A Pearl of Warding is a Rare Currency that was introduced during the Season of the Construct, which is used to receive Zoltun’s Warding.
Zoltun’s Warding is a buff that continuously stacks and later is consumed to provide you with loot when you are in one of the Vaults.
This resource is the key to farming endgame loot as well as rare upgrades for your Seneschal Companion for the remainder of the season.
How To Get Pearl of Warding?
This will summon a Herald of Malphas, which you will need to defeat to get loot, which includes a Pearl of Warding.
Completing Vaults will also reward you with Pearls of Warding, allowing you to continuously farm Vaults once you have a good supply of them.
Pearl of Warding Farming
There are two ways to farm Pearls of Warding, which begin with farming the Brazier activities until you have enough of them to get you going.
Next, you will need to complete Vaults, which may allow you to obtain more Pearls of Warding, allowing you to repeat Vaults again and again if you are lucky.
These are the two ways known to farm this resource, making one better than the other depending on if you have the means to grind whichever activity is available.
Best Place to Farm Pearl of Warding
Once you have gotten a few Pearls of Warding, the best way you can get more is to keep grinding Vaults as these provide you with a lot of loot.
Opening the Vault Coffer in the room where you find the Wardwoven Chest will provide you with more Pearls of Warding.
If you have not been able to do successful Vault runs, you will need to grab more Pearls of Warding by doing Brazier activities.
Pearl of Warding Uses
Pearls of Warding are used at the Statue of Zoltun Kulle, which provides you with Zoltun’s Warding, a buff that needs to remain on your character until you complete the dungeon.
Completing the Vault (Dungeon) while having a certain amount of charges will allow you to open the Wardwoven Chest at the end of the dungeon. (Charges are lost when you are hit by traps)
This will provide you with a lot of loot, which may include high-rarity items and more Pearls of Warding to continue grinding Vaults.
Completing Vaults is considered to be one of the endgame activities for the Season of the Construct, which is meant to get you better gear and upgrade your Seneschal Companion.
While going through the traps can sometimes be difficult, you can always get multiple Zoltun’s Warding buffs as each Pearl of Warding used on the Statue of Zoltun Kulle Provides you with 3.
You can use multiple Pearls of Warding until you are confident enough to go through the Vault with just one set of the buff. (You can always return to the statue to get more if you run out.
