Tips To Farm Wrathful Hearts In Diablo 4 Season 1

Season 1 of Diablo 4 came in swinging with the introduction of Malignant Hearts. These grant players tons of useful buffs when obtained from Malignant enemies throughout the game. However, they aren't all made equal; there are four main types, with the Wrathful Hearts being the most rare and most powerful among them. 

So if you're looking to buff up your character in Diablo 4, look no further. This guide will show you how to farm Wrathful Malignant Hearts in Diablo 4 Season 1. So without further delay, let's jump right in.  

Best Tips To Farm Wrathful Hearts In Diablo 4 Season 1

There are four ways to farm Wrathful Hearts in Season 1 of Diablo 4. The first two are through crafting Malignant Hearts at Cormond's Wagon and defeating Varshan the Consumed boss, both of which you can explore through our dedicated and detailed guides linked above.

The next two are what we will cover in this guide, which is the method of defeating Wrathful Elites by using a Wrathful Envoker and using a Farming route discovered by a player in the Diablo 4 community. So let's cover both below: 

Defeat Wrathful Elites after using Wrathful Invoker

You can create a Wrathful Invoker at Cormond's Wagon and then use it on Wrathful Outgrowths found at the end of Malignant Tunnels. These Outgrowths summon Wrathful Elite enemies, and defeating them has a chance of dropping a caged Wrathful Heart. However, obtaining a Wrathful Invoker depends on getting lucky with the loot pool when crafting an Uncertain Invoker.

Farming Wrathful Hearts from Varshan

A method shared by MrRonnit on the Diablo 4 subreddti suggested an effective way to farm Wrathful Hearts in Diablo 4. As of the current writing, this method involves not speaking to Cormond after defeating Varshan The Consumed for the first time during the Season 1 questline. This guarantees a Wrathful Heart drop from Varshan, but the subsequent Echo fights using Varshan Invokers have only a chance of dropping a Wrathful Heart.

The best farming method for Wrathful Hearts is to defeat Varshan and reset the boss's dungeon to repeat the process. (Picture: Blizzard)

Here's the strategy: defeat Varshan during 'The Cold Hard Truth' quest, then leave the dungeon and reset it from the map menu. Return to kill Varshan again for more potential Legendary gear and a guaranteed Wrathful Heart. You can repeat this process as many times as desired. However, make sure to ignore Cormond after each run.

It's important to mention that a recent hotfix has significantly increased the drop rates of both Wrathful Invokers and Wrathful Hearts, including the crafted ones. This change makes it notably easier to obtain these items. While this enhancement doesn't alter the methods explained earlier (aside from making the items more accessible), you may want to consider either fully clearing the tunnels or, at the very least, eliminating all the Malignant elites. Doing so will provide you with the necessary materials to craft Heart or Invoker caches.

You can also replay this dungeon with a friend in case you've already cleared it, which will also result in double the Malignant Heart drops, increasing your chances of getting a Wrathful Heart. (Picture: Blizzard)

Even if you've progressed beyond this point in the quest, you can still use this farming approach by joining a friend's game and farming the route together, as both players will receive Wrathful Heart drops. It's essential to note that this method works on any World Tier Level, meaning you'll obtain better hearts as you progress through higher levels and tackle tougher difficulties.

If this method is eventually patched, the next effective way to farm Wrathful Hearts is by heading to the Ravening Pit Malignant Dungeon. This dungeon often has two guaranteed Malignant Elites near the entrance. If these elites aren't Wrathful, exit the dungeon and reset it from the map menu, then try again.
