The Lost Keep Dungeon can pose a serious challenge to players, making farming unsuitable. You need to complete to following objectives to clear this dungeon:

  • Defeat the three Fractured Spirits.
  • Travel to the Desecrated Chambers to collect Animus.
  • Fill the Animus Urn.
  • Defeat the Resurrected Malice.

The first objective may look easy, but it’s not. The dungeon crawls with knights and ghosts in every corner, awaiting your arrival. They will give you a hard time with their perfect mixture of ranged and hand-to-hand combat. Reshape your build when you enter the Lost Keep in D4.

Once you have killed the Fractured Spirits and their subordinates, you need to go to the Desecrated Chambers. Here you’ll find the Animus Carriers roaming around. Several hell-spawns will guard them, and there’s a good chance they will keep coming.


So slay the Animus Carriers the get out of there. Don’t forget the Animus, as it was your main objective. You can miss them easily, so collect every smoky blob on the ground. Next, locate the Animus Urn in Diablo 4 and fill it up with the Animus you’ve Collected. This will allow you to face the boss in the boss arena.
