For today’s guide on quests players will take on while hunting D3 items, we will cover two quests. First is the Sword of the Stranger and the next is the Broken Blade. The quests involve the retrieval and subsequent repair of a powerful blade.
Diablo 3 items from Sword of the Stranger
Collectors of Diablo 3 items will get the Sword of the Stranger quest from Deckard Cain. They will then need to head to the Fields of Misery and look for the Khazra Den. The level will be crawling with Plague Carriers, Wood Wraiths, Savage Beasts, Moon Clan Warriors and Burrowing Leapers. Inside the den you will find a Glowing Sword Shard protected by several mobs and Maghda. Note that the latter summons Enraged Zealots. Urik the Seer is also present in the den and will summon Hellions. Dispose of these mobs and their minions. Once the coast is clear, grab the Glowing Sword Shard and return it to Deckard Cain. He will then give you the Broken Blade quest.
Hunting Diablo 3 items in the Festering Woods
After completing the previous quest, players will be tasked to head into the Drowned Temple to retrieve another part of the blade. Use the waypoint in town to quickly head to the Fields of Misery. As you come near the Old Mill the Scoundrel will ask you for your help. Rescue his friend Sasha from Nigel Cutthroat and his thieving cronies and the Scoundrel will offer to follow you.
Push forward and you will meet Alaric, the guardian of the temple. He will raise a bridge letting you into the Festering Woods. He will also task you with retrieving two beacons. The Beacon of Honor can be obtained from the Warrior’s Nest while the Beacon of Light is found in the Crypt of the Ancients. Get them and place them on the pedestals near Alaric to gain access to the Drowned Temple.
Retrieving Diablo 3 items and a sword shard
Inside the Drowned Temple players will have to fight Ezek the Prophet in their quest for Diablo 3 legendary items. Players will also need to defeat three unique mobs: Karel, Larel and Moek. Note that defeating them with one hit each will unlock the Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck achievement.
After the mobs, Alaric will appear again. Talk to him and head on to face Maghda. Defeat her and her Dark Zealots to get the Glowing Sword Shard from her. Return this to the Stranger in Tristram to finish the Broken Blade quest.
