Diablo 4 Helltide Timer
Helltide Events in Diablo 4 lasts for an hour after spawning. They can take place in any of the 5 main regions of the game. In order to check where the event is taking place simply open your map and check for the glowing red regions. These regions are indications of demon invasions in those areas.
In case you don’t happen to have a Helltide event ongoing in your game. That means that one has happened already and you will have to wait until the next one starts. You can use third-party Helltide trackers to find out if there is an event ongoing or when the next one is about to begin.

When will the next Helltide Event Happen in Diablo 4?
Helltide events in D4 take place after a gap of 75 minutes. So you need to wait for 1 hour and 15 minutes before being able to participate in another such event.
How are Helltide events Useful
Helltide events are very useful to collect Aberrant Cinder. You can use it to open Mystery chests or other types of chests that you can find during the event in those regions. Tortured Gifts of Mysteries or the Helltide Mystery Chest are the best because they guarantee you at least 1 Legendary drop. But out of all the other chests that use these Cinders these are also the most expensive.
Do remember to use up your Aberrant Cinders before the event gets over as it doesn’t carry over to the next and gets wasted. Aside from these Cinders, you can also use these events to farm resources like Fiend Roses or Forgotten Souls.
