Do the items drop only in level 70 rifts? Or do they drop everywhere after finishing a level 70 rift?

1 Answer 1


From the patch notes for Update 2.5:

Note: Primal Ancients will only begin dropping after a character on the player’s account has reached Greater Rift 70 Solo

So you must complete a solo 70 greater rift to unlock the chance for them to drop, but they can drop from any source (regular loot drops/bounty caches/upgrade through the cube, even Kadala!) This must be done for each game type (once for Hardcore, Softcore, and Season/Nonseason of each of those).

I can personally attest to getting a primal from Kadala (gambling with blood shards). Now my Templar has a real nice Freeze of Deflection.

And here is video evidence of the cube creating one as well.

  • Yes. This weekend Kadala gave my monk a primal ancient crusader shield.

  • @ceving Oh what? Does Kadala drop off-class-specifics now?

  • @OrcJMR No my fault. I got it from a bounty chest.
