In Diablo 4, you'll find countless shrines that give you a bonus to certain stats. So that you don't miss them in the huge open world, we'll show you how to find them and what bonuses await you.

What is it about? In Diablo 4 you can find shrines everywhere in the game world, which temporarily give you certain abilities. Often they help you to cross areas. To make sure you don't miss any of these shrines, we'll tell you everything you need to know about them:

  • What are shrines anyway?
  • How and where can you find shrines in Diablo 4?
  • List of all shrines in the game world & their bonuses.

What Are Shrines in Diablo 4?


Shrines work in the following way: they are clickable structures that temporarily boost your character. Every single Shrine has a notable boost, but the primary one is a 35% buff to the Movement Speed. Even though every Shrine lasts only 30 seconds, it provides valuable bonuses that significantly increase your battle effectiveness. Moreover, you can increase the Shrines’ duration by 10% using affixes. 

If you played previous Diablo games, note that there is one significant change. In Diablo 4, Shrines provide buffs only for a single player. If you play with friends or your clanmates, each of you should click on the Shrine to get your stat’s increase. How to Find Shrines in Diablo 4

We don’t know the particular locations where you can find Shrines like it was in previous Diablo games, but Shrines are likely to be spawned in Dungeons and other calm areas with tons of enemies. That is, dozens of shrines should be scattered all around the map. All Shrines will be marked on your map if you're near them.
