Can you only find a Goblin Rift in Adventure Mode? Similarly, can treasure goblins found within Nephalem Rifts open up a Goblin Rift portal, or can only goblins found outside of Rifts open portals?

I already know that you have to be level 70, and that if a friend wants to enter they have to be nearby.

    @Samjus that'd explain it then. My version is still the previous version because I run the EU version of the game.

According to this green post, you should only be level 70 and be in Adventure mode.


Goblin Realm:

  • Spawns from random Treasure Goblins at level 70 in Adventure mode
  • Only players present when the rift spawned can enter it

Please note, that only goblins found outside of the Rift will have a chance to open a portal.


I have made it into several of these all from the same place. From what I can tell, it does not spawn inside of rifts nor in campaign mode.

The best place to find a goblin who will spawn the portal is in the Halls of Agony level 2. Take the waypoint there in adventure mode on any difficulty (difficulty affects gold drops), find the goblin, and cross your fingers. I have found the drop rate to be roughly 1 out of every 50 attempts.

Gold rates observed from the rifts (these rates include a bonus +100% from a community event).

  • Hard: 4m
  • Torment 1: 25m
  • Torment 3: 37m
  • Torment 4: 45m
  • 1
    Though note the gold rates are inflated by the 100% gold find event buff.

    Correct, and also as a result of the current community event, goblins are spawning in pairs. I will make an edit to indicate the buff.

  • Halls of Agony guaranteed spot has been fixed. Does anyone know if extra gold gear works on any of that? I recall reading a blue post that stated extra gold doesnt work on chest and urns, which is where 95% of the gold in this level comes from.

  • @Tom - HoA2 never had a single guaranteed spot, but it definitely wasn't "fixed". Sometimes the goblin is replaced by the Iron Maiden event. Extra gold gear does increase the yield of the goblin rift. I made it into one just last night, 2 man on t6 with no gold gear (still with community buff) and it was 80m.

  • @TravisJ By "definitely wasn't 'fixed'", I'm presuming you didn't see this hotfix list?
