Diablo 3 Challenges Guide – How To Complete Every Challenge


In Diablo 3, players would be able to complete a number of challenges for achievements, Achievement Points, and certain rewards. All these challenges are available during the four acts of the game.

I have tried to divide all these challenges in accordance to their respective Acts. I have also mentioned a brief description of the challenge, what you need to do to earn the achievement, and any other rewards. (Optional)

Diablo 3 Challenges

Act-I

Instant Karma
Description: Have the Skeleton King kill 15 of his own skeletons before killing him.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points and a Banner Sigil.
How to Complete: Skeleton King will summon skeletons to fight along with him. And he will also damage them during his wind-whirl attack. Set up your timing to lurk those skeletons to him when he is about to execute that attack.

Don’t Stand in the Fire
Description: Kill the Butcher without being injured by the floor fire or the boss’ ancient spear attack on Hell or Inferno difficulty.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: You will know when the floor will set on fire by looking at the color of the floor. When the floor starts changing its color to red; dash to another floor.

A Brief Butchering
Description: In Inferno difficulty, kill the Butcher in under 2 minutes.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: This challenge is pretty straight forward to complete. All you are required to do is to kill the Butcher under 2 minutes time-frame.

Stunning Reversal
Description: On Nightmare, Hell or Inferno difficulty, kill the Butcher during its dizzy animation after it rams itself into a wall.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: To complete this challenge, you must kill the Butcher after he is stunned. It is a good idea to give it a try on lowest difficulty setting. Do a good amount of damage and when he stuns himself; dash to him for a final strike.

Gatecrasher
Description: After speaking to Captain Rumford at the gate of New Tristam, kill all the attacking zombies in under 15 seconds.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: Just as you start the game, dash towards the area where the town is being attacked by zombies and kill as many as you can to complete this challenge.

Cut Off the Head
Description: Kill the Headcleaver before killing any of the Royal Henchmen who guard him in Leoric’s Passage.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Point and a Banner Accent
How to Complete: I wouldn’t recommend completing this on the lowest difficulty setting as the Royal Henchmen will be very to kill. Concentrate your attention on the Headcleaver and you will complete in no time!

Till Death Do Us Part
Description: Let Haedrig Eamon stike the killing blow on his wife.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: Do as much damage as you can but when it comes to the final strike; let Haedrig Eamon deliver that to complete the challenge.

Destroyer of Destiny
Description: Destroy all four pillars in the Royal Crypts in one attack.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: Try completing this on a lower difficulty setting and make sure to level up and buy some decent items before taking on the pillars.

Jars of Destruction

Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: Each time you play a game; try to smash as many Ash Pots as you can and you will unlock this achievement.

Short Reign
Description: Kill the Skeleton King in under 20 seconds or less.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points and a Banner Accent.
How to Complete: Having leveled up a little bit and taking on Skeleton King on the lowest difficulty setting will work wonders for this achievement.

Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck
Description: Kill the three skeleton champions: Larel, Karel, and Mock in the Drowned Temple with one attack.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: This challenge is also not as hard as it sounds. It will be available during ‘The Broken Blade’ quest. Just try to do it on the lowest difficulty setting and it won’t take long!

Cursed Captives
Description: Free 6 prisoners in 120 seconds or less during the mission Cursed Hold.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points and a Banner Accent.
How to Complete: I would advise you to have a partner during this challenge; so that you can find the prisoners faster. You can find this challenge in ‘The Imprisoned Angel’ quest.

No Time to Rest
Description: Complete Act I in one hour or less.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: Don’t waste your time on completing side-quests, random dungeons, and always have another player to complete this. Note that, logging out and leaving the game will not let you unlock this achievement.

Act-II

Good Eye
Description: Kill Belial without being hit by his projectile or meteor strike.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: This will appear in the ‘Lord of the Lies’ quest. Just do it on the lowest difficulty setting. Belial is not that hard to evade!

Why’d I Have to be Snakes
Description: Kill 10 Veiled Sentinels in 30 seconds while fighting Belial on Nightmare, Hell, or Inferno.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: The best thing to do here is to wait for Belial to summon all the Sentinels he can before you take on them. Give it a shot on the lowest difficulty setting to unlock this achievement more quickly.

Fist Missed
Description: Kill Belial without getting hit by his fist attack.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
How to Complete: Keep on changing your position and play it on the lowest difficulty setting for an easy achievement.

Bad Breath
Description: Kill Belial on Inferno without being hit by the breath attack.
Rewards: 10 Achievement Points.
