Thse dungeons include, the Ancient Pyre, Karyna’s Lost Wagon, Lyceum, Abandoned Servant House, Cave of the Moon Clan and Watch Tower.
Hunting Monsters on your Diablo 3 Account
As the Southern Highlands is pretty far into the level, Diablo 3 players can find a lot of monsters here. If you buy D3 account, you may want to go here for experience and loot. Among the monsters you’ll find in the level are Dark Moon Clan members. This includes Ghosts, Impalers, Shamans and Warriors. There are also Burrowing Leapers, Dark Cultists, Ghostly Khazra Spearman. Players can also encounter Highland Walkers, Moon Clan Ghosts, Moon Clan Impaler, and Savage Beasts. Lastly, you will also fight Spectral Khazra Shaman, Vicious Hellion and Withermoth while exploring this level.
The monsters above have their superunique versions. These are good sources of rare equipment and more gold and experience. Players can encounter Buras the Impaler, Cadhul the Deathcaller, Gharbad, Logrut the Warrior, Lorzak the Powerful, Nalghban the Foul and Skehlinrath. Note that most of them are the targets of Bounties.
Checkpoints for Diablo 3 Account Holders
Checkpoints are the game’s way of quickly saving your progress. In the Southern Highlands level there are two Checkpoints. The first is when you find Karyna’s Lost Wagon. The next Checkpoint is triggered when you open the Khazra Barricade.
Travel to this level from a town is also sped up as the level has a Waypoint. Note that while a Waypoint is guaranteed, it will not always be in the same place for each game.
