Diablo 4 Crushed Beast Bones can be farmed by killing beasts out in the wild and repeatedly running Cellars to get crafting materials. These Crushed Beast Bones don't have many uses in Diablo 4, but you'll want to do this if you're desperate for the Light Healing Potion upgrade that is unlocked at Level 30. Since they're a Magic-rarity crafting material, Crushed Beast Bones aren’t especially common, but with the right farming method and a bit of luck, you should be able to gather up enough of them. Here’s how you can farm Crushed Beast Bones in Diablo 4 and use them to upgrade your healing potions.

Diablo 4 Crushed Beast Bones are a Monster Part that has a chance to drop after killing beasts, animals, and werebeasts – pretty much anything that isn’t obviously a demon or a human – or from various sources of random materials, such as Cellars, Dungeons, and bosses. You can check how many of these beast bones you have in your ‘Stats and Materials’ inventory menu.

While you can go out slaughtering the horrific wildlife of Sanctuary to try and get Crushed Beast Bones, the drop rate appears to be pretty low. A good alternative method is to try repeating Cellars over and over as the chests found at the end of these micro-dungeons usually spit out a crafting material. In fact, on my first run of the Flooded Mine Cellar between Margrave and Yelesna, I got five Crushed Beast Bones.

For a reasonably quick Crushed Beast Bones farm, I recommend repeatedly clearing the Flooded Mine and Hermit’s Abode Cellars to the east and west of Margrave respectively – clear one Cellar, teleport to Margrave, then clear the other Cellar, teleport back to Margrave, and repeat. The regions southeast of Kyovashad are generally pretty good for finding Cellars, so I’ve marked a bunch of them on the map above.

Note: You might have seen that a boss found in Scosglen called Gaspar Stilbian could be repeatedly farmed to get five Crushed Beast Bones, however, this appears to have been patched. Repeatedly killing him is no longer a worthwhile method of farming Crushed Beast Bones, but hitting Cellars is a good alternative and will get you plenty of other loot and XP along the way.

Once you’ve got the Diablo 4 Crushed Beast Bones, fast travel back to the nearest city and speak to the Alchemist there. Assuming you’ve gathered up the other ingredients and are Level 30, you can spend your Crushed Beast Bones on the Light Healing Potion upgrade.
