Living Steel is a material introduced in Diablo 4 Season 2 that’s required to summon the new endgame boss, Grigoire.
There are plenty of reasons for you to hunt down Living Steel, especially as Season 2 now makes it easier than ever to target farm Unique items by defeating endgame bosses.
However, getting your hands on Living Steel can be a little tricky.
Below, we go over where to find and how to get Living Steel. We also explain how to summon the Grigoire endgame boss so you can farm Uniques in Diablo 4!
Where to Find Living Steel in Diablo 4 Season 2
You can find Living Steel by opening Tortured Gifts of Living Steel chests during Helltide events in Diablo 4 Season 2.
Tortured Gifts of Living Steel is a new type of Tortured Gift of Mystery chest that was introduced in Season 2. It’s the only way you can get Living Steel.
Like all Types of Tortured Gifts chests, Tortured Gifts of Living Steel can only be found during Helltide events and will appear randomly at set locations when a Helltide is taking place. You can only access Helltides in World Tiers 3 & 4.

Do note, these chests only appear on your map when you are close to them. You’ll need to explore the area of a Helltide and look out for the above icon to pop up on your map.
