Diablo 3 Altar of Rites Standard

The new Altar of Rites of Season 28 in Diablo 3 is the Seasonal Theme. Here we show you the seals, powers, potion powers and the costs.

What is this altar? Season 28 of Diablo 3 is called “Rites of Sanctuary”. The new altar is like a big skill tree where you can unlock different powers by paying for materials.

In this overview we want to show you everything you need to know about the altar so that you can use it correctly.

  • You can interact with the Altar of Rites directly from level 1
  • You see 26 symbols (seals) and 3 potions
  • After you have chosen the first seal, you can decide for yourself which way to continue your skilling
  • Once you’ve unlocked a sigil, you’ll immediately receive the power or boosted potion

The Great Reward – Wings of Terror

That is the big goal: If you have obtained all the materials and thus unlocked the 26 seals and 3 potions, you will receive a great reward:

  • The Wings of Terror, Seal AD

So if the cosmetic wings are important to you, you have one goal in mind for a long time in the season. Sometimes you have to farm for a really long time for the materials of the seals and be advanced in the season to meet the requirements.

How do you like the seasonal theme of Season 28? Do you think the developers have succeeded or is something bothering you at the Altar of Rites?
