How to Get The Grandfather in Diablo 4

Your gear has a huge role to play when it comes to how strong your character can be in Diablo 4.  Each gear you equip has its own set of statistics that help you strengthen your current build.

While some items might be pretty common as you see them almost every day, some could be extremely rare. The item we are talking about today is none other than the rarest Two-Handed weapon in the game, “The Grandfather“.

This weapon is so rare that until now users thought that it never existed in the game until the devs themselves confirmed it. And we finally have the first drop in the entire world.

How to Get The Grandfather in Diablo 4

The Grandfather is a Two-Handed Unique Ancestral Sword that gives a crazy amount of Critical Strike Damage buff (almost about 60-100 %). Imagine doubling the critical damage you are currently landing on enemies.

If you actually have a critical build, then this weapon would literally make you a God in the game. Any character who can wield a two-handed sword would be able to use this weapon.

However, the drop rate for this thing is less than 1% and we do not really know exactly where to look for it. This is why I will be helping you with a quick guide on increasing your chances of finding “The Grandfather”.

  • The only drop we have in the entire world came from a Helltide event. The user opened a Two-Handed weapon 150-cinder chest and was lucky enough to get this item. Helltide XP was buffed a few days ago and now we are confirmed that it can even drop you the Grandfather.
  • You need to be in World Tier 4 Torment difficulty. That is the only way you have access to Ancestral drops in the game.
  • Another way you can increase your chances of getting unique items is through a Magic Find Nightmare Sigil.  Not every Nightmare Dungeon could have a sigil. All you need to do is use the Sigil Powder that you have got and craft Nightmare Dungeon Sigils having Magic Find (in green) as a buff. This will significantly increase the drop rate of unique and legendary items in the dungeon.
  • You need to play against enemy level 85 or higher. There is almost no chance of finding this item when you are fighting enemies below 85 level. The higher the level of enemies the better the drop rate of rare items.

There you go, that is all you need to know about finding the rarest two-handed sword in Diablo 4, “The Grandfather”.
