The Caged Heart of Creeping Death is one of the most deadly Malignant Hearts in Diablo 4 and will boost the attack power of any class that specializes in Crowd Control.

However, finding it can prove difficult. There are over 32 Malignant Hearts that could potentially drop from enemies, and out of all of them, Wrathful Malignant Hearts are the most rare.

This is because of the game-changing attributes that they give your class. It’s no exaggeration to say that having one will take your builds to new levels in terms of damage.

This is why in this guide, we’ll highlight the best way to get the Caged of Creeping Death and how you could potentially add it to your build in Diablo 4.

How to Get Creeping Death Heart in Diablo 4

The best way to get the Creeping Death Heart is to find a Wrathful Malignant enemy while exploring the Malignant Tunnels of Diablo 4 Season 1 World Tier 4 that will drop the Caged Heart of Creeping Death.

It is also possible to stumble upon the Caged Heart of Creeping Death at Cormond’s Workbench by crafting the Uncertain Heart Cache.

However, this method leaves it completely up to chance, and unfortunately, the odds aren’t that great. Players have gone on to open dozens of Uncertain Heart Caches without even seeing a Wrathful Malingnat Heart, much less the specific one that they need.

Thankfully, there are useful methods that players have used to increase their odds of obtaining Wrathful Malignant Hearts to help them farm the Creeping Death Heart in Diablo 4.

  • Method 1 – Farm Malignant Tunnels in World Tier 4. Malignant Tunnels can potentially contain a Wrathful Malignant enemy that will guarantee a Wrathful Heart drop.
    • To find a Malignant Tunnel, search for the leaf icon on the dungeons of Sanctuary. Below is one we’ve personally used to farm for this Malignant Heart.

  • Method 2 – Summon a Wrathful Malignant Elite from a Wrathful Malignant Outgrowth.
    • You’ll need a Wrathful Invoker, which you can obtain as a drop from in-game activities or by chance through the Uncertain Invoker at Cormond’s Workbench.
    • Players will need to head to the end of Malignant Tunnels and find a Wrathful Malignant Outgrowth to use the Wrathful Invoker on. It seems like leaving a lot to chance, but you’ll find Invokers and Outgrowths frequently in your adventures.
  • Method 3 – Craft a Caged Heart of the Barber using an Uncertain Heart Cache.
    • Use Cormond’s Workbench in Kyovashad to craft Uncertain Heart Cache for the chance to obtain a random Malignant Heart, including the Caged Heart of Creeping Death.
    • Only use this method if you have an intense amount of extra materials because the chance of getting a Wrathful Malignant Heart is very low.

  • Method 4 – Farm the Caves of Velkhova Dungeon.
    • This dungeon is only available to players that have not completed the quest, The Cold Hard Truth.
    • You want to run this dungeon multiple times to increase the probability of running into Wrathful Malignant enemies.

We recommend using Method #1 because it allows you to farm XP, materials, and complete Season Journey challenges while also giving you a chance to get the Caged Heart of Creeping Death.

How to Craft Caged Heart of Creeping Death

Players have a small chance of crafting the Caged Heart of Creeping Death through the Uncertain Heart Cache available at Cormond’s Workbench in Kyovashad by using various Ichors.

However, keep in mind that there is only a very small chance of crafting this specific Warthful Malignant Heart. Players have expressed frustration with how low the odds are of running into a Wrathful Heart using this method.

It’s only really useful for players that are running low on time and have already farmed an absurd amount of materials.

What Does the Caged Heart of Creeping Death Do?

The Caged Heart of Creeping Death will increase the potency of your Damage Over Time effects by (32-42%) for each different Crowd Control effect on the target. Unstoppable enemies and Staggered bosses instead take (114-134%) increased damage from your Damage Over Time effects.

This gives any build that uses Crowd Control effects a huge advantage in battle. The Rogue and Necromancer are two classes that can truly use this Wrathful Malignant Heart to experiment with their builds.
