Get ready, Diablo 3 Items Collectors! Today, we’ll be discussing the first part of the quests in the first act of Diablo 3. Find out more about the main quests you have to complete and the D3 items you can loot in New Tristram whilst battling the unholy forces of the Burning Hells.
The Town of New Tristram: An Overview for Diablo 3 Items Collectors
Following the events of Diablo 2, the hub area for the first act of Diablo 3 is the town of New Tristram. New Tristram is a town in central Khanduras, built near the ruins of Old Tristram. Like its predecessor, New Tristram is believed to be accursed as it has seen its share of misfortune. The same year of Hazir’s visit, the Fallen Star crashed into an Old Cathedral where Deckard Cain and his niece Leah were investigating a threatening ancient evil that prowled about. This event caused the dead to come back to life and assault the town. For many days, the militia held the Risen at bay, until the player character—the Nephalem—arrived. Areas of New Tristram are unlockable as you complete quests and progress through the first act’s storyline.
Defeat the Risen: The Fallen Star Quest for Diablo 3 Items Collectors
The player character arrives at New Tristram to investigate the Fallen Star. As you walk towards the gates to the town, you will see Captain Rumford and his men struggling with a few Risen dead. Afterwards, he will ask you to talk to Leah in the Slaughtered Calf inn. While talking to her, the wounded in the bar will turn into zombies. Once you have dealt with them, Leah will direct you back to Captain Rumford.
Hunt down the Wretched Mothers: The Fallen Star Quest for Diablo 3 Items Collectors
Before continuing on, you might want to stock up on a few D3 items. Otherwise, return to the town gates, right past the Mr. Meat Wagon. A barricade near Captain Rumford will be broken down by some Risen spawned by a grotesque-looking Wretched Mother. A Wretched Mother is capable of spawning more zombies from her vomit. First, kill the Wretched Mother north of the gate. When you get to the more open area of the Old Tristram Road, you should see red markers on the mini map, meaning you are close by the Wretched Mother. There are three of these northeast of New Tristram.
Kill the Queen: The Fallen Star Quest for Diablo 3 Items Collectors
Once you’ve successfully killed the three Wretched Mothers, carry on along the road to the Old Ruins for the Wretched Queen. While exploring the map for loot and possible early drops for Diablo 3 Legendary items, you will encounter spawns such as the Quill Fiend, more Risen, and Walking Corpses. Much like Wretched Mothers, the Wretched Queen is able to vomit up zombies; however, she has higher hit points and can summon zombies faster. After defeating the Wretched Queen, take the Waypoint back to New Tristram and speak with Captain Rumford. You may now go back to the Slaughtered Calf to talk to Leah and earn The Legacy of Cain quest.
