Diablo 4 can sometimes feel like a never-ending race to discover the most lucrative exp dungeon before it becomes popular and is swiftly nerfed. However, Sirocco Caverns might just withstand the test of time. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to locate the Sirocco Caverns dungeon in Diablo 4, along with tips on obtaining the powerful Aspect of Echoing Fury.
Finding Sirocco Caverns in Diablo 4
Some dungeons are more accessible than others, and Sirocco Caverns falls into the category of being a little elusive. It is nestled within the Scouring Sands region of Kehjistan, right on the border of the Dry Steppes. The closest waypoint is the quaint town of Jirandai, which lies southeast of the Dry Steppes Fields of Hatred.
The Benefits of Sirocco Caverns: Enemies and Aspect of Echoing Fury
Sirocco Caverns offers two primary attractions: a plethora of enemies to vanquish and the coveted Aspect of Echoing Fury. This Aspect holds great value for Whirlwind Barbarians who seek to maximize their Fury generation.
The Aspect of Echoing Fury boasts the following effect:
- Your Shout skills generate [2.0-4.0] Fury per second while active.
To fully harness the power of the Aspect of Echoing Fury, it is recommended to pair it with the Defensive skills Rallying Cry and Challenging Shout. It’s important to note that this aspect can only be imprinted on rings.
Tips for Completing Sirocco Caverns
Before delving into the depths of this dungeon, it is advisable to consume a Poison Resistance elixir or an Elixir of Beast-Slaying. These elixirs provide protection against the abundant poison damage you will encounter in Sirocco Caverns. Additionally, the Elixir of Beast-Slaying grants a 5% experience boost, a delightful bonus to aid you on your journey. Expect to encounter Toxic Lurkers (spiders), Plague Maggots, and Arachnid Horrors, and these elixirs will prove invaluable in countering their threats.
Stage 1: Destroy the Silken Spires
Upon entering Sirocco Caverns, your initial task is to obliterate three Silken Spires scattered throughout the floor. These spires are guarded by Plague Maggots and Toxic Lurkers. As you embark on your search, be prepared to face a group of three Elites, a thrilling encounter with the only “wild” elites in this level.
Once you locate a Silken Spire, reminiscent of a towering stack of spider eggs, promptly initiate damage. Beware, for the spire will periodically unleash poison attacks and spawn additional mobs once it loses one-third of its health. When the Silken Spire reaches its final third of health, brace yourself for the appearance of a formidable Matriarch Elite Toxic Lurker.
The barrier blocking your progress will crumble as soon as all three Silken Spires are reduced to rubble.
Stage 2: Travel to the Corrupted Sands
Following the destruction of the Silken Spires, a scarlet barrier on the map that had hindered your path will dissipate. Consult your map to locate a pulsating circle, signifying the newly opened door. You will encounter two paths, but rest assured, both routes lead to the same destination.
Stage 3: Slay the Spider Callers
As you traverse the subsequent floor, diligently search for the Spider Caller Mini-Boss, conveniently marked by a giant skull on your mini-map. This level boasts the highest concentration of elites surrounding the Spider Caller. In the first section alone, I encountered a total of eight elites, followed by a mini-boss named Rakoshan Peacestopper, a Fallen Overseer accompanied by Suppressor, Plaguebearer, and Terrifying.
Proceeding beyond this mini-boss, you will enter the second section, where an additional eight Elite enemies await. Once all adversaries, including the Spider Caller, are vanquished, the dungeon will be deemed complete, and your diligent efforts will be rewarded with the Aspect of Echoing Fury.
In total, this dungeon houses a minimum of 24 Elite enemies, making it an excellent location for farming experience. And where there’s ample experience to be gained, there’s also a higher chance of obtaining unique weapons.
