"A dark, destructive force threatens the Gardens of Hope, creatures made of equal parts mayhem and destruction. Harness their devastating might, or fall at the hands of the Punishers."

- Map description(src)


Infernal Shrines is a three-lane Diablo-themed battleground featuring three shrines that will periodically gather power. Teams can unleash this power by activating a shrine, defeating its guardians, and summoning a devastating Punisher to fight for them. These powerful bosses will spawn with one of three deadly affixes—Arcane, Frozen, or Mortar— and will hunt down nearby enemy heroes as well as pushing the lane closest to their shrine.[1]
