How to get the Hellfire Ring in Diablo 3

How to get the Hellfire Ring in Diablo 3

Updated February 2015:

With Reaper of Souls coming out, the process of getting the Hellfire ring has changed a little, but not much!

Let me say up front, that it is no longer worth your time trying to craft it. Unless of course you are a completionist, then by all means go ahead!

Here are the steps for crafting the new Hellfire ring:

Step 1: Gathering the keys

You need to gather 4 keys which drop from 4 keywardens.

  • Odeg drops the Key of Bones in Act 1 – Fields of Misery
  • Sokahr drops the Key of Gluttony in Act 2 – Dahlgur Oasis
  • Xah’Rith drops the Key of War in Act 3 – Stonefort
  • Nekarat drops the Key of Evil in Act 4 – Silver Spire

They keys only drop on Torment 1 or above difficulty and the plans for the Infernal Machine drops alongside them.

Step 2: Crafting the Infernal Machines

In order to craft an Infernal Machine, you need one each of the 4 keys.

There are 4 Infernal Machines that lead to a different realm each:

  • Infernal Machine of Bones leads to the Realm of Discord, where Leoric’s Signet drops from the King of the Dead and the Merciless Witch
  • Infernal Machine of War leads to the Realm of Turmoil, where the Idol of Terror drops.
  • Infernal Machine of Gluttony leads to the Realm of Chaos, where the Vial of Putridness drops.
  • Infernal Machine of Evil leads to the realm of fright, where the Heart of Evil drops.

Step 3: Crafting the Ring

Squirt the Peddler in Act 2 sells the plans for new and the old Hellfire ring. The new ring costs 5 million gold.

The ring costs 50000 gold to craft and it rolls with a 45% bonus to experience and a proc for a fire ring that deals 200% weapon damage.

In addition to this it rolls with 5 random stats, that are affected by smart loot.

Step 4: Find another ring instead of this crap :)

There are so many other legendary rings out there, so in the process of getting the Hellfire Ring….you have probably found another ring with better stats….so wear that!

Old version of the hellfire ring – not up to date!

A couple of days ago, I wrote about crafting the Infernal Machine and how to find the keywardens.

With an Infernal Machine, you are ready to enter three different realms, where each realm contains 2 uberbosses. These uberbosses drop loot and they also have a a chance to drop parts for the Hellfire Ring. A new awesome ring introduced in patch 1.0.5.
