Diablo, 4 Season 1, introduced a new boss to the world of Sanctuary, and players can fight it multiple times if they use the Malignant Item, Invoker of Varshan.

The Invoker of Varshan is a tool that summons an Echo of Varshan for players to fight to earn drops and rewards.

However, there is only one place you can use it, and we’re here to tell you exactly how to find it.

How & Where to Use Invoker of Varshan

To use the Invoker of Varshan to summon an Echo of Varshan, players will need to complete Malignant Tunnel Dungeon in World Tier 1 or 2, find the Wooden Door, and use the Invoker on a Monsterous Outgrowth.

The Wooden Door has a random chance of appearing in any Malignant Tunnel, but we found that it appeared more consistently in the Ravening Pit Malignant Tunnel shown in the map below.

The Wooden Door will appear the same in every dungeon. It will have a slight glow and chains around it. Players can find Malignant Tunnel dungeons by looking for dungeon icons with this seasonal event leaf on them.

It is important that players are in World Tier 1 or 2 because it will not work otherwise. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to activate the Invoker of Varshan in Diablo 4 Season 1:

  1. After arriving at the Malignant Tunnel, you must first complete the dungeon to open up the path behind the final objective.
    • This will complete the Dungeon and allow you to progress further into the tunnels.
  2. With the dungeon completed, continue on the path down the tunnel until you find a wooden door with chains.
    • The layout of the tunnels is randomized each time you enter them, but there is always a crossroads that appears shortly after you enter the path.
      • One path will lead you to the normal masses where you can use Wrathful and Brutal Invokers.
      • The other path will lead you to the chained Wooden Door you need to use for the Invoker of Varshan. This door is always near a Healing Well.
  3. Open the door, and you will find the room with a mass that you can use the Invoker of Varshan on.
    • As soon as you enter the room, you’ll trigger an event for the Echo of Varshan. But the boss won’t appear until you interact with the mass.
  4. Interact with the Monsterous Outgrowth while carrying the Invoker of Varshan, and it will summon an Echo of Varshan.

Where to Find Invoker of Varshan

Players will obtain the recipe to craft the Invoker of Varshan from Cormond after completing the final Season of the Malignant quest, A Merciful Fate.

After this, you can craft an Invoker of Varshan at Cormond’s Workbench using:

  • Brutal Malignant Invoker x1
  • Vicious Malignant Invoker x1
  • Devious Malignant Invoker x1
  • Demon’s Heart x1

The easiest workbench to find in-game is the one located in Kyovashad, slightly west of the Waypoint. On your map, it will appear as a table with a small leaf icon on the right side.

How to Use Invoker of Varshan in World Tier 3 & 4

To use the Invoker of Varshan in World Tier 3 and 4, you’ll need to obtain the recipes for the Foul Invoker of Varshan and the Tormented Invoker of Varshan.

  • Foul Invoker of Varshan Recipe – Used in World Tier 3
    • Obtained after defeating Echo of Varshan in World Tier 2.
  • Tormented Invoker of Varshan Recipe – Used in World Tier 4
    • Obtained after defeating Echo of Varshan in World Tier 3.

You can access the mass for both of these fights in any of the Malignant Tunnels, similar to the regular Invoker of Varshan.
