Everything you need to know about Shrines in Diablo 4, including all the types and their effects you can utilize in Sanctuary.
All Diablo 4 Shrines & Buffs

As a returning gameplay mechanic in Diablo 4, Shrines can provide players with nice buffs throughout their journey. Scattered across the world of Sanctuary, players will find a wealth of Shrines to interact with and gain a temporary bonus.

This guide explains all the Shrine types in Diablo 4, their effects/buffs on the player character, and basics such as the duration of Shrine effects in the latest entry of Blizzard's iconic ARPG franchise, so let's get started.

Update on 14 August 2023: We've updated this article with one more Diablo 4 Shrine types.

Not to be confused with the Altars of Lilith, Shrines in Diablo 4 provide temporary buffs to your character. They can be found in the open world zones and in instanced dungeons, Strongholds, and more.

Shrines in Diablo 4 have an effective duration of 30 seconds. The duration, however, can be increased by an Affix on Boots, which allows for up to a 10% increase, making the maximum known duration of Shrine effects in Diablo 4 33 seconds.

Interacting with a Shrine in Diablo 4 adds a basic 35% movement speed increase. It is important to note that even when in a party, all players must click on the Shrine to get its effect.
