Diablo 4’s post-story gameplay offers a variety of powerful bosses to fight, but to summon them, players need materials such as Shards of Agony. Obtaining even one unit of this item may take hours, but it’s worth it. The purpose of Shards of Agony is to summon Duriel, the main endgame boss.
However, to get the necessary ingredients, you will have to try hard to do a lot of stuff, including collecting Aberrant Cinders and defeating another post-story boss. Stock up on potions and equipment with lightning protection, and we will guide you along the right path.

Learn what Seeds of Hatred are and how to get them in Diablo 4.
Where To Find Shards of Agony in Diablo 4
The only way to get Shards of Agony in Diablo 4 is to defeat Grigoire, The Galvanic Saint in World Tier 4. To accomplish this, you must go to the Hall of the Penitent in the eastern part of Dindai Flats. But before you rush into battle, consider a few essential conditions:
- Firstly, you can challenge this boss on World Tier 3, but you will not receive Shards of Agony. This reward is exclusive to the highest difficulty level, so keep that in mind.
- In addition, Shards of Agony will only be awarded to the player who activated the boss summoning altar. Therefore, if you are fighting in a group, only one of you will receive the most valuable resource for summoning Duriel.
- Even if you have completed all the requirements, there is always a negligible chance that you will not receive Shards of Agony. So just try again if you didn’t get lucky the first time.
How To Summon Grigoire in Diablo 4
To summon Grigoire in World Tier 4, you must place 5 Living Steel on the altar in the Hall of the Penitent. You can get this material from the Tortured Gifts of Living Steel chest during Helltide events. In turn, this event occurs once every 75 minutes in a random location on the map and lasts 60 minutes.
By participating in Helltide on World Tier 4, you can get 3 Living Steel from each chest, so you can collect the required amount in one event. But keep in mind that opening each Tortured Gifts of Living Steel will cost you 300 Aberrant Cinders.
Once you have 5 Living Steel, you can head to the altar and summon Grigoire. But foremost, ensure that your strength is enough to win. The key element of this boss is Lightning, so using specific items and potions that protect against this type of attack will be a good help for your victory. Also, the boss is level 75, so don’t take this battle too lightly. On the other hand, Grigoire’s attack patterns are relatively predictable. So staying behind it and keeping an eye on the red zones on the floor will help you avoid most of the damage.

How To Use Shards of Agony in Diablo 4
The only use for this material is to summon Duriel. But to activate the altar of this boss, you need at least two Shards of Agony and two Mucus-Slick Eggs. Go to the Gaping Crevasse dungeon in the southernmost part of Kehjistan and find the altar. The level 100 boss will seem like a real challenge even for the most experienced players, but you can get a ton of valuable rewards, including Uber Unique items.
