1. Complete an Abyss Guide

Abysses are interactable objects in instances which spawns cracks and pits that spawn monsters. Abysses start spawning in acts Act 6 and onwards and in maps. They have a 10% chance to spawn in each of these instances. Abysses are marked on the minimap with a green icon.

Upon walking over an Abyss, a crack will form on the ground, and a small number of monsters will spawn out of it. The crack will expand as you follow it. The crack will eventually spawn a pit, which spawns many more monsters, including rare monsters. If the player takes too long to follow the crack into a pit or kill most of the enemies that spawn from the pit, it will close up. Otherwise, it will create another crack that leads to a different pit. An Abyss will normally create three or four pits, but since the cracks can't cross themselves or each other, the Abyss may end prematurely if it works itself into a corner.

Clearing the enemies out of the last pit will spawn an Abyssal Trove, which can be opened for loot. In addition to generic loot, an Abyssal Trove will always contain at least one Abyss jewel, possibly more.

In zone levels 70 and up, instead of an Abyssal Trove, it may open an entrance to the Abyssal Depths instead.

  • Rare Abyss Jewels that drop from Abyssal Troves now use the well-rolled modifier system.
  • Added several new Abyss Jewel modifiers. Various existing Abyss Jewel modifiers have also been updated. Please read the Abyss Jewel Balance section for more information.

3. Abyss Rewards

3.1 Abyss Jewels

Abyss jewels have the same functions as regular jewels, but with some differences. They offer different types of bonuses from regular jewels and most mods have tiers that depend on item level. They can be socketed in the jewel slot of the passive skill tree, but also in items with an abyss socket, such as a Stygian Vise and unique Abyss items.

3.2 Stygian Vise

Stygian Vise is a belt with an abyssal socket as an implicit, allowing it to equip abyss jewels. Stygian Vises can only be found in the Abyssal Depths, which are dropped from the area's boss.

3.3 Abyssal Depths

Abyssal Depths is a side zone that can spawn in Abysses in zone levels 70 and up. It contain Abyss monsters. The boss in this area is either a Stygian Spire or an Abyssal Lich, the latter which drops unique items.

4. Zana League Mods

6. How to find Abyss?

Abysses start spawning in acts Act 6 and onwards and in maps. They have a 10% chance to spawn in each of these instances. Abysses are marked on the minimap with a green icon:

Abyss Green Icon

Upon walking over an Abyss, a crack will form on the ground, and a small number of monsters will spawn out of it. The crack will expand as you follow it. The crack will eventually spawn a pit, which spawns many more monsters, including rare monsters.

Abyss Crack

Abyss Time Limited

If the player takes too long to follow the crack into a pit or kill most of the enemies that spawn from the pit, it will close up. Otherwise, it will create another crack that leads to a different pit. An Abyss will normally create three or four pits, but since the cracks can’t cross themselves or each other, the Abyss may end prematurely if it works itself into a corner.

Complete the Abyss

Clearing the enemies out of the last pit will spawn an Abyssal Trove, which can be opened for loot. In addition to generic loot, an Abyssal Trove will always contain at least one Abyss jewel, possibly more.

Abyss Trove

In zone levels 70 and up, instead of an Abyssal Trove, it may open an entrance to the Abyssal Depths instead.
