What Is the Quickest Way to Get Petrified Screams in Diablo 3?

In order to farm Petrified Screams in Diablo 3, you will need to be at least level 70. This is because you need to do Greater Rift raids, and the level requirement cannot be avoided in the game. There are no cheeses or glitches that we know of to get around this, so until you grind to that level you will be unable to access the raid. However, once you’ve done that, try to complete Greater Rift runs as fast as possible.

Level 90 Greater Rifts are actually the best to find Petrified Screams, since this level balances out the difficulty of enemies you’re fighting with the amount of items that you can get in the run. Since you won’t have to spend as much time on it to earn items as the harder levels, you’ll find yourself and your team are spending less time on collecting them than you would in a higher level, even if there are less items that drop on the ninetieth level compared to others.

The drop rate for Petrified Screams to appear in the loot pool are random, which means you may need to try for a bit in order to get them. The rate is around 5% for Petrified Screams to drop, however that could go even lower to the Primal rate drop. Once you get Petrified Screams though, you will be able to enter Echoing Nightmares by dropping one into Kanai’s Cube and opening a portal. Good luck in your quest to obtain Petrified Screams in Diablo 3!
