Learn about the Sigil Powder required to craft each level of Nightmare Sigils in Diablo 4 to open up those challenging Nightmare Dungeons.

As Diablo 4 players venture into the endgame activities, they will likely want to know how to craft more Nightmare Sigils and the Sigil Powder and Gold cost for each tier, so they can get that perfect Nightmare Dungeon runs down.

In this guide, we explain how you can craft Nightmare Sigils, their material costs per tier, what World Tier difficulty level they require, and the number of affixes you can expect when you jump into this endgame activity, so let’s get started.

How To Craft Nightmare Sigils & Get Sigil Powder

You can craft Nightmare Sigils at the Occultist. This ability opens up after you’ve completed the campaign and entered World Tier 3 (Nightmare) difficulty following the completion of the Cathedral of Light Capstone dungeon. 

To get Sigil Powder to craft Nightmare Sigils in Diablo 4, you will need to salvage unwanted Sigils at the Occultist in the “Salvage” tab. It is as simple as that, but the material costs and different Nightmare Dungeon Sigil tiers are definitely not…

Diablo 4 Nightmare Sigils Material Costs, Tiers & Powder

Nightmare Sigils are quite complicated, as there are 20 Sacred tiers and 80 Ancestral tiers. With every five tiers, the crafting costs in terms of Gold and Sigil Powder go up. Each batch has a bit of RNG; for example, if you craft a Nightmare Sigil for tier 1-5, you’ll receive a random one in this range.

As you progress through the Nightmare Sigil tiers, creating higher-level ones, they will also add more random Nightmare Dungeon affixes into the mix, up to a maximum of five. Thanks to the data gathered by Maxroll.gg, we’ve got two tables below detailing the Sigil Powder/Gold cost, the Nightmare Sigil details, and their respective tier levels.
