Player versus player combat, or PvP for short, is a major feature in Diablo 4. Of course, players can choose whether or not to participate in PvP, as it’s a totally optional feature within the game. If some fans want to stick solely with the main story and PvE elements of Diablo 4, they are completely free to do so. However, those that want to venture into PvP will need to head to the Fields of Hatred in Sanctuary. This is a part of the world map in Diablo 4 and it’s solely where PvP takes place. The Fields of Hatred are located in the Dry Steppes region of the map and are found just north of the desert of Kehjistan. If you want to learn more about what goes on in the Fields of Hatred and exactly how PvP works in Diablo 4, you have come to the right place.

How PvP works in Diablo 4

As previously mentioned, you can find the Fields of Hatred in the southern part of the Dry Steppes region (as seen in the screenshot below). You can enter the fields in one of three paths and there is also a town waypoint found in the northwestern part of the area. We recommend visiting and capturing this waypoint as soon as possible so it’s easier to fast travel between the area and other parts of the map.

Right next to the waypoint in the town, you will see that a new Priority Quest icon has appeared to your left. Talk to the man with the icon over his head, and he will introduce you to the Seeds of Hatred and PvP. Basically, Seeds of Hatred is a currency that is only found within the Fields of Hatred. It is obtained through killing mobs, bosses in the area, chests, and other events. When you leave the Fields of Hatred, all of the Seeds of Hatred you have will be purged, meaning you no longer have them. You can keep track of how many you have by looking at the counter to the left of your mini-map.
