4-2 Hell Rift 01

Hell Rift entrance portal

Hell Rifts
are two small dungeons that can be found in Gardens of Hope in Act IV of Diablo III.

In Campaign Mode, it is two separate dungeons, each one level, but in Adventure Mode, it is a single two-level dungeon. Each Hell Rift is guaranteed to have a Super Unique Mallet Lord guarding it.

Inside there are Rift Oculi, which sustain the portals leading to High Heavens. Through the Rifts, demons from the Realm of Terror send reinforcements to assault the Gardens of Hope.

Hell Rifts may appear as a layout for Nephalem Rifts.

These dungeons are very dangerous for Hardcore characters, because combat often starts immediately after you enter the red portal. In other words, demons will have a chance to attack the player before the level is even fully loaded.

In Adventure Mode, this zone has two levels.
