Pylons appear in Nephalem Rifts and appear to basically be a souped up version of the shrines, but last for less time. So far I have seen stones that:

  • Provide damage immunity
  • Boost damage output 400%
  • Make me a giant power plant that electrocutes and kills everything in my path

Are there any others?

There are 5 pylon types:

  1. Shield - Impervious to damage for 30 seconds.
  2. Conduit - Lightning zaps your surroundings for 30 seconds. (Does a LOT of damage)
  3. Power - All attacks do +400% damage for 30 seconds.
  4. Speed - Maximum run speed for 30 seconds.
  5. Channeling - All resource costs and are removed for 30 seconds and cooldown is vastly decreased.

    Conduit is absolutely devastating. If you're playing on higher difficulties, you can use conduit and take out elite packs/bosses in seconds. My first time I found one, I had just cleared out the last of the champions and the boss, was so disappointed.

  • I think Speed Pylon gives a fixed bonus, over max, to move speed "maximum run speed for 30 seconds" seems misleading. You move even faster still when using certain skills while under speed pylon. Just a thought. Apr 2, 2014 at 15:25
  • Conduit truly is devestating. It was so exciting this first time I activated one and just sprinted through and entire level!

    Conduit + Nemesis bracers are really good :P

  • Speed Pylon puts my monk at 100%, with 25% base. Not sure if it adds onto other things.
