Where to get Crushed Beast Bones in Diablo 4

The best way to collect Crushed Beast Bones fast is by defeating two specific Elites in Diablo 4: Gaspar Stilbian and Blind Odwyn. Although both enemies drop five Crushed Beast Bones each, Gaspar is the best option for less experienced players to farm this material.

Crushed Beast Bones are an important material you need in Diablo 4

As of March 28th 2024, Gaspar Stilbian appears to scale to approximately your level - at least he sat around my level when at level 51 - and he can be found in a small area in the region Scosglen, west along the path of the Whispering Pines dungeon. This isn't too difficult a fight once all of the nearby enemies are eliminated, but at least for me, his melee attacks dealt quite a high amount of damage so I had to keep him slowed and frozen with some ice abilities and ensure I kept good distance between us.

Once eliminating him, he was dropping 2 Crushed Beast Bones, and you can easily get him to respawn too. Either wait around in the area to see if he returns, but if not, try running away and/or exiting to the character screen and reloading. Once you've taken him out three times, you'll have 6 Crushed Beast Bones, and be able to use 5 of them to craft the potion you require.

The other alternative enemy to hunt is Blind Odwyn who you can find in the southeast of The Blood Vale in the region of Scosglen. It's worth keeping in mind that he may be a more challenging enemy to fight than Gaspar, especially considering that he can also summon demons to help him from time to time.

While it might sound daunting for new players to face two Elite enemies, this is the fastest way to ensure you're dropping the Crushed Beast Bones. You can, of course, get them by killing werewolves and other beast enemies on the map, but the drop rates are considerably lower.

It's also worth keeping in mind that these materials may drop from other sources as well, and since it's an ongoing game, it's possible all of this is subject to change over time.

What Crushed Beast Bones are used for in Diablo 4

Crushed Beast Bones is a material that you inevitably are going to need in the game because it's requested to upgrade the healing potions. When you reach Level 30 you can upgrade to the Light Healing Potion which requires 20 Gallowvine, 10 Biteberry, and 5 Crushed Beast Bones.

To upgrade your potions in Diablo 4 you need to talk to the Alchemist

By talking to the Alchemist NPC, which you can find in places such as Kyovashad and Ked Bardu, you can upgrade your potions once you have reached certain levels with your character. Doing so increases the healing potency of the potions you use, making it extremely important to survive when running more difficult content.

And unfortunately the upgrades aren't shared among characters in the same account, only the materials. So it's important to farm enough Crushed Beast Bones with your main character if you want to level up others.
