The latest season of Diablo 4 is out, which means the tier list of Nightmare dungeons is important to consider as you make your way through Sanctuary levelling up and XP farming. Some of these dungeons are better than others, so keep reading to find out which ones will be the most successful for you.

The game has plenty of builds for you to try across the range of classes, with some allowing you to gain XP faster than others. However, some classes also excel in certain situations, such as being in a group or being in an AoE situation. 

Here are the best Nightmare Dungeons for farming in Diablo 4 Season 2, and here is how to stop the Blood Harvest in Diablo 4 Season 2.

To access Nightmare Dungeons in Diablo 4 Season of Blood you will need the corresponding Nightmare Sigil. These are consumables you can find in the game by completing Whispers of the Dead bounties in World Tier 3: Nightmare and Nightmare Dungeons. You'll also be given more Sigils as a reward for completing the Nightmare Dungeon.

From here, you need to salvage the Nightmare Sigils at the Occultist. For more on the new season, check out our guide to all pacts in Diablo 4 Season 2.
