Diablo 4 players have been clearing mobs all throughout the whole of Sanctuary in search of six game-changing items. So far, only two Harlequin Crests have reportedly been found by players after several hundred million hours of playtime.
It has been three weeks since the world's biggest dungeon crawler has launched and we have yet to hear of players finding The Grandfather or Andariel’s Visage. These items are so rare that some players even doubt that they truly exist at all. As a matter of fact, when the first Harlequin Crest was found, Diablo 4 devs had to confirm that it indeed dropped.
Now, Diablo 4 players are wondering where they can find these items and just how rare they and, as per Blizzard, you won't like your chances.
Adam Jackson, the lead class designer for Diablo 4, gave the community information on these endgame drops, confirming just how difficult it is to find them in the game.
Jackson shared the names of the six ultra-rare uniques and their attributes:
- Doombringer (one-handed sword)
- The Grandfather (two-handed sword)
- Ring of Starless Skies
- Andariel’s Visage (helm)
- Harlequin Crest (helm)
- Melted Heart of Selig (amulet)
According to the tweet, all six unique items can drop from level 85+ enemies. These items can drop anywhere that regular uniques are found.
Hello! I wanted to clear up some details on the rarest Unique items in Diablo 4.
1. They can drop from level 85+ enemies
2. You get them anywhere you can get a regular Unique, and they always drop at 820 ipower
3. We currently have 6 of them in the game
4. They're realllly rare! pic.twitter.com/pVVj5DTEaU

Blizzard didn't share the items’ drop rates but said they can drop in place of any other unique in the game and the best way to farm is to do content that drops the most number of uniques per hour. So far, running dungeons like Iron Hold or Champion’s Demise are the best places to look for high-level uniques.
"Whenever you get a Unique there is a chance for that Unique to instead be one of these," Jackson tweeted. "Therefore, the best way to farm these is to do content that gives you the most Uniques per x period of time."
The devs also confirmed that these items have an item power of 820. This is good news as these items will never have a bad roll when they drop.
Many players have reacted negatively to the information shared by devs. Many lament the rarity of these items as millions of players have logged countless hours in the game and two items have reportedly dropped so far.
Others support having ultra-rare items in-game. A lot of Diablo players enjoy grinding for gear and having super hard-to-find items help keep gamers engaged and hunting for loot.
However, Blizzard could make grinding for these items feel a bit better by adjusting the drop rates a little bit. The items should still be extremely hard to find but not feel impossible. If the devs make the items drop once every few hours then it would feel much more attainable.
For now, the information that these items drop at level 85 should motivate a lot of players. Many have been struggling to get to World Tier 4 because of the sheer amount of time needed to level up. Hopefully, the devs would stop nerfing all our loot caves and start making the grind a bit more interesting. Or maybe the player base will find more of these rare items in the rumored Cow Level.
