Fields of Hatred

Fields of Hatred is the PVP zone of Diablo 4! While in this area other players can attack you and you can attack them. The zone combines PVE and PVP and rewards you with the Red Dust Currency! Enemies in the zone(NPC and Players) drop Seeds of Hatred that you can transform into Red Dust by performing a short ritual. Red Dust is the currency used in the Fields of Hatred vendors in order to buy various cosmetic and utility items. If you enjoy PVP, then the Fields of Hatred is going to be an important part of your Daily Routine along with Nightmare Dungeons and Helltides!

Where to Find the Fields of Hatred in Diablo 4

In total there are two Fields of Hatred in Diablo 4! You can find them both on the Western part of the map. One in the Dry Steppes zone and one in Kehjistan. They appear red on the map.

When you enter these areas a couple effects will affect your character. The first effect will boost your Damage over Time, Control Impaired Duration Reduction, Potion Drop Rate and reduce your Potion Healing, increase the cooldown of your Potion and reduce your Minion/Companion Health. The Second effect triggers when you kill another player and causes them to drop their Seeds of Hatred, Heals you for a % of your Missing Life and Reduces your Cooldowns by 10 seconds.

Before you can attack other players you have to be Bloodmarked! You can use the Mark for Blood option in the Action Wheel. To remove the Bloodmarked effect from your character, interact with the Altar of Cleansing in the vendor area of the Fields(safe area)! You can roam around the area and collect Seeds of Hatred even if you are not Bloodmarked however.

How to Get Red Dust in Diablo 4

Enjoying PVP in Diablo 4 is the number one reason to enter the Fields of Hatred. But you can also earn the area’s special currency, Red Dust! Red Dust does not drop directly from enemies in the area though. You need to collect first Seeds of Hatred, then purify those Seeds in order to earn Red Dust!

Seeds of Hatred

You can earn Seeds of Hatred from a variety of sources inside these areas:

  • Enemy NPC
  • Other Players
  • Event Chests
  • Seething Abomination Boss
  • Baleful Chests(must be Bloodmarked)

The Seeds you collect are temporary and will disappear if you leave the area or will drop if you die! To turn them into Red Dust and add this currency permanently to your character, you will have to perform a short Ritual of Purification first! Around the Fields of Hatred you can find Altars of Extraction that serve this purpose.

Interact with the Altar to start the purification ritual. The Ritual takes 50 seconds to finish while monsters spawn around you and attack you. At the end of the time your Seeds of Hatred will turn into Red Dust. They belong to you now and you cannot lose them if you die. When you start the ritual though, a message will be shown on the map, informing other players in the area that you are purifying your Seeds! Players looking for PVP might attempt to attack you and steal your Seeds of Hatred, so keep your guards up!
