Diablo 3: Darkening of Tristram Guide – How to Complete the Special Event and Get All the Loot

Darkening of Tristram

As a part of Diablo’s 20th anniversary celebrations, players can participate in The Darkening of Tristram – a recreation of hellish Cathedral from the original Diablo in Reaper of Souls.

The DoT event basically teleports players back in time to encounter enemies like The Butcher and earn new loot/rewards during the process. One of the coolest things about The Darkening of Tristram is a graphics filter that Blizzard employed to give Diablo 3 a pixelated look.

The Darkening of Tristram Guide

The new event comes alongside update 2.4.3 that brings a whole lot of adjustments, gameplay improvements, and new loot. Once you have the update downloaded, you should be able to jump into the event which will only be available for the month of January.

If you need some help in walking you through the event, our Darkening of Tristram Guide details everything you need to know!

Finding the Specific Rotten Mushrooms

The first thing that you need to acquire is Rotten Mushroom. You may have a few lying in your inventory, but do not bother with them – they will not work. Anyway, continue to proceed through the dungeon as normal and try to find the Rotten Mushroom.

Brewing the Witch’s Brew

Once you have the Rotten Mushroom, you need to find a cauldron placed inside an old building. Interact with it to place the Rotten Mushroom inside and craft the Witch’s Brew. Another thing you must not do is touch the cows. However, if you somehow end up doing so, just quit and reload.

Finding the Drunkard’s Debt

Once you have the Witch’s Brew in your inventory, head to the area with all the corpses and look for a man named Farnham. What you basically need to do is to provide him with the Witch’s Brew and receive the Drunkard’s Debt in return.

Crafting Wirt’s Leg

This process can be a little confusing which is why I have placed everything in bullet points.

  • Revive Odgen to Get Garda’s Letter
  • Revive Pepin to get Healer’s Prescription
  • Revive Blacksmith to Get the Plan to Wirt’s Leg
  • Teleport back to Town and Craft Wirt’s Leg from the Blacksmith
  • Salvage Wirt’s Leg to Receive the Map to the Stars that has a Secret

Heading to Cows

If you managed to avoid touching the cows all along, you should be good to go! Head back to the cauldron and prod in the following order: middle, left, and right. Do so correctly and you should be able to access a farm area with a chest and uncover the secret.

This is all we have on our Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls – The Darkening of Tristram Guide. If there is anything else you would like to add, let us know in the comments section below!
