Rift Guardians In Diablo III:

Rift Guardian Bosses show up once the player’s advancement bar has achieved 100%.  In order to get it to 100% you need to kill Blue Elites and Champions which are in Yellow. They will drop 3 yellow orbs for you to collect to get the bar to completed.

Whenever you finish a Rift Guardian they will drop certain key loots like Greater Rift Key, sometimes legendary item, and Blood Shards which are in purple.

Blood Shards: Special type of money you use to purchase high rare items, the higher the Torment level the higher loot drop on Blood Shards.

Crafting Material was added to replace just getting Veil Crystals, Reusable Parts, Arcane Dusts, and Death Breaths. Now you need to get certain crafting materials from each of the Acts in Adventure Mode.


A guaranteed drop for Greater Rift Keystone is only on Torment 6 anything below is 50%/50% on the drop rate.

Adventure Bounties played on Torment 6 is also the same guaranteed drops plus getting Blood Shards well as the crafting material for that acted
