the rest of the Tortured Gifts, the Tortured Gift of Mysteries won’t show up on your map. You’ll have to run around the entirety of the Helltide looking for it.
Thankfully, when you get close to a Tortured Gift of Mysteries, it will appear (briefly) on your minimap. We highly recommend that once you’ve found it, you use the Pin feature of your map on the Tortured Gift of Mysteries to help lockdown and remember its location. You should strive to find the location of your local Tortured Gift of Mysteries first before going off to farm Aberrant Cinders.
Reddit user cloudeightk made an incredible map — which we’ve linked above — that shows all the potential spawn locations for the Tortured Gifts of Mysteries. If you see a Helltide pop up, check the map first to give you an idea of where to look.
We also recommend checking out Helltide.com, which is an incredible source that will not only tell you the active Helltide location at the moment, but also show you which Tortured Gifts of Mysteries are currently up on the map.
Are the Tortured Gifts of Mysteries worth it?
Finding and opening a Tortured Gift of Mysteries should be your biggest priority in every Helltide you come across. This chest may be random, but it drops very high-powered gear for your level and has a high chance to drop multiple Legendaries at once. It even seems to have a higher chance at dropping Unique items — the best rarity in the game.
It’s important to keep in mind, however, that at 250 Aberrant Cinders, this chest is extremely expensive after the changes made to Helltide in season 1. If you’re struggling in a Helltide on your current World Tier, it may be wise to skip the expensive chest until things are a bit easier for you. Otherwise you could spend an hour trying to gather enough Aberrant Cinders only to lose half of them just before opening the chest.
However, even if the Tortured Gift of Mysteries is the only chest you can open in a Helltide, it’s absolutely worth your time. The gear, as well as the Legendary materials, are almost certainly going to aid your character more than anything you’d get out of one of the targeted chests.
Update (July 19): This guide has been updated to reflect the Tortured Gift price increase in season 1.
