Red Dust in Diablo 4

What is Red Dust?

Red Dust is a currency acquired via PvP. It's accepted in the PvP towns of Alzuuda and Denshar to:

Acquiring Red Dust

The only way to get Red Dust is to collect Seeds of Hatred on the Fields of Hatred through:

  • Slaying other players: the surviving player can loot the slain player's Seeds of Hatred
  • Killing Monsters: harder Monsters, like Elites and Bosses, provide more
  • Opening objects, like Chests: the rare Baleful Chest rewards hundreds of Seeds of Hatred
  • Finishing Events: although they attract other players, they give hundreds of Seeds of Hatred

Players then purify the Seeds of Hatred in a Ritual of Hatred, a tense 60 second ordeal where the player has to survive other players' and Monsters' attacks.

Once the ritual is complete, the player's Seeds of Hatred are converted (1:1) into Red Dust and safely locked away in their Inventory.

If, however, the player dies before the ritual's 60 seconds is up, they drop all of their Seeds of Hatred and none gets converted into Red Dust.

Can PvE players get Red Dust?

Technically, no. Players wishing to remain PvE ("Player vs. Environment") can enter the Fields of Hatred and participate in some activities, like:

And, while doing so, will accumulate Seeds of Hatred; however, these seeds are worthless unless converted to Red Dust, and the only way to do that is via a Ritual of Hatred, which automatically turns the player Bloodmarked (i.e., able to be attacked by other players and can attack other players). Therefore, a PvE player wanting Red Dust can't avoid PvP mode, albeit for a short time.
