Sokahr the Keywarden

Sokarh spins and sparks.

Sokahr the Keywarden is a Dune Dervish Elite monster added in Patch v1.0.5. This monster can be found somewhere randomly-located in the Dahlgur Oasis level in Act Two, on Inferno difficulty. Sokahr has a chance to drop the Key of Hate, an item required for the Infernal Machine end game event.

Prior to v1.08 Sokahr and the other keywardens could be found on any difficulty level, though they only dropped keys on Inferno. In v1.08 and later the keywardens only appear on Inferno.

Sokahr always has Vortex and Missile Dampening as his Elite Affix, which gives him some resistance to ranged attackers, as well as making him easier to spot from a distance.

Key Drop Odds[edit | edit source]

The first stage in unlocking the Infernal Machine players have to gather 3 keys and a plan from all four acts by killing the Key Wardens. (An even longer and more involved process than Diablo 2â€ēs Pandemonium Event.)

The Keywardens appear in their designated areas only on Inferno difficulty. (They were found on all difficulties prior to v1.08.) If a player has 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor the keywardens may drop a key. The only way to increase the odds of a key dropping is to increase the level of Monster Power. [1] [2]

Key drop odds per Monster Power level:

  • Monster Power 0: 5%
  • Monster Power 1: 10%
  • Monster Power 2: 20%
  • Monster Power 3: 30%
  • Monster Power 4: 40%
  • Monster Power 5: 50%
  • Monster Power 6: 60%
  • Monster Power 7: 70%
  • Monster Power 8: 80%
  • Monster Power 9: 90%
  • Monster Power 10: 100%

Magic Find does not increase the chances of the keys dropping.[3] though it does affect the other items the Keywardens drop, and they can be an excellent source of Rares or Legendaries.

The four keywardens and the planwarden are:

Obtaining a Hellfire Ring[edit | edit source]

Creating a Hellfire Ring requires multiple steps. Refer to the Infernal Machine article for full details, but briefly:

  1. Obtain the three keys and the Infernal Machine plan for the Blacksmith.
    1. The Key of Destruction will drop from Odeg the Keywarden in Act I - Fields of Misery
    2. The Key of Hate will drop from Sokahr the Keywarden in Act II - Dahlgur Oasis
    3. The Key of Terror will drop from Xah'Rith the Keywarden in Act III - Stonefort
    4. The Blacksmithing Plans will drop from Nekarat the Keywarden in Act IV - Gardens of Hope 2nd Tier
  2. Craft three keys, one of each, into the Portal Device.
  3. Activate the Portal Device inside of the Heretic's Abode to create a red portal to one of the three Realms:
    1. The Realm of Discord. Battle King Leoric and Maghda for a chance to obtain the Writhing Spine.
    2. The Realm of Chaos. Battle Ghom and Rakanoth for a chance to obtain the Devil's Fang.
    3. The Realm of Turmoil. Battle Siege Breaker and Zoltun Kulle for a chance to obtain the Vengeful Eye.
  4. Take the three demonic organs to Haedrig and craft them into a Hellfire Ring.

Note that steps 1-3 must be repeated multiple times, since you must create at least three red portals to obtain all three demonic organs. Furthermore, unless you are playing on Monster Power 10, the keywardens do not always drop keys and the uber bosses do not always drop the demonic organs.
