There are a plethora of new features to discover in Season 1 of Diablo 4. One of the new items you can get your hands on are Malignant Invokers. During Season of the Malignant, a curse is spreading across Sanctuary called the Malignant. If you’re interesting in farming Caged Hearts, you’ll want to get some Malignant Invokers. We’ll explain how to get Malignant Invokers in Diablo 4 Season 1.
Diablo 4 Season 1: Where to get Malignant Invokers
Malignant Invokers are a new type of consumable that allow you to prioritize which type of Cages Hearts you’re looking to farm. How you get Malignant Invokers in Diablo 4 Season 1 is by crafting them, or from enemy drops.
You’ll first need to start the Season of the Malignant questline to get yourself some Malignant Invokers. Either wait for enemies to drop some, or craft them yourself at Cormond’s Workbench. During this three-month-long Season event, you can farm up to 32 different Caged Hearts. Out of those 32 are four different types of Caged Hearts.
- Vicious Heart: Orange, offensive power
- Brutal Heart: Blue, defensive power
- Devious Heart: Pink, utility power
- Wrathful Heart: Black, super power
After getting a Caged Heart or two from Malignant Tunnels, you can slot them into jewelry Sockets for some extra abilities and armor. If you’re itching for a specific type of Malignant Heart—which you convert into a Caged Heart—use a Malignant Invoker when farming. But how exactly do you use an Invoker?
- Enter a Malignant Tunnel matching your Malignant Invoker type
- Complete the Dungeon after killing all enemies and bosses
- Follow new path in the Dungeon that leads to Malignant Outgrowths
- Interact with Malignant Outgrowth that correlates with your same type of Malignant Invoker
- Defeat the boss that spawns and takes the Caged Heart
Sadly, you have to wait until you finish the Malignant Tunnel even to get to the Outgrowths. You’ll quickly notice a new tunnel entrance towards the designated area. After you interact with an Outgrowth of the same type as your Invoker, it will automatically consume it.
