The Hellfire Torch is an incredibly powerful charm for D2R Non-Ladder Items that can greatly boost your character's potential. Obtaining one requires completing the challenging Pandemonium Event, also known as "Ubers." This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to successfully farm the Hellfire Torch.
The Hellfire Torch provides large boosts to a character's stats and skills. Every build benefits tremendously from having one. Farming it is a 3 step process:
- Collect Keys from Key Bosses
- Open Portals to Mini Ubers using Keys
- Defeat Uber Tristram bosses
Step 1: Key Farming
You need 3 Keys to open each portal:
- Key of Terror from The Countess
- Key of Hate from The Summoner
- Key of Destruction from Nihlathak
Farm these bosses until you have 3 of each Key. The Countess drops Key of Terror and is located in the Forgotten Tower. She uses a dangerous Corpse Explosion skill. The Summoner drops Key of Hate and is found in the Arcane Sanctuary. He summons powerful undead minions. Nihlathak drops Key of Destruction and is located in the Halls of Vaught. He uses devastating Corpse Explosion and is very deadly.
Step 2: Opening Portals to Mini Ubers
Once you have 3 of each Key, use them in the Horadric Cube to open Red Portals to the Mini Ubers:
- Matron's Den - Lilith
- Forgotten Sands - Uber Duriel
- Furnace of Pain - Uber Izual
Each portal is random, so open all 3. Defeat the Mini Ubers to get organ drops used to open Uber Tristram.
Step 3: Uber Tristram
Put the dropped organs in the Cube to open a portal to Uber Tristram. Defeat the buffed Prime Evils:
- Mephisto - Very dangerous, summons skeletons
- Baal - Highly durable with chilling attacks
- Diablo - Less threatening but summons dangerous minions
Use tactics like pulling bosses separately and stocking rejuvenation potions. With preparation, you can defeat them and have a chance to drop the incredibly powerful Hellfire Torch!
Farming the Hellfire Torch takes time and skill, but the reward is well worth the effort. With this D2R Non-Ladder Items, you now have all the information needed to take on the challenge of Uber Tristram and greatly empower your character with the almighty Hellfire Torch!
