How to Get the Ring of Mendeln in Diablo 4
If you want to build a Minion-based Necromancer in Diablo 4, you need to get the Ring of Mendeln if you want to push high-tier Nightmare Dungeons. While it is entirely possible to have a functional build without the ring, having it gives you tons of damage and allows you to scale your build better against higher-level enemies. If you are wondering how you can get your hands on the Ring of Mendeln in Diablo 4, here are some tips that can help you out.
How to target farm the Ring of Mendeln
The Ring of Mendeln is a powerful Unique that single-handedly makes Minion builds significantly stronger and endgame viable. It contributes the largest portion of damage in any Minion build that it is used in, so you definitely want to use it if you have a copy.
The effect of the ring states "While you have 7 or more Minions - Lucky Hit: Up to a 10% chance to empower all of your Minions, causing the next attack from each to explode for [120 - 36,291] Physical damage."
The ring comes with Cold Resistance, Shadow Resistance, Lucky Hit Chance, Minion Attack Speed, Maximum Minion Life and Thorns as the other stats.
Something you should know before farming for the ring is that Blizzard Entertainment is going to add a way to target farm class-specific uniques from Season 2. This is something that was officially confirmed in the first Fireside Chat of the Season. You might want to just wait it out until there’s a way to get the ring without losing your sanity in real life by relying on luck alone.
Until the change is implemented, here are some tips that can help you get the Ring of Mendeln in Diablo 4:
Running Helltides: Helltides are special events that occur in the world of Sanctuary. They feature a variety of powerful enemies and a chance to drop rare loot, including unique items. You want to open chests that contain rings, which can help you finally get the ring.
Running high-level Nightmare Dungeons: The higher the level of the dungeon, the better the chance of dropping unique items. So, if you're looking for some of the rarest uniques in the game, you should go farm Dungeons that have at least level 85 enemies. Going past that threshold is not necessary unless you are also farming for Character XP and Glyph XP.
Farm in groups: If you're farming with friends, you'll have a better chance of getting unique items. This is because each player has a chance to drop a unique item, so the more players you have in your group, the more chances you have of getting a unique drop.
Farming uniques can be a long and tedious process. So, it's important to be patient and keep farming. Eventually, you might be rewarded with the unique item you're looking for. The unfortunate thing is that you will be reliant on luck so you might get a couple of Ring of Mendelns in the next hour or you might have to wait for months.
