Red Dust is a currency that you will get from the PvP zones in Diablo 4 after farming enough Seeds of Hatred. You can head to the Altar of Extraction to purify these Seeds into Red Dust. Then, you can spend these refined currencies at the special vendors for buying and reward yourself with several exclusive PvP items. These rewards include PvP horse armor, cosmetics, and other special items.
But many are not sure where to spend Red Dust in D4 and what are the best ways to earn Seeds of Hatred. Don’t worry, this guide has got you covered with the best tips and strategies for farming Seeds of Hatred and Red Dust in Diablo.
How to Farm Red Dust in Diablo 4
As farming Red Dust in Diablo 4 requires getting Seeds of Hatred, head to any Fields of Hatred to join PvP. But before you enter the PvP zone, some things are to be duly noted. They are as follows:
- You lose all the farmed Seeds of Hatred when killed by an enemy, boss, or mob.
- If you teleport the Fields of Hatred, you lose all progress and farmed Seeds. However, you don’t lose your purified and farmed Red Dust.
- You cannot leave the PvP area before purifying the Seeds of Hatred in D4.
- You must get a Mark of Blood or get Bloodmarked before entering PvP.
Once you know the above points, you can get on with farming Seeds of Hatred in D4 to refine them into Red Dust.
Here are the best ways to farm Red Dust and Seeds of Hatred in Diablo 4.
Clear PvP mode with Party or other Players
Since purifying the Seeds at the Altar of Extraction is interrupted by other players, have friends or a party to watch your back. Once you start with the Ritual, all the players in the Field will get notified. So, grouping up with your friends or other players can increase your chances of survival. After you have farmed enough Red Dust in D4, leave the PvP area to secure them.
Hunting Players with Hatred’s Chosen Status
While slaying monsters and other players, you will be notified of someone getting the Hatred’s Chosen status. As soon as someone gets this status, they can get a large bonus at the end of the event. However, you can snatch their bonus by defeating them in the Fields of Hatred. But since they have killed enough players to get this status, defeating them won’t be a cakewalk. But once you beat them, you can get more Red Dust in Diablo 4.
Likewise, if you get the Hatred’s Chosen status, you will be hunted down by other players in the PvP zone. At that point, your goal has to be maintaining that status while killing everything coming your way.
Beat Seething Abomination Boss
Being a roaming boss in the PvP zones, beating Seething Abomination can reward you with larger Seeds of Hatred drops. You can get approximately 2,000 to 3,000 seeds for defeating this PvP boss. While dealing with this boss, we recommend having several Healing Potions. As this boss fight will have multiple phases, we recommend teaming up with other players to take him down.
Opening Baleful Chests
You can open the Baleful Chests in the PvP zones to get bigger drops of Seeds of Hatred in Diablo 4. But to unlock and open these chests, you must be Bloodmarked. Although opening these chests requires no combat, you can be eliminated by other players due to the Bloodmark. So, be cautious of other players.
Killing Players, Enemies & Monsters
Lastly, don’t forget to kill all enemies on your way to farm Red Dust in Diablo 4. Be it an elite mob or other PvP players, getting the most kills is the only way to survive the PvP mode. But aside from surviving the Fields, normal enemies drop 30-40 Seeds. While elite enemies and mobs can drop up to 200 Seeds. If you hesitate to beat an enemy, you will lose all the farmed Seeds of Hatred in D4 instantly.
So, be ruthless and kill every enemy (except your teammates) with no holds barred.
Where to Spend Red Dust in Diablo 4
You can spend your farmed Red Dust by heading to the special vendors in D4. These vendors are highlighted with a Seed of Hatred icon on the map. You can find these vendors in Alzuuda and Denshar. So, here are all the vendor shops you can spend Red Dust at:
- Odds and Ends
- Cursed Scroll
- Unsavory Oddities
- Unconventional Mount Armor
